First, thank you so much for all of your thoughtful, well written, constructive, positive comments! I know it was no small feat to take the time to provide the quality feedback that you all did, so it is much appreciated! There were also a few new-to-us blogs mentioned, so I am really excited to add them to my reader!
It is really nice to hear that so many of you love the tips + tricks and polyvore features. As luck would have it, they take me* the most time to produce, but I really love doing both, so it is nice to know they are appreciated.
For those of you who do enjoy the Tips + Tricks, tomorrow we're release a free crochet pattern and then on Wednesday, there will be a detailed tutorial to go along with it.
As promised, below are the randomly selected winners!
1. Winner of A copy of every Kelbourne Woolens book: Little Things, Weekenders, Tundra: Elements, The Baby Collection, and Volume 1 is:
# 46 Tyna: "I check Fringe Supply every morning. I like Fringe because her blog is updated so often and very 'picture dense'. The blog that holds my interest the longest are those that have sharp clear pictures and give concise useful information on knitting or upcoming events in the world of fiber. I quickly tune out when it becomes a diary of what the writer ate or pictures of baby's last birthday. I also like info on what to wear with all these beautiful knits you design and painstakingly create, sometimes mine just end up in the closet. Thank you! T."
2. Winner of A Crafter's Supply Pack, Knit Check, and KW Project Bag is:
# 39: Aracelis: "My favorite blog is Joy the Baker. I love her recipes but am in love with the stories she tells from these recipes. Reminds me that everyone is relatable through food and that not everyone's story is how we might imagine to be. I am fairly new to this blog but am loving it. I love the feminitity and ease of the blog. Very lovely!"
3. Winner of 3 skeins of yarn of your choice is:
# 13: Karen B: "My fav blog is Fringe Association - because it is a blend of fashion inspiration, how to and news about products/yarn from a user (who, granted is a seller). On your blog, I'd love to see how your yarns can be used - both in your patterns and beyond - perhaps a bit more fashion related (how do your patterns work w the trends?) I really enjoy your tutorials and I love reading about the characteristics of yarns.
Congrats to the winners! Email is at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address so we can get your prizes to you! Thanks again to everyone who commented, and we can't wait to share with you all of the wonderful content we have in the works for 2015.
