First off, congratulations to Elizabeth for winning our second giveaway! She has been emailed and will hopefully soon be claiming her prize.
Now I am going to announce the prizes for our 3rd and 4th giveaway, which, in a little twist, will be condensed into one HUGE giveaway! On August 27th, I will announce winners 3 and 4 of the Nine Rubies Blog Giveaway! The reason for this is that I have decided to move back to New York, and 8/27 is my last day at the store. I will miss Nine Rubies and all the fun I’ve had here, but my homeland is calling.
Anyway, let’s get on with it! The first prize is:
A notions case by HiyaHiya, one skein of Malabrigo Rios in Purpuras, a sampler pack of Shibui yarns, size US 9 ebony Lantern Moon circulars 40″, size US 4 32″ bamboo HiyaHiya needles, a moisturizing bar by Lavishea, and one Clover needle gauge.
The next prize is:
One skein of Eclipse by S. Charles, a 3 yarn sampler of Rooftop Yarns, one skein of Malabrigo Worsted in color Sotobosque, a Lantern Moon project bag, one 47″ size US 9 stainless steel by ChiaoGoo, and one cool magnet!
These are some great prizes, right? I wish I could be eligible!
To enter this giveaway, you can answer one of two questions:
1. When you visit a yarn shop, what about it makes you want to come back again or what makes you not return?
2. When(if) you buy yarn online, do you ever wish they would offer a service to wind it for you? If so, how much would you be willing to pay for this service?
Good luck to everyone! Only one entry per person, please. Check back August 27th to see if you’ve won!

Here it is: give away numero due!
What we have here is a skein of Malabrigo Rasta (super bulky wool in color “Piedras”), a set of double pointed 6″ US 2 needles by HiyaHiya, one US 6 interchangeable needle tips by HiyaHiya, an 18″ cord to go with your tips, one skein of Zealana Kauri (fingering weight, 60% Merino, 30% possum, and 10% silk) [the color is a medium purple - the color didn't show up so well in the photo], a knitting bag by Della Q, and a cool tool by Boye that is a gauge check, and needle and hook check and a yarn and guage recommender (all in one). Not too shabby, eh?
To enter into this give away, the rules are changing just a bit. Instead of writing just ANY comment, please tell us what your favorite non-superwash 100% Wool worsted weight yarn is (besides Cascade 220). It does not have to be a yarn we sell at the store. Just your all-time favorite. Also, you will be disqualified from the giveaway if you enter more than once (ie write more than one comment). I didn’t disqualify anyone on the last contest, but I realize now it will make everything more fair if everyone has the same odds of winning.
Good luck to all! We will be announcing the winner of this contest on Friday, August 5th.

I’m sure you must be wondering – it’s almost the end of the day on the West Coast already!
Sorry for the delay. We got a big Malabrigo shipment in today and spent hours labeling the skeins and putting them nicely on the shelves (wow, you should see our shelves!).
So, back to the matter at hand! The winner was chosen via a random number generator (namely, this one), and it settled on…..
Congratualtions, Lilian! I will be contacting you via email soon to get your mailing address! And thank you all for entering the contest. For all the non-winners: don’t worry, there is a consolation prize….Giveaway Number 2!
Tune in Monday for the official announcement!
