Hi Knitters,
I have an opportunity for you to win this whopping hank (440 yards) of Dyeabolical Super Ego Yarn in the Themyscira colorway! I am so in love with this colorway that I unknowingly bought both the yarn and the roving from Rachel of Dyeabolical Yarns in her booth at the Kentucky Fiber Festival in 2011. There is something about this colorway that absolutely glows. It is so saturated and rich. I think it is difficult to capture the glow of this skein in a photo.

I recently worked both my skein of Themyscira in Sporty and spun my 4oz. roving. Rachel saw my shawl on the blog and contacted me to see if I would like to give away a hank in the same colorway, Themyscira, in her Super Ego base. I jumped at the chance! I would love for one of you to have this yarn.

Here is what you have the opportunity to win:

1 hank of Themyscira (photo above) in the Super Ego base (100% superwash wool,  440 yards/150 grams). Technically this yarn is a sport weight but it can be used as a heavy fingering to a light worsted weight. It has range. The generous hank has huge yardage so one skein could make a pair of socks or a good sized shawl.

In case you are wondering what Themyscira means, it is Wonder Woman's secret paradise island, which I love. Isn't that fun?

To refresh your memory, here is the Little Shells Shawlette I just finished in the Dyeabolical  Themyscira.

It is a sweet little shawlette with great pops of color.  I can't wait until it cools down so I can wear it. 

Now this I haven't shared yet. I recently spun up a bouncy, soft, squishy bulky weight yarn in the Themyscira colorway in Falkland Wool. It is gorgeous and I can't keep my hands off of it. I got 150 yards of squooshy, yummy double-marled yarn. I will share a little more information and my plans for this one later. You can see the rich colors pouring out of this yarn.

To win the gigantic skein of squooshy, yummy Themyscira in the Super Ego base, please leave one comment on this blog post. Please leave your rav id or email address so I can easily get in touch if you win. I will be back soon to randomly select a winner. This is a great chance to try some fantastic yarn from a talented independent dyer!

Thank you, Rachel, for your generosity.

Good luck and let the comments begin. Good weekend to you all.
best, susie
