Giveaway Day #4: Are you a Junebug?

The prizes (and a couple more packages) were just delivered to the post office, so all you winners from last week should see your goodies on the doorstep in about a week. You know what that means, don't you?

Well, it's high time for another giveaway!

The yarn for today to accompany your Mirth T-shirt and size D bamboo-handled ChiaoGoo crochet hook is Pagewood Farm Kiana, 225 yards of 100% Merino Superwash worsted-weight yarn in Plum. And for once, the color came through in the picture just about right! Kiana is a gorgeous hand painted yarn and super soft. This skein would make a nice scarf or a couple of hats.

You know the rules. Hit it!

I don't know any Junebugs personally with June 10 for a birthday, but if any of you have today as your birthday, let us know! And if so, your birthday is shared by a mix of folks: Maurice Sendak, Where the Wild Things Are illustrator; Judy Garland, traveller to Oz; Princess Madeleine of Sweden; and Hattie McDaniel of Gone With the Wind fame, just to name a few.

Now to change the subject a bit (okay a lot!), I just had to share some pics that I took yesterday when I went on a city photo journey with my daughter Natalie. I love this town--we have no shortage of the old architecture. May it never be erased!

Go find some old buildings in your town this weekend, maybe while you're knitting in public, because this is WWKIP week! Maybe I'll see you out there clicking your needles.

I'll keep the prize for today up for the weekend, y'all. Comment away!

I love pagewood farms yarn and have been wanting to try Kiana for some time. I think I would like to make a sweater out of it. Since we have the weekend I think I'll send on the link to several knitter friends.

Love those photos! I was born on June 17th and apparently, no one/nothing cool shares that day. Lame.

I liked you and Mirth on facebook, altho there are many "mirths" there. I think I got the right one. Wish I'd win something for once!

I have to say, i love that balcony, it's so pretty. It's amazing what you can see when you really look at your home town.

Also I'm GirlAnachronismE on Ravelry. And I'm a follower who "liked" you on Facebook

I'm a day late but I'd be remiss if I didn't have a shout-out for my local June 10th June Bug Myles, he just turned 24 and is living larger than life!

Ames said...

My friend just sent me a link to your blog. I would like to enter. I have an anniversary in June, does that count?;-)

Sarah said...

Beautiful yarn and my favorite color! Not a junebug myself, but I'm due with my 5th baby (and first girl) and doctor says it could be anytime now. Maybe we'll have a junebug in this family yet!
