Bitsy Knits Artisan Sock giveaway!



Bitsy Knits should be one of those shops you have bookmarked on your favorite yarn stores folder on your browser. Bitsy has a consistency with her products that I find beautiful. She puts a lot of time  and thought into sourcing her materials, and the final results show.

I think most people are familiar with Bisty on the show circuit- as she keeps quite busy doing larger fiber events through the year. It's really comforting to know that you can get more of that special fiber you saw at an event with just a few clicks of the mouse. Steal some time away from the day, and drop in at Bisty Knits and see what's new!

We're giving this gorgeous plum colored sock yarn away today! Artisan sock has a wonderfully subtle thick-and-thin quality that adds interest to your knitting. Please visit Bitsy Knits, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those comments that let us know you've spread the word via pinterest, facebook, twitter, ravelry as extra entries as well!
