Giveaway Update

PDX Carpet notions bag and Pima Cotton Fine

This giveaway is long past completed.  This is from 3/1/2016:   I’m working on gathering the large prize, but in the meantime, I promised to post a picture of the current smaller giveaway prize.

Sometime this weekend, I will choose a winner via random number generator for this great PDX carpet print notions bag and a skein of Cascade Ultra Pima Cotton Fine in a pretty raspberry color.

A fun tidbit about this iconic design:

The SRG team [designers of the PDX Airport carpet] wanted the carpet to be northwest to the core, so they settled on blues and greens early on in the design phase. The final pattern corresponded to Portland’s intersecting North-South runways, as seen from the control tower.

I do love the PDX carpet design!!!

Thank you for your support!

Leap Year Giveaway in my Ravelry Group


The last couple of posts have reminded me of some of my favorite projects that I’ve made that weren’t my own designs.  I love this little frog pattern, Ribbit, by Susan B. Anderson.  He was so much fun to make, and Susan’s patterns are always so well written.

Well, this little frog is my way of announcing that we are having a Leap Year giveaway in my Ravelry Group, Carol E Herman Designs.  There will be smaller random giveaways starting this week, with a larger prize when The Cafe thread reaches 5,000 posts.  Drop by, say hello, meet some new (or old) knitting friends, join us as we chat about this, that and everything!  The first giveaways will be some cute notions bags made from fabric based on the iconic PDX Carpet (link to google images for PDX Carpet).  I’ll post pictures of the actual bags and other prizes later.

I hope you will join us!
