My Creative Space

I'm celebrating today with a give away!!!!!! This week I completed my super cool hot-water bottle cover......oh.......you know how I love my personal things to "POP". When I started this project I had a suspicion that ample wool was available, so I blended in the red hoping that I would have some to give away.....and it worked!



So.......this week you have the chance to win this...............one and a half skein's of Leah's beautiful hand dyed wool!......Yeah!!!!.....There should be enough for a small project like a hot-water bottle cover or kids beanie. Just leave a comment and I will draw a name Wednesday next week. enjoy!!!!



Please note in real life the colors are more blue/green shades.

For more creative spaces fun pop over to Kootoyoo.

i've been wanting to make a hot waterbottle cover for ages - yours is lovely! there's nothing like hand-dyed yarn to inspire a new knitting project.

Guest said...

I have just returned to knitting again and this wool colour is inspiring and would be lovely to add to my collection and knit my own hot water bottle cover. Love my hot water bottle in winter. Good to see a great Aussie blog and I found you through SouleMama.
