Sock Yarn Giveaway

I've recently started twittering (as opposed to wittering!) and am surprised by how much I enjoy it! I love getting @mentions, and the little yfrog thingy that pops up photos.


So to celebrate I'm having a giveaway of 100grams of sock yarn :)

The winner will receive their choice of 100g of sock yarn available in The Sock Yarn Shop

All you have to do is leave a comment with the yarn and shade of your choice before midnight (GMT) Saturday 27th March 2011 and I'll randomly pick a winner!

Please also leave a way for me to contact you... a blog link, twitter name, ravelry name etc.

International entries welcome.

p.s. I'm @SockYarnShop on twitter (I know, highly original ;) if you'd like to say hello :)

  1. Regia Jazz Mint Julep's the apple of my eye today (aside from the yarn I ordered from you earlier ;)

    Best wishes

  30. In the statistically unlikely chance that my past is chosen...

    Malabrigo in Archangel. Or Violeta Africana. Or Indiecita. I can't choose.

    You are made of awesomeness and win, in case no one's mentioned that yet.

  52. I've never knit with Malabrigo, and I hear it's a must have experience. Love all the colors, but the Arbol (858) looks like a sunset.

  55. One thing I love about Ravelry is the ability to learn about other knitters and yarn websites. Loved yours and the ease of navigating it. I thought I'd never be able to choose just one out of all your lovely choices till I saw the "fyberspates - Cashmere Blush." I didn't need to go any further. So gorgeous! :-)

  88. Oh, golly! So much yarn - so hard to choose just one! But I think the Fyberspates Scrumptious in Gold just has the edge over several others. Not for socks, though - it would make a lovely shawl. (I have the 101 One-Skein Sock Yarn Wonders book, and have been eying some of the patterns in there with interest...)

    I love that you have another contest going on. You rock Pip!

    Ironically there is a contest I have my eye on that requires me to make something with Opal yarn. Makes my choice much easier, I have yet to find any of this yarn locally!
