Gloria Patre Spindle Giveaway!



Yeah!! Let's start the New Year off right! I know some of you are resolved to learn to spin in 2011! In November, we were very lucky to have mini spindles in the Phat Fiber Boxes provided by Monica of Gloria Patre. They were so popular and I'm excited that Monica is stocking her shop with them!

Monica just celebrated 4 years of blogging on here blog: http://lazyknitterchronicles.blogspot.com/ She had a giveaway going, but I can't seem to find the post for you right now! Congratulations, Monica and keep up the good work!

Monica is giving away this gorgeous imitation bone spindle in honor of our January theme: Chinese New Year and her blogiversary! Please visit Gloria Patre, find something you love, and come back here and write about it. Be sure and leave a way for us to find you if you win!.

Wow. The Electric Spring Green Variscite Stone Drop Spindle Top Whorl. Wow. I recently started spinning & having another spindle = having another project on the go. I'm all for it!

I'm charmed by the Sea Star Mother of Pearl and Sweet Pink Flower Shawl Pin /43. It's simple, elegant, affordable, unique and lovely. It, and several other shawl pins, is now on my wish list. It'd look splendid on a hand spun, handknitted shawl.

Oh wow - where do I begin! I love the featured spindle and all her others...especially the metal filigree mini spindle. I also really like the mini wooden knitting needles/shawl pins and her paintings/cards are just beautiful. I'm really wondering why I haven't splurged yet. I think I'd go broke if I looked at her shop too much! I really want a fancy new spindle!

I'm in LOVE!!! That Green Moss Agate spindle is gorgeous!!! Lol..it might just have to jump into my etsy cart ;)

TheDrollEclectic said...

Her spindles are lovely, but I think her artwork may outshine them just a bit! Lovely! Will be ordering cards soon.

KJo said...

She has some really cool stuff in her shop, but my favorite item would be the Double Dragon Cinnabar Drop Spindle Bottom Whorl. I love dragons, so this would be a great one to learn to spin on, don't you think?

All of Gloria's drop spindles are lovely, but I admit to being a fan of the Electric Spring Green Variscite Stone Drop spindle - the yellow shaft really makes it!

Oh my! That spindle is gorgeous! So are the cinnibar and the carved jade spindles in her shop! And the stone and mother of pearl and cinnibar shawl pins . . . and . . . and . . .

mary jo said...

I love the dragon spindle and would be thrilled to win it. I am detirmined to learn to spin this year.

Envirogirl said...

Love all the knitting and spinning charms! Too Cute.

Marlitharn said...

So many pretty things! I really liked the mother of pearl spindle. (My husband has been encouraging me to learn to spin because he thinks spinning my own yarn would be cheaper than buying it. Silly man.)

LeiLaniSue said...

Of course, the giveaway spindle is gorgeous, but I love the Plum Rose Jasper Stone Drop Spindle!

Janette said...

Wow at the things in her store! I really liked the Electric Spring Green Variscite Stone Drop Spindle though

What a hard choice to choose just one item! The Plum Rose Jasper Stone Drop Spindle Top Whorl caught my eye with it's gorgeous coloring.

Jean Ashley said...

The spindle is lovely, and I covet the Midnight Chocolate wool pencil roving...

Lorrie said...

The bone carved spindle is beautiful!

Wyldchai said...

The cinnabar carved shawl pins are gorgeous, and I also swooned when I saw the ocean colored BFL Silk.

Jessica said...

There are too many pretty things to choose from! I really like all the drop spindles and the cinnabar beads, esp the one with the bird!

MadHouseWitch said...

This spindle is GORGEOUS! I have a thing for dragons, though I mostly prefer the "Western" type of dragon over the "Eastern" type... although I really like them both. My Mom was a Dragon in Chinese astrology (passed on 2001) and my Birthday once fell on the start of the Chinese new year of the dragon. I also really like all of the other spindles (I have not even started spinning yet I am waiting for my first spindle to get here!) and I am obsessed with spindles already!
And I always love any stitch markers that are done in that style!
