Wise Words on a Friday
Walking Miles In Her Shoes

Sometimes . . .

. . . it's the third Monday of the month, and that means it's time for another stash giveaway!

This particularly lovely skein is from Briar Rose Fibers.  It's their Angel Face lace weight -- 100% alpaca, 2500 yards/2286 meters, 8 oz./228 grams.  There is no color name, but it's a lovely hand-painted skein featuring autumnal shades.

The colors here are pretty close to accurate (at least, on my screen).  The colors range from a burnt orange to rust to an almost-mahogany with some sepia tones thrown in to balance it all.  

It's really lovely.  So soft.  A treat for the eyes.

The yarn is wonderful -- but it has been sitting in my stash for a very long time now.  It's time for it to go out in the world and bring joy to another knitter!

How about YOU?  Would it bring you joy?

Let me know in the comments - by this Friday - if it would.  I'll choose a winner on Friday at 5:00 pm EST (through a highly scientific, random draw-a-name-from-a-hat process), and will contact the new joyful owner for their address by email.

Thanks for letting me share the joy!

(Tell your friends.)

Hmmm. Lace weight - it does look lovely so sure, put my name in the hat 😊

Carole

It's beautiful! I don't need it but I'm sure it will go to someone who will knit something lovely from it.

Patty

Very, very tempting but I'm sure it would just sit in another stash here! It's lovely!

Bonny

It's lovely, but laceweight and I don't get along very well. Good luck to someone who will use it!

Kat

Chris has the most amazing color sense! I love the depth she achieves! It is indeed tempting - and would bring a large amount of joy to knit all 2500 yards of it! Yes, put my name in the running and good luck to everyone!

Debbie

It's a beautiful color, but I'm not fond of knitting with laceweight yarn. Someone will love it!

Helen

Oh my that is gorgeous. Please put my name in the hat?

Jo

It is just the right color for a shawl I want to knit for a dear friend. Count me in please.

Geri

That is gorgeous but I am afraid my stash draws would burst by adding one more skein. Good luck to all who enter!

margene

It's gorgeous! If only I knit with lace weight. :) Someone will be very lucky!

Mary

what a gorgeous skein, Kym! I can't wait to see where it ends up!!

Julie Parisien

Lovely yarn. Please put my name in the hat.

Emily

Beautiful! Please put my name in the hat.

Britt

Laceweight, I haven’t knit something laceweight in awhile!

Laura

One of my favorite colorways, those deep burgundy tones. There are some lovely wraps I've seen in lace weights that would be nice for this...something airy....

This looks just gorgeous and would bring me so much joy. I have big plans to.knit a few shawls this year and this color is marvelous. plus it is my birthday this weekend and would be an excellent b-day treat.
