Hi again, This week I thought I'd run a themed giveaway to tie in with the beautiful Mulled Wine Mitts in our December issue. (Read all about Glenna C., who designed the mitts, here.) So on Saturday afternoon I ventured into Toronto's east end to The Purple Purl to choose a skein of Malabrigo Silky Merino to give away. I came home with that lovely purple bundle that you see here. One skein of yarn is enough to make one pair of the fingerless mitts as shown in the magazine. You will not believe how soft this yarn is – I've made one pair already, as a Christmas gift, and I had to hide them from myself! For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post: Telling me what you love to knit – or what you'd like to learn to knit. It sounds silly, but you might just help me decide on the next knitting project to include in the magazine! The contest will run until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, November 15; I'll post a winner here on Monday, November 16. Good luck!
