Wandering Wool Rock Creek Sock Giveaway!


I just finished a shawl I've been working on for a while. I am wondering if any of you get that itch right after you finish something- like you've got to find the perfect project to trump the last one? I'm feeling it today, and looking at Wandering Wool's shop makes it feel more like a fever than an itch!

Wandering wool
does semi-solids like Paddington does marmalade. What's even more awesome is she occasionally puts things on clearance and you get stuff at an amazing price. Not that her prices now aren't amazing, but you know!

We're giving away this skein of her Rock Creek Sock yarn in her "Aurora Borealis" colorway. Which, let me tell you, is so beautiful it hurts (especially if you like deep cool colors like me!)

Please visit Wandering Wool today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those extra social networking pings as entries too, so shout out on Facebook, twitter, pin this on pinterest, etc!

I think the "Royalty" superwash worsted would make a great pair of house slippers!

Mara / moonsister said...

I loooove all her semisolids!

Mulberry Fibers said...

I can't decide between "Georgia Peach" and "Hydrangea" - both are so aptly named!

storiedyarns said...

I like the Aurora Borealis but Cinderella is very nice, too!

One of the most wonderful yarns Wandering Wool has in her shop is the single ply Amazon Orchid. I was lucky enough to get a sample in the last month box and I love it. It's an amazing colorway and a really soft and springy yarn. Perfect for next to the skin.

The colors of the yarns are breathtaking. I love the BFL Sock Yarn - Hand Dyed 75/25 BFL/Nylon Fingering Weight Yarn in Royalty Colorway

I love the Aurora Borealis, it is great! Other than that, Mourning Dove is super inviting!

I actually love the colour of the giveaway yarn the most, all greys and purples in the shop are also wonderful, e.g. merino sock yarn in Chimney Sweep shade. Will tweet, too.
