As promised, I'm finally getting around to my Spring Yarn Giveaway. It's not my blogiversary or my birthday, but it is that time of year. This time two years ago, I was just learning to knit and it was all I wanted to do. This time last year, I was fairly obsessed with dyeing yarn and I regularly stayed up way past my bedtime experimenting with various yarns and food dyes. This year, I'm learning to croshay and if I hadn't been distracted by the dye pot all weekend, I'd probably have my ripple afghan well underway by now.
I will put the names of everyone who comments on this post into the drawing for all three of the yarn prizes, however, you will be entered twice if you offer a suggestion for a colorway name for one of the yarns I dyed and you'll be entered three times if you offer suggestions for both of my yarns. The third yarn was not dyed by me and already has a name, so I'm just throwing it in for fun.
This yarn really surprised me. I didn't think it would look this good all skeined up (I'm still not that great at making skeins, but I'm working on it). Of the yarns I dyed last weekend, I think it's the best. These are each 185 yard skeins of superwash 100% merino fingering weight yarn.
This is the yarn I thought I'd like the best, and it's okay, but I find it a little bit too bright. I think it would make really cute socks for a little girl or someone who likes bright colors. Again, these are 185 yard skeins of superwash 100% merino fingering weight.
Yarn # 3 is from Spritely Goods. The colorway name is Spring is Here! and it's 280 yards of superwash sport weight goodness.
I'll draw names sometime after noon (CST) on Monday, May 7, so you have until then to either comment or if you're shy, email your suggestions to me at yarntootin at yahoo dot com.
