Knit By Design Yarn giveaway!

We've got a lovely worsted weight yarn giveaway today from Knit By Design! This is making me pine for sweater weather's arrival! I'd love a whole sweater out of this stuff- 50/50 Merino/Tencel. Just as yummy as the worther's original candies she's included with this skein! :)

Knit By Design has really become synonymous with luxury in my mind. Every sample Shea has sent in, has been absolutely divine. The colorways she offers makes it easy to work it in the wardrobe you have.

Fiber Fancy Ice Cream inspired Fiber giveaway!

Fudge Ripple, Caramel swirl and French Vanilla. Do those flavors elicit a visceral response from you? I kind of feel the same way when someone says "Alpca, Silk and Cormo". It just feels good! Diana from Fiber Fancy is smart like that. She knows you all love her stuff as much as ice cream. At least you should. :)

Fiber Fancy usually has a really fun spin a long going on and pages and pages of delicious yarn and fiber. Most of it is carefully hand dyed in small batches.

We are giving away a trio of Fiber Fancy fiber- Fudge Ripple is 2/3 alpaca and 1/3 corriedale, Caramel Swirl is 2/3 Alpaca and 1/3 Romney, and French Vanilla is 2/3 Finn and 1/3 Alpaca. Sounds like something I would want to dig into at midnight! :) To enter, please visit Fiber Fancy today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count extra facebook, plurk, pinteres, twitter updates about this as entries! Let us know you did it.

Wandering Wool Sock Yarn Giveaway!

I think this is the first time I've featured Wandering Wool's "High Peaks" sock yarn. It's so very scrummy people!  80/10/10 Superwash merino/cashmere/nylon and it's quite floofy and more on the DK side than fingering. 

If it's Wandering Wool, you know Joelle has taken the utmost care in dyeing a saturated, and consistent yarn. This particular colorway is aptly named "Mango" as it is a luscious yellow with sections of sweet coral reds and tart dark limes.

If you'd like to enter this giveaway, please visit Wandering Wool today, find something that you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those extra twitter, facebook, pinterest, plurk, blog updates about this as extra entries!

Bitsy Knits Artisan Sock giveaway!

Bitsy Knits should be one of those shops you have bookmarked on your favorite yarn stores folder on your browser. Bitsy has a consistency with her products that I find beautiful. She puts a lot of time  and thought into sourcing her materials, and the final results show.

I think most people are familiar with Bisty on the show circuit- as she keeps quite busy doing larger fiber events through the year. It's really comforting to know that you can get more of that special fiber you saw at an event with just a few clicks of the mouse. Steal some time away from the day, and drop in at Bisty Knits and see what's new!

We're giving this gorgeous plum colored sock yarn away today! Artisan sock has a wonderfully subtle thick-and-thin quality that adds interest to your knitting. Please visit Bitsy Knits, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count those comments that let us know you've spread the word via pinterest, facebook, twitter, ravelry as extra entries as well!

LadyBug Fiber Company Sock Yarn giveaway!

Lemon, Raspberry and Peach! What I wouldn't do for some socks made from this yarn! Ladybug Fiber Co.'s superwash mcn yarn is so super soft! It's got that little bit of cashmere in there for extra yumminess!

This is one of her many self-striping yarns. I think it would be wonderful to use this in a colorwork piece- you have the look of having more colors, but would only have to be dealing with one yarn! Check out all the other self-striping yarn Ladybug Fiber has!

Happy 1st of August! When you want something, our phatties are quick to supply! Case in point: Knits in Class is a Greener Shades dye dealer! No heavy metals in this dye- and the colors are so vibrant and amazing!

I love Kate's shop- I think her July samples were really out of this world! They really did remind me of those vintage bathing suits. I've always secretly wanted one! Knits In Class yarn would be much easier to wear though, I'm sure ;)
