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!

    As others have noted, searching for a perfect one-skein pattern for this lovely yarn would be a wonderful task. Trinity looks like a great pattern to try as well.

    With the beautiful variegation that the yarn has, an entrelac scarf or cowl (done with a simple stockinette stitch) shows off the yarn without a lot of fuss.

  • Sarah

    I would hold the skein and pet it and admire it for a good long time, then repeat that for a while and finally make a skinny scarf or a hat.

  • Mayzie13

    I love one skein projects! They allow me to try out new yarns and patterns/stitches.
    I haven’t use any “Dream In Color” before and the colorways are beautiful. It would be awesome to win.Thanks for offering this giveaway.

  • Chris

    This would make a lovely Easter accessory! Hope I’m one of the lucky 10. <3

  • PurrOne

    One skein projects are great when travelling. I always get comments when I’m knitting in public, and this yarn is sure to attract attention.

    I would make the Stockholm Scarf (pattern on Ravelry). I’m working on my second and this is a perfect project for any size skein. These colours in the Stockholm Scarf would be just right for any Spring outfit!

    I would love to try a skein of this yarn.

  • Kristina Ruybalid

    Beautiful, hope I win.

  • AthenaHandKnits

    Beautiful!

    Wow! What pretty colors! If I didn’t use perfectly posh to make the Trinity Scarf, I would probably make one of the scarves from a knitting magazine I’m subscribed to. Maybe an openworked scarf?

  • http://www.facebook.com/janet.foley.14 Janet Foley

    Love this yarn! Enchanted by the Trinity Scarf which would be fun to whip up for the winter/spring transition but then I fell in love with so many other patterns on the Dream in Color website – so many patterns and so little time.

  • M Hayes

    Lovely yarn.

  • Lynn

    Beautiful yarn and scarf. Would love a chance! Thanks.

  • Deborah Daigle

    those are some lovely colors. And one skein projects are perfect for that “splurge” yarn that jsut happens to follow you home.

  • Andi Tippie

    Oooh, this would be my perfect birthday present! :) I have no clue what I’d do… Maybe another pair of fingerless mittens? I love me some of those!

  • Gloria Williams

    This would be an awesome yarn to work into a freeform crochet shawl or scarf! Loveable! Or a one skein crocheted scarf on the sedge stitch would really show off this beautiful yarn!

  • japwood

    Beautiful yarn. I would make something for my mom, maybe a scarf? She lives in area with lots of snow!!

    I’ve been making moebius cowls like crazy! I take the yarn’s stitch gauge for an inch, multiply it by the circumference I want and add 20% more stitches (the twist eats up some of the circumference). Cast on using Cat Bordhi’s magical moebius caston, and knit until you run out of yarn or like the size. My favorite so far is moss stitch with an i-cord castoff.

    I would make a lovely scarf to remind me of my new marriage (March 1)! I also love Ravelry and all the endless temptations to knit and crochet!

  • Kjm

    So pretty.

  • jeneequa

    So often, yarn is so beautiful, I have to get just one skein so I can look and touch and admire it! And you can always make a scarf with one skein…. who doesn’t love another scarf! ;)

    such pretty yarn!

  • Guest

    Thanks for the nice giveaway!

    I’d knit a “wingspan” shawl / scarf if I win this beautiful yarn!

  • http://www.facebook.com/Genlisea Becca Elwood

    Love you guys :) we don’t have any yarn stores near where I live, I can get all my yarn needs filled by WEBS :) (with the exception of the yarn fondling lol)

  • Dariasmom

    Love Dream in Color!

  • christina

    I follow patterns in One Skein Wonder books and have enjoyed working my way through them. Lovely yarn!!

  • Tracey

    The trinity scarf makes a perfect match for the yarn!

  • http://www.facebook.com/bonnie.cocuzza Bonnie Strickland Cocuzza

    Oh my goodness this gorgeous yarn!

  • Cathy B

    I’ve never used this yarn but the colors look beautiful and very Springy.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Ross.Carolyn Carolyn Ross

    I love to try out new yarns and would love to win a Dream In Color fiber!

  • http://www.facebook.com/mieka.coppinger Mieka Coppinger

    that would make a lovely bag or shawlette

  • D. Bradbury

    I love berets! Those beautiful colours would make you feel like you have a spring flower in your hair.

  • Sarah from Ctown

    I’d probably have to buy another skein in the same dye lot and make it up into one of the umpteen shawls I have favorited right now. Thanks for the chance!

  • JBP

    This might be a fun pattern for that colorway: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/marble-arch-mitts

  • Ardosa Carboni

    I have a few nice ‘one skein’ patterns – hat, bags, scarfs… that i love. I also have done fingerless gloves depending on the length of the skein. The colors are so pretty and with that weight i’d definitely make a cowl – so it’s not too warm not too cool and perfect for a cool spring morning.

  • Jami

    Love the colorway and the pattern. If I won, I’d make both so I could wear it in time for Fall. Stunning! Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Lollie

    I would love to try the Perfectly Posh Pattern with this yarn!

  • http://twitter.com/subknit Juliet Subknit

    I’m feeling the bug to make fingerless mitts again . . . this yarn would feel so nice against my arms this spring!

  • Hayley

    Thinking of Summer travels I have been wanting to knit a small travel pillow, simple but very cozy! This would be beautiful!

  • SherryG.

    Oh, I do have a beautiful 1 skein scarf pattern that this would work for. I hope I win…..

  • http://www.facebook.com/danny.pucci.17 Danny Pucci

    Such pretty yarn! I would love to knit it up.

  • Terri Moore

    Pink and purples are favorite colors. I would love some dish cloths to make with this gorgeous yarn and have something pretty to look at as I clean in the kitchen!

  • Lucy H

    What beautiful yarn! I have several patterns in mind….picking just one will be such sweet torture…

  • Cheryl Juhl

    I absolutely love the color and I would be thrilled to win the yarn and pattern
