March 15th Blog Contest!

Since the last contest went so well, to win a skein of any Schaeffer yarn that was in stock, I decided to offer that as a prize again.  But what is the contest?  What do you need to do to win? Tell me what you would do with your prize!

The winner will be chosen by the random online number generator on March 15, 2012. Please be sure to leave me your contact information so I can let you know if you have won.  You can also email me the information.


Good Luck!
Regards,
Karen

I would love to make a pair of socks using Anne!

Sandra said...

A hat or cabled beret would show off the fantastic colors.

I can see a pair of fingerless gloves in this yarn--what a beautiful texture!!!Am thinking of a pair using straight needles knit from the side rather than in the round--re a pair from today's Knitting Daily e-book of gloves mitts, and mittens!

This would make a lovely lace scarf...start knitting Christmas gifts early!

Sue Smith said...

I can think of several fine uses for a skein - fingerless gloves, a shawlette or cowl. Yes, cowl - definitely!

Diana said...

I would use my skein of yarn to make a shawlette.

Scheaffer yarn would make a lovely shawlette. I find you cannot have too many shawls and Shawlettes. They can change a plain old tshirt into something everyone talks about. I love it. You could actually be wearing your Jammies and no one would notice. Its the hand knit shawl around your shoulders that they are looking at. LOL I love it. And I never out grow them like my lovely hand knit sweaters.

A Skein of Schaeffer for me would have to be a shawlette. No sense hiding the lovely yarn on your feet. And you will never out grow the shawl. Not like making a sweater and finding you gained weight and can't wear it anymore. A beautiful handknit shawlette gets admired not matter what else you are wearing. :)

Opps I think I left to comments. Sorry. :)

Schaeffer Audrey for a shawl.

I would make a multidirectional scarf..because the colors and texture of the yarn lend themselves so well to that type of pattern...and they are so fun to knit! :)

skittle's mom said...

I would knit a shawl with Audrey. The colours are so beautiful.

Rosemarie Z said...

Schaefer yarns are so colorful. It would make a lovely lacy scarf or shawlette.

Of course fingerless gloves for my daughter who just moved to Colorado!!!

Kathryn Beach said...

I would knit myself a replacement hat for the one that went missing and came home after being thrown in the washing machine - felted :(

Mary Moe said...

I love shawlettes! This yarn would also make a wonderful scarf or beret, or cowl, or......that would be the hardest part, figuring out what to make!

amosellie said...

Nadja said...

The colorways of the Schaeffer yarn are so beautiful and they make lace scarves or shawls one of a kind beauties.

Thanks for the great giveaway! I'd knit an infinity cowl with the beautiful Schaeffer. Something that would show off the super colors, a slipped stitch pattern would be nice. Sara in AL

It's so hard to pick just one item to knit.
I do have my eye on Laura Neilkin's new shawl
With beads.

Stephanie F said...

I think either a shawlette or a pair of gauntlets, depending upon the yardage and the weight, would be the perfect use of a skein of Schaeffer yarn!

Laura said...

I'd still do a shawl... and I'd still use Audrey or Andrea. I might throw in a few beads. I just would love to win Schaefer yarn!

Anonymous said...

Maybe a little baby sweater or bolero, with Anne, or maybe a scarf for me!

I would knit the scarf pattern that calls for beads that I've been admiring for several months. Lacy and beads sounds perfect to me.

susan said...

I would make a scarf or shawl with some YUMMY and beautiful Anne!

Artaud said...

I would make a "Superior Cowl" (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/superior-cowl) with a skein of Andrea...hard to say which color though!
