Handspun Americana Yarn Giveaway

The Twisted Purl is located in Conway, Arkansas. Recently, our town has received nationwide attention. Maybe a few of you watch a little show called American Idol? Kris Allen is from our hometown and he won American Idol last night. Woooohooooo!In honor of our Hometown Idol and in celebration of our Online Shop Grand Opening we are having a Handspun Yarn Giveaway...red, white, and blue just for you. This yarn is one of my most popular colorways, Americana. What better way to celebrate Kris Allen being the American Idol than with Handspun Americana. It's all American, and all free!


How to enter? Super simple! Just post a comment here on this post and you will be entered to win. I will close the giveaway on May 28th at 8:00 PM Central Time. I will use a random number generator to pick the winner.

This yarn was handspun from this hand painted roving:

Special thank you to all who voted for Kris Allen. It's reported 38 million votes came out of Arkansas on Tuesday night. Shesh! Now if we could only vote to make the Arkansas Razorbacks win all their football games next year.

Best of luck to all who enter this giveaway. This yarn is almost as "Kick Awesome" as Kris Allen. ♥


Pictures of Kris Allen were taken during his hometown performance in May 2009.
