Some of you here in the U.S. are getting slammed by a winter storm, and I almost feel bad that it is sunny and 65 degrees here in my little mid-western town. The kids and I are decorating our house for Valentine's Day today, and because it's so sunny and mild it just doesn't feel like V-day is around the corner. Does it feel like Valentine's Day is soon where you are from?
One thing I like to do around Valentine's is treat myself to a little something I've been wanting. This Merino/Mohair lace yarn from Knitsinclass is really yummy, and It would be high on the list if I weren't giving it away to one of you lucky people! :)
Take some time out today, or tomorrow, or if you are without power on the East coast, well, we are thinking of you and this giveaway should still be active when you can surf the web again. Visit KnitsinClass studio today, and comment about an item you admire. Remember, we are awarding extra entries for those who spread this around on pinterest, facebook, twitter, google+ etc

Remember, we give extra entries to folks who go the extra mile and share this around the web on pinterest, facebook, twitter, google+ etc. Just let us know you've done it!

The first time I landed in Nunoco's shop, I wondered how I had never been there before! It's so gorgeous and the colors are just amazing! For our Harvest Festival box, Nunoco sent in a couple of different colorways in the most smooth, most amazing little batts ever! I was super impressed, and I think everyone who got to sample Candy and Lora's work was too!
