After what has felt like a very cold, damp and dreary week, the sun has finally appeared here and the weather looks promising for the next few days. Thank goodness for that! It's a Bank Holiday weekend here in the UK, so the sunshine and warmer weather will be very welcome. I'm planning a weekend of selfish knitting as a break from all the secret projects I'm currently working on, as well as time to read.
This week's prize is a sock knitter's dream! The prize includes a cute sheep print project bag with lampwork glass bead stitched by my friend Michele who owns Three Bags Full in the USA. There is a sock set from Giddy Yarns which was donated by Sharon on Instagram. I bought some yarn she was destashing and she very kindly included a couple of extra skeins to use as prizes. This sock set is called 'Earl Grey and Lemon Cupcake' and it is as delicious as it sounds! There is a set of 5 miniskeins dyed in delicate pastel colours which has been donated by Shannon who runs Blue Fern Yarns and two balls of Drops Fabel sock yarn which has been donated by Sally and colleagues. To go with all this yarn, there is a Knit Pro Symfonie 2.5mm circular needle which has been donated by Suffolk Socks, a yarny notepad, pen and pin badge which are all from Lana Bou and 5 pretty stitch markers. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated a prize.
I'm sure that you know the score by now, but I'll tell you how to enter anyway! You have a chance to win all these gorgeous prizes for a minimum donation of £2! Are you tempted to try your luck? Here's everything you need to know. This giveaway will run this coming Sunday 30th May, closing at 23:55. To enter, go to my JustGiving page here and buy your virtual raffle tickets by donating £2 or more. £2 gets you 2 tickets, £3 gets you 3 tickets, £5 gets you 5 tickets and so on. The more you donate, the greater your chance of winning. You will need to leave your Instagram or Ravelry name, or tick the box to share your email address with me when you make your donation, so that I can contact you if you are the winner. This is really important as I have no way of knowing who you are otherwise. Each week, I still get donations where no name or email is left, so if that person's number comes up in the random number generator, I have no idea who it is! All your donations go the Myositis UK to help fund research into this incurable muscle disease, so thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your support. Every single donation is important. Our next milestone to pass is £17,000 and I have everything crossed that we do that on Sunday! Thank you and stay safe! xxx
