$60 Knitting Shopping Spree Giveaway

Just in time for Christmas, I'm happy to host a $60 shopping spree giveaway from Judy's Colors.  If you're not familiar with these, you have to check them out.  Judy has a great selection of knitting patterns and kits, from beginner to advanced.  She currently features 2 great options - stockings or mittens.  I had a chance to review and knit a stocking from the "Candy Cane" line, shown below:


I chose the pink and green one.  The directions were terrific, and easy to follow.  I did color a bit outside the lines, and chose to do my kind of stripes instead of following the color pattern provided.  Here's mine, pre-blocking:


I love the cuff, and the yarn is great to work with.  The blocking will make it look even better - here's a link to Judy's Facebook page with blocking instructions.

I was surprised at how quickly this knit up - only took about a week!  It's like making a giant sock where you don't have to worry about Second Sock Syndrome, although you may want to make another stocking when you see how fun the pattern is.

So, want to try this yourself?  See entry instructions below to win a one-time $60 shopping spree at Judy's Colors website.  I'll pick a winner on Friday, November 30th.

I'm a newby knitter and totally excited about my new creative outlet. As large as my quilt stash is, my yarn stash is non-existent so this would be awesome. In addition, I have two of the most adorable Grandsons along with friends with some of the most adorable babies and I know they would love knitted Christmas stockings.

OOOoooo, Pretty. The yarn looks so soft. I am new to knitting. But so far, I enjoy it very much. Thanks for the opportunity. This is a great give away.
