I’ve made a habit of entering every Knit Picks giveaway that’s advertised on Facebook. I figure, what’s the harm? It takes hardly any time, and usually the giveaways point me in the direction of a decent blog. I never expected to actually win something, but I did!
I entered the Bare Gloss Fingering (70% Merino, 30% Silk) giveaway on the Fresh Stitches blog and wound up with three skeins of wonderful yarn!
Aren’t they magificient? They’re meant to be dyed, but I’ve never done that before, and quite frankly I’m afraid to try. I would love to dye these in a gray tonal, but I’m pretty sure I’ll end up with three skeins of black yarn if I make an attempt. I think I’ll hold onto them until I work up the nerve to try dyeing. I thought about maybe making a natural colored shawl, but would that be too boring?
Whatever this yarn becomes in the future, I’m sure it’ll be beautiful. Thank you Fresh Stitches and Knit Picks!
