Custom Sock Yarn Giveaway!



With spring right around the corner it's time to celebrate! For the remainder of March I will be hosting a sock yarn give away! Each entry will give you a chance to win a custom dyed sock yarn either in a color combination you create or using one of my existing colorway (some existing colorways are one of a kind). The yarn will be a superwash merino nylon blend and will contain about 462 yards of yarny goodness. The giveaway will begin on the 15th of March and go till the 30th of March. There are some examples of my already existing colorways and if you'd like your own custom color the chart below can help you create you special yarn. Remember the more you enter the more likely you will win this lovely yarn. Once the winner has been chosen I'll make an update post on the winner and send along an email congratulation you and to work out the yarn details. Use the Rafflecopter below to enter yourself into the giveaway each gives a little guide to what to do. Good luck to everyone and happy crafting from Tails&Snouts :)

  13. Your post doesn't actually mention how to enter, although it does have the Facebook counter. Do you have to enter via Facebook, or can one enter using the comment section of your blog as well? I hope the later is the case because not everyone is on Facebook. Your yarn colourways are lovely and it's an awesome contest. Thank you for such a cool prize.
