I am delighted to welcome back one of my personal favorite fiber artists, Jackie of Luna Grey Fiber Arts.

"I am a botanist turned at-home mama to two spirited, loving little boys. They keep me on my toes and remind me to take some time to appreciate the little things. A typical day might find us role playing dinosaurs, ankle deep in sand surrounded by toy diggers and cranes, chasing around our flock of chickens or on a hike through the high desert that surrounds our home in beautiful Western Colorado."

"When the boys drift off to sleep each evening, I cannot get to my yarn fast enough! Knitting, spinning and dying yarn both relaxes and energizes me (if that makes any sense). I love all things "fiber" and have been an avid knitter since I became addicted to the craft 6 years ago. I also teach knitting classes at my amazing local yarn shop."

"My kids (boys ages 8 and 4) love to help me name my yarn colorways. They are so creative and come up with most of the names I use in my shop."

You might remember Jackie's beautiful yarn from C's koala bear sweater I knit last fall (pictured above), and as you saw in this week's KCCO post, Jackie is the mastermind behind my newest knitting project - Little L's birthday sweater (pics of that work in progress to come soon).

Today Jackie is offering one of you lucky readers a skein of her Astro sock yarn in the colorway, Atlantic.
