Giveaway Day!

UPDATE: Comments are closed for this post as the deadline for contest entries has passed. Thanks to all who participated!

For the first time, I am participating in the Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway Day. I mean, what could possibly be more fun than free stuff, right?


So as part of the Giveaway Day, I am going to select a random person who comments on this post, using the dreaded Random Number Generator, and award them the following:


one skein of Black Bunny Fibers handpainted sock yarn: my Superwash Merino Classic (Delft, a semisolid in rich cobalt blue; 400 yards of fingering weight superwash 100% merino wool ) & one copy of the Emmett sock knitting pattern (PDF or hard copy, your choice).


Emmett Socks

All you have to do is leave a comment to this post. Remember, there has to be an email addy either in the comment or via your profile. Comments must be received by midnight, May 25th, and I will pick the winning name the next day. I will be happy to ship the item within the USA or to any other country that the US Post Office can deliver first-class mail to.

If you're new here, please poke around my blog for knitting talk and more recently, some sewing and quilting talk. And there's lots of other lovely handpainted yarns at my shop, Black Bunny Fibers. You can sign up for my e-newsletter by using this link. (I won't sell or give your info away & I will keep the number of emails to a minimum. I also often include free shipping codes and other discount coupons!)

Good luck to all!

When I go to festivals, one of the ways I keep myself from over-stashing is to set myself specific quests. At Stitches East last year, my quest was for intense blue sock yarn, just like the yarn in this entry. I was surprised how unusual it is.

Love that color and can about feel that skein against my neck (my usual
