I've been really lucky in the past couple of weeks and won 2 giveaways, so I just wanted to say a big thank you to the people who kindly hosted them
Firstly Danielle from A Stash Addict who I have been an avid reader of for a while. I love her blog, which is really stylish, and she also dyes yummy looking yarn (guess what I've asked for for Christmas?)
Anyway, she held a giveaway for all the items needed to make a yarn wreath (any a lot more besides) which I won =)
Full credit to Danielle for the picture, I couldn't take one this well. It's a amazing collection of things, including 3 gorgeous multicoloured crochet hooks (the world is telling me to learn to crochet, and I'm trying not to listen until after my dissertation deadline), felt in rainbow colours, vintage yarn and in the corner, a packet of bead and 4 little heart shaped buttons! Plus this stitch marker, which doesn't seem to appear in the above photograph!
Then I got an email telling me that I had won the complete Knitcircus Issue 16 pattern collection from a giveaway on Lindsey's blog Poetry in Yarn. Which means I get to make gorgeous patterns like these:
Full credit to the magazine for these pictures. Also, the mittens at the top were designed by Odessa, another person whose blog is a good read!
