*First Free Yarn Giveaway!* A Few of My Favorite Things...Yarn and Giveaways

I have decided to combine two of my favorite things--yarn and giveaways! For those of you who know me, you know how much I love giveaways and getting free stuff in the mail.

Well, I have decided to share the love. One lucky winner will receive a skein of the beautiful and luxurious Noro Silk Garden in color 293. It is self-striping and makes any project special.

To enter, go to www.needlesandewe.com and find your favorite yarn and color. Then add a comment to this post with 1) your favorite yarn and color on www.needlesandewe.com and 2) what you would make with that yarn. On June 8th I will chose a winner at random using the True Random Number Generator at www.random.org. In order to give everyone an equal opportunity, please only leave one comment. I look forward to hearing about everyone's favorites!

I love the Noro Silk Garden-008 Royal colorway, and would make a hat with a jaunty brim. Thanks for the giveaway!

One Sheep said...

I really think the giveaway yarn is my favorite, but the Kureyon Aqua/Purple is another wonderful color. I think a pair of fingerless gloves would be great in either.

SpaceCase said...

Wow, the Silk Garden in #293 combined with #279 would make a beautiful striped scarf!

I like Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran-10 yarn in Teal.

I'd like to knit a top from the yarn, but I'm not really that good at knitting clothing, so I'd probably make a luxurious scarf.

Samantha said...

I quite like the Noro Kureyon-188 Moss, Purples, Navy, Black, Pink. With the Silk Garden I would probably make a hat or kerchief I could alternate with a plain color to make the most of the Noro e.g. Turn a Square Hat or Silk Kerchief.

The noro silk garden 301 is lovely! I'm a little out of practice with knitting/crochet so I'd probably just make a scarf or something out of it, or save it till I'm back in practice to make something amazing ;)
