10th anniversary give-away: Holiday Mice

I opened my first shop on Etsy, November 5, 2006. At the beginning, I was just selling toys I had knit, not patterns. Those only came when other knitters saw my toys, and wanted to knit some themselves. It's been a crazy, fun adventure of yarn and cuteness since that day! Sometimes I miss knitting toys for my shop. I'm so busy designing now, I can only manage to make extra toys for family and friends.

One of the first toys I made for my Etsy shop.
My designs have changed a bit since then!

For my final give-away contest, in honour of those first toys I knit, you could win a pair of Holiday Mice! The winner will be free to choose the colour of the mice, and the style and colour of the hats. You could even ask for a wee Santa Mouse, like this one by the Yarn Harlot (I'm still blushing a bit over that). I will pick the closest yarn I can from my stash. Hopefully, I will have them done and off to the winner in time for winter holidays!

Holiday Mice: what colours would you choose?

If you would like a chance to win this prize, please leave a comment below, with a way of contacting you (email, Ravelry name, etc. I've been asking for this because usually Blogger does not give me this information when you leave a comment). I will do my best to ship to anywhere in the world. I will draw a random winner on November 15.

Best of luck, and thanks for visiting me this week!

I was turned on to your patterns by the Yarn Harlot (thank you, Stephanie!), and you do amazing things. I would love-love-love to be the recipient of mice made by your very own hands!

This is such a great priz e! Adorable little mice that you don't have to make yourself, lol. I love them in Christmasy colors :) rav I'd showandtellmeg

Melissa said...

I've been wanting to knit some of your toys for ages. The designs are just adorable. I might need to make one soon for a friend's little boy to be. Maybe a kitty or a bunny... You have a real gift for designing animals that look both friendly and doll-like but still keep the character of the real creature from nature.

The only thing better than knitting your patterns would be getting one YOU knit! :) And I apologize for not being around in the group as much this year, but sometimes life happens.

I love your patterns! They always knit up so well and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. I knitted your bunny dressed in a little blue jacket and he is now the beloved bedtime companion of my 10 year old and I knit him way back when she was a baby girl!
Congratulations on your anniversary!

Lovely little mice. Would look so cute on my mantelpiece

Your little knit mice are so sweet! I've always been a bit bigoted toward mice. They like to build a home in my car's engine block and eat the wiring:(. Perhaps small knit mice would change my heart:)
