100th Post Giveaway!

To celebrate my 100th blog post (which was actually a few days ago, but let's just pretend it's today!) I present to you my very first giveaway! I've decided to offer some options, as I am fond of so many of my creations.

This is giveaway to celebrate the mamas, sisters, daughters, grannies, nannies, and girls out there: the "gift" is a wonderful, unique knitted hat!

Because you are unique and have a superb sense of style, I offer two choices:

The Rosie Posie hat, made in an adult size...I can also make a smaller rose, in the same colour as the hat, omit the leaves, add a "posie" (a small grouping of roses), or any variation on the theme that you wish! I can also offer a variety of base colours.

Okay, this is a picture I borrowed from Ravelry, so it's a bit fuzzy; I've made several of these hats but have no photos to show the great detail of that moss-stitch band and oversized button! Not the best pic (and the model is nowhere NEAR as cute as the one at the top ~ haha!), but a fair representation of the "Robin's Egg Blue hat" that is being offered as an option in this giveaway. Again, the colour choice is yours.

This giveaway is open to everyone! If you are just stopping by but are not a Follower, please comment only once under this post. Followers have an advantage: you can enter a comment under this post every day until the contest closes. (*if you really want to win, it's easy to become a Follower: just click the button on the right that says "Follow"!) I encourage you to pass details of this giveaway on to others. Let the games begin!

The winner will be chosen randomly on Friday, July 23, and announced the same day! We'll exchange emails, to discuss the details: sizing, colour choices, and where to send it.

I will happily ship to anyone, anywhere in the world! Best of luck!

  2. Dang! I thought I'd be the first one to comment! Oh well, my competitive side has been rubbed and so I intend to leave 100 messages if I have to! Would love either the rosy posy hat for Jaime or the robin egg hat for me. Congrats on 100 posts! You're awesome! You're part of my daily reads and I love every sentence of it.

  4. I have tried to leave posts before, but I can never quite get them up. I think it's my profile. But here we go again.

    I am a friend of Lana's, and she introduced me to your blog when you first started. Your stories always hit home with me, as I have two young girls and when you write, it feels as though it's a bit of my story, too.

    Congrats on the award, your fantastic blog and your lovely family!

  24. Dear Steph your hat is really sweet
    To win it would be rather neat
    My rhyming couplets might be lame
    And they will never bring me fame...but
    I hope my little poem wins the prize
    I think it would be just my size!

  25. It's me again. Totally serious about entering every day. It does get cold enough here in the desert to warrant one of your lovely hats!

  36. That Stephanie G is gonna be a hard one to beat, she's serious competition!
    So do you accept bribes? Perhaps a Charlie and Lola tin with some English/Irish goodies in it......What do you mean cheating? I'm only trying to barter!!
    P.S. Even if I don't win I shall send the tin, it's very cute xx
