Tower of Rowan Yarn Giveaway #2

4:18 PM




Edited 2/11:  The contest is closed and the winner has been contacted.  Thank you to all who entered, I'll be having another giveaway soon!

In celebration of Knitionary's 2,000 Facebook likes I'm having another big tower of yarn giveaway.  And naturally it's all Rowan yarn!  Your readership has meant a lot to me and this is a small way for me to give back and say thank you.  One person will win the lot, so let me tell you what it is:

From the top down there is Wool Cotton, a 50/50 machine washable blend in DK weight.  I've used this (and all the others too) many times and love it.  Easily knit into an elegant fabric, but practical for children and baby knits.

Next is Silkystones in the color Grassland.  New this season, a chic 50/50 blend of silk and linen.  I'm knitting a pullover with this now and loving it.  It has pebbly appearance that knits up easily.

Kid Classic in classic black.  An all time favorite around here.  Simply elegant blend of lambswool and kid mohair.  My choice for worsted weight outerwear.

The 4th down is Felted Tweed DK, always a favorite of tweed lovers.  This is one of the easiest yarns to knit as it has so much bounce and spring.  This is a pretty Duck Egg Blue.  50% wool, 25% alpaca and 25% viscose, a knitter's dream.  I just finished a poncho in this.

Below that is Kidsilk Amore, the big sister to Kidsilk Haze and is a new mid-season offering.  Similar in composition but bulky weight with a lofty chainette construction that knits up easily and beautifully.  I just finished a poncho with this and had a skein leftover.

The last big purple ball is Tumble in a new color, Amethyst.  This is one of the rare yarns from Rowan I have not tried.  I am not a fan of super bulkies and so leave this to someone who will treasure it.  90% alpaca, 10% cotton.

The clever knitter could squeeze a hat or several boot cuffs or wristies from each of these, but really I just want to give you a chance to get your hands on these and try them out.  I know many of you don't live near a Rowan stockist and looking at them on the internet is quite different than having them in your hands!  I'm certain you will enjoy knitting with all of them.

To enter:  Be a follower of Knitionary, and leave a comment to tell me how you follow me.  It's always interesting to find out how my readers stay in contact, be it Ravelry, FB, Bloglovin', I know there's lots of ways to follow.  Make sure there is CONTACT info!  You can't win if I can't find you!  For a second chance to win please go to the Knitionary Facebook page, like it and leave a comment under the contest post.  I'll leave this open for a week, and pick a comment from either the blog or Facebook to win.  Good luck!  This is open to international readers too.

(so sorry, cannot keep up with horrible spam, added capcha to comment section. grrr)

One of my New Year's resolutions for this year has been to try Rowan yarn. I just recently purchased my first Rowan yarn - Rowan felted tweed in cinnamon. It came in the mail yesterday, and I cannot wait to get started knitting with it.

  81. I have a very non-technical approach ... I have a number of favourite knitting blogs bookmarked and simply check them out when I feel like it. Didn't know about Bloglovin so I have signed up for it. Very pretty tower of yarn - thanks for offering it as a giveaway for some lucky person to try some great Rowan yarns.
