Have you thought about joining us in Aiflow Non-Mystery Kal? It will be so much fun! Well, I hope so :-) Clue 1 is going to be released today so the real knitting is about to begin very soon, but before I click “update”, I’d love to present to you our great prize donors.
Elena Nodel aka Anadiomena
Elena, who is my dear friend, can be called a Renaissance woman. She designs fantastic knitwear for children (not only for girls!) and adults. But that is not all, some time ago she started dyeing her own yarn, thus creating Colour Adventures brand. Her yarns are truly amazing and the color options she offers seem to be endless. Please check out her Etsy store.
The wonderful color of Airflow has been created by Elena herself (colorway Rust). If you would like to make the cardigan with yarn dyed by Elena, feel free to use the 15%-off coupon code which you will find in your libraries. The code can be used in her Etsy store once and it expires on 16th July.
Red Riding Hood Yarns
Hannah Gordon, who is better known as Little Miss Red, is also offering a yarn prize during Airflow Non-Mystery Kal. She started knitting 4 years ago when her second son was a baby and once she started she couldn’t stop! Her love and passion for all things yarn was born and naturally led to dyeing her own yarn, then onto dyeing for friends, and in no time Red Riding Hood Yarns was born! Check out her FB page or website for stockings or yarn clubs.
Isabell Kraemer aka Lilalu
Isa’s designs are very popular among knitters. They are simple, casual, versatile and so enjoyable to make. Isabell, aka Lilalu, is also generously offering her patterns as a prize in the Kal. Please do visit her designer page to admire her work. I bet you will not be able to stop queueing all of them :-)
Monika Sirma aka mdcim
Monika Sirma, who has been my friend since the first dress I made for my daughter (designed by Monika of course), is also generously donating her patterns. She loves simple lines, sleek and modern designs with a small twist to make them unique. She believes each piece should show itself, that it was worth to create it, something special to look at, to be a heritage piece maybe. She loves perfection in every detail and she hopes her patterns illuminate that as well, making the process as enjoyable as possible. I can only recommend visiting her designer page!
Georgie Hallam aka tiKKi
I did make a couple of designs by tiKKi for my kids and they were a pure pleasure to work with, but that does not mean Georgie designs only for kids. Take a look at her website to see all the beautiful sweaters, vests and accessories for everyone! She loves simple clean lines, seamless knits, bold colours, beautiful yarn and the quick thrill of creating kids knits.
New to the designing world, but full of fresh ideas, Jenn Emerson is also one of our prize donors. Her designs are colorful, beautiful and easy to make. Check out Jenn’s designer page to admire her work!
Lady in Yarn
Ela, just like me, designs from Poland. I must say I’m really impressed with her Brioche stitch creations and each piece she makes is a true piece of art. Do visit her designer page! One of these designs may be gifted to you as a prize!
Buttons! Who doesn’t love buttons? Well, I sure do. I love when they can be custom-made to match the yarn, stitch pattern or the knitter’s imagination. And this is what Hannah does. She created buttons especially for my son’s Carabe Kid and now she can make them for you. Do visit her Etsy store to see what prize I’m talking about :-)
Magic Loop is a LYS located in Warsaw and run by two yarn aficionados, Aga and Tomek. They offer a wide range of Malabrigo, Holst and most importantly, lovely Filcolana. They will be offering Eucalan to the prize winners to make sure your knits get proper care :-) Do visit their store to check the fabulous offer of yarn!
So? What do you think? I must say I’d love to participate myself to receive at least one of these prizes :-) And I’m so grateful for such generous friends!
What about a prize from me? I will offer prizes too, don’t worry! It might just take a little bit of time till I show you what exactly I have planned for you (apart from patterns, of course!) so let’s consider this a surprize :-)
Happy knitting everyone!
