Provide Comfort During Challenging Times: A “Healing Shawls” Giveaway!

October 23rd, 2015

HealingShawlsGiveawayIMAGE
We’ve appreciated your stories about knitting and crocheting for friends or loved ones during challenging times, and in response, we’re bringing you a book filled with beautiful crochet shawl patterns, Healing Shawls (Crochet) by Leisure Arts.

We understand that words may not always be enough when it comes to expressing concern or hope for someone else’s well-being. When friends and family are faced with difficult circumstances, sometimes the best way to show or tell them you care is to make something for them. Giving someone a handmade gift is a great way to show your support; a handmade gift is always heartfelt and appreciated.

Perhaps you know someone who is ill, has faced a financial setback, or is working through a personal difficulty like a job loss or divorce — a comforting shawl can be a great gift to give. The shawl is symbolic of the hug you’d give them if you were there. When knitting or crocheting the shawl, it’s also a nice to think positively about the recipient to transfer the energies of well intentions; it becomes a meditative process.

In addition to 15 beautiful shawl designs, this book also features personal stories from people who have made and given healing shawls for people they care about. Today, we’re giving two lucky winners the chance to win a copy of the Healing Shawl book along with 6 skeins of Landscapes® in a color of your choice, to make the Striated Triangles Shawl.

EnchantedKnitsGiveawayImageNicky Epstein’s newest book, “Enchanted Knits for Dolls“, is a collection of 25 amazingly creative costumes for 18-inch dolls (such as dolls from the American Girl collection). This book release is perfect for the upcoming holidays, giving you enough time to knit something special for the little girl in your life.

Nicky has given these dolls unique personas by adorning them with meticulously crafted outfits. These fun costumes are diverse and will appeal to the interests of many young children. They can dress their dolls as an ethereal flower fairy, a whimsical witch, an exotic genie, a pirate, and so much more. There are even four specially created pattern sets for both the child and the doll, so they can match and be twins (#twinning!).

Last month, our Brand Ambassador, Shira Blumenthal had the pleasure of interviewing Nicky at our store — the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in New York City — for a Tea with Shira episode. You can see some of Nicky’s fabulous doll designs below!

Seamless Knits for Posh Pups: A Giveaway!

August 14th, 2015

Pin It

Today, I’m excited to bring you a giveaway featuring Sharon Sebrow’s latest book, Seamless Knits for Posh Pups! Cats have been dominating the Internet lately, but let’s not forget about “man’s best friend.”

Sharon’s dog sweaters are top-down knits (or can be worked from the bottom up), which makes it easy for you to knit one continuous piece for your furry friend. Inspired by the lack of seamless knits for her own pup, Sharon knitted classic designs which can be modified to your liking; play with different textures, color combinations, and styles.

Below, you can see the simple construction which has been finished two different ways. Otis is sporting a hooded sweater, while Cecil has a classic turtleneck. Both are cute, but who do you want to cast your vote for as the cutest design?

3 lucky winners will be chosen to receive a copy of the book and 2 balls of Vanna’s Choice® yarn. Contest ends on August 27th.

* U.S Residents only (see the fine print under the images below)
* A comment will not be counted as a vote. After you vote, be sure to enter your name and email – we need to know who you are if you win!
