400 posts yarn giveaway!




Hello, hello! I recently realized that my last post was number 400. That's certainly something to celebrate! It's been a long time since I held a giveaway, so when I was at the yarn store today I picked up a few skeins to give to some lucky readers. 

I'm giving away 2 skeins of Ella Rae wool in yellow and cream, 3 skeins of Mission Falls cotton from my favorite yarn shop (now closed), and 1 skein of Noro Kureyon in blue and green hues. I want to share the yarn, so I'll be choosing three winners--one for the Ella Rae, one for Mission Falls, and one for Noro.




The nitty gritty of how to win:

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me something about yourself. Anything will do--I'm a fan of random facts. I'd love to know more about my readers. Make sure I have a way to contact you!

2. For a bonus entry, become a follower of Field Wonderful. Leave a comment letting me know you're a follower.

3. For another bonus entry, post about this giveaway on your blog and leave another comment here with the link to your blog post.

Entries from all over the world are welcome. I'm willing to ship this yarn anywhere mail will go. 

This giveaway will close on Monday, September 12, 2011 at 8 PM EST. I'll put the names in a lovely vintage tin and draw for the Ella Rae and Mission Falls. The Noro is my favorite, so I'll choose my five favorite comments and hold a special drawing for it. 

The giveaway is closed. I'll announce the winners in a new post soon.

Good luck to you and thank you so much for reading Field Wonderful!

  1. ooooh! I love every single skein, the cotton looks especially scrumptious!

    something about me: I fall in love with random words and then use them to death! Scrumptious is the word today, I've used it about 20 times already, it's such a good word :)

    thanks for this chance to win!

  12. I normally say that my random fact is that I'm a knitter but since you already know that I guess it won't work here. I guess I could share that I talk for my dogs, as though they were the ones actually talking. They each have distinct voices to match their personalities and since Timber was originally from Minnesota he had an accent for a while when we first got him.

  22. My name is Sam. I followed a link from Rainbow Bunting. A random fact about myself is that I love breakfast food. I could eat it at any time during the day. Cereal, cream of wheat, french toast, pancakes, bagels, you name it and I love it. The only stuff that I'm not crazy about is probably egg dishes.

  28. What a great giveaway! Thanks for the chance to win!

    Random fact about me. I've been searching for months and months to figure out a crochet stitch that my husband's great-grandmother had used for MANY afghans she created. I have finally figured it out, and I am almost finished making a baby blanket for my sister-in-law and niece-to-be using that stitch. It will be a tribute to her from her great-great-grandmother's incredible crocheting legacy. I hope they like it!

  39. Let's see.... I am recently married and loving life with John to the fullest. I have been an avid crocheter ever since I taught myself the art at the age of 11. I also have a blog and love to think of it as an outlet for me to focus on the positive, honor God, and bless my family. It was nice getting to know your blog today. I am always on the look out for more crochet blogs to add to my roll. Yours is wonderful!

  43. Something about myself...when I was about 9-10 I wrote and orchestrated a play in which my 7-8 yr old cousin walked out into the livingroom at my g'parents stating, "Oh, I'm just a streetwalker. Just a streetwalker." Of course, the parents in the room and my grandparents threw a fit...and I never admitted to them that I was the one who told her to say that.

  44. What a sweetie you are! And so generous too. Hmmm, random fact about me....As much as I love to look at a pretty garden, I hate doing the actual work. I always feel like it's a chore hanging over my head -- you know I'd rather be crocheting!
