This is the second post in my wee Thank you! Sponsors series. Yes, it’s turned into a series – there’s one more coming! So many generous sponsors! So many amazing prizes ;)

With that in mind, I’ve extended the deadline for the Spoil Yourself Stitch Along so you all get a chance to win something! There’s still time! I’ll wrap up the stitch along at the end of the week – Sunday 4 October 2015. So, are you thinking of joining in? DO! Grab your needles (knitting, crochet, sewing or whatever) and spoil yourself!

I can’t wait to see what else you get done.

And, without further ado – meet the next fabulous sponsors of the Truly Myrtle Spoil Yourself SAL ….


Rosewood Wool has stolen my heart. They’re filling a gap in the New Zealand yarn scene with their unprocessed, quality yarn in the most serenely gorgeous colour palette and I love it.  

I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely ladies behind Rosewood Wool over the weekend and they gave me a beautiful wee pile of their 3ply Romney yarn balls. There’s 100g altogether and they coordinate wonderfully well.

You can find more Rosewood Wool in their Felt shop – and I’m told there’ll be a post-market sale any day soon :)


Kathy is also local to me. She breeds Alpacas and has recently been spinning up their super soft fibre into super soft yarn :) The natural colours of her alpaca is stunning. This package is a mixture of caramel and cream DK yarn – 200g all together!

I’m working on a new shawl pattern in Kathy’s lovely yarn and it’s delicious to knit and is knitting up beautifully :) You can find Kathy’s yarn for sale here.


Do you live in Auckland, New Zealand? This prize is just for you! The Auckland branch of Creative Fibre have kindly donated a years membership which comes with a great monthly magazine full of interesting articles and tutorials.

Creative Fibre host a variety of fantastic workshops throughout the year and excitingly their next annual festival is being held on my doorstep in April 2016 – in Pukekohe just out of Auckland. I’m getting involved and have joined the “fashion team”! You can sign up to workshops and talks on their website from 5 October. Get in quick though – I’ve had a peek at the classes and they look amazing!


Julia makes the most gorgeous pouches from recycled tweed jackets and lines them with Scottish linen. This one in the photo is mine but she’s kindly offered one to you too!

You can find Julia’s pouches in her shop – they are very sought after and get snaffled up quickly so if you like one of these – get it!


The Crochet Project launched their first gorgeous shawl book this time last year and it’s been extremely popular amongst new & experienced crocheters. It’s a collection of six one skein shawl patterns and also includes a bunch of information showing you how to design various shawl shapes yourselves. 

Joanne and Kat have very kindly donated an ebook copy of Book One to one lucky SAL winner! I think it’ll have to go to a crocheter – don’t  you?

Excitingly, Book two was just launched this weekend at the Yarndale Festival in the UK. It’s a collection of 5 two skein shawls and will be available to buy very soon – in the meantime you can sign up to their brand new mailing list to be the first to hear when and how to buy print copies and the ebook.

Abbey is a New Zealand designer creating beautiful shawl and sock patterns. She has kindly donated a copy of her Wings of a Moth shawl pattern to one lucky winner! Isn’t it gorgeous!


Aren’t we so lucky! Thank you so much to each of our wonderful sponsors!

To be in to win these great prizes, post a picture of your finished object in the Ravelry thread. Remember, the only rule is that it BE FOR YOU! Go on, spoil yourself!

I’ll be back soon with the last of our sponsors :)

Ensure you’re signed up to the Truly Myrtle Minimag to stay in touch and get discounts on new pattern releases.

We’d love to see you in the Truly Myrtle Hangout on Facebook!
