100th Post Pattern Giveaway!

Hello hello hello! Brrr it's a bit chilly around here. It's making me think of knitting snuggly jumpers (although the speed I knit this would probably have to be for next winter) and scarfs and hats and all other wintery goodness. I must admit that my favourite seasons are the "in between" ones - autumn and spring. I am not a bit fan of being too hot or too cold, so these fit the bill perfectly! I do like autumn - the wonderful colours, the re-emergence of hot chocolate as a suitable drink in the middle of the day, and snuggling up under a blanket in the evening knowing it's a bit chilly outside. However, the soggy days and dark evenings are less appealing aspects....but forget those for a minute....I have a giveaway to brighten things up!

Believe it or not, this is my 100th post! So a celebration of this milestone is clearly in order. Over the past year especially, my pattern collection has grown rapidly (although I imagine it is still in it's youth compared to a lot of peoples!!). However, I am rather aware of the fact that I will not ever get around to making all of them (gasp). I know i know - the intention will be there, but there is just not enough time to make EVERY pattern ever. So my solution is to weed out those I know I am least likely to make - be it because they are the wrong size (and let's face it, the less fitting the better) or because I am unsure about the style - and pass them on to other deserving bloggers so that they can be loved and used elsewhere rather than just sitting on a shelf. So, what have I got for you today? Let's have a little look....

Vogue 4108, size 14 (34 bust)

Simplicity 5386, size 14 (34 bust)

Simplicity 5086, size 18 (38 bust)

If you would like to be in with a chance of winning any of these three lovely patterns, all you have to do is be a follower of my blog and leave a comment below saying which pattern or patterns you would like to win (let's call them 1, 2 and 3 for ease!) by midnight UK time on Sunday 30th September. I'll then pick the winner of each pattern with the help of a random number generator. Simples :) Oh and I am happy to post internationally so anyone can enter!

Have a great weekend - I plan to finish my minoru I've written it down it has to be done...!!
