A CONTEST

As some of my regular readers may have noticed, there is a new addition to the side bar of my blog.

Mom and I have finally put our hand painted creations online! Right now we have some luxurious lace weight yarn and stitch markers up, and in the next couple of weeks, some sock yarn will follow.

And to celebrate we're having a contest!

First the good stuff... the prizes....

First Prize:
Two skeins (totaling about 350 yards) of 100 per cent luxurious Alpaca in our "Petunia" colourway.

Second Prize:
An adorable set of "knitaholic" charmed stitch markers. They fit up to a 5mm needle

Now the rules:

To enter:
1) visit Wandering Cat Yarns and browse around. Then come back here, and leave a comment, letting us know which colourway you liked best. (And feel free to purchase if you are so inclined)
2) Link to the contest on your own blog to help us get the word out.
3) Only one entry per person please

Contest closes at midnight on Monday, July 13, 2009. On Tuesday, July 14 we'll do a draw from all the entries for the prizes!

Good luck and happy knitting!

Hi I went over to the etsy store and I couldn't decide which I liked better the Get Cooking Pt. 2 or the knitaholic stitch markers. Both sets are so unique!

Shirley said...

Oops. Sorry I'm not trying to enter twice but I forgot to ask if you're taking international entries because I live in Finland and I didn't answer the contest question! I liked Mermaid's Lagoon best though Rhonda's Raspberry Jam was a close second.

Jeanne said...

Congrats on the new shop! You know, I really like all of the colorways. Is that helpful? I especially like Rhonda's Rasberry Jam, Mermaid's Lagoon and Bearded Iris...beautiful! I'll link on my blog next update...

Deb said...

Oh wow-what gorgeous pictures-the yarn is lovely. And my faves- hmm- a tie, actually- between Twilight (THAT ALPACA LACE IS SPLENDID) and Louis'mlast Sunset. Love the blend of all that is wild i n that one. Good work. Now I will go and post on my blog!

Jeanne said...

OK, I liked the rasberry jam laceweight so much I had to order it... :-)

Samantha said...

In this order my favourites are: Honeycomb, Bearded Iris and Lemongrass. :)

Alisha said...

Okay I am in love with the bearded iris colorway. Your stitch markers are adorable too.

When I have a little extra for yarn I will be looking at getting some of your yarn for sure!

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I love the Honeycomb colorway! I'm finding myself drawn to golden shades lately. Must be the economy, it's the only way I'll be seeing gold nowadays! I'm posting to my blog tonite.

Nandi said...

I love the yarn! My fav would be the Lemongrass - all the subtle shades of green! I'll definitely be blogging about your blog and etsy store on Only If Bliss Slept.

One Sheep said...

I'd love to see the ladybug stitch markers dancing across the Mermaid's Lagoon. Kitten With a Whiplash sent me.

wenat said...

Oh wow, mermaid's lagoon is both a beautiful name and a gorgeous yarn. Thanks for the fun contest!

Kristen said...

Mermaid's Lagoon is my favorite! So pretty!

Stephanie said...

I've fallen for the Lemongrass. It's summery!

Bearded Iris! Bearded Iris! My favorite flower and ,apparently, colourway!

heather said...

I love the Honeycomb and Lemongrass colorways. Both are perfect for spring and summer. 100% Cashmere, too. Yummy!

OMG, The Lemongrass Cashmere yarn is definitely the hands down winner... but then again the knitterly stitch markers rock too. Loverly stuff, just loverly.

Turtle said...

Kassandra said...

The bearded iris colorway is my favorite!

KT said...

I like the bearded iris and the mermaid's lagoon, but they're kindof similar to other dyers I've seen. The Lemongrass, though, that's a special colorway. So vibrant and happy! It wins my vote. KTLV on Ravelry.

Mujercita said...

I love the mermaid's lagoon AND the bearded iris; I can't choose just one!

Darcy's Knotty Knitter said...

I love the Mermaids Lagoon.Hugs Darcy

Jersey said...

I absolutely love the bearded iris colorway. Irises are my favorite and the color is gorgeous.

helenlam said...

Love the Bugnuts. The new shop looks lovely.

Elaine said...

So many pretty colors - congrats on a great-looking site. I'm not much of a lace knitter, but the Bearded Iris - Hand-Painted Cashmere Lace Yarn is very very tempting.

Off soon to post on my website elaine-knitting.blogspot.com

Elaine said...

OK - I've just posted it on my blog:

pick me, pick me. I love both of the prizes!

knitting fool said...

I absolutely LOVE the bearded iris cashmere. Looks like heaven to me and I'd love to win either prize (although of course I'd prefer to win the beautiful yarn!)

EJ said...

I'm also a big fan of the bearded iris cashmere - it is just beautiful.
The prize yarn is gorgeous too.

Sarah said...

I love "Louis' Last Sunrise". You don't see enough gorgeous warm colorways!

Sigrun said...

Tough choice between Mermaid Lagoon and Lemongrass. i guess Lemongrass wins the toss. The stitch markers are cute. I just went to Michaels to check out supplies for making some funky stitch markers, but winning them would be soooo much easier. Glad i happened on your site.

Erin said...

Honeycomb is gorgeous--beautiful colorways!

AmIAKnitterYet said...

mermaid's lagoon is the one that caught my eye!

Hope I win some of your gorgeous yarn.

ds said...

hi - having a real hard time choosing between Lemon Grass and Bearded Iris. Is it really necessary to make a hard, fast decision? Ok then, Lemon Grass.

Beverly said...

First Instinct was to say: Louis' last, but i'm trying to expand my color horizons so mermaid lagoon gets my vote.
More than happy to link to your contest. I'm having one of my own!!

Kim said...

Congrats on opening your Etsy store. I will visit it often.

I love, love, love the Lemongrass...no- the mermaid's lagoon...um, all of the colorways are incredible.

squiggi said...

I'm pretty fond of the twilight color. There's just something about it.

katerina said...
