Vintage Purls Giveaway

Well I've been saying I'll do a yarn giveaway and after some stash diving I've come up with this lovely skein
 It's "In the Navy" and is a nice deep dusty navy semi-solid yarn.  Would make lovely socks for a man or woman and I'm finding it really hard to give it away!
In order to enter you need to leave a comment on this post; I'd love it if you followed my blog as well but you're still in if you don't.   I will send anywhere, but it will take a little longer if you're not in NZ.
ETA:  I will be closing this off on Wednesday 9am NZ time.


Oh, and here's a gratuitous kitty photo, the cage is around the fire, not a bird luckily, but isn't she gorgeous?

Oooh that is very pretty! I haven't done socks yet, but I have yarn and pattern for my first pair of kids ones now and I'm excited about starting. I'm sure I'll want some for me after that lol.

First one!
I love looking at your blog Rachelle, especially seeing your creations and your boys learning to spin!
Hope you get lots of followers from this competition.

Hi Rachelle, jumped here from TNN and I'm so glad I did. I too am an across the board crafter but YOU seem to be much more organised than I am. Will be following with interest and taking some inspiration from you - would love to spin one day. Beautiful VP yarn - DH needs new socks - would be perfect to replace the holey ones!

Julia said... Best Blogger Tips

I so plan to knit me some socks this year! I've knit socks, hats and slippers for my husband who moans frequently how none of my knitting is every for him - and now I realise it's about time I knit something for me!

Would love to knit some socks! I have added you to my list of favourite blogs :-)

Sorry Sumella, it closed yesterday and has been drawn. Webfrau was the lucky winner. I will probably do other draws in the future, but not just yet a while.
