Pin It

In continuation of celebrating spring here on the blog, I have a new giveaway that I’m excited to announce.  One lucky winner will have the chance to win a set of 5 Vanna’s Choice® Baby yarns, and 2 pairs of scissors, courtesy of Fiskars (The World’s #1 Scissor Brand™): The Original Orange-Handled Scissors™ and the 4″ Folding Scissors™ to make the Bright Stripes Baby Afghan (Crochet Pattern).

The Vanna’s Choice Baby colors included in the giveaway are sure reminders of the beautiful flowers and blooms currently decorating gardens and yards.  This afghan will be a pleasure to make, especially if you sit outside and enjoy nature as you work!

    I am left handed. ARe these scissors universal or can we choose left handed?

    • Amy F.

      I echo Amanda… As a lefty, the molding on the handle matters a great deal to me.

    • Brandyce

      Hi Amanda, the orange handled scissors are designed for right handed people. The options above are the only scissors of choice, as we already have them packaged as a giveaway bundle. But, in case you’re interested – Fiskars does make an 8″ lefty scissor, if you click on the link, it will take you to an Amazon link with the lefty scissors for sale: http://lby.co/11JM3pk I hope that helps!

    • Sue H

      The small folding scissors are universal, but the larger ones are right-handed ones. Fiskar does make left-handed ones. I don’t know why, but some left-handed ones have left-handed blades, and others have right-handed ones. I have both. Guess I have at least 4 or 5 pairs of Fiskars, my favorite brand. If I win, I’d give the right-handed scissors to my sister.

    Can always use scissors and yarn. Colors are wonderful

  • vrdav1

    Lately there are a lot of babies being born-all boys. What little guy wouldn’t love cuddling up to this blanket with it’s great colors from birth to 1st grade or beyond. Fiskars have always been may favorites…not that I can keep up with them for long. (I think they are hiding out with mt stitch holders and tapestry needles…somewhere in this house…)

    Would love to win a kit for a baby afghan. We always need scissors, thanks so much.

  • monica

    The Vanna yarn is my favorite…..and scissors are always getting either dull or misplaced.

  • Colleen

    I adore working with Vanna’s yarn. Its so soft and the colors are wonderful. I try to make all my blankets with this yarn.

  • limpy47

    I would love to to win this because I have a very good friend who is expecting her first baby. aShe is having a boy

  • “Nana” Nancy Henry

    I would love to win this kit and make the afghan for the babies being born in home church. It seems we have had a boom on boys and they should have cuddly blankets as well as the little girls. I love using Vanna’s yarns; they always make up so nice and really last. And I could really use some good scissors for all my yarn work.

  • Trinidad Furelos

    Es la primera vez que participo ,a ver si me toca.

    • Aurora

      jeje, lo mismo digo ;)

      Suerte!

  • Dee

    This would be a great project for our charity knitting group. I’d like to do something other than scarves and hats.

  • Mary Nielsen

    I make scarves for the homeless and blankets for kids going through cancer treatments and could really use the yarn and scissors. Thank you!

  • ROSE

    I HAVE BEEN CROCHETING SINCE I WAS 16, VANNA IS SUCH AN INSPIRATION. I UNDERSTAND HER DESIRE FOR CROCHETING. I JUST CAN’T LEAVE YARN ALONE. I TEACH CROCHET TO SENIORS IN “OUR TOWN” AND WE USE A BUNCH OF YARN. AND SCISSORS. IT NEVER SEEMS TO AMAZE ME HOW SCISSORS DISAPPEAR.
    WISH ME LUCK …………….R

  • Clairemk

    Been crocheting since I was 16. Just love it. Now I crochet blankets for orphans around the world with the Jabez Blanket Ministry…. A small grassroots org. which relies entirely on donated yarns. Taught my developmentally delayed daughter how to crochet and she’s on her 6th blanket for Jabez….gives her pleasure and helps her self-esteem!

  • Yahoo

    I love Vanna’s Yarn! I have a Crochet Friday group in my home and we make hats for the homeless. Would love to share this yarn with my friends! :-)

  • Norma

    WoW! Not only gorgeous yarns but, for me, badly-needed wonderful scissors. No more knitting or crocheting for me right now since I have my fingers crossed to win. N.

  • marion

  • Joey

    Love these colors – it’s like a bright rainbow!!

  • Judy knits

  • barbara

    I love this pattern – with 2 new babies coming this year – i will be busy. Great colors too!!!

  • Annette

    The colorway for this afghan is gorgeous. I’ve used this particular yarn before and it is a treat to work with!

  • Debbie

    I am an avid crocheter. I have made many afghans and doilies for over 40 years. I have but just 3 doilies that I made for myself. Handmade gifts are better than something you grab off the shelf.

  • Donna Wheeler

    My husband keeps wanting my scissors. I have to hide them from him. I do a lot of knitting, and I can do some crocheting, but I love to knit. I am always working on sme project. Would love to win this. I have a new grand baby and I will be making her a afghan.
