Even More Stash Giveaway: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock
People, I am sorry that I left you for a week there. I have no good excuse or even explanation. I can say that I had acupuncture for the first time, and lost part of Tuesday and Wednesday to being in a weird, blissed-out, pain-free haze. But is that a good reason not to blog? No, it is not. However, I offer you this: a winner of the last stash giveaway, and another chance to win some beautiful yarn from our one-cat, smoke-free household.
First up: the Random Number Generator selected Wendy of the lovely blog Dragonfly Willow to receive the Mirasol Tupa (rav lnk)! Congratulations, Wendy. The rest of you, pop over to her blog to see a pair of vampire mittens she just made (and maybe even to congratulate her – it’s good luck for next time, right?).
Second, the stash giveaway for this week is two more skeins of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock (rav lnk), this time in self-striping colors Tickled Pink and Lorikeet. These colors are lovely; I had a whole yarn photo shoot this morning (picture me telling the yarn to make love to the camera, and you’re not far off), but couldn’t quite do justice to them. The Lorikeet is a mix of purple, red, and yellow. You can see that the Tickled Pink is doing a little back handspring over the Lorikeet; maybe I got too artsy with the photos this time. Feel free to post questions about the yarn in the comments, too, if the photo doesn’t give you the information you need. But, hey, it’s free yarn – what’s not to love?
Post a comment on any part of the blog between now and 9 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 13 to be entered in the drawing for the yarn. And stay tuned: later this week I’ll tell you about my visit to Mystic River Yarns in Connecticut. [Fantastic for my soul, not as good for my wallet.]
