The world is filled with wonderful and inspiring people.
I am lucky to have met somebody like that.
..and now I want to introduce you to her.
Here's my story and I am sticking to it.
Girl walks into Station 8 ,
looks at my yarn
and tells Collette
"my sister is an amazing knitter - I'll give her one of Magnolia's cards"
Few days later girls sister "Liat" connects with me on ETSY.
I find out she is AMAZING knitter.
Liat has taught thousands of people to knit and has even been on TV!
and to top it off she is the nicest person.
We talked some more
I send here some yarn.
and she designs this beautiful lace cowl
~ Aspen Ice ~
Now go read here blog and come back here.
Did you read that?
Is she awesome or what?!
A beautiful pattern...and free- yey!
I knit one up too.
I used a little more than one skein and added a few more inches.
The drape is really lovely
I think the stiches she chose really works so well with Magnolia yarn that is bulky
it lightens it up a bit.
When I finished the cowl
Jules said why don't you make a hat to go with it?
Used the same type of stitch as Liat did
added a pompom and voila!
(Don't ask me about the hat pattern I just winged it.)
SO here's the scoop,
Since Liat was so generous....
it's high time for a GIVE AWAY at Magnolia
I am giving the set away.
The beautiful Aspen Ice lace Cowl and the Vail Snowflake Hat.
Hah...there is a catch.
I am asking that you
fork over a creative and original name that I can use for a Magnolia Yarn.
You can enter as many times as you wish.
The Gabenator will pick a name/winner.
I'll announce a winner next week.
