Southern Mystic Zodiac Yarn Giveaway!


Southern Mystic has a beautiful collection of "Zodiac" fibers and yarns. I think it's absolutely wonderful! Pictured above is the "Aries" colorway. I know there are a lot of Aries in our Ravelry group (tons of spring b-days!) And I'm an Aries too!

According to Julie (Southern Mystic) ""Aries" is like a big, well-armed toddler. The most primal and physically powerful of the zodiac, it gets its drive and energy from the planet Mars. Irrepressible, ambitious, outgoing and impulsive, Aries is also the innocent of the zodiac, without the experiences through the ages that have made the other signs more internal and reflective. This can be a positive, as those born under Aries are generally happy, exuberant, optimistic and (perhaps overly) trusting."

We're giving away this gorgeous DK weight yarn (275 yds) today! Just visit Southern Mystic, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week, so please take a moment to Facebook/twitter for extra chances to win!

I love the Eastern Dragon coloray that I purchased in January. Now I might have to go back and get the Aries colorway in celebration of my birthday!

Diana said...

I love the Capricorn lambswool merino! I'm a Cappy, and those colors are spot on. :) I'm with an Aries man, and the Zodiac Yarn would be perfect to knit him something with it!

Nola said...

ohh - i don't even have to go to her site to say I want the Capricorn top, more of the easter dragon thread, and probably several other things! LOVE! <3

Maryn said...

Beautiful, all of it! I'd love the Scorpio yarn, and to visit her studio - I'm just up the road from Arlington. :)

Jenni said...

Zodiac Yarn, Scorpio, SW Merino is my favorite! and not just because of my zodiac sign : )

Susan F. said...

I love the Suncatcher, Virgo, & Scorpio yarns.

Michelle said...

Tweetie Tweet!! Some Facebook love, and I'm totally biased to the Aries Colorway (as an Aries).

Thanks so much for sharing!!

Reivenna said...

The Aquarius Zodiac yarn is somehow subdued and very vibrant simultaneously. <3

Jennifer said...

My favorite is Scorpio (since I am one!) and I already own a lovely skein of that yarn! The Libra colorway is also eye catching!

Annette said...

Beautiful yarns! In addition to the offering, I just love the Zodiac yarn for Cancer (my sign) or the Eastern Dragon. I had to add her shop to my favorites.

Natalie Servant said...

The Virgo & Capricorn fiber. Want. Must spin something else first.

sherry said...

Yep, Aries here, too.

Love the dye jobs on just about all the yarns and rovings.

Though I'm seriously considering those scoured fleeces. They look lovely! Good price, as well, since most of the 'hard work' has been done for you.

Ms.Curdy said...

Bamboo Yarn, Fun With Primaries

Melrose said...

My daughter is a Scorpio and i love that colorway!

SJS said...

That's some lovely yarn! In the zodiac series, I am quite partial to my own sign, Capricorn! Also, I really like the Elemental colorways, and I would love to try my hand at spinning some Navajo Churro.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I would have to choose Aries since April 7th is my birthday.

Zombie Queen said...

I love the Dk weight Fun with Primaries! Such pretty colors!

The Elemental Fiber Metal is really pretty, I love the spots of white throughout it, like a lot of your other colors

Marianna said...

I really love the Scorpio yarn.

sock2girl said...

Katrina said...

Zodiac Fiber, Scorpio, Superwash Merino Lambswool, 4 oz
Since I am a Scorpio I will pick this one.

Hillside said...

I love the 'Air' elemental yarn. Perhaps because I am a Libran?

ZombieCat said...

I'm an Aries! At least according to the "old" zodiac. I don't recognize the new one. :) My husband is a Sagittarius, so it's no wonder that I love that colorway! Perhaps more than my own, but I'd be willing to try it! ;)

theonlyevidence said...

Love the Elemental Fiber: Metal merino/bamboo/nylon!

Apart from "Everything!" -- just like at the bakery -- the "Playing in the Dyepot" skein is awesome. I'm also interested in the custom spinning of pet fur ... I'm not technically a Crazy Cat Lady (14 is the minimum necessary in Washington), but I do have a beloved kitty .... Count me in!

Love the Zena 100% polwarth handspun yarn- 258yds of sportweight yarn

Thinking about how soft the yarn spun from the baby angora rabbit and Merino batt will be. And I also love the idea of using Zodiac signs for yarn colors.

Diane said...

I had a hard time picking a favorite, but I really love the Eastern Dragon yarn! Tweeted and facebooked as well. :)

Kat said...

ZOMG! This is my first time in this shop. It has been added to my favorites. I love, love, love it all!!!
I was looking at pictures and fell in love with the Cancer roving. I had to laugh as I am a Cancer. Way too cool!
