Yarn Giveaway



We're having a little giveaway this month, for anyone looking for a light, little, portable summer project: 1 ball of organically grown, Blue Sky Worsted Cotton in "Tomato" red, enough to make 1 Windy's Spring Scarf. We are not sponsored by Blue Sky, we chose it because it is soft, squishy and knits really nicely. It is also nice to knit with in warmer weather.



If you don't want to make a scarf, you could make some pears or a hat or a lovely bunch of pompoms.

We will give away the yarn on May 27th.

To win, please tell us your favourite colour of red. Is it strawberry? Is it stoplight? Let us know in the comments for this post. Winner will be chosen at random. One entry per person. Anyone from anywhere is eligible.

Good luck, and happy knitting!

    Only then comes all delicious reds from apples, cherries and strawberries.
