Reader Appreciation Summer FunTime Giveaway!

PhotobucketHerebe the next installment of the Reader Appreciation SummerFunTime Giveaway!

Congratulations to last week's winner, theyarniad.
You can message me on Rav or email me at canarysanctuary at yahoo dot com with your mailing address so I can get the goodies out to you pronto.

Huzzah! We continue on to week three:

-one Spring/Summer issue of Good Housekeeping Needlecraft, 1973
this mag is particularly interesting, because it includes quilting, knitting, crochet, and other crafts

-one pre-wound (by me, hehe) wool laceweight yarn. Sorry, no specs. I bought this one online, and in anticipation of using it directly, chucked the label many ages agoPhotobucket

-one skein Lacet (50% cotton, 50% acrylic, 150 m)

-one skein Paton's Bohemian (polyester and acrylic, 62 m)

Here you see an example of the Simplicity patterns they feature (though unfortunately the pattern itself isn't in the mag).

Thanks everybody, and good luck!

Yay!! Thank you so much! I'll message you on Rav right away. Also, the poncho on the cover of that GH Needlecraft magazine is pretty amazing. Wow!

Oh that magazine looks fun :D I love old craft magazines, i have buch next to my favourite armchair. When i don´t feel like knitting i can just take a look at old times.

Love that vintage vibe of his very generous prize. I am mad for 70's fashion!

I love the old craft magazines, pre 1980s. I learned to knit and crochet during the 1973-74 school year. Embroidered owls were a popular design then.

Love your blog, your designs, and the other designers you showcase. Thank you for your contest.
