Capelet Giveaway Extravaganza!

Click the photo above to be taken to the Ravelry pattern page

The Winter issue of Knitcircus came out today, and features not only a video where yours truly will teach you how to work I-cord and applied I-cord, but also features a little design of mine, the Priscilla Vintage Capelet!

Texture, short rows and an I-cord edging complete this look. Also, isn't my beagle cute?

This capelet was inspired by an antique stitch pattern book; I selected a dainty border that was originally intended to be worked on minuscule needles and crochet thread, and turned it into a big fashion statement! Seen here in America's Alpaca Blend DK held doubled throughout, the capelet whips up in a jiffy when worked on Size 8/5 mm needles! You've still got plenty of time to knit one before the holidays, so I thought I'd help you towards that end. That's right, kids, it's GIVEAWAY TIME!!!

America's Alpaca was gracious enough to sponsor the giveaway with enough yarn to work the capelet, but that's not all! I also have a lovely project bag from RudDawg, some handmade point protectors from Kusala Knitworks, a pair of Signature Needles, and a copy of the Winter Pattern Collection from Knitcircus!

So here are all the goodies:

That's 1320 yards of luxury, a fabulous project bag, and an entire SET of point protectors!

The project bag is a Medium KIP bag from one of my very favorite project bag makers on Etsy: RudDawg. I have two of her Small KIP bags that I use absolutely all the time, which are great for socks and other small-to-medium-ish projects. Brenda's bags are made out of high-quality cotton, they have a nice fleece base the bag can stand on, and they are fully lined with about a jillion pockets inside (seriously). They also close with a double drawstring, which I generally prefer to zippers, since I'm the klutzy type that always manages to snag my yarn in the zipper. With the small bags priced at just $9.50 and the mediums at $15-$17, they're some of the most affordable bags I've found. And as if that's not enough, she even has a clearance section, where you can often snag the small bags for about $6.50. This one's big enough to fit all 6 skeins of yarn with a tiny bit of room left over!

Fabulous custom point protectors and YARN!!

I was really excited when Jennifer offered up a set of her custom wine-cork point protectors, because how perfect are these going to be with the razor-sharp Signature Needles? Perfect, that's how. It was also Jennifer's idea for me to find a needle sponsor, so thank her for my contacting Signature! Definitely go check out her Etsy shop, because she has many other cute things, including LEGO stitch markers!

This yarn was a real delight to work with; it's the perfect blend of 70% alpaca and 30% merino, with a nice tight twist so your knitting doesn't get a weird halo to it. It was a great pairing for the textural quality of the stitch pattern in the capelet! These skeins come in put-ups of 220 yards per ball and retail for $14.00 each; they come in 4 colors and can be purchased directly from America's Alpaca.

Signature Needles! THE knitting needle.

The winner of this giveaway will also receive a pair of size 8/5 mm needle from Signature Needle Arts, in 14" straight needles with their their choice of point and cap or a 32" circular needle. Seriously, every person I have ever known who has tried these needles says they're unlike anything they've ever worked with before, and tells me very earnestly that if they could afford to switch ALL their needles for these, they'd do it in a heartbeat. That's some pretty convincing advertising, right there!

So, you probably want to know how to enter the giveaway, amiright? Well, first go and queue up the pattern on Ravelry. Hey, this giveaway is all about my pattern, and if you win you'll have everything you need to make it, so you might as well put it in your queue, right? Then, I think it would be nice to thank all of our sponsors in the comments, so come back here and leave a comment with any one of the following (you don't have to answer them all!!):
  • Your favorite pattern from this issue of Knitcircus OR
  • Your favorite project bag in RudDawg's store OR
  • Which item you find most covetable in Kusala Knitworks' shop OR
  • Which needle you'd choose from Signature if you were to win, OR
  • Your dream order from America's Alpaca
I'll leave the comments open until midnight, Central US time on Black Friday, November 25th. The winner (one winner takes it all!) will be chosen by the Random Number Generator and announced, um...well, I would tell you when I'll announce it, but honestly every time I do that I never seem to get around to it, so let's just say I'll announce it as soon as I can. I'll be traveling until the 27th (the Dr. and I are going to WY for Thanksgiving!) so it'll probably be the 28th.

    I think my favorite knitcircus pattern is your of course! I have been wanting to do a caplet for a while :D
    My favorite project bag from RudDawg's store is KIP Small Drawstring Knitting Bag Blossoms. I just love the blossoms :D
    I find the Lacy Feminine Head Kerchief most covetable in Kusala Knitworks' shop, I love working with lace patterns.
    If I were to win I will pick the spiral tip and stilleto tip needle, I tried them once and I was in love with them.

  2. I'd definitely take the circular signature needles - I hear so much about signatures I'd love to try them. As for pattern, I love the Valle di Susa wrap.

  3. Oh, I love the knit pirates bag!

    ReplyDelete
  4. What a beautiful pattern and everything else as well!!

    I would definitely take the circular knitting needles...I've been dreaming of Signature Needles for well over a year.
    My favorite project bag is KIP Bag Small Sock Knitting Project Bag Parasols by far!
    And, I'm torn between the lego head stitch markers and the Chinese Lantern stitch markers. Although, I think the Chinese Lantern stitch markers would be fantastic in combination with the Parasol bag.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Hooboy, how I love those lego head stitch markers!

  6. I would totally choose the circulars. LOVE my signature needles.

    LOVE The pattern!! OMGOSH!!! Is it tough for a beginner? Maybe I'll tackle it after the shawletter and use some silk thread I have for a winter/spring deep south cape. :)

    The bags are super cute! May pick out a couple and email them to family as a christmas wish. I love the Blossoms and Blood Drops. :)

  9. lotsofhermies on Rav

    I have favorited your cape on Rav my 13 yr old wants one.I love the French Roast sweater in Knitcircus. I am drolling over the small sock bag in Effervescence from ruddawg. I love the Green and Blue lego head stitch markers from Kusala Knitworks shop(I would have to hide them from my 11 yr old son who loves his lego guys). I prefer circular needles. A pile of alpaca yarn in dk weight would be perfect to squish I love the natural browns.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I luved the mag and the dream shopping.
    Which pattern do I like best from KnitCircus? Of course yours rawks! I would choose it and the one on the cover for a backup.
    The flower trail pattern is my fave but the autumn jewels is loverly. Hard to choose but I would choose the flower trail.
    The Pearl and Swirl markers are lovely. I'll send Santa the link to add to my looong wish list.
    My dream order from Americas Alpaca??
    The Peruvian Sock Variety Package AND
    5 or 9 or 15 skeins of bulky yarn in every color AND
    Several woven bags in various sizes. They look interesting and would come in handy.
    And....as long as I'm dreaming.....the Cherokee alpaca throw looks yumalicous..so I want several of those too AND several of the blankets woven at Pendleton Mills. ;-]
    I'm finished dreaming and can get back to knitting.

  11. LOVE the capelet pattern!! Would definitely choose a size 6 needle, if I could, since I always seem to be a pair short! Off to Ravelry (I'm EditorABC) to give some love to this project :)

    ReplyDelete
  12. LOVE the capelet and can't tell you how much I would love to win this prize. Your sponsors have been SOOOO generous...so I'll answer all your questions!

    1. Though I love your pattern and will definately be making this someday (hopefully sooner than later), I also really like Ripen and the Confection Hat. You should be proud to be included in such a great collection!

    2. I've never used a project bag before and tend to leave my projects laying around... not good with a two year old in the house. I haven't had a mishap yet but I'm sure the Misfit Small KIP Bag from RudDawg would be a wise investment...

    3. An easy choice with Kusala Knitwork's shop... LOVE the Kids Cowboy Felted Holster Set Pattern. My son loves to pretend he is "Woody"... this just might be the perfect knit stocking stuffer I was looking for.

    4. As a circular needle fan I would choose the size 8/5 mm 32" circular needle.... Stilleto please! Already added some to my Christmas wish list....

    5. As far as America's Alpaca... when I dream I dream big. I'd go for the Trigo De Otono / Alpaca Blanket Project. Who WOULDN'T want to snuggle up with that on a cold evening in the midwest. LOVE!

    Wishing everyone the best... what a great prize! (Pick me, Pick me!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  13. So many gorgeous bags! I think Effervescence is my favorite: http://www.etsy.com/listing/85900728/kip-small-sock-knitting-project-bag

    And Kulsala's shop is a lot of fun -- I love the apple cozy and the embroidered camel armwarmers.

    And Knitcircus does it again! That cardigan on the cover, French Roast, is stunning. Sandrilene? Be still my heart. :)

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  14. The capelet is fabulous. Love it!

    My favorite project from Knit Circus, this time around, is Sandrilene. It's the yellow, I think.

    I have one project bag that I use for my sock knitting. I love the KIP Bag Small Sock Knitting Project Bag Cupcakes.

    I love Kusala...I love her stitch markers. My favorites are the Pirate Stitch Markers.

    If I had to choose a needle, if I won...size 8/5 mm 32" circular needle.

    And for America's Alpaca...any of their yarn would do, but I really like their Extreme Boot Socks. Yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a fantastic giveaway! :)

    I really like your capelet and my other fave in the Knitcircus edition are the Riffle gloves by Anna Dalvi. As for Signature needles, I've been oogling thjem forever and would love to try circular needles, as this is all I use.

  16. What a fabulous giveaway! What wonderful sponsors!!

    My favorite pattern from this issue of Knit Circus? It's a 3-way tie between your Priscilla Vintage Capelet (perfect for Houston winters where it may be 30* in the morning and 65* by noon!), Riffle (mesmerizing!) and Peleology (cables + socks = infatuation!)

    Alpaca is probably my favorite fiber to knit & wear & spin & wrap up in. . . . I think it's safe to say that my "Dream Wish List" from America's Alpaca would be one of everything!

  17. Fabulous!

    This issue of Knitcircus is filled with great patterns and article, but I have been wanting some patterned gloves, so I particularly love the Riffle gloves. Like Corinne, I only use circs and have been coveting the Signature needles!

  21. Oh goodness... this IS the giveaway to end all giveaways... WOW. Gorgeous!!

    In addition to your lovely pattern, I also love the Icy Rivulet Shawl in Knitcircus, also beautiful. For these two patterns alone, I need a copy of this issue!

    Also, those cork point protectors? Are FABULOUS. And Signature circs? I'm drooling over here, Sarah! :-)

  22. Loves2Dance on Ravelry.

    I would love the Signature straight needles.

    My favourite pattern in Knitcircus, other than your capelet is the Ripen Shawl.

    My favourite on yarn would be the 10-pack Hand Knitting Alpaca Blend DK Yarn.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I've got 2 favorite patterns in the new Knitcircus magazine: your pattern (no kidding!) and the Riffle gloves. I also have to add the Ripen shawl because of the great lace border.
    I never tried Signature needles, but heard so many nice things that I'd like to try them all! But I'll pick some circular ones, as I like to knit with circular, even for flat knitting.
    My dream order to America's Alpaca would be a 10-pack Handknitting 100% Alpaca Bulky Yarn (in brown or beige), for a cozy sweater.
    And I really like the Lego heads stitch markers from KusalaKnitworks (so funny) and the small project bag with white blossoms from ruddawg (so cheerful).
    I'm crossing my fingers to be the winner of this incredible giveaway!
    Thanks for organizing this...

  24. I love the Geometric fabric in Rud Dawg's KIP bag! http://www.etsy.com/listing/84722936/kip-medium-project-bag-geometric
    Thanks for the opportunity to win! Such a HUGE giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ok, I've queued the pattern (so cute!) and I sincerely thank all the sponsors for their supreme generosity!! I have not tried the Signature needles (like I can afford that love!) but would probably get a size US 8 with stiletto tips, 24" cord, 5" needles. Yeah, I haven't thought about it or anything. The Alpaca company has some amazing looking yarn, too! The Extreme Alpaca Socks or the DK would be my first choice. It would be hard to choose but given the chance, I think I could narrow it down. Wow! what a giveaway...thanks!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Signature size 8 32" circular needles definitely! I've been trying to figure out which ones to ask for for Christmas, anyway! Great pattern, Sarah, and congratulations on your designing success! Thank you for the opportunity to win such a wonderful give away.

    ReplyDelete
  27. The cape is gorgeous and that little dog is awesome. I have been jonseing for a Signature circular ever since I found out about them. Stiletto point of course.

    But those Lego Head stitch markers? Those are freaking hysterical. I want several sets.

  28. I have queued your beautful pattern.

    My fav knit circus patter is Syrinx hat and cowl.
    In Rud Dawgs shop I like the Fabric Yarn Bowl bad Kitties 3.

    In Kusala Knitworks' shop I like the Button Tab Women's Beanie.

    The signature needles I would love is the 32" circular in the pointiest tip.

    From America's Alpaca I love the fleece lined chullo.

  30. What a great giveaway! My favorite item in the Rud Dawg shop is the Simpson's fabric bowl. As far as Signature needles are concerned, I would definitely go with the circular needles.

  37. First of all, Sarah, I want to say congrats on your capelet pattern being published in the Knitcircus magazine! And then I'd like to say WOW to this incredible giveaway!!

    I went and looked at all the sponsors' sites, and there are so many wonderful items!

    1. From Knitcircus, I love the Ripen Shawl, and your capelet- it's so gorgeous, and caught my eye immediately when I browsed through the new patterns yesterday. Of course I have it queued :)

    2. From RudDwag's esty shop, I love the medium KIP bag in Autumn Jewels!

    3. The cork point protectors are great, but I also love the LEGO stitch markers as they remind me of my childhood and my LEGO house that I had!

    4. From Signature, I'd love to try a circular needle in either US 6 or 7 for knitting lace. Hmmm, must be wonderful :)

    5. And last but not least, my dream order from America's Alpaca would be several skeins of bulky Alpaca blend yarn in the rosegray colour.

    Good luck to everyone, and thanks again for a chance to win!

  38. I had your capelete already queued because my daughter requested one and I thought it was perfect. As far as the other, I had not been introduced to RudDawg before and found a gorgeous small drawstring bag in "Victorian Wallpaper" (http://www.etsy.com/listing/79692343/kip-small-drawstring-knitting-bag) that I will not so subtly be hinting to my husband about tonight.

  52. Cool! A giveaway! Here goes -

    *Your favorite pattern from this issue of Knitcircus - Um, other than the awesome capelet, of course, I love the Confection Hat, and the French Roast Cardigan is pretty great too.

    *Your favorite project bag in RudDawg's store - For sure the medium project bag in black & red brocade. So kimono-ish.

    *Which item you find most covetable in Kusala Knitworks' shop - Hands down the pirate stitch markers. I love me some pirate stuff!

    * Which needle you'd choose from Signature if you were to win - I've been coveting Signatures for a long time now. Definitely the teardrop tops with the stiletto points. What's sexier than stilettos?

    * Your dream order from America's Alpaca - All the yarn they freakin' have! I love alpaca, and I love their natural colors.

    Hugs,

  61. Wow, what a great giveaway ... Aside from the capelet, I've been interested in learning Tunisian Crochet so I'll probably queue up the loop scarf too. The RudDawg KIP bags are so great...I already fav'ed one for Santa to see...but I have to admit that I'm still laughing about the one in the Knitmare on Elm St fabric...hahaha what a great fabric find...I wish I could find a bolt of that somewhere (I just can't let Addie and Django see me laughing about it now that we have finally seemed to graduate from the "expensive yarn tastes soooo good" phase of canine development). And oh Signature Needles...what a lust-filled item. I've been longing to try them! And any order from America's Alpaca would need to include the small stuffed alpaca...so cute (and another learning opportunity for the dynamic duo).

  77. In this issue of Knitcircus I really liked Sprite, Sunslice and Rosebud - and of course your capelet! :) So glad they chose to print your photos, too!
    Those RudDawg bags are super cute - I liked that one with the knitting terms on it! :D
    I am in love with the Signature needles I own, but US8 straights are not a part of my collection, yet! ;)

  80. Oh, what a great prize!

    If I could have any Signature needles, I'd have to go with a US size 1, stiletto point with a bell end. Really, I'd love it if they would carry circulars in teeny tiny sizes, but Signatures are such amazing needles I know I'd use any pair I had again and again.

    Love your capeleet & photos, too. So cute!

    For the Signatures I would love circs with stiletto tips. Every time I think of buying them I say to myself you could do more with yarn than $45+ needles.

    I totally LOVE RudDawg's project bags. I have a couple. My favorite is one I snagged off the site a couple months ago- cranes on a purple background.

  85. Oh I would love to win! I queued your pattern on Rav.

    For the Signatures, I'd love the 32" circs with stiletto tip and in size 6 or 7. That's the size I use the most.

    Thanks!

  91. Wow, amazing giveaway. I've queued your capelet.

    My two favorite patterns in Knitcircus are your Capelet and Ripen. And I would so love stiletto Signature circulars. Heard good things about them, but so expensive!

  92. This pattern is so cute! My dream order from America's Alpaca would be several orders of all their colors of roving...oh and socks! So pretty!

  93. The capelet is gorgeous; the yarn is lovely. Who wouldn't want a medium bag? And a Signature circular needle is in my dreams.

  94. I like the fabric yarn bowl in butterflies from Ruddawg.
    I would choose the Signature stiletto circular needles.
    Very pretty pattern.

  95. Signature straights have been on my wish list forever, but i have to say my dream order from America's Alpaca would be enough natural alpaca to make matching sweaters for the entire family or at least hats and gloves in brown fawn and white!!!! AHHHH to be surrounded by ALPACA!!!

  96. I'd choose the 32" circulars in a size 5!

  106. The Signature needles are amazing. A friend has them and adores them; the rest of our knitting group is very envious. The medium RudDawg project bag/cats is very cute,and ironic in that cats always get into the yarn. dpax on ravelry.

  107. Yay for the capelet, I especially like the edges! And why not put it into my queue, as if there isn't any more room there! LOL! Plenty of things on my wishlist to knit, including this one ;-)

    Have a nice day all! Ciao, Fleur (Fleurtje-Eliza on Ravelry)

  108. I love the KusalaKnitworks pirate stich markers, they're so cute. In fact, I may also have to put an order in for the lego men ones too!

    And now I'm off to check out your video, because I've never tried applied i-cord and I want to learn, it always looks so smart :)

  109. I would love to own a size 6 circular with a stiletto tip.

  117. But it's not complete without a cute beagle! ;-)

    I guess the winner will have to make do, it is after all practically a suitcase of goodies. The 14" straights from Signature are the sexiest of the bunch IMHO. ♥
