i'm involved in a neat promotional project. jessie from illinois invited me (through etsy) to be part of her "knitting boxes" project. she'll be collecting samples of knitting products (rovings, batts, hand spun yarn, knitting cards, stitch holders etc) and making up boxes to sell to knitting groups, knitting stores, home knitters etc. we're each asked to submit 45 samples (for me it will be tiny skeins of yarn - enough to knit up into a 4" swatch). so far she has around 60 people participating. this will be a monthly event - i'm part of the debut box - and each month has a theme. mine is "winter mix". this is a good way to get island sweet yarn known. for more information about this project you can check out the link on the right side of my blog.
