Because Spring is here (well, almost). Because I wake up happy every day, and because I want to share that happiness with you all. Because I value you all so much, for leaving nice comments on my blog. Because there is always something that can make you happy. And just because! Who needs a reason for a giveaway anyway ;)

Today you get a chance to win all of these goodies! :)

First up, a lovely knitting pattern from Sarah from Crafts from the Cwtch! It’s not hard to make, even for inexperienced knitters (she promised) and honestly, it’s pretty much the best poncho I’ve ever seen.


Second is a crochet pattern from Annette from My Rose Valley, the well-known Nordic Shawl! I’m still a little embarrassed that I haven’t made it myself yet. One of the best shawl patterns out there!


Third up, this lovely package of buttons from The Button Shack! It has 8 large clown buttons, 8 humungous flower buttons, a rainbow pack with 100 buttons and a 120g bag mixture of shape buttons. Try reading that sentence out loud. Saying ‘buttons’ that many times in a row makes you happy for sure!


And last but certainly not least, the grooviest thing I encountered whilst at Unravel: knit and crochet temporary tattoos from TillyFlop Designs!


All you have to do to win is leave a comment on this blog post, saying what makes you happy these days.

Giveaway is open worldwide, and runs till next week (April 4th).

Good luck everyone, have a great weekend! :)
