Stash Enhancement Silver WPI gauge giveaway!


I very much love the idea of functional art. I can really get into the beauty of tools and the art of the everyday. This is what I love about this wpi gauge that Jessie of Stashenhancement has made.

This wpi tool was crafted from a solid silver half dollar coin (1944) and strung on a handspun bombyx silk cord. Would you be the envy of everyone at spin night with this? Yes! Is this pretty enough to wear all the time, even when you're not spinning? Yes!

Take a little time today and visit StashEnhancement's shop, find something you love, and come back and write about it here. We'll be drawing for a name very soon, so don't forget to use twitter or facebook to help spread the word and gain extra entries!

The Lucet is really cool, but I love all the coin tools. I wish I had a couple extra hundred to get them all! Great job!

Facebooked and Twittered because this is just too cool!

Tara said...

Very pretty stuff! I like the Seaweed colorway of the qiviut angora blend yarn, so luxurious.

Pam said...

My favorites are all the fiber tools she makes out of coins. They are very unique. Beauty and function all in one lol.

Diane said...

I love the diz/wpi tool. http://www.etsy.com/listing/47970240/diz-wpi-dollar-pendant-silver-plying What a great idea! I tweeted/facebooked about it too. :D

The qiviut angora yarn would be wonderful to work with.

Quilting Pansy said...

so many neat things but this is something I 'd love to try spinning:
Vicuna Luxury Blend Fluff Cloud for Spinning

teejayhansen said...

That wpi is by far my fave in the shop, but I am sure I would enjoy the Emerald Sea sock yarn as well. ;) And I do very much like the silver dollar diz, but as I still haven't found much use for them myself, I can't say it's my favorite.

karen(faeryl) said...

Everything in her shop is so amazing! I picked up some of her quiviut/angora yarn last month and it's so yummy. Right now? Am totally drooling over the lucet made from a silver dollar. :-)

Karen(faeryl) said...

I just spread the word on Facebook. ('cause wow - that's just gorgeous) :-)

Twisted Knot Creations said...

I love the coin tools and the Granny Rug pattern. I can't wait to make one of her rugs for my dinningroom!

PJS said...

i adore the little 'vicuna in a tin' so cute and fluffy, everyone should have a pet vicuna!

Allison von Berg said...

Melissa Antes said...

Have to say - the giveaway is one of my favorite things in her shop! I LOVE old coins, and little things of beauty for everyday use. :) Also love the rich jewel tones in all the luxury yarns, they all look so sumptuous.

I adore her July Phat Fiber yarn of qiviut and angora in Seaweed. I got a tiny sample when I bought some yarn from her, and I could just pet that little skein all day.

butterflyears said...

I just love your multi-color combinations of homespun yarn!

Kristen said...

I'd love to try the July PHAT Qiviut/Angora 50/50 Seaweed 2 Hand-Dyed Exotic Luxury Yarn.

The qiviut/angora fingering yarn in Seaweed is divine, and so is the Flawful Fibers merino yarn. Yum!b

I like the colors in the Pure Silk Mountain Majesty Circus Handspun Yarn. I also like the Natural Australian Opal Beads Gemstone Bead Strand (98 carats).

KnitCave said...

Really beautiful stuff. I love the pet vicuna in a tin, luxury yarn and I'd love to try spinning it. Also a fav is the gorgeous jewellery but the Diz WIP Dollar Pendant just wins because of its functionality and beauty.

busyHSmom said...

Oh my! The seaweed colorway she made for the July PHAT box is gorgeous!!!

Turtle said...

So love the pendant but it would never fall into my funding range. Very unique! I also love their loom, felted bear pattern and coin buttons.

Lisa said...

I'm so in love with the Diz WPI Dollar Pendant Silver Plying Fiber Tool; that is simply an amazing work of art--all of it is is unique. Beautiful work and beautiful fiber!

Jan L said...

wow! I just love gadgets, spinning gadgets, cooking gadgets. The combination WPI and Diz is just fabulous. It would definately function as well as a necklace for me.

ikisti said...

got to say that all the coinage wpi tools are pretty darn cool.

KILLDxM said...

I think the Caramel Vicuna Angora Silk Ultrafine Merino Exotic Luxury Batt would be a dream to spin.

Marlitharn said...

So pretty...I love things that combine beauty and function. I'm also lusting after the quiviut/angora blend in natural!

I have drooled at a bunch of those silver fiber tools, but being a green fiend I have to say my favorite is the Quivit Angora yarn. If I had enough money I'd by multiple skeins of it.

Well lets see honestly I would LOVE to own the native Australian opal necklace, but if we are talking about things I could actually afford then I would have to say the Purple Blaze handspun is really pretty and my daughter pointed it out and said she thought it was pretty. : )

Jean Ashley said...

I love the Qiviut/Angora "seaweed" yarn. So very pretty!

Tera said...

What a wonderful site! I absolutely love the Diz WPI Dollar Pendant Silver Plying Fiber Tool Handspun Yarn Roving Top Batt Spinning.

Linda said...

I love the vicuna batta. And I especially love the wpi gauge.

De-De said...

I went a little bit crazy in Stash Enhancement's shop, buying 3 skeins of the qiviut/angora seaweed yarn, some "pet" vicuna in a tin, plus some of her blends. Such fast and friendly service! And she's how I discovered Phat Fibers. :)

SJS said...

Oh, Stash Enhancement, you had me at "vicuña," specifically the vicuña fiber in the tin.
