Birthday Giveaway!

COMMENTS CLOSE AT 6PM UK TIME FRIDAY 30th JUNE!

In honour of my forthcoming birthday I've decided to run a little giveaway :-) Here is the prize:



One 100g skein of Posh Yarn "Lucia" 4-ply sock yarn in "Cosmopolitan", 30% cashmere 70% merino. This will make one pair of (posh) socks! There's more blue on the other side of the skein by the way, I showed the more "colourful" side! The yardage on the label is only for 50g, on the site it states 330m/360 yards for 100g.

All you need to do to be in the draw to win this is leave a comment on this post. This will run for 2 weeks from today, and I'll pick the winner on Friday 30th June.

I'm not a sock knitter (yet) but I know many people are so I hope this will be a fun prize :-)

EDIT - for those who have asked my birthday is 2nd July :-)

I hope you enjoy your birthday. Another year on this planet can't be so bad.

Beautiful yarn. It deserves to go to a home where it won't be frogged at least FOUR TIMES.......

Have a great weekend everyone!

Oh my goodness, I dreamt of your Irish Hiking scarf last night. I was having trouble trying to photograph it. Even my sleep is being taken over.

(My two comments are coincidental - nothing to do with your yarn.....)

You are so generous and that is such a good idea - I bet you will get loads of comments. I've never knitted socks (wouldn't even know where to start) so I'm not entering I just stopped by to see what you were up to! Have a great birthday.

Ah, giveaways are always great :) What a gorgeous yarn this is, such great colors!
But: No birthday wishes from me yet, here in Austria we have this tradition thinking that it brings bad luck sharing birthday wishes before the actual day - but mind you, I already have your birthdate in my calendar now! :)

Happy Birthday for 2nd July!
I have just finished my first ever pair of socks and am now looking for inspiration for the second pair, this has done it! The colours are beautful they remind me of a summer garden. Knitting with a cashmere sounds wonderful, the socks will be so soft, light and warm. I am now going to have a look at the 'Posh Yarns' website as you have given me yarn for thought!

Came here to have a nosey at your Irish Hiking scarf - which is lovely and I now need to knit one! Happy Birthday for 2 July!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!for July 2nd!!:0)
What are you doing for your b'day? Anything special planned??

What beautiful yarn...it sort of reminds me of Neopolitan ice cream again, as did your Latifa scarf ..... Or maybe it looks like a Cosmopolitan cocktail thus earning it's glamourous name?....never having had one i wouldn't know..but i bet someone out there does :0)

Is it a dream to knit with?

Cor i'd even flash my ankles in socks made from that yummy stuff! Why...i'd even hoist me kecks up higher to get them in full view!!!!LOL

Do you think you'll have another go at Pirate?Maybe in the winter when we're not all so hot and bothered?

Anyway Best Wishes for a lovely birthday :0)
