Ambrosia and Bliss Giveaway!



As soon as I'm done with this post, I'm going to load up my shopping cart at Ambrosia and Bliss. I am participating in a swap and I think my person might really enjoy some of Rebecca's Rambouillet or some of the beautiful soft batts that she sent in for this month's Phat Fiber Box.

Speaking of those samples.. boy were they delicious! So soft, so delicate looking and the colors pretty much perfect! I think my favorite was the fire, though I rarely spin anything that looks like that color-wise, I can see it spun and knit up! Ahh creative vision/inspiration! It would be really neat to have that collection and incorporate all of the elemental colors into one project- a scarf, mittens a double dose might make a s shawl hmmm....

We're giving away this beautiful 4 oz braid of merino in a delicious blue raspberry colorway! Just visit Ambrosia and Bliss and find something you love. Post about it in the comments section below and we'll draw for a winner (probably tomorrow!!) be quick and make sure you use twitter/facebook to help spread the word!

Thanks so much Rebecca, for creating these lovelies for us, and for the charity work you've done with your shop ;)

I loved the Ambrosia and Bliss January sample; the merino was incredible, and the Corfu colourway was so beautiful and spun up so smoothly. I'm currently eyeing Camouflage and Maize. Ooh, the Maize is even Rambouillet, a wool I've been meaning to try...

RTed too! @owldaughter

I really like the elemental sampler she put together. I didn't get any samples of her stuff in my box, so this would be a great way to try them out!

Gah! I cant choose just one! Ice, Kiss, Clearwater beach rovings or the elemental set since i couldn't get a fiber box this month.

sherry said...

Interesting! I was just looking at her Esty site last night!
Love her color sense...it comes close to mine and, heaven knows, I have excellent taste..HA!
I, also, love that the fiber Batts are 4oz! That is kinda rare. Love spinning(drop spindle) from batts, I've just discovered.

InJuneau said...

I love her roving/tops, esp. the Moss, Algae, Congo, Teal Deer, Dorothy, nad Red Maple.

knitmomma said...

So pretty! I'm favoriting her.

I like so many, but my favorite is Roving/Top - YUKON - Merino - 4 oz. It just caught my eye!

Khat (from Ravelry) said...

I'm normally drawn to greens and blues, but for some reason I love the looks of her fire batts and tropical fruit roving. If I had more money this month I would have bought the fire batt to compliment the earth one I got in my box as a sample.

Jessica said...

Oh the King and the Marinas and the Kelpie yarns are just luscious.

I love how soft the elementals look. Air is one of the loveliest shades of white I've seen.

I really like the Elemental Series and Camouflage - but it's really hard to make a choice. All her roving looks great.

I'm really diggin' her interpretation of the earth element in Batts - Elemental Series EARTH - Merino/Firestar - 4oz, if only I had a bit of play money at the moment, they would be mine!

Blue Sky and Corfu are really nice. Her colors are really great. The sock yarn is really pretty too, but I am on a sock yarn diet. I try not to even look.

I Love the Solar Flare! What a nice spacey name--and it does do a lovely approximation of the colors of the actual phenomenon!

I'm a sucker for the greens and blues and can't decide whether I like Pond, Algae, or Spring Fling the best...hmm...maybe I shall spend my fiber allowance on one of the three!

Johanna said...

I really liked that there is a variety in the shop. I also love this colorway Roving/Top - CLEARWATER BEACH - Rambouillet - 4 oz

Yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

The number one item on my whishlist is FIRE from the Elemental Series. But I could quite easily be talked into buying the TEAL DEER Roving/Top too. Or SEAFOAM!
