January Giveaway - Winstans Woolies

20/01/2014 - Matt Chatterley

Blue Monday? Wipe the worries away with some Woolies!

Winstans Woolies - Ugg Boots Today is allegedly the most depressing day of the year (although to be honest, it's a load of fluff made up by Sky Travel years ago). Just in-case there's any truth to the rumours, we thought we'd bring you another fabulous giveaway to cheer you up!

Our sponsor this month is the lovely Suzy from Winstans Woolies, who will tell you all about herself shortly. The prize on offer this month is an awesome pair of knitted 'ugg style' boots!

Winstans Woolies - Fair Isle Hat Let's get the rules out of the way first. To enter, just visit our sponsor's links (at the end) and come back and leave a comment on this post telling us which of her beautiful makes is your favourite.

Comments left before midnight (GMT) on Sunday 26th January 2014 will be entered into the draw and we'll announce the winner on the following Monday. Entries are accepted at our discretion and the winner will be selected at random.

PS, if you're running your own giveaway, why not add it to our new competitions page and get some extra publicity? Click here for more information!

Meet Suzy, from Winstans Woolies!

Winstans Woolies - Ruffle Booties Hi!

I'm Suzy from Winstans Woolies. I took knitting back up again just over 2 years ago after not touching a pair of needles in nearly 30 years!

I mostly make accessories for children and babies, with the booties being my all time favourite.

I wouldn't say I'm a naturally creative person, however when I have a pair of needles in my hands I surprise myself with what I achieve. I created a facebook page to share my creations with my friends and family and now receive many requests through this. I'm hoping to have my website up and running soon, so looking forward to having my own little business.

Winstans Woolies - Cowl I work part time, so knitting is my evening activity and at any time during the day that I get a spare 5 minutes. I have been known to knit in the car while waiting to pick up my son from nursery..

I have found a great group of friends through our local Stitch and Bitch group, which I go to every week. It's lovely to share and learn from each other.

I hope you like my creations!

Visit Winstans Woolies now!
