Yarn Detectives

Today is exactly 6 months since I opened my Etsy Shop. I can't believe how quickly the time has gone. And to celebrate the occasion, there is a special offer on Etsy. 1 free pattern with every skein of yarn ordered. To get your free pattern, please enter the name of the pattern you'd like in the info box on either the Etsy check out or Paypal and I'll include a printed version of the pattern with your yarn.

And now to the promised competition. It's called 'Yarn Detective'. I'll be showing some photos of some of my yarns. You've got to tell me which yarn (ie Merino Lace, Merino Sock Yarn, Merino 4ply, Cashmere Lace etc) it is. All winners' names will be put into a hat and one winner will receive a skein of YarnAddict yarn and pattern of their choice. The competition is open until Sunday 9th December midnight UK time. I'll do the draw on Monday morning so check back then for the winner. If there are a lot of correct entries Imay draw more than one winner.

To help you all the yarns shown are currently for sale on Etsy or at least they were when I posted this competition but they may have been sold during the competition.

Are you ready to play 'Yarn Detective'? You don't have to give me the name ofthe colourway, just which type of yarn it is. Answers in 'Comments' please.

Remember you can find clues on Etsy and I've done a big Etsy updae today too. And don't forget free pattern of your choice with every skein purchased.
