Arrrghh! Stupid beautiful colors of the rainbow! This is making it very hard to yarn diet...

Alisa said...

Yippie! I love your yarn sales!

Cat said...

Oh my word, what gorgeous yarn! Can't afford to buy yarn right now (although I'd love to, on a college budget), but I'm going to throw my hat in the ring on the off-chance I win something on one entry!

sunnie fairy said...

oh, that yarn is calling me, I tell you.

Jessica Jo said...

Someday (soon I hope) I will learn to spin and then I can spend even more money on stuff I don't "need" from your shop... So for now I am going to contend myself with hoping to win. Grand prize or first prize would be great, thanks! (I emailed you yesterday)

LilChickadee said...

Such pretty colors!

adorably alice said...

Your stuff is always amazing. I may have to order something (even though I just bought something last week) just to have an extra chance to win one of those prizes!

filmgirl said...

coexistlove said...

Oh it is going to be so tempting to shop again :)

TJJ said...

I love your yarn. I still have a sample here that I haven't knit yet that I take out and squish every now and then. I will definitely be buying yarn this week. Thanks for running the great sale/contest. :)

Happy Socktoberfest, and what a generous contest!

Sally said...

I might have to break open the piggy bank to get some of your sock yarn!

Kelsey said...

You've really outdone yourself with the Miss Austen colorway-- a thousand 'wows' honestly aren't enough. Thanks, as always, for being a wonderful dyer to buy from!

I just bought some of your labels and I think they will be perfect for my handmade gifts. Thanks for the contest.

Ooohhh, I was trying not to collect any more sock yarn. I might need just one new color though..=)

Karen said...

what a great contest......just found your etsy shop and blog!

mj said...

I had just decided at the end of September that I wasn't going to buy anymore yarn until January. Then you came along with your sale.
Alas, I have no willpower, I can't resist your sales.

Klina Kloen said...

I don't need more yarn, really...I don't...but maybe some fibre? But I love the Nightmare Before Christmas...

JulieD said...

I just found your store on Etsy after working a night shift, which makes me very weak against saying no to beautiful colors like you have. :-)

Have a nice week!

Nat said...

beautiful yarn!

Jennifer said...

How fun and generous! Now, how to choose what to buy on sale...

Jacy said...

Ack! I shouldn't have hesitated! I was eyeing MISS AUSTEN - 4 oz Bamboo/Merino Top and then got distracted and someone else snagged it!

This is an incredible contest! I'll have to scour the shop to see if there isn't something else I "just can't live without"

craft-chick said...

Count me in the contest!

Sherri said...

Very excited about the contest - love your yarn!

Peace,
Liz
