We Love Thor Giveaway






Carina, the dye maven behind We Love Thor is celebrating a birthday this month! She was so sweet to include some of her "Floating Orchid" Peredale roving in her last shipment of samples for me. The top photo is the resulting yarn- aren't the colors just yummy?!

Carina "super sized" some of her samples included in May's box as little gifts to you!
We Love Thor is having some extra terrestrial sales right now! They are changing their current sock base and are clearing out stock- so go snatch a pair of yet to be knit socks!

In celebration of Carina's birthday, we're giving away some really delicious We Love Thor yarn. It is called "Garden Variety" and is a light worsted weight- and like much of their goods, looks like candy to me (note chubby 3 year old boy fingers in second photo- they look like candy to someone else I know too). Please visit We Love Thor, find something you like, and write about it below here. We'll draw for a winner on Friday. Remember, I will count your twitter, facebook, plurk and blog updates about this as second entries!

Thank you, Carina for sending in such gorgeous samples! We Love You!

I could just devour the welovethor rovings. The classic bubble gum silks (and the batt), the coral and violet, and the ornaments are my faves. Love the colors.

kataish said...

OH OH PICK ME! *I* love Thor!

I love the Accidental Sunshine colourway. Its soooo bright and summery!!

Rachel Suntop said...

I really dig the Floating Orchid roving. The colors are great. I also really love your name "We love Thor." I am obsessed with Iceland (been there twice, lived there for 2 months in 2005) and all things Icelandic. I assume you're referring to the Norse legend "Thor."

Jen said...

wet cotton candy is so amazingly perfect I might have to break my fiber diet. yum!

posted on twitter (gonzopants) & facebook (http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/profile.php?id=656115224&ref=name), too!

lime juice said...

ooohh the buttercake and icing colorway looks so yummy!

TJJ said...

Chelsea morning and chocolate strawberry cookies are beautiful.

Buckette said...

After much deliberation, I finally settled on the merino fingering yarn in that beautiful Emerald City colorway. It would be lovely as a scarf.

I believe the Thor they are reffering to is the character Thor from Stargate.

Sally said...

I love the sea grass yarn, the colors are amazing. I also need to learn to spin so I can spin up some of that beautiful fiber. Yum!

I love the colors in the spunky electric jelly bean!

Nightphoenix said...

While the bright colors are gorgeous, the one that caught my eye was athabasca. It's a wonderful subtle color.

ZombieCat said...

Happy Birthday!

I really like the name and the color of Accidental Sunshine sock yarn. Very pretty. I'm not usually drawn to yellow, but there have been some yellow samples in the last few boxes that have changed my mind.

Wow! There is so much beauty here. I love the fooderati-like baby merino lace and the fly in a trap yarns. I am also IN LOVE with some of the rovings. Floating orchid, chocolate strawberry, and classic bubble gum are my faves there.
