The two winners of the Knit Kit giveaway are:

Jen who wrote, "A row and stitch counter. I can never remember the amount of stitches I have." Jen, the row counter on this Knit Kit is fabulous and you are really going to enjoy it.

And, MEBacons that said, "I'm always digging around in my 'tool bag' for stitch markers and a crochet hook." No more digging!!

Congratulations! Please shoot me an email at yarnonthehouse@gmail.com with your info to claim your prize.

Back during giveaway #9 I asked for you to tell me which designers or yarns you might like to see on the blog in the future. I had a follower contact me by email and suggest this week's sponsor, so I knew this yarn had to be good. I'm very happy to announce that this week's yarn giveaway is Scout's Swag hand dyed yarn!

Jamie aka Scout is the owner and lady behind this beautiful yarn line. If you have not visited her site yet, you have to check it out. She offers amazing hand dyed yarns and each colorway is so unique - not to mention the yarn is so squish-i-licious! Here is Jamie's interview:




1. Jamie you are the owner, photographer and indie dyer of Scout's Swag hand dyed yarns. Why don't you start by introducing yourself and telling us a little about who you are and what you do?

I am Jamie aka Scout, owner of Scout’s Swag & scout j photography. I started Scout’s Swag five years ago because I seemed to always sort of be in the know about the cool knitting and crochet swag that was out there in the craft world and decided I might as well sell it all instead of just telling everyone to go buy it from other people! I had a number of friends who were running their own Indie businesses and I wanted to be able to work with them and help support their businesses so it was a win/win situation for everyone involved. I’m also a mom of two kiddos who are 8 & 11 and keep me extremely busy on top of everything else. The other endeavor on which I am currently working is a how-to book on dyeing fiber with Melanie Falick of STC Crafts. The publishing date is the spring of 2012.

2. How did you get into hand dyeing yarns?

In the fall of 2002, I believe it was the first issue of knitty.com, there was an article on dyeing yarn with Kool-Aid and it inspired me to dye my first batch of yarn. I had fun with it, but hated how the yarn smelled afterwards and didn’t love how muted the yarn turned out. I didn’t play with dyeing again for a few years until I got a book on dyeing, some un-dyed yarn and some dyes in a swap. I played around a few times with a friend until I got the colors I liked and was immediately hooked. This was when the sock craze had started and I just wasn’t finding the bright, vibrant colors with which I wanted to knit. I took a few pictures of the yarn I had dyed, posted it on my blog and I had readers who asked if they could buy it! Who knew five years later I would be writing a book on dyeing yarn!?

3. You have a beautiful selection of colorways that you offer. How do you come up with the names for your colors?

I have probably named about half of the colorways and the people who custom ordered it name the rest. I like to get my customers and friends involved when it comes to naming my colorways. It’s more fun! For example, my friend Christy named, Damn Debris, Run Like Hell, Blue Roof and Storm Surge for a Hurricane Sock Party she organized. Those names still crack me up! When I name them myself I’m usually inspired by a picture or something I’ve seen and then that takes on the name. Like the colorway I just did for my April Yarn Club is called Eureka. I was on a trip to Colorado and saw this beautiful frozen stream by the Eureka mine. I dyed up a colorway to match the stream and the name was born!

4. You also have beautiful photography on your sites. What came first? The love of photography or yarn?

Photography actually came first. I have a picture my father took and developed in his own dark room of my mother pregnant with me. I grew up with a darkroom and have always loved taking pictures. When trying to sell yarn it’s extremely important to be able to accurately represent your yarn and colorways as best as possible so it’s a bonus for me that I’m able to do it myself and not have to hire a photographer to do that for me! But I will say that I’ve also knit my whole life too. I grew up ski racing in Vermont where almost all little girls learn how to knit ski hats.

5. What's next for Scout's Swag? Do you have any new colors in the works?

I’ve been so busy working on the book and keeping up with my bi-monthly yarn club (starts up April of every year) that I haven’t been able to really play too much with new colorways for the shop. However, I’ve fallen in love with immersion dyeing and the semi-solids I create with that technique. I need to post more pictures of the yarn I’ve dyed recently! They are super pretty.

6. What do you currently have on the needles?

I had a really good run there for a while during the winter cranking out a few of the Wood Hollow hats by Kirsten/Through the loops. I made one for my husband and then my daughter and then cast on one for my son……and there it sits about 3 rows into it. Seems like that’s how my knitting goes. I hate knitting once it gets warm.

7. Do you have any hidden talents or super powers? These could of course be hidden knitting talents of super powers.

Hahahaa! Oh how I wish!

8. What's your worst knitting or yarn dyeing disaster?

I don’t think I’ve really had one! I’m sort of one of those, measure twice cut once type of people. However, the one thing that could be considered a disaster is when I’ve dyed a skein, left it out to dry and it gets so tangled that I can’t even use it. Nothing frustrates me more than having to toss an entire skein of yarn especially when it’s a custom job!!!

I will admit that recently when I test knit the Wood Hollow hat I didn’t follow the directions very well and didn’t do repeat the cable part 3 times and almost got through all of the decreases before whining to Kirsten about how short it looked. I hated having to frog back through all of the decreases but I did! It ended up working out but I almost just tossed the whole project. I don’t have a lot of patience sometimes. HA!

9. If you could live and knit anywhere in the world, where would you knit and live?

See that’s hard for me because I like it to be cold when I knit but I hate the cold!!! I can do socks and small projects on the beach but the sand bothers me! So…..hum. I would still go with the beach somewhere. I need to travel to a few more beaches before I could answer this question!!

10. And last but not least, if you were to be drinking a cocktail while reading my blog, what would it be?

Right now? I’d say either a dirty martini with three olives or a vodka tonic with lime! I used to be a Cosmopolitan girl until I realized how many calories they were!


Jamie, thank you for taking the time to answer the Q's! Scout's Swag is generously sponsoring the chance for TWO winners to win a skein of 100% Merino Wool fingering weight hand dyed yarn. Each skein boasts 400 yards! Look at the beautiful colorways




Here are some up close shots of these beauties:



color: Eureka delux




color: Illini


I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:

1) Have an address in the US to ship the yarn to. If you have a friend or relative that has a US mailing address who is willing to be your shipping sponsor, that will work as well. I will send it to them and they can then forward it on to you.

2) Post a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 5/16/2010, telling us which Scout's Swag colorway is your favorite. Visit the gallery, and come back to leave a comment here telling us which color you like. My fav is Daisies in case you were curious! ;)

Again, I'll randomly pick the winners on Sunday and post the results on Monday along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.

Sincerely,

Ve

I love Tarzhay! So pretty. That llini color-way looks just like a monarch butterfly. Gorgeous!

JaneD said...

I thought of butterflies, too, when I saw that Illini colorway--gorgeous! I've seen some great colorways created from Kool-aid, but tried a more natural approach with turmeric, with some interesting results!

Kathleen said...

I love Convergence! Awesome colors

fiberfrontlines said...

It's flat-out mean to make me choose!! Right now, I'm feeling the "Inner Rage". :-)

Elizabeth said...

Thanks for the chance to win! My favorite colorway is Bluetini.

kristyh1981 said...

Color Queen just popped out at me! I Love it!!! The blues and purples are the perfect combo!

Sara said...

I would have to say - that I loved
Harlots Mums - although a couple of others spoke to me as well. Kill Bill is truly a wild color!

fridica said...

OOoooooooooh, definitely Socktoberfest! Love it!

Anonymous said...

I think I'd pick the SocktoberFest, mainly because it's out of my usual box, but it was truly a difficult choice! Thanks to both of you for your generosity!

kshotz said...

It's definitely Cookie for me! Love the pink & brown!! Great interview with a wonderful indie dyer!

Kim in IA

The Knitting Gnome said...

There are almost too many to choose from. I like Harlot's Mums, Hunker Down, Lederhosen, and S'mores (and about a dozen others).

Loca4crafts said...

My favorite is Zuluknitty, but they are all beautiful.

Emily said...

Harlot's Mums... And I love that one of the colorways is named Deatheaters!

Kelly K. said...

They are all so beautiful but I think my fav is Bibliotheque.

woolandchocolate said...

They are all so gorgeous - how to pick just one? I think I like Hunker Down the best. I am a sucker for purple!

Joanna G. said...

I love Needles on Fire. Beautiful!

marlono said...

I love Roaslie! And the Eureka Delux example that you photographed above. SOOOO pretty!!

Jamie said...

llini is so stunning!

susanmhj said...

Love the gimlet! Would love to give that one a try.
Agree with all the others who say Illini looks like a monarch butterfly!

The Werling's said...

I LOVE the Snowbunny! How beautiful! =)

MamaMay said...

I have 3 favs:

hizKNITS, Tarzhay, ZuluKnitty.

Kim said...

They are all so pretty. It was hard narrowing it down to just one. I love the Northern Lights colorway.

K said...

I love the Hunker Down purple colorway.

Grace said...

How can I decide? They are all beautiful! I like Rosalie or Hunker Down! The two skeins would make for a beautiful shawl.

Vanessa said...

Harlots Mums!! So original!

Alex said...

I love Bibliotheque and Hunker Down. I love purples, but don't seem to have too much purple yarn. Time to change that, I think...

flossie said...

I love Bibliotheque! I'm an avid reader, and I love all the colors incorporated in that colorway.

LilChickadee said...

I have to admit, I really like the Illini. My dad went to college there! It's always funny to watch him try to cheer for a Mizzou vs. Illini game (my sister and I go to Mizzou) because he never knows who to cheer for.

Snowbunny is also another favorite. I've always been a fan of chocolate brown and light blue together!

Janelle said...

Gorgeous colors! My favorite is orchids.

Jen said...

ALL the colors are beautiful but I really like Roasalie.

KD said...

So many great choices! I like hizKNITS best though.

Christine said...

Those are the most beautiful colors! I am attracted to the color, ZuluKnitty!

jessecreations said...

I love Tarzhay, but if I won the Illini it would be fun b/c my dad lives in Illinois and is a big Fighting Illini fan. So is my stepmom; I might have to make her an Illini clapotis or something!

All are beautiful but I really like Strawberry Quick!

Oh wow, so hard to choose from so many great colors! I think I'd choose Puesta del Sol because it just looks like the sun plucked right from the sky.

becky said...

What pretty yarn. I think my favorite is Rosalie.

JessieLynn Knits said...

I think I'm fallin' inlove with Tarzhay! So many colors, you could wear whatever you knit it up to be with anything! She really does some beautiful works of art!

Jessica

Ginger said...

Those yarns are gorgeous!! I especially LOVE Turquoise Snowbunny which ironically reminds me of a tropical beach.

Tanzi said...

I love the hizKNITS and the ZuluKnitty. I love how many colors are found in both of those skeins! Amazing! They make me think of fields of wildflowers.

Fran Langum / Blue Gal said...

I love "power couples." You must click on the thumbnail to see how gorgeous that colorway is.

staci said...

I love discovering "new" yarns and designers! I don't consider myself a yellow-type of girl, but am captivated by the Kill Bill colorway and am so curious to see it knit up!!! Thanks :)

Jen said...

hizKnits is such an unusual colorway, I just love it!

Julie said...

I'm digging Appletini and now I'm thirsty.

It's a tough choice, but I'm going for Rosalie.

Tracy said...

I love them all, but Hunker Down might be my fave -- I love purple yarn :)

French Press Knits said...

I actually love the Eureka that's pictured, but I didn't see it in the gallery.

Allison von Berg said...

Hokies is my favorite! It is really hard to find the "right" Hokie maroon :D

Darlene said...

What beautiful colours how could you choose just one I want them all! Is that a bad thing? I think a new colour every week would be a great present to me!!!

RoamingKnitter said...

My first pick was the new color - Lavendar Mint. Then I saw Rosalie and lost my heart. Rich, blooming colors. Yum

Sherry said...

The Needles on Fire color-way is a pink dream! There are so many wonderful color-ways. Jamie's color mixes are beautiful.

Kristen said...

I love DeathEaters and Power Couple.

kimz said...

Lederhosen looks delicious! Then again, so does everything...I sense shopping coming on.

Kristy Lorenz said...

So beautiful! My fingers are itching to try some! Plus one of my favorite cousins is an Illini and I promised to make him some winter gear before he goes back in the fall, and this colorway would be perfect!

heather said...

That Lederhosen is pretty amazing ... and what a great name!

stringsofpurls said...

I love Harlots Mums. What beautiful colors! thanks for a great giveaway!

midwifemom@clearwire.net

Eva said...

Wow. Already I'm contemplating the gorgeous gloves I would knit from a skein of hunker down. LOVE LOVE LOVE all the color choices.

Jennifer said...

They are all so pretty!

I really like the Illini (it reminds me of a monarch butterfly)!

karen said...

Heather said...

I really love both Death Eaters and Inner Rage, but they are all so gorgeous.

I hope I win! Those yarns are delicious!

Connie said...

Wow! Hard to choose. It's funny how the names of the yarns have a tendency to influence my decision -- something I don't pay attention to when I'm in my LYS.
If I had to choose today, I would pick up the Eureka in a heartbeat and, then the Hunker Down.
Thanks for the chance for some of this luscious yarn.

LizzieK8 said...

Convergence just jumped right out at me...WOW

Allison said...

I like Secret. It is so hard to choose!

squiggi said...

livin4fishin said...

appletini! Of course I'm very partial to green, but love it. Needles on Fire looks fun too. Beautiful colors!

The Chase Family said...

How to pick just one favorite? I tried writing just one down, but came up with a list of at LEAST 8 colorways!
If I had to choose, though, I really like H.F.S./Smores - great color combination! And who can resist a food-inspired colorway! lol

knittingdancer said...

All of the colors are beautiful.
Bluetini is my favorite.

Rzimmerman said...

I like the Eureka deluxe - beautiful - but then again the sockoberfest is lovely, too...power couples...mmmm....too many to choose from...

Holy Moly - those are some amazing colors - I think I like Harlotmums the best. Love the name!! Although KillBill is a close second!

I have visited Scout's Swag but never purchase yarn. What a treat it would be to win.

I love the snow bunny! It would make a fabulous toy bear.

Kristen said...

I am so in love with bluetini because I love anything blue. The different shades are absolutely gorgeous and would make a beautiful shawl!

ellen z. said...

I really like the Illini colorway -- my parents went to University of Illinois, so I guess it's in my blood. :-D

Now what ? said...

Picking just one is difficult! I really am loving Deatheaters because I have recently fallen in love with green and I like that color combo! It's really tough to pick just one...really!

cherie said...

I love Glorious Morning Glories! Great blues, with just a few other colors to set them off.

Oh wow! No kidding on the color saturation! I love all the colors, but the Northern lights is my favorite.

Okay, I know you asked for favorite, but I love so many!

Thank you for introducing me to a great site.

Merrie said...

My goodness, those are some beautiful colorways! I think my favorite is "Hedgehogs," because I love the light pink/brown combination. Reminds me a bit of an argyle sweater from the '50s. :)

terip said...

Harlot's Mums is gorgeous! I've never done a project with fingering weight before...and I think that colorway would keep me inspired!

Turquoise Snowbunny. Not for me, but for a new mom who needs a gift for herself as a belated first mother's day present!

Holly said...

I'm loving Hunker Down. I actually thought to myself, "holy cow, that's gorgeous!" when I saw it.

3 "JT's" said...

These are so beautiful! I love Northern Lights, Rosalie, Blue in Green and Hokie (since I am married to one)... oh, was I supposed to pick just one? Impossible!
Jenny (jrt35 on ravelry)

sacha said...

I love that Illini for sure- orange with a little sprig of something even bolder!

Courtney said...

I don't normally like pink, but I need Hedgehog. I'm just drawn to the soft, feminine and classic colorway. I also like Bibliotheque, Eureka and Kill Bill.
So much prettiness to choose from!

Sarah B. said...

I think Tarzhay is my favorite, although as a witness to Katrina (rode it out on a houseboat), I'm a bit partial to Run like Hell and Storm Surge. Wish I could've seen Damn Debris and Blue Roofs!

CraftyLaDonna said...

I was going to go with Appletini, but then I saw Kill Bill. So many pretties!

Nicole said...

So many amazing ones but I'd have to say 'Secret'.

Jaime P said...

Silver Streaks for sure!

quinn said...

Wow!! It's a toss-up between Rosalie and Storm Surge and about six others! But the first one I'd cast on with would be Rosalie :)

Lavender Mint is my favorite, but I'm a purple person. Cookie is a close second, because I think that pinks and browns are gorgeous together.

Pamela said...

I love these colours - took me forever to choose just one - but it has to be needles on fire - as I hope mine will be with this wonderful yarn.
(say I - as I sip a dirty martini myself)
Thanks

Kyliie said...

I LOVE cookies! It is soooo gorgeous!

katherinelynn_04 said...

All the colorways are so beautiful, but my favorite would be Northern Lights. The color combo is gorgeous. It is now on my for future purchase list. Just as soon as I finish the rest of my stash...could be awhile.

Rosie said...

Loops is by far my favorite! They are all great though.

Knitschmidt said...

Just one? I love so many! But right now I'm particularly loving Gimlet.

I like northern lights! So many beautiful colors though!
