sponsor spotlight

I'm declaring my first month of sponsorship here on Minimalist Knitter a complete success - a few lovely and amazing folks joined in on the fun, trusting me to treat their ads right and hopefully bring them a bit of business.

Now that the month is a bit more than half over, I'd love to introduce a few of them to you, in case you haven't clicked over from the sidebar yet!

Secret scarf small

Kelly over at Disaster Movie Knits had this to say:
I design disaster-movie-worthy knits, in other words, knits that you would want with you if you found yourself in a disaster movie situation. Imagine fleeing from asteroids and how glad you’d be if you had a scarf with a secret compartment to stash your valuables! As well as being useful in a disaster movie, all my designs are knitable while watching disaster movies. Beautifully uncomplicated! Besides having an over-active imagination, I’m an aspiring minimalist, a mom of 3-, 4-, and 6-year-olds, obsessed with buying an Airstream trailer, and I live in Seattle.

Kelly is graciously offering up some goodness to Minimalist Knitter readers this month ... here's how you can win:
I’ll give away a free pattern of their choice to 3 Minimalist Knitter readers. To enter, just sign up for free email updates from my website here. On July 1st I’ll randomly select three new subscribers to choose their favorite pattern for free. Since I have over ten patterns coming out by the end of this year, the winners will have until January to pick. Everyone who signs up for my email updates will get immediate access to a free download of my ebooklet: Shorten the Knitting Learning Curve.

Meet Maggie, of Gussy Sews!
Hi there -- my name is Maggie Whitley and I'm the owner/designer of Gussy Sews. I spend equal time working on my blog and my shop. On my blog you'll find updates on my handmade shop, tips on how I left my day job 1 year ago to focus on my business, and different prompts/projects that help build a handmade community of inspiration & adventuring. Interested in what fills the "shelves" of my shop? All sorts of sassy, girly, colorful accessories: tote bags (3 different sizes), zipped pouches, eReader cases, headbands -- all sporting my signature ruffle.
