Pickin and Spinning Luna Moth Roving Giveaway!



I love this month's theme! I love luna moths! I love that Kim of Pickin and Spinning created this beautiful bamboo and merino roving for a giveaway!

If you're a new spinner, and a little concerned about trying to spin bamboo, but are enchanted by it's gossamer glossiness, fear no more! Try a blend with wool and you will have an easier time spinning it than straight bamboo (which takes a little more practice).

We're giving away this beautiful Luna Moth Roving from Pickin and Spinning today! Just visit the shop, find something you love, and come back here and write about it in the comments section below. Extra points if you let your facebook and twitter friends know about it!

Really, I think Luna Moth is my favorite - and it translates so well to yarn, too!

Erin said...

The luna moth fiber is hands down my fave thing in the shop, but the butterfly stitch marker set is awfully cute, too.

Loved the Luna moth in both the roving and the lace weight merino/silk yarn.

Given that Chicago is still gross and cold, the Desert Rose BFL looks just perfect

TinkerTots said...

I love the Luna Moth! But also Tip Toe Through the Tulips in fiber and Paper Lantern in yarn. Lovely, subtle colors!

I'm hoping that some more stitch marker holder necklaces will show up in her shop. There was one I wanted last month, but I didn't have the money when I saw it and by the time I did, it was gone . . . I love her row counter necklace.

Gina Power said...

I really like the Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head Knitting Stitch Markers. There is something about pretty stitch markers that make knitting even more fun :)

wishuponafarm said...

While I love her stitch markers, it's always fiber I'm drawn to first. I have to pick the Luna Moth Merino Wool Bamboo Roving Top 4 oz

Natalie Servant said...

Oooh, Desert Rose Superwash BFL Roving Top is great. And the Luna Moth is wonderful.

Silja said...

Oh my! I expected to actually have to look at the things in this store to make a decision, carefully ruling out things, but this time my choice is very clear, the Eddie Izzard Bees Stitch markers!

They make me think of being covered in bees, and I just can't stop laughing!
