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!

To enter this fiber giveaway, please visit Knit by Design today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. You may pin this, facebook, twitter etc for extra entries!

Your link is broken! :( I got to the shop by copying out the etsy address, though. :)

I think I'd go with the Purple Rain yarn skein in merino, alpaca, and silk. It's lovely!

Being a purple lover I adore the Just Plum Good. It has beautiful shimmer and looks so soft. But I also love the Falkland Spring Stream or Wildflowers because both would make a gorgeous needle felted hat for spring!

Hi, I love so many things in your shop! I love the colorways you have in your rovings...some in particular I love are the bfl in spring streams and falkland in plumeria. I also really like the stormy sunset in merino/bamboo. I think you do a great job dying bringing out the pale pastel colors while also being able to accomplish bringing out dark and vibrant colorways. =)
