Create Your Own Spice Batt from All for Love of Yanr Giveaway!

Last month was our beautiful "Spice Market" box. I meant to do this giveaway a long time ago- but when my emergency remodel reared its head, I put it out of my mind! This is SO MUCH FUN! For those of you who don't have a drum carder (and those that do but want to save your arms for a bit lol) this is your chance to play with colors and have a pro blend your batt for you! I hope Angela of All for Love of Yarn decides to keep this feature (maybe switch the colors every so often) for good!

Angela made me a beautiful batt and it was like she read my mind- I said something like "like this but with more blue" and she cranked out one of those I'm-going-to-put-you-on-a-shelf-and-look-at-you batts! I'm telling you, this is what you need for the upcoming tour de fleece!

You might have also noticed that All for Love of Yarn won Shearlock and Sonata's choice award for May! We're giving away the chance to create your own unique batt using the fibers in the above picture. Just visit All for Love of Yarn today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be counting your twitter and facebook updates as extra entries!

I have used some of her Lublu yarn and LOVE how it wears and washes... great stuff! I have also used a bit of her opulence for a swatch experiment and think that is great too.... BUT -- I love the feel of the Resplendence.. ahh, that silky feeling... ^_^ I have not touched her newest yarns ..yet... but I am certain they are equally great! Angela is wonderful at what she does!
