August Giveaway

Its the first of the month again, so you know what that means!

August 09

More hand dyed yarn is up for grabs and this months yarn has been naturally dyed... with stinging nettles! This particular skein was used to exhaust the stinging nettle dye bath and it came up in this very subtle pale yellow and brown combo, reminds me of a milky caramel colour. The much brighter yellow will be up for grabs in a future giveaway :D

August 09

Anyhoo, as usual, there is approximately 72 meters of this 50% wool, 50% nylon blend yarn and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to comment on this post. Be sure to comment before Friday 14th August, and as usual, please only comment once! I'll use the random number generator on Random.org to determine the winner on the 15th.

What could you do with this yarn? Well, you could make a hat or a scarfette, a purse, a brooch or use it within another project. There is so much you can do with one skein! Last months winner, Kelly made this cute kids gnome hat with hers. What would you make?

I think this is a beautiful color. I'm very new to working with yarn, so I'm not sure what I'd do with it yet. Maybe I'll win and get inspired. :) Thanks for the chance!
