Time to draw for the prizes for the Kung Fu Knits pre-launch giveaway! Huge thanks to all of you who participated by posting the gorgeous—and sometimes hilarious—photos of kids wearing your hand-knitted and -crocheted items. (Most of the posts appear in the Dark Matter Knits group on Ravelry; click the link if you want to check out all the smiles and occasional screaming, heh heh.)
From the 92 entries on Ravelry, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, here are our winners!
The grand prize (signed, printed copy of Kung Fu Knits + four skeins of Berroco Vintage to start knitting with) goes to strid8! Congratulations, Astrid, and yes, we’ll totally accept a photograph of your cats in a felted basket since you were away from your home computer. 🙂
The three digital copies of Kung Fu Knits go to EmilyMarianne, MiaParanoia, and ValSue! I’ll gift you those books right now on Ravelry. EmilyMarianne has the most colorfully and sweetly cocooned baby in the entire world. MiaParanoia put up a gorgeous, studio-quality shot of her little spot in a very beachy outfit. ValSue’s little cherub is wearing a gorgeous Selkie hat designed by Wooly Wormhead.
The fabulous ninja project bag goes to dragonracer3, and the equally fabulous set of five ninja stitch markers goes to Angeiship. Angeiship’s photo shows a darling little girl whose head is being consumed by what appears to be a Dead or Alive Fish Hat. Dragonracer3’s little bean has a wonderfully surprised expression to match his yellow smiley face hat.
Congratulations to all the winners. I wish I could have shared a prize with every one of you. If you did win a prize that needs to be mailed (that is, anything besides the digital copies of the book), please email me at darkmatterknits AT gmail DOT com with your full name and address. (Astrid, it may take me a couple of weeks to get you your prize, as the paperback copies are still being printed.)
