It's high time to give away some bodacious fiber, don't you think?
Our friend Susie Gibbs is graciously hosting this giveaway on her blog, because she just got back from a refreshing vacation to the color-soaked southwest, and she's feeling mighty generous. I didn't get to go on that vacation, but I was born in Albuquerque, so I'm sure we can work out a connection if we put our minds to it.
What's up for grabs:
Three 4-ounce bumps of super-dooper soft alpaca roving, in three wonderful, one-of-a-kind hand dyed colorways...
Mmmm-mmm good. Our very own Farm ColorChef, Laurie, has hand dyed these soft alpaca lovelies in colors that will make you weep. Let's take a closer look, shall we?
This one's really cool - multicolored hues of red, burgundy, blue, gold and olive. One color blends into the next in a way that will produce long, subtle changes that will be spectacular knitted up.
Here's a beauty - purples, blues and violets shift and change from one to another in shades reminiscent of a distant mountain range.
And finally, a fiery combination of reds, oranges and yellows like the sun coming up over Santa Fe in August.
Not only will these rovings give your eyes a feast, but your spinning fingers will go all weak in the knees and beg for more. A little over the top? We'll just see about that.
So, what do you have to do to qualify for this wonderful prize? Leave us a comment below and tell me the best spinning tip you ever got as you were learning to make yarn - either on a spindle or a wheel. You could really help a young spinner with your shared wisdom, and you might win the fiber. Sound good? THEN - run over to Susie's blog and leave her a quick note. She will activate the Random Number Generator to determine our winner. And she'll announce the lucky winner's name on Monday.
Good luck - I really hope you win it!
