Grand Opening Giveaway!

Giveaway is Closed. Thank you All for your Amazing Comments!!


Handwork Bags

I've been wanting to do a giveaway for months now but couldn't seem to find an occasion that felt special enough to do it. The Alley Cat Grand Opening seemed like a perfect chance to gift somebody with a few of my favorite things.:o)

Handwork Set


Colors to choose from

Easter Bunny

This giveaway will include one handwork bag in your choice of color, one skein of organic yarn, and the cute easter bunny from Jupiterschild.



I am also giving away an Organic Hand Knit singlet from Georgie Hallam's Eden's Adam pattern. This is one of my favorite patterns by her! It's just like the ones I've made for my girl's. Here's a photo of the last one I made before I blocked it. You can choose the lovely spring colors that I have above or a deeper version if you like. The pattern goes through a child's 10.:o)

All you have to do is comment below, and that will get you one chance at the whole kit and kaboodle.:o)

If you'd like additional chances then you can like my facebook page, become a follower, and tell a friend for a total of four.

On March 10th, my husband's birthday, I'll have him draw a name out of the hat. 

Thank you all for the opportunity to share my love of wool!!

Love and Laughter,

Wendi
