As the Red Hot Chili Peppers once said, “give it away, give it away, give it away now”.
Hello one and all! This may be your first time on my site, or you may be a regular reader, but regardless of who you are, this post is for you. Because you like free stuff, right? Of course you do.
Before we get to the good (free) stuff, we need to confront an ugly truth; namely, that unless you live near Belfast, ME, or your LYS carries their stuff, there’s a chance you haven’t heard of Good Karma Yarns. It’s a shame, because they put a ton of work into making some of the finest worsted-weight yarn I’ve ever worked with. Today, I’m going to give you a chance to experience their work first-hand.
This is “Mouse Ears”, Good Karma’s latest colorway. Soft grays and hints of delicate pink. Just what you’d expect from the name, I think. It’s 210 yards of worsted-weight heaven, 60% alpaca, 40% wool. I’m quite enamored with the stuff, and even bought a skein to keep for myself. The second skein, though, is what I’ll be giving away.
So here’s the deal: it’s a week to the dreaded holiday know as Valentine’s Day. In the spirit of that, I want you to tell me something you love about your favorite yarn, project, or about knitting in general. Each person who comments on this post between now and 11:59 PM EST, February 14th, will be entered into a random-number generator drawing. The winner gets the yarn! If you live outside the U.S. we can work something out with shipping, but for the most part I’ll cover shipping costs.
And hey, I’d love for you to come back and read more of my blog, so comments on future posts between now and V-Day will get you additional entries into the drawing. One entry per post commented on, not per comment. But hey, try to keep your comments substantial. I won’t enter you if you just say “yo”; at least ask me how my day was.
