Pay it Forward Yarn & Fiber Giveaway

There is only so much storage space in my world and having my Dad's fiber collection come live with me has prompted a much overdue clean out of knitting and spinning fibers. Those that have followed this blog know there are usually some pretty nice treasure in my giveaways. I ask no money, only that you pay it forward by donating something to a cause near and dear to your heart. Time, money, supplies, adopt a dog, foster a cat, put a Thanksgiving box together for a local family in need, volunteer at a shelter, do a ride for Breast Cancer, it doesn't matter as long as you are giving something in thanks for your blessings.

To get one of those wonderful lots, leave a comment and  PLEASE make sure I have a way to contact you via e-mail for an address. If you have a preferred lot let me know, but every one's name will go into a hat and 10 names (for the 10 lots!), will be picked out from said hat one at a time. If your lot is still available, you'll get it, if not, you'll still get one of the lots. Lower 48 shipping only and closing on this is Friday 10/10/14 regardless if there are newer posts or not.

Lot 1: 11 balls of Berroco Ultra Silk and 1 ball of Filura Di Crosa Malva.


 Lot 2: Mora Swedish wool, lace/cobweb weight. 8 skeins, 3 brown, 3 green and 2 silver grey 1035yds per skein.


Lot 3: 3 balls of Rowan 4 ply cotton, 2 balls of FDC Malva, 2 puddles of Nashua Creative Focus Brushed Alpaca, one skein of Araucana Nature Wool and 1 skein of Seacoast Handpaint Panda.


Lot 4: 1 Skein Mountain Colors Weaver's Wool Quarters, 1 skein Araucana Nature Wool, 1 skein Lana Grossa sock yarn, 1 large skein (1350yds) Great Adirondack Silk Noir, 1 Zauberball, 1 large skein (600yds) Great Adirondack 100% Alpaca.

Lot 5: 6 Skeins of Noro Kochoran.


 Lot 6: 5 Skeins of Peace Fleece.

 Lot 7: Silver Cloud Farm American grown wool. This is a local producer here in Ashland. The wool is Romney I believe and much of her shearing goes to Philosopher's Wool Company. Great stuff, good wool for outerwear sweaters. 1 skein Cascade Lamb's Pride.


 Lot 8: 5 Skeins Jamieson's Shetland Double Knitting wool, 1 braid of Eweniquely Ewe fine wool roving 7.8oz.


Lot 9: 2 and 3/4 Braids of Eweniquely Ewe Blue Faced Leicester roving. +- 20 oz.


 Lot 10: 1 1/2 Braids of Eweniquely Ewe  Blue Faced Leicester and a ball of natural Romney.

And just a note about Cindie's wonderful fibers. I have a lot of her beautiful roving. These are colors I know I won't be using for my limited spinning time.

  3. Wow - you must have an awesome stash if you're willing to give any of those up! I'd be interested in Lot 1 or Lot 8. I'm planning to adopt a shelter cat or two to help my aging cat with mouse patrol - seems he's decided that sleeping is way more fun than catching mice.

  5. How fun! Donations in Jack's name will be made tomorrow to our local rescue. Love lot 1, lot 5 and lot 6. Although I know Cindie's roving is beautiful I don't spin anymore, guess I should sell my wheels. Hugs for the teaming masses and especially for Jack ;-)

  10. I love your Pay It Forward idea, and you are so generous! I really like lots 8 and 9. Does all this mean your dad is hanging up his shuttle?

  11. Wow, you certainly do have a wonderful stash! I would love lot 6 or any of them although I am not a great spinner as I need more practice. I have a goal of 12 hats to Halos of Hope (4 to go) and will add to my donation to our local animal shelter.

  12. Oh Theresa, what a generous giveaway! I would love to have any of the knitting yarns, don't have much use for the roving. I would give to Access, as they helped me after my surgery with the loan of equipment. Thanks for the chance!
