The Yarn Side and *Giveaway*








I am trying to catch up on my The Crochet Side Podcasts! Yes, Brianna is back from a mini hiatus- we missed you, girl!
If you haven't gotten a chance check her shop- The Yarn Side please treat yourself! Brianna not only has some gorgeous yarn and fiber bases, her colorways are amazing!
You know I gush a lot on here, but you really need to try some of her stuff.
Brianna really doesn't mess around with her samples. She has sent in a Mrs. Dalloway crochet cuff pattern (complete with beads!) lots of luxurious yarn and some really delicious fiber- May's was Baby Alpaca and Merino!
Brianna is a just a really sweet person to talk to- she's on twitter every so often, and I enjoy listening to her show.
I have several big sample sized goodies from Brianna here (some Baby Alpaca merino roving, yarn and a pattern) I would love to give away to a lucky commenter here!
Please visit The Yarn Side and find something you like. Comment about it below here, and I will draw a random name on Friday. Please check back to see if you've won! Remember I always count your social networking pings as extra entries!
Thank you so much, Brianna! I am so glad things are beginning to return to normal for you and I look forward to your next submissions to the box!

I'm having a hard time picking just ONE thing I like from the shop. Brianna is in one of the Rav groups I'm in, and let me just say, she's a TOTAL sweetheart.

I really love "New Moon Rising", I think. :D

TheClayMuse said...

like others i can't choose just one!, well if I have to I say Surely to the Sea - DK Superwash Merino is my fave, but puppet master and others are beautiful too! Love it!

tamdoll said...

I love the puppet show sock yarn. A yarn named after a buffy episode is awesome. I would need a buffy inspired sock pattern to go with it.
