Birthday Competition: Win with p/hop

For the last two p/hop birthdays we’ve held a blog-a-long in which you gave us a blog post as a present. This year we are giving you the chance to win a present from us and some of the wonderful yarn sellers who support p/hop.

When I visit yarn festivals a lot of the lovely vendors donate prizes for raffles. As we don’t always have a raffle at shows and as many of you can’t make it to knitting shows I’ve collected a wonderful stash of gorgeous, squishy yarns and other knitterly goodies which you now have a chance of winning!

While I was putting together the competition I initially thought about just holding one competition, but as we’ve got so much lovely yarn and books and with the festive season practically upon us I thought I’d spread out the love, the 12 days of p/hop if you will, so you have a chance of winning a super treat for yourself in the run up to Christmas.

So here is how it will work: Every week day, starting tomorrow, I will post a question here on the blog. All you have to do is email me the answer and we will pick a lucky winner at random.  Each day will have a different prize! There will be at least 12 competitions to enter giving you lots of opportunities to win though you will need to be quick as some competitions will have a short deadline!

Come back here tomorrow for you first opportunity to win something special.

To keep up-to-date with the competitions follow us on twitter.

We are still accepting prizes so if you would like to donate something please get in touch via email p-hop@london.msf.org. A big thank you to everyone who has donated a prize.

Win a brand spanking new mp3 player!

A little while ago, the people at Sony made a donation to MSF’s work. This in itself is not interesting to you of course (although very generous on their part). The point is that at the same time they donated a Sony mp3 player for us to do with as we wish (as long as it raises funds of course).

When I heard this, I snuck, ninja-like, into the fundraising department and liberated the little machine for you p/hoppers! Obviously, you can’t knit with it, but it’s great if you want to listen to your favourite Elton John/Meatloaf/Leon Lewis/Richard Cheese (delete as appropriate) album while your needles fly on that latest p/hop pattern…

What do you need to do? Well, nothing really. Basically, anyone that makes a p/hop donation on justgiving in the next two weeks (before 3rd May) will be added into the pot and then a name will be drawn at random. So basically, if you downloaded a pattern or you p/hopped some yarn or even if you just meant to donate out of pure good-heartedness and haven’t got round to it yet, do it soon because you have to be in it to win it.

By the way, I don’t know a huge amount about mp3 players, but what hi-fi say it’s “the best non-Apple ultra-portable we’ve seen”, so it must be a good one. Click here for the model and details. It’s a silvery coloured one…

Good luck!
