Whoop! Whoop! I Won a Giveaway!!!!

Do you know people who often seem to win things, raffle prizes, lottery money, games of chance? I do, my son is one of them – it is a bit of a family joke. Me – no – it is not something that I’m familiar with – this winning thing – however maybe the tide has turned!

I am one to the lucky 4 winners 0f a Giveaway on Janette’s wonderful blog “the Green Dragonfly” in New Zealand.     Hurrrraaaayyyyy!!!!!

Janette (that is her picture below) made these House Slippers from a pattern by Tara at Mamacheecrochet-slippers-3

and wore them in a post – she got such a response that Tara was generous enough to offer not one but TWO patterns in a giveaway, to not one but FOUR lucky followers of Janette’s blog and Yippity-do-dah! It turns out I am one of the four – how happy am I!!!!!

I have chosen the pattern for the House Slippers, like Janette’s above AND the Fox Slippers, click on the links to see pictures and where you can buy the patterns.

I think my grandchildren will love the Fox Slippers – but Yikes! that means making 16!!! Hope the patterns arrive soon so that I can make a start to get them done before winter sets in. (Maybe winter 2016 is more realistic?!)

A huge thanks goes out to Janette for hosting the giveaway and to Tara for generously offering the prizes. Isn’t this blogging community ❤ GREAT!

I am joining Ginny’s Yarn Along with this post, and she invites us to add a book that we are reading. Now I used to read avidly, but something happened, not sure what , and I just seemed to lose the concentration for reading. However Cathy mentioned a couple of books in our Photo Challenge, this week. The subject is ‘Wisdom’ which is a pretty tough subject to photograph, don’t you think! It is always fascinating to see the variety of interpretations within the challenge. One of the books Cathy mentioned as containing WISDOM is Charles Kingsley’s ‘The Water Babies’. I’ve never read it, and think that now might be a good time to do so. I was able to download it for free onto my iPad.

While I wait for the patterns to arrive I am still working on the edge of the Cosy Cal blanket – I think it will look great when it is finished, but oh boy – remind me never to edge a blanket in squares again – it really is demanding time and concentration to get them to work out.DSC_0568Are you enjoying any Yarn related fun this week?

    • Thank you Karisma, the patterns have arrived! Exciting! – I’m eager to get going, but I just must finish one or two things before I embark on another project. My w-i-p box is full to bursting. Glad you like the colours of the blanket, they follow Lucy’s choices of Attic24 fairly closely – she is a master at putting colour combos together.


  2. Congratulations to you! Hope you post a pic of your snazzy slippers when you make them 🙂

    • Thank you! Thank you! The blanket is made with Attic24’s Cosy CAL pattern for the main body and i am adding the squares as an edging to make it into the right size for my daughter’s double bed. (remind me NOT to do that again!! it’s causing me brain-ache!!!) I changed the colours slightly to use the ones I already had. Goodness knows when the Ta Dah! moment is going to arrive, but when it does I will give a full list of the colours and square details.
      You can see all the other CAL blankets on Ravelry – there really are some beauties.

    • Thank you Kim – just (realised I had not replied to you) it is taking me ages to find the time to finish the edging on that blanket, maybe I’ll do a bit today – but at this time of year the garden calls! Glad you like it.
