Chicken in the Woods and Giveaway!
I am a little biased when it comes to today's featured shop. ChickenintheWoods is based out of central Illinois, a few hours north of where I live. I have been there many times, and I think Stephanie's name and entire shop is a bit of local color brought to life on sock yarn!
I have been knitting rainbowy things all summer. I am really drawn to the bold, bright colors lately and Stephanie has several beautiful variegated choices. I feel a shift in my buying habits coming on though, as her semi solids are really gorgeous! These Chicken in the Woods yarns make me want to tackle a sock with complicated stitch patterns!
We're giving away 2 skeins of delicious merino/bamboo sock yarn (480 yds!) in a beautiful "Oceanside" colorway. Just visit Chicken in the Woods, find something you like, and post about it in the comments section below! We'll be drawing for a winner on Saturday, make sure you leave a way for us to contact you. As always, I'll count your extra tweeting, plurking, ravelating, facebooking and blogging as extra entries.
Stephanie, thank you for sharing a little bit of Central Illinois with us!
