    I just love The Triple Stripe Hand Felted Wool Scarf in Purple Tones – and it’s not only the color. It looks really perfect to me!

  2. Jo on December 16, 2009 10:35 am

    I’m just getting into felting and would love a boost to my stash! :)

  3. Heidi on December 16, 2009 10:38 am

    Needle felting (and wet felting) is at the top of my to-learn list for the new year, so this would be the PERFECT prize!
    I truly adore the Shibori Style Wool and Silk Handmade Nuno Felted Scarf in Ice Blue, Salmon, and White. The colors are just beautiful together.

  4. Mary Anne on December 16, 2009 11:19 am

    I’m like Heidi – I want to learn to needle felt in the new year. I have a needle, but no wool, so that’s on my list. It would be fun to win one of the prizes!

  5. Rayna on December 16, 2009 11:25 am

    Ooo…I LOVE the felted bobby pin hearts…but I also love the scarfs…I’ve been working on needle felting, but need LOTS more practice…and a new kit would certainly help! :D

    My husband got me felting needles for my birthday a couple days ago – I have my fingers crossed I win!!

  13. Sharon Rose on December 16, 2009 3:09 pm

    No need to enter me in the contest – I have plenty of colorful roving (I’m a spinner) and this should go to a beginner – but I had to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Shibori Style Wool and Silk Nuno Felted Scarf in Red, Orange, and White. Beautiful!

  14. Rachel O on December 16, 2009 3:10 pm

  15. Juliet A on December 16, 2009 3:14 pm

    I think that the Cherries Jubilee necklace would be fun to wear to my Red Hat functions. Now that I’m a larger woman, I need larger jewelry, but I don’t want it to be too heavy. This looks just right.

    I couldn’t decide on one single item – like them all and have wanted to learn needle felting for a long time.

    We cannot locate “stuff” in our local stores to needle felt. It would be great if could win a kit. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway.

    I love it all, but most of all i love the just hanging around rainbow. They are so adorable and would look so amazing in any little girl(or adults!!!) bedroom. I live in the uk and not many places sell felting stuff, but i got some stuff at a country fair and love it!!!

    The colors are just beautiful! I would like to get back into needle felting and win this.
