[Giveaway] – Knit ‘n’ Caboodle Kit CLOSED

14th November 2012 – THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED! The winner is Jenny L. You will have received an email about this, congratulations! Much love, Corrie xx

Do you remember the Towersey Shawl that I got from Knit ‘n’ Caboodle at Towersey Village Festival? This one?

I finished it and haven’t yet done a post about it, so here is my final photo and a brief review.

The project kit that I bought was the “Shawl from One Ball“. I got to choose my colours, which was a variegated yarn in a mix of greeny-bluey-teal, and I was so thrilled with the way that it knit up. You get to customise the pattern a bit to your own choice with respect to the lacey-aspect of it, and I tried to do this in a fairly structured way. I love the way it came out. It was brilliant watching the ball unravel and guessing what the colours were going to look like when they were actually knitted – it was surprisingly different, but in a brighter, better way.

Finished in all of its glory :)

In terms of the actual knitting, it was pleasingly easy. There was a large amount of garter stitch, and I was worried I would get bored, but being able to customise the pattern meant that whenever I felt I was losing interest, I would just add another row of lace in.

All in all, it was fabulous. I blocked it really severely, and it grew a huge amount when I did so. I did it on the bed while JS was away for Saturday night, and it is ready and finished today. Unfortunately, I’ve been feeling ill and totally against the thought of taking photos of myself modelling it, so you will have to wait for that.

    Not sure about anyone else, but the link to Knit ‘n’ Caboodle wasn’t working for me.

    I think this is the correct link: http://www.knitncaboodle.co.uk/acatalog/KnittingKits.html

    I’d love to win a kit for the Spangled Cowl because I’ve always wanted to try King Cole Galaxy and I need more sparkly things in my life.

    Your shawl looks awesome by the way, but it’s not truly finished until you model it for us ;)

  2. Barbara says:

    Great shawl! I’d love to try the Zauerball shawl. It looks warm and like it could be done in small pieces on trips and such.

    I shared on twitter!

  3. Sarah Jones says:

    I would love the spangled cowl kit as I love sparkly yarn and I love cowls! It was pretty tricky choosing as all the kits look fabulous!!

  4. Vix says:

    I would love to win the Zauberball shawl kit, especially in Lilac breeze as I think it’s beautiful, and I’ve never knitted a shawl before, but I’d rather like to! It would be nice to knit something for myself for a change!

    • Corrie says:

      Good choice, and I definitely approve of knitting something for yourself! Don’t forget to share three more times for more chances of winning, Vix!


  5. asteride says:

    I would love to win the Poems Felted Bag Kit 09. I love those colors!

    Shimmer Shawl kit and Shawl from One Ball kit are my favorites because I think they are pretty and would be fun to knit.

  9. Gail says:

    I think your shawl is fabulous! I love the striping, especially the green and teal. I want to make one of those!
    (I’m donaldsg on Ravelry)

    • Corrie says:

      Thank you so much! I think it’s brilliant too :) Though I don’t know if the colours suit me. I need to get a photo of me wearing it and let people give me advice but everytime I go outside to take photos it starts raining!

  10. brenda says:

    I like the Spangled Cowl; it’s pretty and eye-catching.
    Thx for hosting the giveaway!
    (goodstuff on Rav)

  11. LumosKP (Jennifer) says:

    Oh my gosh, they are all so beautiful!!! But as I’ve been dying to try my hand at Nordic knitting, and I’d love to make that sweater for my darling daughter as a Christmas present (or possibly birthday in March!), I’d have to go with the Nordic Sweater kit! :)

  12. Linda says:

    I’d love to win the kit for the Zauberball gauntlets, they look like they’d be fun to make and it’s definitely the season for extra warmth on the arms. ;-)

  13. Sara B. says:

    I’d want the Hottie Cover Kit – I use many hot water bottles every winter. And my family has started requesting them too! That pattern looks very cozy.

  14. Christine says:

    I would love the Zauberball Shawl kit; I’ve heard so many great things about Zauberball but never had a chance to work with it!

  15. Mairlynd says:

    Lovely! I know this feeling when working with variegated yarn. I’m also so exited each time to finally see how the colors develop in the knitting.

    And I’d like win the Zauberball Shawl knitting kit. I’m very much into adding a bit color to my life at the moment, because everything outside is a rainy mess…

  16. Fleur says:

    Wow, great giveaway! I would definitely choose the Spangled Cowls, because I always – right this minute as well – feel cold since Autumn has started. And the King Cole Galaxy makes it look marvelous!

    Ciao, Fleur (Fleurtje-Eliza on Ravelry)

  17. Sheila says:

    I would hav to say Zauberball-Gauntlet is my fav. I know last year we didnt get much of. Winter here in MI and these are so pretty, these would be smooth and warm to wear.

  18. Connie K. says:

    I would love to knit the Shawl from One Ball in Carnation. I’m getting the winter is coming blahs and I think a nice pink shawl is just the thing to pick me up.

  19. Karen says:

    I would love to win the Zauberball kit.

  20. Linda B says:

    I adore the Nordic Sweater !! …. and the hottie covers are so cute, they would make brill Christmas prezzies.

  21. Joanne Perrow says:

    I love the Nordic sweater kit – so cozy looking.

  22. Rose says:

    I would have to select the Shawl from one Ball kit because seeing yours has made me want it terribly. Yours is just so gorgeous.

    Thank you for a delightful giveaway.

  23. Kathleen Crapse says:

    I like the Spangled Cowls kit. Love your shawl! And in my colors too. ;~))

  24. Dahlia says:

    These are all really neat, but I really like the Zauberball Gauntlets, especially in Lilac Breeze. I think these colors are really pretty, I almost bought some of this yarn for a different project, but ended up going with something else, but I’ve always wanted to work with it.

    PS. I like your shawl. =D

  25. knittingdancer on Ravelry says:

    I would pick the Shawl from One Ball pattern. I just love knitting shawls.

  26. Debra says:

    I love the felted aran bag.

  27. thressa brace says:

    I would love to win the Knitcol Sock Kit. I love the Kandinsky colorway and the fact you get needles, yarn, stitchmarkers and bag. A perfect choice to a project to keep stashed in the car!!

  28. Amy says:

    I would love to try the Nordic sweater kit. I am an experienced knitter, but I’ve yet to try to knit a sweater. It just seems like I never have the confidence to buy “sweater quantities” of yarn when I’m nervous about my commitment to the project. A kit would be a great way to get all the supplies together, and perhaps that would motivate me to starting the project!

    I like the Glove Kit! I’ve always wanted to make gloves, but its a bit daunting to think of all those fingers…

  30. SpindleImp says:

    I adore the Nordic Sweater. It looks so comfy and the two colours also make it look elegant. I could do with a beautiful new jumper. :-)

  47. Deann says:

    Lovely shawl! I would like to make one also :)

    For me it is a tough decision though.. I like all of the other kits too ;) I think it would come down to Shawl from a Ball and Knitcol sock kit.

    So many lovely choices. I would choose the Nordic sweater. I haven’t made a yoke sweater/jumper in *cough* about 20 years! Somehow, they’ve all been cardigans and/or in pieces. That looks like an enjoyable knit -and interesting to have pattern repeats in the body of the sweater, too. BTW, your shawl is just lovely!
