Fiber Fancy Stellar Giveaway!



Diana from Fiber Fancy did an outstanding job on her samples for December! These amazingly soft, sparkly, silky samples were based on a "glowing stellar nursery" and she captured the cosmic feel of the hubble photograph perfectly.

Diana has been busy since the holidays updating Fiber Fancy just about daily! You must must try one of her batts- I don't know if it is the carder she has, the way she cards them or what, but they are truly amazing and smooth!

Today we're giving away 2 of her delicious glowing stellar nursery batts! Just visit Fiber Fancy, find something you love, and post about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner on Friday (pssst! the same day our fall competition voting closes!) and a sure way to get extra entries is to use twitter, facebook, ravelry or your blog and let everyone (including us!) know about Fiber Fancy.

Diana, I am in awe of your artistry for December, and cannot wait to see what you come up with next!

I'm usually a dark- or saturated-colour kind of girl, but I'm really drawn to Beach Umbrella and Ribbon Candy. And I'd love to spin up some of the Semi-Solid Almost Sage to a fingering weight and knit a camisole with it.

RTed, too! @owldaughter

Jessica said...

I love everything in her shop, but am currently dying to have the Party Lights roving.

Quilting Pansy said...

I am tempted to get this one... Hand Dyed, Carded 4 Ounce Textured Fiber Batt Set in Turning Times, Merino, Romney and More

Hizzo said...

Oh, I love the Midnight Roving. I love how dark it is. However, I have been spinning a lot of dark colored wool and have been trying to lighten things up a bit. So, I have to pick two. The second one is Northern Lights Falkland Roving.

Mama Jude said...

I was lucky to be Diana's secret santa recipient, so I received and have fallen in love with the merino top. I am torn between Conversation Hearts and For the Girls. All the colorways are so beautiful!

Elisabeth said...

Any of the pastel Mulberry Silk Combed Top listings! If I have to choose one, you have to give me a few minutes to write the names on little pieces of paper, put on a blindfold and pick one at random.

elendir said...

I love Diana's fiber :-) and her Yearling Mohair Combed Top in Stormy Skies is in my Etsy favorites

A Rose said...

Mauve Madness, Handspun Trio. Would make for a nice knitted gift for my girly-girl niece!

Jenn Doll said...

I love the batts that are up! I LOVE black and pink!! I am a new spinner and this would rock! Great shop too!! :)

Renee J said...

Sour Apples is speaking to me today.

KT said...

I've been drooling over your Send in the Clowns batts for months now... perhaps I should just get them with this month's fiber budget!

I love the 'Sea Beginnings' Romney roving as well as the "Under the Sea' alpaca yarn. Lovely interpretations.

Kathleen said...

I want it all! I don't think I can resist Fiber Fancy fibers. May have to spend some money. Gotta check how much I have in my Paypal account.
As soon as I looked over her shop I had to link this to my blog and mention it on facebook!

Dawn said...

oh the Pond Hockey Batts... or the Metals Batts ... or the just the extras Batts .....

PJS said...

I love the single ply alpaca in 'rainbow' it's such lovely colours.

Sarah said...

I love-love-love Fiber Fancy (and am knitting up a cap of older fiber I spun right now!) I adore the stained glass roving she had up last night. It's lovely.

LOVE!

Kristen said...

My favorite is the roving in colorway Salad Greens.

TinkerTots said...

Too many things to love! But I'll mention the "Mixed Metal" batts. DROOL.

jane said...

I am in love with these samples!!! And a batt that's on sale called Clowns!!! Beautiful! Please pick me, phat fairy!!!

PenelopeRose said...

I had to keep going back to the Hand Dyed, 4 ounces, Yearling Mohair Combed Top, Roving, in Ruckus. The colors are great together and would make for a fun spin!

Cathy said...

I really like the Midnight Lights top.

Redundant Bombshell said...

I'm a sucker for pretty singles, I don't know why.... The alpaca Rainbow handspun single is just delicious. RTed @millarca

heather said...

I could spin anything she picked out but for some reason the smooth batt set in pond hockey calls to me.

Anonymous said...

The combed top roving in Midnight Lights is very seductive!

SpaceJunk said...

The "Party Lights" roving is so yummy. And all of that shiny mulberry silk!

Susan said...

Wow, that's all so gorgeous! I'm quite drawn to the Party Lights roving and the Navy Sea roving. So lovely!

Ottertop Workshop said...

I regularly fork over a sizeable chunk of my disposable income to Diana and it's well worth it! ;) I love her fibres - they spin out so beautifully and the colours are fantastic. Right now I am in love with (everything) the conversation hearts, for the girls, midnight lights, and *especially* the soft candy corn 2-ply. It is just beautiful.

Bingers said...

Under the Sea and the stained glass roving are colors I'd love to spin with!

Sally said...

I am in love with the Conversation Hearts roving. I imagine it plied with a soft pink or yellow... yum.

The Lightest Lilac yarn in single ply bamboo and the Pond Hockey batts...subtle, ethereal, SHINY, and looks soft as clouds from here. Beautiful!

Insaney2001 said...

I love the Fiber Fancy Shop. I especially love one of the rovings she has up there right now called Sea beginings in romney wool it looks amazing and the colors remind me of a juicy watermelon. Would be soo cozy knitted up into some nice socks or mittens or a scarf.

Jags said...

stunning!
It was super hard to pick a fave, they are all so pretty! I think today I like the party lights roving the best hehehe

NancyFancyPants said...

I'm loving the Midnight Lights roving and the Mixing Metals batts...great shop!

Robin said...

The Handspun Yarn, Local Alpaca in Smooth Peanut Butter looks so soft- I need to fondle it!

Magan said...

I love With a Twist and Sweet Tooth. The batts and roving that are primarily white with hints or kicks of color are particularly appealing to me right now.

Max. H said...

Beautiful fiber in this shop! My fav. is the Merino Combed Top, Roving, in Party Lights - the colors are nice and bold, and contrast well!

Anonymous said...

I long for plum candy mix---such a nice blend of colors and enough to make something snuggly.....

Chewed Chocolate Candies - I love how interesting and complex it is!

Kat said...

This is already one of my favorite shops. She does amazing work. Right now she has Party Lights, Stormy Skies, Ruckus and Midnight Lights that I am just drooling over. I have never been disappointed with a purchase.

InJuneau said...

The Navy Sea and Salad Greens rovings are beautiful!

knittingdancer said...

I like the colors in the hand dyed Merino & More in Fairy Queen (213 yds).

Sarah said...

What a great shop! Hands down, though, my favorite is the Modified Rainbow roving. Delightful!

Anne said...

I hear she has more of that awsome merino coming so I'm getting some of these...

Cozy Knitting said...

Fresh Love is nice. I like the saturated colors.

Rachel Suntop said...

Sea Beginnings! I've been a long time fan of Fiber Fancy, just love the colors!

cthulhulovesme said...

The turquoise Mulberry Silk combed top is really, really tempting. I tend to prefer darker colors, but that is begging to be spun.

Julie said...

Ooooo, THIS is my absolute favorite - 4 oz of hand dyed merino combed top roving in Earthy Growth! I like the amount of white in there, it reminds me of a forest in winter! Or my Texas garden, the one snowy day a year.

Kim said...

I LOOOOVE the "Now That's Love" falkland top!!

Alaskan Nancy said...

The handspun alpaca in Rainbow is unbelievably beautiful.

Lindsey said...

I actually ordered these batts when they were posted on "Box Day". I'm eagerly awaiting their arrival, they look so pretty.

Actually, I think the Glowing Stellar Nursery batts ARE my favorite item in the shop.

So much to love! My favorite right now is Hand Dyed and Carded 4 Ounce Smooth Fiber Batt Set in Mixing Metals.

Lisa K said...

The Falkland wool in Fury - I'm not usually a Red girl, but this is stunning!

colleenrose said...

I was surprised by several batts, especially the textured batt with falkland & more that is mostly white with some lemon & lime & sparkle highlights. Way to use the white! Sometimes I think dyers think it's a forbidden color ;)

Petra said...

Oooooh, I just found Surfing Maui. And the Mulberry Silk Top in Almost sage ... I've been eyeing that one for a while. And I absolutely love the Olives and Plums!
