New pattern and blog giveaway!

I'm excited to be releasing my fourth design--the Give Thanks Mittens pattern--next week. The pattern includes instructions for four sizes: infant (which are thumbless), 1-2 years, 3-4 years, and 5-7 years. These mittens are knit in the round, by magic looping, and have a slip stitch pattern that creates a thick fabric to keep hands warm.

I'm very thankful for the knitters who helped me test knit the pattern, and I'll post more about them later on.

The pattern will be available next Tuesday, February 15th on Ravelry and in my Hyena Cart store.

But here's the fun stuff. I'd love to give away a copy of my newest pattern (either a .pdf or printed copy, your choice) along with a skein of Lamb's Pride worsted in Cranberry Swirl (color represented in the middle picture above) to one of my blog readers. Each person who leaves a comment for this post will be entered to win once. To enter more than once, you can do any of the following things:

1) Follow or subscribe to my blog. Make sure to leave another comment letting me know you've done that.
2) "Like" Pumpkin Pie Baby on Facebook and leave me another comment here letting me know you did that.
3) Comment on another blog post of mine. Then comment on this blog post about your other post. Sounds redundant, I know, but it'll help me keep your entries straight!

Please make sure in your comment that you've included a way for me to contact you if you win.

You've got until Monday, February 14th at 12PM EST to enter. When I've received all the entries, I'll enter the comment numbers into a random number generator and that person will win.

Good luck and thanks for reading!

  2. Thanks, Maureen! The post for the yarn along counts too. :) To follow my blog, click on the "Follow" button that's at the top left corner of the screen in a beige bar. At least that's what it looks like on my computer.
