Will You Be One of Three Lucky Knitters?

This could be YOU in YOUR LYS!

We interrupt this broadcast of the Knitting Daily/Interweave Knits Winter 2007 Gallery Series to ask you this all-important question:

What would you buy if someone gave you $300 to spend at your local yarn shop?

This is not a theoretical question, my yarn-loving friends. This is For Real. Interweave Press is giving away gift certificates for a shopping spree at the yarn shop of your choice. Three of you lucky folks will win one of the following in a random drawing: first prize wins a $300 spree, second prize wins a $200 spree, and third prize wins a $100 spree.

(Go enter the contest. Then come on back to share a few good Yarn Fantasies with the rest of us.)

All right, now that you know it's a REAL question, let me repeat it so you can start thinking about what you would do with your winnings:

What would you buy if we gave you a $300 shopping spree at your favorite local yarn shop? How about a nice $200 spree? Or a $100 spree?

Be still my heart.

What would you choose?

Well, no. Not be still MY heart, because I, as Knitting Daily Ringleader, cannot, of course, enter the drawing, not even under a false name. (Think about this. Every local yarn shop owner from here to Estonia has my photo. There's no way I could sneak in with one of the Yarn Spree gift certificates and try to pass myself off as Someone Not Sandi. Especially not when I headed straight for the anything-silk-and-purple section. Right there, I'd be caught red-handed. Or rather, purple-handed…)

But for the rest of you: Be still your hearts. Imagine it. A gift certificate for $300 is in your hand, and the entire yarn shop is your oyster.

A girl can dream, though. Even though I can't enter the drawing, I can live vicariously through all of you. Tell me what your shopping spree would be like, and why your local yarn shop is the best one there is.

Next week: The Ivy League Vest Gallery, and more!
