Anniversary Week - A bit of sunshine, Day 1

Anna from Supernatural Yarns by the talented HermioneJean on Ravelry
When a Slytherin needs a bit of support, you can always count on another Slytherin to step up and be an accomplice... I mean, lend a hand.

HermioneJean, to those of us who live in our Ravelry world, is one of those awesome Slytherin in my house who graciously donated to my blog's anniversary celebration - and she did so with such gusto!

This is "Anna" - you know, that most awesome princess from Disney's mega hit "Frozen".  She is my favorite character in the film and to know that a colorway existed in her honor just made my whole world a better place.  Look at how rich these shades of blue, black, pink, and green are - the perfect match for Anna's dress while she is trekking through the mountains to get to her sister, Elsa, and save her from herself.

This skein has a base of her Banshee Sock - 75% SW Merino/20% Nylon/5% Stellina.  It's 438 yards of 2 ply goodness that I am going to giveaway to you!!

Seriously, look at how wonderful this entire skein is - don't you just want to squish it, it's so fabulous!
In order to win an entry for this beautiful skein of yarn, all you have to do is
a Rafflecopter giveaway

This one closes on July 4, 2014 at 11:59pmET. Open to residents of the US only due to postage costs.  Winners announced on July 5th - on my anniversary!

  9. I think a cowl sized to fit my Frozen loving 5 year old, and maybe a matching hat (maybe mittens if yardage allows) for her little sister. Yep. Definitely a cowl. It'll be too perfect to go along with this "Anna hat" that she's roped me into doing. Not to mention Anna needs some more representation in this house after the Elsa sweater I'm designing.

  17. Thanks for sharing, Amy! I would have to make socks for Piper - I haven't knit any socks for her, so Frozen Anna socks would be perfect! :)
