The Critter Ranch Waldorf Salad Giveaway!




I can't tell you how much I loove the Critter Ranch samples this month! So cute, so creative, so crafty! I am regretting now, not copying down the waldorf salad recipe! Maybe if I sweet-talk Sue, she'll email it to me :)

Speaking of Waldorf Salad, it used to be on a list of dishes I would not touch. In fact, my older sister and I had a set of rules we came up with as children visiting various family gatherings, parties and such. One of the rules I remember was any kind of salad that had a person's name in the title was inevitably icky and should not be eaten.

I recently purchased some of Sue's beautiful Llama roving and I think I may have even found an appropriate pattern to spin it for here. I'm super excited to be giving away this 2.2 oz llama fiber from The Critter Ranch! We'll be drawing later this week, so please visit The Critter Ranch, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll grant extra entries for those who tweet/facebook/blog about her shop too!

Sue, thank you so much for working on these samples this month, they were truly awesome!

The item that speaks to me most loudly - and I assure you, it has to speak way loud to stand out in the choir of voices here - is the kid mohair locks called Victorian Christmas.

PNWBookGirl said...

This one looks cool:
"Batts....Fuzzy Baby Critters...2.4 oz baby Llama brown, kid Mohair white, Cashgora kid grey super soft and fuzzy"

I've never spun cashgora and just recently have some llama that has been traded with me, but its not baby, so I bet not as soft.

I love the wide variety of different beautiful colorways. The Waldorf Salad is very lovely. Too many great choices to be able to pick just one favorite. :)
