Another Counter Ring Giveaway And 50% Off A Couple Of Patterns

ring_2

I bet you were wondering what happened to the Counter Rings.

I didn’t forget about them or you. I was just waiting for the super generous guys of Critsuccess to hook up their new, knit and crochet-focused website.

The Counter Ring is now live.

I love these rings, and I still use mine whenever I have a project where I need to keep track of rows. It is always in my project bag, and I am contemplating getting a couple extra so I am never without one.

In case you are new to the Counter Ring, check out my video to see it in action.

I was given four rings from The Counter Ring company and  I have three left to giveaway.

How The Giveaway Works

I’m going to be giving away the rings over the course of the next couple months. They will be given away one at a time.

The next winner (see below how to enter) will get their choice of any of the three remaining colors seen pictured. The sizes for each color are:

Rainbow – size 9

Black – size 9

Blue – size 8

Gold – size 8

Each subsequent winner (new posts will be started for each giveaway, so be sure to subscribe to the blog if you haven’t already), will get their choice from the remaining rings.

A Little Preview…

I’m very excited for my newest (knit) pattern. It will be ready in a couple of days, but that didn’t stop the good folks of Craftsy to post it to the home page:

Who doesn’t like snowflakes?

 

It’s so humbling to have my pattern on the front page of Craftsy.

It will be available as a single pattern (with the generous 50% discount I always have with my new patterns) as well as a Craftsy kit (all the yarn needed and pattern included) using the new and yummy Sprightly Acrylic Worsted Yarn by Craftsy.

It should be up within the next few days, so if you are subscribed to my blog, I will let you know when it available. If you aren’t subscribed, you can do so below.

Enter your email address to follow this blog and receive notifications of new posts by email.

P.S. The crochet version is getting a pattern update to the new improved formatting and will be introduced on the same day (with a discount too of course).
