Serendipity and Sock Yarn Giveaway!





Are you in the mood for candy eggs and chocolate bunnies? New to the Phat Fiber family this month is Serendipity. This yarn pictured above was dyed by Emily of Serendipity, and it really reminds me of Easter candy! Just looking at Emily's shop gets my mouth watering- so many foodie inspired colorways!

This particular yarn is quite soft and I can picture just a really delicious pair of comfy socks knitted with it! I read in her profile that Emily's kids help name her yarn for her- this one is called "Love A Lot" was there a Care Bear named that? Anyway, it's got all those feel-goody pinks, purples and blues in there!

We're giving away this scrumptious skein to a lucky commenter! Just visit Serendipity, find something you like and write about it in the comments section below. Please help us get the word out about Emily's shop! We're going to count your extra twittering/facebooking and other social networking as extra entries to show our appreciation.

Thank you Emily for sharing this Love A lot yarn with us! We love it a lot!

I like the Wintergreen bulky. While I could see using it at Christmastime, it's also quite Spring-y!

The Daffodil- Hand-dyed Superwash Merino Wool caught my eye, because daffodils are springing up everywhere in my neighborhood and this colorway is just perfect for the season.

Oh, I definitely love the watermelon striping sock yarn! Nom! The Daffodils also caught my eye, but I'm not much of a sport-weight sock kinda girl.

I do think Love-a-lot was a care bear. As for yarn, I'm not sure what I'd knit with it but the Watermelon fingering weight yarn just makes me smile.

I am loving Roseberry and Seaside along with many others...really pure colors!

Red said...

I actually like Love-A-Lot the best; I love the colors and I grew up with the Care Bears (yes, Love-A-Lot was one of them!) so it's got some sentimental value to me, with a name like that! =)
