Holiday Gift Blitz: Mr. Nubbins!

Mr. Nubbins wants to give you a hug.
It's time to start thinking about your holiday gift knitting.  I know, I know....we still haven't celebrated Halloween!  It's too soon!  Well, there's already holiday decorations at Target.  Christmas/hanukkah/kwanzaa/festivus is coming.  We can't ignore it anymore.

I've teamed up with my pal Alysson from the Sweatshop of Love to make your holiday gifting a little bit easier this year - we're giving away a FREE Mr. Nubbins pattern to one lucky crafter - just hop over to her blog for details on how to enter! If you aren't familiar with the Sweatshop of Love, you're in for a treat.  Alysson is a passionate crafter, an enthusiastic (and patient!) teacher, and a great designer, too!  Be sure to check out Holla Knits, her new e-mag that's full of fun & fashionable knits. 

So what else will I be doing to make your holidays cheerier?
  • Button Bunny Kits - I'm teaming up once more with the lovely ladies of The Wool Dispensary to give you everything you need to make some cuddly creatures of your own! 
  • Mustachio Nosewarmer Kits - what do you get someone who has it all?  I can help you answer this stumper....the odds are quite good that they don't have a mustachio nosewarmer.  Knit it for them, or give it to them and let them do all the work.  Mustachio nosewarmer kits are coming - and you may want to check back later this month for a giveaway! 
  • Sock Yarn Mini Skeins - Hexipuffers, mitered square enthusiasts....whatever your fancy, you're in for a treat.  I'm opening up my extensive sock yarn stash to create special grab bags of high-quality sock yarn mini skeins.  In the 4 years of dyeing yarn for Lorna's Laces, I've accumulated quite a bit of fancy stash!  Many of my Shepherd Sock colors are one-of-a-kinds that I dyed for myself (and I still have some limited-edition Vampire Tea Party from the inaugural Sock Summit!).  I've also got a nice selection of indie dyers as well as other brands such as Araucania, Brown Sheep, Crystal Palace, and Zauberball, to name a few!  I'm in the process of skeining, weighing, and properly labeling everything - updates to follow on this here bloggity blog!
