it's time for an "I'm OLD" giveaway!

I may have mentioned a few times that I'm about to turn 30. Three decades are worthy of a big celebration, so i'm having a giveaway!

First, the prize:
Blog Contest Prize
2 skeins of Malabrigo lace in Oceanos

4oz of 50/50 superwash merino/tencel that I will dye in colors you request. If you are a spinner I'd be happy to send you the dyed fiber. If you are not a spinner, I will dye and spin it for you and send you the skein of handspun yarn in the weight you request, from fingering to bulky. *No lace please, but only because it'd take me too long to finish.

Your choice of the Walden sample shawls, in either Malabrigo Sock or Squoosh MCN.

I'll also throw in a few surprise goodies.

How do you win?

Leave a comment on this post by Tuesday, July 20. I will draw the winner on my birthday, Wednesday, July 21.

Would you like additional chances to win?

Every pattern purchase from my ravelry store from now until July 20 will be entered into the prize drawing. The winner will be selected via random number generator. So the more patterns you purchase, the more chances you have to win. The 10% off sale is still in effect to the end of the month.

Good Luck!

  6. Only 30? I have always been looking forward to become 30. I still do - and I am pretty close to 30 now.

    You have some really great gifts - and I would be honoured, if I won.

    Happy Birthday! Just remember "how old" you felt at 30, when you turn my age - 55! Chances are, you'll find you really felt very young!
