Wow! What a ride this month has been! I’m so glad I joined forces with The Campaign for Wool to celebrate Canadian Wool Month 2021.
This blog post contains the winners of the prizes, an update from Matthew at The Campaign for Wool office that outlines a number of the exciting initiatives the Campaign undertook this month, and my gratitude to everyone who participated in The Campaign for Wool 2021 Knit Along!
Before starting, though, please remember that your 20% discount code to the Sykes & Ainley website is in place until Sunday at midnight!
First, the prizes: The winners were drawn randomly – Staff at The Campaign for Wool choose numbers in the range of the number of participants on the roster, then I matched those numbers up with whoever had that entry on the spreadsheet. The spreadsheet was created as the participants joined in, so it was a “double random” draw.
Collette C. of Williamswood NS is the winner of the Sykes & Ainley scarf
Judy H from Conception Bay South, NL will be receiving the Briggs & Little Prize pack – she’ll be knitting for a while!
The Canadian Guild of Knitters memberships and tool kits will go to
Claire F. from LaSalle, QC and
Holly H from Edmonton, AB
Here’s the update from The Campaign for Wool initiatives – I hope you will take the time to read them – especially the one about the wool drive!
Those are only the highlights with other activities including a national knit-along with the Canadian Guild of Knitters and a pop-up Wool shop from our trading partner Sykes & Ainley sharing their fine woollens with the world.
Again, I want to thank everyone for participating – I will place posts in the usual places – here, on Canadian Guild of Knitters’ Facebook page, and on Ravelry – in advance of next year’s event. I’ll also e-mail any of this year’s participants who aren’t on FB or Ravelry.
Happy Knitting! I now return you to your regular knitting schedule, with thanks.
