Sadly I only have two prizes but it is possible to earn up to five entries. I just wish I could make winners of you all. </br></br>You<span style="font-size:8%;"> </span>'<span style="font-size:8%;"> </span>ve possibly noticed that I often use my giveaways to promote small crafty businesses ... it's a great way to share the love. Some months ago I bought a couple of these naturally dyed, reversible canvas buckets from the very talented Sonia of <a target = "_blank" href="http://cozymemories.bigcartel.com/">Cozy Memories</a>, and they<span style="font-size:8%;"> </span>'<span style="font-size:8%;"> </span>ve proved to be the perfect home for my knitting needles (although I can think of any number of other uses for them too). All Sonia's hand dyed buckets are just shy of 8" tall unfolded, have a round base, and are made of organic cotton twill, and lately she's been embellishing them with stitching using hand dyed threads. As soon as I saw her new collection I knew I had to snaffle <a target = "_blank" href="http://cozymemories.bigcartel.com/product/reversible-bucket-pistacia-ii">this bucket</a> - the one pictured below, first dyed side out and then dyed side in - to give to one of you. </br></br>If you don't know Sonia's blog, <a target = "_blank" href="http://cozyhomemaking.typepad.com/blog">Cozy Homemaking</a>, I can highly recommend it. She's a whizz with natural colour <i>and</i> writes thoughtfully about her family life in France. And check out the <a target = "_blank" href="http://cozymemories.bigcartel.com/category/scarves">wonderful hand dyed scarves</a> in her shop! </br></br><center><a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vdXUtBJFdNY/UciVx_5ZMCI/AAAAAAAAFrE/PZpXhJzU9wU/s1600/branch.JPG" imageanchor="1" ><img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-vdXUtBJFdNY/UciVx_5ZMCI/AAAAAAAAFrE/PZpXhJzU9wU/s1600/branch.JPG" /></a></center><center><a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-m5SYQNKkzRM/UciWpVLO0XI/AAAAAAAAFrU/ssO6mC9t4cM/s1600/stripes.JPG" imageanchor="1" ><img border="0" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-m5SYQNKkzRM/UciWpVLO0XI/AAAAAAAAFrU/ssO6mC9t4cM/s1600/stripes.JPG" /></a></center></br>Another whizz with natural colour is, of course, India Flint and I'm also giving away a copy of her book <a href="http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1741960797/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1634&creative=19450&creativeASIN=1741960797&linkCode=as2&tag=knitsofacto-21">Eco Colour: Botanical Dyes for Beautiful Textiles</a>. As someone who often works with botanical dyes myself this book has become one of my bibles. But if you only aspire to use plant dyes 'one day', or are simply interested in colour, it still has a great deal to offer, being as much a sumptuously illustrated chronicle of the author's love of dyeing, and of dyeing in an eco friendly way, as it is a how-to. </br></br>If you<span style="font-size:8%;"> </span>'<span style="font-size:8%;"> </span>re unsure <a target = "_blank" href="http://vimeo.com/37041401">how to enter a giveaway that uses Rafflecopter</a>, it's easy! First log in, using either your Facebook account or your name and email address, the choice is yours, although if you do use Facebook please leave a comment here with an alternative way for me to reach you should you win, a Ravelry ID maybe, or your Twitter username. And then do one or more of the things I've suggested to earn up to five entries. And if you've already subscribed, or liked, or followed, or whatever in the past you can still Enter, just click on the button (no cheating mind, I'll know!). The giveaway closes at midnight on June 30th, when two winners will be randomly selected, and that's it. Simples! All that remains is to thank <i>you</i> again, because without my many readers there'd be no <b>knitsofacto</b>. </br></br><a id="rc-30eb710" class="rafl" href="http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/display/30eb710/" rel="nofollow">a Rafflecopter giveaway</a><script src="//d12vno17mo87cx.cloudfront.net/embed/rafl/cptr.js"></script></br></br><center><a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0jRl6Y62uWs/UciW5wSPibI/AAAAAAAAFrc/13PE3wfUkPY/s1600/branch2.JPG" imageanchor="1" ><img border="0" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-0jRl6Y62uWs/UciW5wSPibI/AAAAAAAAFrc/13PE3wfUkPY/s1600/branch2.JPG" /></a></center></br><span style="font-size:78%;">Please note, this is NOT a sponsored giveaway, all prizes are provided by knitsofacto and all opinions are my own.
