Shetland Heather-Lacy Glove kit giveaway for April 2014

Beautiful Heather !

After the dark long winter we have been through in North America we could all do with some much needed colour. The photo above is some very Beautiful heather found in the British Isles.

 I don't know about you but that colour makes me smile & my Spirit Soar !  

And here is the Shetland Heather lacy glove kit that is a Warm welcome on a fresh Spring morning !

Knit circular on 3.5mm's with all over lace stitches that add such a feminine touch to the open fingered gloves. 100% Organic Shetland wool is light & airy & Perfect for all seasons. There is something very comforting about pure organic wool yarn & Knitwear that you DO NOT get with crappy Acrylics. Crappy Acrylics are just a waste of knitting time. In no time at all knitwear looks shabby... like its been to hell & back so what do you do....put it in the garbage....more crappy land fill ! Wool on the other hand is well worth your knitting time & Healthier for you & the Environment. Garments look good for years, they last (almost) forever !
This Beautiful month of April to all Natural Organic Shetland wool Lovers & knitters I'm
choosing at Random 2 winners to knit the Shetland Heather Glove Kit.

Runs from 5th April TO 30th April
2 winners drawn at random, open to knitters world wide.

Enjoy the Spring Time !


  1. My favourite part of spring centres around sheep and their wool. It means it's time to shear my sheep and play with the wool. This is closely followed by new lambs with prospects of their fleeces... I wonder what they will produce. And longer, warmer days to spin and knit outside while the sheep graze and the lambs play. :)

  2. I like everything about spring... the green sprouts, the birds songs, the earthty smells and most of all... all the new babies lambs, it's cuteness season. :D

  3. I'm a spring baby, so it's my favorite time of year. Seeing all the brown go away and all the fresh, new life coming back gives me a jolt that is desperately needed after a long, cold winter (especially after this year).

  4. I like how the earth begins to warm and the growing starts and now that I'm a spinning I love that it's the time of year when most sheep are shorn :)

  5. In spring I do not have to wear multiple layers of clothes to stay warm.
    I love warmth .In spring no more wood heat to take care of.

  6. My favorite thing about Spring is the flowers--the hyacinths, tulips, daffodils and crocuses.

  7. Hmm, so many things to choose from... I'd go with maple syrup making, and all the tastes and smells that go with a day at the sugar shack!

  8. Flowers and green sprouts )

  9. My favorite thing is the bird songs. Only when they star to sing again after the winter, I realize just how much I missed their sounds. Thank you for the chance!

  10. after the long cold, snowy winter we have had, I think I have missed sunshine and color - I am tired of gray and white! And those colors for the giveaway are fabulous :)

  11. I, too, love hearing the birds and seeing the flowers start to emerge. But the sunshine!! I no longer have to turn on the lights in the kitchen to make dinner and I love it!

  12. Seeing my crocus and hyacinth bloom. Then I can believe it's actually Spring.

  13. My favorite thing about spring is the weather..

  14. For me, the best thing is finally getting back out into the garden -- if I can't garden, I curl up and die inside, so Spring is even more of a blessing than Winter is a hardship. Although I have houseplants to help me hang on, it's just not the same.

  15. Hearing the little spring peeper frogs, and seeing the wood ducks in the trees!! Only in spring time do I get to see the ducks in the trees!!

  16. I love all the blooms from the flowers and trees.

  17. My favorite thing about spring are the wildflowers we encounter on our wanderings through our beloved trails and parks.

  18. I love the colors in Spring after the dark winter.

  19. My favorite thing about spring time is the regeneration and renewal of our home.

  20. you are so funny lorraine and so right! wool is lasting and beautiful. the gloves are really pretty and i really love the shawl! i love wildflowers and wildlife in spring. and chocolate bunnies. ;)

  21. My favorite things about spring are all the flowers and flowering trees popping out at different times. I think what great yarn colors they would make.

  22. Definitely the crocuses-- they're the first thing to come out around here.

  23. I like all the baby birds.

    1. Forgot to say from Charlene

  24. I love the forsythia blooming in spring. In northern virginia we have plenty of forsythia bushes and every year I enjoy their yellow blooms.

  25. Daffodils. A reminder of hope for those who fight bravely against cancer.

  26. The thing I like most about spring is being able to get out with the grandchildren for walks and there are no bugs yet. I know that this is short lived but I enjoy that the most, getting outside in the fresh air and enjoying the day.
    Thanks for the opportunity in this contest would love to win.


  27. OMG, love the nail polish in the first pic! My fave thing about spring is the flowers and warm sun after a long miserable Michigan winter!

  28. What I love most about spring is that it brings hope for a warm and glorious summer :) Love that purple! That DEFINITELY gives me hope!!

Been a very busy Spring & Summer around here......Lots of lambs-96 in total alive & well. They are everywhere i look. Some days i have so much work i don't know what job to tackle first.....thank goodness  i have a very understanding husband who loves the Sheep just as much as i do. Not to mention a family who are now city folk but love to come to the country side for weekends away.....& don't mind singing for their supper ! Before long most of the lambs will be gone, they are all sold & my work schedule will be greatly reduced....roll on !

Managed to finish a few of my UFO's lately & I'm very happy they are complete so i can move onto my next ''knitting with purpose'' project, more about that in the next blog later in the year.
