My sister-in-law, Fay, has recently launched a craft company, Knit It Hook It Craft It and a podcast, The Crochet Circle.
Fay has a true gift for making things. Whether it is cooking beautiful food, tiling a bathroom or stitching a skirt, she achieves excellence in anything I have seen her try.
Imagine how excited I was when she turned her skills to making a shawlette/scarf inspired by In The Light of What We See!
As Fay knows I am a novice crocheter (and she wanted simple pattern that could be done while listening to an audiobook or watching television), the pattern is suitable for beginners. It has a geometric edge pattern, and I can absolutely picture Mina wearing it.
Plus, she found beautiful hand-dyed yarn (by Ripples Crafts in Scotland) in colours which match the book cover perfectly.
Yes, she’s a genius.
To celebrate my very first ‘bespoke book-inspired pattern’, I’m giving away the audiobook of In The Light of What We See, the exclusive pattern, and a skein of hand-dyed yarn (enough to make the shawlette). Just head to Twitter and RT/follow to enter!
You need to follow both my account and Fay’s – @ma_dashper and @SarahRPainter
Terms and conditions:
To enter you must follow (or already be a follower!) of both accounts and have retweeted the competition tweet.
One entry per Twitter user.
One winner will be chosen at random. The prize: one skein of yarn, the crochet pattern and one copy of the audiobook (on CD).
Giveaway is open internationally and closes at 9pm (GMT) on Friday 2oth May 2016.
