500 Giveaway!


Last month I hit my 500th post. It was a busy time so the postponed celebrations 
are happening now :)              * *
I'm giving away my new (to me) crochet technique cushion. It's made from the 
Australian yarn, Biggan Design DK Merino in natural, yellow, aqua, olive and brown. 
It's super soft and cuddly and it has no knots from the yellow up (sorry, the experiment 
started at that point ;) The back of the cushion is a citrus-coloured cotton/linen with a
zip, and it comes with a 3 Sheets custom-made insert.

                                                 * *

                                                           * *

It'd make a great neck pillow for reading in bed or to place in the small of your back 
for extra support...


* * * * * *      * * * * * *      * * * * * *      * * * * * *      * * * * * *      * * * * * *      * * * * * *

                                                        * *

I'm also giving away a yarn-bombing diary for 2012 which I bought at the Pompidou
bookshop in Paris...

                                                    * * *

It's super duper fabulous and full of different yarn-bombing pics...

                                                 * *

                                                           * *

Cute projects (to practise your French on while doing your knittery)...

                                                * *

                                                   * *

And a few random crochet/knittery objet d'art... ;)

                                                             * *

                                              * *

So, what do you have to do to win this fine booty? 

                                                             * *

Well, I would prefer it if you are a follower of 3 Sheets or 'like' the 3 Sheets 
Facebook Page... but I'm flexible. This is my thank you to everyone who has 
supported me through my 500 post journey.

                                                 * *

One more thing... if you only like, say, the diary and the cushion is not really your 
thing (or vice versa!), then say so in your comment and I'll do a second random 
pick for the other item if you win.

                                                          * *

Anyway, just leave a comment and I'll do the magic random generator trick on 
Sunday 30th October. Good luck and thank you! :)

Congratulations Kylie on your 500th blog post. I think I too must be close to that... I'd better check.

Gina said...

I've still been lurking away Kylie, not making much noise in the blogosphere anymore but you've lured me over with two wonderous prizes. I've recently taken up crochet (gulp!) and was trying to put into practice the colour-changing technique you demonstrated on an awesome teacosy I'm hooking.. haven't quite figured it out yet but time will get there!
