Out of Step Dyeworks Vampire Girl yarn giveaway!



I am so excited to feature Out of Step Dyeworks today! I am just filled with yarn admiration for this lovely blood-red skein of BFL Aran yarn dyed by the lovely and talented Amy Klimt. This is the most beautiful red, I think- one that is so dark and rich, it's almost a cool color!

For August, Amy dyed the most interesting "Mantilla" colorways! I just loved the color combination, it just isn't everyday you see a lime green/ turquoise and grey and black and brown all in the same skein- amazing!

We're giving away this delicious Vampire Girl skein today! Just visit Out of Step Dyeworks, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below- extra points if you twitter, facebook, plurk or ravelate about it too!

I really like the electric peacock yarn. I see a cool lace scarf in that.

SovereignCrux said...

I think that I am a fan of the 12 Bar Blues- Alpaca/Silk/Cashmere Sport Yarn due to how soft it looks, like a little chartreuse kitten you just have to touch again and again.
