Learn to Spin gift from Dawning Dreams


I am quite excited about this weekend! Several phatties will be traveling here to spin, knit, eat and play together this weekend! Dawn from Dawning dreams is one of those phatties! Dawn and I have met a couple of times before and that woman is as sweet as pumpkin pie! Just look at this spinning starter set she's sent in for a giveaway! A beautiful but easy to spin batt and spindle!

I love just about everything in Dawn's shop and I hope she brings a few things to unload this weekend- wink wink! Maybe you all should pick some things out for yourselves so I'm not so tempted ;)

Please visit DawningDreams, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll award you extra points by using your mad social networking skillz and helping spread the good word about the shop! Drawing will be held on Friday so act quickly!

Lurving the Pink Karoke Art Batt! Very pretty and looks squishy too. :->

Melissa said...

Looove the colors she's done her laceweight yarns in! Midnight Fog and Drink me are absolutely lovely.

marina said...

I really wish I could win the starter kit and finally learn to spin. I would like to start with VINEY supewash!

I like the Cottonwood sock/fingering yarn in superwash 400 yds.

Alexander the Great said...

Definitely the Grey Gods Bamboo/Rayon batt.

Tera said...

I love Blackberry Iris! It would be great to win a learn to spin kit. I have a friend that I am trying to draw into spinning. That would be the perfect starter set for her.

Tas said...

Those project bags are amazing! Love the blue and brown flowers. Definitely appealing to the scrapbooker lurking in my soul.

The Enchanted Mist is also gorgeous, I cannot lie :)

I love the MIDNIGHT FOG Hand Painted Lace Yarn, 1300 yards

I will tweet and face book also.

Galia Lael said...

I like spinning for socks, and Dawn has so many sock fibers to choose from. My current favorite is Viney.

I love the Blue Swirl sock batt, and the Blue and Brown Mod Flowers project bag would be perfect to put it in!

Kat said...

OPALITE Alpaca, cashmere, and silk spinning batt is GORGEOUS! This is a must have for me.

Annette said...

I want to learn to spin in a bad way - this giveaway is perfect! She has so many wonderful sock yarn colors; I am torn between peach cobbler and twilight forest.

butterflyears said...

The Midnight Fog lace yarn would make a beautiful shawl!

Pam said...

I'm loving the pyramid project bags. All of them lol. Which reminds me I need to get shopping for one!

Tam said...

I was just looking at Dawn's etsy shop last night, as I ponder my next project! I'm really looking forward to trying the superwash batts sometime - the Ginger Mead would make wonderful socks and is such an unusual color! Socks are my knitting passion and spinning the yarn for them is just a joy!

Paulette said...

I absolutely LOVE the triangle bags! I'm getting one for sure. The Viney batt is absolutely gorgeous! Off to spend!!!

Momyerom said...

I am a wannabe spinner currently fighting off the inevitable. When I finish my Holiday projects, I'm definitely going to explore spinning. I love the BLUE MOON and VINEY batts.

jc said...

The Midnight Fog laceweight is great. Her colors are great.

Ginger Mead Superwash Wool Batt

Karen(Faeryl) said...

Cherry Blossom's so gorgeous! :-) Although everything in her shop's just wonderful stuff - check out the Roaring 20's Inspineration box.

Tara said...

The blackberry iris colorway looks very pretty

Zombie Queen said...

I'm torn between the cherry blossom batt and the polka dot triangle project bag. I really like the triangle design of the bag. I haven't seen it before.

Magan said...

Wowwww. I love the triangle bags and the spinner's lap cloths. And all the gorgeous batts!

TuttleDB said...

The Peach Cobbler Sock/Fingering Weight Yarn looks yummy!

Nuime said...

Oh wow... this store may just break my newly imposed yarn diet. I must admit both the lace yarns are just beautiful. Drink Me is just great! I'm sad to see she doesn't have the pattern to go with it in the store at the moment or I'd be in real trouble. ;)

Kimberly R. said...

Love, Love, Love the color of the ENCHANTED MIST Sock/Fingering yarn!!!
Thanks :)

marianne said...

the Grey Gods roving looks delightful!
thanks for this giveaway!

Kristen said...

So much great stuff, but I really love the Blue and Brown Flowers Triangle, Pyramid Project Bag, 9 inches.

Alison said...

First of all those project bags are so cool! But, I'm really in love with the "SECOND SUNSET Mohair locks". Lovely.

Jean Ashley said...

I really like the Enchanted Mist Sock/Fingering weight yarn. I am jashleyslc on ravelry.

Mary said...

I have wanted to learn to spin for a long time and would love to have this learn-to-spin kit. Such pretty fibers! I love them all. I would particularly love to make something with the Pink Karoke Batt.

jessecreations said...

I love the Thunderstorm art batt!

Germany Mom said...

Since I'm a beginner - this would be so perfect! And it's so beautiful too. I love her tangerine superwash.

Red said...

Oh my goodness, that OPALITE Alpaca, cashmere, and silk spinning batt is gorgeous! She has a lot of lovely things!

Sounds like weekend that could be potentially dangerous to the budget. If I were going to be there I'd want Dawn to bring me some LEMON LIME LATE NIGHT Sock/Fingering yarn 400 yards!

Dawn said...

I think the triangle project bags are great! My favorite is the polka dot blue and brown bag.

bschlot said...

I love all the colors, but my favorite of those listed is the "Cherry Blossom".

Just what I need, another addiction of fibery goodness! The spindle would be easier to hide than a spinning wheel however.

sherry said...

I do love her 'project' bags.
A person can't have enough of those or spindles!

alittleweirdo said...

The Opalite spinning batt is a lovely color and sounds heavenly! How can you go wrong with alpaca, cashmere and silk?

Heather P said...

I love my socks to stand out and Lemon Lime Late Night should would do the trick. It looks amazing!

TinkerTots said...

"Thunderstorm" looks absolutely luscious!

lauraelih said...

Oooh, I like her Lemon Lime Late Night sock yarn! Such vivid colors.

I like the Blue Swirl Superwash Sock Batt. Beautiful!

That Roaring 20's box looks like fun!

Carol said...

the plum pudding is plum pretty!

Perrin said...

the fiber club is very, very tempting

ZombieCat said...

I seriously can't pick just one thing! I literally want ALL of it! So that is my choice, everything!

Laurel said...

The triangle bags are so cool. And the lace weight yarn is such a good price for the yardage.

sherry said...

Lemon Lime Late Night is a great mix!

Jan L said...

I really like September's TANGERINE Superwash Roving. Superwash is so fun to spin.

helenlam said...

The DRINK ME Hand-Painted Lace Yarn 1300 yards is so pretty!

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I had a terrible shock when I went to Dawning Dreams shop this morning and it was closed. OH NO! Then I read it was because Dawn is visiting Jessie. OH YAY! Hope you both have a great time. I dug into the past sales and found this Opal Gemstone Whorled Drop Spindle. Truly lovely.

knitmomma said...

Wow, so much to love, I've found a new favorite! I narrowed it down to 3 favorites, and can't do better than that right now.
