Hello there! Happy Sunday to you all. This week I have a wonderful treat for you, I am announcing the winner of our Sock Series give-away and bonus we have a new one!
I was contacted by the lovely Morgan from We Are Knitters asking if I would be interested in trying out one of their kits and...offering up a kit for one lucky reader. Hard to turn that down especially after visiting their website and seeing all the gorgeous yarns and projects they have. How about if we get to know a bit about We Are Yarn first?
"We Are Knitters was founded in 2011 after co-founders Pepita Marin and Alberto Bravo returned to Spain from their travels in the US. Whilst in New York they noticed several young, fashionable people knitting in trendy cafes and questioned why they had never seen such groups doing the same in their hometown Madrid. Inspired by what they saw, Pepita and Alberto started knitting themselves, and after experiencing first hand the many associated benefits of the craft they set out to recover and rejuvenate what they felt were becoming dying arts in Europe, and alas WAK was born."
"We feel as though WAK is working to help create and support a “knitting renaissance”, whereby the image of knitting is reinvented in a way that allows it to adapt and flourish in a world becoming increasingly digital. WAK does this by fostering a rapidly growing and worldwide community of knitters, makers, and friends through social media, events, and a product that appeals to a young and modern audience."
If ever there was insta-love in yarn and a project this would be one of those times. The wool is like knitting with a cloud which will become a bigger cloud that you can cuddle under when finished. Doesn't get more amazing than that, right?

The kit I received for review was for the Udon blanket. The kit includes:
- five 200 gram balls of Peruvian Highland wool
- the pattern
- size 15 knitting needles
- darning needle
- a sweet label
All the kits are put together so thoughtfully, all you need is to have a love of beautiful yarn and enjoyable projects and you are golden!

Now it is time to announce the winner from our Sock Series Giveaway! Random number generator has spoken and the winner is....
I enjoy sock knitting because I'm never bored. Knit a cuff, then the leg. About the time I'm tired of the leg, I turn the heel and pick up gusset stitches. Then I'm ready for a little social knitting on the foot. Before I know it, I'm decreasing to make a toe. The variety in yarn and patterns seems almost infinite - never boring. And more . . .
Thanks for the giveaway. It is very generous.
Thank you for all who entered and sharing your love of sock knitting! Jane, I will be in contact with you shortly.
Till next Sunday, may you all have the best day today!
