A Hat a Day Giveaway

You might or not have noticed that I’ve been bit by the knitting bug lately. That metallic rhythm that you have heard in the back of your mind at night has probably been the sound of my needles travelling around the world (travelling sound, not needles). My arms have finally said enough already after finishing all those socks and mittens and no less than 19 hats; yup 19 hats (probably more an obsession than a bug I guess).

The good thing about this gigantic amount of hats and only one non-gigantic head to put them on is that I get to share them with others, including you guys.

These 6 hand knitted hats made from chunky lovely (not machine washable) wool yarn are up for grabs. The style is very similar to the hat from Giveaway Day (you give it a little pat in the back of your neck so it droops a little back there; would that be beanie hat??), and the rib knitting makes them fit an adult or teen.
These colours are pretty accurate: off white, hot pink, warm yellow and off white w/yellow stripe. Now, you get to choose up to 3 hats, one for yourself and two for your friends and family, just tell me which hats you’d want and I’ll see what I can do. I will draw 2 winners on January 7th (when we have all managed to fight our way off the couch and back to our computers).

To enter
1) Leave a comment to this post. Make sure your blogger profile includes your email address or leave one here so I can get hold of you if you are the lucky winner

2) If you are one of my wonderful followers, or become one, leave a comment telling me so and you’ll get another chance in the drawing.


Good luck to you all; I’m off to building my non allergenic spider free Christmas tree for grandson and I to decorate tomorrow morning. No matter if it takes 3 minutes or 2 hours it will be anything but boring...

    Has anyone else noticed that sometimes the word verification actually makes sense and sort of matches what was said on the blog?
