Arabella....One to giveaway!

My first crochet design for 'The Knitter' magazine was published in Issue 51.  Yes, I know its called 'THE KNITTER', but because they are such a brilliant publication they do experiment with the odd little bit of crochet, etc.....!  

Arabella -  The Knitter Magazine Issue 51
I particularly enjoyed designing this accessory.  I've had lots of lovely comments about it too.  Thank you to everyone who sent me messages, it really means a lot and spurs me on no end.  I have had a couple of requests for collars too and have just finished this version in Gun Metal Grey. 

As a special Christmas Gift, for one lucky recipient, I am going to offer a collar made up in a choice of the following colours: 
Colours all have a metallic sheen
Different background changes colour
NOTE: Colours differ with photography, if you wish look on the Black Sheep website  at the shades too, I can also make with clear or colour beads.  All you have to do is like or make a comment on my blog or facebook page or even my Ravelry page.  Include your colour choice and the following code: TKNcol51.  I will draw the lucky winner on 2/12/12 and announce it on FB and the blog, you will then need to DM me as soon as possible to confirm the address so I can send out the collar on the 5/12/12, if you don't live in the UK I would imagine the post won't reach you before Christmas, but then you will have something to look forward to for the New Year.  So good luck everyone and keep checking out the blog as I am doing some re-writes and updates on existing patterns and some new ones too.

Until next time........Nicky xx
