Fibre Appreciation Thursday - Yarn Give away


Morning :D
I am going to kick start this week’s FAT with a Yarn Give away!
This is your chance to win a Skein, of super washed BFL! - Winner will be picked at random!

One of my Favourite colours is teal, I use it a lot in my yarns, and this particular one is a darker shade of Greeny / blue..like the sea that surrounds us.
The Prize
Unfortunately the camera never captures “teal” in its true colour, so you just have to take my word for it lol.
 Ok so on to the serious bit, this give away is open for worldwide entries, all I asked is that you’re a follower of my blog and/or Facebook, Instagram  - This is important to me because I want one of my lovely readers to win! And I think it also makes it fairer for you guys!!
To enter just leave a comment below, and let me know where or how you’re following my blog, esp if I can’t visually find you on my reader/follow list to the right of my blog.
Winner will be announced in next Thursday’s post. {26th of July 2012}
Now on to some yummy Fibre pictures!
This week I have been playing with Block Black, for my Witches brew range which has resulted in quite a few customs, in the same colours.
Dark Pumpkin : Orange, Blood Red and Black

Devils Horn : Black and Blood Ref
I love pairing black with rich vibrant tones! The orange and blood red in the skeins above are a perfect example of how stunning these combinations can be.
Blood Moon : Red, Black and Grey
I have also been trying it out on fibre, and really pleased with how my Blood moon turned out!..{now if only I could spin properly!!}
All this talk about colour has been thought provoking!! –Now  I am huge lover of vibrant colours, as some of you know very well lol, and friend mention the other week, that I am “known” for my girly colours, which surprised me a little (not in a bad way )..i guess I have never sat back and really thought about it, because I just dye and play with colours that I love.
 

So just out of interest what do you guys associate my yarn with? Do you think my colours tend to be gender specific?  - I guess every fibre artist has their own signature, just trying to figure out what mine is lol
Thats it from me to day, look forward to seeing your links!{ if your joining us for the first time and not sure how it works read this post :)


Have an awesome fibre filled Thursday xx

To take part all you have to do, is leave your link with MR Linky, making sure it’s your relevant blog post link and not actual blog address! And leave a link on your blog post back to Fibre Appreciation that way hopefully readers can come find Mr Linky and join in!Your fibre can be something you brought or dyed and/or spun recently or something you brought years ago!!! - The "When" Really doesn't matter!Please visit and comment on as many blogs taking part, after all that’s the aim of the meme!! :D

  1. I'm following you on here and on Facebook :-) I'll be getting instagram as soon as I get hang of it as it sounds like a great fun!

    I think there is something very true about your colours being "girly" and very fairytale-ish, as I rarely see such beautiful combinations of sweet colours like purples, pinks and blues/greeens with a bit of sparkle :-)
    Having said that, I absolutely love the Blood Moon!!

    I don't know if I'd say girly, but maybe dreamy is more your style. :)

  8. Hi Danielle, Thanks for the scrummy yarn give away (fingers & toes crossed)!

    I follow you via blog, IG & FB.

    I especially love your rainbows and fantasy ranges. The Unicorn & Mermaid colour-ways are truly stunning, and as I like mythical creatures, I'm a big fan :)

    When I think of you though, I think 'Rainbow Lady.' Your colour work is so joyful.

    The recent work is just as gorgeous though. Blood moon is very seductive. It reminds me of the Twilight saga.

    Anyway, I've joined in the meme again this week. Not especially happy with the results of my tropical handspun yarn, but you win some, you lose some, lol.

  16. I follow you on instagram and the blog. I love that teal yarn and I hope I win. I think you have yarns for either gender but I'd be hard pressed to get my husband to wear something knit from your rainbow colorways. I love how they look when they're k.it up, though.

  19. I follow you on here and Facebook (where I originally found you). I always look forward to your new fantasy yarns. I don't think that your yarns are gender specific- they are too vibrant for the stereotypical genders. I would classify your style as mystical or fantasy based. You do have the dream quality with the flow of color changes, but your colors aren't pale and that's what I love about them!

  34. I also love teal! I started following you on Blogger, then switched to Google Reader. The two seemed to be linked because all the blogs I follow were transferred to Google without any work by me. I'm not sure if you can see me as a follower or not.
