August 17, 2012 in Ella Rae
Leanne Prouse is the creative force behind the Ella Rae line of yarns and patterns.
She says she learned to knit at an early age from her mom, but didn’t purse it as a past time until she was a teenager. Instead she would find patterns she liked and get her mom to make them for her! (This makes me laugh because that’s what I do with sewing projects.)
Leanne studied Fashion Design and Textiles in college and eventually got a job as a designer with Jo Sharp.
She branched out on her own in 2004 and since that time has designed beautiful patterns for the whole family as well as home decor items.
Pattern Treasure Hunt
For this week’s Treasure Hunt giveaway there are four patterns for you to find. (void where prohibit. US residents only.)
- Garter Stitch Throw
- Felted Persian Slippers
- Marian cardigan
- Bolero top
Look through the Ella Rae books on our website, find each pattern, and leave a comment with the name of the book each pattern is in.
For example: If “Isla” was one of the pattens you would comment: “Isla, Amity Book 117” (but you don’t have to put the link). See, simple!
10 people who find at least one pattern will each receive one ball of Ella Rae Classic Wool.
One person who finds all 4 patterns will get 10 balls of Classic Wool.
When you have to sign into the system to leave a comment make sure you use your real email address so I can contact you if you win.
I don’t want to make it too easy for you because then it won’t be fun, but I have tried to give you little hints so you can be sure you found the correct patterns.
You have from now until Sunday night to guess. Winners will be selected and announced on Monday (Aug. 20).
