I’m a Fool Give-Away

April Fools’ Day is one of my least favourite days of the year.  Personally, I think a lot of the jokes aren’t that funny. Today, I want to offer something that is no joke and might make your day.

As you may or may not know, I can’t knit with wool.  It makes my throat itch, my tongue feels like it is swelling, and my eyes water.  It isn’t a pleasant experience, and I figure it is about darn time that I stop experimenting with wool yarn.  I keep trying to prove to myself that it is all in my head, only to get ill all over again.

Why should you care?  Well, I’m offering my tiny stash of wool yarn as a give-away.  It as been knit with (two of the balls haven’t been used much), but it is all in great shape and ready to be used by a knitter or crocheter who will love it.  If you’d like, I will also throw in several free patterns (not written by me) that you can use with your new yarn.  There are lots of patterns out there, so even if you are a beginner, I will be able to find something.

The yarns I’m giving away (because I am a fool for buying them), are one skein each of Berroco’s Ultra Alpaca in colour 607 Salt & Pepper (was knit into Morgan and ripped out, so now is two balls rather than one), Berroco’s Ultra Alpaca Fine in colour 1207 Salt & Pepper, and Filatura di Costa Zarina in colour 1725 bright blue.  These are lovely, lovely yarns.  The two Berroco yarns are a mixture of wool and alpaca (with some nylon in the Fine yarn, making it great for socks), and the Zarina is superwash Merino.

How can you take advantage of my foolishness and win these yarns?  Just leave a comment telling me if you like April Fools’ Day or not.  For a second entry, share with me your most or least favourite April Fools’ Day joke.  And, for a third entry, post about my giveaway on your blog.

I will draw for the winner at noon Eastern on April 5th.

And while you here, why not check out my trade page.  You’ll find it here.  I’m open to just about anything, because I’m a fool who wants to see these items go to a new home.

    I’m kind of neutral on April Fools’ Day. I could take it or leave it!

    I love the time when my sister and I decided to play a joke on my dad. We had gone to the front door and started talking loudly to our “imaginary” relatives who had dropped in for a visit. Our dad came running to the door excitedly expecting to see our relatives only to be met with our sheepish grins and giggles!

    I’m not a fan of April Fools’ Day – I’m glad it’s over.

    No time for April Fools Day. Too many pranks are hurtful or dangerous.

  7. Blu says:

    April Fools’ is just another day to me. Somehow I never seem to have pranks played on me (for which I am very grateful).
    Very pretty yarn, but since I have no idea how to knit I’ll sit this one out.

    I like April Fools’ Day once I realize it is here. I always forget and several people get me with gags before I know what hit me.

    Merry meet.
    No, I don’t particularly like April Fool’s day, although most people I know just ignore it. My least favourite “prank” was when a friend’s two boys (aged 12 and 14) hid away many of the home’s valuables (including tvs and jewelry) and left an April Fool’s note under the phone receiver, thinking she would see it when she went to call the police about being burgled. Thing was, she freaked out when she saw everything gone, and didn’t want to touch anything, so went to the neighbour’s to call the police. Family members were called, it got way out of hand by the time the boys came home from school and were horrified that she hadn’t seen their note. Long story, that’s it in a nutshell…but at least the police had a sense of humour about it all in the end.
    Love the yarn! Thanks for the giveaway. (^_^)

    I don’t like April Fool’s Day. So many pranks seem to stray over the line of fun into mild cruelty being used as a way to humiliate people.
    In our family nobody pays much attention because we’re all too busy preparing for my daughter’s birthday on the 2nd.

    This is lovely wool, thanks for the giveaway.
