Last Few Days To Enter

Only 3 days left to enter to win the Silver Spun Yarn and Textable Gloves Pattern.

I just made up some more of the textable gloves, but this time using self-striping yarn.

I used Knit Picks Chroma Fingering yarn in Lollipop.

One ball was plenty for the gloves. I just wound it into two balls with the same beginning color to get the matching gloves.

Don’t be left out.

Silver Spun Giveaway! ~ Win 2 Full Skeins and a Pattern ~ Over $50 Value!!

Win me...
Win me…
and me!!!
and me!!!

The fabulous folks over at Feel Good Yarn are giving me some yarn to giveaway. Two full skeins of Silver Spun in fact!

This is the perfect amount to make the Textable Gloves, so I’m throwing the pattern in with the yarn. See below on how to enter the giveaway.

In case you haven’t read my previous post about Silver Spun let me inform you quickly that this yarn is made with REAL silver woven in. According to the Feel Good Yarn Company

The silver content in SilverSpun makes it therapeutic and conductive. Silver kills a number of bacteria, including those that cause odor, has excellent thermal properties, is nontoxic and is perfect for those suffering from diabetes, arthritis and sensitive skin. Silver is also an excellent conductive agent thus allowing smartphone or tablet touch screen use while wearing gloves knit from the yarn. The silver is permanently adhered to the yarn and will not wash out.

I love this yarn, it’s soft, incredibly stretchy and very easy to work with.  Also did I mention when you make the gloves from the pattern I’m including in the giveaway, you can use your touchscreen devices because the silver is conductive? Check out the video review below to see the gloves working with my iPhone.

You can even use the leftover yarn to sew into your other gloves to make them textable as well.

The nitty gritty of what you will win.

2 full skeins (50 g/ 173 yards per skein) of LanaMundi Yarns Silver Spun that will be mailed to you. ($50 value)

1 Women’s Textable Gloves pdf crochet pattern that will be emailed to you. ($2.99 value)

Get Ready For Winter 2014 With 50% off New Pattern

Though it’s technically spring, it’s still cold in many places. And since I told everyone I was dropping everything to make something from this yarn, I can’t wait until next winter to put it up. So here it is, the pattern I made from the yarn that has actual silver in it.

Women's Textable Gloves
Women’s Textable Gloves

These ribbed gloves use the super cool Silver Spun yarn from LanaMundi. Not only do they keep your fingers toasty, but the yarn has actual silver spun right in which makes it possible to use your touchscreen devices without having to remove them. You can check out the video review below to see them in action on my phone.

The actual pattern will be great with any lightweight yarn, plus you can just add some conductive thread to the finger pads of the gloves and they will work just as well as the Silver Spun.

I’ve included three sizes to fit most women’s hands. Plus if you get the pattern now, you can get 50% off!
