Gale's Art Sock Yarn Giveaway!




I was tickled pink (excuse the pun!) to be able to drop a full sized skein of Gale's Art "Pigs in Space" yarn in a box in December! As I said in the video, I'm not much of a pink person, but I would totally wear some socks made with this yarn. It just works!

I was so struck by Gale's artistry that I purchased some "Swirl BFL" fiber from her shop she had named "Pretty Pretty". Though it looked pretty in the photo- it is rare that I gasp audibly when I open my fibery packages. It was not just pretty, but beautiful!! So artfully dyed and all the colors flowed together as if it grew on the sheep that way! Tucked inside my purchase was a beautiful tussah silk sample- the shiniest and softest tussah silk I have *ever* seen! I will certainly be back for more- and very soon!

We're giving away this beautiful "Pigs in Space" skein of sock yarn dyed by Gales Art to a lucky commentor! Visit Gale's Shop, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner tomorrow so be sure and you get those extra entries by twittering/facebook/blogging about this giveaway!

Thank you Gale, for once again for showing us why your shop is called "Gale's Art" and not just "Gale's Yarn and Fiber!"

I love the Misty Mountain Lake colors- so pretty! Of course, it would have to be yarn not roving- I haven't gotten into spinning, yet. :)

I've been a big fan of Gale's art for awhile. My fav rovings are Grape Vine (dark) and string of lights. They're so beautiful. And all the yarns are exquisite. I can't pick just one!

This one's easy: the Soft Sage sock yarn. What a lovely Bakus that would make!

Pigs Innnnn Spaaaaaaaaaace! The colorway just takes me back and is very evocative of the Muppets and fun, happy things.

Also a hearty compliment on Misty Mountain Lake - it's very beautiful, like an oil landscape painting of a tall peak in the Rockies. Gorgeous.

All that great roving makes me want to learn to spin! I love the pigs in space, I was/am a huge muppet show fan and that was always my favorite part, well besides anything kermit was in. That and I really like pigs. The crayon box sock yarn is so great, totally my colors, once I get my stash down more It's something I'd have my hands all over.

Just LOVE the roving - string of lights (blueface swirl). All those pretty, pretty colors to play with .....

Kristen said...

Green is my favorite color so for me it would be the yarn in Soft Sage. (But I LOVE the name "Piiigggss Innnnnnn Spaaaaaace!" and I hear it in my head just like the announcer on the Muppet Show would say it.)

Jags said...

It was really hard to pick a fave, your colors are all so bright and happy!
