The gift box includes:
 2 skeins of one of Lion Brand's newest releases, Unique.  Unique is a bulky, self-striping yarn, where each ply is printed in a multicolor pattern so that the yarn creates a bold tweed effect as it is knitted or crocheted.

  1. Great giveaway! Thank you Lion Brand and CGOA.

  2. Loving lion brand more and more. I also have never head of a development day but if there's yarn there I'd want to go.


  3. What a wonderful prise. I have attended two PDD's; they were very informative and helpful to get a career going. This type of career is very hard work and I find it hard sometimes to keep the motivation going. Yarn Companies such as Lion Brand keep the motivation coming. Thank You!! Excellant Yarn!

  4. Love to win this, I am addicted to yarn.

  5. Wonderful! I am going to the PDD and am excited to learn and make some new contacts/yarnie friends!

  6. Getting excited for my first PDD in 3 weeks!! Thanks Lion Brand for sponsoring the day - and for this giveaway! :-)

  7. Isn't it also Lion Brand's birthday? I love their yarn and wish I could make it to NC!

  8. Would love to go to this and learn more about it, as well as make new crafting friends.

  9. So generous of Lion Brand. And oh, how I wish I could get to a professional development day. I'd love to be able to cut back my "real" job and have more success with yarn-related work.

  10. I'd love to go to a PDD to take my crocheting to the next level.

  11. Jennifer Hansen, Marty Miller, Vashti Braha, Lily Chin? (Did I mention Jennifer Hansen????!!!!!) Anything these ladies want to teach, I want to learn.

  12. I would love to win....I have never been to CGOA because I have never heard if it.

  13. If they had one in my area I would probably go! North Florida - Tallahasse area!!!

  14. Oh Lion Brand! Thank you so much for this fantastic giveaway. I've never heard of this professional development convention, but it sounds like something I might like to consider in the future. I wonder where next year's convention will be? Midwest possibly? :D

  15. Would love to go to one, if they had one in my area.

  16. This is great! I'm looking forward to the PDD at the conference. Last time I was able to go was a little while back, but I really enjoyed every minute of it.
