Out of Step Dyeworks DKyarn giveaway!


I used to say "happiness is hand knit socks on a cold day". I think I will amend it to "happiness is handknit anything made from Out of Step Dyework's MCN DK yarn especially in the Nanobot colorway" (pictured above!). This stuff is a dreamy blend of superwash merino and cashmere! And doesn't everything you want to knit require DK weight yarn?

I am lately developing and unhealthy obsession with the colors gray and purple. Looking at Out of Step Dyeworks' etsy shop this morning is not helping abate it! I love all of Amy's work, but I'm really yarn crushing on her October Phat Fiber box submissions!

We're giving away this beautiful skein of DK yarn (cashmere, people!) in the Nanobot colorway today. Please visit Out of Step Dyeworks, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, so please facebook, twitter, blog, ravelate about this for extra entries!

I love sock yarn in DK weight! "12 Bar Blues" would make great 'guy' socks.

Sylvie said...

These yarns look delightfully sproingy! I really like both 12 Bar Blues and Nanobot. The Glimpses Of yarns are really interesting, but I don't know if they would knit up awesome or awkward.

Gwen said...

Love the DK Glimpses of celephais. I love the teal and purple peaking out from the black.

betsy said...

The Zombie Apocalypse is fantastic! And EVERYTHING I have lined up to knit is in DK, so this would be perfect!!!

Cottage Crafts said...

I love the colour of the "Black Rose" wool, its so gorgeouse.. I have blogged about this too.. :O)

DonnaC said...

Everything is gorgeous. The midnight gargoyle begs for me to make a hat out of it!

Julie H. Rose said...

I love the grays. So subtle! I've been craving "non-colors" like this lately, as the leaves are falling off the trees and I think of the coming of winter and the snow.

Faerie-Dancer said...

Diphylla! The merino/silk lace yarn is a brillant color.

I absolutely love the DK Weight Hand Painted Yarn- Glimpses of Serannian from out of step dyeworks! All of her work is amazing but i especially love the high contrast of black with peekaboos of bright purple and bright pink. It is so fun and I'm sure it'd knit up brilliantly!

EcoZombie said...

I am a fan of any yarn that reminds me of a dark but beautiful thunderstorm, therefore, my favorite is the Hand Dyed BFL Sock Yarn- Dusky Purple, and though I do not knit, I added the Vertebral Socks Kit- Zombie Apocalypse Yarn and Knitting Pattern in a treasury a few months back, and it was the first item to be sold from that treasury. I just loved the colors as well as the zombie theme :) !

mollyjwalter said...

I heart the colorway "Color Out of Space". I just received two skeins of it in the mail today and I'm in love. Amy's work is amazing! BUY THIS YARN!

Sheila said...

So many pretty yarns! I love the BFL sock yarn in Dusky Purple and Dagon. Just can't decide which I like better.

Kimberly R. said...

twistedyarns said...

There are a lot of lovely colors in there, however my favorite is "Hand Dyed BFL Sock Yarn- Dagon".
I admittedly have a bit of an obsession with blue variegated yarns, and this one has great colors and contrast, love it!

I love this gry yarn and I adore the Black Rose. I have bought from her before and I LOVED both items.

Lindr said...

Oh my! All the pretty colors! The Black Rose is particularly striking, in my opinion. Really vibrant.

Jennifer said...

I think I have to agree, while they are all beautiful, I think the MCN DK in black rose is about the prettiest I've ever seen.

Jana said...

I love her colors. The glimpses yarns are so pretty AND the zombie apocalypse -wow. Her MCN sock base is the best and I must try the DK!!
