Win a Pirate's Pearls Sock Kit!

Thank You for entering!

The winner of the Pirate's Pearls Socks Kit is Christine (she was comment #4).

Please contact me at
with your shipping address.

Week three of my anniversary month falls during the release of Johnny Depp's latest Pirates of the Caribbean movie and this week's blog giveaway celebrates his new movie because the featured designer is a huge Johnny Depp fan!

Meet Lucy Hilton, creator of the Pirate's Pearls sock pattern and Johnny's #1 Fan! This giveaway is for Lucy's beaded Pirate's Pearls pattern and 1 skein of Crazy4Dyeing's Bellasock in the Aquarious colorway.

Worked in only one skein of Crazy4Dyeing's Bellasock scallops of pearls, slow wavy cables, and a triple drop jeweled necklace make Lucy's beaded Pirate's Pearls a treasure worth knitting from the cuff down to “X” Marks The Spot. An admirable fit for any pirate (or pirate lover). Knit away Mate!

Meet Designer Lucy Hilton: Lucy is a native Texan who once crocheted and performed many other crafts. She always wanted to learn to knit but could not teach herself how to recover from errors. Years passed and she stumbled upon a LYS that offered classes. She immediately signed up and has never looked back. Sixteen years later she is still knitting strong and rarely has a day with out “knit time” in her life. She’s proud to say she considers herself to be an accomplished knitter. A growing itch to design and a mismatched love for Captain Jack Sparrow led to her first pattern, Pirates Pearls – A Caribbean Sock Treasure; a right and fitting sock.

Lucy has 2 fabulous kids, 3 mischievous cats, and 2 bad dogs and is living and knitting the dream in Dallas, Texas.

Don't want to wait to see if you win this giveaway, the Pirate's Pearls pattern is available as a Pattern only or as a Kit. The Kit includes the Pattern for FREE and 1 skein of Crazy4Dyeing's Bellasock.

There will be 1 winner for this giveaway, no purchase necessary to enter, and the winner will be announced May 21, 2011.

1) I should definitely win this sock kit because my best friend roxxy has been hankering for some beaded socks for years and i've yet to find the right pattern. why does this one fit her best?? SHE IS A PIRATE!!! she lives on a boat and is the best at talk like a pirate day. i only wish she owned a parrot... she has a cat, though. a few cats. cats like shiny things. to please her cats, you ought to give me the kit so i can knit them pretty beaded socks for roxxy's legs and feet.

2) i love johnny depp so much that i went and saw sweeney todd in theaters 3 times. i also saw secret window in the theater 3 times. i'm not going to admit how much money i spent to see te various caribean movies in theater. also, i've been a johnny depp fan since i was wee and saw him get sucked into a bed and chopped to bits. well... not so much fan as i was scared a bed would chop me up to bits "like the guy on freddy krueger."

3)I have rambled on my poorly attended to blog, and only feel bad that very few people read it.

4) just joined
username is grandmastatus

rebelyarnmuse on Ravelry said...

I would love to win the Pirate's Pearls. I love the sock pattern, the yarn colorway, and love bead knitting. Also (blushing) ehemm, my adoration for Johnny Depp knows no bounds for the last 15 or so years. I'm not a limey wench - just a secret pirate lover :) Pearl socks would suit me just right.

RoamingKnitter said...

I love knitting socks and I have loved pirate movies all my life starting with old Erroll Flynn movies on a black & white tv through to the current big screen movies. Who could possible resist a pirate?

Lynn said...

I should win because I am a rebel and pirates are rebels too!

I am not ashamed to admit that I remember when Johnny Depp got his start on a certain little TV show called 21 Jumpstreet. In his movie roles, he really captures the essence of his character and I can pretty much picture him being like each of them in real life.

--- I can still remember the day at a LYS about 7 years ago when I was so desirous of learning to use beads in knitting. One move across state lines, two small business start ups and three more kids (total 6) later, I still haven’t tried beading. This would be the perfect small project to give it a whirl.
--- No time for current or recent movies in my life, but I still love Johnny Depp from the 21 Jump Street Days!!

OMG! Pirate socks! :D
I don't know what it is, but I have such a soft spot for all things pirate. It started when I saw a skull and cross bones cookie cutter, and I just had to get it...

Browsing the interwebs yesterday I came across this design, which I want to incorporate into a wee project on the go bag for when knitting things like socks on the train.

mellowpuff said...

And as for Johnny Depp... I still have some 21 Jumpstreet posters tucked away... :P He is just fab as a pirate.

Teresa said...

I'd love to win this sock kit because I've never knit socks with beads . . .

Julie said...

I follow your blog, I'm your friend on Facebook and I get your newsletter!
I love Johnny Depp to bits. He is such a wonderful actor and isn't afraid to take on very different parts, Sweeney Todd, J.M. Barrie, Mad Hatter, Edward Scissorhands, and of course Jack Sparrow. I think he just keeps getting better with age.

Angie said...

I'm a huge Johnny Depp fan and saw him on Oprah where he invited her whole audience to watch the new Pirates movie with him while he served popcorn and snacks! SOOOOO envious!!! Winning this kit would help ease the pain of not being there : ) Beautiful pattern too!

lorraine said...
