Bitsy Knits Lace Yarn Giveaway!


You may recall a yarn I featured in the video- a really interesting nylon-wrapped wool laceweight from Bitsy Knits in "M. Zephyritis" colorway. I am so curious about this yarn! I know nylon gives wool strength, so I could do an intricate lace shawl and do an extreme blocking session and it would hold up to it? So cool! I happen to really love the colors here too.

Can I brag a little? I recently finished one of Bitsy's shawl kits and it turned out really beautifully! Check it out:

We're giving away this 50 gram skein of Bitsy's "Wool Crepe" yarn today! Please visit Bitsy Knits, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing a winner after this weekend (I have a neat giveaway for the weekend I'll be posting tomorrow) so make sure you twitter and facebook about this for extra entries!

I love the Blue Morpho roving.

Your shawl is just lovely! Beautiful work. I've never knit with wool crepe yarn before. I think it would be fun to try a new laceweight yarn. I visited Bitsy Knit's etsy shop and fell in love with the "Blue Morpho" lace weight yarn. It looks yummy and soft and I would make a huge EZ Pi shawl to wrap myself up in. ;-)

Seriously torn between the Blue Morpho merino-tencel and the Precious Gems from the February PhatFiber box.

Teresa said...

The most beautiful thing in Bitsy's shop is the handpainted bfl/silk top in the phat fiber february colorway - precious gems. Yummy.

Caroline said...

Considering my budding lace obsession, this is right up my alley! Plus, that Kido Lame Sparkling Laceweight Kid Mohair - 50gm-460yds - Phatfiber Feb colorway Precious Gems is stunning.

marsha said...

There is so much which is squee-worthy in this store. Superwash Roving in "Goodnight My Dear" is lovely! That wool crepe yarn looks very unique...and in "my" colors...be nice to take that for a spin...wait...rather, knit...

Well, let's see, I really, really want SpinOlution QUEEN BEE Folding Spinning Wheel or SpinOlution Mach II Spinning Wheel. But, if it's a fiber you want, then it would have to be Kido Lame Sparkling Laceweight Kid Mohair - 50gm-460yds - Phatfiber Feb colorway Precious Gems. Love the sparkle! I know it wants me to knit something fabulous with it!
