Kitty Grrlz and *GIVEAWAY*










One of the more amazing samples in January's box was the large handspun keychains from Kitty Grrlz! I instantly fell in love with the pale gray bamboo mini skein! It had just hints of pale pink throughout and made my heart flutter!

Kitty Grrlz not only has an amazing array of handspuns in the shop, but a second shop (Kitty Grrlz knits) full of gorgeous hand knits!
I am currently fawning over the citrus single-ply bamboo handspun she has listed now, but go look at her dazzling art yarns!

Kitty Grrlz is another one of those shops you should just allocate a portion of your paycheck to- she updates weekly!
Bobbi has also sent in some scrumptious handspun keychains for February's box in some very romantic colorways!
She is such a sweetheart- and case in point- we will be randomly dropping a $25 Kitty Grrlz gift certificate into a February Phat Fiber box!
And, because Bobbi is so awesome, We're giving away a $25 gift certificate here! The winner will be drawn on Friday along with the other winners this week. Please visit Kitty Grrlz and find something you love (easy peasy lemon squeezy) and post about it below! You know, I always give people who blog, plurk, tweet, post about this contest extra entries ;) You might make a video about why you want the gift certificate and post it to You Tube. Just make sure you leave a way for me to find you later.
Bobbi, you're awesome. I hope you will continue to contribute to Phat Fiber! Please everyone, don't wait to win a gift certificate to buy something from the shop! If you can't swing a purchase right now, bookmark her flickr and subscribe to her blog to get you through til next payday!

I really loved Marmalade Pine - HandDyed HandSpun Single Ply Bamboo Yarn, I am a hand spinner and dyer. I find the colors very pleasing and I know Bamboos will be just right.

TPK said...

Love the colors in "Beautiful Bamboo - Summer Carnival"! And I really like the fibery goodness in the 1st photo in this post.

Thanks very much for the giveaway opportunity :) I just learned about Phat Fiber a few days ago - what a marvelous idea!

I absolutely love that Turquoise Parrot. Since I've discovered such cold weather here in North-Central Arkansas, I just know that would make THE neatest scarf.

NoviceKnitter said...

OMG! The Colorways are my favorite thing about her shop! I couldn't find a single colorway that I didn't like. She is going on my faves list for sure!

SupaCindy3000 said...

Kitty Grrlz' sample was my favorite in the January box! Such amazing yarn!

joeyshouse said...

I can only love one thing? I love it all! Esp the Kitty Grrls Lite bamboo - so pretty :)

kataish said...

I honestly can't pick one. I love them all and want them all. I want to make a bed out of them for myself and sqoosh them!

I usually don't like multicoloured two plies for handspun, but the Navajo is GORGEOUS.

You'er such a pusher, Jessie!

I absolutely love the corespun yarns in her shop, especially Purple Haze. Gorgeous!

Chad said...

I'm absolutely in love with these colors: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19477676
!! They are beautiful and right up my alley...

Crys said...

I love the bamboo singles... all of them. I have several in my favorites, but the Kitty Grrlz Dark might be my all time favorite.

MaggieBelize said...

Oh, wow! Forced to pick a favorite, mine would be Beautiful Bamboo - RazzleBerry ... but I also love the Tainted Love and Prairie Gold colorways.

Also, I RT'd your tweet on this one!

Kitty Grrlz Knits & Spins! said...

hi all! i just wanted to say thank you for all the kind words and just a bit of promo here - the January bamboo sample was the color "Ice Princess" and I do hope to have more spun by the end of the month. Thanks again and good luck to all!

Carolyn G said...

I like the Beautiful Bamboo - DragonSong - HandDyed HandSpun Single Ply Bamboo Yarn

Anita said...

They are all so gorgeous!! I think my favorite might be the Batt-tacular Single spun though.... I love the purples & the way she spun that is just lovely!

craftycrafter said...

OMG, Dragonsong is just beautiful. I covet. Same with Milan Holiday.

SO amazing I had to plurk it. Seriously, what's your plurk name Jessie?

tianac2 said...

How on earth are we supposed to pick only one?! I loved all of the Bamboo ones on the first page, but I nearly died over "Manly, yes". It reminds me of a chilly morning just at dawn, watching the fog over the coast line, with a warm cup of perfect coffee in hand, cuddled up in deliciously soft jammies...yes, I got all of that from one picture on the internet!

Lorien said...

I have never knit with bamboo before, but Beautiful Bamboo is just gorgeous! I would love to knit a scarf for my big sister in Amethyst!

Nicole said...

I love the Plum Honey Navajo 3ply. The blues, purples, warm golds ... so prettttyy. So that'd be my favorite, but I'd take anything from her shop, no problem!

sunnie fairy said...

The Olive Mint colorway is SOOO beautiful! :]

Ballee said...

This colour is superbe:

Jags said...

gosh, how do you pick a favorite color? I love them all!

I suppose if I had to pick one it would be Andromeda II, those colors go so well with each other and look like they would be very soothing to knit with!

PenelopeRose said...

Wow, I love everything! It was a hard choice, but the Batt-tacular - Olive Mint - HandSpun Bulky Yarn 86 yards 3.1 oz really stood out because I'm ga ga over green.

Claire said...

Wow, tough call....I think my favorite is the "Fang" single - love the color in that. I didn't get a Kitty Grrlz sample in my January box so I sure missed out on that one!

Susan said...

I love the Andromeda II Handspun, but everything at the Kitty Grrlz shop is lovely.

MamaMay said...

Ok, just one fav... that is hard...

how about this. the colors just pop and sing to me!

Melissa Verill said...

Punk Valentine...oooh I love that one! Something for me this time maybe? Knit up quickly with nice big chunky needles?

Carissa said...

Everything has such beautiful colors but I think my fave is "Beautiful Bamboo - RazzleBerry - HandDyed HandSpun Single Ply Bamboo Yarn." SO pretty!

idyll hands said...

Can I just say that the Kitty Minis in Plum Honey is AMAZINGLY gorgeous?!? Those colors are striking yet subtle so I won't scare off my coworkers wearing something knit from that.

Lovely!

Aster said...

This is freakishly gorgeous:

Is of so freakin' pretty. I would like to have a room in those colors, just sayin'.

Sharon Rose said...

I love the Olive Mint! But if I get to choose any one thing... I'll be supersneaky and take a big gift certificate so I get to adopt lots of stuff! :)

Kelli said...

I have already bought from Bobbi many times and I am never disappointed! My current fave is the Kittygrrlz Bamboo yarn in her signature colors purple and orange!! So pretty!

Who? Me? said...

This one! I want this one!

Kitty Singles - Milan Holiday - HandDyed HandSpun Single Ply Wool Yarn

JennieG said...

i just bought some bamboo from Kitty Grrlz - can't wait to get it in the mail. Glad she posted about this... Hopefully I can get my hands on a box this month.

ZombieCat said...

I'm in love with the bamboo single-ply in amethyst vine! Gorgeous! Also, the navajo 3-ply in tainted love. Ohhhhhhhh!

Not all about me said...

If I won, I think I will go for the Kitty Singles Dark Fable. All her colorways are all my favorite combos.

Marla said...

I would choose one of the Two Ply Broken Heart skeins. A wonderful pink to knit up something special for the Knit For A Cure.

alittleweirdo said...

So many pretty yarns! The Endless Nameless is one of my favorites, and I find the name amusing too :)

vickie said...

i really love the Andromeda two and the tainted love. i like the Andromeda two because the colours r refreshing with the green shades and bold with the brown tones. also it reminds me of the tv show with Kevin sorbo because of the name.

I really like the Navajo 3-ply - Plum Honey. (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19477676) I love Navajo plying because of the way the colors keep their own identities while blending together.

cthulhulovesme said...

I'm kind of in love with the Batt-tacular Olive-Mint bulky. I'm not normally a bulky yarn fan, but the colors are fantastic.

My favorite item would be a $50 gift certificate to Kitty Grrlz shop! I would buy her Andromeda II Handspun Navajo 3-ply Yarn in Merino Wool. The greens and browns are so pretty. Kitty Grrlz handspinning is so even and beautiful!

Wow, what's not to love at that shop? If I had to choose, it might be the beautiful bamboo in dragonsong.

Knitmomma said...

Oooh, that was tough! I love the bamboo singles, but right now my favorite is Andromeda II Handspun Navajo 3ply Yarn Merino Wool 275 yards, as it fits a project I am planning up!

mamakin said...

I want to live in the shop! i've never knit with bamboo & would love to try Beautiful Bamboo single ply Summer Shades Light and Stormy Night-can't make up my mind-love em both. Also saw Kitty Singles-FANG-made me think of my daughter's fav place in Ireland & our girl's night watching True Blood lol-guess that makes it a gotta have. I've already bookmarked it and it's going on Facebook!

CarrieM said...

Oh my, one of my favorite Etsy shops to go and drool! I have had this shop at the top on my list of Etsy places to buy from for a while, as I really really like her 3 ply Navajo.

Some of the favs? Plum Honey, Endless Nameless, Andromeda II, Blue Copper Night. I do like the single ply Manly, Yes. Just lovely!

Steam957 said...

I love the Beautiful Bamboo - Very Berry Blues, the colors are great! Really loved all the colorways!!! Very hard to pick a fav.

Drooling over most of Bobbi's yarns, but today the Midnight Blooms particularly caught my eye. Seacell is so smooth and cool, it makes me dream of summer.
