Spring Forward and Win Some Free Yarn!
As the new editor of Creative Knitting magazine, I’m tickled pink to have the ability to share many of the exciting new products to hit the scene. I’ve decided to “share the love,” and give you a chance to win the Eco-friendly and sustainable yarns featured in this bowl!
These 5 yarns will be featured in the July issue of Creative Knitting magazine, in Judith Durant’s informative article: Knitting With a Conscience, a review of some of this season’s new earth-friendly yarns.
Yarns featured in bowl:

The Rules: Put your yarn knowledge to the test: Send me a comment, stating which yarn companies make each of the 5 yarns in the bowl, which are listed above by yarn name. If you guess all of them right, your name will be put into a drawing to win one skein of each these yarns!
The contest had been extended! Send me your comments by midnight Wednesday, April 20th. All comments will be posted after the contest ends, along with the winner!

    here is a list of who makes what

    Renew Yarn – Rowan Purelife
    Corntastic- Kollage

    I belong to a knitting group that knits for charity
    it is nice to belong to this group, so many groups
    are just into self…but it can be quite costly to knit with natural fibers for charity, and in my local towns there is so much need for hats and gloves, even to local hospital’s cancer center where people are always so cold while in treatment and sitting at home … a simple hat brings to much warmth… I smile everytime I see some one with a hat on that I know I knitted mistakes and all… that’s what homemade looks like. Now if my group of volunteers could just learn how to get yarn at a discount we could make so much more. I coupon at a time for one skein takes forever.
