May Giveaway Day! or, who doesn’t love free stuff?

I’m happy to be participating in my first May Giveaway Day with Sew Mama Sew! 

I’m actually offering TWO giveaways (drum roll, please).

Giveaway 1: Beginner Knitting Kit (2 gently used DVDs, a pair of knitting needles, and a skein of yarn)

Through a series of bizarre happenings, I came into possession of two gently used beginner knitter DVDs, I Can’t Believe I’m Knitting! in Motion and I Can’t Believe I’m Knitting Cables, Bobbles, & Lace in Motion.  Both feature Melissa Leapman.  I am eager to find these a home with a beginner somewhere so yes, I will ship internationally.  (I think the DVDs are probably encoded for Region 1 though.)  To add to the kit, I’m including a pair of my Underground Crafter bamboo knitting needles (U.S. size 9) and a skein of Bernat Lana.  Lana is discontinued but it is a nice 100% wool yarn. I chose a light color for ease of viewing your stitches.

Don’t let my terrible photography scare you away from a nice giveaway!

Giveaway 2: Free in-person crochet or knitting lesson (in New York City only)

My second giveaway is intangible so it cannot be photographed.  I will give the winner a one hour lesson in crochet or knitting in New York City.  Unfortunately, since I do not have a car, we are limited to meeting somewhere accessible by public transportation (sorry Staten Island!).  I will also include an Underground Crafter crochet hook or pair of knitting needles when we meet.  Please note that I work full-time so we would have to meet up in the evening or on a weekend.

My giveaways are my way of “paying it forward”* by helping someone else learn to knit or crochet, or to improve their skills.  I love yarn crafts and hope you will too!

You can enter either giveaway by leaving a comment with the following info:

  • Tell me which giveaway you are interested in winning.
  • Give me your email address or a link back to your website so I can track you down if you win :).
  • Write a short note about why you’d like to win the giveaway you’ve selected.  If you are entering Giveaway 2, please let me know whether you’d be interested in a crochet or knitting lesson and the general topic (e.g., beginner, granny squares, cables, pattern reading, etc.).

You can enter on behalf of someone else (as a gift) as long as you can provide me with their contact information once you win.  Sign up by 11:59 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, 5/25 and I will choose one winner at random for each giveaway by May 27.  I will post about both winners here on the blog and also will email each winner.  Good luck and thanks for stopping by!
