Knit by Design Falkland giveaway!


It's coming up on April soon, which means we should all be thinking about stocking up for Tour de Fleece! Tour de Fleece is where we spin (or knit!) every day of the Tour de France!
Take a look at Knit by Design's lovely fiber shop and take advantage of Shea's reasonable pricing on fiber and yarn!

If you got a March box, you may have been able to sample some of Shea's gorgeous alpaca/merino yarn in Alchemist's Gold. I loved that she was inspired by Alchemy for this month's Blinded by Science theme. Really, isn't that what all fiber artists do? An alchemy of turning ordinary yarn and fiber into priceless works of art!

Wandering Wool Rock Creek Sock Giveaway!


I just finished a shawl I've been working on for a while. I am wondering if any of you get that itch right after you finish something- like you've got to find the perfect project to trump the last one? I'm feeling it today, and looking at Wandering Wool's shop makes it feel more like a fever than an itch!

Wandering wool
does semi-solids like Paddington does marmalade. What's even more awesome is she occasionally puts things on clearance and you get stuff at an amazing price. Not that her prices now aren't amazing, but you know!

We're giving away this skein of her Rock Creek Sock yarn in her "Aurora Borealis" colorway. Which, let me tell you, is so beautiful it hurts (especially if you like deep cool colors like me!)

Please visit Wandering Wool today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those extra social networking pings as entries too, so shout out on Facebook, twitter, pin this on pinterest, etc!

The Critter Ranch Goo Baby giveaway!


Not really a goo baby! Fiber inspired by goo! ;) The Critter Ranch sent in some of the most lovely green Llama (with a hint of sparkle) to the March box and now we're giving a way a full sized version. You can see me fondle this stuff on the March video!

Seriously, if you haven't been to The Critter Ranch's shop lately, Go! You're bound to find something you can't spin/knit without! And if you can get some Llama, please try some of Sue's. It's super nice, beautifully dyed, and very clean!

Dawning Dreams Spindle Giveaway!


I think spring is an excellent time to learn to spin! We have a lot of spinning events coming up this summer, it would be great to see everyone participate in!

Dawning Dreams
is such a lovely place to visit online! And, Dawn herself, I consider to be a friend and I'm so glad to know her. She can sit down with endless patience and warp a loom, bend wires for shawl pins, card a batt, spin a yarn, etc. etc. I jokingly call her D.I.Y. Dawn ;)

We're giving away this beautiful hand made wooden drop spindle Dawn has created. This design looks so very much like gears and I love the idea of a wooden gear- anything, but drop spindle just puts it over the top! To enter this giveaway, please visit Dawning Dreams, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing for a winner this weekend :)
