Y.A.R.N. Give Away 31.03.2012


This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". Matt originally posted this content on his old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". We thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so we are recycling the content from Matt's old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.


Y.A.R.N Give Away

Hello lovely people!
As promised we're giving you the chance to win some of our favourite yarn!
We have 6 gorgeous cones of luxurious merino wool to give away as a set.


We have picked six of our favourite shades, each one weighing 200 grams.


Certainly that's enough to make something pretty FABULOUS!!! Perhaps a throw? some shawls?........or a gazzilion colourful flowers!


If that wasn't enough, we also have a selection of bright rainbow shades of 'Universal Cotton' by Wolle Rodel. Which we will be giving away to our second place winner.


We decided to share this cotton with you, because it's one of our favourite "go to" yarns, that we use for small and colourful projects around the house. Isn't it divine?!


This cotton is perfect for bright cheery amigurumi or quick projects, such as these pretty flowers Dennis made using the pattern by Lucy at Attic24.


We have seven vibrant shades of this glorious cotton to share with you, and we cant wait to see what you will dream up and make with it!
Sooo....What do you have to do to win this yummy yarn?
Now we've come up with the idea that to win this yarn, all you have to do is come up with a little poem or a collection of words. The only rule is you have to use the letters Y, A, R and N. It doesn't have to be anything big or crazy, just a little something creative and fun. So for example:
You could just write four words that relate to your passion for crafting:


Or maybe a little rhyming poem:


Or perhaps something that describes just how much of a crafting obsession you have:
It can be as long or a short as you like. As silly or serious as you like......however and whatever you like!
You can even get REALLY creative and make your poem/words into a drawing or maybe fashion it out of yarn. You can then send us a photo of it.
Remember though......this is just for FUN!!
Once you have your little Y.A.R.N poem/words/project, you can either leave it in the comments box below or email it to us at: accordingtomattblogspot.com@gmail.com
(If you leave it in the comment box below, please make sure that we have a way of contacting you. Either a link to your blog or to your blogger profile).
We will mail the yarn to anywhere in the world and are quite excited to see where it may end up!
The closing date for your Y.A.R.N entries, will be Sunday 15th April 2012.
We will announce the winner on the following Monday, once we have chosen our favourite.
The 1st prize winner will win the luxurious Merino cones and the 2nd place winner will receive the playful Universal Cotton.


We are very excited to see what you may come up with!
We hope you have fun!!!!!!
