It's up to YOU! GIVE AWAY

Between me and Stella, we have about 18 years experience of spinning. We have spun everything from the BANANA FIBRE to wool Possum to cotton. We thought it would be great to have a challenge. This is where you can help we will both spin the same wool Blue faced Leicester cross HOG which means its a lamb, the first shearing. SOFT BEAUTIFUL and SUPER to knit with. We are going to dye it the same colour, then spin it up. This will be posted each week over 4 weeks or so. You can follow our progress from start to finish. Now the exciting part. Me and Stella live miles from each other so only speak on the phone. So we thought it would be great to see what we come up with, will it be the same or different? EVERY PERSON WHO COMMENTS will be entered to win the YARN SPUN. SO 2 people will receive 100g of the yarn. The more you comment eg each week the more chances to win.

YOUR FIRST CHANCE TO BE ENTERED. What colours should we use? PICK 2 or 3 COLOURS which you think we should use. Its your choice.

Alpaca Farmgirl said...

Pinks and browns. love those together.

Jen said...

Great idea, for me sky blue with aqua blue with a handful of sand thrown in - yes that's right memories of the beach - good luck with this - Jen xx

jennyflower said...

Turquoise blue, orangey yellow and moss green. It seems to be coming up lot for me right now, vert retro!

Sharnemainia knits said...

great idea!, i would love to see oranges ,yellow and even purples in there too!

Madam Salami said...

Ooh what a great idea Zoe! Hmm now, well I think as it's the first wool of the spring I think something very spring like would be lovely. I'd like it to be a mixture of pale pinks, earthy browns and crisp fresh green like a blossom tree.

- My 'word verification' for leaving this comment is 'farting' - how pleasant!!

Monet said...

Blues
Greens
But Waterlilies are ALWAYS good! LMAO (since my first name is Monet)

Helen @ The Beading Lady said...

Omg, this would be sooo divine to win! My Mum has been talking about knitting me a little something...

Baby blues and baby pinks ;-)

amanda said...

i personally love turquoise mixed with orche yellow but not sure how this would knit up.

tollykit said...

How about coral reds and pinks?

Talia said...

I think a really pale green, or a really bright blue! Or maybe a really vibrant spring green!

Greentrixiepixie said...

I think Duck Egg blue and chocolate brown...I also like the sound of Amanda's idea of turquoise and ocher yellow!!!

Digital Misfit said...

Soft gray, buttery yellow and a bit of natural would make for a beautiful spring blend.

Sounds great! I'm going for teal, hot pink and purple. Scrummy! Good luck, can't wait to see how everything comes out! I'm sure they will be different due to a variety of factors!

Kristina Jackson said...

Why not blue/green/red something vibrant and happy :D

Deneen said...

You tweeted, I shall answer:

YOUR fave colorway-fuchsia,brown and coral or perhaps, fuchsia, black and white-how's that for a guess?

Madam Salami said...

For you Zoe I'd say Plum, fuschia and black? x x x x

Tamika said...

I think bright, sunny Yellow and an eastery Lime Green would be nice. Maybe a touch of Hot Pink. ^_^

picperfic said...

commenting after you tweeted....how about pinky plum and navy?

ikkinlala said...

Another vote for blues and greens - it's definitely the right time of year for them.

lynchem said...

periwinkle, purple, pink

tamdoll said...

My vote is for red and orange, summery!

KnitCave said...

bluey pinks with lime and olive - like heathers on the moor under dapples of sunlight.

I can't wait to see what you both decide.

Julia Guthrie said...

Ok, I'll jump in...you tempted me Zoe! LOL

Sage green...love that colour! I so need a nice big wooly scarf in that for next winter! lol
