Treasure Goddess Sock Yarn Giveaway!





I have a serious case of the Mondays. The buzz of the holidays has gone, and though I am anxious to get back to my normal routine, I have vowed changes in my life (particularly eating habits!) and so "normal" will be a little different. While I'm getting my "land legs" as my Dad ( a 30 year Navy Vet) would say, I will indulge in what I know to be good for me- fiber!

If you too, are looking to escape just a little today, visit Treasure Goddess!!! Handspun goodness, sock yarn slinkiness, and fiber smooshiness await for you to discover them.

Christine, (the yarn and fiber goddess) has a most delightful blog:
http://treausregoddesschic.blogspot.com you can follow all of her yarn and fibery adventures.
I love how she calls her talents a way to "let the crazy out".

We're giving away this beautiful skein of "Treasure Toes" sock yarn - 80% superwash merino 20% bamboo to a lucky commenter! Just visit Treasure Goddess, find something you like (psst! the same sock yarn is on SALE in her shop right now!) and comment about it here below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week and you can get extra entries by tweeting/facebooking/ravelating/blogging about how awesome Treasure Goddess is (just let us know you did it!)

Thank you Christine, for creating such awesomeness for us to sample!

The Spice Rack colorway of handspun is beautiful. I love browns but generally have a hard time buying brown yarns as they are often very one dimensional and hold all of the negative aspects of brown. Sort of boring and colorless if you will. Spice Rack, on the other hand, is so rich! I love the orange mixed in there giving the yarn another layer but not one that distracts from the original purpose. Absolutely gorgeous.

So of course, I also am ogling the 1300 yards of Greens 2 Laceweight...what a beautiful shawl that would make!!!!!

trh said...

It's soo cold here (and we aren't exactly used to that) that I think I need more handknit socks for everyone in the house!!! I absolutely love the Northern Lights sock yarn . . . but, if she had sock yarn in the same green color as that laceweight, it would be MINE! Her giveaways are gorgeous too!

Raymie said...

I like the Spicy Guacamole...love the greens!
