As promised here be my contest! I am starting it as soon as i post this and it will run to 8pm (BST) on the 2nd of August which is a year since i learned to knit!
Tis a fairly simple premise, I have just finished spinning my very first handspun on my wheel and what you have to do it guess the length!
Here is the yarn in question:
Close ups are a little blurry I'm afraid,
The vital statistics:
Fibre: Merino (i think)
Weight: 45g or 1 5/8oz
WPI: 13 (roughly its not the evenest)
Thickness (?) : somewhere in the DK/ very light worsted
What ya need to do is email me (bumblefee (at) gmail (dot) com with the correct symbols) and tell me your name, your blog if you have one (cos i am nosy) and your guesstimate in either yards or metres I'm not fussy. On the evening of the 2nd i will announce the winner ie whoever guesses closest to the correct length and contact them for further info!
So what can ya win??
1 skein of bright dyes handdyed Sock yarn in a greeny blue colour way!
And for the 2 closest runners up:
Very cute stitch markers!
Also if anyone has any ideas what i can knit with it, any suggestions welcome!
So go forth and let battle commence!!
**Edit: I'm willing to post anywhere so dont let geography put ya off!**
