There's a treasure at the end of the weaving rainbow! Saint Patrick's Day is coming up soon so we thought we'd celebrate by having the first ever Handwoven Loomerick Challenge. We're looking for the best original, weaving-related limerick and we'll be giving out the gorgeous Giant Skein from Hand Painted Knitting Yarns seen to the left to the winner.
The Giant Skein contains twelve different yarns in the same weight but with vastly different textures. All of the yarns are hand painted together, but because of the different fibers, each yarn takes on the dyes a bit differently.
We'll also publish the winning limerick, and a selection of our other favorites in the May/June 2013 issue of Handwoven.
While the yarn giveaway is limited to U.S. residents, anyone is eligible to have their poem published. So if you live outside of the U.S., send us your poetry—you just might end up getting published!
The contest is a Facebook one, so you will need a Facebook account to enter. Click here for information on how to enter and the official contest rules. The contest ends Sunday, March 17, so enter today!
St. Patrick's Day will soon be here,
You can help spread some weaverly cheer.
Just write up a rhyme,
And submit it in time,
For a chance to win yarn that's premier!
