Wandering Wool Opalescent Yarn Giveaway!


I'm having a moment with this yarn this morning. Wandering Wool sent in samples of her delicious "Opalescent" yarn for this month which is a beautifully soft and luxurious blend of 40/40/20 Baby Alpaca/wool/silk. This colorway is called: Amazon Orchid and it is speaking to me!

This yarn is the kind you desperately want to knit with, but will be content to pet until the most perfect pattern comes along- preferably one as close to your face as possible!

If you would like a chance to win this gorgeous skein of yarn, 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 in a few days- probably Sunday or Monday, so please take some time to share this with your online social network as well for extra points!

The yarn is all really gorgeous and I wish I could afford to buy enough for my next sweater project. Instead, since you mentioned how soft and face-time ready the prize yarn is, how about that lovely cowl pattern/kit? (http://www.etsy.com/listing/80698472/cowl-kit-knitting-pattern-and-hand-dyed) Want it!

Gorgeous!
