Yarn Along: Little Sheep Stitch Marker GIVEAWAY!

I'm linking up with Ginny for this week's yarn along.



Knitting: Pashmina Cowl
I've only made a little progress on the Pashmina Cowl that I was working on last week. That means I'm really going to have to ramp up my efforts if I want to finish all my Christmas gifts on time. I'm not in panic mode... yet. I know the other two cowls that I want to knit will go much faster than this one so I may be okay. I plan on making Stop, Drop and Cable and Drop Stitch cowls.

Reading: Where Yesterday Lives by Karen Kingsbury
I'm a big fan of Kingsbury audiobooks. This one has been a little hard for me to listen to right now. In the book a family is facing conflicts as they plan their dad's funeral. My grandma has been in the hospital all week so it's a little hard to think about death and dying right now. Her condition is not critical but she's in her late 80's and when someone is sick, you realize just how precious life is.


And now, how about a
GIVEAWAY!

Last week I made each of my spinning friends a little sheep stitch marker. I bought the sheep beads from the amazing polymer clay artist Tonya Ward. Aren't they adorable? (Some of the sheep were too bashful to look at the camera.)



Next I attached each stitch marker to a beautiful knit design tag that I downloaded for free from Amy Moss at www.eatdrinkchic.com.



GIVEAWAY: I am giving away one sheep stitch marker (of my choosing) to a lucky commenter. To enter, just leave a comment with a link to an item on Etsy that you hope to find under your Christmas tree. Only one comment per person, please!

A winner will be selected randomly on Monday, December 16th. Please leave a way for me to contact you.

Good luck!

Update: Elizabeth is the lucky winner! Congratulations!

the stitch marker is adorable...no, ADORABLE!!!! (I love the bashful ones!!!)
My etsy 'link' is an amazing owl yarn bowl that I coveted so long, it sold. I still have it pinned. It was out of this world expensive, but a girl can dream, right???
