This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for entering!!!
Happy Sunday! I have been excited for this Sunday to come so that I can share with you some lovely new to me yarn.
Do you remember that I talked about upcoming yarn and product reviews in 2014? First up for the New Year is Mountain Meadow Wool. Can I just say, what a way to start?
Since I have been in the mood to knit with grey lately, that is the skein I decided to test out.
Folks, this yarn is beautifully rustic. I have always been drawn to rustic yarn because of how it feels when you knit with it. A rather "being one with nature kind of feeling", that one gets. Make sense?
This may not be a word, but I am sure that most of you will understand when I say that the "sproing" factor in this yarn is off the charts. This made up word leads to fantastic stitch definition. I wanted to knit something simple so that I could tell how the yarn would show of the stitches, therefore I knit the Lovely Ribbed Cowl pattern from Purl Soho. Now that I can see how the yarn takes to pattern, I would bet cables would really work.
While knitting with wooly yarns is a therapy for me, wearing them next to my skin is not always. Except in this case. After a long soak, this yarn bloomed into what feels very close to a baby's bum. Can you tell from the picture how soft it is, maybe not, but trust me.
Or don't trust me and judge for yourself. As I am offerring up a skein to one lucky person. The winner gets to choose from a lovely pink or saffron skein of Mountain Meadow Wool's Jackson DK weight. Each skein has a rather robust amount of yardage at 262 yards.
All you have to do is leave a comment telling me what you would like to knit with this beautiful yarn and your color preference. Please make sure that when my comments prompt you for an email address that you leave one. This giveaway is open to international readers as well.
Entries will need to be received before midnight (PST) on February 1st. A winner will be selected via random number generator on February 2nd, and be announced via a blog post.
