Garilynn Faerie Slouch Hat Kit Giveaway!


Many of you received Garilynn's fabulous Faerie Slouch hat pattern in June's box. She related a funny anecdote to us on the pattern about how she came to name this hat. I'm just going to say that her husband is a funny guy! Reminds me of another funny guy I know... :)

I really love how this hat uses sock yarn- even more excuse to buy and hoard it after you've knit dozens of socks ;) And it's so light and airy- makes a perfect summer hat!

We're giving away this lilac/lavender kit away on the blog today- please visit Garilynn, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week so please take a moment to retweet/facebook/ravelate about Garilynn. You'll be helping us spread the good word, and getting an extra entry for your efforts!

I love the Bernard in Garter pattern! Also the Skein Snake seems very handy!!

Jan said...

The Skein Snake is a really great idea. I scrounge for yarn at 2nd Hand Stores, Estate & Garage Sales and so this would be extremely useful, making the job so much easier for the hanks. I'd not really thought about washing new yarn, but that's a great idea as well. I've added this, and the stitch markers, to My Favorites. The Slouch Hat is also a great idea. I"m always looking for ways to use up my sock yarn stash. Garilynn, thanks for sharing your talents

LOVE the knitters graph paper and the slouch hat. My daughter wears those hats all winter and I make them regularly using sock yarn :)

Nuime said...

I think the Skein Snake is just a wonderful idea. I have a skein in mind that I know would have been tucked away in that and washed as soon as I got it (it liked to stick to itself) and it probably would have saved me some headaches!

I love the Skein Snake. I like to upcycle yarn and wash it first...I have been handwashing and then laying it around to dry and this would have been so much more handier
