Look What My Mittens Won

The yarn I won is called Dandelion yarn and is from Sweden.
My mittens are some lucky ones. They won The Color Delight Price in the easter competition I entered them in.

They were not the winner of the best easter mittens. But my mittens won the best price they could ever win.

To win a color price is even better to me - and the yarn that came in the mail from Germany, where one of the jury members Frida live, IS AMAZING.

The colors simply shines from the yarn. Complementary colors and all.

I believe my color choice has been spotted. I am thinking green apples and tomatoes.

The yarn is called Dandelion Yarn and is an organic yarn from Sweden. Soft merino and it is hand painted.

Never heard of it before and I really enjoyed receiving it. Just love it!!! Now what am I going to make in this?

That is the question. It has to be something special to show off those colors.

Thank you to Vottelauget for their extra price and for the inspiration to get on with mittens knitting.

I love those mittens and enjoyed every second knitting them.

In a ball of yarn is the potential to make to make a dream that you have come true
