giveaway #115

The six lucky winners of the unclaimed skeins are:

welshcob, Christine Lima, Becca, Amanda Vondrasek, Faye, & Fabiknits.

Congratulations! Please contact me at yarnonthehouse@gmail.com to collect your prizes.


Over the course of the last 3 years I have received so many lovely gifted skeins of yarn from indie dyers that were featured on my blog, but somehow several of these gorgeous skeins have been plopped into my never ending yarn stash to not see the light of a knitting day! So sad! I think these lonely, forgotten, stunning skeins of yarn need to get into someone's hot little knitting fingers and quick, don't you?! They deserve it! So, this quick giveaway is in honor of all the sweet, talented, creative dyers out there that sent me gift yarn and the bad, mean, unworthy blogger (me!) who deserves to gift them to you, my wonderful, faithful knitting/crocheting, blog following friends.


GA115


Two deserving followers will each receive two skeins each and a little stitch marker treat.


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, 7/28/13. What color or color(s) do you seem to knit with or if you are anything like me, stash the most, just in case there's ever a need to knit enough items to cover the entire world population in?


I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.

Sincerely,

Ve

I love all shades and variations of teal, so can't resist buying it, but I love .... well, let's just be honest, I love yarn and am in the relatively early stages of stashing, so I find it pretty easy to justify just about anything!

sacha said...

I find myself knitting with blues and greys and reds, but would love to break out a bit and try some yellow or green!

Sarah V. said...

Green is my #1 weakness, but I also really love coral, sunny yellow, plum, and gray :)

Alice said...

I look best in and tend to stash rose tones--and then I love purple--and then I have a passion for the perfect brown. So, I stash more than I can ever knit--but maybe it will allow me to live to be 200 so I can knit all these skeins. Maybe? You think?

Renee Anne said...

I've found myself gravitating toward jewel tones (blues, purples, greens) but I also have a love of neutrals and I even have some of everything else in my stash (even yellow and pink and orange - all of which I don't like much).

::sigh:: I love yarn.

knittynurse said...

Good Lord! If teal or any shade of turquoise green was the fountain of youth I would live forever. I have an impressive collection of those colours in many different yarns but i have knit not one thing in that colour. Something I must remedy as soon as I finish blue socks and a purple sweater. The most recent FO ~ grays and purples Stash vs. Knit mismatch!!

Sheila said...

I tend to stash teal, purple, blue and green. Which is also what I knit most, and what I wear most.

Michelle said...

The colors I'm drawn to at this time in my life are "sea colors" – shades of blue/gray/green/teal. In the past I went through a red/pink/salmon phase. Who knows what the future will bring!

CBarney said...

I stash mostly blues & greys, but do purchase yarn for specific projects in colors the prospective recipient would like. I also purchase white, yellow and green in baby yarn to make blankets -- if I don't make them in advance, I just can't keep up with blankets for co-workers and family.

Amanda Vondrasek said...

I tend to knit with a lot of blues and neutral colors.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I usually go to blues and purples or bright colors.

amchart said...

I'd have to say blue.

UmmRania said...

I am always drawn immediately to purple yarn ALWAYS! Its like I cant help myself, however I dont knit exclusively for me, so I would say I knit the most with blue and neutral colors, but if its for me, its usually purple! What an amazing giveaway, I love the yarns.

TracyC611 said...

I love jewel colours, strong reds, turquoises and blues - but they are not always easy to wear though.

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

Blue is my weakness, when I buy at the LYS. But I also shop a lot at thrift stores, where you just take what they've got. I find that helps keep my stash balanced not just in terms of color, but also fiber and weight.

andri. said...

I think for me it's grey/cream/blue/pink :)

Brenda said...

I tend to go with blues most of the time. Blue seems to go with everything.

Rachelle said...

Shades of blue and teal are my go-to colours.

Melody said...

purple and green

Iva K. said...

I love all the colors. You just need to find the perfect pattern for each:)

Jessica Powers said...

I've amassed a good collection of red yarn, I just realized. Funnily enough, lime green is really my favourite shade and I am now on the hunt for lime green stash to cover myself in...

Lisa Viviano said...

I tend to knit shades of blue the most. I guess I'm reaching for the sky.

angelpai said...

having had a look at my stash.....I have to say I am a colour 'tart'....I seem to have a huge assortment, from neutrals...across the spectrum, I even have yellow and pink which aren't colours I wear!

Fen said...

Mostly blue and purple shades that I seem to knit with and stash all the time.

Suzanne said...

I tend to knit with purples, grays, and greens but lately I am seeing more orange and yellow popping in. I like that!

Isa said...

I have a very large tendency to buy greys from silver almost white grey to charcoal.

Robin said...

Blue, lots and lots of blue of all variations. Throw in some purple, red and random skeins of yellow and green and that's my stash.
Pink however, is not allowed in. I think I have 1 skein of pale pink to make noses on stuffed animals.

JoAnna said...

For socks, I knit with orange. Orange! But, I'll stash nearly any color if it makes me gasp.

Donna said...

Currently, my faves are in the green/gray/blue family. Love to work with the brighter colors for my grandchildren. Just plain love yarn!

Linda said...

Definitely purples...I also love magenta...but I'm trying to knit shawls in more classic colors (tans, greys, creams). But I do love my jewel tones!

Caranam said...

I've definitely been on a blue/purple kick that I can't seem to stop.

Holly Gerardi said...

I definitely tend towards blues and purples, though I'm a sucker for any heather.

Bridget said...

I'm always surprised that I have so much blue and green in my stash! It's not like those are the only colors I like, but apparently I gravitate in that direction. :-)

Victoria Williams said...

I knit with all colors, and stash all colors too.

Olivia said...

I tend to stash more greens and purples. I gravitate towards them in the store. But, ironically, they aren't the colors I seem to gravitate towards to knit with. I knit more with blues.

Marilyn a.k.a. Merry said...

I love orange but you can only have so many pairs of orange socks so I've been trying to buy colors that I can wear with work clothes - gray, brown, blue. Much less fun but practical.

Sarah said...

my stash is heavy with green & greys. love it!

October Rose said...

Thanks for the giveaway! I tend to hoard shades of teal and purple. Peacock colors!

Kelly Ramstack said...

I tend to lean toward autumn colors: rust, brown, tan, etc. I just love the color brown!

lbhill said...

I love blues. For a while, I thought it'd be a good idea to knit outside my usual color schemes, but I think I need to at least stick with colors that go with the blues I wear so much.

Kayla Shumway said...

Blue and green are my favorites, but I also have a ton of purple in my stash.

Sarah said...

I really do try not to stash much. I use a lot of blues and reds and purples for myself, earth tones for my daughter, neon brights for another daughter, browns and greens for DH. I always have a hard time deciding on a favorite color - I love them all!

soxanne said...

Last time I went through my stash I had to promise myself I wouldn't buy any more red yarn ...

Anonymous said...

LOL I tend to go in cycles where I had a ton or orange/yellow, than in another area I have shades of blue, and suddenly I find being drawn to pink/purples they seem to call to me from indie dyers

TopHat said...

I end up with a ton of pink, though I never thought of myself as a pink person... maybe I need to get over that!

Hishandmaid said...

any shade of purple!

Kari1276 said...

Bright, fucshia-ish pinks and also purples. I always mean to branch out more but always end up with the same colors.

Amanda Cleveland said...

I always buy jewel tones to stash away but the yarn colors I actually use & wear the most are black & grey.

Beth said...

In my stash I have lots of purple and pink. I am especially drawn to pink yarns, but I seldom wear pink so I end up not knitting them. Perhaps I just need to put them in big glass jars as decor! :-)

Debbie said...

I find my basket (and storage tubs) full of blues/greens/purples!

nina said...

I like the blues and blue-greens - lately I seem to be drawn to vibrant blue-greens especially, though I have yet to make anything for myself out of that colour!

florapie said...

I stash reds and greens, because they're my favourite colours. But it seems from looking at my projects that what I actually knit a lot is purple...

PenCraft said...

I lean toward blue tones. There are a fair number of neutral skeins too. Very, very few reds.

Jen said...

I once wrote a blog post about how many single skeins of worsted weight green yarn I had, because I figured I could make a hat each time I bought one. I finally did make myself a hat ... it was yellow.

twistedsistah said...

I have more blue/green variegated than anything...have yet to knit anything from it!

Carrie B said...

I seem to buy orange but can never find anything to knit that I would wear that is orange!

glongley said...

I love blue & purple and most all colors. It's hard to pick sometimes.

katrina said...

The colour that I tend to stash and never use, or not even buy in first place but drool over, is a kind of bright pinky, peachy gold. It's like sunset and dawn and I love it, but it's not a colour which would look particularly good on me, and I'm afraid that no one else would properly appreciate it. Therefore, I take it out of the stash and pet it every so often. It's one of the only yarns in my modest stash that I don't have pattern or people plans for.

Katie said...

I have an inordinate amount of teal and blue-green yarn - finished objects, on the needles, and in my stash. Love it.

Anonymous said...

I will happily knit with any color!:)

Chelsea W said...

I like earthy tones and neutrals, but there is no predominant trend in my stash. I like variety!

sparky136 said...

I seem to knit with blues , greens, and reds.

Gwenn said...

I tend to knit/crochet with a lot of rainbow and variegated yarn. I just love it!

Boston Knitter said...

I tend to stash cooler colors (blues, greens, and purples), but I'm trying to branch out. Last night I dyed some handspun, a lovely shade of orange, but I have no idea what to make with it!

MegR said...

I love love love colour, so oddly enough the most common "colour" I've discovered in my stash recently is grey! Why? I love grey, but love a bright green or blue better. Hmmmmmm...

InJuneau said...

I suspect that by number of skeins or total yardage or total weight, my stash would come out heavily blue/green/blue-green!

Amy said...

I am drawn to blues, but then I make things with them and don't like how it doesn't go with the jeans I am constantly wearing.

katherinelynn_04 said...

Mine definitely falls into the blue and purples category. No matter how I seem to try to knit something else I go back to blues.

Kristen said...

I seem to stash a lot of pink and grey, although lately I've been loving turquoise.

dclulu said...

I stash, and knit with, a ton of dark red-purples. I had no idea how much I loved this color until I started knitting!

Drae said...

Any shade of blue will jump into my hands at the yarn shop.

Hege said...

I love most colours, but I tend to buy and stash blue and pink yarn :)

Sabrina said...

I seem to have a thing for the red spectrum. Anything from pinks to deep crimson...I just love them!

Elspeth H. said...

Green and orange. Green is my favorite color, and anything that reminds me of fall foliage gets me itching to knit!

Aimee said...

Most of my yarns are usually in the pink family with a lot of peaches and browns too. Green and orange also make it in but for some reason I have a hard time buying blue.

sgbooth88 said...

I noticed a few months ago that my stash was mostly blue, so I recently have decided to branch out a little, now I have greens and reds and oranges and even some purples! Plus all my neutral colors of brown white and black lol

Liz said...

Lots of purples! And lots of greys and neutral blues!

Jadedisc on Rav said...

I stash a lot of yarn in cool colors and neutrals. You won't see a lot of red, orange or yellow in my yarn cabinets!

Marianne said...

Dark orange, alone or in combination with blues or red and yellow. My fave variegated yarns are always red-yellow-orange.

Magrit said...

Lovely Lovely Pink :)

Monita said...

Green, pink and purple seem to be my favorites, otherwise mostly neutrals like brown or grey.

Debbie said...

Yellow! It's my favorite color and goes with almost everything.

Andi said...

Pink! Something about knitting with the color pink, in any shade, takes me to my happy place. I have to say once I started knitting, I have found pleasure in knitting in all colors.

Elaine said...

I like to knit with ecru and other natural colours, but I've got quite a stash of other yarns too built up over the years and need to keep knitting away...

Rachael said...

Mine is anything grey or blue!

Enid said...

I stash, and knit, a lot of green. However, lately I've been going through a blue streak and have started pick up more blues in variegated skeins and colorways.

Anonymous said...

It varies from month to month. Which means I have a loud and multicolored stash.

I have been knitting with a lot of blues and purples lately. My heart is still always with the greens but for some reason blue has been on my mind in a way it never has before.

Lucy said...

I go for greens.

Lacemoth said...

My colors are pink and purple. Always have been. Probably always will be. Stuck in a rut...

susanmhj said...

I really tend towards corals/reds, love teal too. Most recently stashed some "dustbowl" and red and green, true to form!
Thanks V!

The Skein yarn looks gorgeous! All pretty yarns.

I really love yellow-green, grays, beige, orange-red, teal, eggplant, olive, lavender, taupe, and oatmeal are my favorites.

Various shades of maroon. All of the maroons.

Rich, gorgeous jewel tones break me down every time!

historychica said...

Much like my wardrobe, I'm usually attracted to yarns in blues and purples.

And also, like my wardrobe, I'm attempting to branch out :)

Rebecca said...

I am drawn to the blues, greens, teals and deep reds, and if I can ever finish the projects for everyone else, I can make something for myself from the stash.

Hind DP said...

I like most jewel tones, especially greens and blues

Jubbers said...

In looking through my stash, there really isn't one color that sticks out, but rather a theme: sock weight tonal yarn. I can't resist it when it is a really strong tonal with a lot of white / pale tones with the more saturated color. Also, I tend to hoard bright, cheerful colors as well as neutrals. Not too many autumn tones or super dark colors.

SherryG. said...

My goodness I am all over the place but I do have a lot of blues, greens & reds. I really need to step out of my comfort zone.

I seem to be drawn to grays, blues, purples and greens. And each January, when everything here is brown, raspberry brightens my days.

vmarty said...

Girly colours for my two little daughters: pink, purple and shades of gray, just in case.

Alicia said...

i usually knit in blues. this past year i completed an evenstar shawl and a top in basically the same colour (both purchased separately) and when i realised just how similar those two colours were, i put back that skein of random sock yarn because it was the exact same colour as the other ones were. oops =)

Maegwin said...

Looking at my stash it tends to be blues and greens which is odd because I don't have that much of those colors in my wardrobe. Maybe I am sensing the lack of these colors.

Jenifer Epkey said...

I tend to be practical and stash a lot of colors my boys will wear as I knit hats, mittens, fingerless mitts, etc. For me I like jewel tones...

Sheri Karobonik said...

For me I like to knit in rich jewel tones or appricot, I know this is a big varation. But since most of my knitting tends to be for charity in the form of selling things and having 100% of the money going to the charity, Operation Gratitude or kids in need get what ever yarn is given to me.

BTW I like the knitting you are showing off. You are very talented.

Blues, greens and gray for me though I love a just right red!

Susan said...

I am always, always drawn to highly variegated yarn and always pink!

Lindr said...

I was looking at my shawls the other day, and I seem to have a preponderance of orange/coral/sunset/brick colors. Which is odd, because if you asked me my favorite color, I'd probably choose blue or green! Time to choose my next project; this time I'll focus on 'not-orange'!

Christine Lima said...

I tend to knit with blues and purples. I would say my favorite color is red, but I think I shy away from it when picking yarn for fear of having everything I own be all the same color. Now that I think about it, I think I should knit with red more often...

Zabbers said...

Reds and purples. I even started a (basically abandoned when I started working again) project to knit one pair of red socks a month in an attempt to stash down, and because I thought it'd be fun to have a year's worth of different red socks!

Smaet said...

I'm always attracted to shades of lavender, periwinkle, aqua, and teal.

Blues, for sure! I just organized my stash by color, and I had twice as much blue as anything else!

cjrgemini said...

Usually I am knitting for other people but completed a sweater for myself in a lovely brown with flecks of other colors. The pattern was from quince and companies Knitbot essentials. I tend to like the colors from nature the best: browns from tree bark, greens from all the beautiful colors we show in the Ozark Mountains, sky blues, etc.
it would be so awesome to win this as I'm recuperating from an anterior cervical dissectotomy with fusion surgery on my neck area. In other words, the removed the ruptured discs from my neck, replaced with cadaver bones, screwed it all together with a titanium plate. I have a lovely neck brace I have to wear for the next several months and I am knitting while I recuperate. Can't lift anything heavier than a gallon of milk, no vacuuming or pushing/pulling.

kmvdvm said...

blue. i knit mostly baby gifts and it seems that i always end up with variations on blue, whether for boy or girl.

Caitlin said...

Anything blue and green, in almost any shade or combination thereof. I'm really trying hard to break that habit and experiment with pinks and purples and yellows, but it's hard. Blue is so pretty!

Sara said...

It used to be purples...now it seems to be teals...or reds...actually if the truth be told it just has to be beautiful yarn

I love knitting in variegated yarns and pinks and reds mainly. I must admit a secret desire to stash most colours though as I think they'll look amazing for lots of different projects!

Ocean blues and teals are the most frequently found yarns in my stash. There is a fair amount of pink yarn, too, due to having a six year old daughter. ( : I really love most colors, though, so I love any yarns. ( : Thank you! Stephanie (indigodogmt on Rav)

I love pinks and blues. Known to knit with purple also. If I am knitting a gift, I choose a color that suits the recipient! I also stash more than I use..

meeshelle said...

Oooooh yummy indie dyed is my favorite! For stash yarn, I usually go through stages of colour. I was on a teal kick, then it was golden honey yellows and then greys and naturals. It's funny to look at my stash and see what colour mood I was in that month! lol

Blues and greens. Green is my favorite color but it's often hard to find clothes in a "good green". So when I see an awesome skein of green, I want it!

I am not sure they are the colours I look best in, but they certainly speak to my heart: blues and teals, sometimes greens but not acid ones with too much yellow.
I also love natural sheep colours, especially the Shetland sheep greys, browns etc with their special dialect names :-)

I am notorious for only picking teal yarns, or subtle variations of that tone. I have so many teal yarns, unused, that I have actually taken to letting my boyfriend pick yarn colors out for me.

Still, I am always somewhat disappointed when the color he picks is not teal. asdjgadjgjdgj

I am not that picky for the sale yarn. I do have SABLE status, so it must be very beautiful if I buy it full price...or if I'm on vacay :)

Luv2CUSmile said...

I love neutrals and tonals... All colors really because it seems so unfair to choose just one. It all depends on who I knit/crochet for I guess. And depending on the season, the item... I am going to start keeping a journal of just that now... It seems to be a popular question.

I seem to be drawn to hand-dyed sock yarn and it fills the stash even though I much prefer to knit with a semi-solid. I also tend to buy, simply to stash, a lot of worsted wool in order to make socks, mittens, hats, etc. in the winter because that is what I get a lot of requests for.

I knit with blue the most, and I stash it the most, too. Lately I have been branching out into greens and purples, though. But BLUE is my favorite.

All the blue-greens, not to mention tweedy looking purples and reds. Looked at two drawers of summer tops and guess which color stack is the largest!
BTW , to Alice - We aren't supposed to finish our stashes before we die ! 1) It is then no longer a stash. 2)We would have to stop buying yarn!!! 3)We would bitterly disappoint our knitterly offspring who have been looking forward to that inheritance!

Green is definitely one of the favorites as is purple these days. So much yarn so little time! I love it!

I always seem to come home (or from the mailbox) with blues and greens!

I stash greens and blues and any mix of the two. I have started stashing red and orange sock yarn for my son. He loves wool socks.

Purples, blues, and yellows! But really, I just love yarn of all shapes, sizes, and colors. ;)

Blues, pinks and purples are my favourite. Althugh, looking at my stash I have quite a few green yarns, which is strange really, as I don't really like green!

I usually end up with a lot of blues and black.
