knit now give-away

I finally received my copies of the Knit Now issue in which my patterns were published. It's rather fun to see my patterns in this format: the little booklet is lovely, and the perfect size to fit in a knitting bag. I'm also looking forward to browsing the magazine, to see if there's any projects I'd like to knit.


They were generous enough to give me several copies. One I will keep for myself, and a few will go to my fabulous test-knitters, who help me without much compensation (maybe because they're my cousins). And I have one copy to give away to some lucky blog reader!

Inside a plastic sleeve you'll get a copy of Knit Now issue 24, the Woodland Friends booklet, a baby blanket pattern, and a set of cable needles. If you'd like to enter, please leave a comment here with a way to contact you (you'll have to write out your email address because blogger doesn't let me contact you via comments, but disguise it a bit if it makes you more comfortable). I'll cover the shipping cost to you by regular mail, anywhere in the world.

The give-away will be open for a week, and I'll choose a winner by random number next Friday morning, August 16.

Update (August 17th): Yesterday ended up being super busy for me, and I had no time to think about the give-away. I'll do the draw later today, and announce the winner below. (Bonus, you can still leave a comment to enter up until I draw the name)

Congratulations to colindabeertje! I'll send the magazine off to you on Monday, and I hope you enjoy it. To everyone else, thank you so much for leaving your lovely comments.
