LOVE giveaway #2: ribband in ruby

 It had been far too long since I hosted a giveaway... so for my Valentine to all of you, I've organized a week long celebration of gift giving from some of my favorite people. Their offerings are varied and wonderful, and I'm so happy that they've asked me to share them with YOU!
May I present LOVE giveaway #2: The Ribband Kit in ruby for heart day.


 Ribband is a versatile knitted jewelry piece: it is a 32 inch long beaded strand that can be worn as both a multi-looped bracelet or a necklace. Based on 4 stitches of knitting this is knitted beaded jewelry at it’s easiest!

My dear (dearest) friend Laura of Nelkin Designs is so GOOD, but especially when it comes to yarn and beads. She's lovingly offering this kit to one of you. If you're a knitter it should be a breeze... if not, I bet you know someone who could whip it up for you.


MATERIALS Included in Kit

16 yds Alpaca with A Twist Fino in Ruby
(Fino is a 70% alpaca/ 30% silk lace weight yarn)
Hook and Eye Clasp
390 Size 8 Glass Beads
64 4mm Czech Crystal Beads
Dental Floss threader for threading the beads onto the yarn
Ribband pattern which is necessary for working with this kit.

The kit is packaged in a perfectly sized organza drawstring pouch that can be used as gift packaging once you finish your necklace!

To enter in the giveaway, leave your name and a way to reach you in this post before 2/22 at 8pm EST. The winner will be randomly selected and announced on 2/23.

  49. Quality guarantee without pinching much to pocket.. This belief is reflected in its offerings, and laptops are the prefect examples of them. Different from the rest in the rest, a winner on its own; it’s HP hot stuffs that glitter the link at www.rightshopping.in/g/itb.asp?C=HP-Laptop&b=HP&cid=3 all the way.
