Bitsy Knits and Giveaway!






Happy St. Paddy's Day! How about a little something green today?
We're giving away this beautiful fine handspun from Bitsy Knits! Bitsy sent in a few different items this month- she so creative! she included spinner's earrings, yarn and beautiful green fiber. Her shop is just full of delicious laces, worsted weight yarn in special blends and lovely fiber! And guess what? She's now a distributor for Spinolution wheels and spindles!

I know you must be jumping to tell us your favorites, so take a minute and visit Bitsy Knits, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, so be sure and get extra entries by using facebook, twitter, ravelry or your own blog!

Thanks so much for sharing this beautiful handspun with us, Bitsy!

Galia Lael said...

I'm having a hard time choosing between Lover of Art Laceweight, Fall in Sonoma Handpainted Corriedale Roving and Sea Coral Bitsy's Sock. All her colorways are amazing, and I love that each colorway comes in a variety of yarns and fibers, so you can mix and match!

Nupur said...

The Something Sheepy Hat Kit is so cute and original- have not see anything like it before.

elendir said...

The Falling For Ewe Laceweight Wool Yarn with the Beaches at Night roving a very close second

Amy said...

I love the colorway in Beau Brummel Bitsy's Sock Yarn. It is yummy!

teabird said...

I'd have a hard time choosing between Manhattan Rhapsody and Beaches at Night sock yarn -- I live on Long Island, and both colours are so very evocative of the colours I see!

saskia said...

shades of forest is gorgeous- and I would love to take a knitting class

Cozy Knitting said...

I love the concept of spin a sock kits, and the colorways are really nice. I like the subtlety of the plums, grays, pinks, but the one with bits of yellow are nice too.

Shelley Voight said...

It was a very hard choice but I think I like Roses in France and Fall in Sonoma for my favorite colorways. Everything is so pretty it is hard to decide :-)

Sylvia said...

Tough choice but Plum Crazy is my favorite colorway.

Yikes. Those are all so gorgeous, and I love my sock yarn with a high twist, so I think I'd go with the "Fletcher's American Chocolate Choral Bitsy's Sock - Superwash Merino High Twist Sock Yarn", but I keep waffling between colorways - how can you choose?

april said...

Are you kidding? Of course, since I'm a spindle spinner, the SpinOlution Mach II Spinning Wheel!

But since, that's not gonna happen, I love the colorway of the Manhatten Rhapsody Bitsy's Sock yarn!

Vickyknits said...

Well that's easy! Can I have a spinning wheel?? I'd also take some of the roving to go along with it :) How about the Chocolate Coral Corriedale Roving? Thanks for the contest!
