Dawning Dreams Laceweight Yarn Giveaway!


Shortly before the last box, I was able to visit with Dawn from Dawning Dreams. We had a wonderful time taking the kids to the park and it was so nice to connect with someone so talented as Dawn! She's back from vacation and her shop is better than ever!

This is the perfect time to go shopping! We have the Tour de Fleece and a holiday weekend coming up- it would be nice to have fibery packages arriving during that time ;)

Please visit Dawning Dreams today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for the winner of this beautiful merino/silk laceweight yarn later in the week, so be sure and get your comments and tweets, plurks, facebooks, pings etc in before then- we count those as extra entries!

I love the BYE, BYE BLUEJAY Bulky Handpainted Yarn- what a gorgeous colorway and the yarn looks totally squishable :D

Melissa Antes said...

All of her blue colorways are gorgeous! The Drink Me laceweight is reeeaally making me wish I hadn't broken my budget this month...

Southern said...

I had such a hard time picking a favorite! Dawning Dreams is a shop I stalk with regularity - in part because Dawn is such awesomesauce. I'd have to say my favorite today is the Twilight Forest yarn, but her spinner's lap thingys are a wonderfully unique item!

I love the "Drink Me" lace yarn. Seriously, how cool is it that you get 1300 yards. And the color is fabulous.

And the super-sized markers.

Melrose said...

I like the raspberry tart aran yarn and the peach cobbler sock yarn! Hmmm maybe I need to hit up the farmers market for some fresh fruit :)

Dawn said...

I love the MIDNIGHT FOG Hand Painted Lace Yarn, such lovely colours. Hard to choose though as there are others I liked too.

Lovely :-)

Chris said...

Bumbleberr Pie is a great summertime colorway... and nice to see it's in an aran weight!

I think I'm looking forward to Summer fruit because both the Peaches batt and the Peach Cobbler sock yarn look delicious to me!
