First is this little Coats and Clark book from 1967. It’s mostly knit, but has several crochet patterns, including some lovely afghan stitch mittens. The other 11 books are old copies of Workbasket Magazine. These are not in mint condition – NOT. But, they are intact and full of amazing patterns, recipes, gardening tips, etc. If you’re not familiar with Workbasket, you’ve been missing out!
READ THE RULES BELOW AND ANSWER THE FOLLOWING QUESTION:
WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO USE UP YARN SCRAPS (FROM INCHES TO PARTIAL OR TOTAL ORPHAN SKEINS)? POST A LINK IF YOU CAN.
Here are the rules:
Each item will be mailed to the winner by USPS – books by media mail. For now, this contest will only be open to participants with a U.S. mailing address.
This is how it will work. Each Monday, I’ll pose a question on my blog. Everyone who answers the questions will be entered in the drawing on the last day of that month. Some ‘answers’ may require you to post a link to a specific pattern or site. The winner will be announced along with the next Monday’s question. The winner will have 48 hours to contact me with mailing information. If the winner doesn’t contact me, the prize will be offered on another occasion.
RESPONSES MUST BE POSTED HERE AND NOT EMAILED TO ME PRIVATELY OR POSTED ELSEWHERE FOR ENTRY.
TO MAKE IT CRYSTAL CLEAR, THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED ON THE DAY OF EACH MONTH (OR SHORTLY THEREAFTER) AND THE WINNER MUST EMAIL ME (firstname.lastname@example.org) WITHIN 48 HOURS OF THE ANNOUNCEMENT. So, for sanity’s sake, that deadline will really mean that I need to hear from you no later than 8 PM the following Monday (so you have plenty of time to email me and I’ll get the email for sure even if I don’t sign on to my email on a Sunday).
Simply enter to win by leaving a comment on this post answering the question posed.
