Fibro Fibers Nightfall Sock Set Giveaway!



I am a proud owner of some Nightfall sock yarn by Fibro Fibers (in Lime Green in case you were wondering). This stuff is to be coveted. I am hoarding it, waiting, waiting for the perfect pattern to pop up for this yarn. When I find it, it's going to be wonderful seeing the color change from bright green to black!

Dye diva, Jen Hintz has developed a unique way of dyeing this yarn so that the gradation from black to color is subtle yet bold with a stippled star-like effect. It's quite amazing, which makes this yarn extra special. I'm featuring it toady, while there is still some available on her site- they have previously been hard to snag, so if you're interested in trying it out, my suggestion would be to pounce now!

We're giving away this beautiful Nightfall sock set (yes you can have matching socks!) in WINE (sold out on the website) to a lucky commenter. Just visit Fibro Fibers, find something you love, write about it in the comments section and we'll draw for a winner later in the week. We want to reward your extra facebooking, tweeting, ravelating, plurking or other social networking with extra entries in this giveaway, just let us know where you've done it!

Thank you so much, Jen for sharing your sock art with us!

A Rose said...

The mauve sock set would be a fun knit1

fracksmom said...

I follow Jen_hintz so I will for sure retweet. I have finally found a pattern to make a sweater vest from her Nightfall, and am saving to buy it. I'm eyeing her blues with each new batch. been see her first testing.

Winning it would be so awesome.

Blumzieluxuryyarns said...

burnt rain said...

oh wow those are all awesome. I think I love the bottle green and the deep teal so much. Really awesome.

Paula said...

What a clever way of dyeing! Soft pink would be great, so would robin's egg blue. Actually, it looks like any color would be big fun to knit socks with.

(also retweeting)

jazwoman said...

Wow, talk about coveting! That lime was calling my name.... "Julianne, knit me into socks!" >;-)

Kat said...

It's all so pretty! I love the Robbin's egg and the Bottle Green

Sue said...

This is the first time I have visited this site. wow,I love this yarn, robins egg sock set, OMG!

One Sheep said...

I love the Cowardly Lion colorway, but which yarn to get it in? Hmmm, perhaps all of them? Why not!

Marie T said...

I love the Wine and the Violet colorways. And the fortune cookie I got this week says ""Focus on the color purple this week to bring you luck". :-) So, I'm focusing on it!

mrpablo said...

Buttercup is my absolute favourite!

lauraelih said...

Oh wow, that is GLORIOUS sock yarn. I know what my next big yarn buy is going to be...I like the Nightfall yarn in copper. My favorite color.

wenat said...

The cherry is stunning!

LilChickadee said...

Oh, I love just about everything from her! I'm kind of bummed right now because the Wine colorway is sold out.

Pat said...

No way! This stuff is Gorgeous!!! I pick Ultramarine, no, Midnight Blue, no, Ivy, I just don't KNOW. No, its the Ultramarine, for sure.

Rachael said...

OMG!!!That Nightfall yarn is awesome!!! If I don't win I am going to get some!Yum! I particularly like Butterscotch.

Brandon said...

The Nightfall in Copper and the Wine are my absolute favorites, but everything FibroFibers is faboo!

beautyredefined said...

Wow. That looks like incredible stuff. Have you seen this project on ravelry, done in Zauberball? I love how this turned out: http://www.ravelry.com/projects/schmollfisch/in-the-pink

I love how she has sock sets, and full skeins. I think it'd really pop in a full skein pattern though. Maybe Haruni? Anyway, I'd be hard pressed to choose a color if I had too - I love the key lime colorway, the olive, the magenta, the ivy, the mauve. Really, I'm just a sucker for color, and they're all there. The deep teal would be perfect for a friend of mine.

What an awesome giveaway!

I can't believe I have missed this site.

Marlitharn said...

Every colorway is gorgeous, but I'm plotting to get my hands on some Cowardly Lion laceweight - I love golden browns and a shawl from that would go with almost anything! And socks to match...and maybe a hat...

InJuneau said...

Ooo, I just discover this (thanks to you!), and the colors I'd love to have are all sold out... I think I may have to join the mailing list.

EVA SB said...

Such delicious yarn it's hard to pick a favourite.
I love the Nightfall in Midnight Blue and Periwinkle and the Woolpaca in Marigold would be wonderful for some really warm socks.

EVA SB said...

Opps forgot to say I tweeted

leah said...

Oh goodness a new yarn to lust after! I like the copper and magenta colors and the pink sock set is also quite nice!

Phyllis said...

I like the Ivy color best. Thanks for introducing me to this yarn. I had never heard of it before.

Becky said...

This is the first I have ever seen this yarn, but I am pretty sure I have found a new obsession for me. How could I have missed this for sooo long. Soon as next pay day comes around I am snagging a couple of skeins! : )

גליה לאל said...

These Nightfall yarns are so cool!! I can already see the scarf or shawl I wanna make with one.

sherry said...

The Violet and Ultramarine are my favorites. Lately I've been craving colors that 'pop'! The gradual 'black' adds a wonderful effect.
Cool my word verification is 'forkyzy'...sounds like an actual word! Or, some strange cuss word.

Jags said...

Stunning!! I love yarns with long color changes, I think that's why I like handspun so much hehehe

It was really hard to pick a favorite color, but I think the Teal would make an absolutely gorgeous shawl! I wish I could figure out how you dye it, it makes my brain hurt thinking about it lol

and I love that part of the money goes to a good cause, one of my friends has fibro too!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

Among the Nightfall yarns, I especially like the transitions to black from ivy, olive and midnight blue. Or wine, or deep teal. All the darker colors, really. I could also close my eyes and randomly pick a glimmerino skein, not worrying for a second that I'd be unhappy about the choice.

Abigail said...

Love that it's for a good cause, too. :)

I got a giggle out of Can't Miss it Green and of course my eyes went right to the hot pink nightfall.

Donna said...

I want the Midnight Blue Sock Set, but it's all gone! Love 'em all!

elendir said...

I am in love with Nightfall Mauve!

This is an amazing dye job. I like the teal to black transition. I imagine this would be really fun knit up as a shawl.

MissMoosey on Ravelry said...

I can't decide which colors I like best! I like the nightfall yarn in violet and teal.

I love the nightfall in Ivy.

RoamingKnitter said...

What great dying! When I saw the Soft Pink, I thought it was perfect for a scarf for my sister to get her out of pale pink only. Then I saw the Robin's Egg Sock Set and want it for ME!

Anett Kiefer said...

They are all awesome. But my favs are the blue colourways.

Penny said...

LOVE that Nightfall in Copper! Matches my name. I think I need some socks out of that!

vloula said...

amazing colors! something about buttercup and robin's egg i find alluring, even tho pistachio, wine and deep teal would be more my normal thing ... guess i'll have to start a collection! ;)

retweeted to share the fiber-love!

Cozy Knitting said...

Wow! I wonder how this is dyed. It is so fascinating. I like all the colors, especially the ones that are sold out. My usual dilemma. I went to her etsy site too, and I like her roving. It is not this gradated dyed stuff, but I like the two colors she had.

I love all of the beautiful colors in the Nightfall yarns. These are the colors I usually migrate to when choosing yarn. It is such a hard decision to choose a favorite.
I like Deep Teal, Robin's Egg Blue, Ivy, Soft Pink. I could name almost every color as a favorite.

Lara said...

The hot pink is awesome!

ikkinlala said...

The Nightfall yarns are gorgeous, and I also love the Glimmerino in Evergreen. I like how generous the yardage is in these yarns.

Camille said...

I just saw a post yesterday on Ravelry about this "covetable" yarn and how hard it is to get your hands on some. The bottle green and midnight blue are both gorgeous!

Kat said...

There isn't one of the Nightfall colors that I don't like. I will be starting with Cyan first though. Love them! The Simple Shawl that was done with Nightfall is amazing!

PenelopeRose said...

Fabulous yarns! My favorite is the "Nightfall Yarn - Midnight Blue".

TJJ said...

The Hot Pink Nightfall and Lime Green Nightfall are wild. I will definitely have to try some.

April Edwards said...

I love fibro fibers colors. I'd love to know her dying secrets.

SJS said...

Hey, that's really creative! Of course, I like the rich, sold out colors like Ultramarine, Wine, and Midnight Blue. Of the stuff that's in stock, I am really drawn to Copper.

Gina said...

That is some seriously cool dyeing process!

I am loving the cyan, robin's egg blue and the hot pink! Oh, the violet and periwinkle are probably my favorite, though...

I will have to book mark this site for future indulgence.

saskia said...

the key lime is lovely!

I love the Melissa colorway in the Glimmerino line. Also, the shawl in her patterns was beautiful. patsycoats@bellsouth.net

Janet said...

I've totally fallen for all the Nightfalls but I especially love the wine, lime and teal colorways :) They literally take my breath away! Oh, and I love the shawl pattern too :)
PS am posting on facebook and all over rav about this contest, more fool me for diluting my chances ...LOL

Tracie said...

I don't know how I've missed this site until now. I love the wine and the copper colourways a lot. Although that said, I didn't see any colours I didn't like.

Janette said...

I don't dislike any color so far. But I fell in love with Magenta and Ultramarine!

elaine52 said...

I had never seen or heard of Nightfall before and I'm totally in love, especially with the Ultramarine!!! What a fantastic effect!!!

Amanda said...

I love the Hot Pink and Cyan yarns! So pretty for summer!

I love all of it, but especially the Ivy and the Robins Egg Blue.

Ann Ryan said...

Great website! Your nightfall is very interesting. I would pick hot pink or deep turquoise for sure!

knitmomma said...

Nightfall in "violet"!!! *swoon* but I want the 2 sock ball version of it. What a cool color idea!

Raymie said...

I love the Ivy colorway!

Robin said...

Ooh I love the Ultramarine or the Bottle Green. Thanks for introducing me to this new yarn.

Serendipity said...

Oh man, I love ALL the Nightfall colors! If I was knitting for myself, I think I'd choose Cyan or Key Lime. For gift knitting, I think I'd choose Copper or Wine.

(And I tweeted the giveaway!)

Heather said...

I'm not much of a sock knitter, but the WINE colorway seems like a natural for me, doesn't it? ;)

Your colors are just gorgeous. I suspect that every time I visit, I'll have a different favorite. Right now that Periwinkle is grabbing me....

katerina said...

I think the bottle green is so pretty! But the Glimmerino yarns are just lovely too!

Connie said...

Absolutely loving the Midnight Blue and Ultramarine! I had not heard of this yarn before now - thanks for the introduction.

trh said...

Took me a minute to figure out what the difference was between the sock sets and full skeins. Since I'm a two at a time knitter, I really LOVE the idea of sock sets! I really love the bottle green and the wine.

MamaKnits2Much said...

How cool! I've never seen anything like it before. All the sock sets are sold out, but I'm going to have to stalk them and see if I can get a bottle green set. :)

mamakin said...

This is just genius yarn, and the pattern for the shawl she has is perfect!I love the Nightfall in Midnight blue,Wine, Copper, Ivy...alright, I love all the colors! I also loved the Heirloom lace in evergreen, the SuperSock in Partly Cloudy and the Glimmerino fingering in Amethyst-that would make a stunning shawl!

I've tweeted, plurked, facebooked and blogged - guess I'm really loving this Nightfall!

Spinnergirl said...

Love the Lime Green Nightfall, perfect for a Spring Knit!!

brownbear said...

These are really interesting. I really like the mauve and the bottle green.

Sitting here drooling over the "Magenta". What can I say? I'm a sucker for pinks (and purples, and blues and greens.....). Oh crap, I just came across "Soft Pink", I don't think I can handle it... :)

dixiemaiden said...

I love that Periwinkle Nightfall yarn!

Erytanthes said...

Ultramarine. All the way! Or maybe Cyan...

I can't decide. I need both.

PS:

I've blogged for a second entry!

Andrea said...

I am in love with the Robins Egg blue colorway!
