May Giveaway!

Happy May! Are you as excited as I am for a new giveaway?

This month we have some awesome springy yarn, courtesy of Sheepy Time Knits!


This lovely little gem is STK's Sparkle Feet base in "Teal Deer". It's a gorgeous teal with just a bit of an inky ribbon running through it, and a spattering of silver sparkle. Not too much sparkle, either. It also get mega extra bonus points for matching my blog's color scheme so wonderfully!

Hello, yarn... I PUT MY FACE ON YOU.

I love the sophisticated color palette used, but also the texture and feel of the yarn are great... 63% superwash/ 20% silk/ 15% nylon/ 2% Sterling silver make this a super soft knit that would be great for close-to-the-skin accessories and edgings.



So how can you win this month? Go to Sheepy Time's In Stock page and choose a favorite product... Each product page has a set of buttons, so share on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Amazon! And of course, as usual, come on back here and tell me which one you love (and why, if you're so inclined! It'll make each giveaway better!) and how you shared it!

Here's Sheepy Time's photo of the same colorway, from her In Stock page:


Thanks for entering and good luck! I'll pick a winner at the end of the month!

  1. Oh my! What amazing yarns! Every last one! I'm tending away from lace weights these days as I can't knit fast enought! I love the Aran weight strawberry mango stripe. Would be adorable on my 5 mos old. Thanks for the chance to win yummy yarn! Rav amchart

  2. Wow! So hard to pick just one. I think I have at least 14 favorites on one page alone!! The colors are fabulous. I think my favorite (right now) is ....Sheepy Feet wool SOCK yarn Sheepy Time Yarns in Light Bright or sherbert. They would make a stunning pair of socks for my sister. Thanks for the chance.

  3. I am very tempted by the All Your Lace Sparkle Lace in Speshul Snowflakes. I like that it's slightly variegated and rich and that it would probably go extremely well with my fancy party dress. Hmm.

  11. Does the time traveler club count as a favorite product? What about the speshul snowflakes club? No?

    In that case, my favorite is the Moody Blues colorway on All Your Base because it's a good TARDIS blue and I'm dying to knit Bigger on the Inside.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh, the Time Travelers Club...yum!

  60. Oh! I shared the Time Traveller club on my facebook awhile ago, I love it. But I just had to post the colorway of the month- Night Vision on my twitter account. ;) Just so my sister will see it. Because, you know... my birthday is this month. And that green is so delicious. And of course, I'm low on Sock Yarn. Can't have that, now can I?

  64. The colors of all the yarns are yummy, but liked the Aran weight "Sherbet" the best. I think I would just "pet it" for awhile, before knitting it up into something. :-)
    I added it to my facebook page.

  65. My fav was hard to pick. I think it might be the sheepy feet wool sock cause my socks have to have some nylon. The color Pansy Ass caught my attention caught my attention because my fav cousin's fav colors are purple and yellow. She's the only cousin on the "sock list".

    ReplyDelete
  66. My favorite colorway right now is Oncoming Storm. I am split on either the sparkle feet base or the big feet base, which is my favorite base ever.
