Black Tie Fiber Arts and *Giveaway*




How sweet is was to open a package from Black Tie Fiber Arts this past weekend and see a little gift for me! Jessica- the spinning maven behind Black Tie Fiber Arts spun up a beautiful skein of corriedale called "Confetti"- I love it! I think it will become a little hat or purse.
Jessica's shop is just full of beautiful handspun! I love her Avocado yarn!

She also makes the cutest stitch markers- both crochet and knit! This month in your boxes, look for both handspun and stitch marker samples!

Jessica sent in a beautiful skein of super-soft handspun called "Antique Roses". It's a super sqooshy and soft 90 yard skein that would be just perfect for a cowl or some next to skin project! We're giving this beauty away to a random commentor here on the blog! Just visit Black Tie Fiber Arts and find something you love. Write about it below and we'll draw for the giveaway on Friday! Be sure and plurk, tweet, and facebook because I'll count those as extra entries!

Thank you, Jessica for sending in beautiful samples and for treating me extra special! You made my day!

I am partial to "Sooper Squoosh Handspun Yarn- Summer Sky". It is a perfect match for the signature color of a very good friend of mine and gives off good vibes; they just seep through the keyboard. Plus, I am kind of jonesing for summer...:)

brownbear said...

I love the Avocado yarn. Seagreen is pretty too.

Jan L said...

I especially like the soft loop of the stitch markers. Snagless is always a real plus.

Don't enter me in the drawing, I live 3 blocks away and rummage through her stash in person lol

She asked me one day to think of a name for the blue/black yarn and the first thing that popped in my head was "Emo Tears" I was being silly, but I'm glad everyone finds the name as funny as I do!

Martha said...

The avocado or the mermaid hair, definitely.

Jeigh said...

I love love love the cherry sisters handspun yarn. I bet it's super soft

Roma said...

Sea green is beautiful, but I love the name Mermaid Hair!

falcondance said...

The Cherry Sisters Handspun Yarn is really pretty - and i normally don't go for orange!

trh said...

I like the warrior yarn - great color combo.

mamakin said...

What gorgeous stitch markers. I'm in love with #6,#7,#10 & #11. They're a Celtic theme & made so beautifully. They're more art than st. markers. And Jessie, I'm loving your Confetti yarn, so knit fast before I can hop a plane & snatch it from you :-)

rebelhousewife said...

Oh the Warrior EasyCare Handspun for sure.

PogKnits said...

I want cherry sisters yarn!

I'm torn between the Seagreen and Mermaid Hair yarns -- love both those colorways. And the limited edition stitch markers are cute; I'd like to use them on a necklace or charm bracelet.
