I won a contest! And now you can win one too! Tell me your resolutions for 2009, knitting, spinning, or otherwise, to win either a braid of fiber or a skein of yarn! Sweet! You have till January 31st 2009 11.59 pm Pacific time to enter.
Here is the updated picture of the yarn I will be giving away:
100% wool yarn, 6 skeins of fingering weight. These would be some beautiful colors for colorwork! This is for those wishing to enter for knitting yarn. (100 grams light gray, 100 grams dark gray, 100 grams burgundy.) The yarn seems to be a nice basic yarn. Not cashmere-soft, but nice, and a nice colorwork option.
This is 100% merino from Freckle Face Fibers in Sunspot. (3.8 oz) The picture is from her Etsy shop, and I will update the picture when I have a moment of sun. The colors are not quite as bright and pinky as the picture would have you believe. It is very soft and if you have the Winter doldrums, it should pop you right out of them!
Also, please let me know what you think of my new microphone. Should I revert to the old one?
