October Giveaway #2 - Julia Yarn and My Book Kristin Knits via Knitch Magazine

Wow, one contest isn't finished yet here and I'm already announcing another one. A busy October here at the farm and on the blog! October Giveaway #2 is really great. It is being sponsored by the fine folks at Knitch Magazine,, Nashua Handknits and ME!

Here's what you can win this time:
12 skeins of Julia Yarn (any of the colors that stocks)
An autographed copy of my book "Kristin Knits"

This prize is worth over $115! As The Farmer says "SWEET!" Can you imagine him saying that? Julia and I are still laughing at him - He learned it from his young, hip friends at the Farmers Markets.

Today's prize is rather easy. But there is a question you have to answer.
  1. First off, read the article by Deb Knight about her trip to the "Get Stitched on the Farm" classes that she attended this past summer. Deb chronicles her visit to the farm and her entire farm experience here. She is the editor of the on-line knitting and crochet Knitch Magazine!
  2. Check out the Julia page on the site and COUNT the number of Julia colors. Here is the link.
  3. Send an e-mail to
In the subject line, type Julia Yarn Contest
In the body of the e-mail, give the number of colors of Julia that YarnMarket shows on their Julia page.

The winner will receive an autographed copy of Kristin Knits and 12 skeins of Julia Yarn (colors of your choice).

The contest ends Midnight October 31, 2010. A random drawing from all the correct answers will take place on November 3, 2010 and the winner will be announced on the blog Shear Bagatelle. (I'll let you know who wins here too!)

p.s. How do you like the new photo of my Julia Yarn in the egg cartons? I'm working on a postcard to give away at Stitches in Hartford in a couple weeks. What do you think?

p.p.s. If you have trouble getting to the Julia Yarn Page and you have already read the article, the answer is 33 colors of Julia Yarn.

I count 34 as well since Bright Blue is shown as an example but not listed amongst the colors. Thanks for the link to Knitch Magazine. I hadn't discovered it yet.

I counted 34 colors too... The Bright Blue in the upper left of the page is too lovely to leave out, right?

The egg carton photo is beautiful. I will repeat my humble request that some day you put some of your yarn photos on foldover note cards as well as postcards!
