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!

    I just finished the Context scarf in a different Dream in Color yarn – it would look beautiful in this one too! Otherwise I’d have a lot of fun searching out a cute shawlette to make with this over on Ravelry. :)

    I just love those colours and know this yarn would make a great little scarf for my mom!

  • jnishjen

    I love my Ishbel scarf made with Dream in Color Wicked Purple, though it drove me crazy because it was my first lace project – I nicknamed it the Penelope scarf because I kept having to tink rows even with a lifeline. The result was worth it, though! I’d love to work with Dream in Color again, and the colors would be perfect for a lightweight spring version of the Ishbel!

    It would make a pretty scarf!

    I have never knit with DiC, but I have seen others work done in it. It looks beautiful. Would not mind at all getting my hands on a skein to try out.

  • GS

    What a treat it would be to win this yarn! So pretty… DIC is one of my favorite yarns! ! The Trinity pattern is lovely, I could definitely see myself knitting and wearing that.

    I created a cowl/collar out of this delicious orange sherbet fluff yarn that took just under a skein. It’d be gorgeous in this spring yarn!
