Wow, gorgeous color, gorgeous yarn. I was just talking about Sweet Georgia Yarns last night with my knitting friends and would so love to make a sweater out Felicia's yarn and this beautiful colorway. I bought my first skein of Sweet Georgia's at Stitches this year and can't wait to start a project (once I figure out what to make;0))

I am in and here. Took awhile for me to find my place. Phewww! I would more than love to win the four skeins of Tough Sock yarn in the "Tourmaline" colorway by Sweet Georgia's yarns. Her colors are definitely very deep and that color way is my favorite and looking at the depth of color now, I fell deeply in love with the "Tourmaline" color and even more in the gemstone it so aptly represents. Thanks so very much for the chance to win.

Ever since that very first exposure to Jane Richmond's cool Mustard Scarf, she's been on my list of "oooooh, nice pattern" designers.

When I realized that there was a yarn line that recognized there was a visible difference between oxblood, raspberry, boysenberry, black plum, and blackberry ... and offered them all! ... SweetGeorgia Yarns went on my list of "oooooh, nice yarn" sources.

Do you really have to ask whether I want to win the drawing? Yes, of course, I do! Thanks for the opportunity ...
