I have never seen the northern lights. It is definitely on my bucket list though. The mere name "Alaksa" is a dreamy whisper on my tongue as I imagine myself standing on a thawing tundra overlooking an icy blue ocean in the distance.
Northern Ligts Fiber Company started life as "The felted sheep" so you may remember Kelsey from her former shop name. NLFco has contributed to three boxes so far- the third being April so look for her delicious yarn in your "Eco/Green" boxes!
I really love Kelsey's eye for color- her palette is so broad! Find exactly what you need in her shop- both bright and vibrant colorways and more subdued earthy tones can be found right next to each other.
I have been especially enjoying Kelsey's blog lately, where I've learned she has just finished spinning/knitting vests for her two adorable sons. After just browsing past posts she was writing about how her husband John "squishes her yarn" when she asks him to. I asked Marcus to squish her giveaway yarn just moments before I read that! Hee hee- I think we can safely say her yarn is very squishable.
Kelsey was so sweet to send in a giveaway with her April samples! Up for grabs are 2 50gram (180 yards) skeins of sport weight yarn (a shiny 50% tencel and 50% superwash merino blend) in her delicious "Soufriere" colorway- which is stunning! In order for you to win (drawin held Tuesday) you should visit her shop find something you like, and post about it below here. Remember I will count your tweets, plurks, blogposts and forum posts as double entries! I'm also going to need to hunt you down when you win- so post your Rav id or other identifying mark so I can find you.
Thank you so much, Kelsey for sending your beautiful wares in for us to sample! We hope you will continue to contribute to Phat Fiber!
