Simply state in the comments which colors of Quechua and Alpaca Silk you’d like to win. Click on the yarn names to see the colors. You have until midnight tonight, then I’ll pick the two winners.
In case you’re wondering how the winners are selected, I combine the number of comments on the blog with those on the Facebook post. Any duplicates are deducted, then a random number generator spits out the magic number. I count from the top of the list to find the winner. And that’s how the magic happens!

    The colors for both yarns are fantastic and I had a hard time choosing. Finally decided on Peacock in Alpaca Silk and Flare in Quechua.
