Hilltop Cloud Guinness inspired fiber giveaway!


I love the interpretation Katie of Hilltop Cloud had of our "Brewing up a Storm" theme in Oct. She translated Guinness into fiber, and did an excellent job of it, too! This is a beautifully dyed Superwash BFL/ Raime blend called "Good For You".

 I would like to encourage everyone to visit the Hilltop Cloud shop and treat yourself to some excellent fiber with a focus on British Breeds. Everything is available in a myriad of colors, and her website is a delight to navigate!

We're giving away this "Good For You" fiber! Just visit Hilltop Cloud, find something you love and write about it in the comment section below. We'll count your extra social networking as entries, just let us know you've done it!

Oh, my! I am torn between the Osprey and the Moorhen braids from the Birds Collection. Such beautiful colours, and they're begging to be spun into socks. (Well, into yarn that will become socks. You know what I mean.)

Pinned to my Spinning & Fibre board! http://www.pinterest.com/owldaughter/spinning-fibre/
