September/October Lotus Hat Kit Giveaway

The Lotus Hat.......

This months blog was supposed to be a scarf knit from 100% qiviut unfortunately we sold out of qiviut at the Kitchener/waterloo knitting show and the batch of qiviut we have just finished making  is almost all sold....mmmm not easy to plan anything in advance here ! We are buying another machine that will give us 1.5 Times more output so in 2013 we will have much more production....i look forward to that day !

              I opted to knit this months blog post from 50% qiviut-50%merino in a lovely 3ply.
This is the yarn
As you can see its a Gorgeous deep rich brown colour.....perfect for Autumn. The qiviut used  in this blend is a dark grey shade , i dyed the merino in a seal brown colour to blend it all together.

Not sure how much yarn will be required as i'm knitting not only the Lotus hat but the ''Circle Lotus scarf'' too.
This is the Lotus hat below knit from shetland wool, you'll find the free pattern here on my other blog :

The lotus Infinity scarf is just about to be cast on, i will write the pattern as i knit and include pictures in this post. One winner will receive the scarf pattern and yarn, another winner will receive the hat pattern and yarn .

Its almost complete will add the pattern soon and updated photo of the hand dyed finished scarf.....fancy a bright blueberry color !


to enter, simply tell us would you prefer the hat kit or scarf kit,(i know its a little difficult to choose as the scarf pictures are not yet posted) leave you answer in the comments section and 2 winners will be drawn at random.
Open from september 17th TO October 31st 2012.

Readers will no longer be able to leave Anonymous comments......we found some people are entering more than once....not fair !
