Dream in Color Giveaway

Share Button

The time has come again for a juicy new giveaway from Dream in Color yarns. And just in time! This holiday I see crafters working their little fingers to nubs. What better way to look forward to post-holiday selfish knitting than with a special handdyed skein of  your very own?

This month Dream in Color is tempting us with a lovely fingering weight merino cashmere blend in a green/purple fusion.  This is an exclusive colorway of Smooshy with Cashmere. *Swoon*. Check it out!

Of course, the giveaway includes a free pattern to go with it! The pattern for this great yarn is a men’s scarf called Opa! But this would be great for anyone…including yourself!

Want a chance to win? Let us know what selfish knitting you are planning for January by commenting below by Sunday, December 4th. Please leave your contact info (Ravelry name is fine) and we’ll contact 10 lucky winners!

Happy Knitting and Good luck!!

    Planning on working on my afghan I bought yarn for during Webs annual yarn sale, a wonderful warm orange colored Auracania Azapa. The afghan is by Ann Budd in her “Green Knitting” book , it is called blue cloud, I guess mine will be orange cloud : ) Thanks for the chance to win. Tina

    I was lucky and got through most of my Christmas knitting before November hit, but now I am working on a hat for my Grandpa in Rowan Pure Wool DK.  After Christmas, I plan on starting either a Summer Flies shawl in Malabrigo Sock, Archangel colorway, or an Arisaig in Rowan 4ply.  Or maybe a Shalom cardigan in Rowan Cocoon, Kiwi colorway . . .

    Socks.  And a lace scarf. And another sweater.  At least that’s what I’m dreaming about.  Reality??? Well we won’t go there yet.

  • Mujercita

    I have more selfish knitting than I probably will actually have time for planned!  There are a couple of sweaters that I want to make, as well as a scarf and hat set.

    The biggest selfish project I have, though, doesn’t actually involve me knitting, although it is related.  I am going to be setting up a craft room for myself!

  • Athena

    I would like some more socks and fingerless gloves for myself as well as another winter hat

    I am planning on finishing the squares for an afghan that I started in a Square of the Month class over a year ago and have put off for other knitting.

    I saw the beekeepers quilt on Ravelry and have decided that I will start making the hexipuffs along with a group of students from the high school where I teach.  We will raffle off the finished product and the money raised will go to the Relay For Life Team to raise money for the fight against cancer.

  • Jennifer Rostal

    I’d like to make a nice lacy scarf for myself!

  • Kelli

    My selfish January knitting to be started on Christmas Day is a sweater with lots of fantastic cables that can’t be knit in public. Maybe a Starmore or a personal design.

  • Donginzu

    I am going to start a lace shawl for myself.  Just finished one for my mum, literally a few hours before they got on the plane to go back to the UK, and I love how it came out so I’m going to knit one for myself too!  My Ravelry name is DonGinzu. 

  • deidre corbet

    I am knitting a sweater and going to learn to knit socks because commercial socks do not fit me! Thanks for the chance

  • Martha from Ohio

    Starting a cardigan for myself and probably finishing Christmas gifts that didn’t get completed in time

  • Barb F

    I am going to make a sweater with cables in January. Just finished a hat for my granddaughter.

  • Barbara Berman

    My selfish knitting wish is to knit a lacy cardigan that I saw on Ravelry.  I am almost finished knitting a few scarves for my son’s teachers.  Then I need to knit some soft baby clothes for my two pregnant nieces.  Happy Knitter!

    I have two skeins of Kauni that I ordered from WEBS months ago!  I am dreaming of colorwork in a rainbow!

  • Nyx

    I am thinking it’s time to learn socks because I have lots of cushy warm sock yarn in pretty pretty colors and I’m running low on comfortable socks.

    Or there’s all the sock-weight patterns for lace shawls and I could make a couple yummy soft small shawls for keeping my head & neck warm in the wind that Seattle gets in the late winter.

  • Judy Gilbert

    Thanks for the opportunity to win such a beautiful skein of yarn and pattern!

    Once I’m done with all my Christmas gifts (it might be January!), I hope to work on some thread projects (doilies) which I love working on and to finish a short-sleeved sweater for myself that I started a couple years ago.

  • sampoulter

    I realllllly want to get back to my Master Knitter program — which means knitting bunches of swatches and evaluating them. And a pair of felted slippers for myself. But first I need to figure out just how much my perfect pair shrunk so I can alter the pattern accordingly!

  • Dsousa

    I hope to finish spinning the yarn for and knitting myself a nice warm sweater for the winter.

  • Lucy
