…. that this week is W Week. (Remember last week was M Week? Malabrigo? Madelinetosh?) That means instead of a regular Monday Update tonight, we’re doing a few Wollmeise updates this week, different days, different times. As usual, we’ll be sure to announce it on Facebook and Twitter and Ravelry when each batch goes up. We just added Twin to the website this afternoon. If you miss one update, there will be another. We also still have several boxes stuck somewhere en route, so if we don’t get those this week, we’ll do another update next week, too. I’ll keep you posted on that.
Of course we’ll have another regular Monday Update next week with more fun things. They’re stacking up in the inventory room and we’re having fun poking through all of the boxes. In the meantime, since it’s W week, I have a wound 950 yd. skein of Wollmeise Lace to give away. I used less than half of the 1700 yd. skein to knit (held double) a Honey Cowl for a friend. Isn’t that a pretty blue purple color? I can’t remember the name. There is one knot in the very middle of the skein. I had divided it into two equal balls to knit double, then re-wound the leftover balls into one large cake. This is perfect yardage for another Honey Cowl held double (or two Honey Cowls!), a pair of light socks, a large shawl, a scarf and mitts, or a number of other things. Just leave a comment below and I’ll draw a name at the end of the week for the winner. I know you’ll make it into something beautiful!
I love WM lace but can’t get any this week due to falling down on an earlier update and MDSW.
The cowl is beautiful and I have been meaning to try Wollemeise lace. Would love a chance for some prize yarn.
I’ve never been able to get Wollmeise lace, and only once scored some sock yarn. Even then, my favorite colors, bluish, purplish, and greenish would all get taken out of my basket before I could buy them. I would love your cake of leftover lace. Shawls are my passion.
I have never tried Wollmeise, but I would love to knit some soon!
I have yet to knit with Woolmeise. Every time I try to buy some, I am too late. I must be marvelous stuff!
Very pretty color! Looking forward to the other updates this week!
Haven’t tried Wollmeise yet. Could be my chance!
MMM yummy Wollmeise! I’m looking forward to adding moreo f it to my stash! I used my lae weight that I got in December on the 2011 advent calendar scarf. I could use some replacement stash!
I would love to try Wollmeise yarn!!
I’ve never tried Wollmeise, but I love the colors!
I’ve been reading a lot about that yarn. It would be fun to try it!
A honey cowl in Wollmeise would be a dream come true!
I’m horrible at catching the Wollmeise stock-ups, so I’m crossing my fingers on this contest.
I live in hope! Thanks for the chance to win.
I’m a Wollmeise virgin so I’d love to have your 1/2 skein. I’m sure I could find something W worthy to use it for.
Thanks for the opportunity to win some Wollmeise. I’ve never seen it in person, and I’m so curious.
Can’t resist a Wollmeise give away!
This is a lovely color of Wollmeise. I have just the pattern to go with it.
What a lovely cowl — and lovely yarn!
Honey Cowls are my favorite…still need to make myself one! Always knitting them and giving them away; but, that’s cool, they’re a great gift. You have a lucky friend!
I would love to try some WM lace!
Oh, I’d love to win this! I keep missing trying to buy some when it goes up, and have been wanting to try knitting a cowl, thanks for the tip for the perfect pattern and to double the yarn!
just catching up on your blog posts and saw this–I’m in desperate need of some stash enhancement at the moment, send it my way 🙂 lol
I’ve never knitted with Wollmeise! I’d love love love to try it!!:)
Well my timing with Wollmeise has me at something like 20 to 1 – I did luck out once – so perhaps lightning will strike again!
What a lovely gesture, to share your extra Wollmeise! It would be lovely to be the lucky one to receive such prize! Here’s hoping you… “Pick ME!!! Pick MEEEEE!!!”
Thank you for sharing your extra Wollmeise. I’d love to try lace weight yarn, so I hope I’m your pick!
Oh my-I missed your Wollmeise updates. As luck would have it, I was at knit night last night. Thanks for the give away! Purple Lacegarn Wollmeise–to die for!
W is wonderful for me. Have a great week. Oops, another w word…
I keep eyeing Wollmeise lace for a shawl pattern that I saw a lady wear at my winter retreat.
I have not seen a skein of Wollmeise that I didn’t just love.
If only it were Wollmeise week every week — ahhh!
Woot Woot for Wollmeise!!!
Love the cowl!
Now if only I can catch the update and get some WM lacegarn….
What a great reward that would be after spending a couple of days untangling a mass of yarn! It felt great to conquer that mess!
I made 8 cowls this past Christmas as gifts for my knitting group friends. None of the cowls were made with Wollmeise. Maybe this year? What a nice giveaway!
Just made my first purchase Wednesday night for the WM update. I cannot believe it shipped within 24 hours. You ladies are fast!
I would love to try Woolmeise. Winning a Loopy skein would be a fantastic way to start!
I am currently knitting a Hitchhiker with Wollmeise. Love it! My Camp Loopy Wollmeise was used for socks for a dear friend.
Pretty, pretty yarn
I would love to win some yarn!
I’m not sure which blue that is either, but you made a beautiful Honey Cowl with it!
Beautiful Honey Cowl! And thank you for sharing your yarn!
Great color! I’ve never tried Wollmeise, but would love to!
I missed the Wollmeise lace updats, so I’m hoping I’m lucky here. Your Honey Cowl is beautiful! If I’m the lucky winner, I think I’ll knit one!
Lovely color, and I’ve been thinking about making one of those lovely Honey Cowls. This would be great! Thanks for the chance!
The Honey Cowl has been on my list to knit for my sister, who lives in NH and needs nice warm things for the winter. And like most knitters, I adore the colors that the Wollmeise are dyed in. They are simply incredible. If it’s not too late, please count me in for the giveaway.

While I missed this week’s updates, I’m hoping to pounce on the next one! Thanks for offering such gorgeous yarns.
