Sporting Beret and Giveaway

This week Quince & Co. published a new pattern in their e-newsletter called the Sporting Beret.

Take a look at the pattern page.

Notice anything interesting about the designer?

Yep, that's me! I've finally met my goal of becoming professionally published.

In honor of this achievement, I will be giving away 1 skein of Quince & Co.'s Puffin yarn, which is the recommended yarn for my pattern.

I love this yarn. It is warm, soft, supple and durable. To give you an idea of just how durable it is... I once re-knit the same sweater 3 times, frogged it and then made it into a poncho and the yarn still looked terrific. 

The Sporting Beret is a quick knit and will probably only take a couple of hours for you to make. The pattern uses less than one skein of Puffin, making it a nice stash buster for those lonely bulky skeins laying around the house.

If you would like to receive a yummy skein of Puffin, leave a comment on this blog post by December 11th (Tuesday at 11:59pm)) with your email address or Ravelry name and share what your favorite type of project is to knit with bulky yarn. On Wednesday, I will use the random number generator to pick a winner. That winner will receive one skein of Puffin in the Honey colorway. Which looks like this...

Don't forget to check back to see if you've won!
