Lacy Scarf Giveaway

lacy scarf 1
During the month of November I am running my promotional giveaway. My Lacy Ladies Circular Scarf has been, by far, the most viewed, most liked, and most commented on product on my blog. And so it was clear that this had to be my giveaway item.

In a stunning lively aqua blue, the yarn is a blend of wool, cashmere and silk protein, giving it a luxurious feel. I must, once again, give credit to Lindsi for her great pattern, which I have used over and over again with a few adjustments from time to time. For this particular scarf I started with 211ch and I used a 5mm hook.

Beanie And Boots Giveaway

My friend, Sharon hosts an exciting online antenatal course in South Africa called Just Engage. She also regularly posts fun, relevant, real and helpful stories on her blog relating to pregnancy and parenting. You can follow her on facebook too.

She is currently running a giveaway featuring this beanie and boots set, and has written a lovely article about Megs J Shep.

Because these were made for a giveaway they had to be suitable for either a boy or a girl. I had been wanting to make something up using this combination of silver grey and stone, and this seemed the perfect opportunity. The pattern I used for the boots is from Repeat Crafter Me and is easy to follow. I found it a fun a versatile pattern. I then had to find a pattern for a beanie that matched….not so easy. I ended up making this one up. It is predominantly double (single if you are American) crochet, except for the brim which is alternate double and half-treble rows to match the cuff on the boots.

It is great to be part of this giveaway. Thanks to Sharon and Just Engage for featuring me. I hope these boots and beanie will be well worn by a precious little person.
