GIVEAWAY Cheery Spring Green Sparkles

I promised a silk giveaway, and I am *still* waiting on silk, but not only is waiting not my favourite thing in the world, I also feel that all of you yarnies have somewhat missed out so far!  So, who likes green?  :)

I love those first signs of new Spring growth and while the novelty of snow enchants me for the first few days, I'm impatient for Spring festivals and plans and joyous outdoor-ness.  I dyed this popping green merino  (with silver sparkle) especially to gift it.  One lucky person will be pulled out of a basket of names by one of my little daughters, and the rest of you will have to console yourselves with a Spring Discount code instead.

For some reason, my camera rather liked the yellow tones in this yarn, which are not really that prominent, but YES it really IS that green!  :)  And all you have to do to win it is comment here and wait until next weekend to find out if you won.  No sharing or "likes" necessary, though of course you may (if you really do).  If you feel like it, you could tell me the thing about Spring that you are most looking forwards to!

For me that's a hard one, but I would say the willow tree coming into leaf.  I am *longing* to be able to sit outside under the willow tree with a book in hand and yarn drying on the line...

  2. Well,I never win giveaways lol, but so I am not living as a defeatist, here is my comment haha. I have a HUGE list of seeds and bulbs written out in a little notebook, and not a day goes by when I don't daydream in my head of the spring planting I want to do, so that's what I am really looking forward to in spring.

  8. Well I hope I'm doing this right as I don't usually comment on blogs!!
    I can't wait for spring, roll on sunshine and eating lunch in the garden and hanging out washing and having the doors open and feeling that very first bit of spring warmth on bare skin...

  9. What a beautiful bright green! Thank you for the opportunity x

    Yep, ready for Spring now, we've had our snowfall so I look forward to Spring now too.

    Gosh so many things I look forward to seeing but probably one of the things I really look forward to is seeing the Grape Hyacinths, but those furry willow buds come a close second, and then ... oh I won't go on! Excdept maybe the seedlings that will be on the windowsills soon!

  22. oh it's beautiful! Well for me it is the first sign of spring. it is the early evening when i bath the boys and the light is dimming outside and you can hear the first of the birds chirping away in the evening light. That is the time that i first notice spring is on it's way!

  27. Beautiful as always...love the spring green. I think my favourite thing about spring are the first green buds on the trees. Or the smell of the first cut crass of the season. Hope you guys are all well x

  28. It looks just like my daffodils poking up!

  29. I love the smell of dirt and dark purple crocuses (croci?). Bright green and sparkly knitting sounds like just the thing for gray February. Thanks for the chance :-)

    My favourite thing about spring is the trees, when the buds are just beginning to unfurl and show their lovely green hue.

  32. Gorgeous verdant vibrant-ness in yarn form! I love it when the frogs and newts start to crop up in the pond again. Nothing like sunshine on frogspawn for a springy feeling :D
