But here's the thing about the Central Valley. Anyone who's been here any time between the beginning of June and the beginning of October knows that the summers are capital H-O-T HOT. We're talking in the 100's, sometimes the 110's, on a regular basis. The good news is that it's a dry heat...but it's still a LOT of heat.
And can you imagine if it were that hot and you were, say, standing over steaming pots of yarn simmering in dye baths? Say, in an old meat-packing plant WITHOUT AIR CONDITIONING? Doesn't sound fun, eh? Well, that's what the ladies at Anzula have been sticking through every summer, because they love their art that much.
So they've started an Indiegogo campaign in the hopes of raising enough money to install much-needed air conditioning units in their warehouse. They have tons of fabulous perks at many different price points (I may have taken advantage of a couple *ahem* even if I don't need any more yarn...) and only 8 days left in the campaign.
So here's where the giveaway comes in. You may have noticed all the photos of the extremely photogenic little mini-skeins of Anzula's For Better or Worsted yarn in a lovely rainbow of colors. Would you like this bouquet of mini-skeins to be yours? Just pop on over to the Anzula Indiegogo campaign headquarters and check it out. To get your name thrown in the hat, leave me a comment letting me know if you've ever knit with Anzula yarns before, and if so, which is your favorite. To get your name in the hat TWICE, mention the campaign on your social media venue of choice (Twitter, Ravelry, Facebook, etc.) and leave me a comment with a link. And to get your name in the hat FIVE TIMES, make a contribution to the campaign (any amount counts!) and let me know in the comments. Oh, and please let me know a way to get ahold of you as well (email, Rav ID, blog link, etc.). The giveaway will be open until next Thursday, the 17th, at 11:59pm Pacific, and I'll draw a winner on Friday morning (the 18th).
