Tactile Fiber Arts Drawing Giveaway



In Episode 59, you heard me talk all about the gorgeous Tactile Fiber Arts Wild Crafted yarn line. 

Well.. here it is! Pretty, right?
It's no wonder that I selected this yarn for use in my Rustling Leaves Beret pattern for Coastal Knits!



These gorgeous colorways were created using natural botanical elements gathered here in California such as plum leaves, fresh eucalyptus leaves, and horsetail.

Along with these 4 amazing skeins, you have the chance to win this signed 
copy of, Bambeanies, by Woolly Wormhead
(Woolly contributed an awesome personal knitting story to the last episode. Be sure to listen!)




To enter to win this fabulous prize, please leave a comment (including contact information) under this post. Only one comment per person please.

The winner will be announced here on October 15th, so please check back then to see if you have won!

Drawing Now Closed! Congratulations to Nuttygal, the winner!

Woo hoo! I've already cast on one Rustling Leaves beret (I'm so glad it was in the pre-order packet and I didn't have to wait!)

I used a different yarn, but I really like the original...and I have a soft spot for the colors you can get in naturally dyed yarns.

Great giveaway! Thanks (:
P.s. I'm tracytracy on rav, too.

OMGosh -- 420 comments!? Well, me too please ;). Loved Episode 59 -- I so relate to your yarn choosing dilemma's. And after listening to Wooly Wormhead talk about being a process knitter, I'm wondering if that's me too, as many of my finished projects lanquish in drawers b/c of some reason or another. But, if I win the Tactile yarn, I bet I can make something I (or someone) will wear!
Blessings,
G

I've only recently started listening and am enjoying your podcast so very much. I understand but am sad that you must take a break. So, I'll catch up on the previous podcasts, and by then perhaps you're new baby will be in school and you'll be back podcasting again... hopefully! Best wishes to you!

I love making hats, especially little hats for little people. My cousin just had a baby, so I'm just a little baby/kids-knitting crazy right now. Kids hats are so easily converted into baby hats, just go down in needle size (and possibly yarn weight too).
