Catawampus Beginning Spinnah Fibah !!


Giving new meaning to the word Catawampus ! Catawampus Farm sent in the most amazing samples for January's Chinese New Year box. One of them was a gorgeous "Fire Horse" Chinese zodiac batt and the other this amaaaazing beginning spinnah fibah! You will understand the spelling once you know that Catawampus Farm is in Maine :)

I have said it before, but I will say it again. I love supporting small fiber farms. Forgetting the myriad of benefits you reap by doing so, it just feels right. I encourage you to support this beautiful farm and your fiber habit at the same time.

Visit Catawampus Farm, find something you love, write about it in the comments section below and I will draw for a winner later in the week. Remember we will award extra entries for your facebook and twittering!

The horse-totemic in me is quite taken with the fire horse batt, but it's all scrumptious! I especially like the big chunky yarns and the pink/blue/gray yarns.hed

I love Catawampus fiber&yarn (I'm so in love with my Sage Femme scarf!) and everything's so yummy, but right now I especially like the Beginnah Spinnah Fibah Samplah itself :-)

knittaroo said...

Lovely fibre! I really like the Merino worsted in Bright Jeweltones, mmm.

mjm alicat's mom said...

Oh How I love this fiber -let me count the ways.
I think I am falling in love with catawampus. I just was mysteriously drawn to harvest moon I think it will be calling to me for many a night. but I must control myself - I have just learned to spin and I must finish what is on my drop spindle now before ordering more. and on a funnier note the word verification is abler. this is truely a sign you are an en-abler !

justkif said...

Very nice items but the Year of the Fire Horse Batt really caught my eye.
