If you complete a Vasa and share it in one of the ways mentioned in the guidelines posted here, you’ll be automatically entered to win one of the prizes featured in this post! I’ll be using a random number generator to assign numbers and randomly draw winners after the deadline, June 6th.
Prize #1: Two skeins of The Fibre Company’s Road to China Light in Amythest Dark
Road to China Light became one of my favorite yarns immediately after I first worked with it. It’s a super luxe blend of baby alpaca, silk, cashmere, and camel – so it’s very, very soft. It’s a sport weight yarn and each 50g skein contains 159 yards. If you’ve never used this yarn before, trust me: it glows. You will love it.
Prize #2: Issue 14 of Extra Curricular Magazine
I discovered Extra Curricular on a trip to New Zealand last year (and I’ve mentioned it before on this blog), and it continues to be one of my very favorite independent publications. Every issue features a range of creative folk, both hobbyists and professionals, and it’s very much focused on the Aussie and Kiwi creative scenes. Issue 14 is the latest issue, the Wild & Free issue for autumn-winter 2014 (as a New Zealand publication, they’re of course heading out of summer and into autumn at the moment!). I’m a subscriber but I probably would have bought this issue for the cover illustration alone! There’s an article inside about the cover’s illustrator, Emma Wiesenekker, as well as pieces on a ukelele maker, a wholefood blogger, a graphic designer, and a freelance cheat sheet, just to name a few. Get ready to get inspired.
So there you have it! Check in with the Vasalong guidelines if you haven’t cast on yet but you’d like to, and I can’t wait to see everyone’s different versions of Vasa!
