Never Not Knitting Green Yarn Giveaway!


I cannot quite convey how I excited I am to introduce this yarn to you...


This is Meringue Merino by Wool Candy in an extra special limited edition colorway!

Isn't that sooo cool?

I am so in love with this color! It's the most lovely blend of my favorite green tones.
I've started a pair of socks with it, I'll be sharing pictures very soon!


This yarn is exclusively available here through The Fiber Fix online yarn shop.
I had the pleasure of signing and writing a little message on each skein. What fun! :)


Enter to win a skein of "Never Not Knitting Green" provided by
The Fiber Fix by leaving a comment (with contact information) under this post.
Only one comment per person please.

Additionally I will also be giving away a copy of my
Amelie sock and Molly hat pattern to the winner.

Both patterns would be perfect for this yarn!

The winner will be announced on April 15th, 2010, so please check back to see if you've won!

Tryste said...

Ok, I'm commenting on the podcast here (and for the first time, yay!) - I just checked out your pictures of Francis, and I thought I would leave my impressions here for you to read. I hope he'll be pleased to know I'm not seeing the creepy in him - at all! I did happen to catch the "pain in the neck" factor, though ... all those colors, all those pieces! Truly a Ravelympics triumph, and a piece I'm sure your daughter will treasure.

One of these days, when she's a lot older, and has forgotten about the girl puppy/blue blankie issue, you should totally buy her a blue blanket and remind her of the whole incident. ;-)

My two cents!

Happy Knitting :-)

Tryste said...

PS And of course, CONGRATULATIONS on the NeverNotKnitting yarn. I'd be totally thrilled if I were you, too, but I'm happy you're happy. It made for good listening, and good eye candy as well, because it's PRETTY! My favorite color isn't green, but I completely agree that the shade is gorgeous :-)

Have fun with the socks! I hope they last you a good long time :-)

Mary said...

Gorgeous yarn and great patterns!
