Blue Moutain Handcrafts and *giveaway*







When I visit Blue Mountain Handcrafts, I really feel like I'm stepping into a bright, colorful, happy place- almost like I'm on a fantasy fiber vacation!

Beth
stocks everything I love: beautiful handspun, colorful and interesting spinning fiber and perfectly constructed fabric bags! I love that Beth offers a spinning service! For those of you who may love a batt but don't spin!

Today we're giving away a beautiful "caddy sax" !! This bag will hold everything you need to take with you- and give you plenty of pockets for extra notions etc. Just visit Blue Mountain Handcrafts, find something you like, and post about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner tomorrow! Please be sure and take a look now! We'll count your tweets and facebook updates as extra entreis- just let us know you did it!

Beth, I am amazed at your work! Thank you for sharing with us!

Good grief vs. put the lime in the coconut handspun...how do I choose?!

Redundant Bombshell said...

I absolutely cannot choose between the Ugly Stepsisters & Bikini Bottom handspuns. Fairy tales or Spongebob?!?!!? I think my head just exploded. RTed @millarca

IndigoMuse said...

I love the plum and moss caddy. Thanks for introducing me to a Virginia neighbor. I love to shop local when I can and am excited to uncover this hidden gem in my own backyard :)

Jess said...

I love the colors in the Toot Sweet A batts. They look like so much fun to spin!

lesliecooper said...

Love this: VIOLET BEAUREGUARDE Spinning Batts 3oz Merino Firestar Sparkle Mohair

it will be coming to see me soon:)

Jan said...

Love the YESTERYEAR YELLOW No. 2 Glass and Cloisonne Crochet and Knitting Removeable Stitch Markers. This style is great for marking the starting side of a toe-up sock. I love the short hang - and they are hard to find.

Marimba's Notes said...

The Toot Suite batts are just lovely!

Susan said...

All those bags are so cute! Among the spinning fibers, I quite like Love Potion no. 9.

Kristina said...

the brown and lilac caddy sack is the one for me! although I have to say, I like all of those sacks, what a great bag! on facebook, too!

emwall24 said...

Ooooh, the Bare Trees and Blue Sky batts look gorgeous!

Sally said...

Handspun Sampler! Ahh, that would be the coolest hat or scarf....

Knit with Chopstix said...

The autumn orange bag is delightful, but the Good Grief yarn stole my heart. My mother-in-law is a HUGE Peanuts fan, and it made me think of her. (I like her, so that's a good thing.)

Gerry said...

The drawstring bags caught my eye and are just the bag for my most recent knit or crochet projects. Love the idea, size and most especially the color-combos.
They are gorgeously GORGEOUS ! ! !

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

I think my favorite fiber is the MTN MEADOW Spinning Batts 4 oz Merino Firestar Columbian Curly Locks followed closely by ELDERBERRY FIZZ but I love the name of THREE LITTLE PIGS ON TOAST, just too funny! And I absolutely adore your new Vintage Moss bag!

TinkerTots said...

I just adore the "Three Little Pigs on Toast" spinning batts. I had so much fun spinning up the Box sample of her batt that I'm sure these would be great as well.

And totally cute!

knitspaz said...

those bags are so cool!

Cat said...

I am in love with the Moss Caddy and the Orchid batt.

Melissa said...

'Down by the Creek' handcombed roving would be my pick! I had a chance to spin with someof Beth's combed fiber before and it was luscious!

Anna B said...

(Facebook, blog)

Melissa said...

I love love love the wild woman single ply!!!

Magan said...

My favorite- the caddy bags! Especially "For the Birds". I really need to get one of these.

Kristen said...

Love the caddy bags! Would like to see some solids or something less floral. :)

TJJ said...

I adore the project bags. I don't know how I could narrow it down to one though they are all so beautiful.

StephCat said...

mtn meadow batts are such a pretty green!

Renee said...

Impressionism is beautiful.

lkhillman74@aol.com said...

The Dreaming in Technicolor BFL Combed Top would just be ridiculously fun to spin!

sunnie fairy said...

I like the handspun beachy keen. lots of texture!

Luthien said...

Wow, thanks for introducing me to another great source of addiction (I think!)... I so love the Mossflower Spinning Batts... there is just enough there to make a fabulous yarn, then knit into some rockin' hand mitts for a birthday present for my niece, if I can let them go... the bags are also great. I'd love to have one. Cannot have enough knitting bags, these are great!

dixiemaiden said...

I liked the Autumn Splendor batts.

Amanda said...

Three Little Pigs and Autumn Splendor are so pretty! I love all of the adorable bags as well! :)

helenlam said...

The purling puppy stitch markers are cute!

Lady O said...

I like the dreamcycle batt and the One purple shoe st markers.

Plurking too.

monkeyspinner said...

I love the Autumn Splendor batts!They are very pretty and vibrant.

Max. H said...

I think the caddy sax drawsting bags are unique and amazing! My favorite one is the lime & blue - what a perfect fabric combo!

bjbj said...

As usual - beautiful products. I don't spin but the Autumn Splendor Batts screamed October to me and the Think Pink handspun was just wonderful. Thanks again Phat Fiber!!

stacey said...

I love the BROWN AND LILAC Caddy Sax. Wow would I love to win this one.

Off to blog

Trudi said...

The colors of BARE TREES AND BLUE SKY Spinning Batts are lovely. I am sure I am not influenced by the mention of "chocolate" in the description...I do realize it means the color.

Elaine said...

I've blogged about it here:

pick me, pick me

Rachel O said...

So many fabulous choices! HOLEY MOLEY rates a HOLEY MOLEY

sciteacher said...

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one, she paid it for the lime

She put the lime in the coconut, she drank 'em both up


And I know why she did it, if it looked half as enticing as this yarn! Yeah, the PUT THE LIME IN THE COCONUT Self Striping Single Ply Handspun Wool Yarn just totally does it for me! Awesome yarn and great (funny!) title. Love it!

Robin said...

WILD WOMAN Corespun Art Yarn is soooo cool(Hot)

purple said...

I have a birthday coming up in November. I'm going to hint for PURPLE ROSES Caddy Sax, unless of course I win this one.

Sylvia said...

I love all of the bags but especially the TEAL LEAVES Caddy Sax Drawstring Bag

MissMoosey on Ravelry said...

I love the three little pigs on toast (although I have never before seen a pig on toast) batts.

DebsCrafts said...

I absolutely love the colors in "WHATEVER A Self Striping Single Ply Handspun Yarn 3.6 oz 238 yards". They are gorgeous!!

dragonmaille said...

Ooooh, what a variety of neat stuff! I do like the Elderberry fizz spinning batts--nice color combo. Though having more bags to carry my spinning and knitting around in wouldn't be bad...despite what my husband says. None of the bags I have work with my longer spindles anyway, so maybe a spindle bag....

Rois said...

I was so very in love with her things I bought 2! an awesome circilar needle case and a sack! But this blue and Chocolate won is fabu as well!

Jersey said...

I just love the PURPLE ROSES Caddy Sax.

knitting fool said...

All of the handspun yarns are fabulous. I want them all. Good grief or holy moley. What a choice. I love all the witty names.

tom said...

My wife and I are both birders. I think we NEED FOR THE BIRDS Caddy Sax Drawstring Bag. We'll probably fight over it.

Carla said...

TEMPORARY INSANITY says it all. Or maybe TOOT SWEET Corespun Yarn. Your handspun yarns are just wonderful.

EJ said...

Love the circular needle case. Really cute in the travel size.

ikkinlala said...

I love the Charlie Bucket and the Golden Ticket batts.

Crystal said...

Choosing just one item: not.easy.

But I do love Bare trees and blue sky, so beautiful!

Raymie said...

All of the caddy sax bags are great...but I really like the Rainbow Gems stitch markers

Nightphoenix said...

I love the Mountain Meadow batts. The bags are such a wonderful design.

Kenlynn said...

I really liked the Rainbow Pack of hand

rebelhousewife said...

I love the left over batts, a great idea for using up small leftovers, and they look like they will be fun to spin.
