This month’s giveaway is another Etsy seller who, when seeing her products, we just had to ask if she’d partner with us. We were delighted when she said yes! Like last month there is the opportunity for 2 winners, Robin has been kind enough to giveaway 2 sets of her handmade resin buttons!!

A transplanted ‘country girl’, Buttons By Robin grew organically through various crafts Robin found herself drawn to. From painting to jewelry making, she found herself always going back to making buttons. Much like any passionate crafter she was drawn to the need to create and experiment, and it was through experimentation that she found a way to create handmade resin buttons that were durable and most importantly washable. With the popularity of her buttons, Robin has begun to work with other Etsy sellers and graphic designers, giving them the opportunity to reach a wider audience by using their images on her buttons.

2 Random Winners receive: 
1 set of 6 resin buttons (small size) in the design of their choosing

To Enter:
Buzz over to Buttons By Robin Etsy store,and then comment on this post “what you’d be inspired to knit or crochet using Robin’s buttons”. This will enter you into the random drawing. Entries must be received  by March 9th. Simple as that!

Featured Yarn: Vanna’s Choice in Taupe

With curly hair, a busy work schedule and winter doing it’s thing, a headband that doubles as a chic neck warmer seemed like the perfect pattern to offer up in January.  It’s perfect to glam up that quick ponytail.  Inspiration comes from quite the variety of places, from beautiful movie stars of an earlier era, to runway looks of today, to vintage pattern photos to YEP, that’s right, Slick Watts circa 1979 Seattle SuperSonics.  You must forgive me, I grew up in Seattle and this team and especially this guy with his jaunty ever-present headband captivated the city as they brought home the only men’s professional sports championship this town has seen since, well, ever.  (heavy sigh over the Seahawks here).  Click here to download.
