      Greetings,

      I share the same sentiment, I have purchased quite a few patterns, and have projects galore stacked up to complete. The cool evenings are now affording me a chance to jumpstart these projects for the upcoming holiday season. I love my Furls as well, especially the needles, and now I am enjoying my 8-9″ bowl.

        Great to hear you like your Furls knitting needles. Now you got me wanting and “needing” them. In fact, I’m just drooling over them as I type ;-). Furls Rock! If they are any close to the quality of their hooks, I’m sure the needles are phenomenal.

    Love contests. I’m not on Instagram or Pinterest; however, I am on Facebook. I have crocheted for a long time. I love patterns and yarn (allergic to wool) and have the added fun to be bi-stitchual! Good luck to all.

      Alethia, it’s great to be bi-stitchual or pan-stitchual. As far as fiber arts and crafts goes, the more I learn, the merrier! I absolutely recommend you to open a Pinterest account. Not only you can get some extra points in the giveaway, you will LOVE seeing all the beautiful things on Pinterest in one place. I’m addicted to it.

    What a fantastic gift you are giving!!! I am severely disabled and on a very limited income. Like many other folks, knitting, crocheting, making jewelry are the only gifts I can give for birthdays or for Christmas so having nice yarn, quality supplies, etc is an absolute joy and gives meaning to our lives. What a difference you will make to someone when they win this! Thanks for the opportunity to enter!
