If I had only one shop to choose from when shopping for fiber, I might just be completely satisfied with shopping at Woolie Bullie.

Brazen Stitchery Lace yarn giveaway!






Lace yarn is such a gift to knitters. There is usually a lot more yardage than other weights, and projects take longer to complete- which helps stretch your yarn budget and enjoyment. This yarn from Brazen Stitchery is ablaze with color! It's a merino laceweight called "District 12"- I think this certainly says "girl on fire" to me!

There are pages and pages of yarn, fiber, gift tags, and project bags waiting for you to peruse! I just love it when I see a shop chock full of goodies like Brazen Stitchery is!

Ok. I'm just going to say it. Don't go to this shop if you have any hope of leaving without checking out with a new fiber or yarn headed your way. It's really going to be difficult, so you may just want to enter knowing you'll be leaving with a little treat for yourself :).

I think this little "Alpaca Bird Nester" from Woodland Hills Alpacas is just the cutest thing! I was just watching the birds in my yard peck and scratch around and noticed all the winter birds that would be staying here through cold weather.

Shades of Light chunky weight yarn giveaway!

Today I woke up and it was so nice and cool outside, it got me all excited thinking about how wonderful it would be to start wearing hand knits. Hats especially. There really is nothing like wearing your hand knit hat out for the first time in Autumn. Everything seems right with the world.

We're giving away this gorgeous chunky weight yarn from Shades of Light today. I am thinking this skein would make an excellent knit hat, and the thickness of the yarn means you could have it done in less than a day.

Shades of Light is just bursting with beautiful yarnness. Angelika has organized her shop by yarn weight, and if you are looking for this lovely chunky yarn- look under the "London" category.

Please visit Shades of Light today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Before we draw for a winner, we'll be counting those social networking pings- twitter, facebook, ravelry, pinterest etc as extra entries!

Woodland Hills Alpaca Merino Roving giveaway!







We're giving away 4 oz of superwash merino from Woodland Hills Alpacas! We've featured their new line of "Candy Shop" fibers on the blog before, but this one is called "Skittles".

Well, I have to tell you. I am really close to buying myself one of the Woodland Hills Alpacas nuno felt scarf kits! They are so ethereal and lovely looking and I've always wanted to try nuno felting- how about you?

Fiber Fancy Ice Cream inspired Fiber giveaway!







Fudge Ripple, Caramel swirl and French Vanilla. Do those flavors elicit a visceral response from you? I kind of feel the same way when someone says "Alpca, Silk and Cormo". It just feels good! Diana from Fiber Fancy is smart like that. She knows you all love her stuff as much as ice cream. At least you should. :)

Fiber Fancy usually has a really fun spin a long going on and pages and pages of delicious yarn and fiber. Most of it is carefully hand dyed in small batches.

We are giving away a trio of Fiber Fancy fiber- Fudge Ripple is 2/3 alpaca and 1/3 corriedale, Caramel Swirl is 2/3 Alpaca and 1/3 Romney, and French Vanilla is 2/3 Finn and 1/3 Alpaca.

Wandering Wool Sock Yarn Giveaway!






I think this is the first time I've featured Wandering Wool's "High Peaks" sock yarn. It's so very scrummy people!  80/10/10 Superwash merino/cashmere/nylon and it's quite floofy and more on the DK side than fingering. 

If it's Wandering Wool, you know Joelle has taken the utmost care in dyeing a saturated, and consistent yarn. This particular colorway is aptly named "Mango" as it is a luscious yellow with sections of sweet coral reds and tart dark limes.

If you'd like to enter this giveaway, please visit Wandering Wool today, find something that you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those extra twitter, facebook, pinterest, plurk, blog updates about this as extra entries!

Bitsy Knits Artisan Sock giveaway!



Bitsy Knits should be one of those shops you have bookmarked on your favorite yarn stores folder on your browser. Bitsy has a consistency with her products that I find beautiful. She puts a lot of time  and thought into sourcing her materials, and the final results show.

I think most people are familiar with Bisty on the show circuit- as she keeps quite busy doing larger fiber events through the year. It's really comforting to know that you can get more of that special fiber you saw at an event with just a few clicks of the mouse. Steal some time away from the day, and drop in at Bisty Knits and see what's new!

We're giving this gorgeous plum colored sock yarn away today! Artisan sock has a wonderfully subtle thick-and-thin quality that adds interest to your knitting. Please visit Bitsy Knits, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those comments that let us know you've spread the word via pinterest, facebook, twitter, ravelry as extra entries as well!
