Winners and another giveaway to get you jingling your way into December!

In an attempt to be organised, I've actually managed to pick the winners from last month's giveaway and sort out another prize for November's Pay it Forward giveaway. I know, get me! I wrote down all the names of everyone who entered via my blog, Facebook and Instagram on separate pieces of paper and then mixed them up in a bowl! All very scientific! Two names were selected at random and I'm very pleased to announce the two winners of the Stylecraft Candy Swirl yarn cakes.

Winner of the gorgeous purple 'Sugar Plum' is Gill Moore from her Facebook entry...

and the winner of the cake of 'Blueberry Gum' is Ourtimenow84 from her Instagram entry.

Congratulations to both winners. I'll be getting in touch with you to get your details. Thank you everyone for entering and if you didn't win, perhaps you'll be luckier with this month's prize. I have a set of festive jingly bell stitch markers from the fabulous Fripperies and Bibelots

They are guaranteed to get you feeling all Christmassy as you finish up your gift knits next month. If you'd like to be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is to leave me a comment on my blog, telling me what your favourite part of Christmas is. The giveaway will stay open until midnight on November 30th and after that time I'll use a random number generator to pick a winner. Please make sure that it's easy for me to get in touch with you by leaving your Ravelry or Instagram name or some other way for me to contact you should you be the winner. If I haven't heard from the winner after a week, I'll pick another winner. The giveaway is open to you wherever you live, so please do enter! Good luck! xxx

Such festive stitch markers, the perfect things to have dangling from the Christmas knitting. My favourite part of Christmas is having the family all together, it's even more important to me now that my kids have left home and my parents are ageing.

Jingly stitch markers! Brilliant giveaway. Favourite bit of Christmas - If I'm honest, it's probably the moment when all the decorations are back in the loft and I can clean the house! To be fair, I'm not such a Grinch - we do have 4 birthdays, Christmas and New Year all within 6 weeks, so I'm usually all celebrated out by that point. Otherwise, it's my girls being home and listening to the Festival of 9 Lessons and Carols on Radio 4 on Christmas Eve. We're usually pottering in the kitchen at that point and I love it. xx

I think my favourite part of Christmas is when the meal is cooked and the family is sitting down to eat. We don't go overboard on decorations, but there's a real tree, and bonus points if there's snow on the ground outside.

Cute stitch markers. It would be rather fun to have a jingly project, as long as you weren't trying any stealth knitting in the last few days up to Christmas!!!

There are so many wonderful parts of Christmas, that I'm not sure which is my favorite. Watching my husband and kids assemble the artificial tree is good. And so is the joy my kids get from watching a house in our neighborhood who always sets their lights to music. Maybe, the real joy is in watching my children's joy! Love your site!

Lovely festive giveaway. My favourite part of Christmas is getting together with family and friends. We usually eat too much and play silly games. Masoup on Ravelry

I love having our family together for Christmas but I also enjoy the days between Christmas and New Year when I normally get a bit of time off work and I can relax with my knitting or sewing.
