Seven Yaks and *Giveaway*







How cool is this!?! Many of you lucky Phat Fiber box recipients will be getting acrylic needle gauges from Seven Yaks!
Take a look at Lynne's shop! She really has everything there! I am personally eyeing the sock blocks! No splinters or mildew from being wet like wood sometimes does! I think she even has some "blond moment" ones on clearance *grin* She has a fancy laser that she uses to cut out and engrave original designs! So, for all of you small business owners out there, get a hold of Seven Yaks and have them do some promotional gauges for you! She does wholesale her products- what a great opportunity!
Lynne was inspired by our "Wintry Mix" theme for January and came up with these gorgeous snowflake needle gauges! These could easily double as winter decorations! I am so doing a knitting/crochet/fiber themed Christmas tree next year.
I would like to give one of these snowflake gauges away- you really have to see it to believe it! Go to Seven Yaks Shop, check out her many many goodies and write a comment below! Plurk, Twitter, Rav, Blog comments get second entries! Seven Yaks had 13 pages of goods to look at in the shop last time I checked- so this should be really easy! Winner will be announced Tuesday!
Thank you Lynne for your January contribution- I can't wait to see what inspires you for February's box!

The yarns and roving are beautiful, and as a knitter I probably should pick one of those. But the wavy patterned Heart Brooch is what triggered my "WANT IT NOW" impulses. It's stunning.

Everything there looks so cool, but I think the combo sock blocker and needle gauge is super-clever!

I love love love the snow flake needle gauges.

Those snowflake gauges are great - especially the mirrored ones! I also love the lampwork beads. I think my favorite is the green "Icing on the Cake" trio.

Marsha said...

WOW! This was a truly wicked place to send me before the holidays.
So many beautiful rovings, and I don't even spin....yet.
Then wander on over to the lampwork beads and all the cut beads........oh my. Then I have to go back to the snowflake knit guage and then the sock blockers.......
AWESOME SHOP! My credit card is already squealing.

very cool! off to stalk them some, smile

Josiane said...

The snowflake needle gauge is a great idea: cute and functional! I also liked the sock blockers; I thought it was a neat idea to make holes in them so that they can serve as needle gauge as well (and the socks will dry a bit faster!).

OMG her store is so amazing!! the idea of including a needle gauge on the sock blockers is just brilliant. So many things I want from her store!!

JC said...

I'm really enjoying the selection of roving- how delicious!

turvid said...

I love the the snowflake needle gauge (I don't have a US-one) and the sock blockers, too. :)

Knit Pickins said...

Really, really cool needle gauge. Pretty stitch markers, and now I know where I can go if I want to get some roving to make a pair of thrummed mittens! Since I'm not a spinner, I don't need a huge amount... perfect!

D Louise said...

Wow. Great store. Lots of things to add to my "Santa List."

ikkinlala said...

Those needle gauges are lovely, and I also really like the roving (especially the Teak colour at the moment).

I've looked at that shop before .. and didn't stay too long as I knew I wouldn't be able to resist buying lots of things !! I particularly love her sets of circular bamboo needles right now !! :-P

Mel said...

Darn it!! I didn't see this til today, and it's tuesday, announcement day for the winner! Oh well, I don't NEED one, I just really think they are cool! I'm loving these snowflake needle gauges! They are just SWEET! Thanks for sharing all of this neat stuff with us!

Deeners said...

Thank you! Store has been favorited for after Christmas shopping. I definitely need one of those snowflake needle gauges. And the cat toy kit is adorable.

Sharon Rose said...

The snowflake design is gorgeous, but since I tend to toss my tools randomly into my knitting bag I would be concerned about snags. The octagonal one is beautifully practical! And the wavy heart brooch is sublime!

Amber/Rayne said...

So now my wishlist is larger DOH! The snowflake is so COOL! There is roving i want and those sock blockers yes!

Breien in Lansingerland said...

Ohhh.... wonderful tools. I also fell for the sock blockers :-)

Sue said...

I love the needle snowflake gauge is so unique....also some of the scarf kits caught my eye...thank god I don't have a credit card and just drained the pay pal account...but there is always tax refunds around the cornor

RoamingKnitter said...

Love the snowflake needle gauge and couldn't decided just which stitch markers I liked best. But the thing that really grabbed me was the acrylic sock blocker with the needle sizer built in.

Stacy said...

How cute! I definitely need one of those....

Kristen said...

I love the glass beads, but I think the sock blockers would be my thing. Very cool!
