Beginning to pay things forward - giveaway no.1


Apologies for not posting this earlier in the week, but I have been struggling with an absolute stinker of a cough and cold and it's taken all my energy just to get to work each day. But better late than never, here I am! Having been on the receiving end of so much kindness and generosity from a huge number of yarny folk since Mr JK died, I decided that over the course of 2017, I want to pay forward some of that kindness. There will be giveaways throughout the year; you'll just have to keep checking my blog and Instagram feed to see when they're happening!

To start off the year, I picked up a really lovely haberdashery pouch at Loop last weekend and I'm also throwing in a cute 'Flo' stitch marker, made for me by Sarah at Fripperies & Bibelots. The pouch is limited edition and hand embroidered, perfect for keeping your favourite notions in. And who can resist a stitch marker made in honour of Flo?! 







The giveway is open until midnight on January 31st and I'll post worldwide. To be in with a chance of winning, just leave me a comment and if you're on Ravelry or Instagram, make sure you tell me your name so if you win, it's easy for me to get in touch with you! Good luck! xxx

That looks just like my yarn assistant 'Danny'. He thinks all blankets are his, and all yarn needs to be chewed to check for weakness. (I'm Knotbobzilla on Ravelry)

What a beautiful pouch and lucky Flo having her very own stitch marker! I hope you soon get over your cold - there seems to be a lot of lurgy about at the moment. Keep warm. xx

My daughter has a black rescue cat - he looks like butter wouldn't melt but so far he has bitten everyone except me and can break into the fridge to steal the food ( they now have a lock on it) but he makes me smile when I see his antics! I'm sarah35 on rav, just incase 😃 xx
