Giveaway time!

If you read my last post, you'll know that I promised a fab prize giveaway thanks to the lovely people at Fairy. And here it is - just the thing to cheer up an otherwise boring Monday...

Fairy Non Bio has won Gold in the Best Baby Friendly Detergent category and Fairy Fabric Softener has also won Silver in the Best Baby Friendly Fabric Conditioner category at the Practical Parenting Awards 2010.

To celebrate, Fairy would like to offer a month’s supply of Fairy Non Bio and Fairy Fabric Softener as well as £50 worth of Mothercare vouchers to one lucky reader of my blog, along with a month’s supply of Fairy Non Bio and Fairy Fabric Softener for one runner up as well. Caring for your baby’s clothes by washing them with Fairy leaves you assured that they will be soft and gentle next to your baby’s delicate skin.

To be in with a chance of winning one of these two fabulous freebies, simply leave a comment at the bottom of this blog post and I'll randomly select a winner and announce back next Monday. Good luck everyone!

In other news, I have been poorly (boooooo) but now I'm better I have been knitting like crazy to try and catch up on my Christmas gifts. I have just finished the first of the most lush-feeling wrist warmers ever, knit using RYC Cashsoft DK and this Ravelry pattern. I'm so gutted I have to give them away, but as soon as all my gifts are done I'll be using the grey version of this lovely yarn that I have ordered and as long as it's in stock and reaches my letterbox I'll soon be knitting my own pair. For me. Just me. All mine. Mwah-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.

They feel sooooo soft on my skin, I really want to keep them (but won't as they are for my lovely sister-in-law). 

That reminds me, 'me' left a comment on a recent post to ask where she could find the pattern for these mitts I recently completed.

The pattern is called 'Ritzy Stable Mitts' and can be found on Ravelry here. Hope that helps! I will try and remember to link back to patterns every time from now on, sorry!

Right, off to knit another mitt, be right back soon and don't forget to enter that giveaway - you have to be in it to win it!

I love your knitting, I wish I had the patience, when I go on maternity leave I think I will give it a go. I really enjoy reading your blog, I am creative but usually struggle to find the time for projects like these. I look forward to your future posts.
Please enter me for the prize draw. xx
