Guess what.......Sam at the Wool Dispensary sent me FIVE beautiful skeins of yarn to giveaway to a lucky reader! Thanks Sam!
This yarn bundle includes 2 fingering weights skeins: Base Premise #1 in The Flying Fishers and Base Premise #2 in Briar Rose. It also includes 1 aran weight skein: Imperial Poison in Ogre Bogies (Ogre Bogies!!!). And it rounds out with 2 worsted wight skeins: Greater Poison in Georgia Building Castles, and my favorite Greater Poison in Danse Du Ventre. It is a lovely mix to play with and I know it will knit up into a couple great monsters, or other projects!
Not only are the names of the yarn lines based on poisons (yes, that would be so you can "pick your poison) but the color names are a hoot, too. Most are based on the circus. I love a good sense of humor in yarn. And themes. And the circus. So, what is there not to love here?
Plus, these colors are fantastic, I am totally lusting over this yarn right now and so excited to get to send some to one of you! Though they are all just lovely, my favorite is the Greater Poison because it is so soft and fluffy. And the Danse Du Ventre is and AMAZING pink. And you all know I love my pinks! I am going to have to dig through my favorites on Ravelry and pick a sweater to knit with Greater Poison for sure. Maybe I will do that now instead of working......
Alright, so go check out The Wool Dispensary blog and shop, and come back here to my blog and leave a comment about knitting at the circus. If you have never knit at the circus, then leave a comment about the closest circus-like environment you have knitted through. And if you have never knitted in anything close to a circus environment, then leave me a comment somehow relating the cirucs and knitting. I will be picking a winner by random-number next Wednesday May 23rd, so be sure to get your comment in by then!
