A new month & fall….

A new month & fall is upon us. Here in Colorado the days are warm & the nights are cool. The Aspen leaves have turned into fall reds & yellows and the prairie grasses from green to brown. Winter is right around the corner. It’s time to think about cool weather knitting.

And to help you do that I am hosting a Fall Knitting Extravaganza! To kick it off, I am giving away a soft cover copy of:

The Perfect Finish

The Perfect Finish

This book if chock full of techniques to guide you toward more “perfect finishing” of your knitting. It also includes articles on fitting techniques, shaping techniques and embellishments for knitted items. And, there are five featured patterns for using the techniques in the book ~ my “Serene Tunic” is one.

So how do you enter? Simple – just subscribe to my blog! (Subscription widget is at the top of the right hand column.) Entries will be accepted through October 30th, with the winner chosen by a random number generator and notified on October 31st, 2010. The winner will be announced here and I will send them notice by email. Since this is a book – a real soft cover book – the winner will need to provide a shipping address so I can send it.

Continuing with our Extravaganza, I am also really happy to announce my NEW customer loyalty program…….RoseBud ~

RoseBud is simple and easy to participate in ~ for every 5 Desert Rose Designs patterns you buy – you get to chose a 6th one FREE! So once you buy 5 patterns – you get the 6th one free, buy 10 patterns – get another free one, and so on. Like the RoseBud that grows into the beautiful rose, as my design line grows – my customers can “grow” their collection of Desert Rose Designs patterns ~ we grow together. You can read the rest of the program details by clicking here – RoseBud. (Patterns already purchased count toward your total.)

And fall knitting wouldn’t be complete without thinking about transitional garments and holiday gifts! So take a look at these patterns….

  1. Will you be including your already subscribed readers? I’m pretty sure I’m subscribed as I get your emails…
    Of course even if I don’t win I’ll be getting that book… I love your Serene Tunic pattern! So pretty! And flattering.

    • Hi Kathleen,

      Subscribing to my blog is different than subscribing to my newsletter, so in order to enter the contest you do need to subscribe to my blog. While my posts have not been regular in the past – I will be ‘blogging’ every Friday morning now on a wide variety of topics, mostly knitting related but some personal so we’ll get to know each other.

      I would love to see you have a chance to win “The Perfect Finish” so pop on over and subscribe today. And good luck!

      Sincerely, Jean Clement
