yarn giveaway



Last weekend I stopped at ReBelle, a yarn shop in Lexington, Kentucky. I picked up a few skeins of yarn for me and a skein for one of you! I wanted to thank you for reading and commenting. I've been getting to know new blog friends lately and it's so fun!




 Giveaway details:

One person will win a skein of Malabrigo Sock yarn in Archangel. The colorway looks like a sunset to me; it has deep purples, swirls of orange, and hints of yellow.

The giveaway is open to anyone! I'll ship wherever in the world you happen to be.


To enter: 

Leave a comment on this post letting me know what you'd make from this skein (I bought myself a skein and am ready to cast on a Multnomah shawl). Make sure that I have a way to contact you if you win.


For one extra entry each:


  • Share this giveaway on Facebook. Leave a comment on this post letting me know.
  • Post about this giveaway on your blog. Leave a comment on this post letting me know.
  • Tweet about this giveaway. Leave a comment on this post letting me know.


You can enter this giveaway a total of four times!

The giveaway will close on Sunday, July 1, 2012, at 8 p.m. EST. I'll choose a winner at random.




Good luck and thanks for reading!

  1. Allison, thank you so much, the yarn is beautiful. If I am lucky enough to win I think
    I would like to cast on the Holden Shawlette, I think this yarn would show off the pattern just perfectly.

  2. Oh wow, thank you so much for the wonderful giveaway!! I have never used Malabrigo... and I know I am really missing out! I love the color so much.

    I have several sock patterns in my Rav queue that I really want to knit, the Nanner socks, Hermione's Everyday socks, and Nutkin, so it would be a battle between those :)

  4. I am from South Central Ky! I would love to have this yarn to make my 15 year old niece some socks. I am trying so hard to get her interested in knitting. I would love to teach her so she would have something to keep her mind and hands busy.

  16. Wow. That is such a pretty skein! Very generous of you :) If I were to win, I'd probably make a pair of socks. I'm kind of on a sock kick right now and hoping to get 5 pairs done this summer. So far I've only finished one, and have started a second.

  24. Lovely yarn, Malabrigo Sock is one of my favourite yarns, I think I would add it to another skein in my stash and make a Daybreak, I already have two but can always use another one, because I use both of them all the time.

  25. Great yarn. I would make something from Veera Kalimaki or from Kieran Foley.

  26. Oh my gosh! I think I would have to make another cowl from this! I'm thinking lacy twisted stitches?

  32. Malabrigo is by far my favorite Yarn manufacturer, but I've never used the sock yarn because I just recently finished my first pair of socks! I'd love to try it out though.

  35. Oh boy what pretty yarn. Malabrigo is one of the companies who rock when it comes to variegated dyeing.
    I would make socks for myself out of that yarn.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh, I love those colours! I just got my hands on a copy of The Sock Report, and I don't yet know exactly which project I'd make, but it would be one from there for sure!!

  37. How very generous of you. It looks like beautiful yarn--like it fell from an amazing sunset. I hate to be predictable but I'd want to make socks with sock yarn. I've never made socks before--nothing too frilly or fancy. Just something classic.
    My goal is to make myself a pair to get the hang of it, then everyone in my family will get a pair for the holidays this winter. If I won this, I would save it for my Mother's pair. Purple is her color.

  44. Pretty!

    I'm not sure whether I'd make socks or mittens - I think it would make a gorgeous pair of mittens if held double, though.
