Mama Judes Plant Dyed yarn giveaway!

This 180 yard skein of plant dyed goodness is a colorway called "Autumn" by Mama Jude's Plant Dyed Stuff. It's a single ply wool yarn with 15% mohair making it extra warm! I know winter is still hanging on at PF HQ and wearing something toasty made from this sounds really good right about now!

MamaJude's is all ready for Easter! Check out the felted eggs Judy has stocked in her shop! I kind of wish I had thought to order some before we made a dye mess of our dining room table ;).

If you'd like to be entered to win this skein of yarn, please visit MamaJude's today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. We'll count those extra social networking on facebook, twitter, pinterest, ravelry, etc as entries! Just let us know you did it!

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.

The Critter Ranch Llamas in Pajamas Giveaway!

This will be a different post here on the blog than I normally do. If you have followed this blog for long, you know that we have been fans of The Critter Ranch and her work for years. I had this blogpost scheduled to publish tomorrow, but I just received some very sad news.  Last night our friend Sue of The Critter Ranch lost her 2 year old Great Grandson to a horrible tragedy.

 Rather than having you choose something to talk about from her lovely shop, instead I would like to Sue (and Diana of Fiber Fancy- the boy's auntie) to know that there are fiber artists from all over that care. If you would post a small condolence at in the comments section, perhaps when time has allowed some healing to occur, Sue and Diana will be able to read your comments and know our feelings of sympathy towards them. A randomly chosen commenter will receive these adorable Llamas in Pajamas created by Sue of The Critter Ranch for our December box.

Austin was a victim of a very horrible tragedy, and the family is quite unprepared for any funeral expenses. An email to forward paypal donations has been set up by the family: austinjsmith2013 at gmail dot com

Thank you in advance for your kind thoughts for our friends.

Bohoknitterchic Spins Batts giveaway!

So, in my excitement over the gift certificates yesterday, I completely spaced that Brittany also sent in these gorgeous mini batts for her Shop's 4th Birthday! I think this will work out great- we can have a separate winner for these and we get to visit Bohoknitterchic Spins for a second day in a row :) I can hear your fiber budgets cracking under the weight of all the beautiful things she has there!

See, we've always got surprises going on here at the blog- just when you thought I would move on, we're going to head right back to Brittany's shop, Bohoknitterchic Spins! Go take a look again and pick something different than you did last time to write about in the comment section below. You'll be entered to win this lovely batt set, and we'll count all those tweets/facebookupdates/plurks/google+/pins etc as extra entries!
