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!

I loved the interview with Wooly Wormhead. I have just gotten back into knitting after being away from it for 20 years, and the first pattern I found on the internet when I started back up again was hers. I will always have a special fondness for Wooly Wormhead because of that.

Thank you for the opportunity to win her book and that wonderful yarn.
