The twelve days of Christmas and the 2016 birthday game

Hi there, how are you doing today? I hope you are doing great. Before I dive into today’s subjects I just wanted to remind you of my Yarn Valet review and the giveaway. You can read about it here and to participate just leave a comment below the blog post. I will draw the winner tomorrow Thursday 17th of December.

And then there is the 2016 Birthday game. I blogged about this a while ago and some of you decided to join in the fun so I sent out emails with questionnaires to help us get to know each other better and so on. I have only received replies from a few of the participants so I would like to ask that if you are one of those that expressed interest in participating, that you check your email to see if you got my email and questionnaire and that you fill it out and send to me as soon as you can. If for some reason you did not get my email, please let me know by sending me an email to: knittinginfrance@gmail.com so I can send you the missing questionnaire.

I’d like to be able to put the finishing touches on the preparations for the game before the Holidays.

Now, THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS. You may have seen this hashtag on social media and I believe at least 2 great companies are spoiling us in the last few days up to Christmas and just in case you are not aware of that, I thought I’d share the info with you here.

First there is Kettle Yarn Co – Linda of Kettle Yarn Co in the UK is offering one promotional item each day leading up to Christmas. She announces her offer of the day on Instagram so you should follow her there to get some of her gorgeous hand dyed yarns, project bags or patterns at a bargain price.

And then there is Tin Can Knits – I’m a fan of Tin Can Knits designs and I own a number of their patterns and at least 2 books. I just heard that they are doing a “12 days of Christmas” giveaway via their blog and Ravelry. Every day the giveaway a free accessory pattern! How’s that for great news? So how does this work? Well you just go to their blog here and every day there will be a new pattern. On the blog you will see pictures and be able to read about the pattern. If you then click on the “buy now” button, you will be taken to Ravelry where the pattern is still marked full prize but when you go to check out the number magically becomes 0! And you just download your new pattern! I think this is a great idea of course and I hope that if you were not aware of this, then you’ll be able to go check out their blog and join the fun and get some gorgeous patterns for free:)

That’s all for today. Take care and I’ll be back tomorrow to announce the winner of the Yarn Valet give-a-way (so don’t forget to participate).
