Birthday GIVEAWAY

GUESS WHO?
It's my lovely sister Kasey. And it's her birthday today!

I love my sister so much. She is wonderful. I can be myself around her and no matter what I say or do, she still likes me.

These are what I'm giving to her. I found the pattern for knitting them here. She calls hers TOAST and says, " Worn with a sweater with 3/4 sleeves, or poking out of a sleeve of a jacket." I altered the pattern a little bit. And so I'm naming mine CINNAMON TOAST.

Cinnamon Toast

Yarn: Paton's Kroy, Summer Moss Jaquard
75% washable wool, 25% nylon
Needles: 3

Cast on 56 stitches. Divide onto 3 needles (needle 1, 24 stitches; needle 2 ,16 stitches; needle 3, 16 stitches). Join for working in the round. Work in (Knit 4, Purl 4) ribbing for 11 inches. Bind off. Weave in both ends. And there you are!

And so in honor of my sister I'm going to give away a pair!

(The pair I'll give away is slightly different. The yarn is Fern Rose Jacquard, and I'll make them using the TOAST pattern, so they'll look like this.)

It's going to work like last time... Leave a comment on this post and you're entered.

Here's an added twist: if you e-mail a birthday message to my sister TODAY ONLY (JANUARY 16) you'll get an extra entry!


The drawing will close Sunday at 5:30pm MST


The drawing is now closed. This is how the giveaway pair turned out. They're comfy, cozy to wear. I'll announce the winner in just a minute.


Congratulations to AUTUMNTIME!

E-mail me your address, and I'll bring these babies right on over! For some added fun, you should take a picture of yourself wearing TOAST and post it on your blog for all of us to see!
