It's a Giveaway :)

At last - my promised Scandinavian 'knitty' sample pieces Giveaway!  I showed a little sneaky peak of these knits a little while back - I've now got two completed sample pieces which I used to hone my colour knitting skills (using a colour-block design from 150 Scandinavian Knitting Designs by Mary Jane Mucklestone) .  It seemed a shame not to do anything with them - so why not have a little giveaway I thought :)  . . . 


I've added a chunky little zip to the two sample knits to create a very rustic purse - don't look at the hand-sewing too closely now - ooops!  (they're not lined either - VERY rustic!)  I loved doing this pattern though and while doing it I solved a little query I had with keeping the reverse floats neat and tidy, so thankyou for that, hehe!

As you  can  see there's a red and white one . . .


. . . and a black and grey one . . .


Now you must have spotted my new 'handmade by Tweed Delights' stamp - I'm so excited by my new crafty purchase LOL!  I've been wanting one of these for a long time, and finally this week I decide to go for the plunge - I love it :)  It's made by a wood mounted rubber stamp - using a traditional ink pad.  I really like how each imprint is always going to be a little different . . . 


aren't they fun?,  *sigh * - it's the little things in life that bring so much pleasure, hehe!

Anyhow, I'm giving the two little purses up for grabs in a giveaway - just state which one you would like - red or black.  Make sure you leave a contact e-mail address if you don't have a blog so I can contact you if you win.  I'll post anywhere in the world of course!

These were fun to make while I was making preps for eldest son fleeing the roost and I was very glad to have them as a little distraction amongst all the angst and chaos (my own of course!)

I'll leave the Giveaway open until next Thursday (3rd October) 12 noon.  I'll announce the winner within a couple of days of the closing date.

A little celebration giveaway to mark my return to crafting - well, why not?, it's nice to share :) :)  I'll try and pop some other little goodies in too - I must go and have a rummage for that :D

There are no terms or conditions attached to the Giveaway - just leave a comment - perhaps saying what you would use your little purse for (plus your choice of colour) and keep your fingers crossed!  See you next Thursday - in the meantime I must make some 'tweedie' goodies to attach my new labels to - must dash, byeee :)

Goodness me, count me in (for the red one, please!!!) - they're gorgeous! I crochet quite a lot but i haven't done any knitting for ages - you seem to be a born knitter :)

Lovely to have you back!

Hey ALison, I ment to comment on your post when you were knitting these. I just love them, you are such a clever thing. It's great to watch your knitting skills grow.......yes, I am jealous.....:)

I won't enter your giveaway as you have pulled my name out of the hat once before and I have some of your wonderful makes, so someone else's turn........but I have to say red wins every time for me.

Love your stamp too, have fun with it, looks very professional.
Hope all is well and you are enjoying Autumn......

The purses are so lovely that I would love to own either of them. I have a purse stuffed with allsorts but one little bag I use just wont fit it in, so a soft purse would just fit the bill. verampalmer@hotmail.co.uk

Alison, I love both the colours, but the black and grey would go with my winter garment accessories. I'd probably use this sweet purse for my change, or if the size is large enough my iphone.
Have a wonderful day!
