WYS Winwick Mum Collection yarn giveaway – results
Hello! If you read the giveaway post last Friday then it will have felt like a long time to wait until tonight when the draw was made! Thank you so much to everyone who entered – there were 560 entries which is quite amazing! I loved reading all of your comments and your lovely words (more tears – there have been so many in this yarn adventure, I’m such a softy!) and which colourway you liked the best – and I always love to know who you’re knitting for so thank you too for telling me all about that too!
I really wish that I could have sent you all a prize, but there are just four of them. Each winner has won a ball of West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4ply in the Winwick Mum colourway of their choice, plus a pattern book.
Well, I started the draw at 8.00pm as promised, but it’s taken me a long time to check through all the comments and make sure that they were all counted properly so that I could make the draw so apologies for making you wait a bit longer. I’ve used the Random Number Generator from random.org which gave me a number and then I counted through the comments to find the author and you can see results below.
Congratulations to everyone who’s won!
Please can you email me with your address so that I can get your yarn and book in the post to you? I’ve put the comment along with the number so that you don’t have to count through for yourselves to see if it’s your comment that’s been drawn – we don’t need all of us doing that tonight! 😀
You might notice that the number of comments for the giveaway post doesn’t match the number in the generator – this is because there were some replies to comments containing extra information that I didn’t want to count in the draw number; that way everybody got one entry and it made it fair.
Thank you so much for all your support for my first foray into yarn design! It has been wonderful to share it with you and now that it’s finally released, to see the yarn flying off the shelves. I can’t wait to see what it becomes! Incredibly, I’ve seen the first few socks appearing already on social media so if you’ve got some on your needles, please do tag me on Facebook or Instagram so that I can see too. I love that so many of you have your own stories which match with the colours of the yarn and I feel privileged to share in them with you, thank you.
It’s the Sockalong’s 4th birthday in just a couple of weeks and I should have got my breath back by then for the annual giveaway that goes with that so if you didn’t win in this one, there’s another chance coming up … I’ll keep you posted!
Huge thanks to West Yorkshire Spinners for giving me the yarn and pattern books to give away to you! xx
