Running time 9:30

Giveaway shop today: Bitsy Knits! Please visit, find something you'd love to write about and come back here and tell us all in the comments section. Retweeting, facebooking, plurking, ravelating will all count as extra entires!

I talk about SALs (spin a longs) and show and tell about the three that showed up at my house this past week: Hampton Artistic Yarns Cirque du Solei SAL, Silver Sun Alpacas Ice cream SAL, Bohoknitterchic's Golden Age SAL

Watch me split a batt and decide how to spin it. Meanwhile, Chopper guards the fiber.

I start to melt and have to go inside.

'Super Chunk Alpaca Boucle'?

Doesn't that sound as fattening (and delicious!) as mint chocolate chocolate chip ice cream?

Bring it on!

Quite a Party Glitz looks like a lot of fun

wardhouse said...

Thank you for posting the spinning videos - perfect timing. I am learning on a hand spindle (top whorl).

I love the Something Sheepy Hat Kit in Russet- completely adorable!

Melissa Antes said...

All the colorways are too pretty (and beautifully coordinated) for me to pick a favorite...

I'm officially not a fan of boucle yarns, buuuut, her mohair/silk boucle might have made me change my mind.

I like the Manhattan Rhapsody BFL

sherry said...

I really like the colorway offered in the giveaway!
Looking at her shop, found it interesting that she has rovings of nylon! I've never spun something like that, outside of a 'combo' sock roving/batt. Might be interesting to do on its own...or is it meant to be mixed with wool? Oh well, either way!

Stephanie said...

So many pretty things! Um, I have to go with Fall in Sonoma Glitz because it's been in my favorites for months now.

Your video was really cool I am a new drop spindler and I kinda liked seeing the thought being spinning your own and all the cool color choices you can make.
Mister Chopper smelling the hydrangeas behind you was VERY cute!

I like the Quite a Party Glitz Superwash Merino Yarn with Sparkle. It's not like what I would usually choose, but the colors are just irresistible.

Wow, the Roses of France doesn't look like much carded, but spun up (the laceweight one), wow! (I can never guess the one from the other. Spinning's a constant surprise for me!)
