Bitsy Knits Rustic Roving giveaway!


September is when Bitsy of BitsyKnits hits the road for several venues! If you're able to visit the Garden State Sheep Breeders festival this weekend, look her up!

We very much enjoy Bitsy's creativeness when it comes to her samples. We're giving away this beautiful Rustic Roving which is a gorgeous natural Romney-Rambouillet cross fiber that was prepared woolen style in a working early 20th century mill!

Just visit Bitsy Knits, find something you love, write about it in the comments section below and we'll draw for a winner later in the week! Simple, right?

Oh my god, where have I been all this time? Roses of France Baby Alpaca Laceweight Yarn is sooo gorgeous.

SJS said...

My favorite colorways are Beaches at Night, Manhatten [sic] Rhapsody, and Blue Hullabaloo. I'm really impressed that BitsyKnits is supporting a turn-of-the-century mill at a time when manufacturing, and especially textiles, are not so big in the States anymore. Great work!

Carlin said...

I just spun up half of the Beaches at Night roving that I purchased from Bitsy Knits earlier this summer. I love it and I'm extra excited as she is coming to Knitters Day Out which is just a jump across the river for me!

InJuneau said...

I love the PHATfiber March Colorway - South Sea Isles BFL / Nylon Roving, the Beaches at Night Handpainted Corriedale Roving, and the Fascinating Rhythm Entrelac Shawl Kit.

I'm drawn to Falling for Ewe, especially the merino/seacell fiber combination. Several of the yarns also look really tempting - Beaches at Night or Sea Coral (sock yarn version) are on top of my list.
