It’s prize time!

This time of the year is rather special around here, because it’s World Wide Knit in Public time! So to celebrate, we’re having not one but two prize draws!

Prize Draw One works like this: any time that you spend €20 either in the shop or online between Saturday the 8th of June and Saturday the 15th of June inclusive, you’ll be entered in the draw.

To enter Prize Draw Two, all you need to do is get a picture of yourself knitting in public – at the bus stop, on the beach, at work, wherever takes your fancy! Then tweet the picture to us (@ThisIsKnit), or post it to our facebook page, or email it to us before the 15th of June, and that’s your entry.

Can you enter both draws? Of course you can! The more the merrier!

And what will the lucky winners receive? Why, thank you for asking. First of all, each prize includes the gorgeous brooch at the top of this post! It’s Eimear Earley’s newest shawl pin design, exclusive to This Is Knit.

Just like her first design for us, it’s hand-crafted from stainless steel by NovaSteel, and it draws its inspiration from historical penannular brooches like these.

And that’s not all. Each winner will receive a skein of Fyberspates Laceweight (that’s 1000 metres of merino/silk delight)…

… and a pack of our new Boye Knit or Crochet Labels (what a lovely way to personalise your gifts!):

And the very best of luck to all of you!
