Melody's Makings 4,000 Fan Giveaway

           Thank you all so much for being a part of and supporting Melody's Makings.  This time just one short year ago I was a new mother to a one month old and was struggling to figure out how I could stay at home and watch him grow up.  I never imagined that knitting, something I love, could get me to that place!  I am beyond thankful for each and every one of you everyday, so I want to vocalize a huge THANK YOU now - and celebrate with an awesome giveaway!!  I hope you love it.

           I also want to send a HUGE thank you to each of the vendors who have donated to this giveaway!  They are all amazing and you will be so happy you found them!

Giveaway Info:

           Dates: The giveaway will start on Monday April 30th and end on Monday May 7th.  Winners will be posted Tuesday May 8th.

           Prizes:  There is a total of # prizes available!  There are two sections to the giveaway - a photo prop section and a pattern section.  Props are at the top of this post, and patterns are at the bottom.  Please feel free to enter into one section or the other, or both!
