Whether it's made from wool, cotton, bamboo, plastic bags, or your own pet's fur, show us what fibers you're using and how you're using it. This time around we're giving the top winners their choice of great prizes - will you fill out your stash of yarn, or grab a new iPad to organize your patterns?
