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 :)

The Superwash Merino Wool Roving in Fall Into The Deep is absolutely gorgeous. I-I don't think I can handle how gorgeous it is!

BlueKittyMeow said...

The Green With Envy batt! I've been trying to convince myself that I can't afford it right now (and I'm sure someone will snap it up now), but it's so appealing. It reminds me of rainy days and wearing rainboots and nice grays and greens. Sigh. Pinned and tweeted too.

Deb at Merciful Hearts Farm said...

Love the subtle colors of the merino wool batt in Golden!

veggiecat said...

I LOVE the gemstone drop spindles. There is a red/yellow one that I am coveting! I also love the superwash batts.

Everything is so lovely... but I stumbled onto her hats and I couldn't stop looking. I adore the As I Ventured Into The Woods hat. I keep coming back to it. She's got amazing talent!

Perfect for the beautiful weather we are having, and to compliment this fine spindle -- Dip Your Toes -- Mad Green and Blue Behemoth Batt. Sweeet!

Elaine said...

So many pretties...but, with St. Patrick's day just past, how can we say no to the Emerald Forest fiber?

Sarah K said...

So much lovely...

I really like the Superwash Wool Spinning Batt, 3 oz in "Sing Sweet" the most, I think. But it's a tough call, since they're all so nice, and those spindles... wow.

Annette sock2girl said...

Love that spindle...also love her Spotted Gear Spindle

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

The rich blue of the Mulberry Silk Sliver in Driink of Me, OOAK, 3.4 oz / 97 g makes my heart sing. It makes me sing, too. My heart sings better than I do.

Katya said...

I love the brown and blue color of her "Down by the Pond" batt.

Suzanne said...

Can't stop looking at all of the gear shaped drop spindles, they are all lovely!

I love the touches of color in the gemstone spindles! Not something I'd seen before, and I really like it. That said.. I'm in total love with a looot of the roving colorways. The bamboo in Sing Me a Sea Shanty! <3

Am I the only one who had problems with the CAPTCHA? It kept telling me that I had typed it in wrong, and that's why I accidentally posted more than once. Sorry!

I love the "Down by the Pond" batt! Actually, I love most everything she has but for the sake of this post, I will limit myself to one.

camphillpeaches said...

I love me some angora!!

domesticish diva said...

I love her spindles!! I really love the Top Drop Spindle, 1.2 oz /32 grams. It's got a beautiful turquoise detail on the top. So pretty!! :)

Karen said...

OMG, what lovely things!!! Hard to choose!

I really was taken by Bamboo/Rayon Roving in Vine Ripened Transitional. But the spindles all wanted me to buy them. Then other fibers! ARRRGGGHHHH!!!! How to pick?! I wish I had the money to afford it all.

Karen aka purplepenguin

JD said...

I love the cocktail hour colorway so much I would spin any fiber or combination of fiber in those colors. Sooo pretty!

cthulhulovesme said...

The spindle posted is gorgeous. I also like the Emerald Forest superwash wool spinning fiber.

Linda said...

The Double Trouble gear spindle looks like the one for me, although I like all of the gear spindles that don't have stone donuts.

Turtle said...

lots of lovely goodies, i love the Woods hat, this spindle is very interesting! Would love to play with it while spinning around the camp fire on weekends!

chastitycatt said...

This spindle is the very item I've been eyeing in her shop! The only reason I haven't already snapped one up is because I don't know how to spin. Yet.

Jairia said...

Ooooh, I seriously love all the drop spindles :P and this roving in particularly: http://www.etsy.com/listing/90042588/bamboorayon-roving-squash-4-oz

Colourful strange little girl said...

So much to choose from!
I love the spindles, the steampunk element of them.

And I really love Tangled! Great colours.

Antechinus said...

I love the pastel-coloured superwash roving and the wooden gear spindles... beautiful.

love2crochet4fun on Ravelry said...

I love Merino Wool Roving, Tall Drink of Water and like Dark Wood Top Drop Spindle (oh the other ones are so much prettier, but I learned on one like that)

Lynnette from Ravelry said...

If I had to chose one drop spindle I think I'd pick "double trouble", but the gemstone weights are pretty spectacular too! An ounce of the English Angora fiber would be excellent (but I'd want a picture of the bunny to go with it).

Zabelle said...

Wow what a wanderful spindle! Love her sens of colors. Maybe Tall drink of water

Feffie said...

The Mad Magenta and Peaches Behemoth Batt, 6 ounces/170.097 g (9) is lovely, reminds me of summer <3

Gynx said...

The batt "Sing Sweet" is so pretty!

leslie said...

I like all her batts but Cranberry Party is my fav.

I don't know how to spin, but would love to learn! The gemstone spindles are really eye-catching. The wool all looks so yummy. I love the pinks and the blues! Oh, and the greens. Thank you for the entry!

Kaninen said...

"Fall into the deep"-colourway is just so magnetic. Wow! My eyes were immediatly drawn to it.

Chinchillas1957 said...

Always lovely stuff in the shop - the gear spindles are up there on my wish list, all are nice, but I really love the 1.8 oz with the blue gemstone. Steampunk inspired art is always fun, and for me these spindles are a great design for use too - I have a lot of trouble with perfectly smooth whorls. Just ordered a few dozen different key and faux watch cases to make ornaments for next Christmas...which will include charms I purchased at Dawning Dreams last year.

LMH said...

I would love to learn how to spin! Especially when there are lovely colors like Bamboo Rayon Roving Top, Mulberry Wine to spin!

I love the idea of the gear drop spindles. One problem I've had with drop spindles is that my yarn doesn't catch to be spun.

Jessica Jo said...

Elariel said...

Hi, I just love everything in her shop so it is really hard to pick just one thing to focus on, although if I must, I do really like the Dip Your Toes batt. I love turquoise colors and this batt has such a pretty mixture of turquoise and other colors.
