Valentine giveaway

This is the kind of gift I'd like to receive on Valentine's Day. Yarn does indeed last a lot longer than flowers.

Up for grabs is a 100g skein of Hipknits aran silk. The shade is one I have named "Love Hearts", and is the last skein from the custom-dyed batch that I used for my recent Clapotis.



To enter for the draw, please leave a comment on this post. Closing date and time is midnight UK time on Friday 16th February.

I will endeavour to announce the winner on Saturday 17th. If you don't have an email contact on your Blogger profile, I will leave a comment on your blog as well as posting here. If you have neither, please do check back here next weekend and contact me! If for any reason the winner can't be contacted within 7 days of the draw I'll pick another name.

Good luck!

That's a beautiful yarn. About fairisle, it may be easier to learn with a small project in the round because then you don't have to purl with 2 strands.

I love the hat, would 110grams of Sophia be just too much or would it make a perfect hat for you?

I agree about the Book Depository, wholeheartedly.

I love the Hipknits colour BTW. :)

Happy Valentine's Day to everyone! And what a gorgeous and appropriately named yarn (I was lucky enough to get yarn not flowers - called "Kiss Me", how cool?!)
