Qiviut-Queen yarn & Mill ends Giveaway for May 2013

All Natural Qiviut-Queen Yarn & mill ends lot

This months giveaway is for the lot above 275 grams in 2 & 4 ply's sweetly soft. The mill ends are blends of qiviut/merino and qiviut/angora rabbit, some little skeins of pure qiviut all from the bobbin ends that we spin almost daily. Been knitting a lot lately with the qiviut-queen. It has a delicate soft handle and makes for wonderful socks, mitts, scarves, hats, shawls and even sweaters. The yarn has plenty of twist so the socks stay perfect and intact !
Here's a Tundra Fern scarf i knit from the qiviut-queen in Raspberry colorway. To buy the Tundra fern knitting pattern go here:
And more socks....

Been working on a new Top down sweater too from the qiviut-queen but its not ready to show yet because i'm busy test knitting my Brae shawl design....knit from shetland and qiviut yarn. Got to make sure my pattern is perfect ! Sold out of the pattern and all our 100% qiviut at the Toronto knitters Frolic....was a fun day....but an exhausting day met some wonderful fibre-holic-friends !  

The next show for us is Twist....right here in quebec ! a wonderful weekend at a lovely hotel with great food, great wine and great company !
