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.
