Desired Haven Farm and *Giveaway*









Misty from Desired Haven Farm has done it again. If you've seen her gorgeous March samples, you'll know what I'm talking about. I didn't actually weigh them, but these seemed to be nearly 50g and some of the prettiest handspun I've ever seen.
Misty is a very active member of our group and we all look forward to hearing about her latest animal updates. This woman really pours her heart and soul into caring for her animals. Desired Haven's etsy shop directly funds purchasing feed and other expenses of her fiber farm.
Misty sent in an absolutely gorgeously huge hank of heavenly handspun! It has a slight shimmer to it with nubs of various greens and deep blues. I am reluctant to let it go! If you don't win it- it can be found here.
Please visit Desired Haven Farm's shop and find something you like, post about it below, and you will be entered to win on Tuesday! I will count your extra efforts (tweets, blogs, plurks, facebook) to help me get the word out about Misty's shop as second entries in the pool. Leave a way for me to find you too (rav id or twitter name?) in case you win.
Misty, you know we love you! Keep on being your awesome self!

As usual, I'm drooling over roving again. I really like the Jade Green Alpaca Wool Blend because it is green and delicious-looking.

I didn't even have to go to Misty's shop to look as I've been there so many times already. Ever since the first time I visited her shop, I've been in love with Ocean Dapples. I got some of her WasteNotWantNot2 in my first box. I spun it and am using it in a project right now. I want more, more, more, MORE....

Off to my blog to write more....

This is by far one of my favorite samples. The Waste-Not-Want Not is my favorite in the shop right now, but I also loved the brown sample I received in my box. Would definately purchase if there was more of that in the shop.

Nightphoenix said...

Well, having looked over the comments, I feel unoriginal. I too liked the Dragon Scales. Just that lush green... mmmmmmmmm

Plus, given that it is currently SNOWING (!!) outside, I think that makes the green a little extra appealing.
