All I want for Christmas.... Giveaway!

It has become customary to do two things on this blog at Christmas - to publish a Festive Gift Guide, and to give some lovely things away! The FGG starts next week, but I am delighted to show you the gorgeous goodies that you can win if you are randomly selected....
CftC Christmas Giveaway!!!
I know many of you spotted the colourful KnitPro Marblz - limited edition - handcrafted needles which I used to photograph the Backwards Bobble Tutorial. They are part of a stunning interchangeable set I was sent to try out and which I will be sending to one lucky reader! The collection includes eight pairs of Marblz interchangeables ranging from 3.5 to 8mm, cables, cable connectors, a needle gauge and a lovely pen.
CftC Christmas Giveaway!!!
If you are familiar with KnitPro, you'll already know the quality you can expect. These come with black cables (I think they are the same as the Karbonz cables) and can be used with all your other KnitPro accessories, which are widely available. I hadn't tried acrylic tips before, and I'd heard that acrylic can be a bit 'squeeky' but I didn't have that experience knitting cotton/acrylic yarn for the tutorial - in fact the experience was very smooth. These needles are so pretty they might make you want to cast on a project in every size... in co-ordinating colours. They sell for £79.99 in my local shop, and you can get them for £59.99 on Amazon.

Of course, if you win them, you'll want something new to knit. I've chosen my very favourite shade of the incredibly soft and squishy DK Merino from the Yarn Stories range  (pictured) and you will get 2 balls of that with your needles - I'm not telling you which colour it is as it's always nice to have a surprise - you'll have to take a look and guess. Because good things should always come in threes, you can also choose one of the patterns from my Ravelry store.

To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is to leave a comment on this post telling me what YOU most want for Christmas! Be sure to leave your Ravelry user name or email address - if you don't do this your entry will not count. The closing date is Friday 5th December - which means that the parcel has a good chance of getting to *most* places before Christmas, provided I get your address quickly. If the winner is in the Far East, Australia or New Zealand it might be a New Year Gift instead.

Good luck everyone!

  67. What I most want for Christmas, or should I say need, is a new coat where the collar actually lays flat. My poor old coat has seen better days and the collar wasn't cut correctly on the grain so always laid cattywhomper and bothered the heck out of me. The needle set is lovely, I had not seen anything like that before. My Christmas will be nice peaceful spent with lots of quality time with my sticks and string. Happy Holidays to everyone who reads my post!

All I want for christmas is to be free from all of my agonising debilitating pain without having to be totally doped up on meds...I just want to see my beautiful children being so excited with smiles from ear to ear, Being so happy with everything santa gifted them full of christmas cheer they're always so grateful for every little thing they recieve and that makes me proud but ive missed half days for years now it's my sons 7th birthday Christmas eve too so I have to take more meds to see him celebrating his special day. I miss spending the day with all my family and always end up back on my bed by 2pm not being able to cope any longer. To me nothing can come close to seeing my children happy :-) that would be my perfect present.... A set of these would be fab knitting in style. Christmas wishes everyone xx
