Gale's Art Butterflies giveaway!




I simply couldn't wait to show you what Gale's Art has cooked up for the March box! Her element of choice was "air" and being the creative person she is, made butterflies! Silk ones!

In the month of March, every $10 you spend at Gales Art will get you a silk hankie butterfly!
You know you wanted to get some of her BFL swirl roving anyway, so go ahead and indulge and snag some of these ethereal samples while you're at it!

We're giving away a delightful jar of butterfly hankies to a lucky commenter here on the blog. Just visit Gale's Art, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below.
Extra entries will be allotted to those of you who make the extra effort and twitter, facebook, plurk and ravelate about this giveaway.

Thank you so much Gale, for amazing us with your creativity again!

SO easy, I adore all the DEEP BLUE SEA colorway.

The Moldy Pumpking roving braid is screaming at me to purchase it. I love it!

beautyredefined said...

Since I don't (yet) spin, I was drawn to the sock yarn. They're all pretty, but I think Cherry blossom was my favorite. :)

The moldy pumpkin (blueface swirl)is so very awesome! I love that she used the swirl to make it!

Cristina said...

The first things that caught my attention were the cherry blossom sock yarn and the Gumball roving.
But those silk butterflies are really where my heart is.

I like a lot of her colorway but the Scarab, Alpaca and silk roving really caught my eye, and those butterflies are so creative and cute.

Magan said...

I love everything Gale makes! Last night I spun her Forest Dream and it was amazing. Deep Blue Sea is my favorite colorway on her site, and I've got a braid of Merino and one of Alpaca/Silk waiting for me at home. Lovely stuff!!

jessecreations said...

I love her Deep Blue sea roving and yarn! Actually, though, I think the butterflies are my very biggest fave! If she ever decides to sell them by themselves I'm so buying some!

Opal roving catches my eye!

Kate (KnitsInClass) said...

I love Lil Red Wagon! The butterflies are just beautiful, too - what a wonderful way to welcome spring.

Lanswyfte said...

Oh, wow! I had to log into my Etsy account and favorite a bunch of colorways that caught my eye--- the vividness of Thing Two, the cool serenity of Deep Blue Sea, the bright shades of both Proud Peacock and Crayon Box, among many others. Some incredible colorwork has been done here, and I intend to make use of it at the soonest convenience!

Lil Red Wagon and Scarab are my favorites! These rovings have such saturated colors! So lovely

Cozy Knitting said...

I like Moldy Pumpkin, but I wish she had some swirl bfl that is not dyed. The Scarab colorway was really nice, as was the merino/silk blend.

PenelopeRose said...

I really want the "roving - moldy pumpkin (blueface swirl)". It's gorgeous! Great shop!

I still don't know what one does with the silk hankies, but those rivings are so lovely! I liked "Thing Two".

ashley0607 said...

I think all of her stuff is SOOOO lovely. I really like the BFL swirl it makes all the dyed roving look extra lovely... Moody Blue looks like a really pretty roving, I wonder how it spins up.

They are all fabulous, but I finally decided on Scarab. It reminds me of my father and our shared fascination of ancient Egypt.

I've got a sample in my Phat Fibers box and I just love Stupid Cupid :-)

Phyllis said...

Her sock yarns are beautiful! Especially the Crayon Box!

Julie said...

Oh oh OH! How do I pick?! I just love everything! But since I must, I'm going to go with "Kiss Me YOU FOOL," in part because of the title and the reference to Klimt, who rocks. But mostly because of the glorious colors and the corriedale fiber!

zemestani said...

love the Kiss Me YOU FOOL corriedale cross roving.
