Mama Judes Time Police Uniform Fiber Giveaway!


I thought MamaJudes's interpretation for the Steampunk box was wonderful! Her "Time police uniform" really captured the essence of army fatiques! What you don't see in the picture is the fabulous gears and baubles she has included in a little packet to add in to your spinning.

If you have ever eaten organic or locally grown fruit and compared it to conventionally grown stuff you can totally taste the difference (I can at least!). It's just like that when buying plant-dyed fiber! I love the earthy undertones and true-to-nature rainbow of colors that can be achieved with plant dyes! I love knitting with MamaJude's yarn on warm wooden bamboo needles with a warm cup of tea... ahh the simple things!!

We're giving away this luscious Merino/silk/bfl/mohair/glitz add-in batt away today! Just visit MamaJudes, find something you love, and come back and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those extra tweets and fb updates as extra entries! Thanks for helping spread the news about this lovely shop!

Love the colors of the Springtime at the Lake Shawl skein.

If I didn't already have several shawl skeins, I would jump in and order the Springtime at the Lake skein. Hm. It does look gorgeous. If any of you really want it, it might be good advice to hurry up and buy it ... just saying.
