Moonlight and Laughter giveaway!




Happy Birthday, Marilla!!
I wish you all could have seen me open the May Moonlight and Laughter samples! You would have seen my jaw drop a few times! I love love love this shop!
Ok, I know it was probably wrong of me, considering this was the sample she sent in this month, but I just snatched her "Rainbow Connection" yarn right out of her shop. If someone doesn't buy the "Marilla's Garden" roving, I'm going to go back and get it- and I won't feel guilty about it either, because here I am- telling you how awesome it is! Lime Greens, deep purples, a sunny nasturtium color and with hand dyed firestar to mix in for some bling! This roving is gorgeous.
Moonlight and Laughter is one of those hidden gems of etsy- once you've bought from Marilla, it is easy to make it a habit!
Marilla is so generous, she sent in 4 oz of her hand painted super squishy superwash roving in the "Marilla's Garden" colorway as a giveaway! Just visit her shop, and find something you like (she's open to custom orders!) and post about it below. I will draw a random name on Friday, and remember I will count your extra tweets, plurks, facebook updates and blogposts as extra entries! Help spread the happiness!
Thank you so much, Marilla for the opportunity to purchase the most amazing rainbow colorway yarn I have ever seen. You Rock.

If I hadn't already spent my fiber budget (twice), I would so be buying that Blue Mountain River roving . . . or the Marilla's Garden. Next month for sure.

PogKnits said...

I love this one, it's a green bulky weight yarn

nestra said...

Ohhh, Golden Slumbers is beautiful!

cthulhulovesme said...

Marilla's Garden is indeed gorgeous, but so are Golden Slumbers (spinning fiber) and Blue Mountain River (fiber).

I do like the Marilla's Garden, but I think my favorite is the worsted weight,"Limelight". I can't resist purples and greens together.

Okay, I don't normally speak up these days due to time constraints, but I am now elbowing my way through the crowd to the front. I love all of her stuff, but even more, Marilla is a really awesome, down to earth person... and I love, love, LOVE the name of her store, I've always been smitten with it since I laid eyes on it.

Blue Days and Green Nights looks like it would be fun to spin up! I am loving the Marilla's Garden as well (and hope I get a smidge of it in my box)!!

The shop is on my list of favourites and I check it every day or so.

I liked the April Phatfiber roving the best...the colors are beautiful. Also love the color combos in the yarns; they are great!

Minou14 said...

I would love to win this giveaway! I have a nice bag of "Storm Before the Calm" roving I just purchased from Marilla and I love it. In her shop, I really like the "Blue Mountain River". The way her colors blend is soothing and lovely and I have to remind myself that I should spin my roving instead of just petting it. I keep it out so I can look at it whenever I walk by. :)

One Sheep said...

Love it!

Sally said...

I love the "Early Morning Rain" sock yarn. I also like that she carries a variety of weights in her shop...I love bulky weight yarn, but sometimes it is harder to find from independent artists.

I love the subtle touch of colors in the Superwash merino wool roving named "Golden Slumbers" ~
It reminds me of sunlight filtered through amber colored antique window panes. It left me imagining getting to spend time curled up with a good book in a sunny window seat.
