Alisha Goes Around Spark Sock Giveaway!




Whew! I hope everyone had an enjoyable and festive weekend! We spent the day Saturday trimming my Father-In-Law's tree for him and I kept thinking about this beautiful skein of sock yarn that Alisha Goes Around sent in for a giveaway.

This Spark Sock is truly amazing- the warmth of wool, the softness of silk and the sparkle of sterling silver!! I think it's simply gorgeous, but we're a little "partial to the sparkle" at casa Phatfiber.

I really love Alisha's website, I check back often and am always surprised with more color and bases each time I visit. Today, we're giving away this amazing holiday-red skein of Spark Sock (400 yds!). All you need do is sit down, pour your hot beverage of choice, visit Alisha Goes Around and find something that strikes your fancy. Post about it here, so we can all go see too and wait until Friday for me to draw a winner. Be sure and leave a way for me to find you- we don't want your winnings to end up in the great give-back in January! Oh, and if you tweet/plurk/facebook/blog/ravelate this you'll be given extra entries.

Thanks so much Alisha, for sharing this beautiful sock yarn with all of us!

I'd love to try the Plush sock yarn. I'll bet that little bit of cashmere would make a fabulously soft sock.

I love the names on all the sock yarns. The plush sock yarn with a touch of cashmere is really pretty, especially the Dragon Skin.

I'm a shawl knitter, and how could I resist a yarn with a name like Dragon Skin? The color is gorgeous! And I can just feel that touch of cashmere in my shawl....

OOPS!
I accidentally deleted my post; just wanted to amend it to say thank you for the memory.
I saw the Chocolate Fling Silk Fingering, and it immediately reminded me of the chocolate silk pie my Mom made when I was growing up. So smooth and creamy :-)
Goes to find recipe .....

helenlam said...

The Bakers' Chocolate Spark Sock is just delish!

rebelhousewife said...

The Evil Maude Slick Lace Silk, is definitely on my want list. What a gorgeous color.

Alaskan Nancy said...

I love the sparkly yarn very much, but it's the Lakeshore Property yarn that captures my attention because Alisha is using nature as her inspiration, which I love to do, too.

just ask said...

The "plush sock" cherry cordial is what will be in my dreams tonight. If it feels as good as it looks....I'm hooked :)
