How much yarn is that?

In Contests, Dyeing on April 13, 2007 at 4:07 pm

I’m in the mood for a contest! I can’t show you the colour of these yarns because they are on their way to a sock yarn club (no, not mine!) and only the sock clubbers get to see soooooooo I thought, hey, let’s try to guess how much yarn is in there and whoever is closest in either pounds of yarn or skeins of yarn will win a free skein of merino/nylon sock yarn in the colour of their choice! If you already know how much it is (you know who you are! LOL) then please don’t participate.

I’ll close the contest on Monday, April 16th at noon and announce the winner. Go ahead and guess in a comment!

UPDATE: Thank you everyone for playing…this was fun! I’ve announced the winners on my blog now – contest closed! Watch for more contests in the future.
