SECOND GIVE AWAY!

Another give away!
This one is for my second 10,000 yards of yarn that I used last year. It is roving.
First there are 4 ounces of this Brown Sheep roving. It spins up to a really nice navy heather. It would be great as a pair of socks.
This is the other half of the give away. It is 4 ounces of some llama/corriedale blend. It will spin up to be a nice brown heather yarn. Both of these could be yours.
Leave a comment and you will put into the drawing.
If you don't spin then think outside the box.
You could knit a pair of thrummed mittens. They use roving and are very thick and warm.
I blocked 4 shawls this week.
The wedding shawl for Sheila, the shawl below is another sample for my Learning Lace Workshop Shawl class.
I ripped back two shawls that I had made last year and added a deeper edging. The green one is Leaves Budding and the orange one is Leaves Blazing. They each only use 450 yards of sock yarn. I love the orange colorway. It is Knit Picks Stroll Tonal sock weight yarn in Foliage.

Thanks for the chance to win some roving. I just thought it would be nice to spin a little blue, but the brown is nice too. Hmmmmm?

Beautiful shawls! I love both those rovings. I just resumed spinning after an 18-month absence.

"Ripping back a shawl I've already finished" is a concept I can't even wrap my mind around!!

I am a spinner and I could just crawl in that basket of roving and go sound asleep !!!!

I have always wanted to try spinning, but lack the supplies. Maybe winning will give me the needed push.

Your shawls are lovely!

I started learning to spin once and seem to have abandoned it, but maybe I'll try it again tomorrow.
