Phoenix Yarn Cashmere Laceweight Giveaway!

Phoenix Yarn is formerly Jags Funky Fibers! Jags needed a new look and a new name after her hiatus earlier this year. I think the name suits her new shop beautifully! How appropriate that like a phoenix, she resurrects old sweaters into beautiful yarns!

I have been quite pleased with purchases made from Phoenix Yarn in the past- So pleased, that I have been "saving" this seafoam colored cashmere for quite some time! I have it earmarked for something from "knitted lace of Estonia" it's that wonderful!

We're giving away this fuchsia colored cashmere lace today! Just visit Phoenix Yarn, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below! We'll be drawing for a winner later this week, so please take a moment and facebook and twitter about it for extra entries!

Crochet by KA Butterfly garden batt giveaway!

I may be a little biased (because I loove green!) but I think these art batts from CrochetbyKA this month were downright phenomenal! I would love to see this spun up with the butterflies included in the yarn. My camera didn't capture the beauty of these butterflies and how they go perfectly with the batt!

There are a few things in Kelly's shop that are just so tempting- the unicorn pop batt from last month being one of them!! I could eat it. Seriously.

We're giving away this beautiful batt! Just visit CrochetbyKA today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. Be sure and do an update on twitter and facebook to include this giveaway! We'll count that as an extra entry- just let us know you did it!

Bitsy Knits Lace Yarn Giveaway!

You may recall a yarn I featured in the video- a really interesting nylon-wrapped wool laceweight from Bitsy Knits in "M. Zephyritis" colorway. I am so curious about this yarn! I know nylon gives wool strength, so I could do an intricate lace shawl and do an extreme blocking session and it would hold up to it? So cool! I happen to really love the colors here too.

Can I brag a little? I recently finished one of Bitsy's shawl kits and it turned out really beautifully! Check it out:

We're giving away this 50 gram skein of Bitsy's "Wool Crepe" yarn today! Please visit Bitsy Knits, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be drawing a winner after this weekend (I have a neat giveaway for the weekend I'll be posting tomorrow) so make sure you twitter and facebook about this for extra entries!

Pickin and Spinning Luna Moth Roving Giveaway!

I love this month's theme! I love luna moths! I love that Kim of Pickin and Spinning created this beautiful bamboo and merino roving for a giveaway!

If you're a new spinner, and a little concerned about trying to spin bamboo, but are enchanted by it's gossamer glossiness, fear no more! Try a blend with wool and you will have an easier time spinning it than straight bamboo (which takes a little more practice).

We're giving away this beautiful Luna Moth Roving from Pickin and Spinning today! Just visit the shop, find something you love, and come back here and write about it in the comments section below. Extra points if you let your facebook and twitter friends know about it!

Southern Mystic Zodiac Yarn Giveaway!

Southern Mystic has a beautiful collection of "Zodiac" fibers and yarns. I think it's absolutely wonderful! Pictured above is the "Aries" colorway. I know there are a lot of Aries in our Ravelry group (tons of spring b-days!) And I'm an Aries too!

According to Julie (Southern Mystic) ""Aries" is like a big, well-armed toddler. The most primal and physically powerful of the zodiac, it gets its drive and energy from the planet Mars. Irrepressible, ambitious, outgoing and impulsive, Aries is also the innocent of the zodiac, without the experiences through the ages that have made the other signs more internal and reflective. This can be a positive, as those born under Aries are generally happy, exuberant, optimistic and (perhaps overly) trusting."

We're giving away this gorgeous DK weight yarn (275 yds) today! Just visit Southern Mystic, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week, so please take a moment to Facebook/twitter for extra chances to win!
