On the First Day of Christmas, TanisKnits Gave to Me…

Congratulations to winner Elaine, who had the correct answer of Inaccessible Island Rail!

——————-

Ok, here we go, dear readers! Welcome to the annual 12 Days of giveaways here at TanisKnits!

day1How does it work? I’ll ask a random trivia question each day for the next 12 days. Leave your answer in the comments section (and be sure to subscribe to my blog so your email address shows up and I can contact you) and a winner will be randomly chosen each day. Some of the prizes are digital this year, so readers from around the globe can participate, but be sure to check after each question if it is open to US or international readers only. The winner and answer will be posted on the original post the following day and will be contacted via email. Interweave is generously sponsoring prizes this year, so sit back, answer some trivia and win some great prizes!

Today’s trivia question: Which is the world’s smallest flightless bird?

Today’s winner will receive a free copy of my new book, 3 Skeins or less: Fresh Knitted Accessories, open to US residents only.
