KnitTink tencel merino giveaway!



New to the Phat Fiber Phamily is Adrian Day of Knittink. Adrian has a wonderfully creative shop where she bases her fiber and handspun on graphic novels and other comic characters. I have to admit, I am not schooled in many of the graphic novels or characters, but I do know beautiful handspun when I see it!

This month, Ady sent in some very pretty 'Poison Ivy' fiber samples- a luscious 50/50 sw merino and tencel blend. The resulting yarn is so satiny smooth and soft! If you've been wanting to try spinning tencel, this is a good stepping stone to dip your toe into. And look at her colors!! It sounds awful, but I really could just eat this 'Poison Ivy' colorway :)

We're giving away 4 oz of 'Poison Ivy' to a lucky commenter! Just visit Knittink, find something you like, and we'll be drawing for a winner tomorrow. Remember to include where you did your extra social networking (plurk, ravelry, twitter etc) to gain extra entries.

Ok, I love everything Ady makes, honestly. I own some of her Iceman handspun, and it is so so beautiful! I can't wait to see her other new Daria colorways, and I totally love the handspun in her shop right now, especially "If Black Canary were a Disco Barbie" and "Ice Queen."

I *love* the TigerLily yarn. If I liked knitting (I know, the horror), I would be looking seriously at her yarns.

I am going to add her fiber to my wishlist, though. Yumm.

Abigail said...

Cheetara! I don't even know if I qualify to "keep playing" because I won some awesome stitch markers. But I loved the Thundercats so much I had to comment. Lovely colors, funny concept, wonderful spinning. Love it!

elendir said...

I must choose Poison Ivy itself, it's great :-)

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

Several things ... but I'll limit myself to mentioning on fiber item and one yarn.
Just give me a moment, I'm thinking hard here, ok?

For fiber it has to be the Poison Ivy.

...
And my favorite yarn from this shop is Mad as a Hatter.

Wow, that is a really neat colorway! I would love to see what it looks like when it is all spun up!

I think my fave thing in the shop is the Cheetara yarn because it makes me giggle! My friends and I spend hours and hours this weekend talking about our favorite cartoons from the 80s! You really nailed the colors for her too :)

Shawn said...

Mad as a Hatter Handspun is by far my favourite (other than this fiber-- which is beautiful!)!

But here's the kicker-- I didn't like the new Alice movie. That I love this yarn is certainly a *very* large compliment!

brownbear said...

I not only like the name, but I like the color- Iron Man vs Gryffendor.

LeAnn said...

I love the Mad Men, so funky!

Anett Kiefer said...

The Poison Ivy looks great.

Anett Kiefer said...

Meadowland, Velvet Elvis and Cherry Blossom are my favourites.

Heather said...

I like the Nightcrawler. The light and dark is a nice contrast.

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

I love the richness in the colors of Redwing, April Phat Fiber Handspun Yarn

All For Love Of Yarn! said...

I love that she offers spinning services! I would use that for something very special when I want perfection!

Melrose said...

Kat said...

The Watchman handspun is gorgeous, but, I must have the Poison Ivy Merino/Tencel fiber to spin. Everything here is way too cool!

Brandy said...

Love the Poison Ivy colorway, and the Iron Man vs. Gryffindor is pretty cool too :)

Merinitta said...

The Poison Ivy is wonderful. I also loved Redwing, Hairball and TigerLily.

AmyDe said...

I LOVE the poison ivy best of all and it's all I can do to keep away from it (looking at my craft-budget balance helps). Thanks for the offer.

Snaps said...

I'm a sucker for anything Alice themed, the Mad as a Hatter handspun is awesome!
