Dyed by Danido and *Giveaway*











Dani is part of the Phat Fiber Posse! Yes, Phat Fiber has a posse. (Sorry, I had to find a way to incorporate Shephard Fairey with Phat Fiber in the same blogpost because I'm a real nerd. ) She submits samples religiously and this month, we're giving away a full skein of her sock yarn called "Field of Daisies". It was so funny when I received her February box and this was in there, because I had almost bought this yarn a few different times! Dani has a new awesome sock club called "Rock Your Socks Off". She chooses a band and creates really awesome colorways based on their music. What is also really very awesome about this club is you can purchase on a month-to-month basis and she lets us know which band she's doing next. Read Dani's blog to find out who she's doing for April.
I'm so excited Dani has taken up spinning! She's been listing some really nummy handspun and roving lately!
I'm very proud to be working with Dani and creating custom yarns for the Phat Shop- she's really easy to work with- I tell her my ideas and she makes them happen!
On to the giveaway! Please visit Dani's shop and find something you like. Post about it below here and we'll be drawing a name late Friday. Be sure and tweet, plurk, blog, etc about this contest for extra entries! Remember, I need to find you if you win, so throw me a bone and leave your rav id or other way of getting in contact with you ;)
Thank you so much Dani! You Rock.

Oooh, the Sanoran Sunset roving is sooooo pretty! I love all her colors but that one is really calling my name.

Why do I have to choose one????? I love the striped felted tote, the sunshine yarn and the braided mug wrap.

I'm just gluttonous, I guess.

the seascape lace is dreamy...

Roo said...

I don't need to be entered in the drawing, unfortunately yarn in general is so wasted on me, but I wanted to mention that in the short time that I've known Dani she has come so far as she's spreading her wings into different areas of the fiber business and I'm immensely proud of her, especially reading all the comments that are being left for her handspun. You go, girl!

ooo...i love the Wild Violets handspun yarn. the colors are stuning, and would look even better on my feet as socks.

Robyn said...

Everything is just lovely as everyone above has said. The seascape lace is the one that calls to me, which could be partly because I'm always looking for a way to combine my two loves: knitting and the ocean. Blog and tweet @onesweettart

Wendy said...

The Sunrise Handdyed Worsted is beautiful. It's so bright and sunny, just like a sunrise!

I'm in love with the Sonoran Sunset Roving . . . as soon as I get some practice spinning, I'm going to spend a bunch of money on rovings to spin . . . .

Minou14 said...

I love the Sunrise and Sunshine hand-dyed wools, but that Field of Daisies skein is gorgeous! The blue-green roving in the third photo on the blog is really pretty too. That would be a great sample to get!

OxyMoronT said...

Love it! I'm dying for some of that Sunrise and Sunset, and Kermit is just adorable! I don't know why I never thought of knitting a mug wrap before, but I will now! Also, man I would LOVE to join the Rock Your Socks Off club, but I'm pretty sure my hubby would kill me...!

Ah, the al-Chadir sock yarn, because it's green, and we all know how much I like green. Especially in March, when up here, there's no hint of green at all, except in the pine trees......
