This is 400 yards of Sock weight yarn in the colourway "Prickly Pear".  80/10/10 Merino, Cashmere and Nylon.  Oh - so - soft!  The colours are beautiful.  I see a little more of the greens when I look at it then it photographed.

Wow!
That yarn is seriously beautiful!
I have never seen this coloway before..
I am in Norway, waiting in vain for some snow to appear before christmas...
We usually don´t decorate our tree before the 22th, but maybe I will start earlier this year to get the christmas spirit :)
Love your Christmas deco

What fabulous yarn! I would love to be entered in the drawing:)

Am waiting for a cool front to blow in here - we made it to over 70 today, but highs much lower are forecast for the next week. Trying to get myself in the Christmas spirit with all of this warm weather...

Oh how I love Plucky yarn! I can't believe you're being so generous as to part with this gorgeous colour! I am freezing in some very frigid temps and knitting to stay warm. Hope your holidays are happy!

Celestial said...

Very interesting colorway (but don't add me to the drawing, I'm learning that I'm not a contrast color sock knitter)

I'm cleaning house! Wouldn't you just love to come help?

(actually if you were here I'd be making you hot chocolate and making sure you're comfy in my chair by the fire =)

Absolutely beautiful yarn... my stash is a little less than exciting, so I would love to play with it! Working on a sweater, trying to keep warm during this snowy day... Thanks for such a lovely giveaway.

Hi, Renee. The yarn is a beautiful color. I am fine and getting ready to go to NJ to visit my daughters, sil and granddaughter. Baking cookies and exchanging gifts. And squeezing Morgan. Fun!

Siena said...

Oooh, I love Plucky yarn! And such a vibrant and happy colourway! I live in the north of Norway where it is completely dark and snowy now, so I am in Christmas and knitting mood. I hope you`ll have a great December!

Wow, beautiful yarn! The colors remind me of Christmas.

I'm in TN and despite the sun shining it's a cold 21 degrees outside. But I will deal with the cold please no snow. Happy Holidays, everyone!

JoAnn said...

Wow; what a preety skein of yarn! I would love to have a chance at giving it a home.

Well. It's below zero degrees here in WI, we got 11" of snow yesterday, my Christmas tree fell down last night and one of my grandmother's antique ornaments broke. I cried.

Pretty yarn would make me very happy.

asti said...

OOh, that is one gorgeous colourway ! What a lovely giveaway :)

I'm currently cooking for the girls before going to see my youngest daughters first nativity play !

Lauren said...

So nice of you to have a Plucky giveaway!

Right now, I've just finished decorating and have started the Christmas baking. Oh, and the knitting! I've got three projects left and I think that I can make it this year!

peaknits said...

I am always hoping for Plucky goodness:) Thank you for the teaser! I hope you are having a productive holiday knitting season!

I would love to give a home to such gorgeous yarn! We have been working very hard to get the house ready for Chritmas and the arrival of our daughter, hubby and our first grand-daughter of 3 mths. They will be here in only 2 sleeps! I love this time of the year!

Such beautiful yarn. I am in the deep south and it has turned very cold. brrrr! Good knitting weather! Home from work and hope to work on my Christmas knitting after dinner! Thank you for the contest chance, especially since there are no knitting stores nearby!!!!

you have very good taste Renee.

Kathy said...

Ha! How very Christmassy! :) Thank you for being so generous.

I'm doing alright, though ridiculously behind for the holidays. I'm waiting for the year when I actually get the balance of aspirations and time correct. I've narrowed my Christmas knitting list to my partner (and maybe the kids... haven't decided if teenagers will appreciate handknits at this point) and right now I'm watching Holiday in Handcuffs, a silly Hallmark Christmas movie. I am also supposed to be wrapping gifts so they can be mailed tomorrow... but as you can see I'm playing hooky on knitting blogs!

I hope that you are enjoying the holiday preparations and the very Christmassy weather.

margene said...

A very Merry December to you, too! The yarn is gorgeous and festive!

kim said...

Gorgeous yarn!

I am stressing because of a sales tax audit coming up at work. But I'm also excited to go home at night and knit, read (The Historian--pretty good so far), and be pregnant with number 2. :)

Crystal C Rutherford said...

Beautiful yarn!

I'm doing well.Steadily working on holiday gifts for my kids: two handmade Waldorf dolls and a knitted wardrobe, a pair of Fetchings for my daughter and possibly a cowl for my hubby. I'm eagerly awaiting Christmas because I know what my present from the family is: my first drop spindle!

Happy Holidays!

Sally S. said...

I'm in bitter cold Minnesota, enjoying some new snow, finishing up a work and hoping to get some Christmas gifts done before family starts arriving.

The sock yarn is lovely and sounds so soft

At Home Mommy Knits said...

Hey Renee, we are in Disneyland finishing up a ten day vacation. It has been really fun but right now I am alternating between catching up with blogs and watching road reports. Might be a little tough getting home :). Love all your decorations!!

Liz B. said...

The yarn is gorgeous! I just got home from a craft fair that was successful if I'm measuring by how many compliments I received; unfortunately, not a lot of the compliments were paid in cash! :P Thanks for the chance at your giveaway.

beautiful yarn...I found you through doodles in string. how fun that you're having a giveaway!

stitching under oaks said...

I forgot to tell you what I'm up to...I'm recovering from too many late nights...we had some extra teenagers here with us this weekend...I'm quite groggy.

Maria said...

Drool!!!!! That is gorgeous!

keri said...

Eek! Plucky! Such a fabulous giveaway gift...never tried it but always wanted to!

I'm currently hibernating in my house working way too many hours and trying to finish up my christmas shopping and handknits. Debating on whether or not the Christmas cards will get mailed on time this year! =)

I'm in France and it's darn cold here (-4°C) so enjoying all my woolen knits while others, being chic, shiver. We're supposed to get snow tonight and tomorrow (yeah) so I'll have to forget cycling for a while. I'm too afraid of the drivers here who don't know how to handle snow and continue to drive like the Le Mans 24.
I got all my Xmas knits done and sent on time. It's a first for me so I'm knitting for me right now and thinking about the Christmas foie gras.
