Intrepid Otter Elosha Fiber Giveaway!


Trick or Treating is over, and now the push to complete my handmade holiday gifts is really underway! I feel really lucky that at least some of my family very much appreciates handmade gifts and it's such a joy to craft and meditate on how much I love someone while creating something beautiful.

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.

To enter to win this beautiful braid, please visit Intrepid Otter today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. Extra entries awarded for sharing this on your favorite social network!

I like "Lavender Earl Grey ~ fluffy Superwash Merino fiber braid"

Chris said...

"Malachite" really catches the color of the stone!

As a newcomer to the rolag craze - I can't believe I didn't try them sooner! That said, the Dewy Bloom is a beautiful colorway, as well as being in my new fave fiber format

I adore "lazy sunday" but that may be because I already own a braid of it. (:

The "burnished gunmetal" batts are *gorgeous* as well.

So much yumminess! (Is that a word?) I like Malachite ~ High twist superwash wool sock yarn and Yoshi's Roses ~ Corriedale cross spinning fiber braid.

Not sure how that lovely purple-lavender relates to walking dead but it looks fabulous.

"Darting Damselfly" caught my eye right away! But I also like "You Live With Your Mother, Like a Serial Killer?"

ingrid said...

I am so in love with the Phat Fiber September selection "Lion's Head Nebula" (wasn't in-the-know about this site back then). WANT! Though I'm normally not a multicolor gal, I don't have a clue what I would knit. "You Live With Your Mother, Like a Serial Killer?" is my pick for fiber, those soft blues. Now to convince my family to get me a gift certificate for Christmas...

I really love the snazzy tangerine, such a lovely color and a fun name
