One of a Kind Etsy shop and a GIVEAWAY!

It's been almost a year now since I launched my own website. Before that I was on Etsy, and though I LOVE Etsy it does have some limitations. A year later and my website is still running smoothly and going strong, however I'm missing the flexibility that Etsy offers for limited quantity products. Anyways, a roundabout way of saying that I have re-launched my Etsy site to feature all kinds of wonderful One of a Kind skeins of yarn.

I've got several boxes of yarns that I selfishly stash away for my own personal use. Chris and I both love to take a day off once in a while from dying our permanent collection colourways and experiment with new ones. Sometimes they work out perfectly and fit into my grand plan for the collection and are added to the repertoire. Other times they are lovely and perfect but just don't quite fit in to the TFA scheme. These are the precious skeins that I hoard away. Sometimes I give one or two to my mom or sister, but most of them I end of saving for myself! I have so many and there is no possible way that I could knit them all, so I've decided it's time to share. That's where the Etsy site comes in. I'll post One of a Kind colourways as I make them in very limited quantities, batches of one, two or three skeins, mostly in sock yarn because that's what I experiment with the most, and hopefully there will be some TFA fans out there who like the thrill of knitting with yarn that is absolutely One of a Kind! 

I've also listed the Kits on the Etsy site, because kits are fun! I will also be adding rovings and other yarn bases as I dye them. I'm really looking forward to having the freedom to be as creative as I want to be! Crazy yarns, subtle yarns, whatever I feel like. No rules, just pretty yarns.

So, that brings us to the part in the post that you've all been waiting for... the GIVEAWAY! I'll be giving away one skein of this lovely green, yellow, brown yarn called Spring to one lucky commenter. To enter, simply leave a comment telling me your favorite colour and be sure to include your e-mail address so I can get ahold of you should you win. I will announce a winner next Saturday. Good luck!
