Contests

 




Hi friends!

It is the busy season over here at Camp JDMS. 
Yarn is in just about every stage of the process here, raw wool waiting to go to the mill, yarn soaking, yarn in dyepots, yarn drying, yarn waiting for labels and labeled yarn waiting for a new home (yours maybe?)



Thanks to everyone who entered the contest to win a 3 month subscription to Creative Bug! There are so many things you all want to make! The winner (chosen at random, thank you random number generator!) is Kelli who has been contacted and will be getting a hank of Catskill to make her practice swatch and a hank of Splendor to knit a Little Something.




Creative Bug (like most of us) is obsessed with Pinterest & is running a Pinterest contest with a serious grand prize and some pretty awesome "runner up" prizes too.  All the details are on their blog so if you didn't win this contest you have another chance and EVEN if you don't win the new contest I think a subscription is a great deal, you can take as many classes as you want for one price! And the roster of teachers is a pretty impressive group that I'm humbled to be counted among. If you aren't on Pinterest yet send me an email jill@jilldraper.com and I'll send you an invite. It's pretty fun and a great way to collect all those bookmarked projects into one place.

Back to the dyepots for me! Hope you're having as lovely rainy Wednesday as I am!

  6. Your yarns are gorgeous. Here's the link to my pinterest board -http://pinterest.com/chelsyegarrett/i-made-this/

    I'm an art student so it may seem a little random but my focus is fibers and furniture and sometimes I mix them. Well, all the time really.

    Thanks!
