November is here and it’s time to start on your holiday crafting, if you haven’t already! I have just the thing for you! I’m giving away $100 worth of yarn, a pattern kit, and an adorable project bag that’s perfect for on-the-go crafting.
What’s included in this giveaway you might ask? Let me tell you about all of this luscious yarn.
a.) Destinations Unknown colorway on a local wool base of 70% Mohair from Minnesota and 30% Merino wool from South Dakota. It was inspired by an empty set of railroad tracks on a fall day.
b.) Starburst colorway on a sparkling fingering weight yarn base of superwash merino & nylon. The vibrant red and yellow, with silver sparkle, could work up into a stunning shawl or scarg, or there’s even the perfect about for a pair of socks!
c.) Oregon Coast Twilight colorway on soft wool/angora blend. I’m using this colorway for a pair of fair isle mittens right now! It has so many possibilites!
d.) Broken Gifts of the Sea colorway on an INCREDIBLY SOFT baby alpaca/acrylic yarn base. The soft purples and mauve would make a great cowl or anything next to the skin.
e.) Misty Valley colorway on 100% worsted weight silk! This color just shimmers! It is the last skein I have of this color and it will not be repeated. It is a great one of a kind skein!
Also included is this really cute small project bag with a butterfly print. This project bag has a grommet in the front that makes it easy to pull the yarn through; your yarn won’t get caught in zippers! It is lined on the inside with a pink butterfly print and has a wrist strap for easy portability. This bag is big enough to hold two-three skeins of unwound yarn in, or two small to medium size skeins once wound. It’s the perfect bag for socks, cowl, gloves/mittens projects. This project bag was generously donated from Corrina at Corrina’s Cutie Creations, you can find more of her items or place a custom order here.
An added bonus is this really pretty Turning Leaves hat kit! This kit includes the pattern and a 200 yard skein of Minnesota Amish wool dyed in my Japanese Maple colorway. The colorway is a tonal blend of red and orange. The hat has a leaf and cable motif around the band. It’s perfect for fall and bright and cheerful for those winter days. This is a quick knit (I knit mine in a weekend) for an advanced beginner.
Winner will be drawn at random on November 22nd and the giveaway will be shipped out within 24 hours of making contact with the winner.

Oh, oh, oh … please, please, please let me win! I love making cowls this time of year for Christmas presents. They’re quick (relatively speaking) and everyone loves them.
Emily S. says
I love making scarves and cowls.
This package is beautiful! Thanks for the giveaway!
Righr now I’m creating small shawls and wraps in gradients. I’m loving the color changes from on to the next. It’s soothing and fascinating all at the same time.

I love to knit all the things! Especially if there are cables involved. Lately, I have been in a hat and fingerless mitten phase, but also a huge blanket is in the works.
I love making mittens!
Jennifer Freeman says
I love to create a variety of things. I’m working on a couple of shawls right now. But I think I do things backwards… I tend to buy yarn and hunt for the perfect pattern to use for it, rather than hunt for yarn to use with a pattern. The majority of things I make are gifts. Hats are high up there on my list of favorite though.
Finishing up crocheting a couple of shawls with your yarn and going to move over to scarfs and hats for gifts. Will also try to squeeze in a couple of blankets!
I love to make scarfs. I know it’s kind of a lame project, but I have been making dozens of them quick knit style to donate to the local homeless shelter. I figure, I get the stress relief of knitting/crocheting and someone gets a free hand made item to help get them through these cold winters!
Shannon Meier says
I’m still quite a newbie to knitting but I really love your yarn. I’ve been working on perfecting my hats and scarves. Would like to start working on some gloves and booties/socks!
Oh heavens, please let me win! I am reorganizing my time and days/nights to take more down time. My next project will be a pair of socks. I would LOVE to make a cowl for my mom as I feel she’d absolutely love it to take the chill off her bones this time of year! 🙂
Tanya McLain says
Love making baby blankets and hats! Would love to be able to try your yarn!!
Angelica Landry says
I’ve been back to knitting and love making different scarf designs. Something about a knitted scarf makes me feel so happy.
I’m a crocheter, not a knitter, and I love to crochet hats and scarves, especially baby hats! I make blankets pretty often, too, but I prefer hats – they’re much more quickly gratifying. 🙂
My favourite projects have been mostly socks, but lately I’ve been branching out a bit into mittens and cowls.
Lori Forshee-Donnay says
I have been knitting a lot of lace shawls and scarves using lace, fingering and sock weight yarns. With all the great colors from Alainn Yarns, it’s hard to decide what to give away and what to keep for myself! Knitting Bliss!
Laura R. says
I always have a lot of fun making hats.
Judy Black says
I love knitting almost anything, but I think that knitting toys is my favorite. My kids have a collection of knitted dinosaurs 🙂
Rebecca Shelton says
I actually don’t make any projects myself but I love buying yarn for those of my friends who knit and crochet. You make beautiful yarn. 🙂 if I want this would probably be given to one of my crafty friends! ? love your yarn
Amber-Dee Claussen says
I just started to learn how to knit and crochet. I am hooked. I even got my 12 year old to do it with me. It gives us bonding time when my twins are sleeping. Right now we are making scarfs. If we win I know that we would have so much fun with your beautiful yarn.
I love making infinity scarves and prayer shawls/wraps right now. I have been known to crochet up a baby blanket or 2. I bounce back and forth between knitting and crocheting (when my carpal tunnel hand lets me), because I love different projects in each. So, I haven’t mastered either craft because I can’t stick with just one! 🙂
Steph Bollman says
I like quick projects. I get easily distracted with large projects 🙂
I love to crocheting afghans, cowls, shawls…….I’ll tackle any project! If I cant take yarn, im not going!
I enjoy knitting or crocheting shawls, wraps, cowls, beanies and fingerless gloves. I prefer simple designs that show the beauty of yarn. Love to work with cashmere, silk, fine merino wool and baby alpaca. Thank you so much for a chance to win your gorgeous hand dyed yarn!
I love making afghans!
Toni Soleau says

Stephanie Showalter says
