knitcircus

Thursday, June 02, 2011

Hello You.
Hello June. I am so happy to see you!
The summer issue of knitcircus has been out for nearly a month. Have you flipped through the pages? (Just love doing that.) Read the articles? (Yarn stylist was great. And, I really enjoyed the interviews with Kieren Foley, Michael Wade and Sharon of Three Irish Girls.) Checked out the patterns? (I love Mughal, Isis, the socks, the spiral star baby blanket and that hooded gansey vest!)
Perhaps made some cookies? (They are SO good. I wasn't sure if the kids would like them or if I would be winding up eating all the dough. But, hey, they didn't even notice the coconut.)


The creative peeps over at Knitcircus would like to give away a one year subscription and three downloads of the summer pattern collection to my readers. So, four prizes to four of my readers. How awesome is that!
If interested, leave a comment here by Saturday, June 4th, at 5p.m. I'll have the random generator choose the 4 names.
Enjoy your day!
