July 2020 Yarn Giveaway
The Entry Form can be found at the end of this page. Please scroll through the post and read the important information provided before you complete the form.

The year 2020 sure has been a tough one for all of us. One upside may be that there has been more crochet time for a lot of us.

Many of us are facing huge challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic, some of us have lost loved ones and a lot of people are facing job uncertainty post pandemic and mental health issues are a reality for many. In short, we are having a tough time! 

So, here is something to hopefully cheer you up ……

July 2020 Yarn Giveaway

Yarn, especially the really good stuff, is expensive. So, I thought I would treat at least one of you to a very special hamper.

There can only be 1 winner of the yarn hamper. However, there will be some surprise consolation prizes as well. 

The Neave Collection and ColourSpun collaborate on many of my patterns. I absolutely love Dana’s gorgeous Pure Cotton and Merino yarns. Dana has agreed to once again to partner with me and together we are offering:

 1 hamper containing 30 x 50g balls of Pure Cotton DK yarn as a giveaway 
100% Pure Cotton DK
That’s 1.5kg (53oz) of spectacular 100% cotton yarn in DK weight! 

The winner gets to choose their colours from the 400 or so options! This is the hard, but fun part – so many choices!

Dana has great ombré and colour stacks available, in addition to her exceptional range of individual colours.

Thank you Dana for sharing the cost of this great prize with me.

Thank you also to Sue and Fiona of Two Redheads Crochet. They have invited me to do a Takeover of their Facebook Group for July.

This campaign will be run through The Neave Collection, ColourSpun and Two Redheads Crochet Facebook Groups.

The draw to find the winner will take place on 30 July 2020.

The draw will be done live on The Neave Collection Facebook Group using a Random Number Generator. A time will be advised at a later stage.

    Hi hi…

    Nothing makes me more excited than yarns. Natural yarns even more so. Very few young people knit or crochet any more, but I just love it. Such a relaxing activity
