Purl sez, win this yarn!

Today, Purl would like you to win this fabulous bag of Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK:


Really, she would.  It makes her happy when people get excited.  Almost as happy as she gets when you play fetch with her nasty rubber chicken.


Or with her even nastier stuffed chicken.  (Are you sensing a theme here?)


Anyway, we Loops Troops absolutely adore Baby Merino Silk DK.  Gene loved it so much, he designed a baby blanket for it.


And it's not just for baby stuff.  The merino/silk content, soft hand and sophisticated heathered colors make it ideal for scarves, shawls and sweaters, too.

So, for your chance to win a full bag of 10 skeins, post a comment telling us what you would make with the yarn.  Be sure to leave your email address or name in the comment so we can find you if you win.  You can also tell Purl how cute she is.  She can never get enough of that.  Right, Purl?

Purl is ADORABLE! My golden retriever, Puddles, used to have a rubber ball that was soooo stinky, we named it Stinky Ball. It was her favorite of course. Don't worry, Purl, your stinky chickens are safe!

Dear Purl, You are very cute. I cannot resist doggy eyes! I would love for you to choose me to win the Rowan Baby Merino Silk. I adopted an Italian Greyhound this year and I want to knit him a snood or a baby blanket, because he gets cold easily and needs a lot of cuddles. Being a pup yourself, you understand. I took a knitting class at loops this past year and am knitting like a fiend. Please pick me, Purl! I would love to get a picture with you, if I am to win your most excellent yarn. :D

I would make a cheery set of hats for my new Yorker kids to help them make it through the rest of winter! Maybe my Strudel could play with Purl sometime. Ps..I never buy yellow, as I look sick anywhere near it, but saw the gorgeous goldfish yellow in this yarn and am being brave and wanting to make something with it!

We recently moved from Tulsa to the mountains of Colorado and are freezing our buns off here! I think I would knit a luxurious cowl to keep me warm & cozy. And if there was extra, maybe even a little something for our two labrador retrievers who are still trying to decide whether or not they like the snow!

Purl, you are as precious and adorable as you are generous! I can tell by your eyes that you are not really a dog--you are a "duman" (pronounced "doo man")--part dog, part human. If I won your beautiful bag of yarn, I would make a very chic, trendy sweater dress/tunic by Bergère de France 2012. And, for you, sweet babyface, a sparkly rhinestone studded collar to match! Thank you for your fun opportunity to win such wonderful yarn!
"Wuf" you,
