It’s August! Can you believe that? We’re almost at the end of summer. So here’s a goody for your last summer days before Fall hits with its rainy reality: win two balls of yummy and super smooth KPC Yarn Novomerino Aran in the cheery colorway, Parakeet!
Novomerino yarn is made of 100% superfine merino – and it shows! The yarn is silky and soft, and feels divine against your skin.
To enter the giveaway: leave a comment below and tell me what you’ll knit with two balls of KPC Novomerino. I’ll pick a winner at random and the winner will be emailed and announced here on Friday night.
*** ETA August 27: Oh Rene! You haven’t answered your email. So, a new random winner has been chosen. Congrats to Diana K! I’ve sent you an email about shipping details and such. Moral of the story: free yarn is awesome and check your emails!
*** ETA August 22: The winner has been chosen! Congratulations Rene! I’ll be sending an email to you shortly about your shipping details. Thanks for playing, everyone!
So start imagining what delicious creations you’ll knit up with two balls of Novomerino! (And because I like to make things easy for you, each ball has 90 yards. You’re welcome).
And hey! I didn’t choose this yarn for no reason. I knit up the Single-Twist Headband using exactly two balls of Novomerino in – wouldn’t you know it – the colorway Parakeet. Ah, it all makes sense now!
Check out the free headband pattern on Skillshare. Or head over (no pun intended) here for more info on all the Skillshare classes.
Okay, knitstars, what will YOU make with two balls of KPC Yarns Novomerino?

My girl friend would love your blog and tutorial. She can’t wait to get the yarn to make toys for her friend new-born baby.
I’m new to knitting and want to create cute warm things for the upcoming fall/winter season! The Single-Twist headband suggested is great for the amount of time I wear my hair up in a bunch and keep my ears warm.
Jenifer Franklin says
I would make baby booties and baby hats.
I would love to use this yarn for some wrist warmers!
I am brazilian and since I discovered your website (two months ago) I started to knitting and I am loving it! I´ve already done two big hats! If I win the two balls of Novomerino, I would try a different kind of scarf. I love this colour! Thank you for teaching me and many others to knit!

A little jumper for my niece Lilly who was born in may, she’s such a cute chubbster!
That yarn is so. Beautiful. I have about 20 patterns in my Ravelry library that would be perfect with Aran merino… Cozy hats! Headbands! Fingerless mitts! So many possibilities!

Little slipper- socks! Beautiful.
Let me see… I think i would make the softest, most beautiful wallet ever. And an adorable key fob to match!
That yarn is such a gorgeous colour! I love the headband you made – I would probably make something similar so I could keep my ears warm but still have my hair up in the winter!
I would love to try tgis kind of yarn because haven’t tried obe before. Fun of making hats! 🙂

Oh my! What to do with such a beautiful color??!

I would love to have that yarn. The colour would make a beautiful cowl. I have several cowl patterns in mind it will be hard to choose if I win.
