Carly Original *Giveaway*



It's November!! Can you believe it? If you're planning on a handmade holiday season, you're probably starting to freak out a little bit, like I am! I have so many folks on my list, I think it's nearing the time when I get ruthless and only the very deserving get hand knits!

Fiber artist, Carly Brown from Carly Original understands what I'm talking about! She's marked lots of yarns and fibers in her shop down by 50%!!! That means you can go snatch some up for gifts and for yourself ;)

We're giving away this beautiful "Pirate" handspun yarn (yes, the full sized version of her October samples!) today. Just visit Carly Original, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. As always, we'll count your tweets, plurks, facebook updates and Ravelry posts as extra entries! Just let us know you did it, ok?

Carly, you know I love your shop! *grin*

I simply cannot choose among the handspuns. Cinderella's Dress, Sea Urchin, Don't Pick The Flowers, Allure Of The Enchantress, & Hiding In The Forest Again have all got me drooling embarrassingly.
