crochet:: i’m cleaning out my stash, so let’s have a giveaway

Not even gonna try to fool ya.  I need to de-stash.  I have favorite yarns and I have favorite patterns.  I also have not-so-favorite yarn that is DOA because I lost changed my mind about a pattern.  I can’t just let it languish in my magical craft closet, so I feel the need to share.

Here are the choices:

yarn giveaway 1Yarn Bee “Intrigue”:: sport weight and sparkly, midnight blue, 2 skeins @ 3oz/251 yd ea., acrylic

I made a sweater with it here in pink.

yarn giveaway 3

Deborah Norville, “Serenity Garden Yarn” :: fingering weight, hibiscus red, 2 skeins @ 2.29oz/185yd ea,  100% microfiber

I made socks with it here in purple.

yarn giveaway 2

Deborah Norville, “Serenity Garden Yarn” :: fingering weight, mountain heather, 2 skeins @ 2.29oz/185yd ea,  100% microfiber

yarn giveaway 4

Yarn Bee “Highland Thistle”:: heavy weight and fringey, mackay blue, 3 skeins @ 3.5oz/111 yd ea., acrylic

I made a hat with it here in pink.

Now that the disclaimer and the photos are posted, if you are interested in playing along and can give a good home to some needy skeins, please leave me a comment with your choice.  And the fun word of the day.

My word for the day is twatwaffle.  As in the jerk at the DMV told me to go to yet another line and I replied, “you sir are a twatwaffle”.

Yes, to be one of the 4 proud new caretakers of this lovely yarn, please leave a comment with your fun word of the day and your choice. If your name is randomly drawn out of a hat, I will ship it to you US Mail next weekend.  Unless you are said twatwaffle from the DMV because I will magically lose the one with your name on it and not be awarding you any pretty yarn.

To reiterate::

1.) your fun word of the day

2.) your choice in orphaned yarn

3.) you may comment either here or on my fb page, or both ~ that means you can get up to 2 entries

4.) contest closes on Tuesday 9/10/13 by my bedtime, cuz I just can’t stay awake till midnight

Good luck friends 🙂

  1. My (not really so ) fun word of the day is caccapoo. This is the Ital-English word that my kids have created to mean, yes, poop. My 4-year old screams it at the top of his lungs whenever he needs to go! No matter where we are. Yeah, fun! 🙂

    The orphaned yarn I would like to have is really any of them, but if I had to choose, I’d pick the blue Highland Thistle or the red Deborah Norville.

    Thanks!!

  2. my fun word of the day is “bumfuzzles” as in “IT bumfuzzles me why I never win anything” your funword of the day is “twatwaffle” as in “that twatwaffle won the drawing so that I couldn’t” …I would love the Deborah Norville, “Serenity Garden Yarn” :: fingering weight, mountain heather, 2 skeins @ 2.29oz/185yd ea, 100% microfiber

  3. Okay so I wasn’t aware of that word. You’re a bad influence. 😉

    My favorite word of the day is “snibberblot”. This is a made-up word (it better be!) comes from Bonanza and near as I can gather is an insult. For example “Take care, snibberblot.” The person would not know if you’re being insulting or if it’s an endearing name.

    Choice in orphan yarn would be Highland Thistle although Serenity Garden is also very pretty.

  4. My fun word would have to be “pupfartlet”. On our trip down to the coast for a family reunion this past weekend, we took our two dog “children”. One of them kept squeaking out “pupfartlets”. Shew-Weee! When the fam is in the road all one can do is crack the windows.

    My fave orphan is Deborah Norville, “Serenity Garden Yarn” :: fingering weight, hibiscus red, 2 skeins @ 2.29oz/185yd ea, 100% microfiber.

  6. Ok finally stopped laughing at “twatwaffle”. I must confess I am one of those people that makes up words all the time(usually because I can’t remember a fancy word or am in the wrong company for an expletive. This morning the word of choice has been “needleknocker” My grandson is into everything today especially my needle/hooks etc. so….The little needleknocker is driving me crazy.” All the yarn is beautiful but the choice would be the Serenity Garden.

  11. My fun word of the day, just because my friends used it and confused me terribly, was “Grep”. Used in a sentence, as they did, “This tastes like grep”.It’s simple but effective in confusing people.

    I really like the Deborah Norville, “Serenity Garden Yarn”. I can see those colors in a variety of projects. :3

  14. What a funtastic contest! That could be my word, but instead I choose “bawlderdash”. The actual meanings are: “senseless, stupid, or exaggerated talk or writing; nonsense.” However, I have used it in lieu of “cripe!” (or something worse – LOL).
