Danido and *Giveaway*







Daniella of DanidoCrafty has sent in several mini skeins of her delicious hand dyed yarn and a secret code just for Phat Fiber box recipients!
Dani's motto is "For the Bright at Heart" which I think is very appropriate and very true!
I do love my bright yarn- hee hee. Dani lives, works, and studies in Las Vegas NV-which in my opinion- makes her an authority on bright things. Just check out her skein of "citrus" yarn she sent in. (psst we're giving it away). Dani offers so much in her shop! You can buy completed knitted objects, stitch markers and of course bright, happy, yarn. Get this- Dani will custom dye a skein (or more) for you! I actually have a photograph of a tree in my side yard I want to send her to re-create the colors for me. That is, after miles of Christmas knitting is done! 2 weeks people!! Are you freaking out yet?!
Dani is currently having a really great sale in her little Etsy shop- and you can feel warm and gooey inside knowing your purchase will keep a deserving college student "in yarn" to cope with all of those exams!
And if you're in to knitting patterns well, you're in luck! Dani has several free patterns posted on her blog (I will be making a soap sack or two soon myself). I love all of the quick knits she offers- as I most of the time, have trouble getting through anything longer than a pair of socks before the next exciting must-do project is found and subsequently cast on. For those of you who get Dani's sample in the Phat Fiber January Box, you'll be given a top secret code to access a new pattern Dani developed just for her yarn sample!! I promise you'll like it ;)
It is really fun watching her blog- I love checking to see what new items and patterns crop up!

I think all that Vegas glitz has surely had an impact on Danielle. The bold bright colors are wonderful. And her stitch markers are lovely as well. I wish I'd found her store before I bought many of the yarns for gifts already completed.
I do intend to sneak back when the hollidays are done and snage some pretties for ME!

Susan said...

Love the yarn! My fav at the Etsy shop is the Sunset worsted. I'm headed to her blog now to check it out. Thanks!

I think her Susitna Worsted Wool is most lovely!

I love all her "scarflettes", but my favorite yarn is Wires and Waves. I thought of old computer screens when I saw it! Great colors on all her yarn though.

I LOVE the Foliage yarn! I love it when sellers offer a variety of weights of hand dyed yarn. :)

I think the citrus is right up my alley! I checked out the Etsy shop and the Foliage and Field of Daisies really caught my eye. Lovely colors!

Amanda said...

I love how Danielle mixes greens so well with other colors! Citrus, Foliage and Field of Dasies are beautiful!
