"What will you create from our wool?"

 Up for grabs are NINE prizes – comprised of both brand new Foxfire yarns (& spinning fiber) and vintage Foxfire Fiber & Designs skeins no longer available to the public.

The best part of this KAL is you get to do whatever project you want. We're calling this a KAL but projects may be knit, crotchet, handspun, woven or felted. The only requirement is you use Foxfire Fiber & Designs yarn or fiber.  Use your stash (or more recent FFF acquisitions) and your imagination.

Here are the guidelines: 

  – Forward this post to anyone you think needs a little encouragement to crash their stash (you may forward this to yourself if you have to).

– Join our Ravelry group: Foxfire Fiber Friends.

– Post your intent to join the KAL in the thread, "KAL Joining Thread Foxfire Fiber Autumn 2011". 

  – Cast on no earlier than 9.4.11. You can cast on after today, just be sure to finish on time!!

  -  Have fun crashing your stash!  Look to the group for ideas and support.

–  Finish & Post your finished project on Ravelry by midnight EST on 10.15.11. Be sure to use in the "Finished Projects KAL Autumn 2011." We will draw nine lucky winners from the projects posted there. Winners will be announced both here and in the Foxfire Fiber Friends Ravelry group forum.

  – Bask in your sense of accomplishment.

NOTE: You may enter as many projects as you make during the KAL timeframe for more chances to win, but we'll give only one prize per winner.

  Nine – that's right, nine – lucky winners will be drawn at random to win one of these beautiful Foxfire Fiber & Designs prizes:

  1. Two vintage Skeins of Hand Paint Border Leicester Mohair yarn
  2. Two vintage Skeins Border Leicester yarn in color "Marcasite"
  3. Two vintage Skeins of Rambouillet cross hand painted yarn
  4. Two vintage Skeins of Rambouillet cross hand painted yarn
  5. An assortment of hand-spinning fiber (Cormo, Border Leicester, Fine Wool Cormo Cross, Some Mohair blends)
  6. Two skeins of our brand new Cormo Camel Silk
  7. Four Skeins brand new Cormo Silk Alpaca Slub Yarn
  8. Two vintage Skeins heavy worsted Border Leicester & Fine Wool in color "Black Currant"
  9. Two vintage Skeins heavy worsted Border Leicester & Fine Wool in color "Hurricane"

I can't wait to see what everyone creates from their Foxfire stashes.  I feel so grateful to have such a dedicated group of inspired and inspiring people in Friends of Foxfire Fiber.  

Now let's get crashing! Please spread the word.
