Attention: gorgeous yarn ahead!

We are thrilled to introduce our next sponsor to you:

We were lucky enough to meet Countess Ablaze and her glorious yarns in person last October at the Plug-and-Play Pembrokeshire retreat. To say that we were blown away is an understatement! (There were many grabby hands and potentially violent staredowns over the various colorways). When we saw that Lyndsey was back at the dyepots earlier this year, we quickly got in touch to see if she would be interested in sponsoring any prizes at the after-party. She very generously sent us three skeins of yarn to share with three lucky pub-goers in September, and they arrived this week.

Breath. Taking.

 First is a skein of Viscount of Spark, 400 meters/100 grams, 75% merino/20% nylon/5% stellina, in the "Northern Lights" colorway.

Next up is Count Cashmerino High Twist in "Live Another Day", 80% merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon, 365 meters/100gr.

Finally there is my personal favorite, a skein of Tia Merino (100% superwash merino, 365 m/100 gr) in the colorway "Ice Queen".

The Countess Ablaze Etsy shop is updated on the last Friday of the month at 7pm UK time. If you miss out on an update, you can find Lyndsey and her gorgeous yarns at the Bakewell Woolgathering on the 19th and 20th of October. Online, in addition to her Etsy shop, you can find her on Ravelry and Facebook.
