Northstar Alpacas Alpaca yarn giveaway!

There is something that stirs inside of me when I wake up in the morning in Autumn, and I open the door to a clear crisp morning and everything is touched with frost. Something about being able to go back into a snug, warm, little house and pick up some knitting just makes everything right with the world. It's especially perfect when I'm using deliciously soft yarn, such as this alpaca yarn from Northstar Alpacas!

Maple of Northstar Alpacas knits a lot too! She offers her beautiful handknits in her shop, and I think this makes gifting someone the gift of alpaca fiber even more simple! The hats with the horses on them! Oh my! Love!

If you would like to win this natural skein of super soft alpaca yarn from Northstar Alpacas, please visit her shop, find something you would like to own, and write about it in the comment section below. Extra entries awarded to those who use social platforms like pinterest, facebook, ravelry, google+, twitter etc to share!

Hilltop Cloud blended fiber giveaway!

I am always so impressed with the samples that come in from Hilltop Cloud! The quality of Katie's fiber is top notch. This particular fiber is so lovely, because it's called "Robin" and it really makes me think feathery bird!

This giveaway fiber is a beautiful combed BFL, Merino, Manx and Yak! It's sooo nice! Looks like there are several more of this fiber blend in the Hilltop Cloud shop! I think one of the best things about Hilltop Cloud is the selection of rare British Sheep breed fiber. It's perfect for self study, as you can order several from one supplier- in the U.K.- who has in some cases, a repertoire with the farms where the fiber was raised.

If you would like to be entered to win this pretty fiber, please visit Hilltop Cloud today, and choose an item listed in the shop to comment about here on this post.  We'll award extra entries to those who share on other social networking platforms!

I didn't feature these Winemakerssister sets on the August preview video, and instead I would like to make up for it and do a special giveaway here for them. I think they are beautiful, and I am especially enamored of the honey bee/ carnelian stitch markers!

Winemakerssister is an emporium of cuteness. There are too many things I would love to own, it's nearly overwhelming to think about! LOL Right now, I covet the owl stitch markers, and the Earl Grey, Hot mug! What do you love?

To be entered to win these sets, please take a moment and visit Winemakerssister today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below.

Three Waters Farm Lilac Road Merino/Tussah Giveaway!

It's September! I'm so excited for Autumn. It is a favorite time of year for me. I've made a giant coffee cake and some banana bread and it's filled my home with wonderful baking smells. Of course, it's still stifling hot outside! The time of warm cups of tea snuggled down under a blanket pouring over knitting books is nigh! Time to really churn out some yummy handspun to make into must-have fall essentials like hats and scarves!

I can't think of something more luxurious and gorgeous to spin as the weather turns cooler than some beautifully painted merino/tussah silk from Three Waters Farm! This particular braid is called "Lilac Road" but the colors really remind me of how nature is looking now- bright blue skies with hints of turning leaves here and there :)

If you would like to enter to win this beautiful fiber from Three Waters Farm, please visit their Etsy shop today, find something you love, and write about it in the comment section below. We'll count your social networking on platforms like pinterest, facebook, twitter, google+ etc as extra entries- please let us know where you've shared!
