Paying it Forward

So, a few weeks ago I received a lovely skein of yarn from Karen, aka LaCabeza Grande. You can find her blog over here. It's very good. I suggest you add it to your Google reader. :)

Anyway, Karen was so nice to send me yarn as part of her "I'm sending yarn to a random commenter giveaway." Let's take a look at what I got now shall we?

Ah, a lovely skein of Fearless Fibers yarn. I love this stuff. The color is so pretty and the yarn is so squooshy and it just makes me want to squee.

So, I thought, why not give someone else that same squee-like feeling when random yarn shows up at his or her door.

Here is what is up for grabs - a custom dyed skein of yarn!! I pretty much dye sock weight yarn these days, but if there is something else you would like and you win, we can talk about it. :)

All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog post between now and 04/01/10 at 5pm central time and you will be entered into a random drawing for a custom dyed skein of yarn. I will enter everyone who comments between now and then. If you win, I will contact you to discuss what colors and type of yarn would make your day. So, please leave me a way to contact you (Rav name, email address, blog link, whatevs).

And, if you are unsure if you will like what I dye, take a peek at my etsy shop to see what I do!

Good luck and happy knitting!

    whee! What beautiful yarn! Normally colors are subdued in pictures and brighter when I see them in person, but that yarn still looks rich and yummy. What a cool giveaway idea! :-)
