Wollee's Yarn Ceations Giveaway!



I'm getting very excited for this May box to come out! We have some fabulous yarn and fiber to show you this month! Today I'm featuring yarn from Wollee's Yarn Creations! If you haven't yet seen Elizabeth's shop, please check it out!

With warm weather upon us, imagine yourself draped in a beautifully dyed cotton yarn on warm evenings. There are so many color choices available! Because Elizabeth knits with her yarn, she understands that you need the option of starting the color you last ended up on so additional yarn is usually available that is wound in the opposite direction.

We're giving away this chocolate covered strawberry color change cotton laceweight to a lucky commenter! Just visit Wollee's Yarn Creations, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing later in the week, so use your time and gain extra entries by tweeting/facebooking/ravelating about this giveaway- be sure and tell us where you did it, so we can check.

I love that way the color-changing is handled, with the little bits of one color scattered through the previous color - that "tweedy" sort of look makes for a nice pairing with the cotton.

Tropical and Lights are such pretty colorways!

I like TROPICAL Color Changing Cotton - CCC-3 100 gr / 480 yds it is soo pretty and cotton to boot. will fb and twitter.

Galia Lael said...

I can't pick just one, they all call my name pretty loudly :)
But if I must - then Lime Leaves would be my choice.

theluckielizard said...

I love Wolles Yarn, her colors are vibrant and beautiful. Purple Purpose is my favorite colorway! Thanks for offering this as a giveaway.

AmyDe said...

I love Blue Basil and Blue Basil II. I've been looking at this for a while and I LOVE that it's cotton (Atlanta weather is HOT). Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

Red said...

Caribbean is very pretty! She has lots of pretty color combinations though, it's really hard to pick just one favorite!

heather said...

That is some beautiful yarn! I don't know how to choose. I really love Three Greens or Lime Leaves or Lilac how do you choose?

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

Love the silver/navy combo! You've got some gorgous color combos!

Chris said...

You could say something nice about all the color combinations! I like that there are some 'cool' combinations, some 'warm' combinations, and some that are a mixture of both!

suburban prep said...

I like how the colors change and the colors chosen for the making of the Purple Sky II sequence.
These are such stunning colorways.

Christine said...

Purple Mint II is the perfect combo for me! I want a shawl out of this!

Purple salmon and triple green are wonderful. I had a really hard time choosing a favorite so I picked two, but I want them all.

Cozy Knitting said...

Gosh, how does she do the dyeing? It is very intriguing, and the choices are too numerous. I can't pick just one. The limes are nice, but I like the sublety of navy/silver colorway. I don't know how to pick just one.

A Rose said...

What a cool idea for dying yarn! I think I'd like to try the TROPICAL Color Changing Cotton.

I like the LIGHTS Color Changing Cotton 4-ply. It reminds me of cherry blossoms, for some reason. :)

What a wonderful shop with so much color! I loved the TROPICAL Color Changing Cotton. I'm a sucker for blues.

ZombieCat said...

I just love her overall concept. Very cool! The blues and purples are my favorite, with Purple Mint being high on that list!

Kristin said...

VERY COOL! How do you do that?

I especially like the Triple Green. :) But, I also love the Lights knitted sample with the ziggy-zaggy lace pattern.

Spinnergirl said...

Strawberry hershey colorway, two of my favorite treats in a yarn! Yea!!

Snaps said...

Triple green has to be my favorite or perhaps jeansy green. I love long color change yarns.

I'm a big fan of slow colour changes. You've done a fabulous job!!

My two favs are Autumn Lake and Purple Samon. They remind me of happy times as a child in the mountains :)

Anett Kiefer said...

I really like the Summer Nights.

Fun to look at Wolle's finished projects to see the color changes.
Summer Night would be my first choice. I'll be on Ravelry as well to tell you this.

brownbear said...

This yarn is so cool. I think my favorite it the lilac blossoms colorway.

cthulhulovesme said...

I really like both the Triple Green II and Tropical colorways-- they just seem to pop when you look at them.

leah said...

I like all of these! The strawberry hershey is one of my favorites, but the Caribbean color way could also be fun!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

This is the most interesting cotton yarn I've seen lately. And it's great that you can get one skein, and then another with the colors in the reverse order. Favorite color from the shop today? Teal Deal, I think.

Eileen said...

I love it all! Wow I've never seen anything like this. I really like the Lights II colorway. Very cheerful!

Sue said...

I love this yarn. I love Honeybee.

Marlitharn said...

So pretty! I've never worked with color changing yarn, but I think my life needs an Aquafrog shawl.

Jennifer said...

Wow, this is some seriously STUNNING yarn. I love the orange chocolate... yum!

Mary said...

These yarns are really neat! I like Tropical a lot. My daughter is learning sign language and asked me to make her some gloves with different colored fingers, but she hates wool. (sigh) I think with a little work, this yarn would be perfect!

dixiemaiden said...

I like the "Rainbow" color changing yarn.

Bronwyn said...

Wow! Gorgeous! Makes me want to knit a shawl. Why do there have to be so many amazing colorways? I really like the Silver Navy and Green Medley. Or anything. I even like the orange, and I'm totally not an orange person! And who can resist chocolate-covered strawberries?
