It's another Friday Giveaway

It's Friday! So you know what that means?? Part 2 of the National Sewing Month Giveaway.

Today I thought I would offer something for the knitters out there. Last year I tried to start knitting, but never got past scarves. The Sugar n Cream yarn makes great washcloths.

And I understand the Rosewood knitting needles are great to work with.

So if you would enjoy working with this yarn and needles, leave a comment on this blog post. What kinds of things do you Crochet or knit?? Please be sure that I have a way to contact you via email. This giveaway will run through the end of the month, along with my other Friday Giveaways. Remember followers can leave a second comment for an additional entry.

Next Friday there will be another giveaway, so come back and check out what's in store :-)

Happy Quilting (and knitting!)

I LOVE this yarn for dish cloths and wash cloths. My Dad was in the hospital recently and it was the perfect small project to work on while I was visiting my parents. Great stress reliever and cheaper than chocolate!

Knitting and crocheting were my first loves. I use to make afghans! My daughter has the bug now. She actually knit a dress! I bought her a homemade yarn bowl for Christmas and the needles and yarn would look great in it! Thanks for a chance.

Allie said...

What a lovely giveaway! I love that yarn, it's my favorite to work with - especially for dish cloths. I usually crochet, but have decided that this winter, I'm learning to knit. I love the look of knitting, better than crochet. I've tried to knit in the past, but that was before the internet, I know I'll find lots of videos to help me!

I haven't knitted in a while, but when I did, I loved to do some purses or hats. The dishcloths would be great to try since I can't find any that I have liked for a long time.

This is my second comment - I'm a follower. I just realized that the pink/blue is exactly the kind of yard/thread that my sister uses for her baby blankets! Her husband's niece is having twin boys, so my Sis is busily making two blankets.

Pam said...

I have not done a lot of knitting-did knit some scarves and hats. I am better at crocheting-made some shawls, afghans, hats and wash cloths.

Dora, the Quilter said...

Years ago I made a pullover vest with Sugar and Cream. Lately, I've been knitting footies and socks--thinking about shawls.
The rosewood needles are lovely!

Vesuviusmama said...

My twin sister is the knitter - I'm the quilter. But she has promised to teach me, so I'd love to have some of the tools of the trade. I've learned from quilting - I will want to start with something small and simple, like washcloths.

Oh my goodness! I use the Peaches and cream for my dishcloths that I make but I just found some patterns for crocheted slippers and it uses this sugar and cream yarn!!! I want to win!!!! lol

quiltzyx said...

I've just recently learned how to use a pattern to crochet, so have been able to move on from scarves! lol I've made several "String Bags" and some fun Amigurumi (sp?) creatures - 2 cat doorstops, a dachshund & some cat toys. :D
Thanks for the chance to win - maybe with these needles I'll be able to learn how to knit too.

yarner said...

I love knitting and crocheting so I am definitely in for this! I enjoy knitting and crocheting just about anything. I especially find it fun to make baby clothing. Knitting tiny booties, crocheting hats and dresses, and the like. Lots of fun, and so rewarding!

Bev C said...

Thank you for the opportunity to enter your giveaway. I could crochet something for my family and mu Mum could teach me to knit (again!!!)
happy days.

Mom C said...

Love that yarn for dishcloths. I'm not a great knitter, I crochet mainly dishcloths and hats. I like to take small projects when I travel, they keep my hands busy and my mind is still free to listen and participate. Sometimes I'll be visiting family and someone will need a hat or scarf or even dishcloth and I can sit and whip one out in short order. And bask in the cries of admiration.

I used Sugar and Cream for baby rattle toys. For Easter I had made a carrot and Bunny. It's great yarn if you are looking for yarn that doesn't "fuzz up" easily. And throwing them in the washer was great!
