Spring Giveaway

It’s time to celebrate, Spring is here!

And not only that, I’ve just passed 100 posts as well. So, join in on the celebration.

I’ve got three wee prizes to give away. All of them include yarn, and a hand made project bag made by moi.  All the yarns are lovely NZ made yarns, and all come highly recommended.

Let’s have a look. First up is a 50g ball of Naturally Merino et Soie 10ply. The yardage is perfect for a pair of Fetching gloves or other fingerless mitts. It is soft, and wears really well.  Enjoy some delicious TradeAid choc too – they are promoting slave free chocolate this month. Is your favourite chocolate made without slave labour?

Next up: is a 200g hank of Wool Company multicolour Bazaar. A unisex colourway, this yarn felts like a dream, is hard wearing, a real workhorse yarn. And more of the yummy TradeAid choc too.

And finally, a skein of the beautiful, much raved about here, and much coveted Vintage Purls sock yarn. A stunning semi-solid kettle dyed yarn, one of her limited edition colourways (I’d tell you the name, but would have to go in the room with a sleeping baby, and, well, it’s just not worth the risk right now!).  And to knit it up, an 80cm 2.5mm KnitPro Nickle circular needle.

Awesome 🙂 I’m always looking for new blogs to read as I’m a fairly new blogger myself, I think I will add you to my reading list. I had a wee look through some of your earlier posts, and have to say your daughters are gorgeous! I’ve had a look at some of your projects a few times and think your work is amazing – I never noticed then that you had a blog. I look forward to further reads 🙂
