Giveaway Time!!

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

It's been awhile since I've done a giveaway. 'Tis the season for giving, so I thought now would be the perfect time to give something away!

So what will I be giving away?

Well, after your favorable response to the hat and scarf that I showed you last week, I've decided that would be a great giveaway. The best part (in my opinion) is that the winner gets to pick the color of the scarf/hat! They have to be the same color, but you can pick whatever color your heart desires. I'm kind of a yarn snob, so you'll have to pick a color offered by Malabrigo. Mine was done in Pearl, in case you were wondering.

There are a couple of ways you can enter this giveaway:
1. Leave a comment, telling me what color you would choose (click on the Malabrigo hyperlink and leave the name of the Malabrigo color).
2. Become a follower, and comment, telling me you are a follower. If you are already a follower, leave another comment letting me know you are a follower.
3. Blog about this giveaway and leave a comment with the link of your blog entry.

You have until 10 pm on Tuesday, December 22rd. I will then announce the winner on Wednesday, December 23rd.

Since the scarf & hat will be made to order, you'll probably have to wait about a month to receive it - but hopefully you'll understand since it will be made especially for you!!

PS - I have no affiliation with Malabrigo. It just happens to be one of my favorite brands of yarn!!

What a neat idea! You are such a generous person, Lisa, to do this. I know how much work goes into making these scarves.

Well, I don't know personally. Just know from seeing you do it! I am jealous of your hobby. Especially right now since I'm on break. Just one day, and I am already trying to find things to do....

I love the Periwinkle. :)

Ashley Gerner said...

Hi Lisa! I love the 158 Cognac. I'm not typically a "pink" person, but I feel like the winter months deserve more color!

I am excited to see you next week! Stay warm and enjoy the holidays!

Miss Anthrope said...

What a great idea!! I'm a follower- but instead of entering me into the give-away, how about you give tips for us wanna-be's on how to be courageous and delve into the art of knitting?

I want to knit, I want to crochet, I even want to learn to sew- but it's really intimidating! How in the world do I get started? I don't even know where I'd start in terms of.... erm, knitting needles? (I almost called them sticks, to illustrate my point...I'm ignorant!)

nory said...

So apparently I wasn't following you via Google though I thought I was!? Darn. But I am now following you!!! Hooray!

nory said...

How are we supposed to choose just ONE color we like!? I think I'd have to go with Ravelry Red. I don't own any red hats or scarves but I wish that I did! Those yarn colors are all so awesome; I can see why you like them (at least from a color standpoint, I have no idea about yarn quality!)

Chelsea said...

Coco. I have tons of scarves but NO brown. How is that even possible???

Chelsea said...

I'm a follower via Google Reader. I'm on Wordpress and Blogspot doesn't allow me to be a true follower!

Little Fish said...

Ravelry Red

Red has always been my favorite color!

Anais said...

Lisa, that is one of the coolest giveaways I've ever seen!!! So as you know, I'm a follower ;) and I would pick Pearl as well simply because there are too many color choices... I'll let you know the post where I'll mention it once it's posted!

I'maNolaGirl said...

Yay! I love these. I vote for Praline, because it's a beautiful color and a tasty treat too. I am an avid reader of your blog and a follower too!

Mandy said...

I agree with your sister, you're so generous to offer to know the winner a hat and scarf! Yet, another reason you're all sorts of awesome.

How do you pick your colors they are all so beautiful. I'm with Christine I can't pick just one

I think the Strawberry Fields, Fucsia, Sauterne, and the Azul Bolita are all beautiful. I rock me some bright colors in the dreary winter.

Amber @ A Little Pink in the Cornfields said...

I would love to be entered! What a great giveaway! I really like 510 Chapel Stone! So pretty!
I am also a follower! :)

Kelly said...

Oh beautiful! I love all the colors but I'd either pick the fucsia or continental (blue)- love them both!

Kelly said...

Also i am a follower!

Becky said...

AWESOME giveaway!!! Oooh, the yarn looks beautiful, but I'm going with Ravelry Red all the way!

Becky said...

And I am DEFINITELY a follower!

Lo said...

I was a reader follower, but now I'm an official follower.

Lo said...

I would go with 20 Cypress, 52 Paris Night, 62 Marine, or 509 Sweet Grape. Those are pretty sweet colors. How did you learn how to do hats? Is that harder than scarves?

Leakster said...

I love the "lettuce" colour! I'm a follower and love reading your blog!

Amber (Girl with the red hair) said...

Oh my goodness, Lisa. What a GREAT giveaway!!!!! You rock, lady. I would LOVE to win this, as you know it's very, very cold up here in Canada!!!!

Amber (Girl with the red hair) said...

OK, I got SOOO excited to enter that I forgot to tell you the yarn I'd pick!

I have a bit of an obsession with browns these days so I would choose #624 (Coco) as my colour!

Also, since I'm not on blogger anymore I'm not a "follower" but you are on my blogroll: http://girlwiththeredhair.com/blogroll/

And you know, I'm a faithful reader and obviously I LOVE YOU AND YOUR BLOG :D XO

Katie said...

Wow! What an amazing giveaway. And what a good idea. I love to crochet, maybe I'll have to follow suit on my blog next year (must make it ahead of time!). I love the Periwinkle or the SFO Sky. Or maybe the Red.

Hmmm. If I win then I'll pick!

Katie said...

Also, I'm a follower!
