So tapenade and no recipe posted? No, tapenade is how I described the colour of the yarn I hoped Steph at SixSkeins would dye for me (using organic merino silk wool, light worsted DK yarn). It is the same yarn type I used for the Shale Baby Blanket made for Baby MiH. And, well, let me tell you I love it.
The actual colour is even better than the colour I described/had in mind. The knitting fabric shows it beautifully. Can you see the subtle variegated yarn? And the yarn is also a dream to knit. And guess what? Steph can make the same colour to you if you ask her too!
And well she is so lovely that is offering a hand dyed yarn for one of my readers! Lucky you! A real shame I cannot enter my own giveaway! A skein of aran in Royal turquoise - the yarn is a blend of baby Alpaca, Merino and Bamboo. And you get 167 metres (way enough to make a vintage headband maybe?). The recommended needle size is 4.5mm/5.5mm.
So here is how the giveaway works. You can enter the giveaway up to 4 times:
1. Leave me a comment on the blog (maybe what you would be doing with the yarn) - if you are a non-reply blogger, please leave your email address
2. If you are a follower, you get a second entry (leave a separate comment)
3. Like Steph's facebook page, and come back and let me know by a separate comment
4. Share the love of the giveaway: on your blog, twitter (copy us @noaslibellule and @sixskeins) or other social network - and leave a separate comment to tell me.
The giveaway is open until Wednesday next week - ending at 5pm GMT. It is open internationally.
