Wow! There were so many things happening this week in the Bernat community! I don’t know where to begin!!
I guess a good place to start would be with Bernat’s free yarn contests! Congratulations to Debbie Skinner Terro, who won $25 worth of Bernat yarn in the “Name This Pattern” Facebook contest. She came up with a really FUN name - Rickrack Paddywhack! Another yarn give-away was posted on the Bernat Blog, where “Cherie” won a Bernat pattern book, with 3 skeins of Bernat Pipsqueak yarn. Didn’t win this time? Don’t give up! You’ll find more prizes and contests all during Bernat’s Baby Month, by following us on Facebook, Twitter, and here on the blog! HINT: You’ll find one of those new give-aways right HERE!
I hope that you are signed up for the Bernat Newsletter, because the August issue is awesome, which means that it has SIX NEW BABY BLANKET PATTERNS!!! It also opens the door for MORE free patterns, MORE free yarn, lots of great knitting and crochet tips, and how to get started with hairpin lace, as well as updates from Vickie Howell - Bernat’s celebrity spokesperson.
KAL & CAL – Have you joined in our new crochet-along and knit-along for baby month? It’s not too late – we just got started this week, and would love for you to join us. We are crocheting the sweet Flutter Sleeve Vest, and knitting the beautifully intricate Cable Baby Sack. Even if you aren’t participating, you should still come and read the forum posts, because we are having a great time together. Your encouragement and advice would be very helpful. Our KALs and CALs in the forum are the perfect way to learn to make Bernat’s new patterns – and you’ll make some new friends too!
