The Countdown to The Stylecraft Special DK Blog Tour has begun!


Am I excited? You bet I am!! I can remember reading over on Lucy's blog in Attic24 about a competition to come up with a new colour for the Stylecraft Special DK yarn range some months ago. The final 10 colours were put to the public vote in May, with the top 3 yarns being added to the range. But because they all looked so brilliant together, Stylecraft have decided to release a limited edition pack of all 10 colours. These packs are going to be launched at Ally Pally this October. 

So what has this to do with me I hear you ask! Well, fast forward to the beginning of August when I was invited to take part in the blog tour to launch the pack. Not only that, I've designed something to show off the yarns. Thankfully the yarn arrived while I was able to knit! I'll be publishing my first ever knitting pattern on Saturday to coincide with my blog post! GULP! Stylecraft are giving away a free pack of the yarns each day of the blog tour which kicks off this coming Friday. So it's worth keeping an eye on exactly where the blog tour is heading each day by looking at the Stylecraft Facebook page. See you on Saturday! xxx

Exciting ... You must be so thrilled to be getting a pattern published in connection with Stylecraft. Congratulations, I shall be watching your blog avidly. I will probably buy one of the packs rather than hope to win. Will they be available online after Ally Pally?

Good luck and well done, you deserve it
