Free Stuff Friday!!

Happy Friday all! We’ve got another fun giveaway for you this week. One lucky winner will receive this Yarn Valet Yarn Bowl!

You’ll love your light weight, stylish, yet unbreakable Yarn Valet Yarn Bowl. The rubberized ring keeps the bowl from slipping while the yarn flows through the scalloped yarn director. Or use the skein hole for your larger fibers and skeins. Keeps your yarn clean and contained while maintaining the beautiful ply twist while you work. Our favorite part is the portability; you can pop these into your bag and head to a favorite coffee shop or knit night. Bowl measures approximately 6 inch wide.

Every Friday we’ll post a giveaway on Think Crafts and all you have to do is comment on the blog post answering the question of the week. We’ll pick the winners and contact them via email. Deadline is midnight tonight and the winner will be announced on Monday. One entry per person please.

Question of the week:  What was the best thing that happened to you this week?

You know the drill – old and tired but perfect for the kids doing arts and crafts or slopping food all over them while being daft at dinner. My daughter is almost 8 and so I am getting to the point where I would like my home to look less like a creche and have nice things again.
