I hope you all had a relaxing holiday weekend and have been able to get back into the daily grind easily (those of you not in the U.S. can feel lucky to have had a head start on work this week). While having a lovely time with family and friends outside of the city — and when I wasn’t eating ice cream or spinach dip — I made a ton of progress on my Waterlily. I did have to scale back production over the last couple of days to meet some work deadlines. That’s also why I’m launching this giveaway a tiny bit later than I’d originally intended, but hopefully it will be easier for you to participate over this upcoming (shorter) weekend.
Now that you’ve gotten to know Michelle of Berry Colorful Yarnings a little better, it’s time for me to give out the three skeins of yarn and the fiber she so generously dyed up to celebrate the launch of Indie Untangled! I’ve decided to conduct these giveaways by doing a little social media “tour,” so you will have a few different ways to win one of the skeins. I’m going to lay out the schedule for each of the giveaways in this post, so come back here on those days for all of the details on how to win.
The giveaway will start today right here on the blog. For an opportunity to win one of the self-striping skeins of Awesome Sock above, comment on this post and tell us what you would make with the yarn if you won it. Pattern links are not required, but they are definitely encouraged (you can find pattern suggestions here). You have through Sunday night (by midnight EST) to comment and be eligible to win. (Comments are moderated, so don’t worry if it doesn’t show up right away.)
*This portion of the giveaway is now closed. Congrats to the winner, alikazaam!

The Berry Colorful Yarnings Indie Blue colorway is also very similar to the Twitter blue…
Enter to win this skein of Squishy DK by following Indie Untangled on Twitter, and tweeting about what is currently on your needles. Use @indieuntangled so I can find your tweet. A photo is not required, but is definitely encouraged. It’s also not required that the yarn you’re using is from an indie dyer, but if it is, and they are on Twitter, please include their handle in your tweet. You have until midnight EST on Monday, June 2, to enter.
Tuesday, June 3
Today, we move to Pinterest.
To win the second skein of Awesome Sock, create a Pinterest board with your favorite patterns for self-striping yarn. To win the fiber, create a Pinterest board with your favorite patterns using handspun. For both, make sure to use #indieuntangled in the title of your board so I can find it!
Bonus: If you’re on Instagram, you can also enter this last part of the giveaway by following Indie Untangled and posting a photo of one of your latest FOs to win the yarn, or your latest handspun to win the fiber. Please be sure to tag @indieuntangled in your post.
You have a few days for these — create your board or post on Instagram by midnight EST Sunday, June 8 [EDIT: deadline has been extended so you have time to Pin-stagram over the weekend.] Good luck and have fun!
