Hippie Penguin Fiber Giveaway!



I think I'm a Hippie Penguin. If you'll remember in January's video, Marcus said you have to be a Hippie to appreciate Hilary's work. If that's the case, then I must be a Hippie! And... with the weather like it is here, I feel like a penguin too lol!

I want to let everyone know that Hilary has switched her shop over to artfire and is loving it! Check out all her luscious yarns! I swear, I don't know what gets my little fibery heart a flutterin more - beautiful batts like the Chinese New Year batts she has, or the gorgeous sock yarns!

We're also giving away this superwash merino! Just visit Hippie Penguin today, find something you love, and come back and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, please make sure you FB and twitter!
