Counting Sheep Farm Sock Giveaway!


Another small farm, I feel good about spending my money on!! Counting Sheep farm is run by Rachel of My8kidsmom fame. She dyes all the gorgeous yarns and fibers in the shop, as well as takes care of the farm animals, all when she isn't taking care of all of her children!!
I've said it before, she's a superwoman!

We're giving away this sock set today! I really like getting two smaller skeins if I'm going to do socks- it's easier to wind them for two at a time knitting!!

Anywho, please visit Counting Sheep Farm today, find something you love, and come back over here and let us know about it! We love to know what you think! Please remember to post on Facebook, twitter or your own blog for extra entries!
