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 already have a cardigan (cosima) on the needles, and another planned for vacation. Because I appreciate all the work that goes into my projects. :o)

  • CarolynEll

    Definitely some bright colorful socks!

  • Cyntha Landers

    I love DIC.  I’m planning a new scarf for myself in DIC Starry or maybe this one if I win!!!

  • Cindy

    I love this yarn! I am looking forward to making myself a pair of mitts to wear at work – but I have been planning on doing this for two years now!

  • Kelly H.

    Sadly (though happily) my SiL is having a baby late March and I’ve a last minute request for a cardigan (non-knitters who do *not* understand time requirements) cardigan for my FiL for Christmas (dying of cancer, can’t turn that down, reality or not) means I’ve got nothing planned for myself.  I’ve had my eye (and drooling mouth) on a Leif Slipover, Deep In The Forest Mittens or Old Penny Cardigan in Apple Green Williamstown (no, you can’t have too many cardigans!!), and I’ve UFO’s that would be nice to finish (HA!), but who knows what’ll come up next!  I’m trying to pretend Christmas isn’t happening in 3 weeks.

    After giving my sewing/knitting room a thorough cleaning I am going to delve into some lace knitting that I have been wanting to do. This yarn would be perfect for that I think.

  • Kate/Massachusetts

    I think this beautiful, lovely yarn should become some mittens and a hat for me :) I’m smidgentigre on ravelry.

  • tami h.

    Oh i adore all dream in color yarns! My after christmas knitting list will begin by making myself my very first project with lace. Not sure what exact pattern I will use, but I want it to be a shawl pattern using a lace weight or even better a sock yarn just like tis one!!! Ravelry: sweetside

  • Kgreaney1

    I always have a pair of brainless socks for me on the go, but I’ve decided I’d like a nice winter hat and I’ve kinda taken to Tourbillon by Kris Carlson in the latest issue of Twist Collective.  I think that will be my Jan knit (after the xmas presents, the baby blanket for the Jan. baby, the mittens, hats and socks for my rapidly growing 4 mth old nephew etc etc)….

    In January I am finally going to start the Aurora Shawl Collar sweater that I bought in September.  I keep looking at the beautiful teal yarn and then putting it down.  Too many requests for fingerless gloves this Christmas!  Happy Holidays everyone!!!

  • dust-bunny

    My January selfish knitting is planned to be a Horus shawl with some yarn I bought at Stitches East.  I joined the KAL (which is now over) and was never able to get to it because of gift weaving I’m spending all my time doing.  January, when all is calm will be time for my project!
    Thank you for this opportunity to win such gorgeous yarn!  Love, love, love Dream in Color anything!

    I’m going to make the Star Pullover from Bijou Basin Lhasa Wilderness yarn. It’s yak and bamboo, and is really  luxurious.

  • JL

    need new cardigan

  • Nancy Lea

    I plan to make up another sweater with my Lopi discontinued-colours stash and do a Fair Isle vest out of the leftovers.  It’s going to be unusually-cold around here for a good spell, if this winter is anything like the last two.  The worst is always January and February. We have already had snow-flurries, and, for Alabama, that’s downright weird.  SOOOO, sweaters are looking pretty good!  I just finished dashing out a cute, warm hat…took me just a couple of hours with the Lopi Bulky!

  • Nancy Lea

    of course, sox are always in work.  That’s the knitting I can carry around with me.
