Giveaway: Custom Cabled iPad Sleeve

4 02 2011

It’s that time, finally. As I’ve mentioned, the yarn I’d originally set aside for this giveaway was re-purposed for an emergency Christmas present (not mine; I’m a planner), so this giveaway, which I’d intended to do in December, was unavoidably delayed. This isn’t all bad, as I’m delighted to announce that this giveaway is now helping me celebrate a new step in my love of knitting. I’ve opened, a shop specializing in well-made handknit goods out of lovely fibers, so please take a peek!

As to the sleeve I had intended to offer, I considered what to use for it  instead of the absent yarn, when an idea occurred to me. Why not run with the fact that I don’t have yarn on hand? So, instead of offering a pre-made sleeve, I’m offering a custom sleeve. The winner can select any in-stock skein of Malabrigo Merino Worsted at Eat. Sleep. Knit.. This allows me to do something else different as well. I wrote the initial pattern to have a flap because the Kindle Sleeve does, but I know some people are not flap fans, so I’m also offering a choice of flap or no flap.

Leave me a comment telling me about your favorite hand-knit item and some contact info. I will select the winner by random number generator at noon EST in one week, on 02/11/11.

What a beautiful piece of art. My favorite item isn’t mine, but my nephew has a cable knit sweater from the UK from his aunt – it’s for a little boy age 2, adorable.

My wife and I will be looking at your Etsy page. Nice work.

Oh dear, my favorite handknit item? I love my Amanda Hat knit in Malabrigo Worsted in the Pagoda colorway! I throw it on and feel 10x more mature & fancy.

I don’t have an iPad or a Kindle; I just wanted to comment on how nice your sleeve looked!

My favorite knitted item is my Facets Hat in Have You Any Wool Luxe Worsted. It’s a beautiful spice-colored beanie with textured diamonds. It’s my favorite color, it’s extremely warm and soft and I get compliments every time I wear it.
