Let’s Try That Again

August 2, 2009

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

Well, unfortunately for the first winner of the giveaway the deadline has expired and I need to select a new winner. And without further ado…the winner the second time around entered the following comment:

July 27, 2009 at 1:22 pm Andrea says:

I love a giveaway and have desperately wanted to try this yarn. I’m Selkie on Ravelry…

Yay, Andrea!! Congratulations. Now, Andrea you have two days to contact me. My email is always on the sidebar under, “Contact Susan.” That means if I don’t hear from you by the end of Tuesday I will select a new winner on Wednesday. Hopefully Selkie you will see this!! Pssst…if you know Andrea tell her she won.

On to some other news now, look here for a fantastic version of the Hoot Hat. Loop is a great stockist if you have any Spud & Chloë needs and Craig is working up a bunch of the patterns. I will write about this hat in more detail a little later.

You know, if any of the other Spud & Chloë designers out there have behind the scenes sketches, photos of the work in progress or fun background information about their design(s) for the first collection of patterns, please let me know and I’d love to post about it here. I love that type of background information, that’s the best. It kind of gives you a different perspective on the finished pattern, I think.

Oh, and I have one more wonderful thing to share, well, two wonderful things. Alana of the Never Not Knitting podcast did a fun review of Spud & Chloë on her latest episode #21. Take a listen if you have a chance! The other thing is that she has come up with a beautiful little sweater out of our Sweater named Chloë. It is really cute and you would have enough yarn to knit up a Cupcake or a Watermelon Hat on the side with some of your left overs. Plus Alana is a watermelon lover just like me! Gotta like that. Pop on over to check out her blog and podcast and Spud & Chloë pattern, you won’t regret it.

I’m crossing my fingers for Andrea, winner #2. I’ll keep you all posted.

I just remembered another fun thing I forgot to mention earlier. I did an interview on the fantastic podcast called, Ready, Set, Knit! The hosts are Steve and Kathy Elkins of Webs. It is interview #138. I talked about how I got involved with the Spud & Chloë line and then I spill some secrets about the naming of Spud & Chloë. You can upload it to your ipod or whatever you use or you can listen right on your computer. Jump over to take a listen if you are interested!
