Never Not Knitting Green Yarn Giveaway!


I cannot quite convey how I excited I am to introduce this yarn to you...


This is Meringue Merino by Wool Candy in an extra special limited edition colorway!

Isn't that sooo cool?

I am so in love with this color! It's the most lovely blend of my favorite green tones.
I've started a pair of socks with it, I'll be sharing pictures very soon!


This yarn is exclusively available here through The Fiber Fix online yarn shop.
I had the pleasure of signing and writing a little message on each skein. What fun! :)


Enter to win a skein of "Never Not Knitting Green" provided by
The Fiber Fix by leaving a comment (with contact information) under this post.
Only one comment per person please.

Additionally I will also be giving away a copy of my
Amelie sock and Molly hat pattern to the winner.

Both patterns would be perfect for this yarn!

The winner will be announced on April 15th, 2010, so please check back to see if you've won!


Gain an additional drawing entry by posting this phrase on Twitter.com

" I entered to win a gorgeous skein of the "Never Not Knitting Green" yarn on nevernotknitting.com! @nevernotknittin "
