Gale's Art Sock Yarn Giveaway!




I was tickled pink (excuse the pun!) to be able to drop a full sized skein of Gale's Art "Pigs in Space" yarn in a box in December! As I said in the video, I'm not much of a pink person, but I would totally wear some socks made with this yarn. It just works!

I was so struck by Gale's artistry that I purchased some "Swirl BFL" fiber from her shop she had named "Pretty Pretty". Though it looked pretty in the photo- it is rare that I gasp audibly when I open my fibery packages. It was not just pretty, but beautiful!! So artfully dyed and all the colors flowed together as if it grew on the sheep that way! Tucked inside my purchase was a beautiful tussah silk sample- the shiniest and softest tussah silk I have *ever* seen! I will certainly be back for more- and very soon!

We're giving away this beautiful "Pigs in Space" skein of sock yarn dyed by Gales Art to a lucky commentor! Visit Gale's Shop, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner tomorrow so be sure and you get those extra entries by twittering/facebook/blogging about this giveaway!

Thank you Gale, for once again for showing us why your shop is called "Gale's Art" and not just "Gale's Yarn and Fiber!"

I hope everyone knows by now that our theme for December's box is "Aurora Borealis and Beyond". I want everyone to also know that our AnneMarie from SmokyMountainFibers has been ahead of the game for a while! She has a lot of celestial inspired fibers in her shop.

One of the prettiest planetary inspired rovings is her "Saturn" colorway, and that is what she's sent in for us to sample in December. It's bright and warm and would be the perfect spin-by-the-fire you need during the dark winter nights ahead!

Go look for yourself :) While you're there, feel free to oogle the spinning wheels, the dyes, the yarn, *sigh* this is where I daydream about having a part time job at WCMercantile (quality control, you know, so Steph can put an 'inspected by J' sticker on everything).

Wild Hare Lucky roving: PJS (jcloke)

Congrats!!!

The finish carpenters who are supposed to be * drywalling * my studio just broke a water main (head/desk) .

I'm sure I'll be posting this weekend, but I did want to remind everyone that we are FAST approaching the deadline for the Fall competition (Dec 20th!) I hope you're all spinning/clicking/poking away!

Shearlock's Choice Award- Light Brown Hare








Our Shearlock is said to be en route back home from Light Brown Hare Headquarters. I do hope he doesn't get caught in a blizzard!

Shearlock had an absolute amazing time this past month, and as you can see from the photos he was incredibly well taken care of- I hope he hasn't gained too much weight or we'll have to put him on that nasty alfalfa sprout diet again.

After discovering the Light Brown Hare crew also enjoys Battlestar Gallactica, Shearlock phoned home to say he wanted to stay a little longer. The food, the wine, the all day dyeing and the cutting up with Dale (Shearlock finally got to use all of his BSG jokes/quotes and references!)- it has been heaven for him.

Dale has already listed some full sized yarn that will be featured in our "Aurora Borealis and Beyond" December box. I am certainly drooling over the 600 yd Nebula yarn. *Sigh* I love it when I can buy a special skein of fingering weight in enough yardage to knit a small shawl. Nebula, you may be mine yet :)

Thank you so much Dale, for taking such good care of Shearlock and for letting us all in on your adventures in dyeing and knitting. We've had great fun peeking in on your artwork!

Moonlight and Laughter Batt Giveaway!



Oh I've yet to have my first sip of Egg Nog this year, but the November Moonlight and Laughter samples made me crave it! I also look at the yarn and immediately see a little knit dress with embroidery on the bodice for my little toddler. Hmmm. Maybe this yarn needs to be mine?

Marilla is one of the sweetest Phatties there is and her strength and wisdom as a person amazes me. She dyes some amazing yarn and fiber too!

We're giving away this beautiful lilac batt created by Marilla. It's incredibly floofly and delicate looking and would make the lovliest yarn, I think! Please visit Moonlight and Laughter and find something you like, write about it in the comments section below so we can all see!

Blue Mountain Handcrafts fiber Giveaway!



As we approach Winter, there is no need to be glum! Winter has traditionally been a time to catch up on all of our fibery projects, a time for quiet reflection and to notice the subtle winter beauty that surrounds us.

Beth, from Blue Mountain Handcrafts has created this gorgeous set of spinning batts called 'Bare Trees and Blue Sky' for a giveaway (psst click the link and buy it for yourself while it's still in her shop!) A beautiful melange of blues, grays and black with a hint of sparkle.

When you visit Blue Mountain Handcrafts, you'll notice right away, the humorous and whimsical atmosphere and the colorful creations. Beth has also managed to use the word fiber and bail in the same sentence and for that, I think she needs some special award :) It got me thinking about what a happy place Blue Mountain must be, and reminded me of that old song about a "Big Rock Candy Mountain" Swap out fibery goodies for the sugary stuff and that must be what Blue Mountain is like!- Am I right, Beth?

We're giving away this beautiful Bare Trees batt set! Just visit Blue Mountain Handcrafts, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner on Friday so be sure to check back! Also remember to retweet/facebook for extra entries.

Thanks so much Beth, for your gorgeous creations and your lighthearted and supportive outlook on what is normally considered a serious affliction (at least that's what my hubby thinks!)

Alisha Goes Around Spark Sock Giveaway!




Whew! I hope everyone had an enjoyable and festive weekend! We spent the day Saturday trimming my Father-In-Law's tree for him and I kept thinking about this beautiful skein of sock yarn that Alisha Goes Around sent in for a giveaway.

This Spark Sock is truly amazing- the warmth of wool, the softness of silk and the sparkle of sterling silver!! I think it's simply gorgeous, but we're a little "partial to the sparkle" at casa Phatfiber.

I really love Alisha's website, I check back often and am always surprised with more color and bases each time I visit. Today, we're giving away this amazing holiday-red skein of Spark Sock (400 yds!). All you need do is sit down, pour your hot beverage of choice, visit Alisha Goes Around and find something that strikes your fancy. Post about it here, so we can all go see too and wait until Friday for me to draw a winner. Be sure and leave a way for me to find you- we don't want your winnings to end up in the great give-back in January! Oh, and if you tweet/plurk/facebook/blog/ravelate this you'll be given extra entries.

Thanks so much Alisha, for sharing this beautiful sock yarn with all of us!

Farm Girl Chic Gift Set Giveaway!



Melissa of FarmGirlChic is putting together these incredible gift sets in time for the holidays! I love the vintage charm style she puts into creating these one of a kind wonders.

I was going to say this is the perfect gift for the knitter/spinners in your life, but I think I will amend that so say this is the gift you should get yourself! Imagine waking up Christmas morning after only a 2 hour nap (you've been up all night playing santa you know!) you wade through the sea of wrapping paper and say "look, there's one gift left for me!" The kids and significant others have gone off to play with their new toys and now there is this beautiful gift of fiber/knit time just for you! Thank you FarmGirlChic!

We're giving away this beautiful farm fresh gift set to a lucky commenter! Just visit FarmgirlChic and find something you like, write about it in the comments section below, and we'll be drawing for a name tomorrow! Remember to twitter, facebook, ravelate about this contest for extra entries!

Two Sheep Fiber Shop and Giveaway



New to the Phat Fiber box this month is Two Sheep Shop, offering luxurious and affordable handspun yarns!

Two Sheep Shop hails from Canada, but US customers don't fret! You could purchase your yarn and have yourself a lovely completed project in time for the holidays, no problem! I enjoy that the shop is all handspun and it's divided into sections by weight. I'm eyeing some of that laceweight- enough to make a small shawl!

We're giving away some silk laceweight handspun! Just visit Two Sheep Fiber Shop, find something you like, and post about it in the comments section below- remember to retweet/update your facebook to get extra entries! Check back to see if you've won on Friday!

The Critter Ranch Waldorf Salad Giveaway!




I can't tell you how much I loove the Critter Ranch samples this month! So cute, so creative, so crafty! I am regretting now, not copying down the waldorf salad recipe! Maybe if I sweet-talk Sue, she'll email it to me :)

Speaking of Waldorf Salad, it used to be on a list of dishes I would not touch. In fact, my older sister and I had a set of rules we came up with as children visiting various family gatherings, parties and such. One of the rules I remember was any kind of salad that had a person's name in the title was inevitably icky and should not be eaten.

I recently purchased some of Sue's beautiful Llama roving and I think I may have even found an appropriate pattern to spin it for here. I'm super excited to be giving away this 2.2 oz llama fiber from The Critter Ranch! We'll be drawing later this week, so please visit The Critter Ranch, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll grant extra entries for those who tweet/facebook/blog about her shop too!

Sue, thank you so much for working on these samples this month, they were truly awesome!

Comfed Out Kaiser Scarf Giveaway



There are a few samples that come in to HQ I am especially touched by and Dawn of Comfed Out Kaiser has sewn several sachets, cut from one of her grandmother's quilts this month.
I felt it was truly keeping with the Home for the Holidays theme!

When you visit Dawn's shop, the first thing you read is her wonderful introduction:
Comfed Out Kaiser is what I think of as my own perfect little corner of the world. Where everything that is usable gets reused. Where history has a value. Where organic doesn't just mean food. Where everything I do supports my community both local and online.

I love that her shop is not only a place to help support her role as a work at home Mom, but also an expression of her sociological values- a way to use her income to support others.

In this spirit, Dawn would like to give away this beautiful hand-knit wool scarf to a lucky commenter here on the blog. All you need do is tell us who you would give this lovely scarf to! Don't worry about tweeting or retweeting, just take a minute and think about who you would give this piece of handmade goodness to.

Read more about Dawn at her entertaining blog here: http://kaisermommy.com/

Knit it Up Tag giveaway!



I just ordered myself some knitting gift tags from Knit it Up Yarns. I wish I think I might have to go back for some kate's more humorous tags as I played it safe buying the elegant pretty kind.

We're giving away a set of her more blatent tags and here is what Kate has to say in the listing:

I'm a gift knitter. I just love the satisfaction of making something with my own two hands for someone I love. These gorgeous gift tags have a place for you to write in your name and the recipient's name, and when you flip them over you can write in the fiber content and care instructions for your gift.

Unfortunately, not everyone appreciates the hard work you put into your handknitted pieces of art. Hopefully you're not knitting for those people, but just in case you think your recipient might need a bit of a reminder, these tags have a little note at the bottom that reads: "This project took hours of my precious time to make. You may now ooh and ahh and wear it every single day for the rest of your life." {Inspired by the lovely knitters in Ravelry's Selfish Knitter's Group}

Each set comes in a tin box for safekeeping.

I love it, having a few people on my list who are teetering on that not-so-knitworthy edge this year myself :)

Visit Knit it Up, find something you like, and post about that item in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner on Saturday! Tweets, facebooks, and blog posts get second entries!

Thank you always Kate for bringing some perspective to our knitted gifts this year!
