Reader Appreciation Summer FunTime Giveaway!

Welcome to the next installment of the Reader Appreciation SummerFunTime Giveaway!

Congratulations to last week's winner, patricia.
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.

Yippee! We continue on to week four.

This week we have:

-one McCall's "Pillow Book" (from about 1974), including 60 different crochet, knit, embroidered, quilted, etc... pillows!

-one photocopied Patons "The Great Outdoors" (from about mid 1970s). Focuses mostly on adult sized cowichan-style sweaters.

Photobucket-two pattern leaflets, from about the mid 70's as well. One is for berets and scarves, the other are "mini tops" (both leaflets include knit and crochet)

-two booklets of patterns. One from 1982, including patterns for kids (check out the awesome hamburger sweater pictured here!), the other from the early 80s as well, including patterns for kids and adults (with sweaters and accessories)

-two skeins of Rosarios 4 yarn - one a green/white/grey twisted blend (about a worsted weight) and the other a slubby greenish grey, 100% wool,130 m.

-one wee teddy bear, handknit by me! (his name is Emerald Joe)

FYI: Next Sunday, July 5, there won't be another draw. I'll try to get in touch with this week's winner on July 5, but failing that, it will be announced when the giveaway returns on July 12.

That yarn looks lovely! And I love pillows (and teddy bears with fancy names ;)). Thanks for generously sending out all these wonderful things!

Ok, that hamburger sweater is just hilarious. I kind of want to make one for my (25 year old) brother. The hamburger is so realistic!!
