A Giveaway for the Yarn Hoarder

Did you ever have one of those weekends that felt longer than it is? Usually the opposite is true, but I had such a nice weekend. I left work early Friday and got some errands out of the way. I then lit some candles, made some tea, and crafted the afternoon away. On Saturday I did a little shopping, made some scones, crafted a bit more, and then spent the evening with the family. And today, I made a winter wreath (I'll show you that next), had the obligatory cup of tea, and even painted my nails so that it looked like an adult did them. It was just simply one of those highly enjoyable weekends where nothing big happened, but was full of a lot of little happy moments. Very hyggeligt.

Anyway, I'm hoping to share a smidgen of my happiness with you in the form of a little giveaway. I had joined a yarn subscription box, and have yet to make any of the projects for the simple reason that I simply cannot get caught up with the other project to-dos I have, so rather than let this languish I'd rather pass it on to a good home. 


Up for grabs is one skein of Sweet Paprika's Grazioso yarn. You can see the delicious yarn make-up here:


This is a lace-weight yarn that is a beautiful silk and linen blend in a light misty green color that I believe is called 'lichen.' Two shawl patterns will also come your way--one crochet and one knit (the knit one comes with a knitting chart). I don't have a good picture of the patterns, but they are available on Ravelry if you'd like to take a closer look. Click here for the knit pattern, and here for the crochet pattern.

Also included is a bag of wee beads that you can work into your shawl, along with a clasp to keep it secure while you're wearing it.


So if you fancy winning this little lot--


--leave me a comment on this post. Make sure it's linked to your email or that you include it in your comment as if you're a 'no reply' commenter I won't be able to contact you if you win. I'll hold the drawing on Sunday, December 18th, so you've got about two weeks to enter. I'll close comments at 11:59 pm EST on December 17th. Good luck!

  1. I can't imagine how you could give that away. I do understand how having the kit sitting there can make you feel guilty. I am sure the new owner will enjoy your wonderful gift.

  8. sounds like a lovely weekend. I used to so enjoy weekends like that. At the minute I just can't. Do you live with your parents or nearby? I am lucky enough that mine are just a 15 min drive away

  9. Aren't those weekends just the best? Hustle and bustle is highly overrated.
    I've been wanting to make a shawl and this lichen color would look nice to offset my rosy red winter cheeks. ;-) You are sweet to share. Happy Holidays!

  12. Not sure if this giveaway is international, but I'm putting my name down just in case. I'm very attracted to the beads and clasp. Of course the yarn too. The knitting pattern will be wasted on me tho' as I'm still in the dish cloth phase but I'm up for a crochet shawl.

  17. Thank you Bethany for being so generous! It's a wonderful prize. The knitting pattern is really nice and leaves are always a good idea! I made a couple of shawls in the past with leaves and it gives me joy to wear them. The clasp is beautiful.

  20. Such beautiful yarn. I would love to win this yarn. I usually buy the usual brands sold at hobby and craft stores. Haven't found a yarn store in my area so winning this yarn would be great.
