Today’s giveaway comes from Jenn of Pulling at Strings. Pulling at Strings is an online store specializing in hand-dyed yarns and spinning fiber, as well as patterns and fun accessories.

Jenn’s giveaway is a braid of fiber, your choice, up to a $25 value. To enter, tell us which one you’d pick, if you won–visit her fiber selection here. I think I’d pick this art batt by Wild Hare Fiber Studio, inspired by the Lord of the Rings. I love how it gives the impression of shimmering flames, accentuated by the angelina and bamboo.

Today’s giveaway is from me, Scarlet of Huckleberry Knits. I started dyeing yarn in 2006, and earlier this year, I quit my job to dye full-time. It’s so much nicer to earn a living doing something that I enjoy!

I’m giving away a skein of my Cascara sportweight yarn. This is a blend of 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere, and 10% nylon, presented in a 4 oz skein measuring approximately 250 yards. The colorway is named Larrabee, a lively combination of turquoise, icy blues, black, and violet.
