Competition time!

Firstly a lesson, never buy cheap digital camera's to photograph your yarn with. My new camera is great for holiday snaps but not so good for yarn closeups. So I must appologise for the dissapointing pictures of my lovely handspun yarn which is the focus of the competition this week.

So here goes: this is 94 grams of my own handspun self striping rather lively wendsleydale singles yarn, which is fabulous for socks, and knits up about 7 - 8 stitches per inch on 2.75mm needles.  The colours in real life are actually much brighter than in the photo. When knit up it gives a lovely soft fuzzy glow.


How do you enter the competition?

Leave a comment telling me what your favourite sock yarn is and why. I will draw a comment number from this post randomly and contact the winner by email and I am happy to send this to anywhere in the world. I am currently knitting socks in this yarn so if I am un able to quite make a pair of socks from two skeins, I will send three skeins of it!
