greetings from planet barf. the stinky place between bed and bathroom where strange stuff just keeps coming up. hence no knitting here lately. remember to wash your hands, people.
now that the gross part is done.
this blog was rather immaculately conceived exactly one year ago. a lot of completely irrelevant and boring stuff has been said. stuff that only vaguely relates to knitting. and stuff that does relate to knitting but in a fashion that i hardly imagined would interest anyone. but apparently i have some surprisingly magnetic tractor beam-like qualities which forces some of you oddballs to keep coming back. for which i both apologize and skip around triumphantly.
so to celebrate your loyalty and persistence as well as my own, i’m throwing a sequel to my christmas giveaway!
the grand prize is…
this once-in-a-lifetime baby from the finnish fibre artist ilu, who dyes her unique colorways in tiny batches at her studio in pukkila. they’re virtually impossible to get both outside finland and in, as the batches usually sell out before you even realize the shop’s been updated. you may begin gasping in awe now.
the yarn is a fingering weight 100% merino, running a full 400 meters per 100 gram hank, in a gorgeous shade called “matkustaa” that mixes lovely fresh mints and greens with subtle greys. a perfect reminder that spring is coming – and perfect for any one-skein project you might have.
do i even need to remind you that you probably won’t find this yarn, in this colorway, anywhere, ever?
all you have to do is leave a comment, preferably one that makes some sense, by 11am (CET) tuesday, march 20. the winner will be randomly selected and notified the next day. that’s it!
good luck and may indeed the luckiest bastard win!
oh, and check out the new brooklyn tweed collection. i already got me the winter seasons kit. because i need to finally fondle the loft yarn in person. despite the $13 shipping charge. jared and his f***ing flagship stores.
