On the eleventh day of sock yarn, Simply Sock yarn gave to me...
three skeins of Dream in Color yarn!
To have your chance at any three skeins of Dream in Color yarn that you like, simply answer the following question in the comments below:
Have you ever been part of a white elephant party? If so, what was one of the best/most sought after gifts that you remember from the party? And if you haven't yet, what type of gift item would consider bringing?
I go to at least one holiday white elephant party every year. According to this website, a A White Elephant Gift Exchange is a popular Christmas event where people vie to walk away with the best present. Each player brings one wrapped gift to contribute to a common pool. Players draw names to determine what order they will go in. The first player selects from the pile of gifts. The following players can choose to either pick an unwrapped gift from the pool or steal a previous player’s gift. Anyone who gets their gift stolen in this way can do the same – choose a new gift or steal from someone else. I think this would be a fun knitting group event too- everyone brings a skein (could be great, could be AWFUL) and see how it plays out in the end.
One party I attend each year, the same same gift keeps coming back again and again- a Shake Weight. It's never been opened or used, and no one really wants it. I got it the year I was pregnant with Henry and thankfully haven't gotten stuck with it since! But it's definitely the funny gift at the party. I'd love other ideas for what you've seen be big hits!
Like these pictures of the new collection from Dream in Color Classy with Cashmere? Their last collection was based on old school musicals, and this collection is entirely based on the musical Hamilton. I have these colors for you on Everlasting Sock (a durable 9 ply sock yarn), Jilly (singles for shawls and accessories), Smooshy (their tried and true sock yarn) and just this once Classy with Cashmere (a worsted weight 20% cashmere blend). I'm offering Classy with Cashmere at a holiday discount of 20% off for those of you who would like to treat yourself to something special for Christmas. Get it while you can!
Make sure to come back tomorrow for the last and biggest gift of the 12 Days!
