A Hat Before A Pattern.....


I always like to share the dover & madden love, and this Christmas it ain't going to be any different.....I have 5 little items to giveaway to end the year off, 4 hats and 1 pair of booties and all in time before the release of my first "Knit Your Own" hat pattern.

I never ask of anything in return for entering one of my giveaways, but this time I think you need to send some Christmas love back to me, so all I ask in exchange for two entries in this competition is that you do  two of the following for your entry to be valid and then you're in.

1.Join my blog, over on the side of my page, it's easy to do.
2 Jump over to Facebook and like my page here
3. Share my blog or my giveaway post on your blog or your facebook page.

Once that's done, all you need to do is leave a comment under this post stating which 2 items that you would like using the numbers and names of the hats or booties and both entries will go into the draw for those items....Should you win, they will be knitted in your colour choice.  Australian winner(s) should have their hat or booties by Christmas (based on yarn availability), International winners I can't guarantee a Christmas delivery, but I'll do my best....remember I just knit the hats, it's up to your postal system to get them to you in time.  Fingers crossed.






































Here are the items names and numbers

1 - HATCH, Patterned pixie hat with ties, or chin strap sized for a newborn through to 36 months
2 - DOTTIE, Earflap hats with ties and coloured knitted dots, 3 months through up to 36 months
3 - PURDEY, Bonnet style patterned hat with ties, 3 months through to 30 months
4 - CLOVER, Chevron patterned earflap hat, 3 months through to 48 months
5 - BOOTIES, Newborn to 6 months or 6 months through to 12 months.


I think that is it, the competition will stay open till Sunday 9th December, and I'll draw the winners using random.org at 8pm EST time and they will be announced here, a little after closing off the competition.


** Change....I won't be using random.org I've decided....each draw will be done from a hat....well probably a pyrex dish more than likely**


Best of luck, Vicki x

  75. Enjoying the posts very much since I signed up a week ago. Never occurred to me to enter for the booties twice instead of booties and a hat till you commented on another post . Is it too late to change my mind and enter twice for the booties. They are just so fabulous!
