If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that Ricefield Collective, which I supported on Kickstarter, held a photo contest for their Kickstarter backers and early customers. Fingerwarmers won the grand prize, and the Ricefield Collective blog Q&A just posted today!

The contest grand prize was seven pieces from the winter collection (which fortunately fit Ian and I much better than Fingerwarmers), and we love every single one. They are all warm, soft, and cozy, which is very important here in New England (currently 15 degrees). They also are beautiful, hand knit, and feature patterns difficult or impossible to replicate on a machine. And every purchase supports women in the Philippines, providing them enough of an income to stay and farm their ancestral lands.
