Who doesn't love a birthday celebration?!! ♥ Today is the 3rd birthday of Little Brown Owl - three years since I decided to listen to my friends and do custom knitting for a whole bunch of lovely people I didn't know! Wow, what a full-on, crazy, busy, hectic, fun, exciting three years it's been!!
So, what could be better than a Birthday Giveaway, just for you - all the wonderful people who have stayed with me and asked me to knit them all the things!! Recently I was shopping a new yarn store I found on Facebook, called Tangle & Stash, as you do... and what did I find, but some hand-dyed wool in a colourway I just couldn't refuse - "Little Brown Owl".
So I snaffled it up and tried to figure out how I could use this lovely unisex yarn to create a prize for someone... Now, my time at the moment is pretty limited as I have a whole bunch of woolly orders coming up to winter, some gifts to knit, showcases to knit for, a family who all need jumpers and cardigans for winter and a 4yo who wants "sparkly socks" for her upcoming birthday!
So, here's the plan... rather than me knit something and it be the wrong size, I'm offering up a FREE custom spot as a prize to a randomly chosen entrant using this OOAK "Little Brown Owl" wool from Tangle & Stash!!! AND - the winner gets to choose what they'd like knitted with it! Perhaps you'd love a Milo vest, or a Hot Shot vestee, a Mud Puddles, or a Tama. The options are almost endless - but please check out my available styles - here - and see what you like the look of!! Sorry, I know there's a lot of choice! lol
So, what do you have to do? Simple! Like my Facebook page - Little Brown Owl, follow this blog, and comment below saying which style and approximate size you'd like to win (size will be confirmed with the winner following the draw). Entries will close 8.30pm AEST Tuesday 30th April 2013. I will use random.org to choose the winner. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!!
***Important Edit***: I have about 434m of this DK/8ply machine-wash wool available here to use (although I may also be able to find a matching trim colour in my stash), therefore some larger garments won't be possible, nor would workable cloth nappy covers be possible (due to the machine-wash treatment of the wool). If you're not sure if a pattern will work, please ask - and if I notice anything in the comments that isn't possible I'll let you know so you can make an alternative choice.
I can't wait to see what you choose to have knitted with this - good luck!!! :D
