Counting Sheep Farm Sock Yarn Giveaway


Check out all the new My8KidsMom hand dyed goodies at The Counting Sheep Farm shop! Yes, Yes, I know it's 100 degrees outside right now (up here in the northern hemisphere anyway!) but Fall is officially only 50 days away! Think hay rides, apple picking and scrumptious handknits. You can't wear 'em if you don't start 'em!! Now is the time, folks! Get those needles clacking!

We're giving away this beautiful set of two 50g skeins of My8KidsMom superwash sock yarn. Look, now you can do two socks at a time on one big circular needle and you won't have to measure out the yarn! Just visit Counting Sheep Farm, find something you love, and come back here and let us know about it! Remember to use twitter, facebook, plurk, ravelry, your blog to help spread the word- while you're at it- let everyone know they have only 50 days til Autumn!

The light blue in SCALLYWAGS pops out at you and says, "here I am!".

Kristen said...

I love the fingering yarn in SCALLYWAGS.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I love the bold colors in the sock yarn. I also like the hand dyed worsted weight yarn in Quail. Those colors reminds me of fall and cooler weather.

Quail is a great colorway. Clever to have thought of that color scheme!

The alpaca/cormo/silk blend in Golden is to die for.

I think the Lost at Sea merino roving looks like it would be fun to spin.

I've been a fan of the Hand Dyed Worsted Weight in Desert Bloom ever since I received a sample of it in June. It's SUCH a beautiful colorway, I wish she would do it in a lighter weight though, I think it'd make an awesome pair of socks!

Anna B said...

ooo, that desert bloom merino/tencel is my favorite! It reminds me of fall, which is (of course) my all time favorite season. So anything that reminds me of fall I tend to just fall in love with!

Jean Ashley said...

I love the Beach Bum fingering weight hand-dyed yarn!

Chantel said...

I want Scallywags! Great colors!

Allison von Berg said...

My8kidsmom Hand Dyed Fingering Wt FIREWORKS love that color scheme! reminds me of bomb pops!

Yarn Envy said...

I couldn't find anything I DIDN'T like. everything was so drool worthy. The Fright Sock Yarn was really wonderful, as was the Silly Pirate Yarn. I am so bookmarking that page.

ashley0607 said...

I love ALL that is My8kidsmom! But if I am really liking the "silly Pirate" and "scallwaggs" Both are awesome just like the Counting Sheep Farm! : )

First off, as the mother of 7 kids, my hat is off to a mother of 8 who finds time to run a business!!!

I love both her "Algae" colorway as well as the "Blue Lagoon."

If we're Counting Sheep, I guess I'm first? I could barely get off the opening page with Scallywags, Beach Bum and Desert Bloom. As I went thru the I found I kept being drawn to Desert Bloom everywhere I saw it.

Do I have to pick just one?
The City of Embers is exquisite. I love the barest hint of black that it has, and the gorgeous sheen.

Starry Night is my other fave. The cool grays with that bright pop of yellow is to die for!
