First Year Survivor and a Giveaway

I'm officially a first year art school survivor. Final projects are finished and turned in. The paper has been written and submitted. There are no more critiques. For the first time since August, I'm deadline free. The spring semester was really hard. There were times that I doubted that I'd have the stamina to make it see here.  When I first made the leap to return to school, I had no idea what I was in for.  In the coming weeks, I'll process my experiences and reflect back on what I've learned, the feedback I've received.   It has been quite a year.

To celebrate my first year, I decided to have a giveaway.

My friend, Karyl's suggested yarn for the give away inspired by resident parrot boss, Nunu.   Nunu has so many colors of feathers greens, blues, purples,  and red that would translate nicely to yarn.

One winner will be selected to win a skein of hand dyed superwash sock yarn.

Nunu's Feathers
Fiber content: 80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon
420 yards / 100 grams
US 1-3 Needle

This yarn is the same base (Painterly) that can be found in my Etsy shop.

To enter simply perform the tasks in the Rafflecopter widget.  Winner will be selected next Monday, May 14th via Rafflecopter and announced here on the blog.  Best of luck!
