yarnovermovement giveaway



Enid and Tara-Lynn in their yarnovermovement berets

One of my all-time favourite people that I have met through this funny innnernet is Tara-Lynn of the wonderful Etsy shop yarnovermovement. Always lovely, 100% genuine, bursting with creativity & integrity, Tara-Lynn is constantly coming up with new, original patterns for knitted items that can carry a girl through all the seasons.

Tara-Lynn has been sweet enough to allow me to host a giveaway of a couple of her items: the knit ascot in cranberry, as well as a knit hair bow in the colour of your choice. To enter, please visit yarnovermovement on Etsy and leave a comment here. I will select a winner on Sunday evening using the random number generator. Please be sure to leave your name and an email (formatted with "[at]") if you are leaving an anonymous comment.

Edited to add: yarnovermovement will be adding a free hair bow (colour of your choice) to any order that mentions this giveaway!



Tara-Lynn happens to be participating in the YART sale at the moment, which is a great opportunity for you. I recommend the chunky cowl in orange. It's so nice! I have one in taupe and I adore it.
I am also glad for the opportunity to be hosting this giveaway because it means I get to post a few pictures from her Flickr account. I hope you have enjoyed them as much as I do.


Even though she doesn't live too far away from me, we're both too shy to have met in person -- but I do look forward to meeting her soon! She inspires me so much and I've never been able to forget the first time I saw her pictures, years ago when she was selling knitting patterns under the name DIY Knits: à faire soi-même. I thought she was just the coolest girl ever, just absolutely gorgeous, and I never dreamed we would eventually be penpals (it's true -- we've been swapping snail mail!). Lately she has also been co-running the vintage clothing shop darlingbrigade, which I love.

Thanks, T.-L., and good luck!

  24. I've had the beret bookmarked for ages. I'm a terrible knitter but I may get the pattern as inspiration to improve.

    The ascot is great too! I love the color.
