Gift-A-Long (pattern specials!)

Independent designers on Ravelry have been working really hard over the past week to pull together an awesome pre-holidays event! It’s perfect if you want to get some holiday knitting done, or just buy lovely indie patterns and win some awesome prizes!

Basically, from November 1st (when this post goes live) to November 15th, 11:59pm GMT, you can get 25% off hundreds of independently published patterns! You can see the whole list here, or visually on Pinterest (see the Ravelry group for the various board links). Additionally, there are a bunch of different KALs/ CALs which last from November 1st to December 31st. There are tons of great prizes (yarn, patterns, notions, and everything else you can think of)! The KALs will all be run through the Indie Gift-A-Long group.

I’m putting all 6 of my independently published (and not free) patterns on special for the duration of the Gift-A-Long (Nov 1-15). Use the code GIFTALONG for 25% off your purchase. All of my patterns are available here but you can also use the “buy here” links toward the end of this post to purchase any of the patterns. I’ll be around throughout the Gift-A-Long, blogging, knitting, and maybe even giving away some prizes! All of my 6 patterns can be knit as part of the KAL and make you eligible for the prizes.

Here are the six patterns which I am including in the sale:

Please feel free to contact me at any point during the Gift-A-Long about any questions you might have. You can always leave a comment here, e-mail me at likepurlsoffastring@gmail.com, or contact me on Ravelry. E-mail will likely get the fastest response. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.

I hope you take advantage of the great sales and prizes for this event. Happy knitting!

The Best of LPOAS 2012 (Part 2: May- August)

I’m totally stealing this idea from the lovely Karen over at Chookoolonks! I’m going to post four months worth of favourites from this year each day over the next 3 days. Each photo is linked below it to the post in which it first appeared. It’s been so much fun to sort through all of the great moments from this year- I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! This is part 2- May to August.

Giveaway winners!

Hello! I’m just doing a quick check in to let you know who the winner of the pattern giveaway is. (I’m a day late, and terribly sorry, but I have no excuse other than traveling is exhausting and sleep looked really good yesterday.)

I’ll have an NYC travel post up shortly, and then more US travel posts up later this week. Without further ado, the winner is…

Comment number 16, KnittingDancer! Knittingdancer, I’ve sent the pattern to your Ravelry account.

Thanks to everyone for your entries, and if you didn’t win, you can still buy Solis (buy now) and Aestas (buy now) on Ravelry, and the 15% discount code ravellenicsintro2012 is good until August 4th.

(If anyone uses RSS to keep track of your blog, I’ve recently set up a Feedburner Feed for this blog here if you’d like to subscribe.)

Coming soon…

I’ve got two patterns being tested right now. Both remind me of summer and they would be perfect knits for fall as well. Light and airy. My goal is to release them on the 23rd of this month in time for the Ravellenic games. There amy even be a special coupon code for those of you who want to buy the patterns for your Ravellenic projects!

The patterns will be sold separately and as a set. The first pattern is a beret, called Aestas (summer in Latin) and the second is a fingerless mitt pattern, with two versions, called Solis (“of the sun”). (Rav link, Rav link)

Be sure to check back on the 23rd for the pattern release and a giveaway!

I made some cookies a few days ago and I really liked them. They are Homemade Oreos from Smitten Kitchen and the recipe is here. We delivered them to some new neighbours but I definitely kept some here! So good! I recently got the Martha Stewart cupcake book, so there should be a lot more baking around here!

Have a great weekend!
