2014 Fall Giveaway

Summer is almost over and you know what that means? The start of knitting season, of course! There is no better way to kick start the knitting season than with a yarn giveaway.

For the 2014 Fall Giveaway, I’ve chosen two skeins of Silky Alpaca Lace yarn from Classic Elite Yarns. First, let me tell you that I absolutely love this yarn. It is super soft, has a light sheen to it and it is lightweight and airy which makes it perfect for lace projects. The color of this yarn is called Turquoise Amber which reminds me of a peacock’s colorful plumes with its blend of blues, greens and amber. Absolutely gorgeous! And the best part is that Silky Alpaca Lace yarn is comprised of 70% baby alpaca and 30% silk…very luxurious!

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a great New Year’s celebration. With the start of a new year and with the conclusion of the holidays, it is time to get back to work and our everyday routines. 🙁 I understand the feeling. But wait, let’s not be too depressed about it. How about a little pick-me-up? A giveaway? Yep, it’s that time again! What better way to cure your post holiday blues than a fun giveaway?

For the 2014 New Year’s Giveaway, I’ve chosen two fantastic skeins of Shi Bui yarns in contrasting colors, Pool and Brass. Made with 100% baby alpaca, these yarns appear to have a sheen to them and are very soft.
