Hi Friends of Spud & Chloë,

Important Note: Please do not leave a comment on this blog post to enter the giveaway! You have to go to the Spud & Chloë forum group or the Blue Sky Alpacas forum group to leave a comment to enter. Links are provided at the end of the post!

This is my second try on this post. My words all disappeared.  I have a very exciting giveaway for you today for Joelle’s Hoverson’s More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts. It is an absolutely gorgeous book packed full of projects that will inspire you to knit gifts for everyone you know.

Click here to go to see more photos of the book on purlsoho.com!

Click here for the Ravelry project page to see more of the projects in the book!

Many of the projects are worked up in Blue Sky Alpacas and Spud & Chloë yarns which is very exciting for us! Here are some of these projects:

Soft Baskets in Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton.

Here is my own Soft Basket in BSA cotton! I had to make one of these immediately and it is a fun and fast little project.

I filled my basket with real and felted acorns and gave it to a dear friend.

Here is the Kid’s Vest made in Spud & Chloë Sweater!

The Cozy, Comfy Pullover is made out of our S&C Outer! It looks so squishy. This project has a size range for babies through a man’s size large.

These gorgeous coasters are made in Blue Sky Melange. I would love a set of these for my house.

Kelly’s Mittens are made in Blue Sky Brushed Suri and Suri Merino. These are adorable.

Spiral Seat Cushions are made in Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky which is always a treat and especially for your seat!

This is a man’s vest made in Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Dyes. I know this is for a man but I want one, too. What a great layering piece.

Blue Sky Alpacas’ Royal is so luxurious and these socks offer a wonderful project for this special yarn.

There are so many more fantastic projects in the book! I have at least a dozen marked to make and that’s just for starters.

To make things extra sweet for you we have made it possible to enter two times per person! Here is what you can win:

2 winners will be randomly selected to each win a copy of the book AND 4 skeins of Spud & Chloë Sweater to make the Kid’s Vest. You pick the color of your choice (3 skeins for the largest size of the vest and 1 skein in a contrasting color for the monogram).

2 winners will be randomly selected to each win a copy of the book AND either the Blue Sky Royal to make the Toe-Up Socks or the BSA Brushed Suri and Suri Merino to make Kelly’s Mittens. You get to select the color of your choice!

You need to be a member of the Friends of Spud & Chloë group and/or the Friends of Blue Sky Alpacas Group or hopefully both in order to win! You need to leave one comment on one or both of the giveaway threads in these groups. We will randomly select 4 winners (2 from each group) next Monday, Nov. 1st!
