November Giveaway!

Woah! Yesterday flew by, and today almost got away from me, too!

So this month, (in honor of a little event we have in the United States called Election Day), I'm giving you all A CHOICE!

I'll be gifting TWO of my readers their favorite patterns at the end of the month! The patterns can be sweaters, socks, shawls, anything- as long as it's $10 or less, it's yours!

To enter the giveaway, leave a link to your favorite pattern's Ravelry page, and tell me why you love it. Don't forget to let me know how to contact you!

Giveaways like this are possible thanks to ad revenue I get from Google ads I put on my blog. If you happen to see an interesting ad, please take the time to go check it out! You'll find cool stuff, and I'll be able to continue brining you lovely giveaways!

Good luck!

  13. love all the patterns by this designer. Current favorites are http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/europa and http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/shetland-ruffles

  17. I especially love the one I am working on right now: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lizard-ridge I fell in love with it the first time I saw it and have finally bought the yarn and have about 8 squares completed. They go so quickly so I stop working on it and then do another project or two.

    I'm sisterrobinson on ravelry.

  18. I really love the look of this one and I think I will learn new techniques which is always a bonus! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/weave-it

  19. I would love to make this http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/eiffel-tower-shawl
    I have never knit lace successfully but would be willing to count every stitch every row for this one.

  20. I would love to make this zip up cardigan called pinoli:

  21. What a great giveaway, thank you so much for running this!

    I am in L-O-V-E with the Artemist shawl by Marisa Hernandez (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/artemist) - it's so elegant and architectural. I'm desperate to make it!

    I'm LeStyleophile on Rav :)

    [Deleted my first post because I can't read - forgot to say **why** I love this pattern!]

  22. Right now I'm feeling a particular itch to make these fingerless mitts-


  23. just one? my queue is exploding! i would love to cast on the hooray cardigan sometime soon.


  24. I've had my eye on the Idlewood sweater for some time: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/idlewood

  25. Oh, how hard to pick just one, but thank you for such a generous giveaway! I have been obsessing over this sweater for a while: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/elfe

    I just love stripes and I want to mix two hand-dyed yarns and see what happens!

  26. Right now I love this cropped pullover: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chuck. With a pair of tights too, it seems like the perfect way to transition my "summer" dresses into fall/winter.

    (Oops! Forgot to include that I'm Lysaknits on Rav.)

  27. I pick Moore: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/moore-2

    for the flattering vertical lines, the assymetrical shape, the different looks possible with varying yarn choices, and the fact that it also looks cozy & comfy to wear - wish I had one right now to put on!

  28. Right now...because it is getting colder here...


    Thanks for the fun!

  29. Nice blog and wonderful give away! Since it is getting colder here these mittens would be wonderful!! http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lucky-horse-mittens

  30. I really like this cardi:


  31. I've adored this pattern since the latest Knit Picks came in the mail.


  32. This is a very simple yet lovely pattern, easy and fun to follow. I used Artyarns Silk Rhapsody yarns in black. You could make this pattern in different weights or types of yarn for any season!


    brat58 on Ravelry thank you for a very nice offer!

  33. I'm liking the Spectra scarf right now. I could use up all my non-sock fingering weight leftovers. Yay!

    Wahoomerryf on Rav

  34. I've been in a sweater mood lately
    this one is my current favorite

    I'm squiggi on rav

  35. How generous of you to do a giveaway!

    My pick: Nanook. (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/nanook). Because MUST KNOW HOW IT WORKS. I'm terribly intrigued by the construction of this cardigan, and my curiosity is helped along by all sorts of tantalising hints on others' project pages. I can't not know.

    I'm carminezuigiber on Rav. Cheers :)

  36. Hi, too many good good patterns on Rav. I love Veera Kalimaki but what about a Ravelry gift card for 10 dollars? It would be nice for Christmas!
    Anyway I love Fallmasche and Joji. I would probably buy Pole.

  37. I just got into knitting lace shawls, so right now I like Bakau (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bakau). It's simple, pretty, and not too frilly to be wearable.

  38. I have wanted to make this sweater since the moment I laid eyes on it. I just haven't yet.


  39. It took me a while to decide but I think I like http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/kelmscott the best. It's so feminine looking - and probably not something I'd buy for myself so it would be a great pattern to win :) (cnuland on Rav)

  40. I'd love to knit Vivian by Ysolda Teague: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/vivian I love cables and the shaping is just so curvy and flattering. I'm convinced I would wear it all. the. time. Vitamin D is another one that I'd consider, as it is just so swingy: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/vitamin-d (anneh on Rav)
