Spincerely Yours Giveaway!




The Ravelympics are winding down and I'm nearing completion on my project. My challenge was to take 8oz of fiber, spin it, and then knit the resulting yarn into a shawl. A sort of shop-to-shawl project. I chose to use Spincerely's 50/50 merino/tencel blend fiber in a gorgeous bright-yet-earthy colorway and I'm so glad I did! No pictures yet, so I had better stop talking about it, eh?

I'm seriously in love with Tamara's fiber! It's not just the fantastic blends (which are both shiny and soft-so yummy!) but her sense of color is just amazing. She seems to dye with finished knits in mind!

I feel so honored to be giving away this beautiful 4 oz of merino/tencel blend fiber in the most luscious purple you've ever seen! Just visit Spincerely, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing in a couple of days, so go now! Make sure to get those extra entries by letting everyone know about Tamara's beautiful shop!

I LOVE the "Superwash Blue Faced Leicester in Magellen". OMG, the color! I've never spun and would like to learn. I don't know how this was done, but it is beautiful!!! (Is that enough exclamation points for ya?) :)

I love the bright colors in the beehives and roses colorway of the merino/ tencel. All the colors are always fantastic!

Chrystee said...

All of her colors are great. But I faved Wishful Thinking weeks ago and have been oogling ever since.

The handspun Jade Stone is a beautiful color and makes me want to visit our local institute of arts which has a fabulous jade collection!

Sarah said...

She has such gorgeous colorways! I particularly love the Magellan handspun. Wow!

Zee said...

Aphrodite is by far my favorite blend of colors! I think it would be perfect for a beginner, like myself.

Ponddrop said...

I love the Wishful thinking roving. The colours are fantastic. I can't decide between it and the Beehives and Roses. I'm taking my first spinning course next weekend...I have a feeling I'll be back to this shop!

Whisper in the superwash merino/tencel roving is gorgeous!!

A. Hiscock said...

went back through her sold items and fell in love with the French Lilac, Golden Eagle, Rising, and Rejuvenate superwash Merino/Tencel blends. So beautiful!

RTed too! @owldaughter

(Also, my word verification is 'Strad', which amuses me immensely, as I am a cellist.)

cz said...

Evidently, I'm amongst a bunch of bright color lovers, because I love the Superwash Merino/Tencel Roving in Wishful Thinking too! Perfect for Spring (or fall, or summer....)

elendir said...

I really like the "beehives and roses" It's dangerous for me to visit Spincerely too much... I just bought two bumps of Juno the other day. God, I love Spincerely so much!

I was just visiting her shop earlier this week, and falling in love with the Merino/Tencel in Wave and Whisper. Both are gorgeous!!

Kat said...

Wave and Whisper in the Superwash Merino/Tencel Roving is beautiful and would be a good combo together for something wonderful.

Yvette Wilson-Jones said...

Although I like quite a few of the items listed in Tamara's shop, I particularly favor the 145 yards of handspun "Robes of Autumn".

Man you are right! She has color down! I love SW Merino and Bamboo Fingering Weight Yarn in Enchantress, that lime green makes my soul smile.

And the olive green with purple in Handspun Yarn - Magellan, 110 yards! WOW! And I was going to go on a yarn diet today!

purple said...

I love the Magellan handspun. Yum

tom said...

Handspun Yarn - Jade Stone is wonderful

A Rose said...

I'm kinda digging the "Wishful Thinking" roving!

Maybe because, after seeing daffodil shoots in the yard and happy bird tunes, then waking up to a forecast of rain and snow, I'm ready for spring now!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

I want all the roving that is listed! But if I have to choose one, it's Wishful Thinking.

PenelopeRose said...

I'm loving the colors in "Superwash Merino/Tencel Roving - Whisper". It's a lovely glimps of Spring

burnt rain said...

I kind of love how bright the wishful thinking roving is: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=41005806

I'm new to spinning so I can't even imagine what it would become, but I certainly know it would brighten my day.

InJuneau said...

The rovings in Wave and Whisper are lovely!

KT said...

I think the Enchantress fingering merino/bamboo hand-dyed would also be lovely in a small shawl!

Rachel O said...

The Jade Stone handspun is lovely

knitting fool said...

I've got to learn how to spin so I can make something like Magellan handspun.

Magan said...

I have my eye on the Wave and Whisper rovings. I just purchased Velvet Queen and Parvati last week- I'd better hurry up and spin them so I can justify buying more, lol.

Sylvia said...

I would so love to win this and finally learn to spin. The Magellan is my role model :-)

EJ said...

I see that I'm not the only non-spinner who wants to win and try to learn. The colors are beautiful. I love all the handspun yarns, especially the Handspun Yarn - Jade Stone

Carla said...

Handspun Yarn - Robes of Autumn is absolutely amazingly gorgeous. I may NEED that.

To drink coffee and wear the Epona handspun as a light cowl would be divine.

I love the merino/tencel roving in "Whisper"...really, everything is fantastic. I love bright colors! The Jade Stone handspun is also fantastic.

soula said...

I love the Arrosa merino/tencel roving. Wow.

dinahsaurus said...

Love her bright colors! I think the merino/tencel in "Beehives and Roses" is my favorite. I have spun her merino/tencel once before and it was a dream to spin. In fact, it won me a Grand Champion ribbon at the fair last year!

Susan said...

These colors are so lovely! I quite like Aphrodite and Blue Dynasty! Merino-tencel drafts like butter, too. Nice!

asteride said...

Arrosa and enchantress merino bamboo are my favorites.

Erytanthes said...

Magellan is definitely my fave. It's beautiful and interesting!

EVA SB said...

I love the roving in Beehives and Roses and the yarn in Dynasty

cthulhulovesme said...

I really love spinning up Spincerely's fiber. I think what's catching my eye the most is the Aphrodite merino/rayon bamboo/nylon blend, and I'm normally not a pinky-purple person.

Jana said...

I L O V E the Dynasty Superwash Yarn! So many colors!

Jags said...

I just finished spinning my Feb sample and it was wonderful to spin! it came out lovely too :)
Merino/Tencel and Merino/Silk are some of my favorite fiber blends to spin

It was hard to pick a fave because you always have the most gorgeous colors, but today I like your Wave colorway

Ann Ryan said...

I clicked on the site and said 'Ooooooo'! I love the beehives and roses colorway.

trh said...

I so want that beehives & roses merino tencel roving . . .

Emily said...

The Superwash Merino/Tencel Roving - Wave
has really pretty colors.

Pitzapooh said...

Do I have to pick just one? I'm fretting because the budget won't let me buy everything I want.

If I have to pick one, I'd definitely go with Wishful Thinking (merino/tencel). I love those colors!

Liz said...

Sigh.....sw merino/tencel in Whisper..it's whispering my name :)

Mandii said...

The SW Merino and Bamboo Fingering Weight Yarn in Enchantress is delicious looking! The green, purple and brown combination is truly enchanting and reminds me of candy.

NICE stuff! Just looking at the "Happy Days" yarn is a tiny pick-me-up, so I'm gonna have to call that as a favorite!

Jeannine vjv said...

Her colors are simply wonderful! The Superwash Merino/Tencel Roving - Wishful Thinking reminds me of a warm summer's day just as it is starting to end. The Bundle SW Merino and Bamboo Fingering Weight Yarn in Enchantress would make a wonderful pair of spirited socks, reminding one that everyday is full of Magic. Wonderful Color Blends! <|:o)
