Welcome to giveaway day #2! Up for grabs is a skein of wonderful, glorious, fantastic Madelinetosh Sock yarn in Oxblood ...I think it looks a lot more like berry sorbet than oxblood... but, what do I know?
And, because I'm sure whoever wins won't want to wait to cast-on, this giveaway comes with the winner's choice of one sock pattern from CookieA's Ravelry Shop!

I need to knit myself some socks, ma'am. It's too hot to finish knitting the sweater I started last fall, but socks speak my language. (It's the language of short attention spans.)

I knit socks all of the time and would love a chance to work with Madelinetosh. And great idea about giving away things during your birthday week!
Just saw your post on the CKU Ravelry page. Great blog!

Oooo...sock yarn! And a Pattern! I have just found my love of sock knitting and am on my third pair. :) So this is your Birthday week? When's your bday? We may share the same day! Mine was yesterday! This would make an awesome b-day gift. hehe
Sorry for the duplicate post. I didn't read the rules the first time. And if I had, I'd have realized you mentioned my birthday, the fourth of July, and so of course, I should win the prize. :-) And I've not had the chance to own Madeline Tosh before, but it looks lovely.

Enter me please those are my colors and I love knitting socks

Have been wanting to work with Madelintosh and have some patterns on the queue. Thanks for the opportunity! Count me in!
Berry sorbet sounds more appetizing if nothing else. :)

6/2/2011 03:54:55 am
Wow what a great way to celebrate a birthday by giving back, fantastic idea.
6/2/2011 04:03:40 am
Happy Birthday. I would love to win this yarn because I am new to sock knitting and want to try different kinds of sock yarn. I think you are very generous for giving away something everyday this week.
6/2/2011 04:07:03 am
What a nice color, don't care about the name :-) I love to try this yarn and make myself some beautiful socks. Happy birthday to you, I already long ago quit celebration of mine. Have a nice day!
6/2/2011 04:27:51 am
gorgeous color! Happy birthday to you! I would use the yarn to make a Monkey I think.. I have had my eye on the no purl Monkey too.. Just made a pair of Monas and had fun with them even though I flubbed a line or two..
6/2/2011 04:38:34 am
It is the perfect present to start making socks. Plus i love the color!!!
6/2/2011 04:40:10 am
I would use the yarn to knit socks - though perhaps not the CookieA pattern from the shop as what I'm coveting most in the Ravelry shop is Rhiannon and that is a knee high patterns... Maybe Pointelle from Knit. Sock. Love...

Love the colour ... reminds me of cranberries bubbling merrily away the stovetop at Christmas. Read your post on Ravelry. Thanks for the chance to try MadelineTosh out!
6/2/2011 06:02:40 am
OMG! That is gorgeous!! Man, It would look lovely as a shawl too. Man, would I love to get my hands on this!
6/2/2011 06:04:33 am
Happy B-day too! Have a "sherbert" sock on me!
6/2/2011 06:32:29 am
Thanks for a great give away! Happy Birthday to you! Have a great one. I love madeline tosh yarn and I love hand knitted socks. People think I am crazy for making them but I wear them instead of slippers. And it is Winter here now,(Australia) so it is time for socks.
6/2/2011 11:10:25 am
Oh, I love that color -- and I don't have any sock yarn in that color family! And I have never knit with that particular yarn before.
6/2/2011 02:17:28 pm
Hi, I saw your post on Rav and would love to win this awesome prize! I have just started teaching myself to knit, solely for the purpose of knitting socks. I have been crocheting for a couple of years but LOVE knitted socks
6/2/2011 05:11:45 pm
That is a truely yummy colour and I have never knit with this yarn before.
6/2/2011 07:45:02 pm
BAH! so pretty. I can't find wool like that around here, such a pretty colour too.... sigh.
6/3/2011 01:36:19 am
Beautiful yarn!!! I've never knit with Madelintosh before!
6/3/2011 03:35:11 am
What beautiful color! I've been wanting to try Madelintosh... PLUS a cookie A pattern? sounds too good to be true!
6/3/2011 04:00:45 am
My husbands birthday is 5th June, and I would love to make him some socks in that wonderful colour.
6/3/2011 06:22:48 am
That is a gorgeous color, oxblood or berry sorbet! LOL Happy Birthday!
6/3/2011 07:00:38 am
Beautiful color. Love it!
6/3/2011 08:25:29 am
I love that color of Madtosh sock! My birthday was just last week, and I received a skein in Copper Penny... I think they would look smashing together in Emily Johnson's Garden Gate stockings! Maybe you should keep the yarn for yourself and make them! :)
6/3/2011 11:16:18 pm
This would be great to start making those socks for Christmas gifts. Love your site. Happy birthday!
6/3/2011 11:33:08 pm
Beautiful yarn!!! I've never knit with Madelintosh before!

6/5/2011 12:25:40 am
What an amazing colour - so pretty! I need new socks, I hope I win!
6/5/2011 05:30:53 am
Wow! What a terrific birthday give-away. As a fellow gemini (birthday on June 8th), I wish you a most happy day! Would love to win. I've been putting off learning to do socks (is there such a thing as sock-phobia?!) and this would definitely make me do it!
6/5/2011 09:46:32 pm
I'm just finishing my first pair of socks. I finally got brave enough to try and it's great.
6/6/2011 05:34:21 am
I am TOTALLY addicted to knitting socks, it's just about the only knitting I ever do. I LURVE the color of this yarn you're giving away and I think I should win, I'm a June birthday girl!!
6/8/2011 12:19:50 am
Ooohhh my.... how beautiful... I can see myself petting it all day long...
6/8/2011 04:29:03 am
Ooh, what pretty yarn. I would love to try such fancy yarn on a gift for my mother. Happy birthday to you!
6/9/2011 10:21:59 am
Happy Belated Birthday
6/10/2011 03:35:36 am
Have never tried this yarn and would love to knit it up!!!
6/10/2011 04:42:52 am
That yarn is lovely! I'm just finishing up a Christmas Stocking and it is inspiring me to make some socks next!
6/10/2011 05:42:13 am
Goodness!! That is Glorious looking yarn!! Love me some socks altho I sometimes knit shawls/lace out of the yarn instead. But, I'll def knit some Cookie A socks to make up for the very first pair I ever knit wearing through and having to be retired.
6/10/2011 06:25:15 am
I bought an entire book of sock patterns about a year ago with the intention of diving right into it. Then I started looking at the patterns and lost my nerve to dive into a project. And, the book went back on the shelve. >.<
6/10/2011 11:00:19 am
That color is to die for! I've never done socks so this would be a first for me. Thanks for a chance to win!
6/10/2011 11:56:25 am
Happy Birthday to yooooou! What a lovely give away, I've never tried Madelinetosh yarn before but it looks positively yummy.
6/23/2011 10:03:05 am
Gorgeous colour! And I've recently rediscovered the joy of knitting socks-they're the perfect portable project :)
6/24/2011 03:45:47 am
I'd love to have this!
I confess that I've never knitted socks before but gosh! wouldn't this be the ULTIMATE in making my first pair. I love that yarn. What do you think - the BFF pair?
6/27/2011 10:01:07 am
Mmm, berry sorbet... ♥
