Countdown to Christmas – Day 2 (Giveaway!)

So many things going on today! First of all…. the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway!


We (me, Susan and Melissa) are giving away this gorgeous, hand knit shawl. How can you be entered into our drawing? Well, there are a number of ways –

  • Leave a comment on this post for 1 entry
  • Make a purchase from the Cotton Spice ePattern Shop for 5 entries
  • Put our graphic on your blog for another 5 entries (email me with the location) Graphic found at end of post.
  • Our Giveaway will be open until Dec 6! There will be a new post everyday with the new ePattern on sale that day. If you comment on each days post…. You’ll receive another 25 entries! Awesome!
  • And…if you purchase the PDF Pattern featured each day…. are you ready? 100 entries! (Dec 2-6)
  • Be sure to leave your name and email address when you comment. The email address isn’t shown to the public, but if I have no way of contacting you when you win, I have to go to the next person and that would be really sad for you- I don’t like sad people here at Cotton Spice, especially when I’m the one who made them sad!
  • And finally, for another 5 entries, subscribe to the Cotton Spice Blog – over there on the right at the top where it says Subscribe to the Cotton Spice blog….

So, what about this shawl? It’s made from 100% merino wool, lace wt yarn. It’s super soft and cuddly. It may not look like it has lots of warmth… but it does. The wool is warm and the little holes in the lace trap the warm air and keep it so that you can be warm! I made this shawl during the Summer Squares Suite featured on BadCatDesigns blog this last summer. It’s just about 32″ square.

And here is the pattern that is on sale today….


A beautiful lace shawl from Bridgett at Rambling Designs. Gorgeous!
