Storied Yarns Percy Jackson Yarn giveaway!



Yay! I've been wanting to feature Storied Yarns on the blog for a while now! You may have seen Jesse on Ravelry as Jessecreations (go friend her, you'll be glad you did!) and she is the sweetest bubbliest, funniest, person! Jesse is also very creative- she is a writer by trade and bases her all of her colorways on books!

Last month, Jesse sent in a cute pattern for a crochet star motif and to illustrate how darn sweet she is, she tucked these earrings in for me as a gift! Oh how I love my big dangly earrings! Thank you Jesse! So, she's a talented designer as well ;)

If you missed out on Storied Yarns "Percy Jackson SAL" here is your chance to have 50g of the exclusive colorway! Just visit Storied Yarns, find something you like, write about it in the comments section below and you'll be entered to win! We would love it if you would help twitter, facebook, ravelate etc about Storied Yarns too- we'd love it so much that we would count that social networking as an extra entry. Just let us know you did it!

Love her yarns! It is about time for me to get back into sock mode and the Florida Beaches Silk Sock would be PERFECT!
Thank you for holding this giveaway.

Lani said...

It's hard to choose but Grapes of Wrath is my favorite.

I really like the O. Henry Ending - Merino Sock yarn as well as the little story that goes with it. Whoever thought we could even become more "literate" by visiting an Etsy shop. Have decided to do a simple lace shawlette and wouldn't it be nice to have a "one of a kind" shawl as well.

Carlin said...

The Grapes of Wrath yarn is absolutely fantastic. Such vibrant purples!

The Persephone - Superwash Merino Worsted makes me think of Miami Beach.

Sarah said...

I'm a huge Percy Jackson fan and used to pimp it to everyone when I worked in a bookstore. I'm loving the Florida Beaches yarn in your shop now, though. Looks like it'd be fun to knit up!

TuttleDB said...

I gotta choose Persephone SW Merino Worsted, since it is also DD's middle name!

I knit the Gapes of Wrath and it is beautiful. I also like the Son of Poseidon. I posted on my blog about her yarn, and stashed her yarn on Ravelry.

I bought Tally Youngblood (from the Uglies series) because of the name, and I was blown away by the intensity of color!

I can't wait to get the Percy Jackson: Party Ponies colorway.

I loved the Florida Beaches colourway. My sister would completely flip for the Percy Jackson yarn - she adores the series (and I have to agree that they're pretty fun reads).

Hazely said...

Grapes of Wrath is cool. Apropos of very little, I was just listening to a news story about baboons in South Africa stealing the best grapes because the vineyards are encroaching on their foraging grounds. But have no fear, the wrath of the vineyard owners comes to nought because the baboons are protected!

LOVE Grapes of Wrath - Merino Lace! I also Tweeted about it.

HolyCuteness said...

Isn't it so pretty! I love Jesse's Merino Lace. I have a skein in 'Rose Hathaway' from her Vampire Academy colorways. I started a project in it and it just didn't show it off right, so it's been reskeined and waiting for just the right pattern now!

Katie said...

The O Henry colorway is gorgeous!
