Extreme Spinning Giveaway!




You all know I'm a huge Extreme Spinning fan. Well, she's got an amazing sale going on in her shop right now, and I just had to let you all know about it. It's a buy one get one 60% off! It excludes here spin along listing.
If you're not into spinning- CJ's handspun yarns are out of this world. Even if you do spin, you should really experience them!
Everything in CJ's shop is created in small batches and she does a lot of limited run colorways. Pictured above are a sneak peek at June's samples! The top photo is Milk fiber!! A generous sampling of creamy, silky milk fiber in her "Sable Island" colorway. She also sent in some scrumptious batts- pictured is "Lobster for dinner". Since CJ is originally from Maine- maybe we should say Lobstah!
CJ is gearing up for a huge fiber release on Saturday with lots more listings ( a little birdie told me silk, milk, and lots more hard to find fibers!) but what is in her shop now will be gone! You can find out more at her blog.
We're giving away this wonderful roving (20.5 micron means soft like buttah!!) to a random commentor below. Just visit Extreme Spinning, find something you like and write about it below. We'll be drawing for a winner tomorrow and incidentally, tomorrow is when her sale ends (midnight).
I will count your social networking about this as extra entires- just let me know you did it!
CJ, you're awesome! We love ya!

I have been coveting the green beans also... may have to add to my stash! Her fibers are amazing, I have some of her milk fiber and it rocks.

I was actually at CJ's site checking out what she had and what she's had in the past and my goodness I could just die for Deep Into the Night Purple Milk Latte Top Roving.

I love that her dyes are organic and that she cares where her fibers come from.

I love the idea behind the read/spin-along. Those fiber are increadibly gourgous and I'm a lit nut so the fact that they are book inspired is just an added bonus. I'm going to post about the giveaway on facebook too :)

I've purchased fiber from Extreme Spinning before and I promise it's all fantastic! I had to look through the site fast, because things are flying off the shelf (really, that's how pretty they are), but I was impressed by the Monin Melon XSive Bumpy Bulky Orange Green Handspun Yarn. Too cute!

cthulhulovesme said...

The Green Beans soysilk looks yummy. I'm sorry I won't be able to try for this month's box, because that sample looks fantastic, too.

I'm with everyone who said that the spin and read along was a brilliant idea. The Perfect Storm is gorgeous.

brownbear said...

I like the colors in oranges and grapes. The perfect storm looks so nice and shiny too.

Rachel Suntop said...

I just love Aruba and the Perfect Storm. Gorgeous colors! I visit Extreme Spinning's store often and always find lots of beautiful things.

Julia said...

I love the Brianna roving in red, orange, yellow. I enjoyed spinning my Brianna roving from the April box. I've posted the mini skein I made and a link to Extreme Spinning and Phat on my blog.

Robin said...

I love the Midori Melon XSive Socks Organic Merino. I put it on my faves list. I love yarn from extreme spinning.

Turtle said...

so many fun color combos of both fibers and yarn but i love the oranges and grapes. It reminds me of this little purple cottage with orange tiger lillies that used to surround it.I used to love this little cottage and would drea of living there someday.

Anita said...

Great stuff! All of it. My fave would have to be the Green Beans Soy Silk top.

OMG her stuff is awesome! I'm spinning some of her goodies that I traded for right now!

I'm not sure what my favorite is right now, but I would take her batts and spin them any day of the week!

Can't wait to see what new and exciting ones you come up with :)

LITTLE FAWN Taupe Natural Spinning Batt - it just looks so squishy!

Araignee said...

I want to take a nap in Little Fawn!

RA's Window to the World said...

The Midori Melon XSive Socks Organic Merino 400 plus yards 100 grams Green Yarn is luscious. I'm wondering how much fiber is needed to make 400 yards of yarn? The color is extraordinary.

trh said...

Right now there isn't much in there because of the sale, but her batts are always so gorgeous and always have such wonderful color combos in them. I've never spun from a batt tho, so I'm a little afraid to buy a big one. I do have one of her batts from the May box that I just haven't been brave enough to do anything with - maybe today. Once I know I can do it . . .

theknittinglamb said...

Tequila is totally my color...and it turns out she's local for me! Awesome.

PenelopeRose said...

The LITTLE FAWN Taupe Natural Spinning Batt with Merino, Alpaca, Bamboo and Angelina looks like it would be fun to spin.

AnneMarie said...

I moan for Monin Melon! I would knit that up right this second!

rebelhousewife said...

I like this one best BOGO SALE LITTLE FAWN Taupe Natural Spinning Batt with Merino, Alpaca, Bamboo and Angelina beautiful colors.

RiverPoet said...

Everything CJ makes is great - but keep an eye on the shop for the milk latte fiber. Now that is some awesome stuff!

psalm127 said...

I love the Midori Melon XSive Socks Organic Merino 400 plus yards 100 grams Green Yarn. That color green is yummy and my oldest daughter would die for a pair of socks made out of it.
