ETA: This giveaway is now closed, check out the latest give-away here in this post.
Let's start the day off right! Through the random magic of little man and a bowl full of strips of paper, the winners of the first festival giveaway have been revealed. I was pretty stoked because the winners actually chose opposite yarns, and I don't have to make an administrative decision that might make someone sad.
So, name number one is Michaela who said
"Wow, this is really beautiful yarn, and the colours are prefect for summer. Suddenly I've got lemons and peaches on my mind :) I love the yellow/golden yarn- I think it would be perfect for a shawl such as "Citron"."
And here's what is shipping to you:
And winner number two is GailGodin who said:
"the orange color is one of my favorites. I would make a shawl or something lovely to show off that gorgeous shimmer!"
Here's your care package waiting to go:
Contact is about to go out, and congrats to the winners! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do :)
On to new business. While I was at the fiber festival, I ran into one of my favorite fiber artists with a new name. The artist behind Sereknity Fiber Arts has re-branded because people were having a hard time finding her with her original name. You can now find her at Mad Color Fiber Arts. Definitely check her out, she's going to be running contests and giveaways for a while to celebrate the rename.
While I was there, I picked up two skeins of lace-weight blue silk and linen yarn perfect for a summer weight something. The best part about a silk/linen blend is that it will work even for folks with hair-fiber allergies. Here's what I couldn't walk away from:
So, one for me one for the blog!
But while I was thinking about it, the prize stack seemed a little light. To sweeten things a little, I went into my stash and pulled 2 of the artist's standard colorways. This week, our giveaway is one skein of variegated blues in lace-weight silk and linen, one skein of superwash sock weight in colorway black pearl, and one skein of sport weight greens. See, aren't they pretty??
As last time, one winner for each color/weight of yarn. To enter, just leave a comment telling me what your favorite weight yarn is and why as well as a little bit on how to contact you.
Next Friday (June 3) I will announce winners on this, and put up the next batch of giveaway goodies.
