Spinning a Yarn Silk Giveaway!

Do you remember the "storm in a teacup" sample from this month's videos? It was from a New Zealand Phattie, Jessicah of Spinning a Yarn. I loved the wool version, but the silk version of this colorway just blows it away, doesn't it?

I am quite excited about the other silk options Jessicah has in her shop, like the luxurious silk yarns!

Please visit Spinning a Yarn today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be giving away this beautiful storm in a teacup tussah silk later in the week. Twittering, fb'ing, plurking and ravelling will net you extra entries, just let us know you did it!

All the goodies in your shop are very reasonable in price and I've added a few to my favorites!

The one I love the most this morning is the merino roving in Blaze, so pretty!

I'm a sucker for unexpected color combinations like gray and yellow! And it looks SO SOFT ... Gonna twitter this too!
