A Contest!


Oh what fun! a contest. Last week while getting ready for Sock Wars, I made some weapon bags. Un-official of course. (The only thing I'm officially doing with Sock Wars is fighting in it.) Anyways, I made 3, one for me one for my sister and YOU can win the last one.
It's a beautiful pink and green bag measuring 8 1/4 inches high with a flat bottom of 4 inches wide. There's pockets inside for your needles, scissors or anything else you'd like to carry. The bag has a drawstring to close with a push button stopper to hold it closed. You can hang the strings over your wrist and carry the bag along, you could also knit while walking if you'd like. Sound good?
Here's how to get your name in the drawing. (3 ways)

1. Leave a comment on this post
2. Talk about this contest on your blog and send all your friends this way. Don't forget to LMK that you did it.
3. When talking about this contest on your blog link to my etsy store letting people know that later on this week there will be some sock bags (minus the sock wars badge) for sale if they'd like to get their own.


Since it's a Sock Wars
(un-official) weapon bag I will pick a winner on Saturday and Send it out to you. (just to freak you out when it comes)
so what are you waiting for?

YAAAY, Sock Wars! Wow, that's a BEAUTIFUL Bag - Nice Job! I wish I could sew more than patches, hems & buttons. :)

I'd like to enter the contest, please! I'm also "thinggtwoo" at Ravelry, and I found you through the SWIII Group. You said you'd be picking the winner Saturday? You sure you'll have TIME?? The War starts on Friday, doesn't it? T'would be cool to have the bag FOR the War, but then - if I win, I'll be Proud to carry it WHENEVER!

I'm going to put this up on My blog too, and link back here, and to your Etsy store - probably later tonite. Thanks for the Great contest, and Good Hunting in the War!

What an awesome idea. I love the bag, love the idea of mailing something to someone so they can think they are getting a package. Evil. ;)

I'm going to check my budget. I'd love to own a bag. :)
