Instant Download Patterns ~ and a giveaway!

Giveaway is now closed. Thanks to all who entered! The pattern of choice will be sent to each person who entered!

I just spent a few minutes updating my four original patterns that I sell on my Etsy shop to be instant downloads! So if you purchase one of them, you don't have to wait for me to receive payment notification and email the pdf file to you. As soon as you pay, you will get a link to the pattern and you can download it onto your computer and use it right away! Isn't that convenient?

I have a 4-fat-quarter cinch sack pattern which is the pattern I use for myself whenever I am in need of a new purse. It's so roomy and functional, and being a cinch sack, it makes for easy shopping or walking without worrying about what to do with a purse!

I also have a Christmas Tree Advent Calendar pattern which is a fun way to count down the days until Christmas. This pattern uses one of my favorite pre-cuts, charm packs! Or you could also use up your scrap fabrics and whip up a fun wall hanging for pre-Christmas anticipation.

And then I have two table runner patterns. One is for spring and one is for fall.

Click HERE to see them in my Etsy shop.

In honor of this convenient update to my shop, I am going to give away one of my patterns to one lucky reader. So take a look at them over in my shop and then come back here and leave a comment saying which of the four patterns you would like to receive. Be sure to also leave your contact information. If I can't contact you, you can't win! Since the prize for this giveaway is a pdf file, this giveaway is open to readers from anywhere in the world, as long as you have a working email address!

This giveaway will end and winner will be announced sometime in the next week or two, when I have time to do it! School and my real job and my home and children's schedules are all back in full swing here, so when I have time is about as precise as I can get for the ending time of the giveaway!

Happy Stitching!

Knitting Away ~ Entrelac Progress

It's cold and snowy here in New England with more snow in the forecast for tomorrow. We are fully expecting another no-school day and the kids are all excited! It's been quite a winter here so far, but with a project like the one I have been working on to keep my hands busy, it so hard to get down about the weather. Just look at the gorgeous colors I have on my lap every evening...

Delicious, wouldn't you say?

So bright and cheerful too!

And just look at all that wonderful texture!

Every new rectangle is a surprise with the long color changes and varying thickness of the yarn.

No matter how you look at this project, it's just happy!

Even the back side is fun to look at!

I've never been much of a fan of knit or crochet patterns that have a definite front and back for afghans, but as wrong sides go, this one is kind of fun. I think once this baby blanket is finished and pinned out and blocked, a lot of the waviness will flatten out. But even if it doesn't, what baby doesn't love great texture to cuddle?

This entrelac knitting project is certainly brightening up the long, dark winter evenings for me. How about you? Are you working on any fun projects to get you through the winter?

Happy Stitching!
