love: a giveaway!

did you see that cute scarf i wore yesterday? it was sent to me last week by the super-cute and super-talented caitlin, of knot your granny's knits, and i've worn it almost every day since. 

here's a little background...
Hello, my name is Caitlin! I am a stay-at-home-mom first and foremost, but enjoy the heck out of beautiful fiber yarns. I'm a self-taught knitter and have been knitting for 6 years! I love interesting textures and design. Nothing too busy. Just great color, great texture and great designs. You know those pieces in your wardrobe that you can wear with anything? Those pieces that are so simple and easy to wear, that you can throw on in a rush but still look stinkin' cute at the same time? That's what I like to make. That's what I'm about. 

I'm inspired by nature, fashion trends, interesting textures and fibers, culture, practicality, and sustainability. I value the environment and care about using natural fibers but understand that sometimes allergies and personal convictions (hello my vegan friends!) occasionally call for artificial fiber. 

My attention span and my two babies don't allow me to knit any large projects. Instead, I knit and crochet contemporary and stylish accessories that are nothing like what my grandma used to knit! (Hence my shop name!) I hope you enjoy my store as much as I enjoy making things for it.

i'm so excited because caitlin is giving away one of these gorgeous triangle scarves to you! 
if you can't wait to win, she's also providing 15% off of anything in her store for the daily be readers! (i need, this slouchy hat.)
just enter the code: THEDAILYBE at checkout.


to enter the giveaway, visit caitlin's shop and leave a comment below with your e-mail address. for extra entries, you can mention this giveaway on twitter or facebook. just leave a separate comment linking to your tweet/status.
