Contest Time Again!

Hey everyone - it's that time I know you love - time for a CONTEST!!! Woo hoo!!!

I know I might be a little prejudiced but this contest has some AWESOME prizes and it is so easy to enter. Most of you know we have started up Amia Yarn Company and started our Grand Opening promotion a few days ago. Well, we want to give away some stuff too as a part of the grand opening festivities. Here's how you can enter:

1. You get your name in the drawing pot once for posting the contest on your website or blog. You can use this button with the URL address for this blog post. Just email me at theknitwitch@gmail.com with the URL of where it is.


2. You can get your name entered a second time by going to the website, www.amiayarncompany.com, and then emailing me the color name of any yarn product on the site.
3. You can get your name entered a THIRD time by sending me a picture of ANYTHING you have knit out of alpaca or spun from alpaca roving (alpaca blends are ok too). I'm not going to do anything with the pictures except look at them so no need to worry about your pictures being used for any other purpose. I want to see what kinds of things you have made with alpaca and you want your name entered in the contest three times, right?
4. You can only be entered a maximum of three times.

There will be four prizes determined by a drawing of names.
- First place is 5 SKEINS of hand dyed 100% alpaca in colorway "Butterscotch".

- Second place is a $40 gift certificate for Amia Yarn Company good for any purchase (cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount).
- Third place is a $20 gift certificate for Amia Yarn Company good for any purchase (cannot be used in conjunction with any other discount).
- Fourth place is free shipping on any order from Amia Yarn Company.

So, what do you think? Easy, right? The contest starts now and will go until July 31st at midnight. Winners will be posted the first week of August. Good luck!!!!

I have added your contest link to my blog

Heading off to look at the colors in the store now. And will email you.

As for what I have knitted, I am sad to say nothing yet, finances keep me from trying all the yarns I want to, but I hope to soon. Maybe I'll win and then I can try some for sure.

Oh I'm gonna have to check out those yarn bowls, neat idea!!

I've posted on my blog and linked you and the yarn co., but afraid I haven't crocheted or knitted with any Alpaca yet. I do have a project that requires lots of it but haven't gotten yet. :( I'm ready to try though! That butterscotch look syummy!

Good luck to everyone!

Wow. Great Contest! I got a bit confused cause I didnt see the big Shop our store sign on the Amia site and found my way over to your Knit Witch Yarn store instead.

On the Amia Site = I realy liked the cool color of Light Brown - 3 Ply Bulky alpaca blend yarn (but I wasnt sure this was the right name for it and couldnt find another name for it anywhere. Lucky me I saw your featured product was also earthy brown tone it was called Summer Wheat.

I dont have a blog but I'm OhAmy on Ravelry if you want to check me out. Thanks for the contest and I'll try to find that alpaca project. just need to confer with my Projects

I love the fingering weight "Iced Java" - I bet that would make a wonderful shawl.

I've sent you two emails. I'm really hoping to win - because until I do, I can't share pictures of what I've made with alpaca, as I've never made anything with alpaca!
