A cable mug made by Susanne James and a skein of your choice of silk lace or merino sock…choose a colour from our current stock.
I love how Susanne has carved the little stitches into the cable…
…and how the mug feels in your hand. Mugs are hard to get “just right”. Susanne’s got that down pat!
Answers to the quiz questions so far:
July 14 was the date of my first update and sale.
The Boy reskeined 16 miles (yes…I know…) of yarn last Monday…and got 2 yarn burns.
16 is the legal age to pump gas. (Hear that Mum? You made us BREAK THE LAW!)
We’ve had 8 colourways named after Muppets/Sesame Street characters: Groverkill, Self-Elmolation, That’s Not Kermit…Kermit is Dead, This is Your Brain on Cookies (though there has been HEATED debate in our household over that one. Did I mention I almost always get to win?), One! One Purple Skein! Ah ah ah, One Dragonfly Ripple for the Frog, I WANT EAT DRUMS! and Ernie Shirt. (By the way…to the person who tried to pass off the 2 different dyelots of Cookies as 2 different colourways? Nice. Try.)
And Scaredy Squirrel Makes a Friend is the book in which we learn that Scaredy knits. Scaredy is high quality literature. Go read them. Now. (But wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap first)
So the entries are piling up. And there are 2 prizes left to be revealed. We’re having too much fun, so we’ll be extending this contest for another week to August 4.
So how do you enter? Lots of ways.
1. Leave us a comment, and you get an entry (1 comment per day per person)
2. If you were the very, very first customer, you get an entry. (I know who you are, you don’t have to. )
3. Answer weird quiz questions. They will be random, both in their timing and their content. We will give entries to the first 1-5 correct answers (depending on how we feel that day…we’ll give you fair warning), either in the comments or by email. (If you leave them in the comments, quiz answers count as an entry in addition to your comment entry…are you confused yet? Good. We like you that way.)
4. Buy stuff. Heck, why not? For every $25 purchased, you get an entry.
Today’s Quiz Question:
In the interest of total obscurity…today’s question comes from knowledge we just gained from watching a documentary about St. John’s, Newfoundland…
In 1700 there were 42 houses in St. John’s. How many taverns were there?
First 3 correct answers get entries.
