Steampunk Chessie Fiber Giveaway!


I have to say, this Steampunk Chessie fiber is AMAZING! It's super soft, deep purple and has a hint of sparkle- and you know how I love my sparkle!

If you haven't visited Friends in Fiber lately, you haven't gotten your recommended dose of the "Spin Free or Dye" ladies and that is a real shame! Let me tell you, Jan and Peg are two talented fiberistas! And because I love you, I'm going to let you know that they have a whole section that is 20% off right now. Tee hee! Aren't you glad you have me watching your back? ;)

We're giving away this gorgeous Steampunk Chessie Batt! Just visit Friends in Fiber, find something that strikes your fancy and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week and remember we will award extra entries for helping spread the good word about the Spin Free or Dye gals!

OOoh, "Autumn in New Hampshire" is my perfect colors!

A. Hiscock said...

Love Autumn in New Hampshire, but Elegant Eggplant catches my eye, too. And I positively salivate every time I click on the "Steampunk" batt listing. Seriously, that saturated purple is exquisite!

Alexander the Great said...

The lilac dreams spinning fiber is gorgeous. =)

Perrin said...

Look no further. The Eggplant is a winner

Nuri said...

You aren't kidding! That Chessie sample was wonderful to spin. I have been lusting over that gold Angora/Cashmere batt ever since I investigated the shop!

Tas said...

that alpaca silk uptown chessie is just gorgeous!

Marina said...

I could not choose just one yarn or roving to comment on because they are all so beautiful!! The rich, deep, and intense color is amazing, especially the deep plum colors!! So I'm commenting on the Lavender Bottle Wands! They are so awesome!!! I've never seen anything like them!!! I cannot wait to get mine!!!

Alpaca Silk Uptown Chessie is beautiful. Purple is one of my favorite colours and looks so delicious.

Kittn said...

I loved the fibers from that store so much that I've added it to my favorites. And the Cranberry BFL is haunting me right now, begging me to buy it. My bank account says I can't afford it till Thursday, but my heart says it's so pretty it will be gone by then. What is a girl to do?!

SovereignCrux said...

I am already in love with the Angora/Merino/Silk Handspun.. Now if only I could save up enough to knit my boyfriend a sweater from it, I think cuddling up to him this winter would be that much more heavenly. =P

A cowl made from the baby camel handspun would be wonderful!

Brenda said...

Victoria Barton's FB linky sent me here. Oh I'm drooling over any and all the cashmere especially the angora/cashmere batts. I've been knitting a cowl for this coming winter and that cashmere would be so heavenly against my neck. !~sigh~!

Ooo! Love everything, especially the Hand Dyed Ratatouille BFL <3 Sharing this on Facebook and Twitter :)

~Seacow said...

I'm laughing over the needle eggplant. That is such a cool thing to see!

I like the pumpkin patch because it has a pumpkin in the middle of it. Such a neat thought put into it!

laceykristina said...

I actually just bought Uptown Chessie alpaca/silk roving and a corriedale batt from Friends in Fiber. I'm definitely thinking a scarf or cowl out of the alpaca/silk roving, I want that fiber on my skin!

alittleweirdo said...

Love the Cranberry Fog and Pumpkin Patch BFL top. Lovely fall colors!

robin said...

I just love the handspun alpaca/silk Uptown Chessie

Camille Gervasio said...

I already have some elegant eggplant, otherwise that would be at the top of my list. I have been admiring the cranberry bog BFL. I also think that Pat's hand spun is amazing. I especially admire her elegant eggplant.

knitmomma said...

LOVE!!!! Wow, the October Phat Fiber Alpaca/Silk Batt 2 oz. (which I think is the same as this giveaway) is amazing, as are both Angora/Cashmere Batts 2 oz. I'm partial to black angora.

Elegant Eggplant keeps calling my name. Beautiful!

Corvi44 said...

I'm into purple & glittering & glistening batts (that's the crow in me :) and when I saw the "October [PhF] Alpaca/Silk Batt" I stopped like a Deer in Headlights. Wow! Then I kept looking around and saw the Angora/Cashmere in the Dusky Lavender (drooled over that one); the Angora/Cashmere-"Ruslan on the Moss"--which screams "Spin Me" or at least "Cuddle Up with Me"; Tasha, the WonderBunny's Fawn Angora; and the Needle Felted Eggplant (which my master gardener friend would adore). Congrats to the Friends of Fiber's presentation--especially with the Elegant Eggplant Needle Felted Sampler Pack. Kudos on making me want to stick my hand through the monitor to pick up a batt several times! Also, their clever Design Your Own BFL/Silk Batt. _But_ Hands Down: My favorite was the Handspun Alpaca/Silk Uptown Chessie Oct. PhF. 80/20. Between the over dyeing & the 3-ply, the color play is just amazing. (I know they said 4 colors, but I think there's more--or my monitor needs adjusting :o) What a creative duo of accomplished carders, dyers, and spinners!

I'm torn between the October Steampunk 2 oz batt and the Eggplant handspun.

Rudy's Mom said...

What great fiber. Pumpkin patch BFL caught my eye. And then the Cranberry Swirl batt. And then the handspun camel. And Elegant Eggplant.

AnneMarie said...

I want to spin Autumn in New Hampshire BFL. Fabulous depth of color.

elendir said...

Mmm, the "Cranberry Swirl" batt for me. *swoons* Red is one of my new favorite colors, and the batt is so intensely red! And not just that, but shades of red.

In fact, I'll bookmark that RIGHT NOW!

Anayte said...

Obviously I loved the Chessie batt, but the handspun alpaca/silk yarn looks really yummy!

Corvi44 said...

I went back to FiF so that I could email my Guild, and sadly some one scooped up that luscious ultra purple/eggplant batt. Rats! But there's plenty for any guild member to buy--and time for me to get something asap! Thanks Jessie for the HINT; because I get so busy, I sometimes forget to respond to the business cards & samples that take my breath away.

Love the Alpaca Silk roving - Uptown Chessie in the dark purple and green, and the felted eggplant.
