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!!

    I won some Malabrigo Rios in a local yarn crawl that I will make a cowl out of once the Christmas knitting is finished! 

  • stardust79

    I’m thinking a drapey cowl would be perfect.

  • Nancy D.

    I’m going to relax and sit in front of the fire, knit myself an Afghan in Sea Blue yarn, in a Shell pattern! I’ll stay warm and dream of the wonderful “beach days” ahead!

    I am planning to make a Lintilla scarf in January.

    I have a couple of hanks of Malabrigo Rasta…I liked the cowl so much I wanted it in different colors :) –  (ravid: knitkai)

    I need some mitts. I’ve got a few gifts yet to knit, but I really want some pretty mitts in a gorgeous yarn. And if course I need them now. Julie. Whitecatstudio on Ravelry.

    That yarn and pattern are beautiful!  For January, my selfish knitting is a cabled turtleneck called Bliss and the Jared Flood Hemlock Ring blanket–both out of Cascade wool from WEBS!

  • Carol Perecman

    I need some new cardigans, and as soon as I am finished with all the grandchild knitting, I am casting on for the Wildflower Cardigan!

    I’m planning on starting an Elizabeth Zimmerman 100th birthday lace shawl! I’ve never done lace before… (^_^)!

  • Lisa from western mass

    Oooh … lovely yarn! My January selfish knitting will be a cashmere-blend cowl, I think. So many patterns, so little time….

  • Redskyis

    Through a combination of upcoming projects and extensive Christmas shopping (no time AND no money…), I don’t have any selfish knitting planned for January; I’ll be knitting a throw for two good friends of mine (hopefully in time for Christmas), and a long vest for my mother sometime between now and February, but nothing planned for myself. I’ve been considering a cowl, mostly because it’s something I would use (the walk between the train and work is long and cold) and because it’s something I’ve never made, so it would be a new experience.

    (Also, I would like to be entered in the Dream in Color giveaway, please!)

  • Jan

    I plan on knitting a cardigan from the knit Noro book. Every year I try to knit something for each member of my family to wear in our Christmas picture. Hopefully 2012 can be the year when we all get new sweaters!

  • http://www.facebook.com/ellen.rule Ellen Rule

    I plan to make some really complicated sock patterns, ones that I’ve been putting off because it’s too crazy lately to concentrate on much beyond plain knitting. For me.

  • Jane

    I have been blessed with a granddaughter last May and twin grandsons ten days ago. I have been knitting many items for these precious babies. I am knitting away on Christmas gifts. I just told some friends this morning that I can’t wait until January when I can select a knitting project for myself with no deadline to get it done. I have not yet picked the project. I am dreaming about it … that scarf pattern looks like a possibility!

  • Robin

    My selfish knitting will be a sweater for myself, with cable shaping, out of my handspun yarn. I have just rediscovered knitting (after 20 years) this past October and have been knitting socks like crazy for Christmas gifts.. something I never knitted before. I *love* it. My Ravelry name is RobinMurphy

  • Winterwrens

    My project for myself that I’ve been thinking of is actually a new scarf… just hadn’t decided on a pattern yet!  This one looks lovely!

    a lace shawl

  • Janet Chutro

    Rowan #48 – Meander vest. The way it’s put together looks so clever to me.

  • Marjact

    Decided my husband has more sweaters than me, so I found two pretty patterns I’m going to try.

  • http://www.penguingirl.com penny

    I plan to take some time for myself and knit the sweater I’ve been dreaming of and designing in my head. nothing earth shattering, just a simple top-down set in sleeve, but i’m looking forward to creating a knit i’ll turn to for comfort and warmth. and it will stay with me and not be gifted off to someone else. 

  • GypsyScarfWoman

    I have a sweater that’s barely started but will have to sit until gift knitting is done, and a pair of socks that I’ve been daydreaming about.  Of course, then I panic about how close the holidays are!

  • laceandcable

    I think that I’ll knit myself some lace.  I don’t wear what I have, but I do love to knit it… And maybe someday I’ll figure out how to wear a lace shawl and not look dumb…

  • Deb

    I am going to (finally!) knit myself a sweater! I keep putting it off for smaller projects, but I have the yarn picked out as well as the pattern (weeellll….almost picked out – it’s at least narrowed down to a few!). My ravelry name is SweetgrassBay.

  • Ljmalleypm

    I think that I am going to do a lace shawl pattern with beads. Something that needs concentration. Once the party season is over, it’s time to exercise the two brain cells I have left!

  • Tammi

    Looks like a great blend for fingerless gloves, or a snuggly cowl, yum!!!

    I’ll be participating in a shawl KAL in January and the end result will be for me; the yarn was dyed by a friend especially for me.

    I’m planning on working a version of an Alice Starmore sweater in a fitted v-neck with dk yarn…we’ll see if I manage :)

  • Haygayle

    It’s hard to choose, cowls in cashmere, alpaca shawls, where do I begin?

  • Irene Poston

    I intersperse “selfish” knitting in along with gift knitting. I’ll make something for my friend/husband/mom/anyone else, then I’ll make something for me.  This “one-for-me-one-for-you” approach helps me stay motivated.  Otherwise I’ll feel sorry for myself all the time and not enjoy knitting one bit!

  • shellbelle

    I need some new winter woolies, tons of socks I want to knit, and my first lace shawl, hmmm…. what else?

  • Meghann

    I would like to do the mohair cowlneck pattern from the Vogue Knitting A-Z latest issue! It looks simple but fun. Ravelry ID: Megfoot

  • Kmsears

    2 shawls- Citron and Thin Ice

  • Diane

    My selfish knitting in January is the Vodka Gimlet sweater over on Ravelry….but I could move it to February to work with DIC…my favorite yarn!

  • Anonymous

    Something in cashmere. Or yak. Warm, soft, and scrumptious.

  • MamaBearKnits on Rav

    Where do I begin?  Blumchen by Anne Hanson I hope!

  • Audribklyn

    If I can finish this ridiculous shrug thing for my daughter called the Minx Convertible Hooded Shrug I will be ready to work on a simple sweater for me.  Or maybe yet another lace shawl (I’m obsessed).
