Contests and Cast Ons

Posted on Posted in projects

We are loving the feedback we’re receiving on the Craftsy classes. I think everyone is enjoying the fact that they can take a class from Anne in the comfort of their living room. And they can watch the classes over and over!

Thank you to everyone that entered the contest for a FREE Button Bands and Buttonholes. I have a winner! Drumroll please…

Cheryl A, enjoy your free class and finishing your garments with the help of virtual Anne!

Speaking of contests, I’m having a lot of fun with the Countdown to Father’s Day KAL on ravelry.

Each day I post a knitting pattern ideal for dad that can be knit in time for his special holiday. There’s a grand prize given to someone that posts pictures of their finished object by Father’s Day. Right now, I’m awarding a $5 knitspot gift certificate to one lucky person that posts a pic of themself with dad in the thread, or their husband and child, or a daddy with his dog…by Sunday (may 26 midnight EST). I kicked it off by posting a pic of me with my dad

and I’m loving all the cherished photos rolling in. You can see them all here and there’s still time to enter the contest! You can also check the daily countdown of knitting pattern ideas on facebook and twitter.

I am turning in for the night. I just got back from a mani/pedi and I need to get my beauty sleep. Why? Because I have a lot of things to do over the next couple days. My brother is getting married Saturday!! And I’m in the wedding!! I am busting at the seams with excitement. He has found the perfect girl and I am so happy to be a part of their special day.

There will be a lot of running around the next couple days and also down time in between things. I have cast on a Sculling in Yarn Hollow to keep my hands busy as I wait in the queue for hair and makeup.

Have a great weekend everyone!
