Ok I’m a Clevelander. It’s a bit weird that I started this venture with a colorway our rival city.
But honestly I like Pittsburgh. It’s very similar to Cleveland in that it’s a modern city:
With a gritty industrial past:
Plus a city with this description just begs to be made into yarn:
“Hell with the lid off”
My husband was born and raised in Pittsburgh so he had a lot of opinions on this colorway. The first skein I dyed was “not bright orange enough” and the redo was “too black and red”. Finally I created something that he felt conveyed both the fire and the grit of steel production.
Also I love me some bright orange socks.
It’s available here at Destination Yarn.
Dude I just listed my first thing on Etsy ever! Exciting!
Anyways so about that contest thing....
Destination Yarn Launch Party Contest:
Prize: One skein of your choice of any of the first 5 Destination Yarn yarn postcards. To Enter: Leave a comment on this or any of the colorway posts and let me know what your favorite place is and what colors you think it would be. Or really any comment saying you want to enter will work. I’m pretty excited about this whole situation so I’m not going to be too picky about entry.
Additional ways to enter: If you are a regular commenter on this blog I’ll enter your name in twice just to thank you for reading. Also because this is a “get the word out” sortof a situation if you refer someone to this or any of the Destination Yarn posts and they mention where they came from I’ll enter your name again. Oh and if you buy a skein of yarn I’ll enter your name in again!
Other stuff: The contest will run until next Sat, June 27th. Get your comments in by midnight on Sat for them to count. Sometime during the day on Sunday (or possibly Monday) I will draw a name and pick a winner!
