Today's Giveaway: Amelia Earhart Bomber Hat Kits!

Amelia earhart by quenna lee 9 close

WEBS  has generously provided enough Valley Yarns Berkshire Bulky for TWO kits, one purple, as shown, and one their Colonial (#40)  Blue. This quick-knit pattern from the Fall Knitcircus, by Quenna Lee, isn't just for kids, though our models were so cute we couldn't resist this shot. I finished one in one weekend, and found the lace intuitive and pattern fun to work.

WEBS was the first place I ever ordered yarn online; I had learned to knit recently, and my friend, who always had good ideas and had discovered a Debbie Bliss baby book, showed me the site and convinced me to go in on an order with her, because we'd get a discount that way. I couldn't believe so many yarns existed, and browsed the pages with growing excitement. Our then-budget didn't allow much wiggle room, so the WEBS' house brand Valley Yarns gave me a chance to try a Merino-Bamboo blend  and make my first lace scarf!

A family-run business for two generations, WEBS was passed on to trusted family friends Steve and Kathy Elkins; who stock almost every yarn under the sun and offer discounts the more fiber you buy! Their much-beloved podcast Ready, Set, Knit, offers yarn insights, glimpses of their family life and interviews with top designers.

  1. How cute is that! My little niece Bella who is quite the explorer herself would be perfect for it. I love any of the Valley Yarns. My Ravelry name is lindseylou and I’m @snowballknits on twitter.

  2. Just looked thru all the lovely Valley Yarns. There’re lots of lovely ones, but the Northfield hand-dyed in Bermuda Turquoise is my favorite.

  3. Not having a yarn shop within an hour, I get my yarn, almost entirely, by ordering online. Unfortunatley, I haven’t used Valley Yarn in the past.
    My DD has been begging for a hat something like this – she would be over the moon!

  4. What a fun hat! I’ve purchased from WEBS since the time they sent yarn snips out in envelopes on a monthly basis. I used to await those envelopes with great anticipation, but the website lets me indulge whenever I like. I’d make the hat for my niece in Arizona.

  5. I’d knit this for my oldest niece (since it looks too big for my daughter, although I’d rather have the opportunity to see her in it daily). Maybe I can hope for a hand-me-down…

  6. Hello, my id is JustAliM on ravelry and I would totally make this for myself and also would teach best friend how to make it as well. I like southwick.
    Thanks
    Ali

  7. I enjoy all of the webs emails mentioning products and the pattern of the week. Excellent marketing.
    I think the next contest should be people writing in comments to tell us how many hours we need for a first visit to WEBS :).

  8. DD’s would both love these hats! They are adorable. My favorite VY is Northampton–I like the worsted and it’s bulkier sister : )

  10. I love the Valley Yarns Amherst – it really knits up nicely and gives a defined stitch! I think my coworker would love this in purple and it would one more Christmas present checked off 🙂

  11. Love the bomber hat and would love to make one for myself, for once! My favorite yarn from WEBS is Kristin Nicholas’ Nashua Yarn, even though it is crazy expensive…but oh so soft!

  13. Valley Yarns Charlemont Kettle Dye Burgandy is what I’d get if I could. A friend was working with some charlemont recently and it’s divine!
    I’d knit the hat twice, once for myself and once for my niece who loves hats and loves to have matching hats with me!

  14. The bomber hat would be the bomb for my 16 yr. old grand-daughter who lives in Sydney NSW Australia. She always looks forward to the packages grandma made and is learning how to knit herself. *s*

  15. The perfect hat to wear while climbing and zipping through the trees on the Adventure and Challenge Course in the woods at Echo Hill Outdoor School in Worton, MD.

  21. I would love to win the hat pattern/yarn to make for me. Unfortunately I’m allergic to alpaca though, so I shall hope instead for a runner up prize of the pattern collection.

  22. I can think of a number of friends and family that would love this hat, I kinda want the patterns collection just as much. My ravelry name is lgesin and I’m @lgesin on twitter.

  24. I am lucky enough to be able to VISIT WEBS regularly… & now I travel past the exit 2 times per day! This brings on a daily temptation… Do I stop as a reward to me because I had a hard day? Or do I stop as a reward to me for a great day? Either way I am inspired and motivated! My fav is Northampton altho I also like Shelburne and Charlemont!

  25. The most curious thing happens every time I happen to be driving the Mass Turnpike towards Albany. My car suddenly veers off I-90 West and heads North up I91 to Northampton. Next thing I know, I’m wandering the aisles of Webs, not emerging until I have spent the equivalent of a month’s grocery money and lugging several bags of fuzzy fibery goodness. It’s bizarre…and it has happened more than once, believe me.
    Valley Yarns are a terrific bargain – I have some beautiful deep dark forest green in Colrain that I’m planning to use for a sweater for myself.
    I’d love to make these hats as Christmas presents for my two DILs. Just their style!
    I am nhoran on Ravelry.

  26. Hi I am Joydow on Ravelry. My girlfriend would love this that. I am going to teach her how to knit it. I love all the valley yarns.

  27. Hi! I’m knitcentral on ravelry, and my favorite Valley Yarn is Northampton. I’d make this hat for my daughter–it looks like a fun knit.

  28. I just love the hat and was looking for a pattern, so my granddaughter and i could have matching hats-and you picked our two favorite colors.
