Spincerely Yours and *Giveaway*







Sometimes, a sample will come in here and it makes my heart flutter and I get all jittery and I practically run to the computer and order more. That is what happened when the Spincerely Yours samples arrived this month!
Tamara sent in several little packets of her "Caireen" colorway and it literally made me stutter... sss sss soft! I will admit, as a novice spinner, I am a little intimidated by the tencel but I'm sure I'll get over that quickly when my package arrives!
I seriously want to paint my studio in "Caireen". It's all the earthy greens
rolled into one soft and shiny place. Speaking of soft and shiny places, Spincerely Yours is an absolute treat for the eyes! Tamara has put together blending packages- colors that look amazing next to each other so novice spinners like myself can experiment with plying and blending techniques without freaking out that it will look like throw up when finished.
I really can't tell you how excited I am about Tamara's shop. As if I don't stalk my postie enough, I've got added incentive in the next couple of days!
Tamara is so awesome, she sent in a 4oz package of "Caireen" for you to enjoy! Just visit Spincerely Yours, find something you like and comment about it below here! Leave a way for me to find you as we'll be drawing sometime late tonight! Tweeting and Plurking and other social networking avenues will net you second entries! Help get the word out about this wonderful "Phattie"!

OMG your colors are awesome! I think today my fave color is Sara's Window which is making me think of yummy fruit salad and yogurt for breakfast hehe

you don't happen plan on having 1 and 2oz rovings do you? It would take me ages to get through 4oz lol

Foxyie said...

i was lucky enough to trade some fiber with tamara when i first started spinning..it was awesome stuff!

I love the Superwash BFL Roving - Emerald City.. so nice!

Anaya said...

Oooh... I have to say, I am too intimidated by tencel to pick anything with it in it...

The thing I love most in her shop (Corrie Cross in Ariarhod) looks to have sold earlier this morning...

My next favorite would have to be the SW BFL in Emerald City.

Minou14 said...

The bicolor packs are a great idea! I really like Just Lime/Aphrodite. I also really like the Lemon with a Twist of Lime, especially since it will shine from the Tencel. Beautiful!

JC said...

I desperately, desperately want her Sarah's Window yarn. The last time I got some Spincerly, I loved it, but I wasn't a good enough spinner to do it justice. This time though... I know exactly what I'd do it with.

JC said...

oh, and it's jecrowley at ravelry or just follow me to my blog.

Lostchyld said...

I adore the Sara's Window colors. I need to learn to spin for this stuff.

Roo said...

Are you serious? There is no WAY I am going to her shop after seeing that amazing roving in your pictures! I wouldn't trust myself not to BUY anything, I am on a strict no spending rule! :) The Caireen is outstanding, and for me to get excited about GREEN is pretty darn rare. Not to mention the fact that it's Tencel... *sigh*

Em said...

I like the rumble. Emtempest at g mail . Com

Liz said...

Oh my, that is gorgeous! I'd love to be entered in the drawing!! :D

Carly said...

Wow, Jessie you're really tugging at my purse now. :) That Caireen is quite possibly the most beautiful thing I've ever seen!

I also love the BFL in Emerald City & Coralbells and the bicolor packs in Spring Pear/Orchid and Just Lime/Turquoise.

I tell you what - some serious spending is probably about to happen. Too bad Caireen isn't up in the shop (I guess I just have to cross my fingers and see if I can win it).

Turtle said...

love love love the colorways of this artist! Enchantress is lovely! (but the above fibers give me the warm fuzzies as well)

trh said...

OMG! I just so love all the bicolor packs! I'm so happy that I got the new wheel but now I have to go spin, spin, spin until I get the 'practice' fiber out of the way so I can go buy some more 'real' fiber to spin!!!

What does everyone make with the small amounts of handspun?

cindy said...

I'm torn between the Butterscotch and the Lemon with a Twist of Lime...they're all so scrumptious, really.

Lacemoth said...

Just about any Merino-Tencel, but especially the Aqua Velvet / Aphrodite! Yum!

KnitWit said...

EVERYTHING in her shop is gorgeous! I especially love the "Coralbells" SW BFL roving.

ikkinlala said...

I like almost everything in her shop, but I especially love the Superwash Merino Roving - Rumble.

Silverstah said...

Love, love, love! Her colors are SO pretty! I think my favorite, though, is 'Butterscotch Sky'. :)

sunnie fairy said...

Wow, you are having a lot of giveaways! :] I love the just lime roving!

Hallie said...

The orchid and aqua look just like cotton candy! Yummy!

To the twitter! (hallacemalice)

RogueKnits said...

Wow. So pretty. I love the Sarah's Window colorway. That merino/tencel looks just yummy!

Cindy said...

I'm very partial to Emerald City. It is so pretty and surprising that I'm drawn to the greens. This is new to me.

beckyspapercreations said...

It is all gorgeous and I absolutely love butterscotch.

These colors are amazing!

Claire said...

Oh wow, I love the Just Lime and Aphrodite. In fact, I love it so much, I just bought it. Oops!

cthulhulovesme said...

I absolutely love the Caireen sample you have up there, but in the shop, the Superwash BFL Roving - Emerald City has my eye. I LOVE green, and I'm desperate to see if I can get in on the next Phat Fiber box now.

edina said...

Love all the colors - but especially the superwash merino/tencel Sarah's Window roving!

carrym said...

I'm a novice spinner myself, just bought my first wheel, but spinning is already addicting! I love the Superwash Merino/Tencel Roving, Bicolor Pack - Just Lime/Aphrodite!

loopykd said...

I think these colors are my favorite: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22210257. It looks like a rainbow. Very pretty. I love all this stuff and am happy to have learned of a new vendor. Thanks!

Islandgirl said...

Superwash Merino and Bamboo Hand Dyed Yarn in Enchantress is to die for! I love the combo of green and purple!

Lydia said...

So hard to choose but I think the Bicolor Pack - Turquoise/Lemon with a Twist of Lime is my favorite. :) I agree that visiting her shop is dangerous...

May said...

Oooh, I've been really slacking off in the fiber realm lately but the Sarah's Window colorway is making my mouth water. I feel inspired!

craftycrafter said...

I love Emerald City, the colors are beautiful and in my favorite fiber. But the Bi-color packs are amazing as well. Aqua Velvet and Aphrodite is my favorite of those.

I love your dye jobs.

Beautiful roving and yarn in the Spincerely etsy store. My favorite yarn is the "Superwash Merino and Bamboo Hand Dyed Yarn in Enchantress". And it's etsy sellers like Spincerely that make me think I really need to take up spinning!

Martha said...

The Spring Pear/Orchid combo, or the Sarah's widow both look wonderful

Maven said...

I am a huge fan of the color chartreusse and its varying hues! Good stuff!

monkeyspinner said...

Butterscotch Sky seems dreamy. But so do the samples she sent in they see like you would want to put them up on your walls.

girlwithasword said...

wow, it's all gorgeous! I'd go for the "Sarah's Window" first though..i love spinning tencel! :) girlwithasword at yahoo dot com

OxyMoronT said...

Oooh, oooh, I love it!! Since I don't spin, I would most like to get the Hand Dyed Bamboo in Enchantress!!! That is gorgeous!! But if I did spin, that bicolor pack in Spring Pear/Orchid looks delish!

Jennifer said...

I am on a real green kick lately (someone is tired of winter!!), so the Emerald City colorway really speaks to me!

I love the Enchantress yarn. It reminds me of a Monet painting. :-)

Fabulous colors! I love the two-color roving packs... it really opens up the possibilities for creativity. I love the Just Lime and Teal combo!

Sarah's Window is a gorgeous blend of colors! What a lovely yarn that will be when it's spun! All of the color combinations are perfect for spring,too!:)

brownbear said...

I almost don't want to say what I like the best because I don't want someone else to go buy it before I can decide. :)
I'm going to take the chance and say that the superwash and tencel in Sara's Window and the merino/bamboo yarn in enchantress are my favorites.

Northern Bay Handspun said...

I've been sitting here drooling over "Spring Pear/Orchid," "Orchid/Aqua Velvet," and "Aqua Velvet/Aphrodite." The colors just lift my spirits while we're still here deep in snow and 9 degrees. Thank you for the bright joy you've created.

Sarah's Window for me please. While it doesn't make me think of breakfast........the colors are so relaxing. A Spring Morning........trees and flowers budding. Hummingbirds returning and dew hanging in the air.....

The rule for this contest was to find one thing and comment on it from Spincerely Yours, well there is no way I could find just one. That is some beautiful and bright roving! Delicious!

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

So many wonderful choices, I had to play eeny meeny to pick just one. It's Butterscotch Sky.

One Sheep said...

Take me to the Emerald City! I'd throw water on a dozen wicked witches for that.

SusanSW said...

Tamara's colors are great but my favorite has to be her Superwash Merino/Tencel Roving, Bicolor Pack in Just Lime and Turquoise. Those two colors together are absolutely outstanding and just knock my socks off!

Catalina Glass said...

Theleia is a colorway I especially like- the purple and green are just right for spring.

Sarah said...

I think I might love the Champagne SW Merino/Tencel blend the most. Of course the SW BFL Coralbells is another beauty.

Heather said...

Caireen is just gorgeous and I love love love Emerald City!
