Color Bug Yarns- Fiber Giveaway!



As promised by the weather-man, I woke to a nice fresh blanket of snow this morning. Although still is inspiring and beautiful, I'm growing weary of the bleakness and wishing for the bright greens of my garden to appear.

If you're needing some color therapy like me, please check out Color Bug Yarns! I think Ann's store is the fiber equivalent of a candy shop! Many of her colorways are so cheerful and colorful, you can't help but be a little happy while looking over there.

Last month, Ann's inspiration for her Phat Fiber samples, was Eric Carle's books. We're giving away her "Beautiful Butterfly" corriedale cross roving as a giveaway! All you need do, is visit Color Bug Yarns, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Extra entries will be awarded to those who use twitter, ravelry, facebook, or other social media networking sites to help spread the word about Color Bug Yarns.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful dye-work with us, Ann!

Wow, the honeymooon merino batting is beautiful! *puts on list for when bank account recovers* sigh.

Juna said...

I just love everything in Colorbug's store. I just started spinning and I bought my first pound of yarn from her, in the Peacock pheather colorway.

I loved all of Color Bug Fibers, but what drew my eye today was those adorable and very useful pattern markers!!! I'm always losing my place on charts!

Angie said...

I really love the scarlet begonias merino. Reminds me of having flowers growing outside my window!

Linda D said...

Honeymoon!

I love the Color Bug Hand painted sock yarn in A Beautiful Butterfly.
I love butterflies and my bedroom in decorated in butterflies.

Mama Jude said...

All of the colors are so beautiful and brilliant! I have to say though, that I am most in love with that Beautiful Butterfly colorway. You really nailed it Ann--it is gorgeous!

CindyD said...

Love the begonia!

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

I love Purple Pieman - 4.1 oz Merino, as most know, I'm a true sucker for purples!

ElleVee said...

Klimt! It's so pretty! And I'm just learning how to knit socks...

jessecreations said...

Ask me which one I DON'T love and there won't be an answer! I think I really love "Pigs in Space," though, b/c I'm a HUGE Muppets fan! The Beautiful Butterfly is also a favorite of mine, and I really hope I win!!

Cozy Knitting said...

Well-you are right. The colors do perk one up on these bleak days. I think the colors are beautiful, and it is nice just to stare at them for a while.

Rachel Suntop said...

There are so many that I like, but I have to say that Klimt, Koi and OOAK are some of my favorites!

Amy said...

That Dragon Fly sock yarn is so yummy! My favorite colors all together.

Kat said...

Color Bug Hand Painted Sock Yarn - A Beautiful Butterfly is beautiful. I have been looking for a yarn to try Entrelac with. This is it! "A beautiful mix of purplish blue and rich brown. Will surely remind you of those first spring flowers!" This is the Hyacinth fiber. The description says it all.

Yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

Lots of things here that I want. But I really-really-really want the Autumn Peak hand painted sock yarn. Really!

spinsandknits said...

I saw the Color Bug Hand Painted Sock Yarn - A Beautiful Butterfly: it's the most incredible yarn! So many colors in one skein.
Want!!

Sarah said...

I love the scarlet begonia roving...gorgeous!!

MissMoosey on Ravelry said...

I am amazed at the colors of A Beautiful Butterfly roving. It looks like somebody spilled a big container of brightly colored gumballs! And my second favorite (because I can't have just one) is Tidal Pool.

A. Hiscock said...

I'm torn between Purple Pieman, Hyacinths, and Dragonfly. What vibrant colours she has!

A. Hiscock said...

Also RTed so my friends can sigh over it all as well: @owldaughter

Raymie said...

The Inchworm sock yarn is great...it actually looks like the color of an inchworm!

Rae Tink said...

Autumn's Peak makes me all warm and fuzzy inside b/c it reminds me of my childhood in the late 80's early 90's when neon colors were all the rage...haha!!

Chrome64 said...

I LOVE the Klimt sock yarn! So many pretty colors! I think it will come live with me now!

Ed said...

I love Ribbit!

It's great!

PogKnits said...

There are so many beautiful things in Color Bug's Shop!!! But if I was going to buy something right now it would be the Beautiful Butterfly Roving would be top on my list. I would love to try to make a yarn that shifts from color to color and use it to knit a Zozo!

EverImprovingMe said...

I really love several but the Lemonade roving is wonderful!

Breien in Lansingerland said...

Dragonfly is beautiful!

Garilynnn said...

I am torn, I liked the Tidal Pool with the mix of turquoise, blue and purple. Corriedale is my favorite spinning fiber. But the Inchworm is lovely as well, reminding me that the "wearing o' the green" seasaon is right around the corner!

Julie said...

Pigs In Space, definitely! XD What a great name!

Campbell said...

Color me Preppy or Ribbit!! Those batts would felt up beautifully!
