Whirl Into Winter Giveaway is Finally Here!

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered! The winner, cdziuba of Ceeceeblogger, was announced HERE. Congratulations!




Whirl into Winter Quilt Blog Giveaway


The Whirl Into Winter Giveaway has finally arrived! Happy 2009 to all of you and thank you for visiting Hooked On Needles, even if it is just to check out my giveaway prize. Of course I can't let you go quite so quickly now that you are here, so I'm going to ask you to do a little simple sleuthing in order to get your name in my drawing.

But first, would you like to know what you are playing for? Take a look...


Whirl Into Winter Giveaway BlanketIn the Winter spirit of this giveaway, I have made a very generously sized (40 by 50 inches not including the fringe), double thickness, fleece blanket using the coziest, thickest fleece I could find in a very winter-looking print -- light blue background with little yellow stars and a solid yellow backing. Just imagine an evening in front of the fireplace, curled up underneath this blanket, with a cup of something hot and a really good book...or craft magazine! COZY!


Whirl Into Winter GiveawayOf course, along with the blanket will be a few other Winter-themed items for the winner. A box of assorted Winter cards and envelopes, a clear snowflake ornament that would look nice hung in a window, some iron-on sparkly snowflakes for your favorite cozy sweatshirt, some snowflake gift tags, a Mary Engelbreit penguin magnet that says "Let It Snow", a spool of red ribbon with white snowflakes, a snowflake cookie cutter, and two packages of that Something Hot to cuddle with under that fleece blanket while enjoying the fire -- New England Mulling Spices for some hot mulled cider, and a Hot Buttered Rum mix which can be used with or without alcohol. Now if all that doesn't say WINTER, I just don't know what does! Except for maybe a few other things that are not in the picture, but will also be included in the winner's package!

So here's the part I know you are really interested in...what YOU have to do in order to get in the running for this prize. I'll make it as simple as possible.

  • Look through my website for 3 items I have made that you might consider COZY. (I'll give you a hint to make it easier to get started...on my sidebar, there is a section called Hooked On Needles Links where you will find links to lists of all my previous posts using certain techniques. Pick one or two techniques that you think would be used to make cozy things and check them out.)

  • Write a comment at the end of this giveaway post telling me what 3 COZY items you found and which one of those items you like the best.

  • Please include your email address if you comment anonymously, if you don't have a blog, or if your return address is set to no-reply. If you are not sure, just go ahead and include your email address in your comment so I can reply to you. If I cannot send you an email, your entry will not qualify for the drawing.

  • International entries are welcome with the understanding that the package will be shipped by the least expensive method.

On January 15th, I will announce the winner of my giveaway here at Hooked On Needles. Make sure to click on that friendly snowflake at the top of this post or on my sidebar to see the list of all the other generous crafters who are also offering fabulous Winter giveaways. But hurry because they all end by January 15th!

Happy Stitching!

  • Hmm ... I'm d first to comment. I like being first. Ok! I found a special Olympic Scarf #3 (blue and yellow wave pattern), a thick cozy baby blanket which you made for one of your children (2 double crochet/1 single crochet shell pattern) and the manly bold color afghan for your son. All look cozy to me. If I have to pick, I'll choose the thick baby blanket - the soft pastel color complements the comfy it offers - I'll snug under the blanket with the baby ...zzzzz

    By Blogger lili11, At January 1, 2009 at 7:46 AM  

  • Wait! I was first to comment, but couldn't do the identity thing at the bottom. What is that anyway?!

    Ok. Here's what I see on your website that could be very cozy for me! Your knitted basketweave stitch, which I might try some day when finish my first knitted project. I found your finished mystery quilt, which would look great on my wall in my family room and it would "cozy" up the room very nicely. I found your version of Martha's self tying knitted scarf. Looks cute and "cozy".

    Now, I'm off to look for a way to pick up a stitch or two in my scarf. If I don't I'm afraid I'll end up with a point. I know you have a video on here somewhere, so I'm going to look it up.

    Thanks,

    Sarah

  • 1) The bold colored afghan for your son...it looks really cozy.

    2) Forest Greens Baby Blanket - all baby blankets are cozy.

    3) but my favorite has to be Knitted neck scarf - that you modified from Martha's...

    Happy New Year...

  • The 3 things I thought are cozy:

    The scrap quilt for your daughter.
    The mitten stockings.
    The Oddball blanket/jersey devil blanket.

    Love them all!

    By Blogger Jackie, At January 1, 2009 at 1:11 PM  

  • I love the tote bags, mystery quilts and your angel swap gift (what a cute little angel).

    The fleece blanket would be the coziest has it get pretty cold here in the winter.

    By Blogger Kim, At January 1, 2009 at 1:24 PM  

  • I love the fleece blanket for your give away. I would love to snuggle under that. The Dr. Seuss scarf was adorable. But I would be partial to it because I am a teacher. I also looooovvvvvveeee the step dancing dresses. The embrodery is fabulous.

  • Jack of all trades you are. Enjoyed going through your blog. I found A Christmas Tree Skit that you made (sad occasion for you with your sister moving) a Red Odd Ball Baby Blanket and Green Odd Ball Baby Blanket. I wish I could learn how to crochet/knit. I've tried! All look cozy to me, of all I'd pick any of the baby blankets. Rae Ann

    By Blogger R.H., At January 1, 2009 at 2:13 PM  

  • My most favorite was the mittens...that was sooo cute how you hung them and then put things in them...then the scarves...and for the Special Olympics..that was wonderful. Knitted basket weave. I am sure any of these projects while doing them will keep you nice and cozy.

    Love your giveaway

    By Blogger Barb, At January 1, 2009 at 2:52 PM  

  • I would say the green baby blanket you kinitted for charity, tat afgan you knitted, and the knitted neck scarf. most cozy would prob. be the baby blanket though.

    By Blogger Beth, At January 1, 2009 at 2:56 PM  

  • Hi Mary Grace,
    I am feeling a bit better so thought I'd check out a few blogs. I love your Giveaway!! So now I'll tell you the cozy things I found so you'll add my name to the drawing. :-) I love baby blankets and cannot crochet or knit so really appreciate those that do. I could just see a slightly larger version of these three items that would make a nice lap quilt that would keep me cozy and warm.......The first one was the Jersey Devil Blanket/Oddball Baby Blanket in red and then I liked the Ripple Stitch baby blanket in pastels adn the the Diagonal Knit Basketweave baby blanket. My favorite....the Ripple Stitch in pastels. I love pastel colors as they are calming to me. Some day maybe I will pick up needles and yarn and give it a try but right now my fingers are in too many pies already!!! :-)

    By Blogger Sandi, At January 1, 2009 at 3:33 PM

  • What fun to look through all your wonderful, cozy links.

    I love the Dr. Suess scarf, it reminds me of the knitting spool I had as a child.

    The woven stitch aphgan is very snuggly and cozy.


    But my favorite for coziness has to be the scrap quilt you made for your daughter. Since I'm a quilter and partial to scrap quilts I can just feel the warmt and love you put in that quilt.

    Great giveaway! Mine starts on Friday so please stop by.

    By Blogger Laura Ingalls Gunn, At January 1, 2009 at 5:16 PM

    1. The Dr. Suess scarf. That one is just fun and would keep anyone cozy warm in the winter

    2. The stuffed toys to keep kids of all ages cozy in their beds.

  • MY! What a helpful website you have, my dear! I'd be cozy in the Bubblicios Sweater and a Special Olympics Scarf #3, but the coziest: is the Striped Baby Blanket. Soft baby colors, snug single crochet and add one baby to cozy up with. myzbarb(at)yahoo(dot)com

    By Blogger Nanabarb, At January 1, 2009 at 6:49 PM

  • It was so much fun going through your blog. Wow you do a lot of things. I just love your appliqued, beaded. and embroidered wall hanging, what a treasure! And the tree skirt, Love it! The one I found most cozy was your special olympic scarf. Thanks for the drawing!

    By Blogger Ruby, At January 1, 2009 at 9:05 PM  

  • The striped afghan you made for your son sure looks cozy, I like the baby blanket you did before one of your children was born, and the green mitered border afghan looks really nice.
    My favorite has to be the baby blanket you did before the baby came. It looks so soft!

    By Blogger tisme, At January 1, 2009 at 11:13 PM

  • Happy New Year Mary Grace, the three cozy's I chose are 1. The Christmas Tree Skirt 2. Martha's Elf Tying Knitted Scarf 3. Knitted Stuffed Teddy Bear. My pick out of the three items would be the Knitted scarf.The reason I chose the scarf is I have had two throat operations and I wore a scarf for a long time to keep my neck warm.The scarf pattern you have is more appealing than the scarf I had. Hugs Lyn

    By Blogger bluebird-lyn, At January 2, 2009 at 12:40 AM  

  • What a generous giveaway! Love, your blog, will have to come back and browse when I have time. I found a blanket you crocheted before your children were born..love the shell pattern you used! Also found the pineapple doily which reminds me of my grandma's home and the coziness of it with all her doilies around. And I LOVE the giant mittens. What a great idea instead of stockings. Hmm...not sure which is my favorite though. Probably the mittens because they are so unique! Thanks for entering my name in your drawing. Karleen rtnkt@charter.net

    By Blogger Pinky, At January 2, 2009 at 12:51 AM  

  • I'm really enjoying going through your blog! I liked the story about the Christmas tree shirt. I'm sure you remember your cats with fondness every time you decorate your tree! The stiched Christmas cards are too cute. My cousin made some for Halloween once, a more simple design than your beauties, and I still have mine. The mitten stockings are just wonderful. All these things speak 'cozy' to me becaue they are homemade and obviously made with love. You have a great creative mind - keep up the good work!

    By Blogger Karen S, At January 2, 2009 at 1:52 AM  

  • I'm so happy I found your blog! I have had fun going through and reading! I'm loving it! ;-)

    Okay I think your Daughters Elizabeth's oddball quilt is just wonderful and cozy, your mystery quilt is great and love your little tag you added to the back thats cozy too, and your pillows you made from all your leftovers all that stuff would make for a real cozy time in front of our fireplace with a mocha!

    Thank you so very much Hun for the wonderful chance! Have a lovely New Year!

    ;-) Brooke

    P.S. I'm adding you to my blog roll! YAY!

  • I love your projects! My favourite is your granddaughter's Bubbalicious sweater! I also like your Bob Sled and buddy and your Christmas mittens (they're not really cozy, but cute!).

    Count me in on your drawing - such fun!

    By Blogger Linda T, At January 2, 2009 at 7:27 AM  

  • My favorite cozy is the Christmas tree skirt. My stocking, that my mother made when I was a child, was a felt kit stocking. Still to this day I love to look at the little beads and sequins. It is one of my favorite things to take out at Christmas. Your tree skirt brings all those memories back.

    I also love your fabric scraps quilts and the knit baby blankets. I have made similar projects and while mine are simple they are some of the ones that warm my heart the most.

    By Blogger littlepeepsmom, At January 2, 2009 at 8:06 AM  

  • I love your many charity projects like the Oddball baby blanket, scarves for special olympics. I think my favorite though is the crochet basketweave afghan, it looks so thick and cozy!

    By Blogger Jenna Z, At January 2, 2009 at 10:12 AM  

  • The special olympic scarf and the mitten stockings both bring on cozy feelings, but my favorite is the forest greens baby blanket:) thanks!

  • Well..I am hooked on all your baby blankets. What could be cozier than cuddling a baby wrapped in one of those?? I'd love to do that. Love them all....the forest green...the oddball.....the diagonal knitted basketweave........to name 3. You surely have a lot of nice ones you've made and I'm sure MANY babies have been cozy because of your work. Please enter me in your drawing. Your prizes are TERRIFIC and very generous...especially that nice fleece blanket!!! (Being a penguin nut, I would love the penguin magnet a lot, also.)

    By Blogger Pat, At January 2, 2009 at 11:20 AM  

  • My house is really cold so this throw would be wonderful! Other things that look cozy are the knitted neck scarf, the handpainted baby quilt, and the diagonal knit basketweave baby blanket.

    By Blogger Guilitta, At January 2, 2009 at 6:09 PM  

  • Hi there! I love the cute little knit swirl top baby hat. Knitting can make the coziest things especially if you use a cashmerino yarn! COZY! I loved the Embroidered Jornal Cover sample you made for the summer class you taught at your library. Embroidery can keep you busy while you are tucked in and cozy at home! And my absolute favorite thing you made was the scrap 9 patch quilt top for your daughter! I LOVE that! I would love to cozy & snuggle up under a quilt that my mom made for me...if only she sewed! LOL!

    By Blogger Ashley, At January 2, 2009 at 8:49 PM  

  • It's a cold winter night as I write this, and there were many cozy pieces I found. I love the Bubblicious sweater you made for your daughter, of course I'd prefer it to be bigger, so I could fit in it. =) Next would be the school colors knit hat. I could see my three boys being very cozy in those. And finally I like most of all the Wedding gift crocheted afghan. The pattern is very interesting and it looks very tightly stitched and very WARM. In my drafty house I need all the cozy blankets I can get! Which is also why I hope I win your Winter Giveaway! kattau91@comcast.net

    By Anonymous Jane, At January 2, 2009 at 9:40 PM  

  • I looked at your website and found many cozy items. The three I chose are the scrap quilt that you made for your daughter, the crocheted baby afghan, and the knitted basketweave blanket. If I had to pick a favorite, it would have to be the quilt. I love scrap quilts.
    Your giveaway is great! Thanks for entering me in the drawing.

    By Blogger Linda, At January 3, 2009 at 12:00 AM  

  • The coziest thing of all is the blanket you're giving away. {grins}

    But I clicked links for my 3 favorite categories and first up was Fabric Scrap quilt for your daughter! (I'm into scrap quilts & stash busting right now.)
    2nd was the knitted basket Weave Baby blanket. I did socks in basket weave and all that changing back & forth from K/P? I think my nephew would be waiting long past his 2nd birthday this May for auntie to finish!
    3rd. I love totes...and Angels. And embroidery. So your stitchery on the bag would keep things cozy inside :)
    Now off to check out your bag in progress some more & to bookmark!
    Happy New Year...

  • I love the cozy fleece blanket you're giving away and the theme items you've picked to go with it--clever woman!!
    But the three cozy items from your website that I liked best would have to be the shades of green baby blanket (loved that crochet edging), your version of Martha's scarf tie, and the giant mittens you knit in place of Christmas stockings! Bravo!! I guess my favorite would be the baby blanket with the different stitches you used and the way you blended the different shades of green--great job.

    By Blogger Jeri, At January 3, 2009 at 6:52 PM  

  • Your knitting is just lovely! I found the most generous scarf for the special olympics and the pom pom tutorial also--I loved the giant mitten stockings hung by the chimney with care and I loved you grandmothers Christmas ornaments. The felt bird was my favorite. My grandmother made some similar items. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy. Thanks for the tour and for adding me to the list for the drawing.

    By Blogger MOLLY, At January 3, 2009 at 7:20 PM  

  • Oh, I wish I was good with needles! Your work is beautiful. The "cozy" pieces I found are the Special Olympic Scarf #3 (love the wave pattern), the full size Afghan you made for your son (in bright colors trimmed in black), and the Dr. Seuss Knitted Scarf (I love the great texture). I'm not sure which is my favorite..maybe the Spcial Olympic Scarf #3.
    Also wanted to tell you (although I don't know if they are considered "cozy"), that I absolutely love the Christmas mittens. What a great idea...love it!

    By Blogger Jackie, At January 3, 2009 at 9:31 PM  

  • I found a handpainted baby quilt made for a teacher.
    The scrap fabric quilt made for your daughter.
    And my favorite a Paper Pieced Heart quilt that is beautiful.

    All cozy!

    I think those school hats are pretty cozy and festive for those freezing high schoolers, but the oddball afghan was cozy too. The best thing, though, would have to be all of your baby afghans. They look so snuggly, especially with a baby!

    Thanks MGM!

    As a Dr. Seuss fan, I adore your Dr. Seuss Knitted Scarf,... love the Huge Mittens (perfect to take pictures of, holding my little kittens!)...and the Self-tying Knitted Neck Scarf is so warm and sweet!

    I like the self-tying scarf best for our windy... chilly... or freezing days in Ohio!

    ok I know snowmen are not cozy, but this one looks real cozy all leeced up for winter. Yes, he is my favourite. I would love to learn how to make 'dolls', just like him...(what's the masculine version of doll?) Claire mckiernan@rogers.com

    By Blogger Briarose, At January 5, 2009 at 2:44 PM  

  • I liked the self tie knitted scarf...my motherinlaw use to make these. Also the crocheted striped baby blanket and your blue square quilt. The scarf would be my fave just because it brings good memories of her back. Have a good year.

  • I love your tree skirt with the sequeins--I made one for my 1st married Christmas---and then my new daucshund puppy chewed it up. I was at work so he didn't get caught! 2) I love the snowflake ornament you made--I like the dark color behind it--and in TX that's all the snowflakes I'll get (if I make some) and 3) I like the single crochet afagan that used scraps--it looked like something my grannie would have made. I liked the self -tie scarf also-but tried to not pick a knitted item, since I dont' knit. Angie

  • Three cozy things: a self tying scarf, a knitted baby blanket (although the one pictured you didn't make) and a fabric scrap quilt. You have a great site here. I'll be sure to do more browsing.
    On another unrelated note I noticed your Irish Dancing Dress embroidery.
    My twin sister and I used to Irish dance, and my mother did some embroidery on our dresses. I still dance some but just for fun now.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Three cozy things I've noticed are the colored afghan, the mitten stockings and the neck scarf! The neck scarf seems the coziest to me! Thanks for a great giveaway!

  • I think the coziest thing on your website is the background behind "Hooked On Needles" on your front page. I also love the big mittens and the adorable baby blankets. But then there's that tree skirt... I remember when you opened the package and we marveled at the sheer number of pieces. It sure turned out beautifully... in spite of the cats!

  • Wow you do just about everything. The three things that I found that would be nice to snuggle under were:
    1. The hand painted baby quilt for the teacher- how special is that!
    2. The paper pieced heart quilt - I love purple
    3. The pinwheel pattern afghan for your daughter - My dog just when to doggy heaven - maybe they are playing together

    and the bubblicious knit sweater is absolutely adorable
