Moonlight and Laughter Batt giveaway!


This batt is so scrumptious and beautiful! Whew, ok. I just had to get that off of my chest at the very beginning because it is. Marilla from Moonlight and Laughter is one of my favorite dyers. Her color sense is amazing!

One thing I really love about Marilla's shop right now is her selection of worsted weight yarn. I think a lot of shops will put aside the worsted weight stuff in the summer in favor of lighter yarns, but summer is when a lot of us have a little time to churn out some early holiday gifts. It's so great to be able to purchase the beautiful hand painted stuff this time of year!

We're giving away this gorgeous batt today, just visit Moonlight and Laughter, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week, so in the meantime be sure and use twitter, facebook, ravelry etc to help get the word out about this beautiful shop! We appreciate it so much, we give you extra entries for doing it!

Hey! I was just eyeballing her shop yesterday!
Figuring out where my fiber budget for next month will be spent. Moonlight and Laughter is in line.
And, you are so right...her color sense is terrific.
