Thanks to Sheepgal!

Saturday morning, as I was getting ready to go to the Wellesley Booksmith for a book signing with Kristin Nicholas (gettingstitchedonthe farm), her darling daughter Julia ,and Melissa Morgan Oakes,(melissaknits) I stopped to take a quick peak to see if any lambs has been born at Springhill Farm. It was an honor to see that Barb posted a challenge to her readers and offered a copy of my recent book, along with her luscious yarn as a prize. As part of the conditions of the challenge is that people post a comment on my blog. I was shocked to see how many people looked at the very humble, (needs to be improved) posts and left comments of support and enthusiasm. Thank you everyone and especially to Barb for the kindness and support of my book!

I would love to try dying but the few attempts I have made so far have no been successful.
I think I am in dire need of your book!

Many congrats on your new book. I'd really like to try dyeing yarn. I've been hoping to take a dyeing class but the timing never works out. Maybe your book is just what I need!

Gail,

I'm sure that your new book is also a "lambing" experience of sorts! Best wishes from one of Sheepgal's Sheep Shares members!

I have heard a number of great things about your book--not just from Barb! As an aspiring dyer, I look forward to my next paycheck so I can purchase it and learn from your shared wisdom! Congrats on the book!

Congrats on the 'birth' of your book. Glad it did not have to hang out in the pouch too long.
