NH Knitting Mama yarn giveaway!




New to participate this month, is Amanda from NH Knitting Mama ! She sent in the most beautiful yarn- her Windham base in "Chocolate Bunnies". I absolutely love it! The more I look at it, the more I think I need some. There is just something completely edible about both the yarn and the colorway- Wonderful job, Amanda! When you visit her site to order yours, it will say "sold out" but Amanda dyes a lot and would be happy to whip some up for you.

I really enjoyed visiting the NH Knitting Mama site, it's easy to navigate and there are lots of yarn, accessories and designs to look at!

We're giving away this beautiful worsted weight "Chocolate Bunnies" yarn! Just visit NHKnittingMama, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll choose a random commenter later in the week- be sure you use twitter, facebook, ravelry or plurk to help get the word out about NHknittingmama, we'll count your social networking as a second entry in the drawing!

The yarns on this site are beautiful and blends that I would love to work with.

Abigail said...

I especially love the fact that she has more gray yarns, like Windy or Smokey.

Very well organized site!

heather said...

I have found several things to love at NHknittingmama. I quite love Boheme in worsted weight. The bags are so cute I especially like Whimsy. I also found chick stitchmarkers that are just adorable.Than again I think I would like to try a Simple Pleasures pack too. How do you chose?

Excellent colors! I really like the pink & blue hydrangea chunky yarns. What a fabulous lap rug those colors would make!

I love the TWIST OF PINK merino. The texture is adorable!

Christine said...

The lavender lace jumped right out at me...what can I say? It's purple!

Margo B said...

I am perusing earlier comments and see that I am not alone in my preferences. I like the Boheme in the worsted weight and the Whimsy bag. My absolute favorite is the chocolate bunnies

Camille said...

I love the Windham Boheme...such a gorgeous colorway!

Melissa Antes said...

Her colors are really lovely, vivid and rich without being neon. And though it's not actually fiber, I have to say I'm really impressed with the actual site! The layout is really crisp and simple, she's organized things nicely, and it's just a fun site to look at. :)

Mandii said...

The Durham-Spring is just gorgeous!

fuzzy-slipper said...

Chocolate Bunnies definitely wins out for me. I did like the Citrus flavour too, but I'm all about the chocolate.

Kell said...

I really liked the Black Cherry Swirl in the Sportweight, too. Actually, there was lots of stuff I liked! She has a nice website; I think I'll bookmark it.

theluckielizard said...

OH, the simple pleasure secret box sounds wonderful...I will have to watch for the next one to come out! I also love the Sunny Sunflower theme of her website, very cheerful and inviting.

Very user friendly site!

karmastudio said...

I love the Summer in December colorway! So blue and gorgeous!

The citrus grove looks quite nice and the smokey one.

Love NH Knitting Mama's Merino - Steel Blue lace weight yarn. 900 yds per hank? Wow!!! Lovely!

km said...

NHKM has so many new things up since the last time I visited. I love the Sunapee Ngong Hills.

ashley0607 said...

Well I think there is so much loveliness going on over at NH Knitting Mama, but if I had to choose only one thing I would pick the Franconia-Cycle fingering/sock weight yarn. That yarn is amazing and I know that my son would love some socks made with it!

Oh and those Chocolate Bunnies are so freaking pretty! The name just makes me want to eat it up: but knitting it up will do too! LOL. : )

StarSpry said...

What a fun colorway! I really love a lot of the colors Amanda has on her site; especially the Strafford in "Black Cherry Swirl". I've knit with a few of her yarns and they are wonderful to work with!!

I'd have to say that I DO love the Chocolate Bunnies best of all! The colourway is sooooo attractive! :)

wakingspirit said...

That yarn is absolutely beautiful. I like the way the colors pop against the brown. I think it would make wicked wrist warmers.

I also really like the smokey lonesome colorway. Yums.

Amanda said...

Scoop and Missy's Jewels yarns are just lovely! So many cute things on her site! :)

Raymie said...

Love Citrus Grove, Black Cherry Swirl, and Lavender Lace!!

Sara said...

I found a lot to love at NH Knitting Mama - one of the biggies is that she is from New Hamsphire and I love supporting local folk.

The other thing is that she names her yarns for town in the area - how cool is that...

And, I really like the Lancaster yarns - all of them...

meh said...

I'm in love with the sport weight Straffod - Blacklight

MissMoosey on Ravelry said...

I love the subtle colors of the Farmington - Grantchester yarn!

Merinitta said...

First off, I love the name "Chocolate Bunnies"!

The colors are so wonderfully bright without overwhelming each other. It's so hard to find yarn that has many vivid colors and is still subtly beautiful.

Heather said...

Definitely Chocolate Bunnies!

A Rose said...

I like smokey lonesome Chester yarn. Subtle.

KellieBelle said...

I think chocolate bunnies is my favorite right now! I'd love to get my hands on some!

I am having a hard time deciding between Durham - Spring and Chester - Smokey Lonesome. I love Springs colors, but I'm definitely a grey yarn knitter and love the shading!

KnitterLynne on Ravelry said...

The whole idea of the Phat Fiber Sample box is genius! We fiber fanatics NEED to actually touch and fondle. I'll be spreading the word about these sample boxes to both friends and yarn designers I know.

knitterlynne on Ravelry said...

The idea of sample boxes is just pure genius. We fiber fanatics need to touch and fondle. And the chocolate bunnies colorway is fantastic.

I'm in love with the Lancaster Goldenrod. I'm guessing it's because I love lace weight, it's the color of sunshine, and I'm loving sunshine right now. =)
