Play at Life Fiber Arts Maki Giveaway!



Are you an honorary baller? If you received a Play at Life Fiber Arts sample this May, you might be! Chrystee attached the most adorable buttons to her samples this month!

In our Ravelry group, we have started a 'Vertex' KAL and after I picked out my yarn, I realized what a beautiful marriage Play at Life's Maki and this pattern would make! Chrystee has joined us in the KAL so I'm very curious to see what hers will look like in the end!

Today we're giving away this gorgeous reclaimed Maki called 'Dogwood' it is 190 yards of worsted weight 50% wool 25% cotton and 25% silk yarn. Chrystee has a unique way of dyeing the Maki's with very long color transitions that make knitting with it quite entertaining!

Please visit Play at Life Fiber Arts today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Be sure and mention it on twitter, facebook, plurk, Ravelry, Craftster or wherever else you hang out so everyone can enjoy Play at Life's site! We'll count that extra work as more entries, just let us know you did it!

Thanks so much for sharing this Maki with us, Chrystee!

Melissa Antes said...

What a great combination of colorways! I cannot even believe how bright and vivid the LOL and Get Sprung yarns are... and then how subtle and pretty some of the others are! I'm incapable of deciding which I like better today. ;p
