Friends in Fiber Gradient Dyed roving giveaway!

I have a confession. I almost kept this roving for myself! A few weeks ago, I ordered a green version of this, and Jan and Peg being the sweet women they are, threw this one in the box for me to 'Do what I want with it". Now, the inner hoarder in me grabbed this lovely raspberry colored merino/silk, sat in the corner clutching it and hissed at anyone who walked by. But, I eventually came to realize, if everyone knew how great Friends in Fiber is, maybe I'd be able to get these gradients in every color!

We're giving away this 4 oz of merino/silk expertly dyed in a Fibonacci sequence from Friends in Fiber. To enter to win, simply visit Friends in Fiber, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week, so you'll have time to let everyone on Facebook, twitter, plurk etc know about this awesome giveaway and gain extra entries by doing so!
