I have shared many things made by GÃ¼ler Usug, designer and owner of Smiling Knitting before here–I geuninely love her work and I own lots of her stuff! She lives and works (and is expecting her first daughter right now!) in Turkey and she not only makes beautiful handmade things, but is a smart businessperson which I admire a lot.
With Valentine’s Day coming up, GÃ¼ler contacted me about offering a pair of her hand-knit fingerless gloves to my readers. If you type a lot at night, like me–especially during the winter–fingerless gloves need to be in your life. You other bloggers know what I am talking about!
These gloves are hand-knitted with a wool/acrylic blend and are available in any color. I have these lemongrass ones! GÃ¼ler is offering a matching lime-y lemongrass-y pair of these fingerless gloves for one reader.
SmilingKnitting also sells dozens of other original products that get me really excited. How cute are these hats? Clever collar-like scarves? And of course her crocheted heart slippers that I wear ALL the time at work. They live under my desk!
Anyway, these are all great gift ideas for your sweetheart (there are some great offerings for guys on there too) for $35 and under. Skip the roses–get something (if only for yourself) that you can actually use and will make you smile every day.
This giveaway for the fingerless gloves is open to international residents and I will pick a winner on Monday at midnight, so you have a week to enter. Visit SmilingKnitting on Etsy, leave a comment, and good luck! And you boys better enter too. These would be a great Valentine’s Day gift for your mama.
