If you have not met Liz's patterns before, they're a must see! Liz was on YOTH over a year ago and we did a fun interview back then together.

Liz and Little Red Bicycle have teamed up to bring you a fantastic giveaway: TWO grand prize winners will each receive a half skein of the beautiful Unicycle Lace in the Ursula colorway and a PDF pattern of the stunning Lancet shawl! These winners will be randomly picked as usual. Here's a close up of the yarn!
Two additional winners will chosen based on their answer to Liz's fun question! She talks about it at the end of the part 3 video. Liz will choose an answer and I will choose an answer at the end of the giveaway. Each of the best answer winners will receive a PDF copy of the entire Arch Shawls collection. Good times!!
I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:
1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.
2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 4/8/12. If you could create your own country, anywhere in the world, what would you name it, and where would it be?
You need to listen to the interview to hear Liz's answer, but here's mine: My country would be called Skeinland. The country would be one big farm somewhere that would have an abundance of sheep, yaks, goats, alpacas, bunnies and maybe some silkworms who would all get along and the climate would magically accommodate all of them. We would have plenty of wonderful people there to care for the animals, so us knitters could do what we love best... knit! We'd probably need to invite some indie dyers over too!
I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.
