Knits in Class Forest Floor Sock Yarn Giveaway!


I get really excited when I see fibers and yarns with beautiful earthy colors in them. The leaves are turning all around, there is a subtle crispness in the air, and I'm prepping the house to settle in for winter. Knits in Class has sent in this beautiful "forest floor" half skein of sock yarn as a giveaway, and it is so beautiful! I'm thinking it would even be great to make "camo" socks for the outdoorsy people in your life.

We're giving away this beautiful 200 yard skein today. Please visit Knits in Class Fiber studio, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner this weekend, so please take a moment and facebook/twitter/plurk/blog about this giveaway for extra entries!

The merino single ply worsted yarn in Smoke caught my eye. It reminded me of the fog we had just a few morning ago, soft and all encompassing.

I just "dyed" and went to yarn heaven! I love the vibrant colors and have my eye on the Merino single ply worsted in the orange color scheme. I can imagine mittens that are drying on the heater, making the house smell like winter, giving me a memory of playing in the snow when I was a child. Pardon me while I drool a bit...

Em said...

The Mars batts are so pretty, but I wouldn't turn down the Art Nouveau sock yarn either :)

Sylvie said...

I particularly like the Mister Darcy, Forest Floor, Art Nouveau, and Grape Crush colorways.The dye kits that include yarn with them are also awesome.

Lauren said...

Bah, I love all the colors in her sock yarn tab. The pumpkin and forest floor really make me think of autumn though.

Chris said...

"Smoke" is a beautifully subtle colorway.

craftygirl83 said...

I'd love to try some of the Greener Shades dyes. I love this sock yarn too! :) I'd love to win!

Art Nouveau colorway is divine. I'm imagining a lovely pair of socks on a cool day, or a nice lightweight shawl on a crisp morning. Beautiful!

All the yarn is beautiful but the Merino single ply in Emerald City is my favorite.

Shaded Mazoku said...

They don't sell grape soda here, except in a select few stores to twice the price of normal soda, but when I lived in Tokyo for five months, I lived off of the stuff, so my favourite is definitely the Grape Crush yarn.

(We do have something called grape soda, but it's grapefruit soda, which, while delicious, is not the same.)

TinkerTots said...

I think this skein wants to come to my house to be a scarf... But it might need a friend. Maybe Art Nouveau!

Beth said...

I am ordering the pdf booklet of instructions for using their dyes. Always interested in learning new techniques!

suburban prep said...

I think that the Sport yarn, superwash, 270 yds, Verdigris is wonderful and the color is just beautiful.

I like the deep purple in the Merino Single ply worsted weight, 225 yards in Grape Crush. The colorway Smoke in worsted weight is also very eye catching. I can see a hat or fingerless mitts knitted out of it.
