Funny, I was just about to search for a Greener Shades dealer (no kidding)!
I love the Caddy Sax, and if I had to chose one, it would be the Lime and Chocolate.

Chris said...

I've just been reading Manly Wade Wellman's 'John' stories and the skein called Bottomless Mountain Lake caught my eye! Doubtless it's not as scary as the stories about bottomless lakes high in the Appalachians....

Jenna Benedict-Scott said...

I've actually been eying the Kid Mohair Locks dyed with the 'Greener Shades' dyes for a few days now...might have to make the jump, they looks so vibrant!

jessecreations said...

I love everything, but especially her Jumbles 10 batt, ooh!!! I use her for my citric acid b/c I always like to add one of her awesome "special listings" to my order, too!

Alexia said...

Ooh, I'd love to get my hands on "Froggy went a courtin" roving!

Alexia said...

I like the Soft Rainbow Single ply handspun wool yarn, 3.2 oz, 146 yards Merino Glitz.

Lizbert said...

The Shadows bamboo top is a great color! All of her colors are wonderfully vibrant.

TinkerTots said...

I really would love a pair of the Blue Mountain combs. They are so elegant!

DakotaRose said...

Blue Mtn Handcrafts has wonderful fiber tools. I have your comb and hackle set and the blending hackle. If you are looking for fiber though, her cormo is delish.

Mandii said...

Love the hand-dyed bamboo grab bag! Gonna tweet! Mandii411

Stephanie said...

ohmygosh ohmygosh I've been trying to find a way to get those Greener Shades... and you're only a couple states away! And you have firestar! I need to get some of that Shady Moss firestar... and OK, some of the mohair... there's so much eye candy!

Melissa @ Banana Migraine said...

Just coming out of my long hiding and working with my dyes again...would love to get my hands on this. Could I just have the whole shop? At least some mohair locks? Will be tweeting too :)

Turtle said...

shadows bamboo! As much as i love to dye yarn i have yet to dye fiber!

Angie S. said...

Secret glade is to 'dye' for, hehe!

Red said...

Oh, I've been wanting to dye my own wool for a while now! It's really hard to choose a favorite, everything she has is gorgeous. I think I'll go with the GLITZ Smooth Spinning Batt though.

redzshadow said...

I really like the VINTAGE PLUM AND GOLD Straight and DPN Knitting Needle Roll Up Case. I also like the Caddy Sax.

I love the little guy in 'My mom is a fiber junky'. I can imagine my own son screaming this at the top of his voice.

Donna said...

The hand-combed top in "If Only Sheep Came In Purple" would be an amazing and fun summer spin!

Deb at Merciful Hearts Farm said...

The Virginia Bluebells look gorgeous, and I am sure that it would be even more beautiful spun up. So much to choose from in her shop. :)

Christine said...

So much to look at! How about a comb set?

Anett Kiefer said...

My favourites are the Daydreaming roving and the Jumbles batt. All her batts look so fantastic.

PogKnits said...

There is sooooo much in Beth's shop!!! It's hard to pick just one thing. But I do love the Secret Random Beauty batt

Sticklingen said...

I spy with my little eye totally gorgeous batts. Especially Midnight n Moonlight, Secret Glade and Waterfall.

brownbear said...

What I really want the most are those hand combs. As far as fiber, I like the burgundy mulberry silk and the hen smooches combed top.

heather said...

I like the Jumbles 10 semi smooth batt it looks like a fun mix to spin up.

leah said...

I really like the daydreams and hot stuff rovings. Both look quite beautiful. And, uhm, how have I been missing this store?! It's got pretty much everything I look for consistently!

SJS said...

I really like Hen Smooches and What The Heck rovings. :-) I'm also mesmerized by the Jumbles 4 batt! The Greener Shades dyes are such a great idea! Thank you!

I like the GRAB BAG Cinnamon Rolls Hand Dyed Domestic Wool Top 3 oz. All the happy colors made me smile!

eleanor graham said...

I've been wanting to try out greener shades for ages now! I like Froggy went a courtin, and so many others!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

Greener Shades dyes - in a starter kit or any other way - is one thing on a long list of Blue Mtn Handcrafts temptations. The colors of the Secret Glade spinning batts catch my eye, along with Midnight 'n Moonlight. Oh, and if you haven't seen it, go take a look at the Vintage Flowers and Moss "Caddy Sax" bag!

Kristen said...

I like the HOT STUFF Single Ply BFL Wool Yarn 3.2 oz 219 Yards fingering

J.M. Remy said...

I'd LOVE to get SECRET RANDOM BEAUTY... sooo scrumptious!

Kristin said...

Wow! She does cool stuff! I'd love to get my hands on some "Naked Sheep" or the "Experiment #9". It looks like crazy swirled ice cream scoops on the plate. Yum!

InJuneau said...

Oh, seriously, I love just about everything in Beth's shop; right now it's esp. the Jumbles #10 batt. Such lovely colors... I would have said all the project bags, but I already have a collection on ones in fabrics that I love more than any others available.

mary jo martinek said...

I love this idea - I have been wanting to try indago or a blue shade. which I haven't been able to get from my garden flowers. Even if I don't win I think I will have to order some for myself

Kelli said...

Those hand combs look gorgeous.

sherry said...

I love Beth's shop and prolific offerings.
And, have just re-discovered my enjoyment in dyeing! How fortuitous! I do have one of her Batts..which I love and really don't want to spin up as its so pretty the way it is.
I am enamored of the hackle set(s) and am trying...yeah, right, I DID say 'trying'...to save my pennies to get those.

Jamie Longstreth Fritz said...

I love the caddy sacks. They look to be a perfect size to carry a spindle and fiber!

Buckette said...

My favorite item was the Midnight n Moonlight spinning batt. And the Wool Hand Combs are very enticing.

Snaps said...

If only sheep came in purple!! awesome color, and name. I would love to get my hands on a dying starter kit or just one of the grab bags with lots o colors.

Sue said...

I've never dyed before but I am getting some natural roving to practice spinning and if I end up with yarn I am going to look into dying. Now I have a place to look.

Anna B said...

I want all of Erics fiber tools!

iddysticks said...

I am very tempted to have a play with that gorgeous Lincoln Raw Fleece.

Connie said...

This is such a fun site to browse through. I smile each time I look.
The Caddy Sacks are great in any size and I particularly am drawn to the Summer Flowers pattern.

Spinnergirl said...

Love the Vintage Plum and Gold needle case. Sure could put that to use!

Amanda said...

I love the Summer Flowers Caddy Sax and the Greener Shades Dyes!

Mary said...

I have been wanting to learn to dye, but I've been concerned about the chemicals. I'm so glad I checked her shop out, but then I'm not. LOL So many goodies! I love the Ginger Caddy Sax. I hope it is still there when pay day comes around. I'm knew to this Phat Fiber thing and I can already see how much trouble I'm going to get into!

Lil Bean said...

love the blue sky firestar!

Xiane said...

I've got her hearted on Etsy already because her shop is so awesome... if I have to choose [today! it changes!] I'd pick the Spring Green mulberry silk top. I just want to roll in a room full of it!

JMC said...

I love the bottomless mtn lake handspun! :)

dixiemaiden said...

I really like the hand combs! :)

Cozy Knitting said...

I bought some of the dye for a friend for her birthday. I would love to try it. There has to be an answer to metals-and it appears this is one of the answers.

Max. H said...

What a cute store!! I LOVE the "froggy went a courtin" wool roving - the colors are so spring & happy!

Stacy said...

I've got to go with the Froggy Went A Courtin wool roving. I'm on a green kick lately...

trh said...

I really want to try the greener shades dyes. I love her caddy sax and I love her needle cases. I also love a lot of her roving balls and her batts - her color combos are wonderful.
