As you probably know, I run a yarn business, and need to knit a lot of sample garments for it. I have come to realise that there are some yarns that I am not going to knit; despite feeling full of affection for them, and I have decided to release them to the knitters of the world. While I could sell these yarns, it might confuse my Yarn Workshop customers, and I really enjoy this personal blog, and the friends that I have made through it.
There is enough of each yarn for a pair of socks. I am going to use a random number generator and give them away to four people who leave comments on this post before 5 May 2009. I am happy to send them anywhere in the world, and will give them away in the order that they are listed. The yarns are:
- 2 skeins Koigu KPPPM P21481;
- 1 skein Schaefer Yarn Heather, Coretta Scott King;
- Trekking XXL Colour 175, Lot 7428;
- Trekking XXL Colour 153, Lot 7637 (while the ball band appears to have been mauled by a lion, the yarn is fine!);
