Although I didn't get any knitting done last week, I did manage to do some yarn-related bits and bobs first thing in the morning while waiting for the kids to surface each day. Last year, I entered the Deramores Blog Awards with my tape measure cosy pattern. It didn't win, but I did get good feedback from people who made it after seeing the pattern on my blog. Following my Ripple Stitch Cushion pattern release a couple of weeks ago, I decided to have a go at writing it up as a 'proper' downloadable pattern. You can find it here, on Ravelry for free! Once I'd written the pattern, I wanted to give it a test run to check yardage, so I rustled up this pretty, sparkly tape measure cosy whilst catching up on the happenings of the Great British Bake Off final.
Now that I've checked the pattern, I'm offering this cosy as a little giveway prize. To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is leave me a message and tell me what your favourite knitting or crochet notion is. It would be lovely if you decided to become a follower of my blog too. I'll keep the giveway open until midnight next Saturday (October 17th) and will pick a winner by random number selector. I'll post it anywhere so please do enter. The winner will be announced next Sunday. So what are you waiting for?! Get commenting and you never know, it could be your post that gets picked! xxx
