Giveaway & shop update



I have 2 skeins of Eco-friendly hand dyed yarn to giveaway to one lucky winner. The first skein is in the top picture on the right and is a deeper grey in person. It is a super wash merino/mulberry silk blend dk weight yarn. The second is in the bottom picture and is a baby alpaca/silk blend lace weight yarn. Please leave a comment to be entered and on Tuesday November 2nd my daughter will choose a lucky winner out of a hat. This contest is open to everyone worldwide.

Other exciting news is that I will be opening my Etsy shop Sweet Basil Fibre Works on November 1st and would be thrilled if you would stop by. I'm planning another giveaway there as well! Happy knitting & crocheting!

Oops! I reversed the dates above, the giveaway ends on Monday November the 1st and the shop opening is on Tuesday November the 2nd.
