Blog Raffle!

***This raffle will run through the end of April and I'll be drawing winners on MAY 1!!!***

Hi there. I'm interrupting this irregularly updated blog to bring you a contest for lots of yummy prizes!

Yarn type prizes. For yarn type folks. LIKE YOU. Yeah, you. Hi there. Did I tell you how hot you look today? Mhmmmmm.

So here's the situation. I've been invited to be a vendor at the Sock Summit in Portland, Oregon, in August. YAY! I'm super excited! This will be an incredible opportunity to get my name and company out there to more knitters and really make my dyeing business dreams come true! Dudes, this is SO BIG for me. I can't even put it into words what it means to be invited.

But I need your help. Things are very tight and getting there is going to be unbelievably hard on us financially. As in, I *can't* do it without help. I also work for a (broke as hell) state university that is threatening furloughs, which could make this impossible.

This is where the prizes come in!

Every $5 donation gets your name put into a big pot. At the end of the contest, I'll pull out names for the following prizes:

Prize #1 - One pair of socks, handknit by me for you!

Prize #2 - One skein of the Lotus Yarns Hydroponic colorway handdyed by me!

Prize #3 - 10 skeins of Noro Kureyon in color 185, generously donated by!

Prize #4 - One handsewn box bag in Amy Butler fabrics from the lovely Carrie!

Prize #5 - 10 balls of Elspeth Lavold Calm Wool (003-ashes colorway), donated by Main Street Yarns!

Prize #6 - One skein of Wollmeise in the Wilder Mohn colorway donated by the fabulous Erica! (p.s. I want to keep this REAL BAD.)

Prize #7 - 8oz. tub of whipped Shea Butter donated by Kim (who is starting her own biz venture as I type)!

Prize #8 - Blue Moon Fibers' SilkySocks in Lunasea, donated by Renee!

Prize #9 - Blue Moon Fibers Socks That Rock in Flower Power, also donated by Renee!

I'm working on a few more prizes, so keep checking back! If you'd like to raffle for something specific, please note it in the comments!

Thank you so very much for your donation. Your support means the world to me!

All donations over what I need will be divided equally and sent to my local homeless shelter and rape crisis center.
