It’s time for a GIVEAWAY

Hi there, yes you read right, it’s time for a giveaway. I’m celebrating a number of things this week:

the reopening of my shop, the publication of the first ever sock pattern designed specifically for my yarns and the fact that my blog now has over 100 subscribers! Yay!!!

So I’m doing a giveaway where there will be no losers – yes a giveaway where everyone will get something:) So there will be 2 big winners that will each receive a skein of my hand dyed yarn in the Strawberry Frappuccino colorway in the SPARKLES base and the Strawberries and Cream Frappé Sock pattern by JavaPul (I will need your Revelry username to gift you the pattern via Revelry and your full postal address for sending the yarn).

If you are not one of the lucky big winners you will receive a special discount code valid for 10% off a future order in my shop

Doesn’t that sound awesome? I sure hope so.

How can you participate? Well, it’s super easy. Just leave me a comment below and tell me why you would like to win and also include your Revelry user name. You have until the 14th of October to participate and leave a comment and on the 14th I will choose the two big winners using a random number generator. The winners will be announced sometime during the 14th of October and I will then contact the big winners directly to get all the necessary info for the delivery of their price. And before the 17th of October I will send each of the other participants their discount code via a Revelry message (hence my request to include your Revelry user name in your comment). Should you not be a member of Revelry (you should join NOW) you can send me an email once the winners have been announced at knittinginfrance@gmail.com and I’ll send you the discount code by email.

That’s all so leave me a comment and you will win a great price weather you  are the big winner or not.

That’s all for today, take care and enjoy your crafting

Do you want to play a little game?

Hi there, today June 17th is Iceland’s National Day and as such should be celebrated! I for instance am not working today (YEAH). And I think I may need to do some serious knitting in front of something fun on Netflix with a bowl of popcorn or something along those lines:)

Now, I thought we could do something fun and do a second giveaway. The first giveaway I did was in relation to my discovery of 2 in 1 sock knitting and the winner got 2 yarn cakes of hand dyed sparkle yarn to try out the technique herself. This time around I’m going to go for something else. The gift and object of your desires is……..

IMG_3127 The sock ruler! The latest craze in sock knitting and something you as a sock knitter must have! This accessory is basically a plastic ruler partly shaped like a sock and it has measurements both in inches and centimeters so no matter what pattern you’re doing, it will work perfectly. What is so great about this is that it makes measuring so much easier. Your sock lies flat and whether you are doing toe up or top down this will make life so much easier not to mention more fun:)

So I have 2 of those to giveaway – sponsored by myself! And now how to participate?

To participate and be eligible to win one of the two sock rulers you have to share a picture of the sock ruler from my shop. This is a link you can use 

Share the picture and link on your social media along with info on what it is and where to buy it (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, blog, Tumblr etc) and then leave me a comment below this post with a link to your share. Feel free to share on multiple venues and leave me a comment with a link to each share – that way you will have more chances of winning:) If sharing on Twitter and Instagram you can use the #KIFgiveaway.

I will chose the winners using a random number generator. Each comment will have a number: 1st comment will be nr 1, 2nd comment will be nr 2 and so forth. Two numbers will be drawn and the winners will receive this fabulous knitting accessory for sock knitting – which by the way can also be used for knitting mittens I think.

You have until Friday June 19th midnight my part of the world (Paris, France) to join – share and comment. The winners will be announced on Saturday June 20th and the Sock Rulers will subsequently be mailed out on Monday June 22nd.

I think this can be quite fun and while it will (hopefully) bring my little shop some much needed exposure, it should also be fun for you and very easy to join in.

I will be doing giveaways from time to time and I already have the third giveaway scheduled for beginning of July and that one is being sponsored by this great shop I recently discovered but haven’t told you about just yet. You’ll learn all about that, the shop, the owner and the giveaway later this month.

That’s all for now so join in, share all you can and best of luck to you all!
