Snow Day Giveaway! Freia Fine Handpaints Obliqua

I am snowed in with my children today, and I suspect many other knitters are similarly impaired by the snow. It seems like a perfect time for a giveaway!

Tina of Freia Fine Handpaints wants to give a Knitty reader a kit for her Obliqua cowl pattern in the new Knitty.

You will get two  Freia Fine Handpaints Merino Fingering Shawl Balls , one in Charcoal and one in Dirty Hippie, the same color combination in her pattern.

I think everyone deserves a gift this time of the year, but only one lucky reader will win.

Our usual rules apply: Leave a comment on this post between now and midnight eastern time, Friday, December 16th. One comment will be chosen at random to answer a skill testing question. If the commenter answers correctly they will win the Freia kit. If you have already won a prize from us this year, please do give other knitters a chance. Giveaway value $66.00

Happy Knitting & Good Luck!

    Snow sounds so much better than the grey rain of the day! Thanks for beautiful colors to brighten the day.

    I always love a little (or big) pop of color in winter, especially when it’s dreary outside, and most everyone in the NYC area is dressed in black or grey from head to toe. This is a gorgeous kit.

    Lots of snow here too. Just the right thing to take away the blahs and make us think of the Caribbean! Count me in.

    I love this! I have a skein of Dirty Hippie in laceweight that I’m (slowly) making into a shawl. Something a bit quicker to knit would be marvelous.

  5. Emmie

    I am just discovering the utility cowls. Cover the breezy gaps while providing another opportunity to feel wooly softness!

    That’s a beautiful cowl. Thanks for featuring this pattern. So nice to see a more unusual gradient pattern.

  7. Bonnie

    So pretty! Thanks for hosting the giveaway. We had our first real snow yesterday. It’s beautiful, but people certainly have forgotten how to drive…

    Love this pattern, and the fabulous models showing off the cowl make it even better! Would be thrilled to be able to knit it in the original yarn.

  9. Emily

    I’m curious to find out what the skill question is. I wonder if this pattern would be good for scraps of handspun.

  10. Candi Derr

    I adore Freia Handpaints yarns and pet it every time I see it but have not had any of my own yet. Would LOVE to win this yarn and pattern!

  11. Stacy Mates

    With all the sledding I did with my kid on our snow day, a spare warm cowl sounds just about ideal!

    Oh so beautiful, so perfect as the polar arctic cooks had just rolled in and looks to stay awhile. Just the thought of it, cozy everything, some tea or cocoa, a little music on low and this. As perfect way to spend a snowy cold day indeed. Thank you for the opportunity.

    I want to knit all the things right now including this amazing cowl, but alas I have nothing close to the Dirty Hippie colorway in my stash. I would be one happy camper if the giveaway gods awarded me this kit.

    It would be lovely to win such beautiful yarn and pattern. Maybe this will be the lucky comment! 🙂
