Awhile back I won a contest at knitnzu.com. It was so long ago, in fact, that I don't remember what the contest was! Lisa offered the winner her choice from a number of different yarns. I gave her my list of favorites and told her to surprise me, so when the box came it was like Christmas and my birthday.

I warned Lisa at the time that the winnings wouldn't appear on the blog until after tax season. The time has come!

Yes, the yarn sat in its box until today.

There are three skeins of Lane Cervinia Cabrezza, a lovely soft woolen worsted which apparently was discontinued so long ago that even Google couldn't find it, let alone Ravelry.

Ha, ha, suckahs! I have the last three skeins in existance!

Then there were two skeins of Knit Picks Palette, a yarn I have been contemplating. I bought one skein of Jamieson's fingering weight, thinking to experiment somehow, but it was so scratchy that I lost interest. The Palette, however, is a lovely soft wool. Methinks there may be some detailed colorwork mittens in my future (someday).

What colors would go with this rich bright brown?

Last but not least was this little treasure. Light fingering weight merino/nylon. Scarf? Socks? Time will tell.

Thanks, Lisa!

    Congratulations! I’ve used Palette for mittens and really like it.

    You are so very welcome! It was the snowmelt contest… random draw. The sock yarn was the “prize”, the rest was stashbusting (actually, all of it was). I hope you can put it all to some good use.
