From July 31, 2013, through August 24, 2013, save a % off on all my knitting patterns. The % off amount is determined by how many days are left until we leave. For example, on July 31, 25 days are left until we leave, so you’ll save 25%. % off amount is valid from midnight through 11:59pm central time each day.

Or, take a chance! On Sunday, August 25, & Monday, August 26, 2013, we’ll be traveling to Scotland. On those 2 days (midnight on August 25 through 11:59pm on August 26 central time), a special offer is available but I’m not telling you what it is. A % off? A certain $ amount off? A buy 1, get 1 offer?

Will you chance it or buy now when you know what the % is? The coupon code for this entire event is ScotlandOrBust You can use this code numerous times so buy one pattern now, buy another later, gift a pattern to a friend, the possibilities are endless.
