Finally.....A GIVEAWAY!!! Homespun yarn!!

Hi friends! Well....as is the case for me many a time, I had a hard time deciding what yarn to use for my give away, BUT!! I have decided!!
                                   I'll be giving away two skeins of my beloved pink candy-stripe.

                     
                                                 Both of the skeins are the exact same yarn.

                                             
                                  Probably somewhere in the neighborhood of 300-400 yards total.                                          

                       
         The first skein, the fluffy one, I spun first...when I was first learning to spin. The second one, which is spun tighter, I spun a few months later. Now when I look at them, I don't know what to do! I'm sure an experienced knitter would laugh and know exactly what to do with them, but I'm not that great of a knitter, so...I would love to see this go to someone who could work a little magic with it!!. It is 100% Merino wool spun worsted, more or less;) . I will do the drawing on Sun., March 31. Just leave a quick comment!!
Blessings sweet friends~~Shine

Thank you for the invite--I would love to enter your drawing. The yarn is so lovely--it must be great to know how to spin yarn. I see we must have a lot in common, so I will certainly be back to visit again...Deb

I would like to be entered in your drawing too. That's really pretty yarn. Love the colors. I think you did a good job spinning. I wonder what my first will look like?

Hi. I found your blog from the Homespun Living blog and I saw that you also live nearby( I'm in Knoxville). I would love to be entered into your drawing. Your spinning is beautiful and I, like you, dream of having sheep someday. It's not very likely since I'm happily married to a city boy who wants nothing to do with farming. Right now I'm working on him for a few backyard chickens. We'll see.... So glad to have found your blog.

Hi Shine!
I have been looking through your blog ... you know I don't blog hop to much.
I see that you and I have something in common.
I just LOVE my Ashford wheels!
I have the Traditional and the Traveler and love them both! And I see you have the Country Spinner?
I'm thinking about getting a third wheel, just not sure yet.
Anyway, LOVE your yarn and would LOVE a chance at winning ...
I think I would make a hat and fingerless gloves with it if I won.
Thanks for always leaving a nice comment on my blog, and for the chance at your giveaway.
Teri
