The Critter Ranch Giveaway!





I am supposed to be cleaning my house right now. But I can't wait to show you all this lovely giveaway from The Critter Ranch!

Sue's interpretation of our September theme was inspired by dragons. She presented us with two different versions of these yummy llama batts- one was a dragon tale and the other dragon's fire. Both of them were lovely, but I particularly loved the dragon tale colorway. I haven't yet seen this spun up on the forum, but I am eagerly anticipating it!

I love Sue's shop! It seriously looks like I could fall into it and roll around! Sue is away until tomorrow so let's suprise her with all of our comments on what we like about her shop!

I'll go first: My favorite in her shop right now is the great pumpkin! It looks so plum and soft I want a giant bin full of this!

Now it's your turn! Visit The Critter Ranch, find something you like, and post about it in the comments section below. I will draw for a winner this weekend so hop to it! Be sure and use twitter, ravelry, facebook or any other social media networking site to let folks know about The Critter Ranch! We'll count those pings as extra entries for the prize- oh! The prize! It is a full 2 oz batt of the beautiful Dragon Tale sample from September!! Yay!!

Sue, thank you so much for sharing your huggable fiber with us!!

I have to admit that "A Dragon's Tail" is right up my alley. The gorgeous greens and blue--wow!

InJuneau said...

I, um, love it ALL?!?! Those batts just look so fluffy and warm and squishy that I'd like to pile them all up for a nap. I do LOVE the Dragon's Tale!

lissa in western pa said...

while i have never thought of myself as a 'batt person', lol, phat fiber folks are changing my mind. ooohhhh the big fluffy batts. these are just gorgeous. and the addition of a little glitz gets me every time.

i especially like 'things that go bump in the night'.

oh, and the yarns and rovings are lovely too. ;-)

Susan said...

Ooh, Lavender Breeze and Midnight Sky are my favorites!

Michelle said...

I really like the Garden Harvest batt. Lovely colors!

Raymie said...

Love Blue Bells and Got sum Milk!

KT said...

I'm really, really amused by the Funny Face roving - great presentation! The coral reef rovings are really lovely too, but I think my fave might be A Summer's Garden (the llama/alpaca batt).

RT'ed under knitwithkt!

burnt rain said...

hmm I'm pretty in love with the farmer brown's mixed veggies (http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=25605170) cute!

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

I'm with you! I love the Great Pumpkin Batts! They are even cooler in person. The Bewitched Batts are also very cool!

Oh! Where to start! I'm going to say Tide pool because I'm missing summer already and you could just dip your toes into that fluffy mass!

It is so hard to choose one thing! I liked the summer harvest batt. The colors looked nice together.

TinkerTots said...

For me it's a toss-up between Sangria and BeWitched. YUM!

Marimba's Notes said...

So much to choose from, so little time to spin! I can't decide which I like better, her "Dragonfly" batt or her "Summer Melon" roving. Both are exquisite!

I tweeted about her too @marimba26

funkyfiberfarm said...

Handspun Empire Expo - so many colors! And of course, all the fluffy batts that look so fun to spin!

A Dragon's Tail. I love it! It'd look great spun with long color runs and navajo plyed to preserve it. Gorgeous stuff!

I like the llama fiber sample pack. The packaging is very appealing and it looks like CANDY! So yummy:)

AnneMarie said...

I love the Sangria Punch batt!

I recently used my Critter Ranch August sample (along with one I traded for) in a recent batt that I just spun up. Lovely fiber - Thanks!

invisible said...

I got a phat fiber box of fluff for the first time, and fell in love with this stuff. I got a cinnamon colored sample and it is so soft I can hardly stop running it over my face!
So , back I go shopping! Stash for a cold winter!

teri said...

WOW. Love the colors - so bright and fun. But for some reason, I always fall back on the more natural colors with contrast. For example: the Got Sum Milk and Shades of Black.

Kenlynn said...

I like the Sunny Morning roving,
its so pretty.

Anne said...

I love Garden Harvest!

sue said...

It's all about the Orange. One of my favorite colors. The Great Pumpkin is yummy, and looks like a fun spin. My favorite:)

The Lavender Breeze fiber batt reminds me of the county fair we just had. I entered a vase of dried lavender which was the same color as this batt. How I would love to learn to spin using this batt.
