Ok, I have never done this before, but I really thought having a contest on my knitting blog would be fun. I know there are some of us that have a yarn habit, and some of us have a "problem" with "yarn porn" whatever that is. Ok, I have been known to surf the net looking at fibers, and drooling over them, however, I am on a yarn freeze at the moment. I am not buying anymore yarn until I put a sizable dent in my "stash".
Part of my yarn collection I inherited from my grandmother. She has sent me all of her yarn, and unfinished projects. I have several skeins of very vintage yarn. Some of this yarn is the yarn I am featuring for this contest. I will give you as much information about the yarn as I can. Then email (firstname.lastname@example.org) me your suggestions for the yarn. Please put contest name in subject so I don't delete your email. The winner will either win the yarn (I have 12 of these little buggers, so I can offer up to that much for the winning project), or the object made from the yarn (only if you are a non yarn person). So if you know, please indicate how much yarn would be needed for the project. I would like all entries by May 1, I will try to have the winner announced by the following Monday at the latest.
Ok, here goes:
Ok, here is what I know about the yarn. It is in 1 oz. skeins, each skein says it is aprox. 60 yards. It is virgin wool, it is a boucle, and it is an off white color. The label states anti stretch, shrink resistant, washable color. It is Spinnerin yarn, no longer for sale or production as far as I know.
I do not know if it will hold a dye if you try to dye it, I do not know the Yarn weight type. This is why I pictured it next to a strand of Cascade 220 worsted to show the size comparison.
