Dicentra Designs and *Giveaway*
Dicentra Designs seriously rocks my world! Lisa, the dye GODDESS of Dicentra, sent me two of her Merino/Angora spinning fibers in "Damask" and I was going to wait to do this giveaway until I finished spinning it- but I just can't!! I love Lisa's shop so much and I'm so excited about this giveaway, I just had to include it in the "Phatties Rock" week giveaways!
If you have experienced Lisa's samples, you understand when I say that beholding them, I got a rush of excitement over the masterful way the colors were combined and the superior quality of the fiber!
I am halfway through the "Damask" fiber and I'm taking a cue from a fellow Phattie and spinning it fingering weight singles- I am hoping to knit up a shawl. The angora makes this a yarn with an irreproachable and divine quality about it.
Did you know that Dicentra will be at the Black Sheep Gathering in June? For all of you lucky folks headed that way, be sure and look Lisa up! I'm sure she'll be easy to spot- with all of her gorgeous color!!!
Lisa was so kind to offer up this stunning 2.5 oz Merino/Angora spinning fiber in her "Edoras" colorway as a giveaway! Please visit Dicentra and find something you like. Post about that listing in the comments section below. I will be drawing for this giveaway on Friday, and for those of you who use twitter, facebook, blogs or other socical networking sites, let me know you've helped spread the word about this stunning shop, and I will count your entry twice.
Lisa, thank you so much for the privelege of spinning your gorgeous fiber, and for sending in your artistry in the box. We look forward to your June samples!
