Yes, that's right! This just happens to be the thirteenth edition of Lucky Friday, coincidentally falling on Lucky Friday the 13th! Maybe we should have featured a Halloween Card? Spooky...
Each Friday we feature one of our letterpress cards. Then we’ll choose THREE LUCKY WINNERS to get a free card. Post a comment by 12 p.m. PST the following Thursday, and we’ll announce the winners on the following Friday!
The three winners from last week are (drum roll, please):
Ann, Stephie and Paige L!
We'll contact you early next week to arrange sending your Wiser card.
Now for this week’s edition, one of our letterpress thank you cards:
Artist: Eunice Moyle
Inspiration: Not a monkey's uncle— rather perhaps, a monkey's sweet, coy great aunt?
Who to send it to: A silly little monkey who shouldn't have, or a nifty knitter who's a great gifter.
Ideas we scrapped in favor of this one: It used to say "You Wild, Wooly Monkey!" but we thought it was too open to misinterpretation. And we toyed with the idea of a crocodile crocheting a stuffed crocodile, titled "This is a Real Croc of Knit" but we couldn't think of a soul to we'd be crazy enough to send it to. "All You Needle is Love" also made its way into file thirteen.
Our favorite detail: We wonder if the sock monkey knits sock humans?
Why letterpress? A well-spun yarn in a handwritten thank you letter yearns to be expressed on a letterpress card.
Don't forget to post your comment and check back next week to see if you've won!
