Fiber Friend Giveaway!

You've heard of fairies.  You've heard of elves.  And you've heard of gnomes.

But have you heard of the fiber friends?

They too are magical creatures who are rarely seen in this world.  Where there is roving, yarn, or fabric--where there are hooks and needles, they are there.

When the lights are out, and you sleep in your bed, they protect your projects from the lurking cats who eye your yarn balls.  They keep your fabric from tumbling like an avalanche.  And they organize your tools with glee.

Once, when I was getting some granny squares for a project, I saw a figure in the shadows.  Startled, my heart jumped as I stifled a scream.  The figure did not move, just stayed in the shadows.  We stared at each other, the figure and I, until, slowly, I saw it waddle towards the light.

A little blue creature came into sight with his little hands nervously clasped together.  It looked up at me, and I down at it.  Then, I heard its little voice peep, "Hello."

It talked?  I blinked.  "What are you?"

It rubbed its palms together.  "I'm a fiber friend," it explained.  "I've lived here for years, making sure your projects are safe from the animals, and I dust your yarn stash every night," it beamed, puffing out its chest.

"Is that why you're with my granny squares?"

It nodded.

"Well," I extended my hand for it to jump on, "what are you doing out?"

The little blue friend hopped on the palm of my hand and I raised it to my eye level.  "I wanted to ask you something," it said.  "Ummm, I've been lonely, and I know you're busy, but I would like a friend, and its too far for me to walk anywhere."

And so I promised to find it a new home.

So to all my readers out there in internet land, this little fiber friend would like a new home.  It's quiet, and it doesn't take up much space at 2 1/2 inches tall.  So if you'd like him, email me at with the subject, "Fiber Friend", and I'll give him to the 10th responder.  In the body of the email, tell me

  1. If you crochet, knit, or even sew
  2. What you'd like to see more of in my blog.
  3. How you found my blog.

I will reply to your email if you are the winner of the giveaway, so we can make shipping arrangements.
