A Little Bird Told Me …

…. 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!

  1. The cowl is beautiful and I have been meaning to try Wollemeise lace. Would love a chance for some prize yarn.

  2. 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.

  3. I have yet to knit with Woolmeise. Every time I try to buy some, I am too late. I must be marvelous stuff!

  4. 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!

  5. I’m horrible at catching the Wollmeise stock-ups, so I’m crossing my fingers on this contest.

  6. Thanks for the opportunity to win some Wollmeise. I’ve never seen it in person, and I’m so curious.

  7. 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!

  8. 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!

  9. 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

  10. Well my timing with Wollmeise has me at something like 20 to 1 – I did luck out once – so perhaps lightning will strike again!

  11. 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!!!”

  12. Thank you for sharing your extra Wollmeise. I’d love to try lace weight yarn, so I hope I’m your pick!

  13. 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!

  14. 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!

  15. 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!

  16. Just made my first purchase Wednesday night for the WM update. I cannot believe it shipped within 24 hours. You ladies are fast!

  17. I am currently knitting a Hitchhiker with Wollmeise. Love it! My Camp Loopy Wollmeise was used for socks for a dear friend.

  18. 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!

  19. Lovely color, and I’ve been thinking about making one of those lovely Honey Cowls. This would be great! Thanks for the chance!

  20. 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.

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