SHE Team Celebrates the Holidays Giveaway - Day 20 & 21

We have some incredible talent in this team. Some very generous items have been offered for you to try and win during the next few weeks. There is no ending date given because we want to keep the items coming as long as possible. Be sure to check back to see what the new items are. There will be TWO ITEMS every two days, for as long as possible. The last day of the giveaway will be announced with the last items.

Here are the new items.

From Huggybear Knits

I dye natural fibers. Each coloration is a unique blend. No two skeins of yarn or rovings will be exactly alike. Such is the nature of hand dyeing :) It it an amazing and unexpected process of beautiful color.

Your gift from me is any 100gram/4ounce skein of yarn or roving listed in my shop.

From Chimera

Needle felted Hedgehog and Mushroom:

This little hedgie is made entirely of wool, needle felted by hand. She comes with a felted mushroom to climb or rest on.

In Chimera's shop, I LOVED the felted soap. What a beautiful item! Of course, I loved the hedgie too especially since I have a live little guy named Toutles. :)

LaDonna said...

In Huggyber Knits shop I really enjoyed seeing all of the beautiful colors. What a great job!!

Huggybearknits, I like the yellow rose yarn.

Rosemary said...

Huggybearknits, I think that all of your died fibers are gorgeous. I love the natural varigations in the dye color of your yarns. I'm hoping that one day in the coming new year, that I will actually get to learn to do something with fibers!


Rosemary said...

Chimera, I think your needle felted creations are so unique. I had actually run up on your things in some etsy searches and they peeked my curiosity about needle felting. I love the little hedgehog!

Laurel said...

Chimera, I love your felted alien playset - how totally creative!


EllemarDesigns said...

Huggybear Knits, your yars look so soft and inviting. The "Bachelor Buttons" skein is my favorite - it's a lovely color.


Peg said...

Huggybear Knits I love your store! Your yarns are all so yummy looking. I'd love to knit anything with any of it!

Huggybear Knits, I love all your roving, but especially the berries and cream! It's great how often your shop is updated, and what a wide variety of colors you can dye -- I haven't seen one yet that I wouldn't love!

Huggybear Knits, My favorite has to be the Bachelor's Button/Cornflower skein! ANYTHING cornflower colored gets my vote. :) But I must say, that a very close second would be the pumkin patch looks like SO much fun! :) I've been really into orange lately...weird, I know.


Anonymous said...

Chimera, my favorite roving of yours is definately the seascape...I love those colors together! But I really like your felted aliens too... :)


Laurel said...

Huggybearknits, I LOVE the bright GREEN yarns you've dyed! Especially Spring Green and Emerald beautiful!

Rachel said...

Huggybearknits: I love the Juniper sock yarn. Great color and so talented to be able to dye your yarn. I wish I could.

Anonymous said...

Huggybearknits, I just love your hand dyed skeins. The colors are so vibrant and pretty. My favorite is the Emerald Twist I could totally see some awesome fingerless mitts coming out of that!

Rachel said...

Chimera: A needle felted campfire! My girls would flip for this to be able to play with when they play Barbie's. How cute! or my shop

Linda F. said...

Huggybear's shop: so hard to choose from all the beautiful yarn! But I think my favorite is the Briar Rose! What a lovely shawl that would make!

Patti Shreiner said...

Huggybear Knits is one of my favorite Etsy shops. While I already have one of your gorgeous merino tops (in Lichen), the blue Bachelor Buttons merino sock yarn is really calling to me. Love the colors you blend in both the yarn and roving.

And Chimera – The Nightmare roving looks more like a dream to spin!

Linda F. said...

Chimera, in your shop I think the Poinsetta Fairy is adorable!

demmi said...

Huggybear knits i love the color of the Buttercup yarn

KimO said...

Blessings, Kim Orosco

aelscha said...

Huggybear Knits, I adore all your semi-solid colorways, but I am head-over-heels for your Bachelor Buttons skein!

shopannies said...

huggybear knits, what terrific array of colors that are available. I love them they are all pretty

shopannies said...

chimera, once again the colors the painted acrylics but i love the vibrant colors

Beeb said...

Hi, HuggyBear knits!

I love the beautiful colors of your yarn! I'm torn between the "Watercolors" yarn and the "Blue Green Swirl" yarn. They are both beautiful! I have a friend who just loves to knit, and it always buying new yarns. I think the "Blue Green Swirl" would probably have to be my pick if I were the lucky winner, because it's so unusual! It would be a wonderful present for her. Thank you for the chance!!

Chimera, Chimera, the note cards are so divine. If money grew on trees, those would be mine.

Not to mention those play scapes and some yarn and your rovings!

I adore Huggybearknits yarns! I especially like her blue/violet colorways - Watercolors is by far my favorite - but wisteria and bachelors button come in close behind!

Digital Misfit said...

Both shops are fabulous!

I love Chimera's needle felted aliens, especially Norman (hes such an adorable little pest!).
