Knittink Vegan Spinning sampler giveaway


I have to say, I'm in love with this fiber! Now that KnittinK is back from the Boston Bazare- How did that go, Ady?! I can post this gorgeous giveaway! I snatched some of this fiber up right away, because it's so incredibly soft and because it's vegan!

I'm going to get a little personal here. 2010 will be known in my life as the year I stopped eating animal products (well, except honey ;)). After my car accident, I was not able to "stomach" eating many of the foods I was used to consuming and after a lot of research, I decided to begin eating a plant based diet. This has lead to some other exciting changes in my life, and I'm loving learning about vegan fibers! I want to personally thank Ady for filling a need in the spinning community with these vegan offerings!

We're giving away this vegan fiber sampling, from Knittink November contributions based on League of Extraordinary Gentleman! Just visit KnittinK today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Remember, extra points for Facebook and Twitter pings!

As a comic book geek I LOVE the idea of comic inspired colorwas!
I really can't decide between the invisible man or mina harker colorways. The gray makes the colors pop so much.

My favorite is the November Phat Fiber Mina Harker colorway. Very pretty!

Caroline said...

The colors in Jekyll and Hyde are awesome together! I'd really love to try some of the faux cashmere, it sounds quite intriguing.

Stacy said...

The Captain Nemo colorway is awesome and I love that it is book/comic book inspired. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is a great book.

AdyBee said...

I've also got new yarns posted in my new shop: www.DyeKnittinKDye.com Cheers!

Chris said...

Love the concept for the November sampler! All the colorways are great, but I'll have to go with The Invisible Man if forced to choose!

Diane said...

I love League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Great stuff!

pocketsize said...

I like the Allan Quartermain fibre. The colours call to me.

Also, I would recommend everybody that hasn't done so to read "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen", as it is really good. I am aware there was a movie of it, but please try to forget it: it doesn't do the graphic novel any justice!

Southern Mystic said...

Ady is one of my very favorite indie fiber artists! She does amazing work. My favorite fingerless mitts are from her spinning fiber! That Polwarth fiber really is amazing!

How can I pick a favorite? So many lovelies! From her personal page (not the Etsy store), Koi Pond remains a favorite, but I think this time around, I'm going to have to pick "The Corn Fields of Smallville!" Gonna tweet this one too @southern_mystic.

Turtle said...

ooooh! Cyclone and BIFF are fantastic! bookmarked this seller, lol, being a vegan myself i love the name!

Rainlover said...

What a fun shope, I love the Zombie My Little Pony fiber, looks just so squishy and looks like it would spin up amazing

I love the colors of the "invisibility cloak" on polwarth fibers. They are just beautiful!

The Aunt May yarn is very pretty! I like the "old lady" colors

SJS said...

Hey, congratulations on the ethical eating! I'm getting there myself, but can't bring myself to stop eating yogurt.

Anyway, I love the geekiness of this shop. My absolute favorite is the polwarth top in My Little Zombie Pony.

PenelopeRose said...

The names cracked me up. I love The Endless, Polwarth Spinning Fiber! Gorgeous!

Tommie said...

That is gorgeous fiber! My diet is also fully plant based except for honey. However I haven't been able to give up my love of wool :-) My fave over on her Etsy store is the Rose Red, Fables, Superwash Merino Spinning fiber. That color is amazing - maybe it's just the season.

Kathleen said...

I couldn't wait and had to order Selena Kyle's nailpolish.

LOVE the comic book theme! Hubby and I ran a comic store, way back in the dark ages.

I love the November Phat Fiber PreOrder for The Invisible Man VEGAN - seems like it would be so much fun to spin all sorts of ways!
