A few weeks ago, LoveKnitting.com contacted me and asked if I would like to review their Bloomsbury DK yarn from The Yarn Collective. They were kind enough to send me two skeins--one I knit up into a pair of Pika Gloves for myself and the other I'm giving away to one lucky winner. Simply comment below telling me what you'd knit with one skein of this luscious yarn to be entered to win. The winner will be drawn randomly Wednesday, August 13th around noon US Eastern time. 

GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED -- WINNER IS DEBBIE

The awesomely talented Andrea of @theknitpicky on IG is hosting an "Any Hat KAL" in September! I'm already making my plans on what hat and yarn combo I'll go with. I'm also contributing a skein of yarn to give away to one lucky KAL participant. So check out Andrea's feed and be sure to tag your posts with #anyhatKAL

In related hat news: I recently completed this Buckalope Hat. It was designed by Andrea with my Bulky I yarn. This particular one I used a different bulky base I was testing. It didn't make the cut (unreliable availability issues.) It's a wool/alpaca blend and dyed with logwood. I topped it with a faux fur pompom from Knit Coast.
