Melissa's Kre8tions Giveaway







Where did Spring go? It was in the mid 70s last week and now, I have to put my coat on to go outside? Seriously? I'm ready for warm weather!
I'm one of those knitter types that will fondle yarn all year long. It drives my Dad nuts- "How can you knit in 85 degree weather?!" he'll exclaim. Simple, I say: "A little invention called air conditioning". Besides, if you knit gifts for Christmas, getting a jump start on the holidays means starting in August- am I right?
Do you remember those fingerless mitts I was wearing in March's video? Sweet Melissa from Melissa's Kre8tions made them for me! They are so darn happy, I could eat them- if you really like them, I believe they are knit from her "Crayon" handspun that is listed in her shop now. She sent some samples in for March in the same colorway. Melissa was so sweet, in fact, she sent in a pair of fingerless gloves for you, our lucky commenter! Just visit Melissa's wonderful shop, find something you like, and post about it below here! These gloves are made with an open lace stitch so they are the perfect spring-time accessory for those of you who are also wondering where spring went. Remember, I will count your twittering, plurks, facebook status, blogposts and forum posts as second entries to win! Leave a way for me to contact you, in case you're the lucky winner.
Melissa, I love your yarn and your shop, and your outlook on life! Thanks so much for being a Phat Fiber contributor!

Love the Strawberries and Cream. I live in a house of blue, with two boys and a husband, so anything pink tickles my fancy. Thanks for the giveaway!

Mara said...

The sparrow business card wallet is awesome. Love it!

k8 said...

I'm totally torn between the crayon yarn and the strawberries and cream! They both look like color combos someone in my house (not just me) would steal before I even finished knitting them!

It is 16 degrees right here...I could use some cute hand warmers that hint at spring! Love the Lachlan Handspun Wool in her shop, beautiful.

PenelopeRose said...

The Strawberries and Cream 320 Yards Handspun Corriedale is breath taking. I can see so many different projects knit out of it. Great shop!

Crys said...

Ooooh - love the Strawberries and Cream yarn (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18703068) That would make a LOVELY extra long scarf. I have a thing for scarves that never end.

I get looks for knitting in the summer as well. I sell scarves like they are going out of style at fall craft shows, so I have to knit in the summer. :)

Nightphoenix said...

Something about the warmth of Passion (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=18702816) just makes me want to snuggle right up and knit it.
