Samhain giveaway

I decided to have a giveaway for Samhain to celebrate the turn of the wheel.
This shawl is the prize. Hand dyed mohair and a large shawl to keep you warm during outside rituals.
The colours remind me of misty skies and the way that mist mutes the colours of the trees and plants. It is very soft and very light to wear, yet warm.
If you would like to win this shawl leave a comment for me. I'll draw the winner on Samhain.

Amber, you have been a knitting fiend! You are making sweaters, shawls galore, and sharing earth wisdom all at once. I wish the pond which separates us were smaller, and unspoken for time more abundant so that I could learn from you more directly. Even if I lurk around your blog, I enjoy reading your every post. Hugs.

Gosh. I have experienced your gorgeous knitting before, but this is really something special! It seems to be telling me that it would really like to live in a small, draughty thatched cottage in Devon.

Of course, you may disagree... ;)

Bounced over from Mel's blog! What a beautiful piece- it looks absolutely yummy!!!

I've been trying to learn how to knit, and I can manage the stitches, but anything more than that seems to be cause for holes and mild panic.
I'm sure I'll get it eventually... :)

It's stunning! Your colour perception is amazing and I just get happily lost in every description you give of each knitted piece.Beautiful :D

Amber...What a beautiful shawl!! And in my colors, too. Where I live in the desert southwestern US, it would be the only wrap I would need for the dark part of the year
Blessings, Lynn

'Tis indeed a most beauteous thing. I have often drooled over your shawls dear ambermoggie...and although it may well wish to take up with a certain EW in Devon, it may also be persuaded to fly over to Melbourne.

But then, I don't think I am particularly deserving of such cosiness when we are about to enter into a Moste Wicked Summer.

I salute thee and thy crafty ways!
