Ooooh, so many pretty things!!!!! I would love to win this spindle.

As for my favorites, I love Top Drop Spindle with Metal Red detal, 1.7 oz / 47 g (it was sold, but I still love it!).

For yarn I like Hand Painted Superwash BFL Silk Lace Yarn, 875 yards/ 100 grams in Burgundy.

In roving, I like Merino Wool and Bamboo/Rayon Roving, 4 oz, Fountain Penny. I also like Bamboo/Rayon Roving, 4 oz Venetian Nights.

I prefer roving, but in the batts, I really like the blue and purple Merino Wool Batt, 3 oz.

See what I mean? Too many pretty things!!!! LOL

I didn't know about this shop. Love everything -- especially the batts -- so many pretty color combinations.

I LOVE the drop spindle called Snowflakes! It reminds me of my favorite time of year -- Winter -- not this dreaded humid and muggy summer. Blegh!

smilely said...

This is the first I have seen these spindles, I love them, when I come off of my spindle diet, one is going to have to come live with me, I really liked the one with the pink accents on the whorl.

Kris C said...

I love the Aquarius batts and the Sea batts too! And, of course, the spindles. All of them LOL.

Julia Goolia said...

Top Drop Spindle in Flower Fatal, that's the one. I love the black vine design.

Sheri Karobonik said...

I like the Top Drop Spindle in Flower Fatal, 0.95 oz / 27 g

Kathryn said...

Lovely items in this shop! Love the spindle shown and this batt Merino Wool Batt in "Suit Urself", 3 oz.

Lis said...

I love the spindles in the Etsy shop with the enamel dots on the outer rim! Such a clever design and must look amazing while it's spinning!

I also wonder if the dots are heavy enough to provide some weight and balance to the spindle? It seems a clever design that way also!

cs said...

Oh, I love so many of the spindles but the drop spindle with silver speckled glass is gorgeous!

Jessica Jo said...

https://www.etsy.com/listing/124573468/merino-wool-batt-3-oz?ref=shop_home_active I like that one

Kitsune said...

I love all the spindles! My favorite batt is the Catwoman 2! I would love to win a new spindle!

Jak said...

I don't think there's one thing they have that I don't love, but if I had to choose it'd be the drop spindle with grey enamel dots. It reminds me of outer space for some reason.

Zombie Queen said...

I love the Drop Spindle with Green and Blue Stone. Gorgeous!wqualim11484

Carmen N said...

I need a drop spindle as I want to learn to spin and already have the roving. In addition to their great spindles, I like the Bubbling fountain yarn

Asyasky (on Ravelry) said...

The ones with the space age enamel dots look like they'd be gorgeous spinning! Really though, the steampunk-y drop spindle with dark pink stone is my favorite. :)

Boston Knitter said...

How gorgeous! I only have one drop spindle that works well for me--the second one I own is too lightweight for my current skill level--and I should expand my collection.

I can't pick just one thing to love in their Etsy shop! The colors are amazing, the drop spindles are truly works of art, and the yarn just looks incredible. I'm running out of positive adjectives and I don't want to get repetitive, but if I can't get my hands on some of their roving soon, I'll have to take up lace knitting and buy their yarns!

Emma Nicholson said...

Awwwww- why did you share the link to this site? Haven't been game to show my husband yet - but feeling like a moth gazing into the light of "so many pretty things". I'm in serious trouble here, hoping I can remember where I've hidden the credit card. Not a blue fan normally but I adore the "Wool and Bamboo Batt in " Aquarius", 3 oz" batt....

Mi@ said...

The spindles are gorgeous, but the batts also :) I like the Merino Wool Batt, 3 oz in colourway 'Pop of Peach'.

Linda said...

I love the Hand-painted Superwash Merino Lace Yarn, 875 yards/ 100 grams. It's gorgeous and I bet it wold be awesome to knit with.

Thanks for the chance to win the spindle. What a work of art!

They have so many amazing things... but I think my favorite initially was the spindle with starfish... but then I changed my mind and fell in love with the spindle with the blue enamel dots... gorgeous :)

Mara / moonsister said...

I totally love the gear design. So Steampunky!

Saus said...

I love your roving turkish tobacco, great earth tones. I also love ALL of your spindles, they are gorgeous!

The Butter cup batt is just lovely, very summer and cheerful. The sprocket spindles with the raised colored dots are also really catching my eye. :)

I really like spindles with stones and the blue turquoise one is lovely!

Perrin said...

Alexis said...

I want all those spindles! Goodness, they are gorgeous! But I think the first thing to buy is the wool/bamboo blend in Aquarius -- yum!

I think the Drop Spindle with Blue and Gold Speckled Glass is my favorite! I love the artistic/industrial look of her spindles.

I just stumped my toes, so fiber-wise Bruise Day 1 comes naturally.
But honestly - the new spindle designs! The Templar cross one. Yes, that one.

Bruise Day batt is very fun colorway

Amiee said...

I am totally in love with the Enamel Dot drop spindles (especially the blue!!). I go crazy over anything with stripes, polka dots, basically any kind of pattern...

The Ferret said...

The enamel dot spindles stole my heart. Now If I can get a bathing suit to match i'll be the best accessorized at the beach XD Though the gear spindles are stunning too.

sgbooth88 said...

im normally not a batt person, but her batts are just beautiful and look so smooth and soft! I tried finding a favorite spindle, but I just couldnt. Theyre all great

Lisa Bennett said...

What is there not to like? Love all the spindles and her fiber is to die for!!!!

Michele said...

I would LOVE to win, but even if I don't I HAD to say how fantastic the 3 new styles are!! The sand-Dollar design reminds me of the old Penn. Dutch Hex signs! I would love to see one in motion!! YOUTUBE!!!

Deborah Moyer said...

The Top Drop Spindle with Medium Blue Circle 1oz., in the Etsy shop really needs to be mine.
In case my love of blue and white doesn't shine through here, I love the Superwash Merino Roving Blue Tortoise.
In Batts I love the Superwash Wool and Bamboo Neptune's Baby.
In yarn, I would adore Hand Painted Superwash BFL Silk Lace Yarn.
Do I really have to choose?

Joyce Ann Martin said...

I have one of Dawn's spindles -- a beautiful red glass and bronze-like metal detail -- and it is delightful.

I'm very excited about the new 2013 cutout designs, particularly the Hurricane shape.

Kristen said...

I like the drop spindle with the green stone on it!

camphillpeaches said...

The "Merino Wool Spinning Batt, 3 oz in "Lovers Spat" Limited Series" is really eye-catching.

Evie said...

Honestly I've been lusting after a similar spindle to the give away at my LYS. I love the cogs, feels steampunky to me and I keep meaning to get around to learning to spin.

It is great to see such unique spindles. Love them! And there were several really gorgeous batts that caught my eye!

Cityslingers said...

I love that her spindles are designed to mimic a spinning wheel and yet are still so feminine, like this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/98385208/lace-drop-spindle-in-flowers-in-the-sun?ref=shop_home_active
