Hey everyone, the Phat Fiber people are giving away a set of my stitch markers on their blog! Click here (or on the image below) to win a free set of Exchanging Fire’s Golden Apples stitch markers from the May Phat Fiber Sampler box!
This story is based on the myth of Atalanta, who outran all of her suitors except for Hippomenes, who used Aphrodite’s three golden apples to distract her in their race. You’ll get a double-dose of the three golden apples, made out of gorgeous Preciosa Czech stardust pressed glass beads, Indian gold leaves and vintage findings.
Remember, if you purchased anything from me this month and you are a member of the Phat Fiber group (or you become a member…hint) then you could be eligible to win this month’s Phat Incentive, which include the contents of the May Video (aka The Superbox) AND A CHARKHA WHEEL, INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO AND COTTON FIBER to a randomly drawn poster in this thread. This is retroactive from MAY 1st and goes until MAY 31st!
So during TNNA this January I met Lisa Bogart, who is the author of Knit with Love. She saw me wearing my Mini Mania Scarf and sort of pointed at me and said, “The Scarf! I get to meet The Scarf!” Yes, she had recognized The Scarf from Ravelry, and was thrilled to see it in person. I was just thrilled she knew what the heck it was! I felt a little famous, I must confess. She very kindly signed one of her books for me and then we concocted a plan…a grand plan! And that plan was for me to participate in one of her monthly giveaways on her website.
So I’m very pleased to announce that this month, March, you can enter to win a BRAND NEW set of stitch markers that I have released especially for the occasion! They are called Orange Blossom Special, and are an ode to the fabulous bluegrass folk song of the same name. Funnily enough, they also happen to be the Pantone color of the year, which is Tangerine Tango. Ha! Anyways, I just love oranges, which in ancient times were called “golden apples” by Europeans because they were so joyfully bright and lush and delicious. There’s some magical about them, and I hope you enjoy their juicy delight as much as I do.
And, not only could you win a these fabulous stitchmarkers, but if you head over to Lisa’s giveaway page you’ll also find a SUPER SPECIAL discount code for 10% off anything in my shop! This only lasts until the end of March, so you’ll want to hop to it!
