Wandering Wool Yarn giveaway!





I think Wandering Wool has some of the most gorgeous yarn I've seen in a while! I love the color selection and every base that I have seen come in to the sampler, has just been outstanding. Take this Udaipur base, it's a lovely 50/50 merino/silk base that is so slinky and soft!!

Check out Joelle's shop- she's specialized in solid/semi solid beauties that will take your breath away! I have to admit, I have a yarn crush on the Seven Seas colorway! So many gorgeous things to choose from, It might be easier to just buy the club :)

Please visit Wandering Wool today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later this week, so please use your social networking skills (facebook, twitter, plurk, pinterest etc) and gain extra entries by helping spread the good word.

Serve me up a little of that superwash merino worsted "Candy Yam", please!

Nanishiori said...

I'm in a "want all the colors" mood, so my favorite item would be the sock yarn mini club. Normally the cranberry bog colorway is my favorite though.

Elariel said...

I wants the Alpaca / Wool / Silk Yarn - Single-Ply DK Weight Yarn in Alpine Meadow Colorway.

My little fibre-loving heart is swooning at the blend and I just long to see how it would work up. I can't afford enough for the big snuggley poncho I *want* to make from it.... Maybe a cowl?

Melissa said...

They're all such gorgeous, rich colors! Seven Seas is my favorite, but that's partly because there's no way I could decide between so many lovely shades of burgundy/wine/cranberry...

Galia Lael said...

I admit I'm a regular lurker on WanderingWool. I think everything in the shop is drool-worthy, and I couldn't be happier about this giveaway (now all I have to do is win, lol). There are too many skeins in that shop that I love the most, so I allow myself not to choose one right now :)

Shared on FB and Twitter too.

How to choose? They're all beautiful! Especially, Hand Dyed Yarn - Superwash Merino Wool Worsted Weight in Sugar Plum Colorway.

Clarissa said...

Cranberry Bog on MCN sock is really pretty!

knitreadsleep said...

I really like the polyjuice potion colorway it's so forest like

Sheila said...

My first thought on looking through Wandering Wool was "one of each, please." My favorite is the BFL Sock yarn in the Lemongrass colorway.

J. said...

Wow! So many gorgeous colors... but I think my absolute favorite is the alpaca/wool/silk Desert Sky. Gorgeous blue!

Leah said...

I want one of each! I especially love the Black Current colorway :D

betsy said...

The superwash fingering in Amazon Orchid please! It's gorgeous!

Paulette said...

I love the rich color of her Cranberry Bog Colorway yarn - beautiful!

Jennifer said...

Oooo "Alpine Meadow"!

SilverRayven said...

I pretty well love all of her green's - so vibrant!

Sylvie said...

It's so hard to pick! The colorways that jumped out at me are Black Currant, Pirate's Cove, and Leather Bound Book, but it would obviously depend on what I was making and for whom.
I like the idea of the mini sock skeins, but since I already never use my scrap yarn, they'd probably just sit around.

sue said...

MCN sock yarn - Cranberry Bog. Love this colorway! I'm in a holiday knitting mood and this is perfect. Lot's of beautiful colorways.

Lindr said...

Having just been there this spring, I must choose Loch Ness Monster Teal Merino lace weight as my favorite. And I did 'favorite' it. It may jump into my basket soon!

Nikki said...

I actually just bought Emerald Isle and am SO excited for that to come. Finding that deep of a green in a solid is really difficult, and I have just the pattern in mind right now! My other favorite is the Opalescent yarn in the blue. I actually saw this one (no in the blue though) at a LYS, and it is so smooshy and beautiful!

TinkerTots said...

I really like the Merino/silk in the Seven Seas colorway!

Heather J said...

I can't decide her greens are exquisite! So I want a sock yarn club membership than I can just be surprised.

GardeniaPatti, Maxwell Macintyre, and family said...

I really like the sock yarn scarf pattern that comes with your choice of yarn. How do you pick just one of her colors? They are all gorgeous.

InJuneau said...

I love the yarns in the Emerald Isle and Fiddlehead Green and Spirulina colorways. (oh really, ANY of the greens!)

Tara A said...

Variegated yarns are nice, but I tend to like finished objects of of semi solids or solids better and there is a very nice selection! I really like the Pinot Noir colorway

SJS said...

These colors are so difficult to choose from! I would choose Candied Yam, California Poppy, Ink Blot, and Cranberry Bog! They're all such lovely colors!

Mary said...

the alpine meadow is lovely

Sarah said...

The cinderella colorway in sock - love it. I like the ashy grey with a bit of pink. Just like cinderella in the ashes!

chels said...

I love the purples in the gray of Cinderella!

csndyrn said...

I am liking the greens.

Mara said...

I havebeen stalking her shop for weeks now. I love almost ALL the colourways- I am a sucker for semisolids!

Jenny said...

Love that Pinebark!

Karen said...

I like Scarf Kit - Knitting Pattern and Hand Dyed MCN Sock Yarn for Tasseled Scarf and Infinity Scarf. Lovely pattern!

Josiah said...

I like the merino laceweight in foxglove.

scifiknitter said...

It's very hard to choose just one item. Lovely, lovely, lovely yarn. I'll choose the BFL fingering weight in October Morning colorway.

This shop now has a nice red heart from me.

elizabethann7936 said...

I'm a long-time drooler...I mean follower of Joelle's awesome yarn, no way I could pick just one. I could however, stand to have another skein of Sugar Plum to add to the one that I just bought on Sunday night....

FB'd and Tweeted too.

Ilona said...

The mossy cascade colorway is just the perfect green!

I love the kit for the tasseled scarf pattern. . .especially in that lovely gold color!

Team Brown said...

So many beautiful colors! I finally was able to narrow it down to just 2. It would be a toss up between Lapis Lazuli and Lemongrass. They are both so gorgeous

hitchikergal87 said...

BFL sock in Lemongrass- with a generous 464 yards! Yes, I would like that.

affiknity said...

Oh, my heart stopped beating for a second when I saw all that lovely yarn. I love the sport weight alpaca in Luna Moth colorway. Green is my color this year.

ikkinlala said...

I love it all! If I had to choose, though, I especially love the Cranberry Bog colour right now.

Marlitharn said...

The merino laceweight in Signs of Spring, definitely. I'm already fed up with winter and anything spring-like makes me happy.

SusanM said...

I really like the Cranberry Bog Merino/Cashmere/Nylon blend sock yarn, but the merino lace weight in Gray Matter is calling to me as well!!

chastitycatt said...

I can highly recommend the High Peaks MCN. I just made a shawl with the Cranberry Bog colorway and I am in love!
So many beautiful colors it's hard to choose, but that Apricot Preserves BFL keeps calling me.

syd said...

Holy smokes! Have you seen the lemon custard color way on the super wash DK? It nearly jumps off my screen, I'm in love!

lauraelih said...

I have been in such a green place lately, so I would be all over the 2-ply fingering weight in Emerald Isle
