Up for grabs in this raffle is this shawlette that was hand knit out of malabrigo lace weight yarn. It was one that I knit while testing my Lil' Bit Shawlette pattern. The pattern will be available for sale through Ravelry for $2.00 later this month. If there are more than 100 entries I will be giving away 5 free copies of the pattern as well.
Only one entry per person please. Enter by filling out the following form. It's not much of a form but its a good way to track how many people enter and in what order. I won't email you anything unless you win and your email address won't be saved anywhere and will be removed once the raffle is done. If you have any questions at all please contact me!
So I made a real list for my gifts. An official one. Unfortunately it made me realize that I don’t have very many gifts done. I had three done but my dad needed another hat and I decided to not make him wait two months for it. Now I have two gifts done out of 12 and luckily 4 gifts are for kids. I’m really trying to focus on gift knitting so I put my socks on hold and I finished a shawl I was working on for me. This is the Lonely Tree Shawl made out of reclaimed yarn.
I used my hand spun alpaca to start this lined beanie. The brown gradient is the hand spun and the blue is reclaimed alpaca yarn. I’m a little more than half way done and I think I’ll be able to finish it this week.
I felted these slippers and they ended up a little furry. They are a little too fuzzy right now and one of them felted more than the other but it was good practice for the ones I’m making as gifts.
I started these new slippers last night and I might be able to finish the knitting today. I’m making these women’s size medium
My plan for this week is to finish the felted slippers and the alpaca hat. I also want to make one of the kid’s gifts but I keep changing my mind on what to make them.
In other news, my pattern is almost done being tested and I took some new pictures of my completed shawlettes. Thursday I’ll be starting the raffle for this blue shawlette.
The testers are almost done testing the Lil’ Bit Shawlette pattern. This pattern has a lil’ bit of lace and a lil’ bit of ruffle, hence the name. I have made two of these and I will be raffling a shawlette made out of Malabrigo lace weight yarn. It was hand knit by me with lots of love. On November 1st I will post a survey in my blog. Not like a serious survey but an easy way for me to track who wants to enter in the raffle. Only one entry per person and the raffle will close on November 30th. I’ll be covering the shipping costs and I’m open to sending it internationally so everyone has a chance! If I get more than 100 entries I will raffle off 5 copies of the pattern as well so invite your friends to enter! The package will arrive before Christmas so if you would like to give it as a gift for the holidays, you should have plenty of time. If you have any questions you can leave a comment here or email me at AudreyLeeYarns@yahoo.com
I have officially begun testing my shawl pattern! I posted it in the free pattern testers group in ravelry so if you would like to join the test just hop on over to the group (link to get there). The deadline for testing is November 15th. I’m going to be starting a raffle for the finished shawlette on November 1st and picking a winner on November 30th! I’m deciding a method for conducting my raffle but it will most likely be done here on my blog. I will announce to rules for the raffle by October 20th. Depending on how many entries there are I will also be giving away free copies of the pattern.
I work, take care of my babies, read, and maybe sometimes knit.
