Mini Skein Giveaway

This giveaway is now closed! Finding out the winners now, check back soon!

Hey all you Bee Keeper Quilter's out there! And I won't forget you Mini Mania Scarfer's. Not to mention anyone making ornaments or toys...
Anyone want to win 15 mini skeins?!

I was going through my stash and realized I have way too much yarn, and lots of it is the half skein variety. And I know all of us Bee Keeper's are always looking for new and awesome (awesome!) yarn to add to their quilts. So I thought - why not give some of it away?
I am giving away the 13 pictured plus two surprise solid minis.
Pictures left to right
First row:1-6 are Storied Yarns, 7 is one I dyed.
Second Row: 1-3 are sparkly mini skeins from Knit Picks, 4-5 are random sock yarns, self striping, and 6 is a Madeline Tosh sock yarn.
Same old rules. You can enter lots of times.
- Just leave a comment.
- Share this post then leave a comment saying you've done so.
- Follow this blog then leave a comment saying you've done so.
- Like me on Facebook, then leave a comment saying you've done so. The link to FB is above in the links section.
That's four chances!
I will leave this contest open for a while, I want any Bee Keeper or scarf maker to have a chance to see this and enter if they so desire.
So, how about Halloweenish?! The contest will close October 30, 'round about noon time est.

I will try again to make this go through for the third time.

How could anyone not want minis or more minis for their Beekeepers Quilt or other project?

Thank-you for your generosity.
