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.



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 ...


Brightside ...


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.

  3. I'd love to win either Hidden Gem, as I would treat myself to some socks with it.
    Or Brightside, and then I'd knit them for my dad who loves bright socks.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Brightside is my favourite... Though I'm not sure if I should make socks out of it as a gift, or if I should be selfish and make them for myself... ;)

  5. Christine, I would love the Seascape yarn and a pattern book. Have only ever used your basic sock pattern. I feel the need to try something different, this could be the push I need. I would probably knit them for myself or my daughter as we love knitted socks!!

  15. Seascape is just beautiful and although I love them all I think this one would be perfect for a friend who’s getting over a horrible experience with meningitis, just her colours. Chances are I’m going to have to buy them all anyway as WYS is my favourite sock yarn and the colours are fabulous.

  67. Hi Christine, What a lovely thing to do, I love all the colours, but would love to win a ball of Seascape (but will be grateful to win any of the colours!) to knit a pair of socks for our family friend who is only 32 and been fighting cancer for 4 years. She has recently been told that there is nothing more they can do for her. So when I saw the seascape I thought of how she loves her trips to LLandudno. She was the reason I started making socks as she saw some WYS rum paradise on your FB group and that is where my sock knitting journey started! jean.keig@live.co.uk (not sure if my gmail works anymore as I have never used it lol) Thank you. Jean Keig x

  69. Wildflower think it's just the colours for spring time.With all the colours of nature popping their little heads.

  71. Seascape would be the favourite of my daughter, she is easy to knit for as she often wears odd socks which really lends itself to my second sock syndrome!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Stunning colours so hard to choose! I’d say wildflowers and I’d knit them for my mum. I’ve made quite a few pairs for dad and she deserves socks too

  80. As purple and amythest are my favourite things, it has to be hidden gem please :-) although any of the others come a close second.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Sch a generous prize. I'm afraid I couldn't choose just one. But my daughters fav are seascape for my eldest who is 9 she'd love a pair or two of those. Not quite a girly colour but suitable for a tomboy lol and hidden gem for my other daughter who's almost 7 as she's all girly for pinks and purples. And for me I already have a ball of each for myself and little boy who just turned two. Thank you so much for sharing your amazing journey and wonderful sock know how. All the best, Katrina Griffiths xx

  91. It's almost impossible to choose a favourite! If pushed, I'd pick Hidden Gem for myself or Brightside for my other half; I recently made him his first pair of hand knitted socks and he's now demanding more!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Hidden Gem is just wonderful! I’d aim to make a pair for my mum I think... cause she’s lovely and would appreciate the heck out of them :)

  125. Its has to be Seascape to be a reminder of Cornwall for my beautiful daughter in law who is going through a tough time at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Congratulations and you must be so proud to have inspired so many.
    A pair is socks or even just 1 completed will be a huge achievement for me as a complete sock numpty. I now have to master this as the yarn is so beautiful. No favourites love them all and any one of them would be fantastic.

    ReplyDelete
  127. Oh I just love Seascape. I’d knit these stripey socks for me, these are some of my favourite colours.

    ReplyDelete
  128. My order of Wildflower and Brightside (with contrasting yarns) arrived today and they are beautiful. If possible, I'd love to try knitting with either Hidden Gem or Seascape too - don't really mind which. But what I'd really love is your pattern book! I knit socks to raise funds for my churches; visitors here in the Highlands buy them for walking in and the beautiful colours go down well with everyone as a contrast to utilitarian offerings available commercially.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I love all the colours but need the Hidden Gem for my gorgeous daughter in laws socks please.

    ReplyDelete
  130. The wild flower is gorgeous, I think I would be selfish and knit them for me!

  132. I'd be happy to win any of those beautiful colours! It must seem so surreal to have your own WYS yarn! Thanks to your sock along way back when, I was first introduced to WYS yarn and it's been my go to sock yarn ever since. Sadie Garrod x

    ReplyDelete
  138. As a lover of blue normally I would say Sea scape. But I think I would go for Hidden Gem I'd knit socks for my daughter as she's feeling a bit low at the moment. She loves purple and her dad had an amethyst, he would have been 60 this year.

    ReplyDelete
  139. I would love the seascape one pls, though all the colours are lovely. I would knit some socks for my teenage son who is waiting for me to knit him a pair. I'm knitting socks atm in the car (not driving) using your supeesocks pattern. Cathy x

I began after being introduced to your Facebook page when visiting my dying mother in England , so I’d love to win either the wildflower as mum loved flowers or seascape as her favorite colour was blue. I’d like to knit them for myself in memory of my mum as most socks I’ve knitted so far I have given away.��. Thank you for introducing me to sock knitting. My mum loved to knit also.

  146. Congratulations on your beautiful collection! They are all such gorgeous colours! I think that I would like either Hidden gem or Wildflower please. Seascape is on its way here (Australia) from Wool warehouse but with Easter it might take a bit longer. I like to knit socks for my family, lots of cosy toes ready for our winter 😊

  147. They are all so beautiful but I love hidden gem as my favourite colour is purple. I would probably make them for my mum as she lives miles away and I don't get to see her as much as I want too. I wish you every success with this yarn and hope you continue to bring out new colours!

    What a wonderful giveaway! All so beautiful, it feels unfair to choose one over the others! I’d be delighted to make socks with any of these, but as you want us to pick one, my daughter suggests Hidden Gem would suit me very well. ����

  149. Ooooo what a lovely giveaway! Well..... they are all gorgeous, but the one that I would really love to win would be wild flower. I love the streak of yellow which harmonises beautifully with the other colours, I also like the name as I love wildflowers. I might knit socks for my daughter or I might be selfish and knit them for myself!

  150. My choice (and the one I'm saving for!) is seascape - not only do I love the colours but it also reminds me of days spent on the beach and walking along the coast.

  151. Love the colours in wildflower! These would have to be a pair for myself. All the patterns in the book look fab too!

  152. Omg! What a wonderful prize, with four chances to boot 👏🏻🤓🤓. How I would love a copy of your new knitting book and a ball of yarn. I love all the colours so if I am lucky enough to win a prize I don’t mind which. These socks would be for me. Thank you Christine and WYS for this opportunity. Happy Easter. Xx

  155. Sweet :) Thank you for such a lovely blog.
    I'd love to knit Wildflower and i guess I would keep my socks to myself because since I've discovered hand knitted socks they keep my feet warm all winter long. Then again there are friends always waiting for a new pair.

It's amazing to be included in a like minded group. Thank you Christine. I'm sure your wool will be a huge success - you deserve it. Good luck everyone in this giveaway xxx

  170. Oh how lovely! I am yet to complete a sock, but the book and the yarn is so inspiring �� Having seen the photos I think my favourite is actually Seascape.. and living in Northumberland with our beautiful coast, it seems a rather appropriate choice. Thank you for the chance

  171. I like sea scape and I'd knit them for myself as I'm always knitting for others and never myself

  175. I just received your 1st book Christine a few weeks ago so I have allot to look forward to this week-end. I've never knitted socks so it will be a challenge. The sock would be for me and the color would be sea scape!! By the way the pictures in the new book look beautiful.

  183. I have to go for Seascape as blue is my favourite colour and the different shades are lovely. And they would be for me! I have made 2 pairs from the basic pattern - one as a gift - and am now on easy lace. Thank you for opening up the world of socks 😀 Anna

  185. All of the colors are luscious in their own rights, but I would choose Hidden Gem and gift the yarn to my purple-loving daughter-in-law who wants to try knitting socks. [if it was for me, I would pick Wildflowers :) ]
