Yarn Giveaway May 2014

 

Yarn Giveaway May 2014 is two skeins of Paton’s beautiful Silk Bamboo and the awesome book by Denise Layman, How to Knit Fashionable SCARVES on Circle Looms.

A book on scarves in the month of May when you live in Florida or any warm climate is a bit off I must admit. But for one thing many of you live in places where a scarf is not to much. Actually this gear is still in the front of your closet if only for a brisk night-time walk.

Yarn Giveaway May 2014The book includes 12 really cool scarfs. Some perfect for cold to cool temperatures. But there is one in this book and that is the scarf on page 40 which I call Trans-Seasonal. It is a lace stitch beauty – that is light, airy and an oh so pretty in pink.

Among the list of materials is Silk Bamboo yarn. A great choice for a light scarf and Yes there really is bamboo and silk in this blend. As you can see in the picture is looks great over a nice girly sport t-shirt.

If you have never had a skein of bamboo silk to work with – you have missed out.

Paton does this blended yarn very well with gorgeous pastels and vibrant rich jewel tones at a reasonable price.

Now here comes your chance to try to yarn our for yourself for the great price of FREE. You just have to be the winner.  Well here is a little more corporate information on the yarn …

    I love pattern books. I enjoy making scarves as long as I’m using only one or two colors. I am making a 3 – color striped scarf right now and it’s a real pain in the neck to pass the yarn through the center of my work every time I have to change colors. It is coming out nice though. I sure do enjoy your giveaways.

    Thank you for the wealth of information and inspiration. With four small children, it is nice to be able to hand make accessories for the kids that no one else at school has, not to mention that this craft has been great therapy for arthritis. I hope to pass down the craft to my children so they too can make items for themselves and for others.
    Cheers!

  68. D.A. Fox May 5, 2014 at 1:41 am Reply

    Thanks so much for another great giveaway! I have never used Bamboo yarn before so this would be something great to try! I also love the book. I’ve borrowed it from the library. I have a lot of family and making scarves through the year, even summer, is helpful to have them ready for fall birthdays and Christmas gifts! So I’m loving this give-away!

    My Mom did end up giving a loom to the little girl she babysits. I have loaned her one once, and when she got this she made her hat the first day. It was a little small, as she rushed, wanted to complete it, but she was still so proud. I’ve passed your website on to her family too, so they can get patterns and videos for her to watch! Appreciate all you do!
