Yarn Giveaway!

Here it is, a giveaway to get you started on some Christmas knitting!  After all, it is almost May.  I don't know about you, but I have so many people I knit for that if I haven't started by now, I may not get it all in! These three lovely skeins of burgundy Jamieson Double Knitting yarn are enough to make a hat or mittens and get you on your way to some early-bird knitting.





Here's the scoop! There are several ways to increase your chances of winning. One chance for each of these!

1.  Become a follower of Strings of Purls using the friend connect button on the right and leave a comment telling me that you did so. If you are already a follower, no problem. Just leave me a comment that you are already a follower of my blog.
2. Blog about it! Write up a blurb about the giveaway on your blog linking back to my blog. Come back to Strings of Purls and leave a comment with the link for another chance!

3. In a separate comment, tell me your favorite gift to knit for friends or family!

The winner will be chosen and announced on May 6th!  Good luck!

  2. I love to knit afghans. They don't require measurements or fitting. They are forgiving of gauge and give me a chance to show off fancy stitch patterns. And they are useful in this day and age when people are trying to be eco-friendly and cut down on heating bills.

  5. I love to knit hats and scarves, but am looking forward to more gloves! As a child my grandmother always had a stock pile of knitted gloves for us...I'd like to have that for my children as well.

  11. My favourite things to knit (or in my case, crochet) for presents varies according to the person... I love to make toy food for my neices. I really try to make something that I am certain they will like. Lately, beanies have been my go to present, as it is heading into winter.
