Knitterly News Special Issue #125
October 15, 2011
Taking the art of knitting beyond the ordinary —
From the classic to the uniquely appealing

Hi knitting friends,

And the winner of the Schaefer Yarn is … (also check out the special coupon offer below)

I had good news to start off the weekend for the lucky winner of the random drawing of Schaefer yarn that I wrote about in last week's newsletter. Rose is the winner and her prize skein of Schaefer Anne yarn is already on its way to her.

I hope you had as much fun with this as I did. I loved reading your ideas and suggestions about which HeartStrings pattern you like best that could be made in this yarn. It was really amazing all the variety of answers. If you posted on the Jackie E-S blog and/or Facebook early in the week and did not see the comments later in the week, take a browse through for additional ideas that you might not yourself have first considered.

As a thank you to everyone, originally I was planning to do a special coupon offer for the pattern mentioned in the winner's comment entry. Actually, Rose included the names of 2 patterns in her comment -

"Such a lovely yarn. I think it would make a perfect Lace Leaves Scarf. The colors remind me so much of taffy though that I might have to make my first ever socks with your Pulled Salt Water Taffy Socks."

Rather than using the first named pattern for the special coupon offer, I am feeling generous this lovely Saturday and I am going to do the offer for either (or both) of those patterns, or any others of your choice since there were so many good suggestions from everybody.

Here's the deal:

Use Coupon Code HSFANOCT in the
HeartStrings Store at Ravelry
and get 10% off when you purchase any two or more HeartStrings patterns.

You can use the coupon as many times as you want, but it does expire at the end of the day October 31, 2011. Now don't wait 'til then and forget!

And it's fine to share this coupon with your friends on Ravelry, on Facebook, Tweet it, share it with your knitting groups, whatever.

I appreciate you introducing your friends to HeartStrings and spreading the word.

Thank you for being a fan of HeartStrings.
Happy knitting!
