Mad Angel Creations Yarn Giveaway!!




It's always good, to have a friend in the fiber business. Especially good, if that friend is willing to try different things! Mad Angel Creations, is your friend in the fiber biz!
You see, "Mad Angel" is a misnomer, Paula is really one of the nicest people you'll encounter on Etsy! She readily offers up useful information about her fiber and yarn goodies!

In the July box, Paula sent in some hand plied Viscose rayon that had a beautiful lustre and soft hand. I can only imagine the drape a beautifully knit scarf would have, and Pomegranate (the name of the red and green colorway) season is just around the corner!
The other blue yarn she sent in, was a gorgeous pale teal color and was made up of an interesting blend of silk, flax and polyester. Again, I would love to see a knitted swatch of this!

Paula has generously sent in large versions of both the Dusty Teal and Pomegranate Yarn for you! This is a super giveaway with one winner! Just visit Mad Angel Creations, find something that you like, and write about it in the comments section below this post. I will draw for a winner tomorrow so you had better head over there right now! Remember, I will count your plurks, tweets, facebook updates and blogposts as second entries!

Paula, not only is your shop an Ali Baba's cave of jewels, but you're a true treasure yourself!
