Spotted Circus Grinchy Fiber Giveaway!

I am working on taking all of my Christmas decor down today. Normally, I wait until after New Year's but I've got a big project going on that I'm excited about. BUT before you put all of your holiday stuffs away, check out this "Grinchy Green" fiber from Spotted Circus! I seriously love this base! Yummy Alpaca/bfl/milk and firestar! She's even included some delicious, red, Banana silk "heartstrings' in there for you!

I know some of you got some mad money this holiday! Why not treat yourself to a SAL or club from a a phattie? I have never seen Game of Thrones, but it feels like I have listening to my sister talk about it. I'm sure I'll come around and watch it, but someone telling you over and over you should watch a thing, makes you kind of not want to. Anyway, looks like Spotted Circus has 3, 6 and 12 month options available too! A gift that will keep on giving!

Visit Spotted Circus today, find something you love, and write it here in the comments section. Please use your social networking pings and gain extra entries by the time we draw for a winner (later this week).

Light Brown Hare Yarn Giveaway!

 I am finding it difficult to try to find the words to express how special I think this Light Brown Hare giveaway is. Firstly, it's sock yarn, and everyone needs it. Secondly, it's really really good yarn- LOVE, love this jackrabbit base. Thirdly, it's 6 freaking ounces!! SIX! Fourthly, look at the color- wow! Just. Wow. It's called Crispin's Day and I really really love it!

Ok, I may have used up my exclamation point quota for this blogpost, so I'll try to calm down and tell you about all the other awesomeness that awaits you in the Light Brown Hare shop. Four pages of immersion dyed yarny gorgeousness, that's what! (oops).

Please visit Light Brown Hare today, find something you love, and come back and write about it below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, so be sure and use facebook, twitter, plurk, pinterest or another social network of your choosing to gain extra entries!

Bitsy Knits Carded Batt Giveaway!





Bitsy has a new carder! I think it must be a special magical carder to create batts as soft as these!! This one is called "Fall in Sonoma". It has SW Merino, Seacell, Corriedale and viscose in it. Delicious!

I knit Bitsy's "Jenna" Shawl for my Mother last year for Christmas. It was my first beaded lace project and Bitsy's pattern was perfect for dipping my toes in. I actually really loved it! The lace pattern was easily memorized too. I used Bitsy's lace yarn, and it was all around a lovely project and one of My Mom's favorite shawls.

We're giving away this beautiful batt! Please visit Bitsy Knits today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner very soon, so hurry and get those social networking tweets, updates, plurks etc! We'll count them as extra entries!

Breezy Ridge Alpacas Baby Suri Fiber Giveaway!


Breezy Ridge Alpacas is within a few hours drive of me- so sort of local! It's always nice to support local fiber whenever you can and so I would like to take the time to showcase this beautiful lavender heather suri alpaca that Connie has sent in for a giveaway.

One of the things I really admire about Breezy Ridge Alpacas is all of the natural colors that are available. The black alpaca is a true deep rich black black. It can be hard to find natural black without a lot of brown in it, but I was amazed when I saw the Breezy Ridge black!

How frustrating for me yesterday! I didn't have internet and couldn't post this beautiful giveaway!

I am so very excited to be giving away a full sized 1.5 oz version of her loose and dyed cashmere and tussah silk twists.

Funhouse Fibers Fibery giveaway!


We've got a lovely giveaway from Funhouse Fibers today! Miki sent in 2 large samples of her work- one beautifully toxic looking braid of BFL and gorgeously dyed Muwata silk hankies in the "finding nemo" colorway. Both so beautiful, and so soft!! I can imagine them plied together for a striking yarn!

The name says it all! Funhouse fibers is really FUN to shop with! I like visiting Miki's shop on days like today (cold and rainy) for some color therapy. Usually something jumps into my cart too- I can't really help it!!

Out of Step Dyeworks DKyarn giveaway!


I used to say "happiness is hand knit socks on a cold day". I think I will amend it to "happiness is handknit anything made from Out of Step Dyework's MCN DK yarn especially in the Nanobot colorway" (pictured above!). This stuff is a dreamy blend of superwash merino and cashmere! And doesn't everything you want to knit require DK weight yarn?

I am lately developing and unhealthy obsession with the colors gray and purple. Looking at Out of Step Dyeworks' etsy shop this morning is not helping abate it! I love all of Amy's work, but I'm really yarn crushing on her October Phat Fiber box submissions!

We're giving away this beautiful skein of DK yarn (cashmere, people!) in the Nanobot colorway today. Please visit Out of Step Dyeworks, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, so please facebook, twitter, blog, ravelate about this for extra entries!
