Entries for this GIVEAWAY are now closed. Congratulations to our Givewaway winner, Sara, who posted on November 12 at 8:25 a.m. - she is the lucky winner of a Sheep Shares CSA 2014 Yarn Sampler (natural) membership. Thank you to everyone who posted - and for all your kind words on the launch of my new book.
I can't believe it's almost that time. The official publication date for my new book, Adventures in Yarn Farming is next week - is November 12th! On that date, my book will be available everywhere.
I'm celebrating the official publication this month by offering a chance for one lucky person to win a membership to Sheep Shares CSA 2014.
Would you like that? Do you know someone who would?
Please leave a comment here on this post - tell me what you enjoy most about working with wool. I'll randomly draw a winner on November 30th - and that lucky someone will be enrolled as a Yarn Sampler Natural member for Sheep Shares CSA 2014. The winner will be announced here and via the email address you provide with your comment (please do not type your email addy in the body of your comment, just provide in the space where it asks for email so I can contact you.)
Please do share this post and celebrate PUB DATE with me. Thanks!
And in the meantime, here's a video trailer the good people at Roost Books made to give you a preview of my book:
Just back to the farm after a weekend vending and book signing at the Fiber Festival of New England at the Eastern States Exposition. Thanks everyone who stopped by my booth to scoop up skeins of Cormo yarn and to be among the first to acquire a copy of Adventures in Yarn Farming. I'm really flattered to hear the positive, warm responses from those of you who had purchased copies at Rhinebeck two weeks ago - and have already finished reading it. Wow, and wow. You made my day.
Writing a book is like working in a bubble. It's wonderful, really,not only to be finally sharing my work but also to be receiving feedback. Thank you.
With the hour's time change, we're back to doing evening chores after dark. It's hat and mitten weather out there tonight. We'll be banging ice out of the water buckets come morning.
Stay tuned this week for an announcement about a blog give-away celebrating my book launch and a heads up about Sheep Shares Yarn Farm CSA 2014.
Note: This lovely photo was taken by Ben Barnhart, the photographer who provided most of the photos for my book.
