Giveaway Details

Hello dear knitters!  Here’s the post with all the juicy details about the giveaway going on in my Ravelry group, Carol E Herman Designs.  Not a member of Ravelry?  It’s free and easy to join.  It is a terrific resource for fiber enthusiasts.

All of these lovelies were purchased last weekend at the Rose City Yarn Crawl. It was so much fun shopping for locally made fiber products. The Pacific Northwest truly has a strong creative community, and it is a joy to share a little bit of that with you.
Giveaway Grand Prize

My only goal while shopping the Yarn Crawl was to find skeins of yarn that caught my eye…oh, and I was looking for yarn in a PDX Carpet colorway.  The first store I went to was Twisted, and right away I found it.  Score!!

The Details.

1. Knitted Wit Victory Fingering.

I love this yarn!   It’s the yarn I used (in Golden Delicious) for my Metolius River Mitts.  It is amazingly sproingy, works up wonderfully, and comes in terrific colorways. I love how this colorway picks up the colors in the original PDX Carpet.

100% Superwash Merino, 4 ounces, 380 yards, in PDX Carpet.  Purchased at Twisted.Knitted Wit

2. A PDX Carpet notions bag by Rose City Totes.

This was purchased earlier, but inspired the theme of this giveaway grand prize. Interested in the PDX Carpet iconic design? Read here.PDX Carpet

3. Rosewood cable needles.

Lovely cable needles made in Eugene. Rosewood Cable Needles2

4. Black Trillium Fibres Pebble Sock.

This is lovely yarn.  I bought a similar skein for myself, in a slightly less blue-toned colorway, and I can’t wait to see how it works up.

100% Superwash Merino, 100 grams, 380 yards in a one of a kind colorway.  Purchased at Happy Knits.Black Trillium

5. Bumblebirch Heartwood.

I have heard whispers about this yarn.  I have heard people waxing rhapsodic about it. It is truly, truly, lovely.  The colorways have depth and the bases have a very pleasing hand.

4-ply fingering weight, 100 grams, 463 yds, 75% Superwash Merino/25% nylon in Glacier. Purchased at Close Knit.bumblebirch

6.   One of a Kind Buttons button.

I was fortunate to make it to the One of a Kind trunk show at the Knitting Bee.  Artist Candace Wilson designs these lovely buttons, and I got to chat with her for awhile. Her story is great, as are her buttons!  This is the one I chose:DSCN9678

7. Blissful Knits Sublime Yak.

This yarn is just stunning.  It is shimmery and just plain gorgeous! Truly exquisitely crafted.

Sockweight, 60% Superwash Merino/20% Silk/20% Yak, 3.5 oz., 400 yds in the colorway Abyss.    Purchased at the Knitting Bee .Blissful Knits
