Genet Giveaway II -- Aecor Shawl & Anzula

The second week of the Kickstarter has begun, and that means you have another chance to win an awesome pattern + the yarn to make it here on the blog! All you have to do is either donate or spread the word about The Genet Quarterly! You can spread the word by posting on Twitter, Facebook, or your blog -- link me in the comments or tell me your Twitter name / Facebook name so that I can find the post. If you have donated you are already registered as an entry, and you can gain extra entries by spreading the word.


This week's pattern is the Aecor Shawl, by Mary Catherine Black. The pattern is designed for Anzula Cloud, a light fingering weight, nylon-cashmere-merino yarn that is SUPER squishy and soft. You'll win a copy of the pattern and a skein of Cloud in a gorgeous neon green color that I haven't seen anywhere else! With neons being so popular this year, you'll be ahead of the trend with a fun and funky shawl in this color.

For those of you who don't knit, I wanted to add a little extra option. If you donate to The Genet Quarterly (any amount), you are entered to win a custom-knit, custom designed hat by me! I will call you or skype you, sketch your perfect hat, and then knit it up in the colors of your choosing. All you have to do is donate to be entered to win!


  1. I love the idea and I wish my budget included any extra so I could help out financially, but it doesn't. So I tweeted about it!/Sheila_OKeefe/status/202793985398407169

    Will you be putting out a call for knitting designs when you get the magazine going? I'm on a geometric kick at the moment and would love to submit.

  2. Hey Sheila! I sent you a message via twitter but yes, we are acception submissions right now and more information can be found in our Ravelry group --
