Liberty Fibers and *Giveaway*
















Liberty Fibers sent in the most delicious fiber in last month's box. It was super soft and sparkly and I loved how you all spun it up! Judy O'Toole the one woman wonder behind Liberty Fibers, has set aside a listing in her shop just for those scrumptious samples- really they were almost an ounce so it was a generous 'sampling'!
Again, her March submissions are absolutely stunning. These colors speak to me! I got her box and started researching her some more online. I just love her blog. She takes beautiful photos of her surrounding Adirondack mountains and whatever else she is inspired by, and posts about them there. It is really a beautiful blog, and I'm glad I have her favorited now.
One of the many items I really pine away after is her sweater kit! I love her hand dyed "Labradorite" colorway and this kit looks like it wants to be just the yummiest sweater ever.
Do you have a favorite Liberty Fibers listing? If so, write about it below here, because Judy has sent in an amazingly soft and beautifully dyed hank of worsted weight alpaca (210 yds) in the most perfect-right-now for spring colorway. See above pics. Please visit Liberty Fibers and post about something you like below here. Remember to leave a way for me to find you should you win this indulgent yarn. I always count you for each additional post outside the blog (tweets, plurks, blogposts, forum posts etc) additional times- it's just another way you can help us spread the word about Judy and her amazing goods!
Thank you so much Liberty Fibers! We hope you will continue to let us sample your delicious yarns and spinning fibers!

Her hand dyed wool in Blushing Blue speaks to me but I'm on a diet for the rest of March! I bought wayyy too much after receiving February's box *lol*

Darcy said...

The Midnight Moonlight sockyarn makes me want to dance in the bluebonnets by the light of the moon ... or eat a lot of blueberries, all good!

I'll bookmark it for the kits. One of my life goals is to actually knit a sweater for MYSELF.

I am a brand new knitter, just now learning about quality fiber. I've yet to have the opportunity to work with such wonderful yarn, but boyhowdy, I'd love it!
The colorways I've seen are amazing!

Thank you, Phat Fiber, and thank you for letting us know over on Twitter!

OH my goodness! Her batts are lovely. Especially the Spring Sari colorway. I love the glitz she added (love sparkles). And I bet the silk will add a really neat texture and is super appropriate judging by the colorway.

Claire said...

Loving the mixed greens colourway fiber with the nylon glitz! Beeeyootiful! Gotta go twitter about that!

rebelhousewife said...

Again amazing stuff. I think the thrummed mitten kits are my favorite all of them, I want them all. I also like the hand dyed superwash roving, it is all so gorgeous, amazing colors. I will be adding this contest to my blog http://www.pixiefashions.wordpress.com

I love her sunset colorway. That is just delicious!

SupaCindy3000 said...

I love the Pirate Booty sock yarn color way. I'm not sure why, but lately I'm drawn to red/black yarn, which is different for me, and this one is yummy!!!

jennifer said...

Oooh, I love the Brown in the Mountains colorway. Very unusual and very eye catching!

Hallie said...

If I were to create a yarn based on my beloved Rocky Mountains it would look like the Purple Melon colorway. Right when I saw it I was struck by the purple of the mountains, the browns and greens reminiscent of our multitude of lichen varieties, the pinks like the millions of little flowers that pepper that landscape...paired with a vivid bright blue shirt for the sky and I would be the mountains!

What wonderful natural colors and tones in all of the work. Absolutely beautiful!

Off to post on my blogger :)

knitfrogrepeat said...

I love that Purple Mountain colorway! Gorgeous! But my favorite by far is the one you are giving away. Something about pinks and greens together always draws me in!

Susan said...

Liberty Fibers has some great stuff in their etsy shop. I really loved the colors in the yarn described as "A mix of lush greens, burgundy and brown hand dyed merino". Just lovely!

k8 said...

What beautiful stuff! Midnight Moonlight and Fireworks caught my eye, but that Forestwalk...I may be in love!!

Cindy said...

She has terrific stuff! I love the superwash sock yarn with no name, but it's black and yellow and burgundy. Gorgeous. I also love her thrummed mitten kits. So cool!

LilChickadee said...

Ooh... I really like the Merino Superwash Hand Dyed Sock Yarn in the "Fireworks" colorway. Such fun colors! I have been craving summer lately with all of the yucky cold here in Missouri this week - the colors totally make me think of picnics and BBQs... :)

Ooooh, the pink, lavender, & green Cascade Fixation yarn is NOMMY. Purple and green together makes me so incredibly happy and pink is my favorite color, so throwing that in there too just.... yeah. It's GORGEOUS.

Holy cow! What's not to like? The handpaints are gorgeous, and I love those carded batts. But I have to say, I think that the thrummed mitten kits were calling to me.

Anita said...

I love everything in her shop! I guess if I have to pick just one I'll say my fave is the merino/silk sherbert roving, looks good enough to eat! :)

OxyMoronT said...

Forestwalk and Mona Lisa for the win! I love any colorway that uses green in an artful way!! The Forestwalk jewel tones really do remind me of a forest, and I love how the Mona Lisa yarn captured the odd, otherworldly, ethereal tones in the painting...le sigh!

Beautiful!

I really love the Hand Dyed Falkland Wool Roving 4ozs. Brown in the Mountains Colorway. I don't know, I'm just really on a spinning kick lately-- I just bought about a pound of roving in different colorways this past week and I'm constantly lusting after more gorgeous wool.

I love the hand dyed BFL in colorway Pirate Booty!

mamakin said...

Oh, the gorgeous PURPLE MELON hand dyed superwash sock yarn has me speechless. It's every beautiful colorway I love and I'd love to find a way to make a shawl as well as socks out of that vision of a yarn.Before my accident I'd walk around the property & love to look for the beginnings of spring with crocuses, grape hyacinths, mini daffodils coming up & I was in heaven. These colors make me think of that...a nice memory...a beautiful yarn. Thanks for the giveaway Liberty Fibers & Jessie

brownbear said...

All the colors are gorgeous. I am seriously loving all the colorways. I think it's a three way tie between purple melon, purple batik, and the one that goes from super dark purple to butter yellow.

Laurie~Let's Knit It said...

All the spinning fibers are beautiful I love the Sunset colorway and I especially love this... Merino Superwash Hand Dyed Sock Yarn - Colorway Fireworks

The Landscape Sock Kits, the Pirate Booty yarn (for sure!) and the sock yarn that doesn't seem to have a name but is magenta/grape/butter yellow.

Lovely!
