Is winter almost over?

Only the Groundhog knows for sure!  But just in case it's not, how about a little yarny giveaway?

I was doing some cleaning out and organizing today, and I came across this yarn:

Three skeins of Lana Grossa Gnocchi, in varying states of disrepair due to languishing in my stash box for the last two years.

I ordered this yarn accidentally - I thought what I was getting was going to be more like the Mondial Frivola I had previously used and loved.  And they are very similar, but the pom poms on this one are smaller and more, well - gnocchi shaped than the ones on Frivola.  I was unable to overcome my disappointment.

But my loss can be your gain!  If you'd like this yarn, just leave a comment on this post saying so.  On Friday (the day after Groundhog Day, so we'll know for sure!) I'll run the numbers through and post the winner.  So let's leave it open until noon on Friday, Feb. 3,  U.S. Central Time.  I'll send this anywhere in the world:  I'd like it to have a loving home!


  1. I am still waiting for winter to arrive!
    The yarn is very pretty and would love a chance.

  2. Thanks for kicking it off, Tracey!

  3. I have no idea what I would do with this but I do love gnocchi. :)
