Dawning Dreams Giveaway!



If you got a July box with a Dawning Dreams sample, you had the extra treat of opening one of these beautiful little packages. It was like a gift inside of a present!
Inside the beautiful hand crafted boxes were some of Dawn's elegant stitch holders and shawl pins!
I have said it before, but I just really love the simplicity of Dawn's work. She is a knitter herself and understands that after spending countless hours creating an intricate knitted or crocheted piece, you would like to show off your handiwork, not a flashy closure.

Dawn's shop has blossomed recently to include some amazing carded batts, beautiful stitch markers and really ingenious orifice hooks. She's also listing some beautiful gemstone whorl drop spindles!

I'm very excited to be hosting this Dawning Dreams "Disco Fever" batts giveaway! These batts are a beautiful teal color with a fantastic bold glitz! We'll be drawing for these tomorrow, so make sure you visit Dawning Dreams and find something you like. Post about your favorites in the comments section below this post and one of you will be radomly drawn on Saturday! If you use twitter, facebook, plurk, your blog, or ravelry to let everyone know about Dawning Dreams, you will be counted again for your efforts, just let me know you did it!

Dawn, thank you so much for creating those wonderful boxes for July. They were really special!

I was just admiring the drop spindles over there earlier today! I like the bamboo and steel ones - can't pick a favorite color though.

I love all your handmade hooks, pins etc but I think my favorites are the CAUGHT Orifice Threading Hooks, just too cute!

I have never been lucky enough to get one of Dawn's samples in my Phat box - so sad! I've admired her shawl pins and orifice hooks since I found Phat Fiber in February. Love her new batts and spindles!

Katharine said...

Wow, those shawl pins are gorgeous! And the batts are "nommy" looking. :)

The hooks are cute, but I would love to try the bamboo roving and hemp roving. (I need to expand my spinning!)

But then, those batts look like candy!

I love the simplicity of her shawl pins, but the craziness of the 'Twisted' one made me favorite it.

I have never spun hemp, so that would be nice to get. But I do LOVE the Black and Blue handspun. I have just started using more black as an accent color to make the other colors pop.

The Opal drop spindle is to die for! But I'd be really interested to try the hemp out, too...

I love all of the pins, but, my eyes went right to the Thunderstorm wool/mohair and the Clovermoom fiber. I had to snag them right up. I am hooked and will be back.
