Winding the Skein Handspun Yarn Giveaway!

I am so happy to share one of my favorite yarnies with you all. If you follow Inner Hooker on facebook you have heard me sing my love for Debra from Winding the Skein.  She is UH-MAZING!

Check out this thick and thin!  This yarn seems to be so popular these days and can you see why?!?!  Beautiful!


these locks and corespun are to die for!!  Oh what I would do for some of those gorgeous locks!

Not only is Debra extremely talented her family is also involved!  

Her 14 year old son Jonathan sells the wooden buttons on her sites.  


The wood is from her parent's farm that was homesteaded by her great grandfather!  Her mother was born in the old farmhouse and still lives there!  Isn't that pretty neat.  I love the history.  Jonathan's grandpa helps him cut the buttons and then he sands and drills the holes.  I have a few of these buttons and they are truly a work of art.  So when you buy wood buttons you are helping Jonathan save for his dream camera to continue pursuing his photography and videography.

Debra's other son Gabriel is 12 and makes and sells PVC Niddy Noddys.  

I don't have much first hand use with them since I still haven't pulled out my wheel to learn to spin but they are a great tool for spinners or even if you recycle yarn.  Head over to Winding the Skein to read more about how Gabriel makes these and what makes his so great!

Such little entrepreneurs!  Seriously look at that kid!  What a handsome little man!

 I love supporting handmade and this family is the picture of it!  Everyone working together to do the best they can for their family.  I wish I could put into words just how amazing Debra is.  We are not extremely close but we have chatted online for the last year or so and as silly as it is to say I totally look up to her.  She is the kind of woman and mom I hope to continue to grow to be.  


NOW FOR WHAT YOU ALL HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR!!

Winding the Skein is giving away 3 prizes!!!

**1st prize will win a $20 shop credit**

2nd prize will win 5 Myrtle wood buttons

3rd prize will win an oversized (we are talking BIG like 7" big) handspun pompom
(adorable to add to a hat or for a little decor in your craft room!)  

here's how to enter:


Mandatory Entry:
Check out Winding the Skein on Etsy and her website and tell me what you will spend your winnings on!

want a few extra chances to win??

if you are on Pinterest pin your favorite item!  (be sure to leave me a link to your pin!)

Facebook, tweet, or blog about this giveaway!  (also leave me a link please!)

REMEMBER!

SEVEN chances for you to win!  You can do 1 or all 7 but you must leave a separate comment for each entry.

Contest will close February 2 at 11:59pm.  The winner will be announced Friday February 3.

Winding the Skein has an upload day that just happens to be Mondays!
Be sure to check her out this evening, you won't be disappointed!


While you are there you can also snatch up a knitting pattern or  even some recycled yarn (for an amazing deal).  Debra got me to overcome my fear and taught me to knit with dpn's with her video!  Dude...don't be scared.  Try them...they are easy!

Can't stop drooling???  Yeah, I know...me either.  Check out Winding the Skein on Flikr to see her portfolio of work!

 'Arizona' and 'Dex' obviously are 2 of my faves :)

yeah, just click the pic, you know you want to

I don't blog. But I do have a Pinterest board that has averaged 100+ new followers (and counting) for the past three days. It's a board linking to free patterns (I know that doesn't exactly help you much) but the followers are obviously lovers of yarn and of hats. I would happily go off topic a few pins if I won. Think about it. :-)
