Our baby is turning one!

And by baby, I mean the giant yarn baby that is Wandering Cat Yarns!

Yep, that's right - on June 19 we celebrate one whole year of throwing dye at yarn and feeding your (and our) fibre habit!

To celebrate (and thankt you all for helping us reach this milestone) we are holding a contest!

First the good stuff - the prize:

A copy of my newly released Daenerys pattern
(If you have already purchased the pattern, we will substitute Artemis, or a shawl pattern of your choice - up to $5 value)
....and two lovely soft skeins of Top Cat (80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, 10% nylon) in Vampire's Kiss to make it!

To enter:

Leave a comment here, or on Mom's blog - it's as easy as that!

Extra entries:

Buy yarn - Each skein of Wandering Cat Yarns purchased (within contest timeline) will earn you an entry.

Tell others - Post about it on your blog! That earns you an entry too!

Join in - Join our new Ravelry group for another entry (current members will automatically get one entry)

Rules:
The contest is open now until Midnight on June 19th. Drawing will take place on June 20th through the magic of the random number generator!

Good luck!

And here's some Fraggle fun just because I can....

Hmm. We have lots in common -- yarn, George R. R. Martin, and Ontario! (Although I only lived in Toronto for two years. My son was born there, he'll be twenty this year. Time flies!)

Love the Daenerys shawl!
