GIVEAWAY: Sheena Ewe Punk Rocker by At Knits End Yarn!

11 Apr

You know I love Kim who is the owner and dyer of At Knits End Yarns. I talk about her and her yarn ALL THE TIME. All the time! Kim was nice enough to donate a skein of her WONDERFUL yarn called Sheena Ewe Punk Rocker!

Kim describes the yarn as:

Do you ever get a song stuck in your head? And whatever you do, it just wont go away? I woke up singing Sheena is a punk rocker and it stayed with me though my crafty group, lunch with my daughter, and I sung it over every song on the radio. So I tried exorcising it onto a skein of yarn. Sheena is done in a 463yd skein of 75%BFL 25%nylon in black, grey and lavender. A badass punk rock colorway.

Sheena looks to me to be olive, darkest of dark purples, grey, and lavender. This rockin’ color reminds me of New York City streets and of CBGB! And if you looked at the Knitspiration post from Monday, you also know it reminds me of tons of punk things!

I’m currently having the pleasure of working with Sheena to make a bat shawlette for Miss Kim. It’s been a pure joy! Well, other than the fact that I mis-calculated and ran out of yarn so I had to unravel… BUT! Other than that, it’s been a pleasure working with this gorgeous colorway!
