â€¢ A Swallowtail Shawl knit in Louisa Harding Cinnabar yarn.
â€¢ Your choice of one of these three signed, limited-edition prints by Melissa West.
â€¢ Two skeins of Socks that Rock in the Undertoe colorway. (Generously donated by my friend Chris.)
â€¢ A full bag of Southwest Trading Company Twize (100% bamboo) in the Twack colorway.
â€¢ A full bag of clover green thick-and-thin cotton.
â€¢ Seven hand-knit dishclothsâ€”one for each day of the week!
â€¢ A copy of the original Sensational Knitted Socks.
â€¢ A short-attention-span knitting gift pack, including abridged versions of Knitting for Dummies and Cocktails for Dummies, along with a knitted applique kit.
And perhaps more… stay tuned!
â€¢ For every $2 you donate to one of the above groups (or your local equivalent), you’ll get an entry in the raffle. Note that this is for new donations onlyâ€”I’m trying to encourage all of us to give just a little bit more than we usually do. To let me know about your donation, leave a comment on this blog or email me at shATwhatifknitsDOTcom. I will send you an email to acknowledge your entry, so if you don’t hear back from me, feel free to write again and check up.
â€¢ If you post about this raffle on your blog and include a link, let me know. I’ll put your name into the hat an extra three times.
â€¢ The prize draw itself will take place on Friday, February 22. (I was originally aiming for Valentine’s Day, but wanted the extra week to get the word out.)
â€¢ Each person will be eligible to win a maximum of one prize (we’ll draw for the biggest ones first). That way, more people will have a shot at winning something.
â€¢ Once we’ve drawn the winners, I’ll post that information on my blog and contact these folks individually via email to arrange mailing.
