Elliebelly Knit Along Announcement & Elliebelly Give Away (Merlin Merino)

We are closing in on the start of the first ever Elliebelly knit along, which will begin on Saturday, August 13.

If you haven't already, pick out a pattern!  This is a free style knit along — you knit the pattern of your choice using any Elliebelly yarn.  Along the way, we'll have fun, prizes, and knitting support.  I'm looking forward to featuring everyone's knitting on the blog so we can all see each other's works in progress.  What a great way to get some late-summer-anticipating-fall-knitting started!

Still wishing you had some Elliebelly in your stash?  Here's a bit to help out.  A quick giveaway to give faithful blog readers a quick chance.  This is two skeins of Elliebelly's Classic Merlin Merino in "Fire Dragon."  Merlin is a 3-ply merino and there are about 560 yards in the 8 ounces up for grabs here.  Post in the comments, telling me what you will use this yarn to knit in the knit along and I'll pick a winner Sunday night, so get your posts in quickly!

  1. My sister is due in December and I’ve been knitting a little of this’n that for her so far. I think I’d knit the Offset Wraplan with this GORGEOUS yarn of yours – and I’d knit a matching hat too.
    Thanks for the chance at some seriously beautiful yarn.

  2. That is some pretty awesome yarn! Love the colors! I would knit some amazing wash cloths! Thats the only thing I can knit right now! LOL! Im a beginner! Loving it though! Really enjoying it! So pick me!

  3. My very first pair of longies for my oldest son were knit with your merlin merino in your Patriot colorway and I just loved the drape and look of the merlin merino….and thus a long love affair with hand-dyed wool yarn began…..
    I would love to try this pattern for myself http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/abalone-4 (I am petit with a short torso so there should be enough yardage)
    But realistically I find it hard to squeeze in projects for me. Its getting close to fall and I have no longies for my little one yet. I would love to make a pair of overalls. I have been dying to try this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/silly-lil-linen-stitch-overalls
    or maybe this: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/design-c—cardigans-and-jacket
    I don’t think you could go wrong with this yarn, its gorgeous!

  4. A three-fold plan:
    1) some wanton yarn fondling of my first Elliebelly acquisition
    2) once the yarn has spoken, I’m thinking this for my niece: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bloom-9
    3) with the matching doll dress for my son’s doll, who has been in a state of semi-undress for over a year and would probably appreciate a little yarny modesty

  5. gorgeous yarn. Ive been searching for the perfect yarn for a Far Away So Close shawl for one of my closest friends who lost her toddler to a drowning accident. I think this would be lovely in that pattern.

  6. I would love to make a cabled vest with this for my son! If I had leftovers mittens for myself would be in order, also. 🙂
