Quaere Fibre Sock Yarn Giveaway!




I think this might be my favorite Quaere Fibre sock yarn ever! That is saying a lot! This so aptly named "Iris" colorway just transports me to late Spring when the Iris is blooming and the weather is perfect here. I think Janel did a fantastic job capture just the essence of Iris on this yarn- and with the hint of gleaming stellina, it's just perfect!

Lots of beautiful yarn offered at Quaere Fibre. I particularly love the self-striping yarn offered- so pretty!

If you would like a chance to win this gorgeous yarn, please visit Quaere Fibre, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. We'll count your sharing on various social networks as entries! Make sure you let us know where you shared in the comments.

I especially love the Hand Dyed Worsted Weight Yarn in Peacock! So many lovely things in her shop, it is hard to choose!

urbanprairie said...

Like I could pick just one. I totally agree with you on the Iris colorway. Reminds me of when it finally starts to get warm and sunny out and there's all these giant beautiful irises out that smell fantastic.
In addition, I'm fanning all over the Relish and Lotus colorway as well as the Newly Minted.
Thanks for reminding me that I need to buy more yarn from Quaere. ;-p

Boston Knitter said...

Janel is wonderful. I think my favorite will always be Witches Britches, then Harajuku. I met her at a Meet the Dyer event when I was back in Rhode Island about a month ago, and I finally got to fondle the yarn in person. So worth the almost-two-hour drive!

Pot Stickers 2 is very pretty. Perfect for that first pair of socks to wear as Autumn cools enough for wool socks.
