As if pretty yarn wasn't enough to seal the deal, Janel is committed to creating excellence- taken from her shop statement: "Since I learned to speak I have been posing questions. How is that done?

Susses Spindehjrne sock yarn giveaway!


You know something? I really love purple. It's probably in my top 3 favorite colors. Growing up, my father hated purple. How someone could hate a color, is a bit beyond me, but he loathed the color purple. I never wore any purple clothes, or had purple bedsheets or anything and I think I'm making up for lost time because it seems like if I'm not buying green yarn, it's purple!  Of course, I think this "Brewing up a Storm" sock yarn from Susses Spindehjrne would fit right snuggly in with my purple yarn collection ;)

If purple isn't your thing, there are lots of other offerings at the Susses Spindehjrne shop! From luxury spinning fiber blends to handspun, do hand painted yarns and even finished items and fiber tools! There is a rather nice Christmas sale going on in her shop right now as well!

If you'd like to be entered to win this sock yarn, please visit Susses Spindehjrne on Etsy today! Find something that you love, and write about it in the comment section below. Link to this on your favorite social networking platform and we will count that as an extra entry!

There is so much yummy fiber going on at the Three Waters Farm Etsy shop! Wouldn't it be lovely to open a package full of fluff right about now? To hold it up to your cheek and plan ways to spin it? I think so!

Luthvarian Fiber Arts batt giveaway!



We had a major cold snap blow through our area last night. Nearly all the leaves of my pretty sugar maple in the yard have fallen, and the reality of winter is settling in. This Luthvarian Fiber Arts batt is named "Paint the Streets" and I feel like it's talking about my street today!

Intrepid Otter sent in this beautiful Merino/Bamboo/Nylon fiber called Elosha (you will remember her character from the new Battlestar Gallactica!) and it's so lovely, and soft! This would be a dream spin for a small project like a hat, mittens, or small shawl.

Northstar Alpacas soft alpaca/wool yarn giveaway!






When Halloween rolls around each year, I get a little chill down my spine thinking not of ghosts and ghoulies, but that there is less than 60 days to complete any holiday gift knitting I want to do! Sometimes I have grand plans of spinning luxurious yarn for projects, but oftentimes I rely on the glorious yarns offered by the Phat Fiber box contributors. Northstar Alpacas has very special farm fresh yarns from animals that are lovingly cared for as family pets. The yarn is incredible to work with as well.

While we're on the subject of gift-giving, Maple has stocked lots of hats and socks and already finished items in her shop to make things easier on you! Maybe you see something there that would look great on you, too :)

If you would like to be entered to win this gorgeous alpaca/wool yarn, please visit Northstar Alpacas today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. We'll gladly count a share on your favorite social networking platform as an entry as well!

Brazen Stitchery Worsted Yarn giveaway!






I don't want to seem exclusive, but a great deal of our followers are mothers with children. I know this week prior to Halloween, there are lots of last minute costume alterations, candy shopping and general preparation for the festivities, and sometimes we can get a little rough around the edges. I think it's important to treat ourselves every once in a while too. Gluten free, fat-free, high in fiber, and looks great on! :)

Brazen stitchery is also a mother-owned business! Sometimes, it's nice to know that when I'm treating myself, it is in-turn helping someone else out. That's the beauty of buying handmade! Check out all of her project bags, and yarn!

Quaere Fibre Sock Yarn Giveaway!




Last weekend we celebrated my son's birthday by visiting the City Museum in St. Louis, MO. If you've been there, you know they have all kinds of cool things to climb on, and even a 10 story slide! Long story short, I fell and injured my tailbone. Thankfully, I have been able to spend most of this week recovering on cushions with some knitting. It's incidents like this that make me think that hording yarn is a good idea! I can't think of a better way to recuperate from almost anything than to get clicking with some yummy yarn. It's no secret that Quaere Fibre is a most excellent place to stock up!

This moody colored yarn is called "Belaying" and it's aproximately 490 yards of SW Merino squishyness!

Northstar Alpacas Alpaca yarn giveaway!






There is something that stirs inside of me when I wake up in the morning in Autumn, and I open the door to a clear crisp morning and everything is touched with frost. Something about being able to go back into a snug, warm, little house and pick up some knitting just makes everything right with the world. It's especially perfect when I'm using deliciously soft yarn, such as this alpaca yarn from Northstar Alpacas!

Maple of Northstar Alpacas knits a lot too! She offers her beautiful handknits in her shop, and I think this makes gifting someone the gift of alpaca fiber even more simple! The hats with the horses on them! Oh my! Love!

Hilltop Cloud blended fiber giveaway!



I am always so impressed with the samples that come in from Hilltop Cloud! The quality of Katie's fiber is top notch. This particular fiber is so lovely, because it's called "Robin" and it really makes me think feathery bird!

This giveaway fiber is a beautiful combed BFL, Merino, Manx and Yak! It's sooo nice! Looks like there are several more of this fiber blend in the Hilltop Cloud shop! I think one of the best things about Hilltop Cloud is the selection of rare British Sheep breed fiber. It's perfect for self study, as you can order several from one supplier- in the U.K.- who has in some cases, a repertoire with the farms where the fiber was raised.

I can't think of something more luxurious and gorgeous to spin as the weather turns cooler than some beautifully painted merino/tussah silk from Three Waters Farm!

I am not usually one to get too worked up when Monday rolls around. I like working, and I like getting up early, but I worked through the weekend and had fitful, interrupted sleep last night- this Monday morning has a definite dreary flavor! I am going to make some time this afternoon to spend knitting with some yummy yarn to get me through. I wish it was this beautiful Merino/Silk fingering from Wandering Wool!

Or anything from Wandering Wool! Have you stopped by the etsy shop recently? I feel all fluttery inside when looking at all the rich colors. It makes me inspired to start knitting some fall accessories! How about you? Do you see something that gets you excited in the Wandering Wool shop?

Post about it below in the comment section, and we will draw from comments the winner of this lovely yarn. Be sure and share it with your favorite social networking- pinterest, facebook,twitter,plurk, google+ etc and we will count that as an extra entry!

Quaere Fiber Sock Yarn Giveaway!


It's Christmas in July for one more day, anyway :). Quaere Fibre sent in this bright, bold sock yarn in "Christmas Baubles" for a giveaway, and it's been so dark and dreary here for a few days, I felt I needed to post some color therapy for everyone. This particular yarn is self-striping, which makes this even more happier in my book.

Quaere Fibre is a place to go when you've got a sock yarn jones. All the fall look-books and collections are rolling out and I think it's time everyone stock up on their yarn for fall stitching! I am really fond of the "Lemon Grass" yarn Janel has. How about you?

Visit Quaere Fibre today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below and we'll enter you to win this yarn! Be sure and share on your favorite social media networks for extra entries- just let us know where you did it.

Quaere Fibre Chocolate Kisses Sock Yarn giveaway!





So, I mentioned that hugging handspun yarn could make your day yesterday. I think hoarding indie dyed sock yarn comes in a close second to that. Notice that you need not know how to use either yarn for it to imbue delight. Quaere Fibre is full of delightful yarn to enjoy!

This giveaway yarn is called "Chocolate Kisses" but you can see, it's much more on the kisses side, than the chocolate. I love it! Well, there isn't much in the entire Quaere Fibre shop that I don't love!

With Hilltop Cloud there is so much to choose from, too! All of the products seem to have  cohesive earthy tones, and natural textures to them. I can see how most everything could probably be used together in a project. This is one of the beautiful things about purchasing materials from a particular artist- their sensibilities tend to shine through in their work- and I consider this a very good thing!
