From Our Stash to Yours: Giveaway!


Welcome to the first post in a new series we'll feature from time to time on Stumbles and Stitches: From Our Stash To Yours. This is a chance for our readers to enter into a giveaway where we feature well loved (new or gently used) things from our respective craft-item stashes. A small way for us to say "thank you" to everyone that reads and supports Stumbles and Stitches!

For this round, I have raided my knitting stash and have TWO knitting packages to give away. Here's more info:

Giveaway Number One:

- A knitting journal with enough space to record 28 knitting projects, plus a spot to write your needle inventory in the back, plus a ruler and conversion chart! I bought this book when I first started knitting, and never got around to using it. It is well constructed and would make a lovely memento for anyone that knits. And, it is out of print!


Each page has a place for a photo, a yarn sample and specific details about your project.


A skein of cotton yarn, in pink and a pair of wooden knitting needles, size 3. Not sure of the yardage on the yarn, but it is quite a bit! Tied in the original skein, no label (it is from Turkey, I received a huge bag of about a dozen skeins as a gift from my parents!)


Three back issues of Interweave Knitting Magazine (Summer, Fall and Winter 2004, no longer available through Interweave!):


Giveaway Number Two:

A copy of The Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns. This book has patterns for hats, socks, sweaters and other knitted items with sizes from baby to adult, lots of variations included! I bought this book when I first started knitting, and have referenced the patterns inside for a few projects. I'd love to pass it on to someone else!




A skein of cotton yarn in orange, with a set of size 13 wooden needles. Same as above for the pink, there's no label and there's quite a bit of yarn!


A copy of "Slave to the Needles" from 2003, this is an awesome knitting 'zine with comics, patterns and more.


To enter to win, simply leave a comment here, and let us know if you have a preference for package 1 or 2. Don't forget to provide a blog link or email address so we can contact you. For additional entries, "like" us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter , don't forget to add a comment for each of these additional entries.

Good luck and happy knitting!

The random number generator gave me number 1 and number 4! Congratulations to Yana and Lora Clare, look for an email in your inbox today!


  1. Hi ladies! I've really enjoyed visiting your blog since I discovered it last Spring, it is truly inspiring. Plus, there is the added bonus of adorable baby pictures :)

    Thanks for the fantastic giveaway, both options are great but I really like the looks of that pink yarn - so i'm gonna go with #1.

  2. i think this is a great idea! please don't enter me into this giveaway though...I'm more of a fabric gal...but just wanted to pop in and say i love your blog and being a peeping tom to your friendship! i definitely think i want to do a giveaway like this on my blog too!

  3. Is family allowed to enter the giveaway?? I hope so... I love the knitting journal, but also like the pattern book, so either package would do!! All my love to both...

  4. The pattern book is a great designers' aid! Thanks for this awesome give-away. Your blog rocks!

  5. Oh wow! Awesome giveaway! The yarn is calling my name... I just had to buy textbooks which killed all money that I could possibly spend on knitting supplies. :(

    Love the blog ladies, <3 Lora

  6. Oh p.s. I've had you "liked" on facebook for quite some time now.

    <3 Lora

  7. Oh my, so many lovelies! I'm drawn to #2.
