Today, I have two skeins of 100% silk to give away- a heavy worsted weight yarn hand- dyed by Serendipity Fibers (that’s me!). The yarn is my Asha Handpainted Silk Singles, in a limited- run colorway or peaches, pale pinks and yellows called Bunny. (It is an Easter thing, I’m told. This is what happens when you let friends name colorways after a few glasses of Madiera wine.) 165 yards of singles Bombyx silk per skein. This stuff is amazing, people- like buttah.
Want a skein? There are two skeins here; each will gain a new home this weekend. Comment below with the funniest, most embarrassing or the most interesting thing to happen to you all week; the Random number generator will pick one winner, and I’ll handpick the other based on who made us laugh the longest. The deadline for comments is… (excuse me as I randomly pick a time)… 1200 Eastern time, 15 March 2008. Good luck!
Random bit of other- blog promotion: I’ve been poring over Mochimochi Land lately, and I’m just crazy about this blog. I have a huge soft spot for amigurumi, but it’s usually done in crochet and my crochet- fu is pretty lacking. This site has pictures, info and patterns of knit amigurumi (which I may be mispelling, but which isn’t in my spell check) and damn. Damn. Damn! The cute factor is stratospheric.
I mean, really. That’s fantastic, and it is so going on my Ravelry queue -which, by the way, is absolutely out of hand as of late. Anyways- go check it out. There are even free patterns!
(Notes to self: next entry- photos of spinning, where is that book website?, photos of smoke ring, photos of poor sad sock.)
