    I really want to check out this comic, but there are no shops in my area that carry it. I should probably suggest it to one of them.

  18. Great Giveaway item - so cool!
    Your yarn & pieces are beautiful - my fave is this purple marino wool - I'be been looking for some that has my Logo colors for felting soap!

  20. Oh, I've been waffling on whether to get this comic, and now they're already on to issue 2! So I'm hoping to win this one. :)

    I can't decide between the Grass Stains fingering or the Aqua Vitae laceweight. Drool ...

  21. From your shop I like the Rose and lavender Sachet!!

    I'd love this graphic novel so thaks for the giveaway!
