I thought it would be fun to have a contest on the blog since I so rarely do that. Having 3 samples for one pattern gave me a (hopefully!) great idea: Give away 2 of them!
So to celebrate the publication of the Leila pattern, I'm doing it! All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me two things:
I'll give you a week (until midnight eastern time on Thursday night/Friday morning) to leave your comment. On next Friday, July 31st, 2009, I'll pick 2 people randomly and mail your chosen shawlette to you!
To help you make up your mind, here's better pictures of each shawlette with yarn descriptions:
From left to right, we'll call them: Purple, Aqua, and Wine
The purple shawlette was knit in Socks that Rock Lightweight in color Tanzanite
The aqua shawlette was knit with Koigu KPPPM in color P903
The wine shawlette was knit in Fleece Artist Merinoe 2/6 (colorway unknown)
All 3 are about 19" down the center back and 39" across, but the wine one did come out a tiny bit smaller (not really noticeable). All 3 have been blocked and the different merinos are all very soft after washing. The only important difference is the color!
Please note: After announcing the winners I'll be contacting them via email to get their shipping addresses. I'll be using the email address you leave in your comment, so please leave a real address that you actually check!
And yes, I'll ship anywhere, even if you're outside the US!
UPDATE: The contest is now over! Congratulations to Melissa and Fairyknits!
