Crikey! It's Giveaway time again.

 I can't believe it's the 1st June!  Where has the time gone? Apart from the fact that we've been away working so much the time just seems to fly by!

So it's time for the Summer Giveaway. On the 21st June we will be drawing a name from the hat and for this season we have chosen Linen Laceweight (16/2) dyed in our own Walnut Husks! The hank size is 50g, more than enough to complete a scarf like mine. 
The colour is quite a lush brown, and beautifully even, the linen has a lovely sheen to it, almost silk like! I adore working with this yarn - particularly for crochet, although it will knit up very well too. (Or if you're into historical textiles it's fabulous for finger braiding, lucetting and tablet weaving!)

We always have
 a good supply of naturally dyed linens on the stall, 8/2, 16/2 and 28/2 are our standard thicknesses, all are available in 25g balls, the laceweight and 8/2 are also available in 50g hanks. (undyed can be purchased in 100g hanks) Take a look at the Event Calendar on the website to see where we will be next! To purchase online take a look at the Knitsisters website.

To be entered into the draw simply "follow" this blog, "like" us on Facebook or join our Group if you're on Ravelry.

Good luck!
