Christmas Decoration Competition

November 26 2010 – thisisknit

It's Christmas Decoration time chez TIK and that means you have a chance to win this incredible selection of goodies! Christmas Basket Prize "How?" I hear you ask...* Well, every year we add a few more of our own hand made decorations to the shop but this time around we'd love to get everyone involved! So, if you have odds and ends of yarns from finished projects, you can turn them into a small knitted or crocheted ornament, and into the chance to win: 6 balls of Luxury Aran Tweed in great Christmassy shades 1 Bottle of Ravelry Scented SOAK (an apple-y smell) 1 Pair of Chocolate Bunni Crafts Knitting Needles (these ones have little Christmas Trees on top!) A set of sweet angelic Ceramic Buttons A copy of Crocheted Gifts from Interweave Press. For every little decoration we receive you will be entered into the draw for this prize and you can drop in as many decorations as you like. The deadline for entries will be Friday 17th of December and we'll announce the winner on the morning of Saturday 18th December. I've been trawling through websites for some suggested patterns and, while there are a few more advanced ones, a lot of them can be worked up quickly in an evening. This is a fun competition and mini fairisle socks are only called for if you really will enjoy knitting them. In my next post I'll give links to some of the great patterns I have found but feel free to invent your own! We can't wait to see what you all come up with. :D Happy Crafting One and All! *(I really must see someone about those voices!)

    Hi Sarah – so sorry you couldn’t make it in to the shop with your entry. I’d say we’ll run the same competition next year (with a bit more notice) so hang on to that snowman!

    Caroline D won the prize and it was posted out to her just before Christmas. Her name was drawn from a hat of all the entries and she had made some cute red stars with gold beads sewn on for sparkle! :D

    We loved all the entries!
