Giving away handspun soon ...
Dimly I had been thinking, what am I going to do with all this newly spun yarn? I don't knit or crochet. I just love spinning, and I'm building up great purposeless yarn mounds in a corner of the living room.
Then on Friday I read about the SewMamaSew May Giveaway. So I'm going to participate and give away two or three skeins. If you come back tomorrow or the next day, they'll be up. (The US 17 May being the NZ 18 May...)
It's kinda nerve-wracking. What if no one wants them? What if I can't even give them away? Well, I guess at least I will have tried to find a good home for them.
I've been searching around on the internet to find other New Zealanders who are joining the May Giveaway. There's Highway Cottage Weblog. And I'd love to hear of any others if you know of them (or are them).
[Update 9.40 am Monday: Here is another NZer doing it - MakeItGiveIt - a really nice idea for a blog too.
9.45 am: Oooh - and another - Cat Taylor Design. This is exciting!
9.51 am: And another! Seaside Siblings. My daughter would love a ragdoll like that .... Oh, and she handily has a link list of several other NZers doing it!]
Oh, and speaking of giving things away - look at this new initiative in Wellington! What an awesome idea. I wonder if they take yarn as well as veges.
