The 100K Yarn Drawing! Prizes!!!











To enter the 100K yarn Drawing, leave a comment, or just your name, for this post. You may enter all 3 drawings, but you can only win 1 prize. Winners will be announced Tuesday April 29, sometime after 8:00am, CDT.


Yarn Prize #1: 158 yds, 6.1 ozs total, handspun Merino Bulky 2-ply yarn. The Purple skein has 93 yds, the Pink/White skein has 65 yds. This is extremely soft and squooshy yarn, and it should be enough for a hat.

Yarn Prize #2: About 2 ozs of handspun Novelty Yarns, 130 yds of Purple Romney/Silk Noil/Angora boucle bound with a metallic thread. This yarn won a 2nd Place in the Novelty Yarn category at the North Country Fiber Fair (ribbon included), 20 yds of Mohair Lamb Boucle yarn (spun from the same locks in the Spinning Drawing), and 36 yds of green Merino Lamb novelty yarn bound with metallic thread. The small skeins aren't enough for more than an accent stripe in a larger project, but there should be enough of the Romney/Silk/Angora for a simple scarf.

Yarn Prize #3: 2 50 gr balls Fortissima Socka Colori self-patterning sock yarn, in the old Mexiko Colorway. I bought an entire bag of this yarn several years ago, and it is now discontinued. It's one of my favorite self-patterning designs.


Yarn Prize #4: 100gr hand-dyed worsted weight wool. This yarn has been dyed in a graduated color band colorway of peaches and browns. The color will gradually change throughout the skein.


The 100K Yarn Drawing is now open!

Pretty yarn!

Melanie said...

Mmm, love the Fortissima Socka. My wheel gives me "the look" and makes me feel guilty if I knit or weave with someone else's handspun. Glad you survived the blizzard. We wound up with 10+ inches at our house but still managed to make it into Huron on Saturday for knitting group at The Coffee Tree. Hope you can join us sometime.

I loved your fiction books and I love your "yarn" tales. I would have to use it for crochet, but I'm sure it will be gorgeous any way.
