You know what that means... her bags will be in even higher demand! If you were thinking of purchasing one, now would be the time!

Beth is a temptress of the worst *ahem* BEST kind! I have spun her batts and absolutely adore them! As I prepare and plan for the Ravelympics, The rainbow-dyed BFL I purchased from her is beckoning me!

A very lucky commenter will win this beautiful hand sewn bag later in the week! Just visit Blue Mountain Handcrafts, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. Make sure you use twitter, facebook, plurk or any other social networking site to help get the word out about Beth's shop. Let us know you did it, and we'll count it as an extra entry!

I am trying to be good and not hit "buy" on her lovely Tiddlywinks batt-everything looks so yummy!

knitting fool said...

Yikes - too many choices! What an array of choices.

I don't sew so I would love one of her bags. Especially BLUE PAISLEY Caddy Sax Drawstring Bag Knitting or Crochet Project Bag or Purse

I really like the Spinners Delight Fiber Filled Gift Basket. It is such a great idea!

Beautiful items! Have bookmarked it for shopping at one day soon. Love the PINE NEEDLE Straight Circular and DPN Knitting Needle Roll Up Case, and the PLUM AND SAND Caddy Sax Drawstring Bag Knitting or Crochet Project Bag or Purse Medium. Your rovings are great too -- love the SECRET GLADE Spinning Batts 4.6 oz Cormo Silk BFL Glitz and the Bruised ego and Daydreams Rovings. Wish you a lot of success in your shop.

Renee J said...

Beach Glass is wonderful. I also really like vintage plum roll up case.

Annette said...

What is there not to love about her shop? I am in love and had to favorite her.

Anyway, if I had to pick a 'gotta have' it would be the last of the summer wine bag.

Quilting Pansy said...

I really liked 2 different listings:
BEACH GLASS Luxury Combed Top Birds Nests For Spinning 3.2 oz. Merino Silk Glitz
and
AESTEROID BELT Super Soft BFL Combed Top 4.4 oz

knittingdancer said...

This was a hard decision. My favorite is the green rose circular case.

drMolly, the BeanQueen said...

OMGosh - way too many lovely colors, making a very difficult choice!! - so here's just one: "Hen Smooches BFL combed top". I have already put the shop in my favs & will tweet, too.

cathy said...

The Sherbert Corriedale Hand Combed Top is so awesome.

nikki-t said...

I love the Shasta daisy project bag!

A Rose said...

Shield Maiden. I like the name!

InJuneau said...

Ah, yes, Beth is a temptress. I have, in the past few months, acquired 5(!) of her bags. They're awesome. I was just looking at her shop yesterday and found more I love, not that I need more... The Blue Paisley ones are great though!

Her fibers are also fabulous, and her daughter has great taste in colors!

Zenfluence said...

The handspun sampler seems to call to my wallet

Anna B said...

I've been checking your shop everyday waiting to see erics tools show up! And i obviously love every bag you have. Duh lol

Ann Ryan said...

I love the bags! My favorite is the blue paisley caddy sax.

Kat said...

I have bought quite a few things from Beth's shop. A1 service is always available. My all time favorite purchase were a set of stitch markers that looked like mother's rings. I take extra good care of those.
Right now, Beth has the coolest bags for sale. The Caddy Sax's. My favorite one of those is the Plum and Sand Caddy. Oh crap. She has recently added Arsenic and Old lace Caddy. Now, I am going to have to flip a coin. I also love the Beware of the 7 yr old Beauty Consultant Batt and Beware the Blind Tattooist is still in my Favorites. Way to cool! I need to win the lotto!!!

sarah said...

i have to say the HANDSPUN SAMPLER 12 Skeins of Handspun Yarn looks like it would be lots of fun to work with!

Love the BLUE PAISLEY Caddy Sax

Cozy Knitting said...

I like the This and That batt with soy and glitz. Looks like a hodgepodge of leftovers put together. But it could be really nice spun up.

KT said...

I'm all about the blue paisley Caddy Sax bag! Wants it, I does...

RT'ed as Knitwithkt!

Linda D said...

Bruised ego, but they are all so pretty!

jane knitter said...

The Baanna and Plumeria colored crochet hook and DPN case rough reminisces. We were stationed in the Philippines and had a yard full of the sweet smelling plumerias. I may just have to order this for memories sake.

Love your VINTAGE RETRO Reversible Q Style Project Bag. Where did you get that material? Thanks for posting!

The BLUE MOON Single Ply Handspun Yarn is beautiful

Knitdesigns said...

Everything is beautiful. I love the Sherbert spinning batt.

Rachel O said...

My vote is for the blue paisley caddy bag.

Turtle said...

blue paisley is sweet.

I actually bought one of her bags a few months back after you showed off her lovelies, it is gorgeous, sturdy, functional and i have had many compliments on it!

elendir said...

It's really hard to choose... I love her Random Beauty batts.
But then I love most of Beth's items... also the Arsenic & Old Lace project bag is to die for!

oonagh said...

everything is so pretty, but i find the "gandalf's beard" stuff terribly amusing!!

-oonagh fibersmyth on ravelry

AnneMarie said...

It's a tough one: The Plum and Sand Caddy Sax Project Bag or the Beach Glass sparkly batts.

Sweet!

Minou14 said...

Her bags are all gorgeous and I'm waiting to see a Medium Caddy Sax in the perfect colors for me. I also love just about every single one of her batts. Her color combinations are very creative. "Radioactive Cocktail" and "Beware the 7 Yr Old Beauty Consultant" are my current faves.

Jags said...

Beautiful!
I love your
BLUEBERRY AND CHOCOLATE Straight and DPN Knitting Needle Roll Up Case

I need one of these sooo bad!

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

I love PLUM AND SAND Caddy Sax Drawstring Bag Knitting or Crochet Project Bag or Purse Medium, amazing blend of colors!

jennifer said...

Oh, sigh. I can't choose. I love them all!

heather said...

I am in lust with that Golden Dragon caddy sax. Everything is beautiful.

nowhereslow said...

i love the caddy sax! they would be perfect for setting beside your wheel and when you are done spinning for that session, you can just cinch it up. i've been looking into getting one of these!

Knitmomma said...

I love her "etc etc etc" listings! What a sense of humor.

My favorite thing is BRUISED EGO Superwash Wool Roving, although the bags and batts are scrumptious too!

Beesybee said...

Any of her Caddy Sax Drawsting Bags would be perfect. They are all soooo beautiful. I love her handspun yarn. They all seem very soft!

Anonymous said...

So many beautiful choices. I fell in love with DADDY'S GIRL yarn handspun by me. It is so soft and beautiful.

Love it

I LOOOOVE the Gingerbread House Yarn - the colors are magnificent. Would love to make a cowl in that and bring it right up against my face...

TJJ said...

I adore the caddy sax. Choosing just 1 favorite is nearly impossible!

Darcys Knotty Knitter said...

I love the BATIK AND PLAID Caddy Sax Drawstring Bag Sock Project Bag or Purse Small and the Whatever single ply handspun:)Hugs Darcy

Love the Gingerbread House handspun.

mamakin said...

I love it all! The Arsenic & Old Lace caddy & the Plum & Sand Caddy really call to me, as do the Random Beauty batts and the Gypsy Woman core spun art yarn. I'm drooling.

Off to twitter,plurk,facebook & blog

MarieAngel said...

Wow!!!

It's hard to choose when there are sooo many lovely items to drool over.

The Dark Earth Rainbow really speaks to me. I also love the photos of knit swatches so you can see how the colors blend together. Great idea!

Those knitting supply bags are really cool as well.

LEISA said...

I love all of Beth's work but today the Random Beauty 4 Spinning Batt is calling my name! I've spun some of her fiber before and just love the color combinations!

Karen Sue said...

I think the Handspun Sampler looks very neat, for someone who knows nothing of spinning herself, but who would know when I whip out this collection?!?!?
I really like the stitch markers, too. But all in all I am inspired to neaten up my stashes...in several bags, needle case just keeps showing up in odd places...those little bags look so much better than my ziploc bags with junk poking out of them!!
Oh, if I win, I'd have a headstart!

spinsandknits said...

LOVE your Daydreaming combed top, and the Bruised Ego roving: omigosh -- incredible doesn't even come close.

Anonymous said...

I really like the colors of the "A Wink and a Smile" merino top. I love pastels though :)

Vickyknits said...

Thanks!

Angie said...

I really love "BEWARE THE BLIND TATOOIST". The colors are great and the name is so original!

Melanie said...

I love the random beauty batt, even though they are not ones I would think of to look for they are a great mix. The colors are so cool together.

trh said...

I am so in love with Beth's Caddy Sax that I must have one! I was hoping that I'd have a little bit left after I pay the bills this month and really, really wanted the Plum Wine and Gold one - but someone bought it a couple of days ago :( The bills will get paid and maybe there will be enough left over for a present for me before these things go into the magazine and sell out for months!

Amy said...

I like the Tiger Lily handspun. Beautiful colors. I also love the special listings - great idea!

KPP said...

I really like the BLACK POPPIES Small Monkey Sax Drawstring Backpack. And congrats on the Interweaver Crochet spot! I'll keep my eye out!

Lindsey said...

Oh my! What a lovely shop. Yes, I will need to consider buying a bag before she becomes super famous! :-)

Hard to pick faves, but the Plum & Sand bag is speaking to me. As is the Random Beauty #3 batt!

Tweeting @WaterlooWools as well!

Karen said...

My favorites at the shop are the little are you paying attention discount pages--I love all the stuff and have mentioned it on my facebook page too.

Elena12 said...

Wow!! So many beautiful things!! I have to say, I really really love the Beach Glass handspun though. Gorgeous!! So many beautiful things, I just had to share this with my friends on facebook...maybe they'll buy something for me...;) haha

Snaps said...

I'm in love with the handspun. I just love the look of handspun yarn in general. The project bags are awesome.

Max. H said...

Wow! This store is amazing! I love the bags so much - very beautiful fabric combinations! I am in love with her batts right now - especially the BARE TREES AND BLUE SKY batts containing Firestar Glitz Merino Cheviot - gorgeous!

PenelopeRose said...

So many great items it's hard to choose a favorite. Although, right off the bat (pun intended) the RANDOM BEAUTY 3 Chunky Spinning Batts 5 oz Angelina Firestar Silk Corriedale caught my eye. I love the color blending in it!

Kenlynn said...

I love your
DAY DREAMING 64s Merino Wool Combed Top 5 oz

Raymie said...

The bags look great and I like the WHATEVER B colorway in the handspun yarn.

Lisa K said...

Those random beauty batts are pretty amazing!

HeatherD said...

I fell in love with Fairy Underpants!! I love the name and love the colors. I want to order it just to see what the purple truly looks like!! I also fell in love with the Butterly Monkey Sax back pack. I am so tempted...

jessecreations said...

I love the Plum & Sand Caddy Sax project bag. I totally need a project bag (or 20)!

kiwiberrie87 said...

Oh man....They are all so lovely it's too hard to choose. I think my favorites are the Teal and Chocolate bag and the Last of the Summer wine bag. I will definitely be spreading the word about her shop to the ladies at my knit night. My Rav name is kiwiberrie87 by the way. :)

Alaskan Nancy said...

The Random Beauty batts-- oo la la!
