Holiday gifts: start knitting now! (yarn giveaway)


Don’t believe that time flies? Here’s a convincing argument: there are only 23 weeks until Christmas.

Eep! How many Christmas knitting projects can you complete in a week? July means it’s time to make a list of your Christmas craft ideas and start working (or sprinting) toward the goal.

Our friends at Cascade Yarns have been spending time in their yarn labs lately brewing brand new colors, and we couldn’t be more excited. They have generously sponsored today’s giveaway with two skeins of their Heritage Prints yarn in the dashing new color, "Holidays." Candy-cane-a-licious!

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Carol, who says:

"I like to knit for my five nieces. I don’t get to see them often as they live far  away.  Always nice to have hand made items for family members."

Carol, we’ll email you about your prize. Congratulations!
