Craft It Forward

AnnaSophia has a wonderful crafty blog with all sorts of great ideas, so when she said

"If you want to win a handmade ♥GIFT♥ from me. Be one of the first 3 bloggers to leave a comment on this post, which entitles you to a handmade item from me.

Winners must post this giveaway on your blog, meaning that you will {Craft it Forward} too, creating a handmade gift for the first three bloggers who leave a comment on YOUR post about this giveaway! The gift that you send can be any price range and you have 30 days to make and ship your item(s).

Now do you see why I thought this idea was genius? How fun is this gonna be? Remember, it’s the spirit and the thought that count! When you receive your gift, please blog about it, sharing appropriate Linky Love! If you are not one of the Top Three to comment on this post, you can still play along. Please start your own {Craft it Forward} chain, and encourage your blogging friends to do the same. "

I mean, how could I resist?

My craft it forward arrived today. Thank you, AnnaSophia. I love this sweet little notebook! It's just the thing to tuck in my purse so I'm not writing Notes About Important Stuff on the back of receipts from the Tree or Ollie's!

So, now it's my turn, and yours! If you'd like a little something crafty from me, leave a comment. I'll draw three names at random (thank you Random Number Generator). If your name is pulled among the 3, I'll contact you for your snail addres, then I'll make you something and send it along. Remember that you need to post when it arrives and Craft It Forward to 3 more bloggers.
So, what else do we have in the giveaway bin?

I went NUTZ at Goodwill on the weekend and came home with many pounds (like 13) of yarn that I will use mostly for weaving. These gems were among the haul, and since I'm unlikely to use them anytime soon, I thought that I would offer them up.
Any takers?? Tell me what you would do with 5.5 balls of LB Fun Fur (black, lava, and denim), 2 balls of Patons Allure (one is so purple that it's almost black, the other garnet red), a ball of black Chincilla Light, and that bit in the middle of Yin.

Best answer wins the yarn.


Knit a cat of many colors. (No, not
a coat. A cat.)

Second idea: some fur-niture.
I'd use the fun fur for chemo hats. Kids would love the wild colors.
Id use the black for a fiber hedgehog as a prize for winning the science fair. The rest would go into fuzzy scarves for the in-laws. Not very original but they love em.
