I haven’t been shy about my feelings regarding Valley Yarns. I freaking LOVE their Huntington Sock Yarn. So when they agreed to join us as a Geek-A-Long benefactor I was beyond thrilled.
Before I tell you about the WEBS and what they donated, here is a quick reminder for those of you just joining the Geek-A-Long:
We’re raffling off four prizes again this year and in order to be eligible to win one of the three prizes, you must post a picture of your completed 2015 blanket to the Ravelry GAL group by January 31, 2016. The blanket must contain 24 of the 48 squares released in 2015, be joined and edged. Just like last year, the fourth prize will be raffled off for just being a member of the group. If you’re not a member, however, it isn’t too late to join and get in on the fun! You can find everything you’ll need to know about the Geek-A-Long on the FAQ page.
Huntington has been a go to yarn for me for a while. I made the Shersocks and the Cunning Socks out of it, and they’ve been some of our most popular patterns. WEBS generously donated the yarn to make a full set of Shersocks (you’ll be getting the full Kniterary pattern set in the basket) AND a $25 gift card for each basket!
WEBS (or yarn.com) is my go-to online LYS. I call it that because even though it’s an online store, I get the LYS treatment there. The selection’s amazing, the customer service is friendly and knowledgeable, and don’t even get me started on the sales.
WEBS – America’s Yarn Store is located in the picturesque Pioneer Valley of Western Massachusetts. A second-generation, family owned business, WEBS has been the destination for knitters, weavers and spinners for over 30 years.
Right now they are in the middle of their anniversary sale, which is not to be missed. Personally, I’ve been wrestling with whether or not to get myself a big ‘ol set of needles (you can’t have too many!), and now I’m thinking I had better go get them asap.
Thank you for your generous donation to the Geek-A-Long participants, WEBS! You can also find the WEBS on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Ravelry, and their website. If you’d like to see the other Geek-A-Long benefactors, you can find them here.
Pro tip: They hand out coupon codes on Twitter :D
