While The Boss Is Away Giveaway!

Friday, February 1st, 2013

The TNNA show is just about to be under way in beautiful Long Beach, CA. Stop by our booths to meet some of our team.  I am sitting in my office, it’s about 30 degrees out and we are having an icy, snowy mix.  There isn’t any sunshine in the forecast for days.  I see that Long Beach is looking at 72 degrees and sun for today.  Am I angry? No.  Bitter?  Well, no, but I am bitter cold.  Jealous?  Maybe, just a little.  I have decided to work through my frustrations.  It could be your lucky day in the  While The Boss is Away at TNNA Giveaway!  I have a Cleo kit to giveaway like the one in this picture.  *Color may vary

Cleo Kit!

This kit includes everything you need to create this masterpiece.

Shade Quiz!

Win 10 skeins of Encore Worsted, read on for details.

Ok, I’ll admit it; I read the 50 Shades of Grey book series.  My friends read it, my sister read it, my niece read it, my boss read it, and last but not least, my mom read it! (I’m pretty sure I won’t be accompanying her to the movies when that one comes out.)
Last week, I was chatting with a knitter looking to make a chevron blanket with various shades of grey Encore Worsted. As I searched in my computer system, I realized just how popular grey is, and that we have many, many shades of it.  So for some fun this week, I decided to give away a bag but I am going to make your work for it! Give us your best guess to the questions below.  One person, with the closest answers, will win 10 balls of Encore Worsted color 389.  Comment with your answers to our Blog ONLYFacebook and Twitter entries will not be accepted.  In the event of multiple correct comments, a winner will be chosen among them at random.  Plymouth Yarn employees, sales representatives and their immediate families are not eligible to win. Data on number of shades is collected from inventory reports.  Winner will be notified via email on August 3rd 2012.
1.    How many shades of grey yarn are active in our inventory?
2.    How many shades of red?
3.    How many black yarns are active in our system?

Have fun and happy guessing.
