Double Pattern Giveaway!!

California Dreamin'

This week is going to be a busy one for me since Easter is coming up on the weekend and I have lots of baking as well as Eastery related things to get done.  I thought the blog would be on the quiet side over the next few days, so I've decided to have a giveaway!!  The theme is things that have been on my mind lately:

1. I am trying to patiently wait for the newest Jane Austen inspired knit-along to be released over in the Knitting with Jane Ravelry Group.  I'm really hoping it's based on Emma.
2. California.  Last year at this exact time I was in California for a wedding, and so I've been thinking back to that a lot this week.  I blogged about it here, here, here, and here.  Such fun times were had on that trip.  Sunshine, the ocean, great family, a wedding and yarn....what more could a girl ask for? 

So because of these two things, I've decided to giveaway a pattern of your choice from the designers Annie Riley, because she is the designer for the Knitting with Jane Group and Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting, since she is based out of California and is a favourite designer of mine.

To enter:
Leave a comment with your Ravelry ID.  I will choose two winners, one for Alana's pattern and one for Annie's pattern.  The winner will then get to choose which pattern by that designer they would like and I will gift it to your Ravelry account.

The giveaway will be open till Monday April 9th 11:59pm EST.  I will announce the winners the next day and will contact the winners by Ravelry message.

Here's a link to Alana's pattern store.

Happy Easter to you all!!
