Tails and Snouts Handspun giveaway!






I'm so delighted to be featuring the cutest shop ever today on the blog! Tails&Snouts! I think I am going to file this under "cuteness" instead of "yarn and fiber supplies" in my bookmarks. I don't know how people can knit toys and sell them- I would not be able to part with them!

Elizabeth did something really sweet, and she spun this gorgeous, colorful yarn from her Dec/Jan contributor boxes and is giving it away here to one of you! All you need do to enter, is visit Tails&Snouts and write in the comments section what you would like to own of the offerings there.

Ocean Cliff worsted is *such* a gorgeous colorway!

Oh, I LOVE the Caribbean Waters BFL/Silk fiber, and the bunny cubes too! :)

The deer-rabbit cross creature is so cute! I have never seen anything like it, and I just love it!

I have a thing for hedgehogs, but that handspun "murder of crows #161" is amazing, too!

I like Goldfish Tank, the adorable owl, and the beautiful lime green cocoons. Lime green is my craft room color.

I love all the colorful silk cocoons!

Dovile said...

I love the colors of Handpainted Fingering Weight Superwash Merino Nylon Sock Yarn- Aphrodite.

camphillpeaches said...

I love the colors in Chameleon!!

Sheila said...

Her toys are adorable! But I have the opposite problem from you - I love knitting cute little things, but have no idea what to do with them when I'm finished. I may need to look into selling them on etsy...

My favorite thing in her shop, tho, isn't a toy. It's the merino silk fingering weight yarn in the Tropical Seas colorway. She really captured the feel of a tropical sea and I would so like to be somewhere tropical.

Pinned and tweeted too.

Karen said...

Wow! So many nice things! It is very hard to choose a favorite. In handpainted yarn I like Handpainted Worsted Weight Superwash Merino Yarn- Dove. In roving and fiber, I like Handpainted Superwash Merino Roving- Enchantress.

The frog! (or the April tussah silk roving)---I wish that either would make their way to my easter basket!

Handpainted Fingering Weight Superwash Merino Nylon Sock Yarn- Merry-Go-Round 462 yards

This yarn is a lovely rainbow of colours!

Lots of lovely things here! I like the rainbow silk cocoons too!

Jessica Jo said...

I think the real question is what would I not want to own from that shop? Bumblebee roving is standing out to me as a bumblebee was my first tattoo. Very close to me.

Saus said...

You have amazing silk cocoons. I love the bunny toys and the frog prince yarn is beautiful.

i would love ocean cliff in a BFL fiber

Donna Molles said...

The HEDGEHOG!!! Love him and the two little lambs. :)

The hand painted Merino Silk Sock -Topical

Aimeefae said...

What I don't want from her shop might be a shorter list... But I finally settled on a favorite and that is the hand spun/hand dyed bubblegum pink bamboo. Living in Texas, I lean toward plant fibers over animal fibers due to the climate. I make exceptions all the time, but I always look at cotton, linen and bamboo first.

I like the colors and cuteness of the bunny cube toy. :)

I absolutely love the Olive Green Handknit Frog Toy (my husband's a frog collector, real and non-real), but if I had to choose a yarn, it would definitely be the Handpainted Fingering Weight Superwash Merino Nylon Sock Yarn in Merry-Go-Round, which would make an awesome shawl!

Carmen Nuland said...

I love the toys! Especially the Handknit Sky Blue Itty Bitty Bunny Cat Toy. I'd get it for myself (we don't have a cat :)

I am such a fan of Tails & Snouts! One fiber braid that I've had my eye on for a while is "Throne" BFL/Tussah Silk.

The Teeswater locks in the Black Lilac colorway actually look like a bunch of lavender. Would be interesting spun up in lace weight for a shawl.
