A Very Woolly Giveaway






Rumour has it it's still summer. I've been waiting for the cooler months to tempt you with a bonnet giveaway. But what the heck - there's enough of a chill in the air in my neck of the woods this evening to warrant some wintry fun.


I've had such wonderful feedback since opening my shop late last year. A gentle, steady start to the sales, but an overwhelming number of clicks. Every day, it seems, a hat of mine features in at least one Etsy treasury. (Don't know what a Treasury is? Here's a beautiful one.) It seems people like to see colourful wool atop cute little heads.

So thrilled am I with how it's all going, I'm currently waiting on a very large yarn order. Very, very large. There will be a few new colours, as well as the lovely wool/alpaca blend I need to finally launch the range of newborn hats I keep talking about.




But in the meantime, let's give away a couple of hats. Two winners will each choose the style, size and colour of their prize. They are available in baby, toddler and kid size, and currently two styles - the Chubby Pixie and the Bumpy Bonnet. I will happily post anywhere in the world.

So if a little head you know needs warming this winter, all you have to do is be a follower of this blog (over there on the right with Google Friend Connect), check out the shop, then come back here and leave me a comment to let me know what colour you would choose if you won, or what colour you think is missing (yes, I know there is no pinky pink there.)

For extra chances to win:

2) Share this giveaway on your blog, Facebook page or even Twitter, I guess, though I still don't know what that is...

Leave a separate comment for each entry, please. I'll draw the winner by random number thingo at the end of next week.

Good luck! 

Entries have closed. Thanks to all who entered. The winners are number 44, Little Wild Moose, and number 8, Bettina Rae.

  1. Ooh this is such a good giveaway! If I won a hat for my little guy I would choose a bumpy bonnet in that sea foam greeny blue- it would be so perfect for cold beachy walks in winter!

  3. Toddler C needs a chubby pixie but I cannot decide what colour! Boys can wear plum right?
    As for missing colours how about a lovely white?
    I just read the book The Mitten with Toddler C before bed and now I am thinking of knitted things as white as the snow!

    I follow your blog.

  8. These have got to be the cutest little bonnets I have ever seen - alas there's no need for them up here in our sub-tropical climate. However if I was still living down in Millthorpe NSW, I would be ordering one for myself! xx

  9. My 2.5 year old daughter would look stunning in the moss green bumpy bonnet if I do say so myself. I am already a follower and new subscriber. Love your knits and photos! xo m.

  10. I've been to your shop a few times trying to decide which one I like for my little girl. There is just too many that I love, but I do keep coming back to the bumpy in watermelon. They are all so sweet though. I'm a follower of your blog xo

  13. My girl was wearing the same baby bonnet until she was three, alas it is too small now. Even up here we get some cold mornings and I love the chubby pixie in teal. mel x

  14. ooooh what a top notch giveaway! We'd LOVE a chubby pixie in watermelon to mix up with the chubby pixie in green (that we already have) just WAITING for the weather to turn crisp so we can get it on!

  15. and I've even logged on to Facebook (ergh) just for an extra chance!

  16. I found it so hard to choose when I brought Emerson's birthday gift! Were I to win a second one and make her head the envy of all the other children at playgroup, I think I would choose a pixie hat in purple.

    So glad to hear the sales are steady and the clicks are numerous. I want to see photos of all that wool when it arrives - in spite of the jealousy that may arise. :)

  17. I have shared on facebook too. It would be cute if one of my friends bubs had a matching bonnet, no? :)

  18. Beautiful work and how wonderful to have such lovely models on hand all the time :)

  19. I know a little one who's head is always cold - she takes after her mama I'm afraid - and it is still mightly cold over here...yes please - if that's OK.

  34. I've been browsing your etsy store a lot of late, after seeing your lovely hats again on the Diapers & Skinny Jeans blog, modelled by little Sofia. Umming and aahing over what to get Everly for winter. I can't decide between the bumpy watermelon or bumpy silver... Though if it came in violet/lilac, my decision would be made!

    ReplyDelete
  35. My little Juno would look very cute in a newborn bumpy bonnet in silver. I just followed your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh what a wonderful giveaway! And so generous to be willing to send a package across the world. We are still in winter over here, so your beautiful hats would be put to use right away. Truly, I love all the colors. If i were to choose for my girl, I'd say a plum bumpy bonnet. And brown looks quite nice on my boy. All your work is wonderful and high-quality--the knitting, the photography, the writing, the mothering. Keep it up (:

  37. I do so love your bonnets Greer. I am picturing my new baby in a straw bumpy bonnet, but would be happy with just about any colour really! x

  55. Oh my goodness, it's all so perfect.
    I adore the thought of your huge yarn order.
    Makes me want to set up a knitting business myself.
    No matter the season it is always bonnet weather here in the morning and night.
    I think should I be so lucky, I'd choose a bumpy bonnet in red or green, can't decide.
    Thanks lovely xx

    ReplyDelete
  56. I can't be sure, but I *think* I'd choose a bumpy bonnet in plum or silver. I don't think you're missing any colours to be honest, it's a lovely palette! But perhaps you could offer custom colours from a swatch...

    ReplyDelete
  57. And now I'm following you on facebook too. Huzzah!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Oh wow Greer thank you so much for such a gorgeous giveaway. I have a sweet little niece who I know would look gorgeous in one of your creations. I love the watermelon bonnet in the bumpy pattern. And I'm a long time follower of this gorgeous blog. Thanks again. xx

    ReplyDelete
  59. Oh wow they are all so lovely! I have a friend who is having a baby this coming Winter I would so love to win a hat for her and her new little one to be. I don't know what gender she is having so maybe I would pick grey as a more neutral colour.

    ReplyDelete
  60. They're so lovely :) I think I'd pick the bumpy bonnet in red if I had to choose.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I already follow your wonderful blog Greer. Luckily I have a wee niece in the UK who would look super cute in your hats as sadly I couldn't get my eight-year-olds' to wear one. I often lament the fact that I didn't knit when my girls were babies, so many lost opportunities :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. I would choose the bumpy bonnet in plum or watermelon! So darn cute!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love the bumpy bonnet in silver (I also love the red pixie hat too). They are all adorable!

  64. Hi! Thanks for visiting my blog today. Thought I'd come by and see yours now. Wow are your hats beautiful, and your photography. I'd like to enter your giveaway with a request for a kid size pixie hat in plum should I happen to win. I'm now following along on google...

  66. Greer- I love your bonnets! I saw the one you made for Sofia (mama is Kate from Diapers & Skinny Jeans) and I just loved it! So nice to find your blog today and check out your shop. I love the sky blue chubby pixie hat...so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Definitely the bumpy in sky blue. Then Kian would be even more edible... x

    ReplyDelete
  68. And I like you (lots and lots) on FB too. x

    ReplyDelete
  69. Um, these are just SO gorgeous! I can honestly say I love all the colours. I think I'd choose the bumpy bonnet, probably in plum. Or straw...OR teal. Maybe a nice dusky rose pink would complement your collection?

    ReplyDelete
  70. I would choose Teal for my little man, it would be gorgeous with his dark hair and eyes! And I think navy would be a really nice colour for the collection. Navy is so smart!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Alas I may be to late, but I am a very happy new follow (after a jolly blog road trip this afternoon) And such lovely knits, my miss would be joyful bounding around this winter in a silver bumpy bonnet.
