I WON !!

I can't believe it! I won one of these skeins of beautiful hand dyed yarn from Ray at Knitivity!

He asked people who read his blog to answer the question: “Why did I name the single ply line Biagio?” or indicate the significance of the name. The correct response, of course, is that Biagio is named after Santo Biagio (St. Blaise), the patron saint of wool-carders.

Ray makes some of the most beautiful hand-dyed yarns I have seen anywhere. I have yet to try them because I couldn't decide which ones I wanted!

If you haven't seen what Ray can do check it out here. He has an amazing talent with colors!

Thanks Ray!

That yarn is beautiful! I love the look of solid hand-dyed yarn with all the slight color variations.
