Bunky Bobos and *Giveaway*








Bunky Bobos is a charter member of Phat Fiber- we saw her amazing yarn debut in January's box. March's box had some really deliciously dyed worsted weight yarn samples as well as her famously wonderful lip balm! Did you know Sandy includes a lip balm with every yarn order? How much more an you sweeten the deal?
Sandy has been a busy busy bee- I just popped in to her shop and it is chock full of yarn- each one I would be beyond thrilled to own. The woman has mad dyeing skills- which is why I commissioned her to create a colorway for the phat shop called "Miranda". She used a special heathered base yarn and it came out stunning!
Sandy sent me an amazing package to give away to you, a lucky commenter here. 2 full skeins of her "Phat" colorway (squee!) in worsted weight, a famous bunky girl lip balm, and a hand crafted soap from the blue ridge mountains in bergamot mint (yummy!). All you have to do, is visit Bunky Bobos and find something you like, write about it here below and that counts as your entry- post again if you tweeted or blogged about this contest so I'll count you twice. Remember, I"ll need to find you somehow in case you win so make it easy on me and leave your Rav or twitter id along with your post. Drawing will be held on Tuesday!
Thank you so much Sandy, for creating these gorgeous yarns for us to covet!

Love the Elderberry and the St. Crispin's Day sock yarns . . . gorgeous colors she dyes!

wenat said...

I can't decide between Henry V and Nyx -- they're both beautiful!

MissMoosey said...

Heck, I love everything! I love how there are yarns at both ends of the spectrum. There are yarns which are beautiful, subtle colors like Miami Vice or Nyx. And then there are yarns which are practically neon (not for a knitting wallflower), like Lemon/Lime Snowcone and Summer Lovin'. And I love them all!

Mara said...

I really like St. Crispin's day. Loverly!

Oh, the sock yarn - I still dream about making my first pair of socks!
Gorgeous dyes...wow!

Oh man I love the Henry V colourway. Its so gorgeous!
I got some lip balm in my box. It was blueberry scented which I unfortunately don't like (blueberries) but the texture of the lip balm was AWESOME. I gave it to my fiance who loves it. The ingredients in her lip balm are a GREAT blend

The Elderberry colour is fab. I mainly have greens and blues in my stash and now I realise what I'm missing out on. Think the 3ply would make a great Clap (shame I have too many project on the go at the moment)

I really love the Miami Vice worsted and the St.Crispin sock.

The Miami Vice seems very springy to me. I can't wait for the sunshine to come back to KC!

Miami Vice is so beautiful! It looks like a dolphin with the subdued blues and grays!

burnt rain said...

I have a sneaking suspicion that people are buying some of the colourways listed above but I think that is the point of this and AWESOME (even if it means I sadly cannot see elderberry which I am certain I would have loved). That being said, I am drawn to the long neck yarn ( http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22452606 )
Maybe it's because it's named after my favourite dinosaur.. maybe it's because I've recently become obsessed with yellow. WHO knows. But it looks awesome. Anyways, that's all I got. thanks for the contest!

Oooh! What pretty colorways!

I particularly like Long Neck (which is funny, because it is so NOT my usual color family!) and Elderberry Wine (which is). Yum!

Beki said...

Grand Lake is my favorite and well named. Hubby vacationed at Grand Lake with his grandparents when he was little - so he might not protest if it were to find it's way into the house... hmmmm.... ;o)

Um, I would take it all, lol. If I truly had to pick just one, I think I'd go with St Crispin's Day.

Savannah said...

I loved the range of yarn available from subtle yarns to in your face yarns. It seems like there is something there for every mood and every inspiration. At the moment The Elderberry Wine sock yarn is just calling my name

I just adore the name of the shop - I think I'll be saying that in weird voices for the remainder of my workday to make time in the office go faster :)

I was instantly drawn to the sock yarn in St. Crispin's Day colors - LOVE LOVE LOVE those colors.

The Mully's said...

Oh, I'm sure yu know which colors I'm going to choose. Bad Pantsuit is delicious... Summer Lovin' is very glam... and It's not easy being green would look great in my sis's nursery. But, punk rock looks just that, and I don't know if I have the guts to use St. Crispin's Day.
Ther are all wonderfull!
(Miranda is very nice as well!)

Cathy said...

I really like the St. Crispin Day. It has a very special meaning to me and the colors are the same as the memory.

Cathy said...

tweeted on it as well

Nightphoenix said...

I lover her sock yarn, especially http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=19823727, but then again, I am always a sucker for hand-dyed sock yarn. This just looks so wonderful. It's begging to be knit into socks with a lace motif to remind you in the dead of winter that spring always manages to come around.

Jen said...

Holy Moly! I love her yarn. I just about lost it when I saw St. Crispin's Day. Mmmm.

Sharon Rose said...

OMG! I've been entering these contests for ages and never won one... I hope this is my lucky day! I'm crazy for the Dionysus and Elderberry Wine colors. And Nyx. Wow. Plus I am allergic to commercial lip stuff and most soaps (actually it's the petroleum products and the chemical fragrances in them) so I'd love to try yours!

JC said...

Bad Pantsuit is a definite win!

Turtle said...

very nice, i love the brightness of summer lovin and punk rock!!! I don't tweet but will blog!

Natalie said...

I adore the Punk Rock colorway!

Melissa @ Banana Migraine said...

I'm loving the Dionysus - it's gorgeous!

ZombieCat said...

I don't need to look any further than her Punk Rock colorway. Amazing! Love IT!

OxyMoronT said...

The "Long Neck" sock yarn is too cute! It totally looks like a giraffe!!

I love the Punk Rock sock yarn so much that I seriously got up and ran to see if I could make a pair of socks I've been wanting to make with one skein...Alas, they're knee-highs, so I'd need 2...I know that I could get 2, but I'm pretty sure my hubby would kill me if I spent that much on a pair of socks...lol! Now, I'm off to find a pattern that I CAN use only one skein...

alittleweirdo said...

Pretty colors, and it's great that she includes a lip balm with yarn purchases! You can never have too many lip balms ;) I think my favorite colorway would have to be Aphrodite.

Angie said...

Wow... fabulous colors! I love Elderberry, Bad Pantsuit and St. Crispin's Day. love the colors!!

Anita said...

Another tough one, I love everything! My fave is the Bad Pantsuit yarn, I mean, who doesn't need a bad pantsuit? SNOL

Your wine colors -- Elderberry and Dionysus are just amazing. I'm not much of a sock knitter -- I'll have to keep my eye out in case you do them in a little heavier weight yarn.

Best of luck with your shop!

I'm in love with Dionysus. Seriously. Elderberry Wine is beautiful too, but D is incredible.

Bad Pantsuit colorway made me laugh. The name brings up memories of exactly those colors on a pant suit. Yes this dates me, but who cares!
