Shibui Knits Lunar Giveaway!

March 29, 2017   /   byJen  / Categories :  Feeds

If you’re a knitter, you may have seen the Shibui Knits launch of their newest yarn, Lunar, yesterday, and if not, well here’s your intro! A few posts back I shared my Martine Pullover which was knit in Shibui Rain, and casting on for that back in July of last year was the beginning of my Shibui love. One really cool thing about Shibui is that create their yarns with blending in mind, meaning they pair extremely well with each other to create interesting textures you might not be able to achieve otherwise. Lunar is a blend of 40% mulberry silk and 60% extra fine merino wool meaning it has an elegant drape, soft hand, and beautiful sheen. I know because I’ve held it in my hands!

Of course what yarn launch is complete without new patterns! I’m personally really excited about Getty, Crete, and Siena. The Spring ’17 lookbook is full of gorgeous wardrobe builders so you’ll definitely want to scope that out! Shibui kindly provided me with the yarn for my own Getty so you’ll be seeing that pop up soon on my Instagram account.

In the interest of wardrobe building we’ve teamed up with Shibui to give away 2 kits for their Crete scarf (perfect for beginners and pros alike) containing the both the pattern and the required 1 skein of Lunar and 3 skeins of Twig to make your own! We’re imagining this timeless scarf paired with the Willow Tank or Farrow Dress, so we’re also throwing in a $25 gift card to our shop along with each kit. You have two chances to enter, we’re giving away a Crete Kit in Graphite + Grainline gift card (shown above) here on the blog as well as a Crete Kit in Ash + a $25 Grainline gift card over on our Grainline Studio Instagram account.

To enter on the blog, leave us a comment below answering the following question and make sure that you leave your email address in the appropriate field when commenting so that we can contact you! I’ll draw the two winners (here and Instagram) on Tuesday April 4th at 10AM CST.

As I’ve been sharing more of my knitting I’m so interested, are you strictly a sewer, a knitter, or do you do both? If you partake in both activities, do you plan your knitting and sewing to coordinate outfit wise?


Please note: Shibui Knits has kindly provided the yarn and patterns for this giveaway. All opinions expressed are my own. Entries valid for US addresses only, one entry per person allowed on each prize, only one prize per person. Employees and family members of Grainline Studio and Shibui are not eligible to enter.

Donut Dress

This fun little dress is (another) Safari Raglan, which is a pattern I am pretty obsessed with at the moment for sewing up quick little dresses and shirts for edison. If it looks familiar you’re pretty spot on, my first ever safari raglan was made up in the same main fabric, hehe. I just don’t really have many knits in my stash that are fun and not like… this ugly blue and this weird purple, and a lot of my sewing is spur of the moment with whatever I have in my stash.
