Over the weekend we clocked 100,000 fans on our Facebook page! And we’re still going strong.
In the immortal, and misquoted, words of Sally Field, “You like us! You really like us!”
Of course, we’ve known all along that you like us.
We see your projects made from our yarns and patterns on Ravelry, your blogs, Flickr, and other online outlets.
The local yarn store owners we supply tell us how much your love the yarns and patterns we distribute and tell us about the great projects you make.
Still, there is something exciting about know that over 100,000 knitters and crocheters want to connect with us on Facebook. We have fun sharing our news with you and your responses often make us smile and laugh, or bring a tear to our eye.
To show our appreciation for inviting us into your news feed, the boss says we can have a giveaway! (Open to US residents, void where prohibited.)
We’ve put together a bundle of books highlighting the designers we work with.
Debbie Bliss Angel Prints features patterns using the yarn of the same name.
Elsebeth Lavold Book #25-The Past Into the Present Collection features women’s garments using her Silky Wool, Silky Wool XL, and Tweedy Wool, among others.
The Ella Rae Lace Merino Chunky book features patterns for men and women using the yarn of the same name.
The Juniper Moon Farm Herriot book features sweaters and accessories in stripes and colorwork using the yarn of the same name.
Leave a comment on this blog post between January 22, 2013 and January 24, 2013 telling us what you like about our Facebook and blogging efforts, what you want to see more of, or just a happy message about how awesome yarn is.
When the system asks you to sign in, please be sure to use your real email address that you actually check. This is the main way I’ll be contacting the winners!
The giveaway is open to US residents and is void where prohibited.
