COMPETITION: It’s a Stitch Up goodies

Posted by Deadly Knitshade on March 2, 2010

S&B London regular Suzie Blackman, of It’s a Stitch Up, is providing prizes of knitting loveliness.

Where did you get that hat? I made it.

A budding designer and Stitch Sage, Suzie is giving away five copies of her frankly fabulous new pattern, the Aduki hat. She’s also offering two prizes of special hand-dyed yarn to go with the pattern, which she has dyed especially for you… (cue Kylie and Jason!)

Aduki is a slouchy titfer using two contrasting colourways designed to brighten the greyest of winter days, and boy aren’t they grey right now!!! It’s an easy knit, suitable for anyone familiar with knit and purl. So no excuses, peeps!

Two winners will receive a grand prize of the pattern and a hat’s worth of beautiful hand-dyed wool and bamboo blend yarn – one hank in a gorgeous turquoise and the other in a rich red wine. Three runners-up will receive a free PDF pattern via email.

If you’re not one of the lucky winners, you buy can the pattern for £2.50 as a PDF download from the designer’s website or from Ravelry.

All you need to do to get your hands on the fibre-based fabulousness is join our mailing list and then email us to answer the question. We’ll throw your answers into the ethereal land of Faery where our magic, mischievous name-picking purling pixies will steal (read  as choose!) the names of five winners.

Which of these is NOT a Winter Olympic sport:
a. Short track speed skating
b. Super Giant Slalom
c. The Ultra Fast Knit combined with the Stuff Cake In Your Mouth Every Third Row

Mmm yarny...

Drop us an email at with:
  • The subject line “I’d take secret knitting enhancers in order to WIN!”
  • Answer A, B or C
  • Your full name, email address, and contact phone number (if you have one)
  • IMPORTANT: The secret mailing list joiner password (if you just joined) which is in green at the bottom right of your welcome email. If you don’t have the password you can’t enter the competition. If you’re already a member then go ahead and enter. No password needed.
The deadline for the competition is Monday 8th March at 10am. The 5 winners will be picked from all correct entries, and notified by email within 48 hours.

Please note: Offering to make us eternally young and beautiful will not help you win Suzie’s pattern and yarn. Just pick your answer, email us and we’ll let the purling pixies loose. Good luck!

Competition rules: 1. One entry per person. 2. Competition ends Monday 8th March 2010 at 10am. 4. Winners will be drawn from all correct answers, and notified within 48 hours via email. 5. If winners don’t reply with addresses within two weeks of closing date then new winners will be chosen. 5. No cash alternatives. 6. Prizes can be collected from us or will be posted to the winners.
