The scent of dried tobacco, wrapped around the golden amber of barrel-aged whiskey...does it get any better? I'm not a smoker, nor do I encourage smoking.
But I do have fond memories of how my grandfather always smelled of dried tobacco when he would take us to McDonald's for an ice cream cone. Which was every single day! He would round up all of my brothers, sister, and cousins and take us on outings all the time. Looking back, I can't imagine my dad or husband taking on up to 10+ kids alone for an outing. To the movies, the ice rink, the park, the swimming pool, you name it.
One time, he loaded us up in the car, drove for about an hour, and then stopped at a pay phone to call my mom and grandma to tell them he was taking us to visit our cousins in the Quad Cities.
Just like that, no plans, free like the wind. Handsome devil, wasn't he?
I smile just thinking about all the adventures and trouble he got himself into. Like the time he took the train all the way across Russia during the Cold War. Or hopped on a plane to visit us at the air base in Guam without telling my parents (or grandmother!) first. We could easily write a book!
Hence the inspiration for our Whiskey & Cigars colorway that was made especially for Brews N' Knits 2014. We have a few of the kits left, so why not pass along the fun?
Enter to win a Beer Koozie Kit which includes: 1 skein Whiskey & Cigars Top Shelf Sport Yarn, 1 mini-skein bare Top Shelf Sport Yarn, and our Beer Koozie pattern.
And the best part is that it doesn't take very much yarn to make the Koozie, so you have plenty to make something else too, like a cowl, hat, or socks! (though it is always appreciated!).
Contest ends on June 10 at midnight, and a winner will be drawn at random on June 11. You can earn multiple entries in the following ways, and no purchase is necessary
