June Giveaway!


Woohoo June! Summer has descended upon our city, and I thought I was going to melt on the sidewalk outside today: 100 degrees is like breathing air through hot fleece! I could really use a sno-cone right about now...

At least I have June's giveaway yarn to cool me off:

Holy gorgeous, Batman! What do we have here?


It's Yellow Hobbit yarn! This is her 100% merino superwash in "Scootaloo"! For the uninformed, Scootaloo is a character on the new My Little Pony cartoon:

What a fun concept for yarn colors! First the Avengers, and now My Little Pony are inspiring dyers to make all kinds of fun color combinations. This superwash has a great springiness that seems like it'd be a breeze to knit with. At 490 yards, you have enough to do a decent-sized project, too!

Okay, okay, what do you have to do to enter this month? Check out Yellow Hobbit's Etsy store, fave something, and then come back and tell me what you faved!

Good luck, and I'll draw the winner on the 30th!
