Color Bug Yarns Giveaway!





Whoooweee! This is GREEN yarn, isn't it? I recently ordered (and received) a gorgeous skein of skinny bfl sock yarn from Color Bug Yarns in Koi- which has the most amazing combination of saturated deep turquoise blue and orange and green- very watery yet bright at the same time.
I think I"ll be making a shawl with it- it's just too lovely to put on my feet!

Ann (the color maven behind Color Bug Yarns) has a unique relationship with color. Not only is she not afraid to use it, she's befriended it and invited it over for tea. If you haven't yet peeked into her shop, look at her beautiful butterfly listings and you'll see what I'm talking about. Brilliant!

We're giving away this gorgeous green skein of worsted weight yarn from Color Bug Yarns. Just visit Color Bug Yarns and find something you love, write about it in the comments section below and we'll draw for a winner later in the week- remember that you'll be rewarded with extra entries for all those social networking (tweets, facebook updates, ravelry posts) you do to help us out.

Thanks Ann for sharing your brilliance with us!

Good heavens! How can a person choose?!? If pressed, I'd have to say that the first skein I'd buy would be in the Koi colorway.

The "a beautiful butterfly" is gorgeous in any yarn/fiber, but I especially like the Color Bug Merino Sock Yarn in that colorway.

Any of the Beautiful Butterfly items, with the BFL sock yarn on top of the list. And the Inchworm yarns ... I can easily picture them in my stash.

Lauren said...

I really like Poppy and the Beautiful Butterfly fiber!

Kat said...

I love the Butterfly color way in the Merino sock yarn and the Merino/Bamboo Fingering Weight in Koi. I love the colors!

Zee said...

Klimt is my favorite. A Beautiful Butterfly would almost be too painful to knit up!

theluckielizard said...

It is hard to picks a favorite colorway, she has so many, but I think that the Autumn Peak is just gorgeous. I have always loved Autumn because of the changing leaves and I think this yarn really captures that.

burnt rain said...

ugh it's a tough call for me between a Beautiful Butterfly and Autumn Peak. They're both gorgeous.

Kristen said...

I'm torn between Sunkissed, Autumn Peak, and Koi colorways. SO MUCH PRETTY!

heather said...

O the horror I spent my yarn money already this month! I know what I am doing with next months. I love the beautiful butterfly colorway. She even has fiber to spin in beautiful colors as well.

So many lovely colors and textures! I'd have to say my favorite is the merino sock yarn in Beautiful Butterfly. Gorgeous!

Merinitta said...

These bright colors are perfect - I'm so tired of this cold, rainy weather that this would be like a bit of spring. I think the first skein I'd buy would be in either the Inchworm or Poppy colorways.

Can I just say that I love the COLOR? :-) Although, green is almost always my favorite, so I might say that I like the one you're giving away best. Or no, I love butterflies and "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," too.....

I LOVE the BFL sock yarn-Dragonfly with those beautiful jewel tones. I'm also crazy about the SCARF FOLD UP - that's just genius, and the magnetic pattern markers which come in handy with all the shawl making that's going on around here!
