Extremely Very Early Spring Giveaway

Leave a comment on this blog post for a chance to win the brand new tatting book La Frivolite Aux Navettes AND 2 skeins of size 20 hand dyed thread in the colors pictured above. The book is written in French, with over 1000 clear photos that need no translation. The thread is my own hand dyed from the "Stardate" and "Celery" batches. I'll use a random number generator to choose a lucky winner on Tuesday, March 12.
