Wanna get your knit on?

November 19, 2016

It's always nice when someone says "thank you", but even nicer when they offer you a lovely gift!

To thank me for trying out their new Take Care Mohair yarn and doing a review, the lovely people at Wool and the Gang are going to gift one of their wonderful kits to one of you.

I must admit that it took me quite some time to choose exactly what I'd like them to give you dear reader – they have a lot of lovely yarns and kits… Given my personal love affair with them, a cowl seemed like just the right thing.  I also wanted something that was quick to knit, would suit anyone, came in lots of colours and would be suitable for all knitting abilities (don't want much, do I?).

As it turned out, the Snood Operator cowl had to be the one!  It's perfect for women:

And for men:

The pattern that comes with the kit is available in English, French, German and Japanese and comes in 3 difficulty levels, starting with absolute beginner, so anyone can make it.

Using their super chunky Crazy Sexy Wool, you can knit one of these cowls up in next to no time – all you need is a pair of 15mm (US19) needles.  I personally love the Midnight Blue and Moss Green colourways, but there are a whopping 38 colours to choose from:

So, if you'd like to win this fabulous kit, just comment below and tell me who you'd be making your cowl for, which colour wool you'd choose, and which language you'd like your pattern in.

This giveaway will close one week from now, at noon GMT on Saturday 26th November 2016.  One winner will be chosen from the entries at random shortly thereafter.  I'll email the winner to let them know and ask for their full name and address.  If I haven't been able to verify the winner within 48hours, another winner will be chosen.  The kit will be sent to the final winner direct from Wool and the Gang and I'll announce the name of the winner by edit to this post, once verified.

Good luck! 🙂

Closed to new entries – winner to be announced shortly!

    My knitting skills are non existent, so I would knit it for myself, unless it turned out OK in which case I'd give it to my bestie. I love the hot pink. I'd need the pattern in English and lots of prayers!! XXXXX

    Oh! What a lovely offer! Thank you! I'd love to knit it for myselff because I've prepared for my husband already. I love "Mustard Sally" in English pattern.

    Ooh, this would make a fab Christmas present for one of my besties 😀 I'd love it in Tweed Grey or Margaux Red (the latter would probably be more her style, but I can't resist a good grey). I wish I could say I'd like the pattern in Japanese, but English it is! x

    This is such a gorgeous give away!!! I would make the cowl for my gorgeous husband Tom to say thank you for all the help, encouragement and love he's given me since we had our baby boy Oliver.  It's been a tough 16 months and I couldn't have done it without him xxx
