    Yes, yes! I do want it! I love this shawl, it’s just begging to be spun, knit and wrapped around my shoulders. =)

  2. Melissa

    I just started spinning, and I’m a little obsessed πŸ™‚ I’m working up to my first project with my own yarn… this could be it!

  3. Seanna Lea

    Those colors are gorgeous. I am bad at spinning (well, at least with the drop spindle), but I have been eyeing a wheel and this might be what it takes to give me that kick in the behind!

  4. Kathy

    It’s *time* for me to test my newish spinning skills on silk–& what a gorgeous pattern to make with the spun stuff πŸ™‚

  5. Laura Duren

    I just started learning to spin on a drop spindle, and I am addicted! I would love to win this great giveaway.

  6. Kris

    Pick me, please! I love Lynne’s work – she’s the one who got me started with dyeing. Without her, there’d be no Painted Sheep.

  7. Not That Heather

    Ooh, yes please! Not that I can spin well enough to be worthy of it (still a newbie who’s only finished a few skeins so far), but it’s something on which I can focus my ambition!

  8. Morgan

    I would love it! My wheel has been languishing recently as I’ve been trying to work down my yarn stash and write a novel for NaNoWriMo, and I’d love the excuse to get back on the horse!

  9. Elizabeth

    Ooh – please count me in too. I’m still not used to calling myself a spinner, but I really am!

  10. Laura

    I’ve been curious about BFL/silk blends for a while now, having only spun merino/silk and superwash BFL (clearly, I’m just starting out…).

  11. Jessica

    Beautiful! What a great fall color. If I get started right now, I may have something finished in time for next fall!

  12. Gill

    I really want it to be me because I would immediately parcel it up and send it across the miles to my sister-in-law who would be SO thrilled and SO grateful, because those are her colours. She would love making this for herself. This belongs to her : )

  13. Carrie Armbrecht

    I have just started to learn to spin on a drop spindle, and am loving it. I would love a chance to try the BFL/Tussah silk blend, as I’ve never spun or knit with it. This would be great chance for me to delve deeper into my new obsession…. uh I mean hobby.

  14. OneOfTheHive

    OOOOH! Great giveaway! I LOVE working with BFL, and this would be a nice addition to add to the Christmas knitting stash for gifts.

    Thanks for the contest, and good luck everyone!

  15. Fara

    Sounds beautiful! Just what I need…another project. No, really, I want to have that problem! Thanks!

  16. DakotaAJ

    Something to spin that is intended to be knit. That would be a nice change for me – I usually spin for the beauty of it!

  17. Michele / akasha

    Three Waters Farm has such astounding colorways. And BFL/ Tussah would be so lovely to spin!

  18. Amy

    OOOOHHH! I want me some of that fiber. I did a little sample of Indigenous in leftover sock yarn – I love the pattern!

  19. Katie O

    BFL is the first fiber I ever spun… and I loved it. Its so great. πŸ™‚ What a great giveaway!

  20. Irene

    I’ll have to learn to spin! One of the ladies at my knit club will be showing me how to use a spindle, I think.

  21. Kristen

    I have an empty spindle at home. I think it gets a little sad looking at all the others that are packed with WIPs(SIPs?). Won’t you help a spindle out?

  22. Cecile

    oooh I have yet to spin a blend of different fibres, that would be such a luxurious blend to start on!

  23. Danielle Taylor

    Oh! Just learned how to spin in August! How does Tussah spin up!?!?!
    Ohhh pretty fiber and pretty shawl!!!
    Yay!

  24. Maureen J

    I programmed a random number generator once. It’s doubtful that it is still in use, but stranger things have happened.

    Hello, Rand, baby. It’s me, Momma. Show me how you love your Mummy.

  25. Amanda

    I’ve just last week finished my beginner spinning course and fear I’m becoming hooked… I’d love a chance to move beyond Romney and merino!

  26. Rita

    I’m just learning to spin and from the other comments I see I’m not alone. New fibre would be such a treat.

  27. DebC

    I promised myself I wouldn’t buy any more fiber for a while, but I sure wouldn’t turn that yummy stuff down!

  28. Darlene

    Oh, I’m trying to find some roving to teach myself how to spin. Hey, I’ve already taught myself to knit, use DPN’s and then how to knit socks! I’d LOVE to win. (I live in a VERY rural area and there is no roving to be found within 100 miles of here.)

  29. Michelle

    Oooh, silky shawl. Looks beautiful. Hope I can answer the question if I get chosen, I’m still a fairly inexperienced knitter.

  30. Nancy

    I need some help being able to spin for knitting – perhaps this will be the impetus I need! I hope I win!!!

  31. Chris J.

    I’ve been neglecting my spinning lately. Clearly I need something special to get me back on track. This treasure sounds like just the ticket!

  32. Lynn

    This is on my “I wanna do this” list. Please pick me to help me on my way! Wow – that was a lot of me’s!
