July Giveaway!

Well, hello there. It's my understanding that you may enjoy some yarn. Indeed, some free yarn.


How about this month's giveaway?

It's two GORGEOUS little rolls of Play At Life Fiber Arts Revelous Sockie maki in "dogwood"!

60% Merino, 30% Bamboo rayon, 10% nylon: this stuff feels ridiculous to touch. Soft and beautiful. I love the variations in the green, too. Two separated cakes means easy sock knitting, too. Since this yarn is a slow gradient, having matched cakes makes it easier to match items, whether it's halves of a shawl, individual socks, or gloves/mittens.

It's beautiful and I'm seriously jealous of the winner! Luckily for the rest of us, Play At Life is also offering 15% off all orders in the online store, with the code "YARNSPLODER"! So don't worry if you don't win something!

To enter this month, visit the Play At Life Fiber Arts online store, and come back here to comment with your favorite!

Good luck!

  1. I'm rather fascinated by the milk protein fiber in Loud and Proud, though I've been eyeing a set of Loud and Proud Makis for months now. Someday!

  2. Oh, how I wish I knew how to spin--or had the time to learn (yeah, I know, lousy excuse, but true in my case), because the Mixed Bfl Combed Top - Titian's Muse caught my eye like whoa.

    ReplyDelete
  3. That yarn is beautiful. I'm in love. I pick it as my favourite.

    But if I am picking something from the shop, it would probably be the dogwood BFL top. Mmmm, green!!

  12. I really like her yarns the best because I am not a very good spinner but out of the fiber she has up right now I really love 4oz BFL Combed Top - Bonfire- The bonfire colorway is just gorgeous.
