We have a winner!

Hello all!
We have a winner in the first round of our infant hat promotion. Although we only received two entries we feel that it is a good baby step towards building a program we can continue to run for quite some time. Our two entrants were Laurel and Leslie, Laurel took it in a very exciting coin toss. Since Leslie was such a good sport and since I am in charge Leslie will get a $25 gift certificate towards yarn on our website for runner up. Thanks to both of you to take time from the holiday season to support this program. I am sure that we will see many more hats in round two! I will try to get photos of the hats on tonight.

Round 2

December 25th through March 31st.
Send an infant hat in to Coveted Yarn at the address below and each hat (there is no maximum) will count as an entry into our drawing for a $50 gift certificate. Each hat must be received before the deadline to count in this drawing. All hats will be donated to hospitals to give to newborns and their families. We hope to receive a lot of hats. There is no purchase necessary. Since all hats will be donated they will not be returned. If you have any questions please e-mail us at

Nearing the end of our first round!!

Hello all,
We are nearing the end of our first drawing period. Unfortunately we didn't get too many hats yet. We will have a drawing tomorrow morning as promised. We have reason to believe that hats are on their way but won't arrive in time for this contest. As a result we have decided to try another one.

So, All hats received between 12/25/07 and 3/31/08 will be entered into the next round. The winner will be picked at random from all entries. Each infant hat donated will constitute one entry, with no limit on how many you can send in. The winner will receive a $50 credit towards Coveted Yarn purchases! There is NO purchase necessary to enter or win. As long as we receive at least one hat there will be a drawing.

All hats will be donated to local hospitals for the newborn nurseries.

This is a great way to turn some scrap yarn into a "quickie" feel good project. Maybe you need a break from what you are working on now?

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail at

Thanks to all and please spread the word!

Newborn Hat contest

Hello all.

I have received only one hat so far for this promotion. If I receive no more hats than the knitter of that one hat will automatically win the $50 gift certificate for the website. There is no purchase necessary. I know it is very busy this time of year but a newborn hat from some scrap yarn should take no more than a few minutes. It is a nice thing to do as the hats will be donated to Beverly hospital to be given to newborns there. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Here is the lone hat in the contest so far. Deadline for entries is 11:59 PM on December 24th.
Happy knitting!!!
