Weekend Hats Giveaway!

I’m expecting baby #2 in early April (another girl!). Lately I’ve been moving things around getting ready for my toddler to move into the bigger bedroom and I unearthed a few extra copies of my books, Weekend Hats, and New England Knits, left over from the last book signing we did a couple of years ago.

I thought it’d be fun to give a copy of  away, and the folks at Fairmount Fibers and Eucalan were kind enough to share some of their good stuff to go along with the book!

The a copy of  winner will get a copy of Weekend Hats, some individual-sized Eucalan wool washes in several scents, and 2 skeins of Manos Silk Blend to make my pattern, the Greenery Beret, from the book.

Weekend Hats on Amazon

See all of the book patterns on Ravelry here.

This contest is open until the end of 11/11/13 EST. To enter, just leave a comment here. I will ship to any country, so anyone may enter. I’ll use a random number generator to pick the winning entry.
