Hello! I'm sitting here writing this blogpost with a fan on, trying desperately to keep cool! I don't think we are ever satisfied with our weather are we? These days, I much prefer it to be cooler - I think it's partly due to some of my medications which make me very sensitive to the sun, so I avoid it as much as possible. I'm knitting on my bamboo and cotton wrap which is perfect for working on while it's so hot and sticky! I'll share progress photos next week.
This week's prize is full of lovely things for you. There is a set of Knit Pro SmartStix Deluxe interchangeable needles. I love Knit Pro needles, they are always my go-to needles for any kind of knitting. There is a beautiful skein of Lucy Locket Land Devonia yarn which has been given anonymously, a gorgeous skein of Chameleon Yarns superwash merino/nylon in the Rainbow Skies colourway which has been donated by an Instagram friend Ruth and a set of Norah George miniskeins which has been donated by another Instagram friend Marja. The lovely folk at Yarndale have donated a tote bag and sheep pin badge, and there is a sachet of Euclan which has been donated anonymously, as well as a gorgeous dragonfly progress keeper which has been donated by Scarlet Stitchcraft. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated prizes.
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 25th July, 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. With all your donations and the proceeds of my latest knitting pattern sales, the total raised is now £18,400! Thank you and stay safe! xxx
