Picking and Spinning merino braid giveaway!


Fresh off the dyeing rack- Pickin and Spinning's May samples were inspired by the song "Are you going to Scarborough Fair". Now I'm going to have that song in my head all day :)

I'm excited to say that Kim now offers batts in her shop! The Scarborough Fair batt is so lovely too! There really is something for everyone at Pickin and Spinning!

We're giving away a full sized Merino braid version of Kim's May samples! Just visit PickinandSpinning today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Extra entries awarded to those who facebook and twitter about this as well!!

Aha!! My DH has been asking for some yellow and red socks. What do you know? I think I found it with the Paper Lanterns Kettle Dyed Fingering Weight Sock Yarn. Can't quite tell if it's red or orange, but he's colorblind anyway which is why he wants crazy bright colors.

This was my favourite song growing up and the roving very much reminds me of a good candy store. Yummy sugar high.
