Joy to the world—Christmas is over! All the Larkettes have the luxury of a week off, and I plan to drink lots of coffee every morning and indulge in making something just for me. If you’re planning to do the same, enter our Make-It-For-Myself giveaway. The six prize packages are super cool—they’re filled with a random assortment of vintage needlearts paraphernalia—crochet hooks, knitting needles, and assorted gadgets. We’re grateful to the generosity of Shirley Pope, the (almost) mother-in-law of one of our Pixiq colleagues, Becky Shipkosky, who donated this treasure trove to us. And we’re tossing a skein of yarn into each package, too!
To enter for a chance to win one package, leave a comment on this post by 11 p.m. EST on January 5, 2011. Tell us what you’re making for yourself (or what you’d like to make for yourself) as the New Year approaches. Six winners will be selected at random and announced on January 6. Click here for the official rules: http://www.larkcrafts.com/uncategorized/sweepstakesrules/ Congratulations to our winners — Sarap, Laura, Melissa, Kitten with A Whiplash, Lynn, and Catherine!
If you’re inspired, upload a photo of your project to our Make-It-For-Myself flickr pool. Uploading a photo is not necessary to enter the giveaway. Here’s my project—a scarf I’m knitting with Habu stainless steel yarns. (Remember my post last month about the yarns in my stash I wanted to use?) I love the way the way it’s working up—almost like chain mail, don’tcha think? If you’re into yarn porn, here’s a detail of the fabric too.
Make a resolution—craft something beautiful for yourself in the New Year.
