Birds Nest Yarns Luxe Fiber Giveaway!
Marcus and I were at an acquaintance's home recently and I discovered that she crochets. She crochets a lot and spends a lot of time on her creations and she uses acrylic yarn. Now, I have nothing against using a particular material if that is what you really would like. Marcus and I were discussing it on the drive home- why use inexpensive mass produced materials to create with?
We came to the conclusion that perhaps it is a matter of valuating one's work and time. If I think I am making an heirloom or a great masterpiece, I will chose materials that I think are worthy for the project. It's a safe bet for me to shop at Birds Nest Yarns! I think Liz has the same mindset when she sets out dyeing... use the best materials she can find to create her art!
If you have a little time to drool over all of the things in Liz' shop, we are giving away a Puck's Love potion smaller braid of Cashmere, Angora and Merino fiber for you to try! Please visit BirdsNestYarns, find something that sings to you, and write about it in the comments section below. We will be drawing later in the week, please remember to use twitter, facebook etc to gain extra entries and let everyone else know about this masterpiece of a shop!
