Bitsy Knits Sock Yarn Giveaway!

Today, we have a gorgeous sock yarn giveaway from Bitsy Knits called "Curry" and it was originally inspired by our May "Spice Market" box and was featured in our June box last month. I think it is just a gorgeous mix of burnt oranges, browns and a hint of rust. It should be a perfect autumnal colorway!

This is a special new yarn of Bitsy's called "Artisan Sock" which has a slight thick and thin look reminiscent of handspun. This is spun in the USA! You will find many yummy local fibers in Bitsy's store.

One of the yummiest listings I have seen in her shop has been this "Dragon Riders of Pern Sock club". I haven't read the series but the cover art colors are beautiful!

We're giving away this beautiful "curry" yarn today! Please visit Bitsy Knits, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. The winner will be chosen later in the week, please use facebook/twitter/plurk updates to gain extra entries!
