At last - my promised Scandinavian 'knitty' sample pieces Giveaway! I showed a little sneaky peak of these knits a little while back - I've now got two completed sample pieces which I used to hone my colour knitting skills (using a colour-block design from 150 Scandinavian Knitting Designs by Mary Jane Mucklestone) . It seemed a shame not to do anything with them - so why not have a little giveaway I thought :) . . .
I've added a chunky little zip to the two sample knits to create a very rustic purse - don't look at the hand-sewing too closely now - ooops! (they're not lined either - VERY rustic!) I loved doing this pattern though and while doing it I solved a little query I had with keeping the reverse floats neat and tidy, so thankyou for that, hehe!
As you can see there's a red and white one . . .
. . . and a black and grey one . . .
Now you must have spotted my new 'handmade by Tweed Delights' stamp - I'm so excited by my new crafty purchase LOL! I've been wanting one of these for a long time, and finally this week I decide to go for the plunge - I love it :) It's made by a wood mounted rubber stamp - using a traditional ink pad. I really like how each imprint is always going to be a little different . . .
aren't they fun?, *sigh * - it's the little things in life that bring so much pleasure, hehe!
Anyhow, I'm giving the two little purses up for grabs in a giveaway - just state which one you would like - red or black. Make sure you leave a contact e-mail address if you don't have a blog so I can contact you if you win. I'll post anywhere in the world of course!
These were fun to make while I was making preps for eldest son fleeing the roost and I was very glad to have them as a little distraction amongst all the angst and chaos (my own of course!)
I'll leave the Giveaway open until next Thursday (3rd October) 12 noon. I'll announce the winner within a couple of days of the closing date.
A little celebration giveaway to mark my return to crafting - well, why not?, it's nice to share :) :) I'll try and pop some other little goodies in too - I must go and have a rummage for that :D
There are no terms or conditions attached to the Giveaway - just leave a comment - perhaps saying what you would use your little purse for (plus your choice of colour) and keep your fingers crossed! See you next Thursday - in the meantime I must make some 'tweedie' goodies to attach my new labels to - must dash, byeee :)
