Dream in Color Spring Giveaway!

Friday, March 1st, 2013
Share Button

It is time once again to have another giveaway with one of Dream in Color’s lovely hand dyed yarns along with a stylish scarf pattern. This month’s yarn is called Perfectly Posh Sport, and the colors are reminiscent of early spring flowers; think crocus, pansy and violet!

The fiber is 70% wool/10% cashmere/10% silk/10% mohair, and has shades of deep, earthy greens, rich purples and pale pinks, with hints of the blue-grey of Spring skies peeking through. With 320 yds per skein you have plenty of yardage for Kay Dahlquist’s Trinity Scarf.

I love finding the perfect little project to use up one skein of gorgeous yarn. This scarf has the most clever little feature, a built in French loop to keep your scarf perfectly in place. As an added bonus your gauge swatch IS the the first section of your edging!

Do you have a perfect one-skein project or a favorite scarf pattern? Do you already have ideas for what you’d do with a skein of Perfectly Posh Sport if you won?

Leave a comment below by 3/07/13, 11:59 pm EST to be entered into the March drawing for one skein of Dream in Color Perfectly Posh Sport along with the Trinity Scarf pattern. There will be 10 lucky winners! Be sure to check the blog on Friday March 8th to see if your name was picked.

Best of Luck!

Congratulations to Sally who wrote:

“So pretty! I’m in a “dark”-ish mood, I’d love to use Grape & Charcoal in the Northfield, where Charcoal would be the rib & picture & then pair them with Arctic in the Huntington. Oh my, want!”

It was so much fun reading all of your color combinations, but now I can’t decide which one I want to do!

Holla Knits Accessories Blog Tour and Giveaway

Holla Knits recently released their Accessories 2012 collection. It is a great group of accessory patterns including one by WEBS-own Emma Welford. Emma is our purchasing coordinator and has recently jumped into designing and we love all of the projects she is creating.

Featured in Holla Knits Accessories 2012, Emma has the Wallpaper Cowl. Valley Yarns Northfield and Valley Yarns Huntington are paired in this great design. The cowl is knit in Northfield and it is lined with Huntington.

We love the bold colorwork pattern paired with the solid lining. It’s a great way to experiment with color and a fantastic way to brighten up a neutral wardrobe. I have a lot of black and gray in my closet and I think I may pick some favorite colors of Northfield and knit this for myself!


Since we’re so excited about Emma’s design and the entire Holla Knits Accessories 2012 collection, we’re giving away the Northfield and Huntington you need to knit the cowl.

Just leave a comment with the color combination of Northfield and Huntington you would use by 9:00AM EDT on Monday, October 29th.
