Funhouse Fibers BFL and Milk fibers giveaway!





Have you ever discovered a fiber shop online and get so excited you start clicking madly, and be fore you know it, have a shopping cart full of goodies? This is going to be your first and final warning: Funhouse Fibers is addictive. Seriously. Miki should put labels on her stuff- "colors may cause temporary lack of rational judgement".

I hope you'll treat yourself this Friday, and visit Funhouse Fibers to see what's going on over there. I think you'll agree with me, it's like therapy for the fiber artist soul :) I'm so excited we're giving away this heathery gradient BFL in "Life's a Boat" and the gorgeous milk fiber in "Lavender Fields" colorway!

To enter this giveaway, please visit Funhouse Fibers today, find something that you'd like to talk about, and write about it in the comments area below. When we draw for a winner, we'll count those facebook, pinterest, plurk, twitter updates as extra entries!

Pewter aran weight for me! What a gorgeous silvery sheen on that yarn....

Brittany said...

Oh, I already know what I love in her shop! There a braid called Colorplay that I have been trying to resist for a while.

Antechinus said...

Mmm it's all lovely... I especially like the gradient colourways on Shetland fibre - that Moroccan Sunset is amazing.

Amy said...

The Blue Lagoon Bamboo is lovely. So shiny!

A. Hiscock said...

Good Earth, English toffee (on lovely shiny bamboo, no less, so it really looks like toffe!), and Freshly-Mown Grass -- lovely!

Tia said...

The Morocco mawata is amazing!

lesley58 said...

Guilty pleasure looks amazing, I love all the different colors!

Ely said...

I love the good earth merino-silk. And the indian corn and.. and.. and.. My poor credit card.

Jessica Jo said...

I love that heathery base. I think their Blue Lagoon Bamboo top is amazing looking, and the sheen of the bamboo adds tot he impression of being in a lagoon, but I've never worked with straight bamboo before. Would that be more difficult since I'm so used to wool and the crimp and elasticity?

Debbie said...

Rainbow Brite - English Shetland is my fav! Thanks!

Kara said...

I think Funhouse Fibers has to be one of my new favorite shops! Amazing colors! I love both the braids in the giveaway and the "Ombre green alpaca merino silk." I especially love them because green is a little out of my comfort zone, but their greens are so lovely that I know I wouldn't have any trouble making them into something lovely. I think the ombre green would make a truly stunning lace shawl!

Rebecca said...

Love the rainbow brite roving

Kara said...

I tweeted! (User: mamahobbit)

cthulhulovesme said...

oooh, I love the Freshly Mown Grass on Polwarth-silk.

Lindsay said...

Neptune is super pretty. I've never spun bamboo, but I would be willing to give it a go with this fiber!

Erin said...

Sigh, I love Miki's shop. I actually just ordered some things from her. I really wanted to add Bilbo Baggins and English Toffee to my order, but I had to control myself somewhat!

Kathleen said...

I totally agree with the comments about the addictiveness of Miki's fibers. If I had enough money I would buy out her shop. She is a world-class enabler. Her monster sized batts are amazing and the hand dyed rovings are glorious. Today I am in awe of the Moroccan Sunset!

Pick just one thing? Impossible! The Autumn Harvest is at least in my top 3. It's been a rough week...a little fibery goodness might be just the thing!

So many pretty colors! I wish I could fill my fiber closet with princess party and nemo fun batts, catalina 2 and party girl bfl spinning fiber, renaissance mawata, peony, blue lagoon and neptune bamboo, rainbow brite and twilight shetland, some silver and gold angelina and burple handspun yarn. I have a supply hoarding problem.
