WYS Winwick Mum Collection yarn – giveaway!
Wow, what a week it’s been!
The Winwick Mum Collection yarn has been arriving in yarn shops all over the world (the world!!) and it’s been truly amazing to see the wonderful reactions on social media this week. 💕THANK YOU SO MUCH 💕to you if you’re a yarn shop and you’re stocking it, or if you’re a sock knitter and you’ve bought it. I can’t wait to see your projects as you knit it up, so do keep tagging me into social media posts or sending me your pictures so that I can see!
Today, I have something super-exciting to share with you … a giveaway! Yes! The lovely peeps at West Yorkshire Spinners have sent me yarn and pattern books for me to give away through the blog which is always a fun thing to be able to do.
THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! YOU CAN STILL GET YOUR HANDS ON A COPY OF THE BOOK FROM YOUR LOCAL WYS STOCKIST OR ONLINE.
Rather than have just one winner, there are going to be FOUR, and I’ve got a pattern book and a ball of brand new, hot from the mill, Winwick Mum yarn to go with each of them.
The pattern book is beautiful. It’s got the gorgeous photos from the photo shoot and the clever graphics team at WYS have matched up the photos with the inspiration for the yarns that I talked about in this post. They’ve even found photos of where I used to go for my childhood holidays, the inspiration for the Seascape yarn! This makes it feel like a very special book indeed, and one that I know that I would love to look through even if I wasn’t a sock knitter.
The book has five patterns in it – one for each of the colours. There’s Wildflower …
Hidden Gem …
and Seascape …
and a basic sock pattern using each of the four heel flap types from the patterned socks so that you can mix and match the heels. I love the idea of there being a basic sock pattern in here as well – it makes it a proper go-to book for a knitter’s bookshelf, whatever your skill level.
I’ve designed all of these patterns for “adventurous beginners”. What’s an adventurous beginner? It’s someone who’s ready to give it a go, to get their needles out and cast on even if they think that their skills are up to it just yet. I’d say that you might surprise yourself! I’m all for creating fearless knitters – after all, what’s the worst that can happen? It’s just yarn and pointy sticks and the type of stitches that you may well have knitted many, many times before. The prize is a pair of socks that you might never have believed you can knit … well worth the effort, I’d say!
So, enough of my ramblings, I’m sure you want to know how to get your hands on the book and the yarn!
HERE’S HOW TO TAKE PART
Just leave me a comment telling me which colour you would like to win. It’s that easy! If you’d like to tell me who you’re going to knit your socks for as well, I’d love to know because I’m nosey, but it’s not compulsory 😀. Just one entry per person, please! **Don’t worry if you don’t see your comment come up straight away as there’s always a delay whilst comments get checked to make sure they’re not spam. Also, you should be able to post without logging in but don’t forget to add your name so that I can contact you if you win!**
I’ll make the draw on Friday 29 April 2019 at around 8pm BST so that there’s plenty of time for people to see this post, even with the Easter weekend break, and I’ll let you know who’s won on the blog so the winners can get in touch with me for their prize. The prize is one ball of yarn and one book per winner, and I’ll make the draw using the random.org wizard.
I’ll post anywhere in the world so everybody gets a chance to enter.
Good luck! xx
The giveaway is now closed, thank you so much to everyone who took part, and for your lovely comments! You can find the results of the draw here.
