The Winner!!

November 16, 2009

As I said, the might Google defeated me and the answer is, as so many of you said, The Sign of Four. The “Rebellion of ’57” came from that book, and when examining Watson’s poketwatch as a test of his skills of observation, Holmes spoke about the habits of pawnbrokers in England. Here’s the sneak preview of the colorway:






The winner is: Sara

Congratulations! For those who didn’t win, don’t worry, this is going to be an ongoing giveaway, though there will be 2 changes. First, that the clues will be a little less obvious, and hopefully a lot more fun, and secondly that since this will be a monthy contest (running from the 1st to the 15th of each month) the giveaways will only be for 1 month of the subscription.


New Giveaway-Play Detective

November 5, 2009

And now another giveaway!!

Yes, yes, I know I just finished one, but it was so much fun, that I had to do another right away. Speaking of that giveaway, I have heard from both Diane and Darcy, and their winnings should be in the mail tomorrow. 

Anyways, this new giveaway goes hand-in-hand with the updates I just made to my etsy shop. I just posted the Sherlock Holmes Clubs. There is the knitting not-just-sock club, the crochet not-just-sock club, the knitting sample club and the crochet sample club.

I love sock clubs and yarn clubs, but I noticed a few general problems:

1. They get really expensive; so I came up with a sample club. Big enough to enjoy new yarn each month, and create a small project out of it, but it won’t break the bank.

2. I like to make socks, but not only socks; so I made my clubs not-just-sock clubs, with projects made from sock yarn so if you choose you can create only socks, but there are options.

3. I haven’t seen a crochet sock club. Not to say that they don’t exist (I do not claim omniscience – if you know of one please, please, please let me know!!) So along with my knitting not-just-sock, and sample clubs, I have crochet clubs at the same price with the same theme, and same yarn. Only difference is the pattern, (and there may be a few less socks in the general scheme of things.)

The giveaway rules:

Play Detective!

December’s Shipment is based on a particular Holmes story, and I will drop hints here and there throughout the next week or so, and you, my fine readers can guess which story this month will be based on.

If you’re not a Holmes fanatic like myself, don’t worry. This works off of participation, not accuracy. Hazard a guess on which Holmes story it is, and your name will be in the drawing to win a 3 month subscription of the club of your choice. (I’m thinking one of the not-just-sock clubs, but if you would rather a sample club, that’s fine with me.)  The hints will also go from very vague to more concrete each time.

Hint #1- This story featured the “Rebellion of ’57”

Edit: Thank you Ikkinlala! Yep, please leave your guess comments on this post, though commenting on any post with a guess is valid.
