Snood giveaway

If you read my earlier snood post, you'll know that I cunningly got my mitts on one by roping my mum in to help (well, knit the whole thing actually).  But, as other snood makers have noticed, the finished snood only requires about half the amount of wool specified in the pattern, so there was 100g of very nice wool left with my mum.  As her hopeless, non-knitting daughter had no further need of it, my lovely mum Lily quickly whipped up another one and sent it to me "in case one of your friends would like it".  Isn't she just the best?


I'm aware that half the sewing/knitting population now has a snood, thanks to Karen, but if you don't yet have one, read on.  I'm doing just as my mum suggested and offering a beautiful teal coloured, hand knitted snood to one of my readers. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post.  The giveaway is open worldwide until midnight GMT on Friday 18th November.  The winner will be chosen at random after this date and notified by e-mail.

Happy Monday everybody. x

  16. Unfortunately I have no time to make me one! I have so many fabrics and my sewing work now is a great winter coat. So I will be more than happy to have the chance to win a snood. Thanks to your mum.

  17. I have snood envy and would love one this exact colour. I'm in Canada and it's getting cold and I don't know how to knit!!

  18. OK, it's coming into summer here (south coast NSW, Australia), but believe it or not it does get cold at times - cold enough for a snood!

  19. How lovely, my mother used to knit beautiful things for me when I was younger, but due to painful hands she is unable to knit for anyone anymore. Please count me in for this snood knitted with a mother's love.
