Shameless :: pattern sale, originally uploaded by earthchick.
A year ago, I released my first set of patterns for sale (having released a few free patterns previously). At the time, it was just a pair of mitts and a hat; a month later, I added a cowl to the collection.
Now that winter is almost here again, I thought it would be fun to promote this pattern with a little sale. It’s not too late to whip up a pair of mitts, a cowl, or a hat for the holidays – for yourself or to give away!
Let me shamelessly say that I actually adore these mitts. I usually wear them as pictured above, with the cuffs rolled back (the pattern also offers an option for finishing them at this length with ribbing). When I’m driving and my fingers are cold, I unroll them and tuck my fingers inside, all nice and cozy-like.
Yes, I do sometimes match my nail polish to them.
(And yes, the Shepherd’s Wool does pill over time, but that’s to be expected with such a soft yarn. Totally worth it.)
Here’s the deal. I’ve decided it’s time for me to purchase a new spinning wheel. For one thing, I’m ready to take a step up from my first wheel, a Schacht Ladybug. Don’t get me wrong – I still ADORE this wheel. I just feel like I’m ready for a little more.
Another reason I want a new wheel is this:
That’s Little Buddha, having received his first fiber, which he picked out himself and I bought for him (Spunky Eclectic Shetland, “En Fuego”). He wants to be on my wheel all the time now, and his brother wants to learn, too. With three of us wanting to spin, we really should become a two-wheel household, shouldn’t we?
I have my eye on a very special wheel, and I’m ready to start some creative fundraising for it. This little pattern promotion is the first small step in that.
If you’ve already bought the pattern in the past, thank you! If you haven’t, now’s your chance to get 20% off – that applies to each pattern individually as well as to the whole set.
The redemption code is “shameless” and this promotion will run through the rest of the month. The redemption link is here .
Thanks for considering this, and stay tuned for more opportunities to send your money my way!
Buying a pattern would do me no good b/c I don’t know how to knit,but wow, would I love a pair of those!!
Ooooh good luck with your wheel raising! I assume this is for the Matchless? I think it’s great that your boys want to spin, I will check out the pattern collection!
