KnitSimple Holiday 2012 Textured Pillow Shams Giveaway

Share Button

We recently received the KnitSimple Holiday 2012 issue in the store. It includes many wonderful patterns for gift-giving including several that use our very own Valley Yarns line.

Our favorite is the Textures Pillow Shams. I love the way the cables pop in Berkshire Bulky. They would look fantastic on a couch or bed and would be a perfect gift for someone spending their first holiday in a new home.

We’re giving away the yarn and needles required to make the shams as well as a copy of this magazine. Just leave a comment with your favorite way to warm up as the weather cools down. You have until Monday, October 8th at 9:00AM EDT. One winner will be chosen at random.

Check out KnitSimple Holiday 2012 and find lots of great inspiration for all of the people on your list.

    I like to toss on a great movie (or episode of Dr. Who) warm up the Apple Wine and hunker down with a knitted afghan and my current WIP. There’s nothing better than cool weather knitting! (and I can’t wait to get this copy of the magazine! I hear from all over the interwebs that it’s perfection this year)

  7. katie Says:

    Watching movies under blankets while finally knitting all of the heavy wool projects I planned through the summer when it was just too hot to get excited to start them. Those shams are beautiful!

    I’m one of those people who are perpetually cold, so even in the summer I’m wearing sweaters in the house! But in winter, our house gets pretty cool – it’s a fairly large, open floor plan ranch, and we have gas heat, and not a lot of $$$, so we keep our thermostat set pretty low. So I snuggle up in my flannel jammies, a blanket, AND a space heater when we’re relaxing at night, and jack up the electric blanket when we go to bed!

  276. habitatprincess Says:

    I curl up on the couch with the blanket I knitted to match my walls (as would both of these pillows!), and a cup of chai. Having my giant cat in my lap keeps me the warmest, but then there’s not much room for my knitting, so a snow day works out best – I can knit in the morning while I watch the snow come down and the cat is busy having play time with the dog. Then when it’s nap time, he’ll curl up on top of the knitting in my lap and we both stay toasty…

  277. MaineDruid Says:

    I have already started wearing my felted slipper socks! I think I may a couple more pairs of socks to get me through this winter–I bet it won’t be as mild as last winter.

  286. YarnArchitect Says:

    I warm up with a blanket, coffee, and a pile of magazines
