I'm in Hawaii! Yay! My trip so far has been fantastic! We've been busy swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, hiking, exploring, eating, drinking, sleeping, resting... you get the idea. Jasmine got to take surf lessons yesterday morning and since there's not a lot of time for blogging, I thought I would share a couple pictures instead.

7am at the beach for an early lesson



There's Jasmine catching a wave!



So, how many of you have been following me since the start of my blog? Most, I hope! Yesterday, August 1st, was my blog's half year anniversary (if there is such a thing). Yay, for the YarnOnTheHouse blog! It's a 6 month old baby now!! I had very high hopes for this blog when I first started, and I have seen all my expectations succeeded and surpassed thus far. Thank you to all my faithful followers. I wouldn't be able to run this blog without your support and readership.

In honor of this small milestone, I have one of my most favorite yarn companies sponsoring the next two giveaways! Ladies and gentlemen.... it's MALABRIGO! Malabrigo is a yarn company out of Uruguay that makes the most beautiful yarns I have ever had a chance to work with, but it's not only me that loves the Malabrigo, check out the Malabrigo Junkies group on Ravelry that has over 6,000 members! Obviously, Malabrigo is doing something right...

Malabrigo sent me five skeins of their brand spankin' new Rasta yarn to share with my followers. This yarn is amazing! It's a super bulky, 100% merino wool that is extremely soft. Take a look...





Since, they sent me five skeins to share, I've decided to keep one skein to try out (because it's research for the blog of course) and offer FOUR followers a chance to win a skein each of this incredible yarn.

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


1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.

2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 8/8/10. That's it this week - just leave any comment you would like! Or, you can tell me how you originally found my blog if you want to! :)

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

scottishbunny2003 said...

Oh wow, Mal is usually gorgeous, but that one actually LOOKS edible, like yards and yards of yummy liquorice laces wound up into skeins... It satisfies both yarn and sweet cravings, just by looking at it. Bonus points? NO calories!

Congrats on the half-year birthday!

Brittaney K said...

I love Malabrigo! I'm not sure how I found your blog. I think it was Ravelry.

Blendab1 said...

I recieved a skein of this yarn as a gift when my Mom passed away and it is so beautiful I don't want to use it. I love the colorway of these skeins they are so fall inspired.
I found your blog on Ravelry and I enjoy your blogs and giveaways so very much! Keep up the awesome work!!

Ginger said...

I think I found your blog through another blog, can't remember which one though.

JP said...

I didn't think I'd been here since the start, but I just checked the first few give aways and apparently I have. Wow-certainly doesn't seem like 6 months. Absolutely no idea how I got here which is the case with most blogs I follow.

Loving the blog and all your reccommendations so far. In fact because of your blog I planned my vacation around a yarn shop in Medina, OH (Studio Knits? Very nice. Go visit.) just to look for Madeline Tosh DK in Lapis. (Must. Get. Now.)

Sadly not in stock but I did leave with a Mystery Purple Malabrigo (that I've never worked with before) and a Namaste bag, which I wouldn't have known about w/o your blog. I just was wondering what to do with just one skein of the Malabrigo when-poof-you mention the Ravelry group.

Looking forward to another 6 months and more!!

Megan said...

I found your blog when you were giving away the yarn of another blog I read. I have had my eye on the Rasta....please let us know what you think of it.

Sarah said...

What a beautiful yarn! I can't remember how I came across the blog, probably via another knitting blog.

mommieof4munchkins said...

That yarn looks so yummy! I have never used Malabrigo myself but did buy my first skein last week to try out in a KAL in September! I think I got a message from you on Ravelry but I am truly blessed to have met you in person! Can't wait to meet up for coffee sometime soon! Have a great rest of your vacation.

Turtle said...

congrats on the 6 month mark! You've accomplished much in that time.

congrats to the lucky winners from last week.

That rasta looks gorgeous! Hadn't heard about it. I don't remember how i stumbled onto your blog, funny though as you live less than an hour away!

Enjoy the islands, with our mellow summer i have been a bit homesick for the islands, after 12+ years living there it got into my blood!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I am so glad you & your family are having a great time in Hawaii. The pictures are great. The water looks so inviting. It has been in upper 90's and low 100's for 2 weeks, and no end in sight. I live in Florence, Alabama.

aanderson said...

The yarn is beautiful, Hawaii is beautiful, and you are beautiful for having such a great blog! Here's to many more 6 month anniversaries!!!

Driggs said...

Does it make me more likely to win if I say I've never used Malabrigo? My LYS doesn't carry it! I am new to your blog too... found it because my new fav dyer is in your Ravelry group. Two points in my favor? :D

Emily said...

Beautiful yarn... perfect for my winter hat and scarf! Enjoy your blog... found it through the Never Not Knitting blog/podcast.

Elizabeth MacR said...

I found your blog through Ravelry, but I assumed you had been doing it for awhile. It's so professional, great job. Love that yarn.

Allison said...

I think I found your blog through Rav, but I'm not sure...maybe through a friend's blog? Anyway, I love being a follower!

Rachel D. said...

Is that the Archangel colorway? My first Malabrigo was the sock weight in that colorway and it started a serious addiction. I would love to try the new Rasta yarn!

flossie said...

congratulations on your half-year anniversary! quite the milestone. that skein of yarn looks positively scrumptious! what a way to celebrate; I hope you enjoy knitting it up.

sherry said...

The Rasta color-way is another winning for malabrigo.
Congrats on your 6 month mark.
Love the beach photos...sigh.

flossie said...

oh, and I think I found your blog through a myriad of other knitting blogs a while back... probably right around when you started. I think there were only about 2 posts then.

liz said...

I've been a reader since you started blogging 6 months ago. I don't often leave comments, but wanted to say congratulations! Enjoy your Hawaiian vacation! I also love Malabrigo. I love it's gorgeous fluffy single-ply loft! It especially blooms once you wet block!

I found your blog on Rav. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

I'm pretty sure it was Never Not Knitting that led me here. All the pretty yarn pictures kept me here.

Kelly K. said...

Happy 6-mo anniversary. I'm sure I found your blog through some other blog because that's how I come across all of them. Networking. Isn't it wonderful?!

Barbara said...

I hope you are having a wonderful time in Hawaii. I would move there in a heartbeat if I could talk the rest of my family into it. The colors are stunning and I really really hope I win. I've heard of malabrigo but have never had the chance to work with it. I've got my fingers crossed!!!

Emily said...

Wow that yarn is lovely! My birthday was August 1st too, so congrats on 6 months^__^ I found your blog through Ravelry as well and love following it!

I have yet to experience the world that is Malabrigo. Would love this to be my first. :)

Julia said...

Surf lessons sound awesome. I'd love to try it someday, but something about that deep, deep water that probably has fish swimming in it next to me just is keeping me from it. The Malabrigo is gorgeous! Enjoy the rest of your trip :)

Stephanie said...

my love for Malabrigo is such that it almost swayed my World Cup loyalties in favor of Uruguay so I was really excited to see big pictures of the new rasta on your blog this week! I started following your wonderful insights into the knitting world after you featured Three Irish Girls and have been hooked ever since! Hope you have an amazing rest of your vacation.

ilina said...

Oooh malabrigo! I love the stuff, I think they feed their sheep with clouds or something to make it so soft... only tried laceweight so far but this looks wonderfully soft and squishy.
Found you via your group on ravelry, though I'm not sure how I found that.

Ooh, Malabrigo. I'll try not to drool.

I can't remember how i found your blog, it was ravelry or a friend in the knitting group I go to. But, what a great concept, and fun too! Thanks so much for the great giveaways, hope i win something someday!

Frankly Beka said...

I've been reading since the first post. A friend messaged me on facebook saying there was free yarn to be had. I showed up and was surprised to find that this "free" on the internet was, in fact, free. And not just free. It's also rewarding. I have "found" several yarn dyers I love, and am having trouble deciding where to buy. Now I'm beginning to realize that this free yarn might come with some costly knowledge. (And cozy socks!)

Mary said...

love love love the beautiful yarn!!
When I first found ou about the knitting blogs I would go thru people knitting blog rolls and check them out that way. Thats how i found you!

Erin said...

I love the colors of this yarn. To me they sum up summertime and all the long lasting, beautiful light that is cast. Ok, so I know that is really deep - but it's how I feel! :) Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Floderten said...

Ooh, that yarn looks interesting... I've got several skeins of Malabrigo, but being a student and not having easy access to that gorgeous yarn, I haven't actually used any of it yet! Perhaps it's time to knit a nice hat or scarf for winter...

Anyway, thanks for having this blog. :) It's a wonderful opportunity for people to try out new yarns/patterns, and for dyers/pattern designers/etc. to get their products out there!

Oh, that Malabrigo! Who could resist? Certainly not me! Beautiful, lovely yarn, isn't it? Alas, no Malabrigo for me as I have recently been on the receiving end of your largesse and it would be greedy to even think of it! Whoever wins - how lucky you are!

I can't remember now where I found Yarn On the House, but I"m glad I did! I LOVE Malabrigo yarns. I'm working on my third project with Malabrigo since I discovered it. It's lucious! I'd love to win another skein and get started on something else!

Love your blog and all the givaways. If I had to choose a color it would be difficult, but I love the Kettle dyed yarns and I love greens, so that would be the direction I would head.
