Just found your podcast and have listened to a couple - really enjoying them and definitely subscribed through iTunes :) And, I now follow Nature Conservancy on Twitter after hearing about them, checking their site and liking what they do. Thank you for that information :) And, well yes, who wouldn't want to win a sweaters worth of undyed wool! I've been wanting some - I have no desire to dye as I like the natural colours. My fingers are crossed :)

I am now following the Nature Conservancy on Facebook. Thank you for bringing this wonderful organization to me.

Vicki Lynch said...

Thanks you for making us aware of the Nature Conservancy. I wanted to know where I could find the yarn when you started describing it, but I guess I'll have to wait unless I get picked to try it sooner. The Sprig sweater is lovely. It was good to see the model's wonderful smile after hearing the story of her braces and discomfort for the previous photo shoot.

Elizabeth Trace said...

So glad the people of Patagonia have an ally like the Nature Conservancy. It will be tough, but the great plains went through the same issue during the dust bowl, and we recovered. So with a time, better management, and hard work, they will too!

The Restless Knitter said...

what an awesome giveaway! Thank you for the chance to win it. Maybe it would be suitable for the new pattern I just bought...perhaps you've heard of it. It's called Sprig ;-)

I can't wait to be able to buy this yarn: I'm a big fan of the Nature Conservancy (I'm an active member!) and I really like this idea. Buying yarn for a good cause, how can it be better (and it doesn't count as stash does it?)
