Happy weekend & GIVEAWAY!

I am quite smitten with my new Deep Sea cashmere Haruni Shawl. So smitten, that I just don't think it's fair that I'm the only one who gets to cosy up to something so lovely. So, in order to make things right I'd like to giveaway one skein of my Purple Label Cashmere Sock yarn in the Deep Sea colourway to one lucky winner!


The winner will receive the center-pull ball of yarn pictured above. The crystal plate, the decorative ceramic birds, and the labeled skein are all just props to attempt to make that photo a little more interesting... To enter simply leave a comment on this post, be sure to include your e-mail address so I can get ahold of you should you win! A winner will be chosen at random and announced next Friday Oct. 1st. OMG I can't believe we're this close to being October! Crazy. Time flies! You'd better start knitting your cashmere scarves and shawls quick if you're going to have them ready by the first frost!

Happy weekend!

  112. What a generous giveaway! I've just discovered your yarn and think it's simply beautiful. I just noticed you plan to start a club for 2011 and I can't wait to sign up! Living in Yellowknife -so cold and without a local yarn shop if you can believe it!- has really made me understand what a profoundly cheering effect receiving *good* mail can have.
    Thanks so much for this lovely opportunity, Tanis. :->

  116. Your shawl is breathtaking, Haruni is a gorgeous pattern, made more so by this rich, luxurious yarn. Thanks for the chance to win some. I'm not as talented a lace knitter as you, but Haruni is worth the effort.

  133. Haha, ok, I'm going to leave a comment. Why do I want this yarn? Because I'm dying things in my kitchen using kool aid that aren't nearly as lovely as your work! Also, in an effort to finally create blue yarn I bought kool aid that came in a blue pack and turned out to be .... pink powder. So, I've been totally ripped off by the colour blue and need blue wooly goodness to gloss over kool aid's deceptive packaging ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  134. I've been wanting to make a shawlette in that colour and in cashmere, it would be so luscious.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Your yarn is so yummy. I would love to have that colour too and do the shawl with it. Thanks for the chance.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Your Haruni is so lovely. I almost got through my own Haruni, but my interchangeable needle broke while on Chart 2, and I didn't have the heart to try and pick up the 40 or so stitches that got dropped, so I just frogged it. I might be willing to take another stab at it (on a fixed circular) if I won yarn from you. Your colors are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
