a Rafflecopter giveaway


  1. Did any of the winners even do the CAL? There are not many pictures posted. Would sure love to see everyone’s! Congratulations to the Winners.

    • Thank you, I thought I was being “touchy” lol But I just had to say it.

      • Yes, I thought the rules stated that you had to post a picture. I guess that the pictures did not really matter as much as I thought. I am new to these contests but I am having fun with them so I guess that is all that is really important. :) Enjoy your projects and your holidays.


        • I see which one is yours now and it is beautiful.

    • Thank you for your interest in Design Wars Tammy! Photo submissions for this Mystery CAL were not mandatory as an entry option, but merely an extra option toward winning a pattern from Unravel Me. Our CALs are meant to be fun, and participants may follow, share and participate as they like :) Our giveaways on the blog are ran by rafflecopter, and are quite fair in determining winners. Thanks again for your interest in Design Wars, I hope you continue to enjoy our forum!

  2. Has anyone tried using your remaining 2 balls of RedHeart Shimmer to make a second stocking in the reverse colors? I am just wondering if there is enough yarn before I attempt.
    Fun project!

    • Yes, there should be enough to do reverse colors. I had enough – unless you have a ball that may have been short some yardage, you should be good.

      • I think a different colored toe or heel or both would be cute.

  3. That was fun. I cannot wait for another one :)

    • Did you post a pic? I would love to see your completed Stocking.

      • Yes I did. It is #2 above, the purple and cream colored one.

  4. Working on part 2 and having some difficulty with the count.

    • I finally finished yesterday after ripping the toe area out several times due to losing count and which row I was on. My husband does not quite understand that when I am counting, not to talk to me, lol. Anyway, if even one stitch is in the wrong place or the count is off even by one, it warps the entire thing. Keep trying, you will get it. Unlike many patterns that have a little room for a miscount here and there, this one does not…I have to admit that I was glad to finally get this one done. I want to make some more for gifts though so I am glad to have had the experience…Good luck to you :) Andi J.

    • Karen,

      Did you see the video I put together? The link is on top of Part 2, and that may help. :)

  5. Done, last night and ready to start on another!

  6. Do you want us to post a final picture when complete?

  7. Almost done.

  8. I just finished the first half of Part 2 and I must say, I DO feel like a rock star! :)
