GalesArt Amethyst and Rust Giveaway!



Drooling yet? I am! Gales Art created an amazing colorway for the October box- Amethyst and Rust is just glorious! I love these colors and I can't wait to see someone spin this up. The gold playing off of the amethyst is full of win.

I am a huge fan of Gale's work- especially the BFL swirl fiber- yum!! I have yet to spin this luxurious bfl/silk combo but it looks incredibly divine!

We're giving away this 4 oz of bfl/silk in Amethyst and Rust! Just visit Galesart, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Your extra FB updates and twittering will net you additional entries!

Gale's shop is already one of my favorites. She always has such unique colorways. I am totally in love with the Moldy Pumpkin Batt. Yummy!

Chris said...

The Opal sock yarn really does look like opals - fabulous!

soula said...

I love the eggplant tussah. Also, er, that rust and amethyst kind of rocks my world.

Paulette said...

I received a mini skein of the Moldy Pumpkin sock yarn in a mini skein swap and it is GORGEOUS! I love the gold, orange, green and violet together and what a creative name!

SJS said...

Moldy Pumpkin? Oh, it looks so much better than it sounds! I would proudly spin that in public!

I got a sample of the moldy pumpkin roving and it is awesome!

Misty Northrop said...

I love the Deep Blue Sea roving. Her colors are so rich.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I love all the colors of the sock yarn. It is a hard decision between Opal and Deep Sea Blue to be my favorites.

I love the colors in the sample batt, too.

AnneMarie said...

Gotta love Proud peacock - overdyed dark BFL - and since I'm currently carding overdyed dark fiber using Phat fiber samples to add color and sparkles, I love it even more!

Rachael said...

Love the moldy pumkin roving!
Twitter too...@silhouette169

garilynn said...

Torn between the Lime and Real Olive. Then there's the decision of BFL or Merino.

Rainlover said...

I love the Moldy Pumpkin sock yarn, and the Crayon Box Roving. Its all so pretty :)

I love the Amethyst and Rust braid! The color combo is fabulous!

Love the moldy pumpkin blueface swirl - although it's all beautiful!

jessecreations said...

One of these days I am going to spin her Crayon box roving!!!! I also love this amethyst/rust colorway, and pretty much everything else of Gale's!

Jan L said...

Really! How hard can it be to find something you like at Gales Art. Ever since I got my first box with one of her samples in it, I just drooled.
My current favorite is the Moldy Pumpkin done on the BF Swirl. Oh, love,love,love!

~Seacow said...

That seaweed colorway is so beautiful. I just love the sheen and shine and *drools*

Alison said...

What lovely saturated colors! I'm liking the "Proud Peacock" roving.

Carla said...

Find something you love- well I went and I love it ALL!

Tara said...

The colorway being given away is very pretty, and I also really like the Moldy Pumpkin colorway, even if the name isn't the most appealing to me

Sheralynn said...

Like most everyone, I still love Moldy Pumpkin. I got it in my September box, and fell in love spinning it, watching the colours change as it slipped past my fingers, just spinning up like a dream. Ah... It was so so lovely. I'd buy more in a heartbeat if I had money to spend!!

alittleweirdo said...

Love the Seaweed roving! Great colors!

Lael said...

I've always liked the Crayon Box rovings and yarns.

jaustin said...

Its hard to choose between the moldy pumpkin roving and the grape vine roving. I love them both!

sherry said...

Gorgeous colorways.
Of course, the one offered would be a perfect compliment to a fiber that I dyed up!
Gimme, please!

I love the color choices for the merino or BFL fibers...leaning towards lime or olive.

EVA SB said...

Loved it so much I bought peacock and crayons.

Tia said...

The Moldy Pumpkin BFL roving is divine. :g

Carlin said...

Crayon Box would just be so much fun!

Nuri said...

I love her Blueface/Silk fiber, but I've also had my eye on a few of the Blueface Swirl colorways. Moldy Pumpkin is neat, and she doesn't have the others up, but the Velvet Elvis colorway she has at Rhinebeck this year was GORGEOUS!

redzshadow said...

I am loving the Moldy Pumpkin sock yarn.

lauraelih said...

I love pretty much everything there...but today's favorite is the Real Olive roving.

Kristen said...

I love the roving - sunflower (merino or blueface wool).

Kristin said...

Mmmmmmm...love the opal sock yarn. It really does make me think of an opal. Nicely done!

I love pretty much all the rovings.

Melanie said...

I love all the rich colors but I would have to say the lime in my favorite. Its so rich in the silk

Robin said...

I love the opal sock yarn.Opal is my birthstone!

Khat (from Ravelry) I love so many of her colors that it's hard to choose just one, but my absolute favorite has to be proud peacock.

PixelatedMushroom said...

Grape Vine! Grape Vine! So pretty!

Love that the pics show some of it spun up too!

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I'm undecided between Proud Peacock and Autumn Fire. I guess Peacock wins by a nose, since fires don't have noses?

Tera said...

I am loving the Moldy Pumpkin roving!

gabriellemarin said...

The moldy pumpkin roving is lovely...despite the name.

Kathleen said...

The Proud Peacock roving is so pretty. I'm a felter (and knitter) and this looks so delicious--just begging to be made into a bag or something!
