Giveaway Time !!

Alrighty, now that the news of my pending grandmotherhood has subsided a wee bit, I've put one more phone interview behind me, and the laundry is caught up, it's time for a GIVEAWAY!

To be entered to win either of today's items here are the easy-peasy rules:

1.  Leave a comment letting me know whether you're a new reader or an old-timer.
2.  Leave a comment letting me know you've posted a link on your blog to my giveaway.

That's it.  Leave your comment(s) on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Friday, January 7th.  I'll use the random number generator to select TWO WINNERS!  What will you win?  Read on......


I'm offering up a Michigan made yarn giveaway.  First up is a skein of Marr Haven Merino/Rambouillet Wool in a fabulous shade of perky blue and white.

You can use it to make this great pair of fingerless mitts -- or any other hat, mittens, etc., that calls for 200 yards of worsted weight yarn.

The second giveaway item is the yummy skein of Stonehedge Fiber Mill's 'Almost Handspun' Wool/Alpaca in a natural shade:

You could use this oh-so-soft yarn to make this hat.

Either way, you've got a great yarn that supports the local economy and boy, don't we need it!  Three interviews down, one more to go this week....so far!

ETA -- 1/7, OVER NOW, SORRY!

Hey, I really like those Trenza Mitts. They should have been a contender for our KAL, don't you think? Oh well. So many patterns, so little time. . .
