September Giveaway

Blog Giveaway

I LOVE comments. It feels like a little cyber hug when someone like you takes the time to leave a comment here. There are some of you who comment regularly and I’ve come to know you guys a little better each time. So this month I would like to show my gratitude to you. Yes, YOU, my fellow commenters!

On the left sidebar of my blog, I have a list of “Awesome Commenters” which displays the top 10 commenters on my blog. Every time someone leaves a comment, their name goes into the system. The more you comment, the higher you are at the top. I’ve reset it yesterday and the person at the top of my Awesome Commenters at the end of September wins the prize!

As I’ve hinted in my last post, Vivian of Ecoyarns is proudly sponsoring my giveaway this month. So what’s the prize?

Organic Cotton Knitted Washcloth Kit worth over $35!
Organic Cotton Knitted Washcloths Kit

The kit includes Pakucho Organic Cotton yarn in 3 naturally pigmented colours. Pakucho cotton has been traditionally grown in Peru for over 4,500 years! No pesticides, herbicides or other agri-chemicals are used to grow or color these yarns. All harvesting and colour sorting are still done by hand.

The colours included in this kit are natural, sage and dark green. Pakucho cotton is exclusively available in Australia through Ecoyarns.

The kit also comes with three washcloth knitting patterns designed by Vivian herself. The patterns are to knit garter stich, moss stitich and eiffel tower washcloths.

OR if you’re not interested in the kit, you may choose a $20 Ecoyarns Gift Certificate instead, which can be redeemed against the cost of any product in the store.

So my fellow readers, comment away! I’m especially looking forward to hearing from those who lurk in the shadows shyly. Seriously, I don’t bite! 🙂

If you don’t want to miss any opportunity to comment on a new blog post, get automatic updates from me via email or RSS. Chat to you soon!

P.S. I will ship the kit internationally. All are welcome to comment!
