Bitsy Knits Sock Yarn Giveaway!



Today, we have a gorgeous sock yarn giveaway from Bitsy Knits called "Curry" and it was originally inspired by our May "Spice Market" box and was featured in our June box last month. I think it is just a gorgeous mix of burnt oranges, browns and a hint of rust. It should be a perfect autumnal colorway!

This is a special new yarn of Bitsy's called "Artisan Sock" which has a slight thick and thin look reminiscent of handspun. This is spun in the USA! You will find many yummy local fibers in Bitsy's store.

One of the yummiest listings I have seen in her shop has been this "Dragon Riders of Pern Sock club". I haven't read the series but the cover art colors are beautiful!

We're giving away this beautiful "curry" yarn today! Please visit Bitsy Knits, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. The winner will be chosen later in the week, please use facebook/twitter/plurk updates to gain extra entries!

Right off the bat, I would love a SpinOlution Mach II Spinning Wheel. But, if it has to be a fiber pick, I would choose Beau Brummel Bitsy's Sock - Superwash Merino High Twist Sock Yarn. I already have the Hawaiian Orchids fiber!

Oh wow! This link is definitely an enabler to buy more yarn that I really really need (right!!) right now. I just love the Precious Gems Kid Mohair Laceweight. It's too bad there's only one skein, it would make a marvellous shawl!

Loved many things at the shop but the curry is actually me favorite. I'm a sucker for anything orange...

I love the "Birds in Flight" sock yarn- If its still there on payday its mine!

Kelli said...

I rather like the Uruguayan Superfine Merino Lace Yarn - "Blue Morpho." That could be because I am drawn to more muted colors in similar shades.

Tala said...

I love the pops of chartreuse and berry against the aquas of the BFL roving 'Moonlight Jazz'. And I'm so curious - she's from the Lehigh Valley, and I grew up there! Wonder where exactly!

Wow- I love that curry colourway- especially in the laceweight! I also think the notion of colourways derived form the scifi/fantasy series is unique- and very, very cool!
