November Giveaway

I have finally listed my most favorite color way in the Duke silk yarn. Check out my store for this listing.

Duke silk yarn is a worsted weight silk yarn with amazing lustre and softness. It's perfect for projects that need a lot of drape like scarves and shawls. And the thickness ensures a quickly finished project. It feels luxurious against the skin and did I mention it's soft, oh so soft! Here's a post on what I made with this yarn. My husband thinks I've taken this long to list it because I secretly want to keep it all to myself, but what does he know!

So just to prove my point, let me announce this week's giveaway. Yes, it is Duke silk in another lovely color way - Pastels! I'm giving away TWO 50gm skeins to one lucky winner. What you have to do is

1. Go to my etsy store and link to (at least) one item from my store on your blog, facebook page or twitter or any other social networking site.
2. Leave a comment here with a link to wherever you have mentioned my yarn. You will be entered as many times as the number of sites you've linked my store in. So if you've mentioned my yarn on your blog and your facebook page I will enter your name twice in the draw.


1. Leave a comment here telling me which is your favorite yarn from my store.

And that's it! One lucky winner (picked by a random number generator) will win these exact skeins below. Last date for entry is Nov 27th 2011 (extended from Nov 20th), Sunday. Winner will be picked the next day. 

LAST DATE IS TODAY NOV 20th 2011 (moved due to a family emergency). My store will be closed but I will keep you posted on this blog.

Happy Crafting!

And the winner is....

The winner of the giveaway is Lorraine! Congratulations Lorraine, I will contact you over email to find out find out what color you want and your mailing address.

Thank you every one for participating! I'm having another giveaway this Thursday 11/3/11 so you have another chance at winning a skein of another silky yarn from my store. And while I'm working out the details of the giveaway in my head I decided to give something for my hands to do. A neck warmer from blue recycled sari silk yarn. Only after I cast on did I realize how hard it is to get a really good picture of the blue yarn with the shimmer and the fuzz. I some how seem to be able to only get one of them accurately, the blue, the shimmer or the fuzz. Any ideas anyone on how to get a good picture?

Here are a couple of pictures which don't do justice at all to how glorious it actually looks.

This neck warmer/cowl is knit flat in plain stockinette stich to do justice to the shimmery fuzz. And I think I will add pretty buttons for an extra dash of style.

Don't forget, new giveaway on Thrusday, Nov 3rd!

New worsted weight silk yarn

Lots of lovely luscious worsted weight duke silk yarn has arrived. It's my most favorite yarn in the entire world. I'll soon be listing this lovely yarn on my etsy store. But before I do I want to share this scarf I knit with it. It is the silkiest yarn I've knit with and oh so soft. And because it is worsted weight, it knits up really fast. I wanted to keep going on an on with this scarf. Decided to make many scarves instead!

Coming soon a giveaway of this yarn as soon as I'm done listing it! I love giveaways!

About Me

I'm a software engineer who used to knit and crochet in my free time. Soon it became a passion and sitting behind a desk did not quite do it for me. And after a year of laborious soul searching this store was born. A little online store that deals in exotic and luxurious yarns from India. I love silk!
