Giveaway – Beaded Cable Belt! – CLOSED

Welcome to my second giveaway! It’s a bit tricky as I mentioned almost a month ago.  Unlike a scarf the size of a belt really limits the people who could wear it.  To fix this I decided to have the giveaway before I actually finish the belt.  This way I can finish it to the size needed by the winner!

The winner will be able to not only pick the size but also has a choice of six different buckles!  The six choices are shown at the end of the post.  Once the winner sends me an e-mail with their size and buckle choose I will finish the belt and mail it out within the next week.

The rules are as follows:

1. The giveaway will run Thursday 11/15/2012 Noon through Monday 11/26/2012 Midnight (US Central time).  Winner will be announced on Tuesday 11/27/2012.

2. To enter leave a comment saying which buckle is your favorite on this post. Comments on any other post will be ignored.

3. For a second entry “like” my Facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/pages/SingleStitch. Be sure to include in your comment that you liked my Facebook (or add a second comment).

3. At least 25 entries are required for the giveaway.  Facebook entries are counted towards this 25. Otherwise it may be cancelled, extended, or rescheduled.

4. The winner will be e-mailed and given 72 hours to reply with a mailing address.  After that a second winner will be chosen.

5.  The belt will be finished and mailed within a week of the winner providing the size and chosen buckle.

6. International entries are welcome.

Here are the standard women’s belt sizes but keep in mind that this is a knitted belt and as such it will have stretch in it unlike a leather belt.  It also has a cinch buckle so the buckle will add length to the belt as well.  The purpose for this belt is decorative as an accessory and not for support.  I’m not sure how much support it could provide with the stretch it has!

  • XXS = 24 – 26″
  • XS = 28 – 30″
  • S= 32 – 34″
  • M =36 – 38″
  • L = 40″
  • XL = 42″
  • XXL = 44″
  • XXXL = 46″

Buckle Options:

Below are the six buckle options.  Sorry for the really bad image quality but I wanted to get this out.  I need to learn how to take pictures without sunlight available now that winter is getting closer.  Please see the image next to the contest rules for the clearest detail on the belt itself.

Knit Picks Endless Summer Contest Runner-Up!

Wow! Knit Pick’s announced the winners for it’s Endless Summer contest today and I was a runner-up winner!  I’m very excited and this was a fun contest.

I have to admit when I first got the e-mail I actually searched online to see if it was some kind of hoax.  Maybe someone had hacked the info for everyone who entered and sent us all an e-mail.  I’m not sure what it says about me that my first thought was that someone was playing a prank rather than that I was actually one of the winners =)

I want to thank my sister again.  If not for her blog with all her pins and for the fabulous red wine sangria she made in Florida I probably wouldn’t have been motivated enough to enter the contest.  She actually went into her computer’s recycle bin to pull out some pics of the wine for me.  I have a great family.

Here are the links to my board if you want to see the full version and the announcement for the other winners.  I loved that game of thrones board (even if for personal reasons I refuse to read more of that series until it’s complete). I will be sure to post pics when I get my prize goodies.  I can’t wait!  Thank you Knit Picks!!
