Giveaway: Squishy yarn


**Thanks to everyone who entered, we will announce a winner on Sunday morning.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! We have something lucky, green and cashmere today. We have another yarn giveaway.



If you'd like to be updated about our next project or giveaway, you can subscribe to our blog by entering your email address on the lower-left sidebar of this page. We keep our mailing list private.

This yarn would be perfect for Chinook's Spring scarf and has enough yardage for you to have enough left over for a pair of mittens or a second scarf. You could use the yarn from this giveaway for some finger knitting or even hold it double for our Lonely Doll Scarf.

This time our yarn is a really gorgeous one: Squishy by Anzula. It is hand-dyed, 10% cashmere 80% superwash merino and 10% nylon for durability. We are not affiliated with Anzula. This is a skein of yarn I picked up from purlsoho. The colour is Forest. It's actually quite a bright green and would look handsome with a navy coat.

To win this yarn, please leave a comment below this post. Please be sure to leave an address so that we can contact you. Contest ends March 28. This is open to anyone worldwide and there is no fee to enter.
