Hi, folks! Hope everyone is doing well. I've been enjoying reading and logging all the fun questions that you left me last giveaway in your comments. There's quite a few of them to answer, so I've decided that over the course of the next few weeks I'll be doing some blog posts to answer all of your questions. This should be fun! And, thank you for all of your sweet comments.
Well, well... this week I have a luxurious giveaway for you! Our wonderful sponsor and guest is Sabrina of Anzula Luxury Fibers. I had fun interviewing her a few weeks back. Check out our chat together (I apologize for the sound feedback; unfortunately, our connection wasn't perfect):
Links and such from the videos:

- Sabrina on Rav
Thank you, Sabrina, for visiting us and come back anytime!
Anzula's beautiful yarns and fibers can be found online at Purl Soho & Sandra Singh. Sabrina is so talented at dyeing up gorgeous semi solids! I would love to knit myself a sweater out of her For Better or Worsted in the Charcoal colorway, and knit up a lace shawl or stole out of the Wash My Lace in maybe the Toffee color. Honestly, any of the Anzula yarns and fibers would rock my world!
Sabrina is sponsoring THREE ridiculously wonderful prizes for three lucky followers to have a chance to win:
Grand Prize winner will receive 5 skeins of Cricket MCN (that stands for Merino, Cashmere, Nylon for those of you who don't know) in the lovely color Prince! Each skein boasts 250 yards and I got to thinking, hmmmmm... a 1,000 yards of sport weight yarn. That's enough for a Goodale sweater in almost all the sizes available! I quickly contacted Cecily, the uber-talented designer, and twisted her arm to toss in a PDF copy of her pattern for the grand prize winner. Wink, wink! I really want to knit this neat cardi myself in the very near future. I absolutely adore the genius construction of the pockets and I think it would be a super addition to my spring and summer wardrobe.

How awesome would a Goodale sweater be outta this yarn?!
Also, TWO runners up will receive one of the below luxury skeins of fingering weight yarn:
Squishy in Candied Apple
Sebastian Seacell/Merino in Charcoal
I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:
1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.
2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 3/13/11. What's your favorite spring time color to knit with? Or, do you knit in the same color(s) all year long?
I tend to lighten or brighten my knitting color palette when the weather starts warming up. For me it's the smell and sight of flowers that inspires me to buy cheerful colors to knit with. Actually, some of my favorite colors are muted pastels and I just love knitting them when spring's around the corner!
I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.
