#adventgiveaway #madewithloops

Happy first Advent friends!

I hope you get some time today to enjoy a little slow-motion. Maybe put a few decorations up, sit by the fire sipping a nice cup of something and doing some crafting.

After the very cold weather these past few days, today is a gloomy day…perfect for staying indoors with my current project and spending some time telling you about my gifting plan for you over the next 4 Advent Sunday’s.

This year has seen some up’s and also quite a few down’s and it has been quite challenging at times. I am not one for broadcasting my personal life on social media, I don’t think it’s the right place for that. There is already so much doom and gloom being spread, so no need for me to add to that. This little space still gives me joy, and as a little thank you for all your support during this year I have decided to gift a little something every Advent Sunday.

Starting today with the latest Sticka book and some beautiful Hampshire DK yarn by the Little Grey Sheep

#adventgiveaway #madewithloops

…packed full of stories, recipes and of course fabulous patterns, this latest instalment of the Sticka book series is just the thing for keeping you company during long and dark winter evenings. I have two copies and two hanks of gorgeous Hampshire DK to give-away…

This fabulous new yarn from The Little Grey Sheep is another truly British yarn. With a passion for all things woolly the team have worked with Hampshire farmers to produce a scrumptious lofty yarn. Utilising their own fine wool shorter fibres, along with some of their neighbours, this woollen spun yarn has real heritage. Sheared by Susie and selected for softness and colour, washed and spun in Yorkshire, and still hand dyed by Emma back at The Little Grey Sheep HQ, Hampshire DK showcases all the best of British.

Each hank is 100g – 230m and uses 4-5mm needles

If you would like to win one of these, here is what you need to do:

  • subscribe to Made with Loops Newsletter
  • tell me what you would make with the yarn if you should win
  • let me know which colour you would prefer to win

This give-away is open to UK and European readers only due to postage costs (I know you will understand), and the winner will be drawn next Sunday when the new give-away will be announced.

Good luck to you all!

    How lovely! I’m enjoying catching up with your posts. I would love to win the mist eyes skein to knit a scarf, it’s such a beautiful colour

  • Barbara Pankhurst

    This is lovely idea. I like both the yarns with perhaps the misty blue as a preference. I would like to make a Christmas stocking with the yarn but I also think it would make a beautiful shoulder shawl.

  • Maggie Anderson

    What a lovely idea, and such beautiful things! I would choose the misty eyes and hopefully make a warm cowl or wrist warmers for my manager who sits all day in a back office and shivers! Hope next year will bring you more ups and fewer downs.

  • Patrizia

    Thank you for this lovely giveaway! I’m already subscribed to your newsletter and this yarn looks so scrumptious! Love the natural grey and would make a great cowl!

  • Monique Koomans-de Hoon

    Wauw, what a great give-away! Thank you so much for organizing this! I fell head over heels in love with the misty eyes, it would make a wonderfull and warm hat. I don’t know the magazine, but it looks great!
    I hope the “downs” are far away by now, wishing you all the best!
    Love, Monique

  • Kristina Höijer

    I found the Little Grey Sheep earlier this year and bought some wonderful Gotland yarn. I havent tried the hamshire Dk but it looks lovely and the names of the different colours just makes me want to buy them all. I have been drewling over the “outlanderish” shoulder cowl to be found in Sticka 2 and just learned that you are the designer- brilliant! . And since I never would order anything “Misty” – thats what I would like to win. Holding my thumbs for a week now!
    lots of wooly love

  • What a fabulous giveaway, sweetheart! So generous of you ….. Hate to read about the down’s, but I guess the up’s would be hard to notice without them……wish they’d passed you by though. Happy you’ve had a few up’s as well: we need those in our lives. To end on a definite up: love the yarn (both colors are to die for), and the magazine looks wonderful too. Have a great week, dearest! Love, Marianne xx

    Great giveaway! I’m already subscribed to your newsletter and would love the colour natural grey. I’d like to knit the hat

  • Elizabeth Little

    I’d love to use this lovely yarn as it is produced near to where I live. It’s good to support a local business as well as knitting with a beautiful yarn. I’d like to knit the Arrow Shawl from Sticka 2 in natural grey.

  • I’ve also subscribed. Love your work. Misty eyes is my favourite colour as I love greens. I think I’d make a cute sweater for my soon to arrive grand-nephew. His mother loves all natural materials and I’d make it for when he’s a bit older.

  • Joanne Rushworth

    Gorgeous giveaway. I already subscribe to your newsletter and would love to win the natural grey. I would knit a shawlette/cowl to show off this stunning yarn. X

  • Katy D

    So exciting!! I have subscribed to the newsletter. I would love to have the misty eyes colour and I would knit a shawlette. Thank you!

  • Marisa

    Beautiful giveaway Heike. I’m already subscribed to your newsletter and I would choose the blue. I would combine it with a navy blue yarn for a hat for my Robert to take to sea with him when he leaves for his next phase of engineering officer training. He’s home in two weeks time and hopefully will still be at home for Christmas xxx

  • Sylvia Hopwood

    Lovely giveaway thank you ,I’ve subscribed and would love the colour misty blue .I would use it to make a cowl in the peace along project kal.

  • Pippa Knight

    Oh this looks wonderful. The misty eyes colour would go wonderfully with a hank that I brought back from Denmark with me after my last holiday. I would love to find a shawl pattern that would showcase them.
    Have just subscribed to your newsletter. X

  • Catherine

    Those yarns look really special and it is so difficult to choose but I think the misty blue would make a beautiful cowl for a chilly winter.
    I’ve subscribed to the newsletter too!

  • Debgarretty

    Thank you for such a lovely giveaway Heike. I always enjoy reading your posts here at Made with Loops. I would love to win the skein of “misty eyes” and I would make a super cosy hat topped with an Alpaca Pom Pom. Perfect for this frosty weather.

  • Linda Rumsey

    I’d knit a lovely warm woolly hat with the blue if I win!
