In the latest episode of the KnitBritish podcast I had a little bit of a giveaway palooza with The Bletchley Collection book, by Joanne Scrace with Eden Cottage Yarns AND this lovely yarn from Ginger Twist Studio.
To avoid the confusion of two giveaway entries on the one post, I thought I would have a separate one for the yarn. You can enter the competition for The Bletchley Collection by following this link.
To be eligible to win this gorgeous skein of 100% British BFLl Super Sheep Aran from Ginger’s Hand Dyed, in colour selkie, please visit Ginger Twist Studio and leave a comment telling me your favourite colourway OTHER THAN selkie.
| The Not-Very-Small-Print
The competition will close on Tuesday, 31st March and this competition is only open to those in the UK and Ireland.
Ooh my favourite colour would have to be Je Suis Prest!
I think Grey Gardens is really beautiful, and also Little Cat Feet – so difficult to pick out a favourite, but I love the idea of fog-coloured yarn, so maybe the Little Cat Feet!
For me there is no competition. It has to be “father of funk”.
(Says she, sitting in her purple pj’s, socks and slippers)
I am digging Je Suis Prest, but in a fight between it and Lallybroch, I think Lallybroch may win.
Not fair- Selkie is to die for, but I also like Je Suis Prest. Very beautiful!
[…] sheep aran as a prize. This is 100% BFL and it is so warm and squishy. To enter this competition please follow this link (i.e. please keep the comments on this post for the book giveaway). Thanks to Jess for these lovely […]
Oooh, tricksy one. It would have to be Jealous Suisse Prest I think.
Got to love auto correct – sorry
Difficult choice with those beautiful colours, but would think it would have to be Father of Funk!
I really like Lallybroch and Lady Lovely Locks
Definitely father of funk – like all Jess’s colour ways it gorgeous.
If I had to choose it’d be Je Suis Prest – but they’re all lovely
For me it would have to be Little Cat Feet. Apart from the gorgeous grey colour, I think it would be a fitting tribute to the eight little cat feet that live with me!
Really hard to pick. I think Hocus Pocus just wins out over the Scottish Play.
My favourite Ginger’s Hand-dyed colourway is Witching Hour. No, Girl on Fire. No, Witching Hour. It’s a close thing…
Father of Funk….I mean seriously that’s both a great name and a wow of a colour!
So many lovely colours to choose from, but I think I’d have to go with Lallybroch.
Oh so hard to choose I’m quite partial to the witching hour but the Scottish play has tweaked my interest from the new kids and becoming a favourite.
I spent most of my life in Canada – it has to be Green Gables!
Hard to choose, there are some lovely colours, my favourite is Lallybroch
My favourite colour is Tink. Although if I checked again tomorrow it might change, there are lots of lovely colours!
Gosh! That’s a tough one, I like Hocus Pocus and have some in my stash which will eventually be a TCK Raindrop sweater but my all time favourite is one that I don’t think is on the website, Big Red again I have some in my stash and again it will be knitted with this time TCK Lush cardigan.
Hard to choose. Swell Ewe Sock – Father of Funk. Beautiful.
Je suis prest for me! But selkie looks yummy!
My favourite is Father of Funk I just love purple!
For some reason, I’m really drawn to Lallybroch. It’s not one of my typical colours, but it seems to have a depth that I really like the look off….wish I could see it in person!
As a purple girl, has to be Father of Funk!
In this base, Scottish Play. Purple accessories are perfect next to my petrol coat.
Think looks fabulous!
Yum- I would love to win this!
I’d go for Grey Gardens, a swirl of soft sea-foam, fab! That’s if I was restricted to super Super Sheep Aran of course!
Mine is father of funk. Love purple. 🙂
So difficult! I am a sucker for greeny yellows, so I absolutely adore Gorblimey, but I also love the intensity of The Scottish Play. So one of those two!
Hocus Pocus for me. What a fabulous and complex colour. Thank you for the giveaway.
I was watching a documentary about James Brown last night, so it has to be Father of Funk for me.
In the Aran it is Grey Gardens but across the whole shop I LOVE Girl on Fire!
Who doesn’t love a round, deep, luxurious purple….. Father of Funk. Now I don’t know how to replicate in text a James-Brown-style yelp!
I love all the colours but if I have to choose, it would be Father
I loved loads of them but Swell Ewe sock was my favourite
I’d choose Father of Funk.
For me it has to be Je Suis Prest, it suddenly reminded me of a batwing jumper I knitted on large needles in exactly those hues as a teenager back in the 60s. Long since gone to the great yarn stash in the sky of course, but happy memories have been reawakened!
Je Suis Prest is beautiful with those intense dark blues and greens just waiting to be revealed.
Je Suis Prest is a gorgeous colour, full of surprises and ‘I am ready’ to knit with it!
So many gorgeous colours but Persuasion has twisted my arm to choose it.
The Witching Hour for me. Although I love all the blue shades. I might have chosen Selkie if it had been allowed.
Just loving Father of Funk, that is TOO pretty!
So many beautiful colours. If you twist my arm to choose I’d go with Father of Funk
hard call but I think I’d have to go for Girl on Fire
Oooooohhh Father of Funk (love the name too)!
Definitely Father of Funk – particularly as I am approaching that age when I am thinking I should wear purple as Jenny Joseph says in her poem “Warning”. Only joking, I just love purple but then again I also love most shades of green.
Je Suis Prest definitely, it’s stunning.
Father of Funk is mine! ….I feelso good!
It would have to Father of Funk to make a scarf for my lovely husband who is a big fan of James Brown! It would truly be a funky accessory.
It just has to be Little Cat Feet, I love it
difficult, they are all so gorgeous, tempted by Father of Funk, but Hocus Pocus would make such a lovely cowl to wear with my winter coat.
Little Cat Feet – for the Edinburgh haar stealing in from the sea!
Such a gorgeous range of colours, I love Father of Funk.
My favourite colourway in this yarn would be Je Suis Prest, although they are all beautiful!
Birdie on my shoulder!
Je suis prest. Love that deep green.
I love the Father of funk colourway, so pretty. Thank you c
Hocus Pocus – a little bit dark and stormy….
Ooh, they’re all gorgeous but I do love Lallybroch 🙂
With three cats in the house, the choice is obviously
LITTLE CATS FEET
If it came to a fight, it would be between Je Suis Prest and Hocus Pocus, and I reckon Je Suis Prest would win thanks to those glorious flashes of green. But only just!
I love the je suis prest colourway!
Echoing the Je Suis Prest love. I’m a sucker for peacock colours!
Je Suis Prest is my favourite too – gosh, it’s a popular choice!
OH It simple has to be ‘little cat feet’ not only because it is such as ssoft lovely colour but it also has an adorable name too.
I’m loving ‘Grey Gardens’. I wish I could squish it from here!
Hocus Pocus. Because I love the sound of the name (and the dark colour too) 🙂
My favourite is Grey Garden.
So tough! However, it would probably have to be Witching Hour. Unless I change my mind!
I think my favourite has to be Girl on Fire!
