Our First Giveaway~Sugar Lane

The first week in the new shop was AMAZING! We are looking forward to our big Christmas Crawl that starts this Friday.

Today I want to introduce you to Megan the creator of Sugar Lane patterns. She has an Etsy shop called Sugar Lane and you can find her as SugarLaneKnits on Ravelry.

She offers unique and adorable hat patterns that range in sizes fm Newborn to Adult Small.

Her first foray into designing came about because she wanted to make the perfect preschool hat for her little boy. She couldn't find anything close to what she had invisioned in her mind- so she made up a pattern. Voila! The Highland Argyle hat was born. She got so many compliments and custom requests from other Mommies that she thought she would start a custom order knitting business. Then she remembered that she had 5 kids...kids who need clean laundry and like to eat and stuff. So knitting for the masses was OUT! Things just kind of evolved from the Highland Argyle hat and now she has 29 hat designs in her portfolio. She loves being an indie designer!

Today our giveaway is the Highland Argyle hat pattern and 2 skeins of Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Superwash worsted weight wool.

To enter just leave a comment below. Deadline to enter is December 1st. Winner will be announced December 2nd.
