February Giveaway at KnitHeartStrings

Celebrating Valentines, the February prize  at KnitHeartStrings is Heart’s Desire yarn and bead pack.

Heart’s Desire Special Edition Prize

No other month of the year says “pink” to me as much as February. How about you? So, for the February giveaway, I’ve put together a special edition kit of yarn and beads for some lucky winner to play with and create whatever your heart desires.


This prize includes yarn and beads to play with in whatever way you want:

  • 2 skeins of  yarn, each in a different, yet compatible colorway
  • beads in contrast color for bold design accents
  • beads for sparkly tone-on-tone accents

Each skein is 2 oz (57 g) /  215 yards of Lorna’s Lace Shepherd Sock 4-ply fingering weight 80% superwash wool and 20% nylon. 4 oz (114 g) / 430 yards total.

The colorway on the left is called “Girly Stripe”; the one on the right is “Tickled Pink”.

This yarn is luscious-feeling, yet sturdy. There is plenty enough yarn to use for separate 1-skein projects such as scarves, hats/berets, etc. Or use together for one-of-kind, serendipitous color play.

The glass seed beads are high quality Miyuki size 6/0 (4 mm diameter) in 2 colors of 10 g (approx 120 beads) each: silver-lined violet and silver-lined crystal. A total of 20 g (approx 240 beads).

If you need inspiration or guidance on using beads, there are lots of ideas in lessons we’ve had for  KAL’s at KnitHeartStrings. A listing of all previous KAL’s and the supporting articles is here.

Congratulations go to Pat M, winner of the February Prize Drawing. Thanks to everyone who entered.Pat wrote; “I am tickled. One of my first yarn-loves was the Lorna’s Lace line. I have several pairs of socks that I’ve knitted from LL’s Shepherd Sock. Also, I’m enjoying the St. Paddy’s Day cozy. I’d forgotten how much pleasure I derive from working with beads and yarn together. You are feeding my addiction.

Thank you very much. This is the proverbial icing on the inspiration cake that you serve to us regularly!
