Relaunch

Today's the day of the Blog/Store Relaunch Extravaganza!!! Just for fun go type to the new Vivid Creation Fibers website. Don't worry I'll wait.

Nice, right? I like it very much indeed. Especially the sheep, he really makes the logo :)

Today I'm also taking on a new name, much like a married woman. In fact you could say I'm marrying the blog and the store and my charity group and all my fiber related content. But enough with the metaphors. My new Twitter and Ravelry name is VCFibers. Nothing really changed other than the name. I still have the same friends and followers, I'm just going by a new name now that more accurately reflects my "brand."

So, to help spread the word and to make sure that you, my dear loyal followers, are still playing along at this game I call "Melissa Blogs About Knitting," I have devised a little giveaway.

Up for grabs are the following:
1 skein of Vivid Creation Fibers sock yarn in the Captain Planet colorway, 1 skein of Vivid Creation Fibers sock yarn in the Trick or Treat colorway, 1 copy of Fabulous Felted Hand Knits, 1 copy of dominKNITrix, and 1 copy of the Big Book of Knitting

How do you enter to win? Simple. Do one or more of the following.

1. Post a comment here. It can be about anything: your favorite color, your best memory of me, what you would name the sheep in my logo, what you had for breakfast, your dream job...anything.

2. Follow me on Twitter. Come back here and leave a comment telling me you follow me on Twitter. Include your Twitter name so I can follow you back. If you already follow me, leave a comment telling me so.

3. Go to the store. Come back here and leave a comment telling me your favorite product.

4. Join my Ravelry group. Come back here and leave a comment telling me you joined. If you are already a member, leave a comment telling me so.

5. Become my friend on Ravelry. Come back here and leave a comment telling me you friended me. If you are already my friend, leave a comment telling me so.

If you do all five or just one. It's up to you. Each one you do, though, will get you an extra chance to win (up to four chances). Just make sure that you come back here and leave a comment. The comments will close on Wednesday, May 5th at midnight so make sure you enter before then.

Please feel free to spread the word, the more people who comment the better!

Thank you for all your support!

Ooh! Cedar Key is a beautiful colorway! Colors go so nicely together, makes me wish I'd dyed that myself. Truly a treasure.

Congrats on the "New You". I already follow you, on the blog and Twitter. Enjoy your new space.

Mimi said...

OK, so to leave a comment for an entry. What to tell you? OK, I am just re-launching myself after the worse case of second sock syndrome bought on by the fact that I lost my entire 6-size set of DPNs. Also, I have a cuddly Monkey called Egg.

Mimi said...

Also, I already follow you on Twitter (Eskimimi)

Mimi said...

From your store I'd say my favourite product would be a choice between the Blueberry chill yarn (as it looks like clouds on a post-stormy sky) and the Emerald Isle sock yarn. it may have been different if you asked next week as I am awaiting my first drop spindle, so I'm sure I'll be out looking for fibre soon.

Mimi said...

OK, and now friended you on Rav to (Eskimimi)

Yay, a giveaway! Congratulations on your rebranding, and thanks for sharing the goodness with us! ;D

Stuff for extra giveaway entries:

I am totally already following you on Twitter (that's how I knew about your giveaway ;)) @starncrossbones.

And OMG, my favorite thing in your shop is the Princess Academy roving. Partly for the colors, and partly because I LOVE that book. Shannon Hale is one of my favorite writers.

I've also added you as a friend on Ravelry — I'm Silver. :D

Hurray!

DragonsChest said...

I just retweeted you, per your request!

Heidi said...

I went to your store! As always my favorite item is the stained glass sock yarn.

Heidi said...

I already follow you on twitter as Stringthing2! Though I did abandon twitter for some time, I have recently invited it back into my life. I think twitter and I had an argument about who left the toilet seat up!

Heidi said...

I'm already your friend too! As einsteinslogic on Ravelry. Can't have name consistency. It means the aliens might find me.

...now where did I put my tinfoil hat?

Heidi said...

Just joined your rav group as einsteinslogic too - would have earlier but I didn't know it was there!

Heidi said...

My favorite color is lime green, though lately I've been parital to purple. I think I have color commitment issues.

Being around you reminds me of me when I was you. Well, teaching like you. Lots of frustrations but lots of super happy memories too! Hold on to the good stuff!

DragonsChest said...

>>Heidi: I also love the Stained Glass colorway! It's the yarn I bought over the weekend. :)

Melanie said...

Melissa: I received my cake of Stained Glass sock yarn today. What fast shipping! It's absolutely gorgeous. I'm trying to find a lacey sock patter for it now, but not one that's too lacey. I do want some bits of solid knitting in it to show off the beautiful colorway.

Thank you!!

rebecca said...

Just randomly found you on Blogger by hitting "next blog" - what beautiful yarn!

LISMI said...

HI,
