I'm giving away this beautiful handspun yarn just for you!

Yep. I made it myself.   Just for you!

3 ply yarn [loosely plied] in silk and silk/angora.  Sport/DK weight.

Bundle #2:  Autumn.   404 yards total.  
3 ply yarn  in silk, alpaca and superwash wool.  DK weight.

  1. I LOVE them both, but the one that draws me is the Misty Summer. It has very tranquil colors in it. I would want to make a blanket or something like that as I am not skilled enough to read a crochet pattern, or maybe it is that I haven't given it enough effort. I follow your blog and LOVE IT. I may not read it daily, but I catch up on it at least twice a week and I learn so much from it. You are amazing Robin, I love reading about your adventures in what you have done in your life and the new things you have the guts to try, while others avoid those things in fear we will make mistakes.

  2. Hi Robin! I was led to your blog by your post on Chickens in the Road today. I loved it! So here I am, and just in time to enter your contest for this beautiful yarn. I am a small project knitter so I'd probably make a hat, mittens, scarf ... in that order. I love the blue, but the autumn is beautiful also. Well, now I'm off to explore your blog. I just bought a spinning wheel of my own and I need inspiration! Thanks!

  3. I tweeted your giveaway! :) If I have time today, I'll add it to my blog. (It's not like I need any more yarn...haha!)

  4. I came over because of your post on CITR. I love the yarn. I am more of an autumn color kinda girl. My girls have been begging me to teach them to knit or crochet, so this is perfect. Thanks for the chance to win!

  5. I think they're both lovely. Blue is my favorite color, but right now I'm drawn to autumn shades. There is some blue in the autumn yarn, so it's the best of both worlds. Thanks for the generous giveaway.

  6. I can't decide which one I like more - both are so lovely. I am thinking a snuggly, warm hooded baby cardigan will be perfect with this yarn.

  7. They are both gorgeous! I am envious of your talent! ;) I am torn on what to make...these cold Canadian winters sure could use some snugly leg warmers or fingerless gloves for the fall or a nice warm hat (not a toque...maybe something a little more fashionable, any ideas?

  8. I seemed to have overlooked the final submission time...maybe you are accepting late entries...?

    Either way I am glad I stopped over and will poke a round a little

  9. I am pretty sure I missed this giveaway but wanted to let you know I LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog!! Thank you for sharing with the world!
