Seven Yaks Super Giveaway!




Have you visited Seven Yaks lately? There are some 15 pages full of yarnie and fibery wonderfulness!
Lynne has been busy recovering from an appearance at the Great Lakes Fiber show and will be listing some items that made it home with her soon!
I recently stocked up on some knitting needles and a spinning diz and it must have made it's way to the bottom of my fiber bin- I haven't had a chance to use it and I'm waiting for my stash bin to cough it back up. You wouldn't know anyone else with stash problems, would you? *wink*
Seven Yaks sent in the most beautiful fuchsia colored cashmere noils in the May box! So soft, it made me want to go buy a drum carder!
We're starting the weekend off right, and giving away both a beautiful Seven Yaks art batt and a fantastic diz/wpi gauge tool! I live in a college town, and our weekends begin on Thursdays :D Remember- all the really smart college kids juggled their class schedules to have Fridays off?
::looks sheepishly over her sholder::
::cue chirping crickets::

Mmmkay! Everyone visit the lovely Seven Yaks shop, and find something you like. Write about that something in the comments section below. I will randomly (as in random.org) select a lucky commenter on Monday to win this awesome batt and diz tool! All of you awesome folks who twitter, plurk, facebook and blog about this giveaway will get extra entries!

Lynne, you're just wonderful- you know that? Keep up the awesome work!

Loving the cashmere noils - is there anything better than pink + green + cashmere?!?

Cashmere noils sound awesome! I've spun with silk noils and thought they added super cool texture, so I can only imagine cashmere would be similarly fun.

Also intrigued by the tunisian crochet hooks. I have to admit I've been keen on trying tunisian crochet since I've seen some awesome projects on Ravelry.

I absolutely love the roving in color "Aster" - I have a thing for pinks, purples, roses... anything girly and this is certainly girly. It would look great spun up!

My8kidsmom said...

I was lucky enough to get a Seven Yaks diz in a phatfibe box, LOVE(10000) It's the only one I use now!

tracethekat said...

Wow! The blue and white bead stitch markers are beautiful! I'm lusting and I don't really even use stitch markers!

CptSnoopy on Ravelry said...

I have loved the snowflake knitting needle gauge for a while. I will have to order....

Emily said...

My hubby bought me 2 sizes of 7 Yaks sock blockers for my birthday! I love them...they aren't wood, so it doesnt matter if the socks are damp. Plus, they were "oopsies", so he got a fabulous deal! At the time I was super in love with the snowflake needle guages and...well...everything! It's a beautiful shop!

Dani said...

I love the awesome needle gauges and WPI tools, so fun!

HanamiGallery said...

the wool roving in peacock looks awesome, but so does the cashmere noils!! im sure my cats though would love the felted toys!!haha thanx for showing us a great shop!!

Maven said...

Everything there is covet-worthy!

I love the bamboo tunisians (I'm really into tunisian lately), and the cashmere noils? Yummy... I can see myself recombing that and blending it with some Cormo a friend RAK'd me.

Good stuff!

I've always thought her diz and needle gauge selections are wonderful! The heart shaped one is my favorite. I also like the rovings sold in smaller sizes and mix and match packs for felting or 4oz sizes for spinning. If I ever get a drum carder, I may have to try some of those cashmere noils too!

TNTknits said...

Wow! I love not one, but three things at this shop. Who could resist cashmere noils? And the WPI/Diz combo is adorable. Finally, the "Spinning is my Alchemy" plaque would be perfect for my craft room.

Jude said...

Since I am just learning to spin and also just found out what a diz does, I like the diz's! Ingenious!

PogKnits said...

I love the heart shaped needle gauge

jennifer said...

I like a lot of stuff in her shop, but the cashmere noils look very interesting. Must put those on my list of stuff to try.

She is the only person I know who sells cashmere! Thats my fave part.

angel1mara said...

The cashmere looks like it would be fun to play with. The spinning tools are also impressive.

mamahoov on Rav said...

What?! Find something you like?!? How about one of each! The vibrant roving colors are to dye for!! Especially the marigold. I love the whimsy of the snowflake gauge tool and the diz with the Yaks logo is fab! amy in ne

Bumble said...

Sock blockers! As one who knits socks by the dozens, sock blockers are always high on my list of finds.

Carlin said...

They are completely irrelevant to any projects I am working on but the Lampwork Glass Beads are stunning.

tstept2 said...

Love those pink and green cashmere noils...perfect color combo! Love the peruvian merino hanspu, looks so squishy!

BeckyS said...

Oh my... so many beautiful things. I have to say the sock blockers and needle gauges are my favorite, but who wouldn't love the cashmere fibre too?

Katherine said...

I hardly know where to start I love the colrs, the spck blockers, the geisha shawl pin i will be shopping there

Jags said...

I love her stuff! I'm using a heart shaped diz that I've gotten from the box, and gave another one to a friend!

I've been wanting to try her roving, but haven't had a chance yet, maybe soon!

That batt is gorgeous too!

Breien in Lansingerland said...

I am absolutely stunned by the green roving she has in her store. Awesome!

I love the snowflake knitting needle gauge - wouldn't that make a great stocking stuffer? :)

Buckette said...

I will have to agree with everyone on the cashmere noils this time. The Mix and Match roving sounds like a great idea for beginners like myself.

I did dip slightly into my pocket and bought a pair of circular needles, but I needed them, you understand. . . right?

I blogged about this giveaway to make up for my indiscretion. Hee!

superwoman_4002 said...

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the Shawl pin - Black Floral ... its so lovely!! :)

Eileen said...

I love the stitch markers, the dog & butterfly ones are adorable! Wish I could spin, the fibers look yummy!

Dragomeira said...

I love the Lampwork Glass Bead - Orange Cube. It is super cute!!!

Heather said...

I love the cashmere noils, but I'll pick the heart-shaped gauge as my favorite -- it's just so cute and clever!

Rachel Suntop said...

I love the cashmere noils fiber and some of the lampwork glass beads the best. I also think it's really cool that there is such variety in the shop including beads, yarns, fiber, ceramics, tools, accessories, etc. An impressive collection!

HODGEPODGESPV said...

i am in love with the shawl pins...all of them!!! i want all of them...ok, i'll lock on the roses one...the design and colors are so delecate and bright against the black. i had to mark this site as a fav. now if she only had more of that roving spun up for me who does not spin, i would be such a happy camper!

Turtle said...

love the kitty toy kits! anytime someone has thought things through for me, i love it!

blogged!

RiverPoet said...

The thread winders are great for storing bits of singles or test yarns in an organized way. And, they look cool!

cthulhulovesme said...

I got some of the pink cashmere noil in my Phat box this past month, and it's really lovely. I think I'd be tempted to go for the natural if I were to make a purchase, though-- better for blending.

sciteacher said...

I don't even know where to begin,there are so many fantastic things in this shop! I need to pick up a diz/wpi gauge, and the tools at Seven Yaks are the most creative and whimsical I've ever seen. I was enjoying looking at the tools ... when I noticed the Amphora Vessel lampwork bead.

I know I'm a geeky science teacher, but I also have a background in Art History, so I'm qualified to say this: That is one awesome bead!

Ooohing and ahhing over the sock blockers and the needle gauges...think I need a needle gauge, but I need to decide between the octagon and the heart shapes!

Nancy said...

The wool roving - Iris really caught my eye. It looks like it would spin up into some really great yarn!

Creations By Hand said...

I have every size of the Tunisian crochet hooks and I love them. The are a great length and the yarn slides over them perfectly. They are easy on the hands. I would love to get some sock blockers next.

Katie said...

I love the pink and green cashmere noils!

Tina said...

Only one thing? Oh, dear.

I really need the spinning wall plaque. *counts days until payday*

But the knitting one may need to keep it company...and the cats do need more toys..

PenelopeRose said...

Oh boy, wouldn't any one of the Cashmere Noils be fun to play with!! Great shop!

Wendy said...

I love the heart shaped diz so much I just bought one!

That combo WPI gauge and diz is pretty nifty, though I like the sock blockers too.

All these wool rovings are so beautiful! The colors are just great! Awesome saturation on all the colors, but my favorite is the Aster - just amazing!

I just love the bluegrass roving...is it blue? Is it green? It's enchanting.
