Dream in Color Spring Giveaway!

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!

    Always looking for single skeins to incorporate in weaving projects. This yarn is beautiful.

  • Ruth Simone

    Whenever I see these lovely multi yarns I think of scarves made the long way with
    self-made fringes at the beginning of each row – or using a pattern with yo eyelets.
    So many to choose from!! Lovely colors.

  • Nantort

    This is a great design!

    I think I would crochet a sweet infinity scarf – it would go with most anything!

  • Turmaline7

    My favorite colors year around. I think a shawl would be very happy making to wear and to see. Warmth is an added bonus.

  • Carol Harrnacker

    I have 4 teenage granddaughters that are scarf crazy. How popular would all that yarn make me?

  • Connie

    The yarn is just beautiful – totally love those colors – I’m really hoping to win!!!

    Oh, maybe something for a wee one? Such a pretty yarn. I’ll find SOMETHING to make with it!

    Absolutely amazing. And I will take all the one-skein projects I can find! I love the cunning French loop!!

  • Betty J

    Love the yarn. The colors are fantastic! Would be delighted to add it to my collection. That sounds much more sophisticated than stash.

  • sandi

    so beautiful, so many possibilities

  • Adrienne G.

    Don’t know what I’d make but love the colors!

  • Amanda Yancey

    I have a friend who is graduating from a two-year program at a women’s shelter. I would make her a lovely shawl with this yarn. She would look as gorgeous on the outside as she is on the inside. The coloring of this yarn would compliment her beautifully. Thanks for the opportunity to participate in the drawing.

  • Amanda Dye

    Beautiful! I would love to crochet (or knit) with that yarn!

  • Sally Greenberg

    Beautiful colors. I would knit a light spring shawl (although the pictured scarf is beautiful too.

  • http://www.facebook.com/gayle.hay.1 Gayle Hay

    Beautiful yarn, would make a lovely cowl or lacy shawlette

  • Zoe Valette

    A “biased” faggoting stitch scarf – airy enough for spring, but squashy and insulating enough for any late cold snaps!

  • Katztoo

    I do not have a favorite one skein pattern, but the Trinity Scarf is very pretty! Yes, I think I would knit the Trinity Scarf or maybe something with no texture, so I can see the beautiful colors of the yarn. :)

  • http://www.facebook.com/meg.weglarz Meg Graham Weglarz

    I find that nearly any single skein of beautiful yarn can be used to make a lovely Holden Shawlette and I know just the tweaks to make the absolute best of this delightful colorway!

  • Shana601

    I have a lot of unique knitting and crocheting patterns, but just short of yarn! Definitely would love to get more lovely yarn to start more projects! Definitely will post my finished projects after using them!

  • Velda

    Beautiful yarn! I would love to win this and knit just about anything with it.

  • KarenR

    What lovely colors in this gorgeous yarn. I am dreaming of my project if I might be a winner!!!

    Those colors remind me of a Moroccan souk (market) with its plethora of colors of the many things for sale: spices, fruits, fabrics, straw baskets. Hmmm… what would this skein become? I’d have to sit quietly with it in my hands, feeling the softness of its fiber blends and smelling it, too. I’d close my eyes and let the pattern reveal itself. Yummy!

  • Becky in MD

    Absolutely beautiful scarf!! Very stunning! Love the Dream in Color yarns. I knitted a sweater for my granddaughter in 8 colors and its just beautiful.

  • Judy

    I would love to try this yarn. Perhaps some nice mitts.

  • http://www.facebook.com/christine.a.morris.1 Christine A Morris

    Love the colors. I would make my favorite cowl patterns trying a new colorway for each pattern.

  • Crazy for wool

    I love one skin wonders. I love knitting and admit enjoying the finer things in life.. This yarn looks fabulous and I cannot imagine what it feels like. Will have to check it out. I love accessories and a funky scarf and some colourful gloves. Funky leggings are a most. Who needs to be boring?

  • zoemom

    Whoa Nellie scarf

  • Marianne

    I would make a lovely soft set of hand warmers. Beautiful colors!

  • goblue87

    I’ve been teaching myself some basic lace techniques, so I’ve been scouring ravelry and using patterns I’ve found for lace cowls/infinity scarves that will use a single skein. This pattern looks like it would be a great variation on that theme, or at least a break from all the lace!

  • LA

    I love Jessica Correa’s Ichigo Tam pattern. It really shows off all those amazing colors!

  • grogana

    I’ve just started making shawls and they are perfect for showing off color gradations in hand painted yarns! Hitchhiker done and Thorn on the needles. I would love to go pattern hunting for a skein of this beautiful Dream in Color!

  • roberta

    I think I’d try the Trinity pattern

  • Cindy

    What a beautiful skein of yarn! I would probably make a shawlette, but it’s always fun searching for a pattern. Thanks!

  • Amanda White

    I would love to win a skein of this beautiful yarn…. I have a great “One Skein” book that has some great patterns that would work with this beautiful yarn!!!

  • http://www.facebook.com/crystal.hofegartner.7 Crystal Hofegartner

    Great pattern and I love Dream in Color!

  • Gretchen Warwick

    I’m thinking a pair of mitts would be perfect!

  • http://www.facebook.com/eileen.dalton.7 Eileen Dalton

    I have a couple of drop stitch scarf designs to show off the beautiful color changes in skeins like these. Gorgeous choice of colors for spring.

  • http://www.facebook.com/debbie.tucker.3572 Debbie Tucker

    I love the pattern for the Trinity Scarf. I am always looking for one skein projects. I don’t know what my favorite is. I just love working on quick projects.

  • enidb

    A cute hat or pair of fingerless gloves are easy to squeeze out of one skein of sport weight yarn. Of course a beautiful scarf is always an option.

  • GynnaB

    Oh what a beautiful color and that scarf is amazing! I would definitely make one!

  • FAM

    Would love to win……….

  • Betsy

    I don’t have a particular pattern in mind…I would use this for some type of scarf or shawl. I have a very long scarf that was woven with many of these colors in it. Just love finding new yarns and things to do! Would love to win!!!!
