Neurotic Knitterz Merino Tencel Giveaway!


I can't tell you how excited I am to see Maggie from Neurotic Knitterz grow into dyeing yarn and fiber! Yay! More ways to get a Maggie fix.... ;) I love all of the whimsical colorways she has in her shop right now... we've got stuff for Harry Potter Fans to Lord of the Rings even Steampunk.

I have to tell you though, I think the Happy Hydrangeas have my name on it- unless someone gets it first ;) And her patterns.... ahhh!

We're giving away this beautiful "Grape Pucker" Merino/Tencel braid which is a lovely purple that is almost blue and incredibly soft! Visit Neurotic Knitterz today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below.

Oh man i am a huge Harry Potter fan! i want to get the Haaaaary Poootter - 435 Yards SW Merino Wool, Cashmere, Nylon Blend Fingering Weight Sock Yarn - 4-ply and make a pair of socks to wear for the last movie in july!!

Reivenna said...

The Amethyst and Roses fingering weight is so spring-like and feminine to me.

Mara said...

The Midnight Rose top and the purple twilight colourway are my favourites!

Rochelle said...

It's so hard to look at her store and not buy anything. That strawberry pucker is the perfect shade of pink and is calling my name.

Els said...

The Midnight Rose Roving must be a joy spinning! It's my favorite

elendir said...

The Algae fingering sock yarn is totally awesome!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

I just love dark yarn with a bit of color in it, so Midnight, the worsted weight merino in black with bits of blue catches my eye immediately. It would be easy to leave this shop with a full shopping bag and an empty wallet, but the Midnight yarn is number one on my list.

Annette said...

Love me some apricot blush!

isisonearth said...

Oooooh...midnight rose...the violet tencel just really pops.

Minou14 said...

I love the Midnight Rose merino/tencel! Those subdued colors with the shine of tencel would be so pretty spun up. The giveaway colorway is great too!

Alex Levine said...

Harry Potter and Middle Earth are my favorites! Both colorways are absolutely gorgeous!

Melrose said...

The Merry Marigolds merino is calling my name! I may not be able to resist. . .

Erin said...

Ooh, the algae sock yarn is lovely!

KT said...

Wants the grape roving. Wants it, my precious.

I too love the algae merino/bamboo fingering yarn! But the Sapphique laceweight merino is to die for...

KT

Mirfain said...

That Purple Twilight silver-and-purple yarn is exquisite.

Allison O. said...

I'm still digging on the Lithos pattern... Just need some *time*!

marsha said...

I have serious love for The Last of the Sky Pirates mitts pattern. It's on my "must knit" list. If only I had four arms...or maybe 6...four knitting, two spinning...then I would need THREE pair of Sky Pirates mitts...

karmaperdiem said...

Oh, green lagoon--I must have you!!! Must!

Stacy said...

Ooh, the Chocolate Cupcake Merino Wool Worsted Weight Yarn is gorgeous!

folksmith said...

I absolutely love the Lithos shawl pattern. I NEED that pattern!

I really really like the Moon Rocks hat pattern that I believe was in the March Phat Fiber box ? I didn't get one this month..so I may have to just go and buy the pattern. Very very cool.

The Midnight Rose is so dark and complex, yet still pretty

Karla said...

Kathleen said...

I love the Grape Pucker

Anonymous said...

I just can't decide between the strawberry pucker and midnight rose colorways. Strawberry is so bright, Midnight rose is so mysterious. Love them both!!!

Tini said...

I just love the colours of sapphique! so vibrant! It would be a lovely cowl...

Flower Child said...

I spun around on my chair and about fell off when I saw the Grape Pucker, very cool. The strawberry pucker is just as nice. I am really drawn to the Happy Hydrangea and the Merry Marigold.

SJS said...

All those yarns are so pretty! But I think if I were to buy just one thing from the shop, it would be the Midnight Rose merino-tencel top!

Dovile said...

I'd like to knit with the Algae - 430 Yards Merino Wool Bamboo Blend Fingering Weight Sock Yarn. And I also love the Twilight Inspired - Rosalie Hale's Lace Scarf and the GREEN and SILVER - Striped Fingerless Mitts.

Silja said...

I really love the colors of her Luck O' the Irish roving.

andrea said...

Hello Neurotic Knitterz. Just visited your Esty Shop and immediately fell in love with your Sea Spray Naturally Dyed Merino. It's my idea of a perfectly color of yarn! I think I would use it to knit up the Lithos Shawlette pattern. Your talent is awesome!

I also like her Sea Shepherd's Cowl Pattern, I just wish she donated some of the money from the pattern to the organization. That would motivate me to buy it.
