Yarn giveaway!

My very first ever giveaway! Do you have visions of sugarplums dancing in your head in anticipation of the coming holidays? No? Maybe you need a little help then. A nudge in the right direction, shall we say. Look no further than this yarn:

Interested? Well, it can be yours! 80 yards of scrumptiously soft candy-cane-colored handspun yarn. I believe it’s wool plied with mohair and a thick-and-thin consistency. Super soft and fuzzy! Enough to make that little something for the girl that has everything, or use it as trim or edging on special handmade Christmas presents.

Spun with tiny glass beads sprinkled through out ...

I bought this yarn a few years ago from a seller I was hooked on. I tried her website the other day and it seems that she is no longer selling her handcrafted yarn. I had always planned to use it on something Christmasy, but now I am thinking it would be better off with someone who could put it to better use. So, I am offering it up to a lucky “someone” out there in blogland.

If you are interested, please leave a comment for me and tell me you’d like to be in the drawing for the giveaway. If you’d like to tell me what you could or would do with the yarn if you won that would be wonderful! Leave your comment by Thanksgiving and I’ll draw names the day after.

Good luck!


That yarn is very festive!  I would have named it peppermint, since that is what it looks like to me! 

If I had this yarn, it would have to become something Christmasy.  Maybe I would knit a little tree skirt for a table top tree.  But that would be a waste of the ‘power of wool’, so maybe I would make a little neck scarf to ward off the ‘chill’. (It does get into the 30’s here in the winter, you know…)

Oh, enter me!

Honestly, I have no clue what I’d do with this yarn. Maybe a Christmas ornament of some sort? I’d need to give it a good feel first.

What cute yarn!

I too would have named it peppermint as it’s the first thing I thought of when I saw the stripes.

80 yards huh - maybe a short neckerchief?  or a little stocking to be hung not too close to the fire as a xmus decoration.

I would like a chance at that yarn.  Not sure what I would do with it yet.  Maybe top some socks with?

Haha!  Word verif today is ‘give’, like ‘give it to ME!!!

By all means!  Count me in!

It is absolutely beautiful! I aree with the others and would have called it peppermint because it REALLY does look like peppermint. I think I would make little stocking, mitt, candycane, bell etc. ornaments from it. It deserves to be shown off and treasured year after year. cool smile

That yarn is so beautiful! I love the little festive beads.  It should definitely be knit up into an heirloom ornament.

Happy Thanksgiving smile

An ornament would make sense, but I think I’d rather make a hat for a little one.

I would love to get this yarn…my mind is swimming with ideas of festive fingerless gloves or perhaps a snow cap…dunno yet but do please enter me.

I love this yarn!  I totally see it as the center section of a cowl.  I have just the angora to put on both sides of it!


That is so very festive!  It’s hard to say what I’d make it into without having the chance to fondle it for myself. For the moment I’d have to make some small stockings to hang from the valances in my living room so everyone could see them.
