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.
