Welcome back to the Fiber Festival Friday where I share the fun of the NH Sheep and Wool Festival with folks all over the all over. I'm enjoying this so much, I think I'm going to do it every year.
Anyway, on to the winners.
For the faded blues Mocha's Fiber Designs, we have GailGodwin who said:
My favorite color is the copper penny. But would love any of the colors that you have. I can't beleive all of the beautiful yarn.
For the Lilipad colorway, we have FelicityS who said:
I know EXACTLY what you mean about the lilypad colorway!! I love blue/green combinations with a passion but all the colors in nature are wonderful. Thank you for the opportunity to win something so lovely.
Now, for the Tanis Fiber Arts Skein in Mallard, we have Mujercita who said:
My favorite color family is definitely blues- there is no contest there! I love a nice pretty blue! Throw in some purple or green with it, and I'm thrilled (that Arauncania skein you have up there? I have that colorway in my stash!) The Tannis fiber arts skein is BEAUTIFUL!
For the Araucania blues and purples, we have LynnIL from the previous post who said they love Sanguine Gryffon as their favorite independent dyer.
And for the Copper Penny we have GreyOwl who said:
Blues, blues, and more blues! My favorite and a color that looks good on everyone! But I have to say that the copper penny would look lovely on my oldest daughter
Now on to this week's giveaway!
This week, one of each of these beauties:
These are from the ball and skein booth, and I had a REALLY hard time choosing. Never mind getting in the booth itself... these folks have been very popular every time I've gone.
The top one is a fingering weight MCN blend in colorway Cinder. It's a gorgeous combination of greys, and in a fingering weight with a nice tight twist to it. It should wear well.
The bottom one is what appears to be roughly 600 yards of heavy lace weight. The yarn is not on their site, it's named Nerissa and it's in colorway orchid. This is a 60% seacell, 40% silk combination. I LOVE knitting with seacell/silk. I knit it every chance I get, and every person I've given an object made out of this blend falls in love with it too. I wish more dyers offered it!
Also, there are these from Owl Brook Alpacas Farm
And finally, for fun, I'm putting the names of the folks who haven't won yet back in the hat to get one of these three beauties each from independent dyers:
