Two hundred post giveaway

I like how so many bloggers are having their own giveaways to celebrate bloggy milestones, so I'm following suit! I haven't been posting as frequently as some ladies out there, but 200 posts is my milestone. I felt that in honor of one of the initial purpose of this blog and one of my oldest hobbies to date, I will be giving away something custom-knitted. The beauty of this giveaway is that the winner will be able to get what she wants. So here are the options (pictures courtesy of ravlerers):

The first one is a teddy bear. I've knitted two of these and they are a super quick knit. It can be tailored for a girl or boy, i.e. instead of a sweater this little one can come with a dress.

I'm also offering up and elephant stuffed toy. I've never knit this before, but it looks quick and easy!

Next up are the hats. I haven't knitted either of these patterns before, but upon a quick scan of both patterns they look pretty simple!



For something a little more feminine, I'm giving away some fingerless mitts. These two patterns incorporate just the right amount of lace or cable work. Simple patterns that result in beautiful mitts!


If your digits require more coverage I'm offering a pair of glittens. I've knit two pairs of these, so I've got them down!


Keeping up with the cold weather trend, here are a pair of the cutest, prettiest legwarmers I've seen yet. I'll be knitting some up for myself one of these days! I've knit one legwarmer to date, and it looks great so I know I can handle the intricacy of the stitch pattern.

Lastly, the most simple pattern of all.....some ear warmers. I have no excuse to knit this living where I do, so I need somebody to give me one!

So there you have it! Hopefully I've given plenty of options for everybody! I want to get as many people involved in this as possible to make for an interesting, unpredictable result. So....much like other giveaways leave me a comment if you want to be entered. You will get an additional entry if you post about this giveaway somewhere on your blog. And while at first I wasn't going to include this one, what the hell, if you become a follower, that is another entry for ya! But be sure to leave me a comment expressing interest!

You will have until the day I post number 200 (this one is 190). We'll see how long it takes for me to get there!

Off to bed now! I'll post pictures of my haircut soon!

Ooooo! A hat, glittens, fingerless gloves, oh my! Seeing as you have to wear a jacket year round here, these things could come in handy.

I'm already a follower. :)

I want the elephant! :-D

My next crochet project is to learn to make stuffed animals. If I get better at knitting I'll have to try your teddy bear pattern, that's such a great addition to a baby gift, especially if you also make a blanket.

Adorable! I'd be willing to buy an elephant off you! I just bought an elephant onesie, baby booties, and hair clip for a friend who's due in a couple weeks with a jungle theme going in her nursery and I was looking for a stuffed elephant on ETSY and couldn't find any I liked!

all those knit projects look amazing..and I'm still in awe that you can do these. I barely have the patience for a scarf!

So cute! I love the little animals. I am knitter as well, so I totally understand how amazing hand knit items are. I have never made anything as complicated as a teddy bear, but it is super cute. I think the elephant is so cute too..perfect for my 3 month old daughter! pick me!

As an obsessive knitter myself, I have to say that I LOVE all the stuff you've made! Really cool!!

Oh, and I'm going to follow your blog now, if you don't mind. :-)

OK, I'm stopping by from Casey's blog. Love your blog look! And you made those things? Or you can? Are you kidding me? How adorable. I'm super jealous, I really wish I could do the same. Or at least learn to. What a fabulous hobby, (talent). I like the fingerless gloves, the legwarmers, the hats... oh wait, everything! I see you are in Tucson! How crazy is that. We're practically neighbors. Going to have to follow you now. I think we have a lot in common. I read your list. I'll have to go comment there next. ;)
