Poly Art Girl and *Giveaway*





Wow! Are you ready for this?! Crys of Polyartgirl has sent in some lustrous and luxurious fiber for the April box. Bamboo and a new fiber on the market, milk!
In February, Crys sent in some beautiful red locks and she's outdone herself this month!
Every time I visit her shop, I feel a sense of calm wash over me. Her colors are spectacular and the quality of her fiber is top drawer!
Crys is also co- director for the SLV folk Festival! I wish I lived closer, as that looks like it would be an extra fun event to attend!
Up for grabs is the beautiful warm and earthy hand combed bamboo, ramboulliet, mohair and angelina rovings. They total 1 3/4 oz and are so yummy! Please visit Polyartgirl and find something you like. Post about it below here and you'll be entered in the drawing on Thursday. Want to be counted twice? Use twitter, plurk, facebook, your blog or other social network to get the word out about Crys' wonderfully beautiful shop! Just let me know you did!
Thank you so much Crys! I adore your work, and I hope you will continue to contribute to Phat Fiber!

Oh, good grief, I can't possibly choose -- blues/greens/purples are my favorite colors, and practically everything she has falls in those colors!!! If I have to pick one, I guess the Dream colorway, but seriously...can I have them all?!?

ohh me me me! I love the raspberry handspun!

Strike My Fancy said...

My fave is Oceanic Daydream - I'm a sucker for the blues/teals/browns color combination. I can say from experience, too, that spinning these types of rovings with the alpaca blended in is a real pleasure!

idyll hands said...

I loved the BFL locks I got from her in February in the box and have already used some up! I'd love to get more so my favorite thing from her shop would be the locks in the Rain colorway: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20871765

Buckette said...

The Oceanic Daydream looked heavenly. So soft. *Sigh*

Dani said...

Oh, definitely Purple People Eater - I LOVE purple, and those are some of my favorite fibers!

Tami said...

SO RIDICULOUSLY GORGEOUS! I love that dream colorway...just wanna swim in it!!! LOL

wfoster said...

Call me a plain Jane, but I love the marshmallow creme (I'm also a sucker for white flowers...), though if I had to pick something colored it would be the Spring Colorway. It's been a long winter here and anything green is currently striking my fancy! (And I love the ringlets in locks!)

primdollie said...

Jags said...

i spun up the Feb locks and love them!!

I really like the purple people eater set, it would be fun to play with matching fibers!

ZombieCat said...

I looked no further than Equinox, so sexy!

wfoster said...

(Forgot to mention I spread the love on facebook, too. Hope my yarn-y friends check it out!)

I love the buttered beans.

Knitmomma said...

I just can't decide between On Fire ( http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23648236 ) and Equinox ( http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23222406 )!!! So lovely...

BeckyS said...

I have wanted to try out milk fibre for ages.. so my vote goes to the milk.

Darcys Knotty Knitter said...

amarkonmywall said...

the ocean dream looks like just that and while the milk fiber is fascinating to me and I'd love to try spinning with it, I finally fell to the side of the ocean dream mixed fiber roving because, you know, I felt. Milk fiber can't possibly felt, can it? No cuticle...Her fibers are beautiful!

rebelhousewife said...

Wow, it is all yummy. I think if i had to choose I would say the Dream color in the milk fiber blend. I haven't tired spinning that yet and it is on my list to try.

Nightphoenix said...

Her handspun yarn Night Fire is gorgeous! I can imagine it knitting up into an awesome chunky scarf.

Erin said...

Wow! I love the Equinox fiber--absolutely beautiful. Her handspun is lovely as well. Great shop!

Janelle said...

That Purple People Eater is most intriguing...

Heather said...

I have to say that the sea smoke handspun just CALLED to me!

Beki said...

Wow the Sea smoke yarn is lovely. What a complex and elegant mix of colors!

I'm just getting into spinning so I may be over my head but I'd like to try for the prize to build my stash... even if I might be a bit afraid to use such fine fibers for a while.

PogKnits said...

I love the Raspberry superwash handspun!

edina said...

Love the milk fiber in the Dream colorway!

I love the Dream colourway - esp. in the milk fiber. Also amazing is the Cooling bamboo, and the Equinox merino blend. I love the rich colours.

SupaCindy3000 said...

I love the Pinto Valley Treasure. So gorgeous!

cthulhulovesme said...

I really like the Cooling bamboo fiber. I've never spun bamboo before, so I'm kind of curious as to what it spins like.

madonnaearth said...

She's got this vehemence handspun fuchsia yarn with shots of lime and blue mixed in. Plus, there's another handspun called Pinto Valley Treasure that's a dark blue with beads spun into it. It reminds me of dark water. Love it!

jennifer said...

Oeanic Daydream....sigh......

Melissa said...

Ooo La la! Pinto Valley Treasure Handspun. It's the last poet in her shop. The best for last?

I am so tempted by that bamboo roving - hope I get a sample so I can see if I can spin.

The Broms said...

Oooooo... I'm still slightly intimidated by unspun but I love the Butterbean Homespun! What a lovely mix of greens :)

Jeigh said...

you can make yarn from milk?!?! That's pretty darn amazing. I definitely have a yarn crush on the Dream colorway in polyartgirl's etsy shop. Those blues and greens are gorgeous. 2nd fave is the purple people eater.

Natalie said...

I would love to get my hands on her Exuinox fiber!

I love the Vehemence hand spun yarn! It looks like it would be amazing to knit with!

I've mentioned this contest on Ravelry and Facebook as well!

I'm hoping tomorrow will be a lucky day for me with at least one of these contests! After that test I'm to take this afternoon, I'll definitely be needing an upper!

Monica said...

I adore the raspberry handspun. So gorgeous =)

Elizabeth said...

Dream colorway--because I love blues and greens

PenelopeRose said...

Ooooh, the Equinox - Wool, Merino, Mohair, Angelina, Tencel - 2 1/4 oz looks so dreamy I'm going to have to choose it. I can just imagine how gorgeous that would be spun up!
