Desert Garden Farms *Giveaway*



Jennifer of Desert Garden Farms has cooked up a new club for all of us! You may choose from either yarn or fiber and along with your shipment, you'll get some scrumptious and pampering hand made salves or lotions or other decadent herbal body care product and a hand sewn bag! I think this would make a fantastic gift for yourself or a loved one.
Jennifer sent in some really nice mini batts for the May box, and I hope to be offering similar ones in the phat shop soon!
Did you know, Desert Garden Farms has a Ravelry group? Show off your spun samples and get in on all the special discounts Jennifer offers!
We're giving away a delicious hank of handspun single ply yarn, spun by Jennifer herself! It's a beautiful green and brown and is quite generous. Visit Desert Garden Farms, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a name on Monday, and remember I will count your extra tweeting and plurking and such as extra entries!
Thank you so much Jennifer, dear! We look forward to your next box submissions!

What can I say - I love everything - she is one of my absolute favorites! This skein you are giving away actually resembles one I've been eyeing in her shop for a while - Dryad Handdyed bulky wool yarn. I am also very intrigued by her new clubs...I'm holding onto my pocketbook tightly. :)
