Cosy*. A word for keeping warm. A cosy sweater, cosy socks, cosy muffatees (there's a pair up for grabs here), a tea cosy, an egg cosy (enter to win one). It's a knitter's word, cosy.

That recent rheumatoid arthritis flare up saw two knitting deadlines pass me by and I'm having to rethink my knitsofacto baby knit plans in consequence. I'm no longer sure what's next. Which is actually something of a relief because the fun went out of knitting for a while there and I'd begun to sound remarkably like the White Rabbit in Alice's Adventures in Wonderland ... no time, no time, no time!
I don't like to disappoint - I guess that's a common affliction - so I take too much on. Which is one of the reasons it's taken me a good while to sort this giveaway out. It's weeks since I was lucky enough to win some delightful goodies in Lisa's Bobobun 'Craft it Forwards' giveaway and then committed to crafting something forward myself. But better late than never.
So how does this work? First, entering doesn't commit you to anything, you don't even need to have a blog, but it would be great if the winners could pay the craftsy love forward somehow. If you win and you're not in a position to hold a giveaway yourself maybe you could support a maker and buy something handmade. To enter just leave a comment**. Tell me something, anything. And for a second chance to win share a link to the giveaway - on your blog, twitter, or facebook - and pop back and leave another comment to tell me that you have. Because it's still the holiday season here in the UK I'll leave the giveaway open until midnight BST on Friday August 31st. Two names will then be drawn from the hat. One winner will receive a duplicate of the egg cozy and egg cup combo pictured above and the other will receive a cosy pair of pure alpaca Runrig Muffatees, knitted by me to fit your hands. Oh, and I'll post to anywhere in the world. Good luck :D
* Or cozy, but I'm sticking with the UK spelling. This one's a gift for a little girl who likes a boiled egg with 'solders' for her breakfast every day.
** If you don't have a blog or are a no reply blogger please make sure I have a means of contacting you should you win.
