Giving it Away!

I'm the feature artist today on the Phat Fiber Blog. Phat Fiber is a sampler box of very cool stuff from independent fiber artists.  When you purchase a box you can sample lots of different hand painted yarns, hand-dyed roving, sparkly batts, beautiful stitch markers and lots more.  Artists who contribute to the box frequently give away a full-size skein of yarn, wheel of roving, or in this case, a bag of mohair locks. I've been a contributing artist for about a year, every other month or so.  I'd do it every month, but that would give me about six more deadlines than I need. 

If you want to win a full-size 3-ounce bag of mohair locks in the Fire colorway, you just have to head on over to Smoky Mountain Fibers; then share what you like on Phat Fiber's blog.  The picture you see here represents the samples I sent into the March box - both roving and mohair locks dyed in my 'Fire' colorway.  No purchase is required, but it will only be up for a day or 2.  But things change, so come back later.  It just won't be me!.

I love to dye this colorway - even though they are seldom exactly the same and reds are notoriously hard to photograph.  Last weekend I dyed a batch of roving that came out too pale, but still beautiful.   I love to spin this combo, so if I have to keep it, I don't mind. So, Get fiery!
