Give Away Day!

Here we go. Inspired by Jenna, who had amazing giveaways every Friday for a month in honour of her businesses birthday, I've decided to do a couple giveaways too. I don't have anything in particular that I'm celebrating, I just realized that I love giveaways and wanted to do one.

Today's prize is one skein of Blue label Fingering Weight Yarn in Twilight, a dark, moody navy with hints of raspberry peeking through. This is a one of a kind colourway that I don't plan on repeating any time soon. I dyed one batch of this colour a while back and while I love it, it was too close to a couple other colourways that I already have to make the cut.


I used a couple other skeins from the batch to knit this little sweater for my god daughter last Christmas, I paired it with another one off colourway.

To win this lovely skein of fingering weight yarn just leave me a comment, be sure to leave your e-mail address so I can let you know if you've won. I'll randomly chose a winner and announce it next Friday! I'm so excited!

  2. Love the colour! I'm also loving your green label in Stormy - I'm taking part in the Purple Purl's FLS KAL and was so happy to get a big bag of it!

  3. I need more blues in my wardrobe and Laura Chau's Milkweed Shawl sprung to mind when I saw your navy fingering. (Sorry, I don't know where to put my E-mail address)

  11. I just started a couple of weeks ago knitting a pair of socks with this yarn. It's a lace pattern and the yarn is just perfect for this! Everywhere I go, people ask about it because the colour is amazing (peacock)! I can't wait to start a new pair....elilap AT yahoo DOT com

  20. As one who has personally seen the sweater, it is gorgeous, washes beautifully and brings out the blue in Abby's eyes.  A real keeper!  Michelle ?

  21. i dunno if this will still count, coming a few days later, but that is a divine shade of dark blue!! I would use that to make a swallowtail shawl with this!

    Love your yarn!

  23. I just posted an FO using your fingering weight in the Shadow colourway - sooo lovely!

  24. I love your sense of color (and your yarn as well-- more than a couple of skeins have followed me home from the Naked Sheep in Toronto). I've been knitting a pair of socks out of Mallard recently, and I love watching the variation in the yarn come together to make such a lovely semi-solid fabric.

    Anyway, my email is kslush.27 AT gmail DOT com. Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  25. Tanis how could I resist putting myself into the hat for a draw at some of your yarn? It is a beautiful shade...my stash would make such good friends with it... (You weren't channeling Stephanie Meyer with that name, were you? ;) )
