A Big Thank You and Giveaway




A great big thank you to Darcy from Graphically designing for giving my blog a much needed Makeover! In celebration of the new blog I have decided to give away one of my handmade cowls. Just simply leave me a comment and I will randomly draw a name on March 7th. (be sure to leave me an email if you are unregistered). Up for grabs is this lovely pink cowl. Perfect for brighting up the dreariest of days. Handknit with a super soft acrylic mix yarn, this gorgeous cowl just slips right over your head. A great alternative to a scarf. Knit in a rasberry color, I added a little super soft white fake "fur" yarn along the bottom of the cowl. Also included is this removable flower brooch. Hand sewn and attatched to a bar pin it adds a little sparkle~~Every girl needs sparkle! (If you are allergic to wool I can substitute a wool free cowl!). Also if you're in the market for a blog makeover, check out darcy's website, just click on the pretty butterfly!

The cowl is really pretty! I wish I could knit, but no telling what I'd end up with. More than likely a yarn ball for my cat! However, I very much appreciate the knitting talents of others. Thank you for the chance to win!

Ellen - Max Scent Soy Candles said...

Becca - So I'm reading your blog giveaway post and thinking "Oh, Darn, I'm completely allergic to wool!" Then I read one sentence more & I'm thinking "Yeah, she's willing to make the beatiful cowl yarn-free!" Please enter me in your generous drawing. Your blog is absolutely gorgeous! I love the colors.
