Free Yarn Giveaways to Celebrate My Etsyversary

For the next two weeks I'll be celebrating my first year selling yarn and knitting supplies on Etsy by giving stuff away! For every purchase made in my Knit! shop on etsy, you will receive one entry into a drawing for some fantastic prizes. I'm also giving away one "free" entry to everyone who posts a comment on this post with your name and email address so I can contact you if you win.

Grand Prize: a luxury handmade project bag filled with goodies including 3 skeins of sock yarn, lantern moon sock needles, a quilted sock needle holder, a set of stitch markers and a "Knitter's Rule" needle sizer and gauge checker from etsy seller karatstix. The entire thing is worth over $150.00! My mom is the seamstress in the family so she's sewing these gorgeous bags for me now. As soon as she is finished, I'll add a photo of the whole lot of goodies here.

There will also be additional prizes of yarn, kits, stitch markers, sold out copies of Interweave Knits and other goodies.

I'm very excited about the new Sock Yarn Cinema monthly sock yarn club, where I'll be creating colorways to celebrate my favorite movies and some of yours. You can join for 3, 6, or 12 months and you'll get great discounts on sock yarn, shipping, and extra goodies every month. Sock yarn club subscriptions count for multiple entries in my Etsyversary drawing depending on the duration of the club. Also, all my handspuns are on sale for 20% off and I'll even be adding some new ones at sale prices.

I've added some fun new items to my shop and will continue adding new things throughout the next two weeks of contest fun so check back often. I offer a flat shipping cost for whatever you buy in my shop, so get as many entries as you can!

I wonder if you will post comments on why you chose the movies to match the colorways: did you begin with the movie or begin with the color? I'd love to learn more about the creative process.

Just to answer your query SLR...

The coloways shown in the graphic are there as an example of past work. The sock yarn cinema club will be all new colorways inspired by the films. I guess the way it came up was I was watching "Wizard of Oz" and started thinking about a green and gold colorway. It made me realize that films can inspire fantastic color combinations!

So, I started writing a list of my favorite movies and was amazed how quickly color combinations came to mind for each one. For this club I chose the movies that inspired the best color combos, and ones that would really vary. I especially tried to make sure there were a few "manly" colorways, because it can be so hard to find hand-dyed sock yarns appropriate for the men in our lives!

It isn't very complicated, but that was the creative process behind the idea. I'm very excited to start dyeing up some skeins.

Love your Etsy shop and what a great giveaway.

Happy Etsyversary!!!

Janey said...

You said the magic words "sock yarn" - even if I am over-burdened by what is OTN at the moment. (Which includes shrug, two dishcloths, and a sweater.)

Happy anniversary. The scarflettes in your etsy shop are very pretty. I needed one yesterday - there was snow falling not too far away!

Happy knitting,
Janey
