Moonlight and Laughter Merino Giveaway!


Moonlight and Laughter has to be in my top 5 indie dyers list! I love Marilla as a person, and her dyeing skills are awesome! There are a few colorways I have seen Marilla do, one of which she usually calls "Marilla's Garden" it's an amazing mixture of plum, pumpkin, and asparagus colors- such a perfect fall colorway!

I'm seeing tons of cool blue in Moonlight and Laughter now- would be beautiful and refreshing to spin during TDF!

We're giving away this 4 oz Merino braid called "Blue in Green" it's so soft and pretty! Just visit Moonlight and Laughter today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, so be sure and twitter/facebook/plurk for extra entries!

I tell you what I really like is how the shop is arranged by color...it really draws me to all of the different colorways. If I had to choose an item....well...it would be one of the blues...perhaps the Blue Skies BFL...but ask me again tomorrow...i'll have changed my mind.
