It's giveaway time!

Hello lovely crafters!  I'm having a major clear out here and I'm about to take a car load of stuff to the charity shop It really does feel great to de-clutter!

It's hard to part with yarn but I've got to give in.  I picked up this beautiful bright mohair with good intentions but I've yet to make anything with it, and being honest I know I'm probably never going to.

So there's no point in it being stuck in my yarn stash is there!  I'm certain one of you could make something absolutely lovely with it, and it's also a way to say thank you because I could probably sell it but I'd like to give it away.

I've got 9 balls, three red, three gold and three green

Mohair yarn
So lets keep it simple, if you'd like some mohair to add to your yarn stash just leave a comment and let me know what you'd like to make with it, that way I get to read some interesting ideas too and wish I'd come up with them!

I'll pick a winner at random and they can have the lot.  Don't forget that if you don't have a blog or someway I can contact you you'll need to leave me an email address.  I'm also happy to post worldwide  Giveaway closes a week today, Saturday 21st at 11.59 pm UK time ;-)

A bit about the mohair, I believe the yellow and red are Hayfield Mohair but the green is Jaeger Mohair silk, although I don't think you'd be able to tell that they're different brands.

  1. Such pretty colours! I was just looking through a crochet book last night and found a pretty waves design for a cushion, it was hooked in mohair and looked so soft and lovely...so that's what I would make with these if I won. I've also done a big charity clear-out this weekend, must be that time of year...thank you for hosting this lovely giveaway! Chrissie x

  2. Oooh, you had me at mohair but kidsilk too, f-a-b-u-l-o-u-s! With the red, I would make a 'Booknits' shawl for the upcoming KAL entitled 'Fragile Heart', which she is organising to alert women to the symptoms of heart attacks. Then with the gold, I would knit a Shetland Lace scarf from the book 'The Magic of Shetland Lace' for a friend's birthday and finally, with the wonderful kidsilk I would knit something glorious just for me (pattern to be decided!).Thanks for hosting this fantastic giveaway, Nicole. Good Luck Everyone. x

  3. Thank you for the chance! I'd make three matching scarves, a teal scarf for myself, a red one for my sister and a yellow scarf for my mom. I have this great pattern that uses very little yarn and makes a very light, airy scarf like a cobweb, and it's also very simple to knit. I think there's also some angora in my stash in very similar colors to make fluffy fringes.

Thank you so much for leaving a comment :-) I know you're probably busy so it means a lot!

I'll try to reply and share the love, especially if you have a blog! (but I can't email if you're a "No Reply" blogger, so don't be sad if you don't hear back) x
