If It's Tuesday It Must Be Time For A Giveaway!

While I am always inclined to agree with this there are exceptions to the rule. Sometimes things take us to a place that makes us happy and productive . In my case as I have said before all things fiber do that for me. As do baby goats but that is another post.

I have had fiber sheep at several times in my livestock/spinning fiber art life but after the last flock left and years later after I had either used up or gifted others with all that Romney goodness I decided at this stage of my life  it may be prudent to let others do the production and I can go to Etsy and just drool and push a button and partake in their talents and hard work . It also enabled me to a wider variety of product with many breeds to choose from and some bling man made on occasion. It also gave me another opportunity to support small family farms. Which I have been known to become wickedly opinionated about at times.

So while cruising Etsy one day I tripped over a farm girl named Janet Garman at Timber Creek Farm. An enthusiastic supporter of and educated in Ag. You can find her blog on the sidebar in blogs I follow or just click on this https://timbercreekfarmer.com/   And I ordered some skeins from her.

I made two pair of fingerless mitts one for myself and one for a dear friend who happens to be one of my go to veterinarians. They are soft, warm and yummy. Guaranteed to make you hands smile on 28 degree mornings like we had today. I also wove my hubby a scarf from a Romney Merino blend which I haven't been able to get a photo of yet . And I love her logo and all the cuteness she uses to make you remember her
 A postcard photo of some of the family happily munching away.

 As if all she has done and plans to do isn't enough she is also a published author and has articles in the latest issue of  one of my favorite publications Countryside magazine's.

 I want to take this opportunity to giveaway two Timber Creek T-shirts today. Yes they were supplied by Janet but I am not receiving any monetary or product compensation for this post or the giveaway. In fact I contacted Janet to do this as I am so intent on helping out folks whose products I have used and like.

There are two shirts the beige is a medium regular cut and the pink is a ladies cut sleeve in a large.

If you are interested in winning one of these fun shirts for yourself or to gift your favorite fiber fanatic please leave a comment and the shirt of your choice. Drawing will be held on Sunday February 18th and announced on Monday the 19th. All entries will receive a number as they are posted and numbers will be used in the drawing out of the hat. Yes a knitted hat lol.

"Free Range Yarns." What a great name! And a great logo too! Those skeins of yarn look incredibly huggable. :)

To tell the truth Leigh the is what grabbed me after the yarn products. And the products are squeezable for sure.

Glad to have you here with all you have on your plate right now. From your photo I would say pink shades suit you well. In the hat you go!
