Win It :: Valentine's Day Giveaway!!

PS I love you

Who's in the mood for a little impromptu giveaway??  I know I am!!

I'm not really a Valentine's Day type of person, but I'm the kind that will hang out in the seasonal area of the store waiting for that moment when all the holiday chocolate goes on sale.  Heh heh heh...and yeah, I'm not ashamed to admit that!  Anyhoo, both the Mister and I don't celebrate Valentine's Day either as we're already pretty cheesy on a daily basis.  We don't expect gifts from each other (yet I would NEVER turn down a gift of yarn...hint, hint Mister!!), nor do we expect the other to make a fancy meal (unless lobster or the like is on sale, then we just become opportunists.  I mean, come on, cheap lobster?  Who turns that down?).  Valentine's Day is just another day for us.  Except that it's unusually full of red and pink colour everywhere.  But that's not a bad thing.  Well...not to me.  But then again, I'm all about the pink!

Ok, I'm totally digressing here.  

So anyways, I know there's a lot of other people who don't celebrate Valentine's Day either.  Some people are bitter, some just don't care, some think it's too Hallmark-y, and some just aren't into the PDA thing.  Then there are those who absolutely adore Valentine's and they totally go all out.  Regardless of what camp you belong in I thought, "who doesn't like a giveaway?".  While rooting around the fabric stash the other day I came across some very cute and very topical fabric for the "holiday" and decided to whip up a project bag.  As I was sewing up the last seam yesterday afternoon I decided, hey, why not give this bad boy away?  So I am.

The print might not be your cup of tea but hey, who would turn down a free project bag?  And with so many knitters taking up sock knitting, who doesn't need a special bag for their current sock WIP?  Even if you're not a knitter, I'm sure there's a knitter in your life who would appreciate a fun project bag.  Ok, enough of trying to sell you on the idea of a Valentine themed box bag.  Let's get down to the giveaway, shall we?

  5. Cute! I probably read too many knitting/craft blogs, but I love the inspiration. There are several that I use to get a good idea of fit and color on projects, because I like to do my research. Oh, and the pretty colors! Love the eye candy!

  20. Ok, I'm trying this once more - the comment box has been eating my comments :(

    I read knitting blogs to get inspired - it's way too easy to get stuck in your comfort zone, and seeing what other knitters are working on (and the tools, techniques and yarns they're using!) really gets me thinking outside the box.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ooh, this is gorgeous! I only recently discovered your blog, but I was so happy to find another great knitting blog, especially from someone who is "local" for me (ie, in BC). I love reading knitting blogs because I get ideas about what to knit and/or what yarns to try out. I also get inspired/motivated to knit myself - and try new patterns that might otherwise have intimidated me.

  22. I love reading knit blogs for new yarns, or patterns, or techniques, or travel knitting, or.... just everything knit related! Plus, such pretty pictures of fiber. Ravelry: snowflower596

  24. I read knitting blogs because they connect me with my people. My real-life friends don't knit and have no interest in it, so I need internet friends to chat about yarn with!

    They also tip me off on other good ideas, projects, new to me knitting patterns, etc.
    Same with instagram, I follow tons of knitters/paper crafters/letterpress printers just because its nice to see a little inspiration through the day.

  35. That is just about the cutest thing ever! I love it! Like others, I read knitting blogs for inspiration: patterns I haven't seen, or patterns I have seen shown in a new light, or color combinations I wouldn't have thought of, or yarns I hadn't heard about...

  38. I love reading knitting and crafting blogs because they keep the joy alive in my heart - I go in waves with knitting and reading, I rarely carry on both in the same time span, so when I'm in Reading Mode (as I have been lately) reading blogs like yours makes me excited for my return to fibre awesomeness! vawinning on Ravelry :)

  41. Yay!! Happy Valentine's Day to you!

    I enjoy craft / knitting blogs because they help to inspire me to produce better crafty work myself. I'm very prone to accepting work that is "good enough" from myself, but then I see others only accepting the best work from themselves and it makes me pick up my game too.

  42. I love to knit and I like seeing what others are thinking when it comes to knitting and what is going on.

  71. I love reading crafty blogs due to the visual stimulation of course! Having a desk job and reading black and white emails all day long are hard on my eyes (and soul). Stopping by crafting sites to see colorful yarn, fabrics, and materials are so refreshing. It also gives me inspiration for new projects and gives me confidence to try my hand at something new. That's how I got into candle making!
