As a special Happy Halloween to all my readers, here are some special Halloween treats I’ve come across that are not (directly) related to yarn.

  • Taco Bell is offering a free Black Jack taco to anyone who stops by between 6pm and Midnight
  • Victorias Secret has a coupon out¬†that gives you a FREE¬†lip gloss when you go in for a FREE bra fitting before Nov 15th. Hmmm.. seems almost too good.
  • McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s and Friendly’s are all offering a Halloween coupon book for only 1$ (with multiple freebies in each book)
  • If your Sears has the new Sears Toy Shop, bring in a dressed up child and they can get a free Mattel toy. Oh, and there’s a coupon for $5-$20 off (in case the munchkin sees anything they like while there) It’s always good to get a jumpstart on the holiday shopping.
  • Send in candy wrappers with a coupon from the YoCrunch site and get a coupon for a free yogurt.
  • Here’s a scary one, you can sell Halloween candy to participating dentists, getting $1 per pound and the resulting candy overflow goes to the troops overseas. I really don’t recommend this unless the kid who’s candy is in question volunteers.

Okay, that’s it, have a great Halloween, and may you keep your sugar high all day long.

Welcome to the Weekend Deals, Steals and Giveaways

July 18, 2009

Today I had a really fun time going through and finding contests and sales. Probably because I just found out I won a $500 Visa Giftcard!!

I am so excited, even though I have to wait to get it, because the local Pennysaver (who held the contest) would like to get a photo op of me and the other winner. So…. I’m trying to design and make a lacy shrug to wear to said photo op, tentatively scheduled for this Thursday.

Unreasonable? Moi? That’s what everyone said when they found out that I design and post a new pattern every week. You know what? They are absolutely right….. However unreasonable is not the same as impossible ;).

Feeling Sheepish is giving away 2 oz of milk fiber.

Phat Fiber is hosting a couple of giveaways:
1.)plant dyed alpaca fingering weight

2.) 4oz of yearling mohair

AlpacaDirect.comis having a giveaway for anyone who participates in their community. Details Here.

The weekly giveaway: Leave a comment on my blogand make me laugh, and I‚Äôll enter you to win a Bluebird shawl pattern! Ok, even if I don‚Äôt laugh, I‚Äôll enter you. ūüôā It could be a joke, a riddle, a pun, a limerick, an observation or‚Ķsurprise me!

Don’t miss stop 5 on the KnittingQ Summer Blogcation(tm), Just answer the trivia questions for an entry for a really cool set of prizes.

Well, this isn’t a contest, but it is a chance to vote for Lazy Knits and Purls new catchphrase. Go ahead and vote, then come back and tell me. (You don’t have to choose mine- my ‘name’ was up there, I’m happy :D)

Deals: is having a Christmas in July sale; free shipping on everything until July 22 and 10-30% off select items. is having a sale so unique I have to let her describe it:

Aloha! My Etsy hearts just hit 1066, so I‚Äôm having a Norman Invasion Sale (yes, really) this weekend through the 19th: 20% off all in-stock items. Pop on over to the shop, purchase your items as usual, but when you check out, put ‚Äú1066‚ÄĚ or a passage from Chaucer or ‚ÄúWilliam the Conqueror is my homeboy‚ÄĚ or, you know, something relevant like that in your Message to Seller, and I‚Äôll send you a revised invoice through PayPal reflecting the discount.

Hmm… her products are giving me the urge to go look up a passage from Chaucer.
