    Jennie the Potter makes beautiful things! I would love to win one of her pieces!

    Pick me! Pick me! Every knitting pregger lady needs a cute mug or yarn bowl! I just so happen to be one of those ladies (ok well maybe not the lady part – but definitely pregger knitter)!

  5. RichelleCK

    The mug I use at work is a commemorative one Jennie made for the first Sock Summit. Such quality and so stinkin’ cute!

    I have been coveting a Jennie the Potter mug since forever. What fantastic prizes!!!

  23. Cristina

    Oh, those look lovely! I would be ecstatic to be able to use one of them whilst crafting, either to hold my yarn or my coffee.

  24. Kim

    I have a bazillion mugs, but no yarn bowls. That’s a lovely one – who can resist cute little bunny bums?

  35. mellenknits

    I’d love to drink my morning coffee with the bunny every day 🙂 Thanks for another great contest, Knitty!

  36. Elaina

    I’ve been admiring Jennie the Potter’s work since I saw it on Knitty and at Rhinebeck. How beautiful!

  37. Knittingdancer (Teresa)

    They both are beautiful. I will be happy to take either one of them off your hands. Thanks for the chance to win one.

  38. Maureen

    Love them both! I’ve taken part in the stampede to Jennie’s booth at Rhinebeck a few times. Her pottery is stunning!

  39. joan debolt

    To win one of these would make my day they are wonderful. Just did not have funding at the time to purchase one

  40. Angie

    I love the bowl, the bunny is so cute! I had no idea you’ve been around for 10 years.

  41. Reb

    We love clay – it’s our favorite. Uh, after merino and cashmere, I mean, you know . . .

  42. Page

    Nothing could be more awesome than pottery, bunnies, and knitting! 🙂 Happy Anniversary.

  43. Amanda Heyen

    I’m always game for anything with bunnies or knitting. But both, I’m all yours!

  44. Bekah

    Hey, happy 10th birthday, again! I’m one of those old lady types who always tell kids how big they’re getting (duh!) but, my goodness, Knitty, it seems only yesterday you were just a brand new bright idea! And what beautiful presents Jennie the Potter has come up with, for you. And what lovely manners to share with your friends 🙂

    But really, thanks for the blog, the free patterns, and the inspiration you bring to all of us!

  45. Terri

    Either one would match the decor in my studio so well! I don’t really have a “studio” but it sounded good.

  46. Kristen E

    So beautiful! The one time I ran into her at a festival, the only thing I could afford was a little necklace, which I wear ALL THE TIME, but I’d love to have a mug or yarn bowl. <3

  47. Shelly Easton

    I would love the yarn bowl, very since I discovered these little beauties, I’ve wanted one!

  48. Libbi

    when i saw these initially during the anniversary they were sold out and i was so sad. this would be awesome (and i have a large blanket project that could certainly utilize the bowl — friends getting married in the fall — handmade is best) 🙂

  49. nina

    These are so adorable! Love that bunny. I’ve heard so many good things about Jennie the Potter mugs but have never seen them in person…

  50. Megan

    I’ve got my fingers crossed for the mug. Even if I don’t manage to knit as much as I would like with a two year old running around I still drink rather a lot of tea 🙂

  51. Cris Bjork

    I love Jennie the Potter’s work. I keep my favorite bracelet in one of her little tiny bowls that I snagged at Sock Summit.

  52. Susanne Scheurwater

    Who knows what chances I have but I will submit anyway! Love the design on the mug and yarn bowl! Once again, keep up the great work Knitty!! go Canada!!!

  53. Kristin H

    So very cute! Thank you for having her save one of each for a giveaway, it’s a fantastic idea!

  54. Jillian_R

    I love her work and her pieces for the 10th knitty anniversary really ROCK! Great giveaway! Thanks!

  55. Savannagal

    I would love to win either pieces. I’ve admired Jenny’s work for a long while.

  56. aprilshowers

    Oooh, I’ve never seen her work in person but long admired it. I am a former very amateur potter and might still be if knitting hadn’t taken over my spare time!

  57. Hester Sturrock

    Would love to have either one. Its a beautiful day here in Georgia. Of course, in a week or two it will be so hot we can’t stand it!
    Best – Hester

  58. Anna

    These are more than adorable! I love the yarn bowl. Who ever wins is in for a real treat. Just a wonderful giveaway.

  59. Annie Wilson

    It’d be great to have one of those super cute yarn bowls! Or a cute mug to drink my tea out of while knitting on weekend mornings.

  60. Donna H

    Love, love, love!! These items are so cute! I could really use a yarn bowl 🙂 but the mug is also absolutely adorable (and my tea would be wonderful in it). Thanks, as always, for the great giveaway!!

  61. Charlotte

    OOoo! What cute designs! I would love to be able to add either of these goodies to my collection of mugs or yarn bowls. 🙂

  62. Aimee

    Those are super cute and my birthday is in a couple weeks so it would make a perfect present. 🙂

  63. Jennifer

    I am sitting here drinking yummy coffee out of a squirrel Jennie the Potter mug. He is lonely and needs a bunny friend!

  64. LindaR.

    A yarn bowl! I’ve always wanted a yarn bowl…and such a lovely one! Thanks for the giveaway! PS: I love coffee mugs, too 😉

  65. florapie

    Oh my I love that mug! The yarn bowl too, but the mug would get love every day 🙂

  66. Sage Goode

    I love this design … both the mug and the bowl are so cute!!
    I’m taking care of my daughter’s rabbit these days, so I’m rather fond of the whole bunny motif!

  67. Amanda Underwood

    I was going to write something pithy, but the 8 yr old in my heart just keeps screaming “Me, pick me!” with her hand in the air. Darn 8 year olds. ;>

  68. Linda

    You would bowl me over with the mug, and my mug would love the bowl. Either way, I’d be happy.

  69. Elisabeth

    Thanks for this give-away !
    I don’t know why the items make me think about Peter Rabbit from Beatrix Potter !
    Would be happy to get the yarn bowl : less risk to brake than the mug !

  70. Stacey T

    I have ADORED these since I first saw them and they would have a proud and beloved place in my home. YES!

  71. purplepenguin

    Love the bunnies! We have some wild bunnies come to visit, and I think my day is better when I see them.

  72. linda

    Oh, I would love to win that bunny themed yarn bowl!!! The mug is cute, too. 🙂


  73. M.F.Peterson

    LOVE these designs! And Jennie’s work is so beautiful and sturdy – a very good buy 🙂 I hope I win!

  74. Amy Jane

    Oooh, so so pretty – and useful too, a welcome addition either to the tea-whilst-knitting-collection, or the knitting-whilst-drinking-tea collection! Cheers!

  75. Tina_R

    I’m bowled over! Been wanting an out of budget yarn bowl for forever and a day!

    Wish the random number picker could be influenced by my words!! HaHa

  76. Lynn

    What a great giveaway! Would love to win! I have read many wonderful things about Jennie the Potter. Lynn

  77. Melissa

    What a great contest. Jenny the Potter made the gorgeous buttons for my prize-winning knitted vest.

  78. Karrie

    The pottery is too cute, fortunately if I do win I don’t have to choose between them.

  79. Sarah

    Bunnies and knitting are two of my favorite things in the whole world so of course I love these!

  80. Kathy

    I’ve been looking for a yarnbowl for my mother in law. She also collects mugs and is a dedicated knitter. Either of these would be the perfect gift.

  81. sharon

    Both so lovely! So glad you squirlled them away, I would love to win either. Thanks for the chance & 10 years of Knitty too!

  82. Elizabeth

    Thank you once again for introducing us to Jenny the Potter. These just bring a smile to everyone.

  83. Pearl

    I <3 Knitty and mugs and bowls and yarn and anniversaries and Jennie the Potter and and and… Good luck to all, but fingers crossed it's me! 🙂

  84. Keisha

    These are adorable, and I love yarn bowls, replacing the one I recently dropped off a table with the extra-adorableness of bunniecakes would be amazing.

  85. Geraldine Scott

    Oooo…got my eye on that yarn bowl, but I could be happy with the mug as well!

  86. Kathy

    I met Jennie at Meg Swansen’s Knitting Camp last summer. She’s got talent! Thanks, Jennie!

  87. Alli

    Throwing my hat in the ring! Jennie the Potter’s stuff is AMAZING! Would love to be drinking my coffee out of that mug!

  88. G. K. Green

    I remember! I’d like to win one! (OK, truth: I’d like to win both, but that’s just greedy …) Please enter me in the giveaway, and thank you for sharing …

  89. Carol

    Love both of them! Thanks for the opportunity to win one and for the great magazine…

  92. Deb Cameron

    Such beautiful pottery! Would love the chance to own one of theses precious pieces 🙂

  94. Meghan

    That bunny is solo cute! Looking forward to Jennie coming to shall we knit next month.

  95. Linda B

    Coffee mugs I am familiar with, but I had never seen the knitting bowl. How beautiful they are and how wonderful that we have a chance to win one.

  96. amy

    I’m always on the lookout for a great new coffee mug, and this one is adorable. Love the cake with the needles. The yarn bowl is fabulous too. Pick me, please. Thanks for the giveaway!

  97. Jamie Trask

    I don’t enter (or win) contests often, as a rule, but this one would be awesome! Lovely! Thanks for the opportunities you give us. Your contests are the ones I watch for.

  98. hannonle

    They’re so beautiful! And I think I will be claiming reply number 600 so maybe that will be a lucky omen!

  99. Jane Webb

    Happy Anniversary – I’ve been able to use many of Knitty’s patterns and love the rest of your articles – thank you for providing such a great resource! And love the pottery too!!

  100. Debra

    What a cute mug and bowl. Would love to be the home of either one. Thank you for the giveway.

  101. Carolyn

    I love pottery as a matter of fact I try to support local artisans as my dishes are all hand thrown, have several hand made copper wind chimes, hand made brooms and baskets! This would be a welcome addition to all of my household items!

  102. Zaelia

    I have heard of Jennie the Potter AND how popular her table is at fibre festivals. Now I can see why. These are adorable!

  103. sarah

    I missed the chance to order at the time, feeling sunshine inside at the surprise contest, I looove those bunnies!
