Yarn Shop Day Winner!

We are very excited to announce the winner of our draw on Saturday for Yarn Shop Day. Congratulations to Gail! She won 4 balls of Blacker rare breeds yarn. They include a Pure Polwarth in cream, Manx wool with Mohair, in a natural tan, Pure Black Welsh Mountain wool in almost black, and a Gotland in dyed blue.

Saturday was the kick off for our Summer Top KAL/CAL. It was fun to see the garments that people were planning for, we can’t wait to see them made up! Here in the shop we have cast on an infinity snood for a shop sample in The Fibre Co.’s Meadow. It’s an unusual blend of wool, baby llama, silk and linen. Despite the blend we think it would make a great summer top, and we can’t wait to show you the sample when it’s done, you’ll be able to give it a squish in person and see for yourself!

If you are planning on participating in the KAL/CAL we are over on the Ravelry group talking about our makes, feel free to join in! There is also still a 10% on all yarns that contain cotton, linen, bamboo or silk in the online shop if you need to pick up some yarn. The promotion runs until Sunday at midnight!

We would also like to announce the prizes for participants of the KAL/CAL! We will draw from finished garments posted in our FO thread by midnight on July 31st. First prize will be a gift certificate of £50 to spend online or in the shop. Second and Third prize will be goodie bags filled with yarn and patterns.

 

Once more, we’re having a give away!

I’m feeling rather festive, and have decided to run a give away on the blog. And this time the prize is rather amazing, I am giving away a goody bag filled with lovely woolliness worth nothing less than £50, and that is a lot of wool people! So to get your name in ‘the hat’ this is what you have to do: Spread the word! I’ve come up with several ways to do this, and you can choose to do one or more of the following.

Twitter – Tweet about the give away, and remember to include a link to the blog. (I am @MayaKnits by the way) This will earn you one entry to the draw.

Facebook – Post about the give away, and remember to include a link to the blog. This will earn you one entry to the draw.

Blogging – Write a little something about Knit with attitude and our give away, and again, remember to include a link to the blog. This will give you two entries to the draw.

Finally, comment on this blog post to let me know what you have done. Remember to include your twitter name, facebook name and/or blog address, so that I can check your entries.

We’ll do the draw Wednesday November 20th, and the winner will be announced here on the blog.
HURRAY! Now go on and spread the word!!!
