Desert Garden Farms SAL giveaway!



Wow! Another amazing giveaway from Desert Garden Farms! Jennifer is famous for her SALs! What is a SAL? It's a "Spin- A- Long" where everyone who participates is sent coordinating (either in theme or actual fiber) spinning fiber and as a virtual group, spins and post pictures to the specific group. Desert Garden offers small contests as a part of participating to make it more fun.

Here is what Jennifer has to say about her Star Trek SAL:

Art Batts.....the Final Frontier.

Four ounces of fluffy, out of this world goodness in the form of a Spin A Long with a Star Trek theme! Fibers will be a surprise but may include any number of breeds of wool, bamboo, banana fiber, silk or silk noil, ecospun, mohair, llama, alpaca, plenty of sparkle and who knows what else! If you have an allergy, please make a note on your order. I don't want to send you something you won't enjoy! If you are purchasing this as a gift, let me know and I will make up a little card for you to give so that your loved one knows what has been reserved for them.

Okay, so the details..... Spaces will be availalble until January 20th or they run out, whichever is first. Batts will be scheduled to ship on or about January 25th. You will have until Feb 28 to spin and share your yarn with the group over at Desert Garden Farms on Ravelry. Spin Long and Prosper!

We're giving away a Star Trek SAL slot! Just visit Desert Garden Farms, find something you like, and post it here in the comments section. We'll be drawing for the winner on Saturday, so be sure and tweet/facebook/ravelate for extra entries.

If you'd like to participate in this SAL, please contact Jennifer as I'm sure she would be happy to make room for you.

Ooooh, Minotaur tumbleweed batts? Yesplease. That's the mythological creature I would most like to do naughty things with. Is that weird? That's weird. I probably shouldn't have said that.

A. Hiscock said...

That knitting gift pack with the walnut needles and Dryad yarn is absolutely gorgeous. I'd love to open that on Christmas morning!

RTed, too! @owldaughter

The Cactus Blossoms Mini Batts are awesome. I really love the whole concept of SALs. How fun and what beautiful batts!!

CptSnoopy on Ravelry said...

I always love those spinner's gift packages. That Dancing Snowman one looks awesome!

Sarah said...

A Shel Silverstein SAL?! OMG, Squee-freakin'-ee! That is possibly one of the more fabulously fantabulous fabuTASTIC things ever.

Jessica said...

The batts look great, but the themes! What fun!! If a subscription to the Cult classics club showed up in my stocking I would grin from ear to ear! And if I won a Star Trek batt, my husband (a professor who has been contemplating using the series as the basis for a course!) would end grinning!

wildwoodflwr said...

O I'm really interested in the O my aching salve. And the batts look gorgeous, especially Hellhounds tumbleweeds.

Like the dorky but cool Star Trek Spin-A-Long isn't enough, there are petroleum free salves, too??? *Swoon*

Melanie said...

Love the dancing Snowman gift pack. It would have been a great gift for our spinning group's gift exchange. What a bummer it was last week. But hey I need another gift for me don't I.

elendir said...

Titania's Tresses for sure!

A Rose said...

I love the packaging and the contents of the Knitting Gift Pack Dryad Yarn and Walnut Needles.

I really like the presentation and the addition of stitch markers that fit the large needles. I had to use yarn scraps on my last project because my stitch markers are small.

InJuneau said...

I've already purchased the Star Wars and Star Trek SALs and have a sample size of the Oh My Aching Salve (great stuff, think I need more), but I also love THE KRAKEN batts!

Oooo, and I'd LOVE a Monty Python SAL! (Ministry of Silly Walks, pretty please, jennifer, if you're reading this!)

jennifer said...

Okay In Juneau. Y'all call me the Enabler, but you're the ones who put me up to this stuff! he he

I like the colors in the Harpy batt.

Nightphoenix said...

The Knitting gift pack is perfect for this friend I'm trying to get to knit.

Kat said...

I am amazed at all of the SAL club choices. I like the Dancing Snowmen Gift Package (sending a big hint to my family), the Sweet Pea Garden Club, the Rose Garden Club, the Sunflower Garden Club, the Cult Classic Club, the Star Trek SAL, Spinning Fiber plus Surprises, and the hand creams all look fantastic to me. This would be one stop shopping for my Christmas gifters.

Kim said...

Hellhounds batt looks squishy :)

Turtle said...

gotta be the dancing snowman batt...but so many choices! bookmarked them!

www.the-fuzzybunny.com said...

I LOOOOVE the Shel Silverstein SAL-what a fantastic idea! I have a huge weakness for his work...my preschool teacher read all of his books and poems to us. I wouldn't mind getting the cactus blossom stocking stuffers either...

HeatherD said...

I loved teh Harpy Tumbleweed batts. My inner Trekkie is screaming at me to buy the Star Trek spin along

Minou14 said...

I love the idea of a Shel Silverstein SAL. I loved his books when I was younger and can only imagine what the fiber will look like!

CinderLisa said...

The Kraken batts are wonderful! If only because they're named after one of the most awesome literary monsters ever. And it's perdy to boot! :-D

Also, such a cool giveaway! Oh my goodness.

BeckyS said...

My goodness! Where do I start.. of course there's the Star Trek sal.. then there's the Sweetpea fibre club.. then the Shel Sliverstein sal.. and the knitters gift pack.. so much fibery goodness..

dinahsaurus said...

Wow! I would love to be in a trekkie spinalong! Second to that, I love the Cult Classics Spinalong Club. It sounds like so much fun!

liza said...

Snowman spinner's gift kit. How perfect!!

thewiggy1 (ravelry) said...

Well. I have already ordered my Star Trek SAL (x2) - so that's one thing I love! But more to the point, what's not to love? I've been coveting the Kraken for awhile - possible to put with the Skylla (now residing in my fiber stash waiting for something wonderful to happen to it).

Becca said...

I have to choose the Harpy Tumbleweeds as my favorite. Very fitting, as I just moved to New Mexico and have been seeing Tumbleweeds...tumble (lol) across my yard!

rebelhousewife said...

I like this one CANDY COATED Handspun Falklands Yarn.

Alaskan Nancy said...

I like the minotaur tumbleweed batts.

PenelopeRose said...

I am ga ga over anything to do with roses so the ROSE GARDEN Fiber or Handspun Yarn Club 3 month subscription 4 ounces is the cat's meow!!!

BeckyS said...

RTed! @MamaKnit2Much

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

Who couldn't use a little HELLHOUND aroud the house. First he devours the pest trying to rubber-band a ton of pizza menus to your door handle, then you spin him up! Perfect.

dixiemaiden said...

The garden fiber clubs sound like a lot of fun. I'd love to be able to try one.

morgaine24 said...

Kathleen said...

I'd love the Holiday Spin A Long!

Knitmomma said...

MINOTAUR Tumbleweeds Carded Batts Monsters and Menaces Collection looks like too much fun! As does the Star Trek spin along.

Little Miss S. said...

The Candy Coated Handspun Falklands Yarn is pretty cool - but so many of the things are.

LivingWaterBoutique said...

yum! the SUNFLOWER GARDEN Fiber or Handspun Yarn Club 3 month subscription 8 ounces would be my dream!

Ann Ryan said...

Oooo, that hand salve looks nice! And I love the dancing snowman gift package!
