The Critter Ranch Sand and Sea Giveaway!



Mondays are bad. Mondays when you lose an hour of sleep due to daylight savings time changes are worse. I don't know about you, but I'd much rather be relaxing on some beach somewhere than in front of a computer right now. Enter The Critter Ranch March samples! Sue's interpretation of 'sand and sea' was truly amazing! Waves crashing upon the surf, I'd be afraid to spin it to destroy this piece of art... almost ;)

There are a ton of spring-like goodies in The Critter Ranch farm store today- I especially love the 'adopt a Momma Llama' listings! I hear she only has few of these left, so if you want one, now would be your chance! Also, if you must have some Sand and Sea for yourself- just convo Sue and see what she can do for you!

Sue has generously provided a beatutiful Sand and Sea batt to be given away to one of you! Just visit The Critter Ranch, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week so you can use this as a visual aid when daydreaming ;)

Thanks so much Sue for taking us away a little!

The colors in the Violets and Lilacs are so vivid! I really like the In a Blue Mood as well, especially since it's a Monday and it's raining.

I love the summer garden batt beautiful.

Judy said...

I love the new In a Blue Mood roving!

ashley0607 said...

The real question is: What do I not like. LOL. And the answer is NOTHING! I love the Critter Ranch, she does amazing work. I am liking the violet and lilac roving and I am still in love with Midway Lights... Oh and cotton candy is fun. (that is how I like my cotton candy too, on the extremely rare occasion I get some LOL).

I like the color of Western NY in Autumn. The warmth she captures is really nice.

I looked through everything...and loved EVERYTHING! Since I have to choose a favorite it is the Sun Rise Art Yarn batt. It has beautiful colour combinations and it makes me want to pet it :-). I also love the Sand and Sea batt up for giveaway. It really does make me think I could let my imagination drift away while petting it :-). Thanks Critter Ranch for such a great giveaway!!!

Cozy Knitting said...

The Cameron batts are beautiful. But I guess I really like the Leprachaun and Gold batt the best. Great mix of fibers and color.

Chrystee said...

All the batts are great (especially the Sunset Llama one!) But I really love the adopt a Llama Momma program! Such a great idea!

beautyredefined said...

Well, if I spun (and one of these days I plan to...) I would want the violets and Lilacs top. It's gorgeous. But, in my current non-spinning state, I think I prefer the Deep Forest hand spun...

Nupur said...

My favorite was the adopt-a-momma-llama. Now that is so off-beat! And the llamas are so cute :)

Kat said...

The Violets and Lilacs is amazingly beautiful! The Star Spangled Banner Fiber Batt is also wonderful.

InJuneau said...

The A Leprechaun and his Gold batt is great, and I also love the felted soaps.

Wow the violets/lilacs so vibrant so lovely....love the sand and sea, awesome!

danidocrafty said...

I love the Adopt a Momma Llama listings! I'm trying to put together the money now to buy one of these listings, so far the Craft Culture podcast group has raised $20 in donations towards the price so hopefully we'll snag one before they're gone! I also love the felted soap kits, so pretty!

april said...

In a Blue Mood, Punta Wool Top. Lovely blues!

Blumzieluxuryyarns said...

Aw, i like the adopt a llama mama! Awesome idea!

Petra said...

My friend was teasing me yesterday that I am on a browns/natural colors kick. I am going to prove her wrong:-) I like the Sarah Rose batts. Also, the roving braid in Gem Stones looks very interesting. I would love to see it spun up.

PenelopeRose said...

Oooh, I really like the "Fiber Batt .... At The woods Edge....hand dyed llama, fire star and more 2.2 oz"!

Yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

I'm curious about the felted soaps, and find the idea of adopting a momma llama just great. But if I were to order something right this minute, it would be one of the hand dyed combed tops. Probably violets and lilacs, but I like Tree Blossoms a lot too.

CindyD said...

Love the Violets and Lilacs top. The pinks are all really pretty, too.

Susan said...

Space Mountain and Midnight Sky are my favorites! There are a lot of lovely things in this shop.

Zombie Queen said...

I'm drooling over the Violets and Lilacs!

Seriously, I LOVE the SAND AND SEA!!! It really is gorgeous! Just sad that it's not up in the store! Hope it's in my first ever Phat Fiber box!

Max. H said...

I really love the Orchids and Roses Falkland Roving - the colors are perfect together!

Tas said...

It's a beautiful green springy day here, with the wind gusting towards warm, and everything smells deliciously like growing things. I found tiny purple flowers popping up like a mist outside work today. I love Cammie's Camo yarn--it's just the same shade of fine, growing green as the buds on the trees. Really starting to love the South!

Bogna said...

Love the handspun yarn - deep forest - and I don't normally go for green.

Robin said...

Roving Braid...Mixed Berries would look lovely on my spindle

I am intrigued by the art yarn kit especially in those sun rise colors. I love the punta combed top in tree blossoms.

alittleweirdo said...

Too many pretty things... I think my favorites are the At the wood's edge batt and A Leprechaun and his gold batt.

sherry said...

When I saw this on the video, it was truly one of my favorites! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to bid on a box that, hopefully, would contain this gorgeous bit of fuzziness.
I grew up in Florida and the Sand/Sea batt (with seashells no less!) brought me 'home'.
Terrific packaging idea.

Little Miss S. said...

The combed top in Violets and Lilacs is so ready for spring. So am I.
