Project Pack Attack!!!

Jimmy showing off the
first project packs!
Happy Wednesday everyone!  I hope you all are well.  :)  I wanted to take a few minutes to talk about Project Packs!  Who’s been collecting them?  I know I have!

For those who have no clue what I am talking about, the project packs are the bags we ship our orders in!  About a year ago, we started printing a free pattern on all of our shipping bags for your enjoyment.  We posted about them on the blog and mentioned that we’d do a contest at some point to see who collected the most.  
You sure do!!!


And then we got busy.  Really busy.  You know, with all kinds of knitting and crochet related stuff.  No excuses, I know. :)  
Well, we just wanted to check in and make sure that people were still collecting them.  We will be holding a contest in the future, but I wanted to update you on some new fun patterns we’ll have out soon!


For a recap, here’s what we’ve had so far:
Bag 1- Honey Do Sock Pattern from Lorna's Laces
Bag 2- Meadow Bolero from the winner of our Landscape Collection Contest: Heather Miller
Bag 3- Make No Mistake Scarf- by our very own Jeanne Giles
Bag 4- Mushishi Cowl from Plymouth yarns
Bag 5- Chrysalis Cowl from Madelinetosh
Bag 6- Lace and Cables Capelet by Norah Gaughan for Berroco 


We'll be posting these freebies on the "Free Patterns" section of our site soon for those of you who missed out.  We'll let you know when they are up!
Hm.  That face looks familiar! :)

And coming soon to the Project Packs we have....drumroll please...a gorgeous design from Artyarns and a fun baby items from Muench!


So anyway, we’ve been having a lot of fun with these project packs and we hope you are too!  Keep saving them...we are planning a contest for next year to coincide with our official 10th anniversary!


Happy knitting and crocheting!

I must have missed out on the first few since I'm a pretty new customer, but I have gotten 4, 5 and 6, and have plans for both 4 and 5 (plus the yarn for them thanks to JBW!). I think the project packs are a great idea! Keep 'em comin'!

Awesome thing...patterns on the bags! Thank you! But, shoot, a contest...I haven't been saving ALL of them (and there have been tons)!
