It is slated to "snow" today in my little neck of the woods. There is something about the first snow of the season that is so quiet and calming. When that first snow falls on a Sunday evening, it is as if the spheres have aligned and the hope that you wont be able to make it in to work or school the next day- snowballs into fantasies about curling up next to a crackling fire with your knitting.
Now, imagine a snow covered 9 acre wooded farm nestled in the rural and rugged beauty of Missouri. On these 9 acres sits a house- not just any house- a dome home. In that dome home lives and works a woman and, not just any woman, a yarnie named Kay.
Kay Luke, the dye master behind Dome Hill Yarn, sent in several of the cutest center wound sample balls in her "Frost" colorway. Kay is a self-proclaimed trivia nut which can mean only one thing. She pays attention to details. Kay's yarn won't stripe or pool on you- perfect for making socks with lacy patterns! Her skeins of sock yarn seem large too- 400+ yards each!
There is a bit of whimsy about Dome Hill Yarn. I love the "Caramel Latte" yarn she has. I just keep picturing more intricate sock patterns with this yarn- cables, lace etc. This is definitely the yarn that would free me up to learn more difficult techniques/patterns.
Okay, I'll get to the contest!
Kay of Dome Hill Yarn will be giving away an entire skein of "Frost" for a random commenter- here is the kicker- you have to tell a snowman joke!! Drawing will be held on Tuesday!
Kay started us off with hers:
Q: Where does a snowman keep his money? A: In a snowbank!
Good Luck and have fun and don't forget to visit Dome Hill Yarn!
