Garilynn and Giveaway!


Perhaps while you'll need an oven mitt to take the kettle off of the stove when you're done boiling your tea...

Have you visited Garilynn yet? Gari is a most clever designer, always coming up with new ideas and implementing them! She came up with the Knit Stitch Graph Paper- now you don't have to try and visualize what those squares will look like knitted up! She also invented the skein snake- a unique and tidy way to wash your yarn! Her patterns have a wonderful simplicity about them. I really love both Bernard and the Elementary hat- how classic!

We're giving away this knitted oven mitt and pattern today! Just visit Garilynn and find something you love. Write about it in the comments section below and we'll draw for a winner later in the week. Make sure you use facebook and twitter so we can spread the word about Garilynn!

Gari's deerstalker is awesome! I can almost hear the cry, "The game is afoot!"

Deerstalker is indeed really cool - not sure if I could pull it off though. I also really like the hyacinth bucket hat.

Hyacinth bucket hat is adorable; I can see this in sooo many different fibers adn yarns. And on top of my daughter's head!

The skein snake is really a neat idea.

I like the Several Themes Of Hearts; nothing like getting to make cute and functional things like that!

I love the oven mitt. I think the skein snake will be very useful. I also have broomstick skirts, I could use for it.

It is hard to choose just one item, they are all great! My favorites are the Heart Pocket and Bernard.

Annette said...

Oh, I love the bucket hat pattern. =)

heather said...

The patterns are so cute and useable. I have to say I love the heart nursing pads wish I had those when I was nursing.

Susan said...

Whoa. That skein snake is so clever! And hey, I like those stitch markers! What an elegant way not to get topologically stuck!

The Skein Snake is genius!! Gari is cyber-cool and a wonderful person in real life too! I love it when she comes in the shop with her latest knit-ventions!

Andrea said...

I know a lot of other people have said it, but my favorite has got to be the skein snake! Especially since I've been gifted stinky yarn before that needed a good washing.

I love the Hyacinth bucket hat!! (And the character it's named for as well...) I could also really use some of that graph paper, it's brilliant.
