May Phat Fiber Sampler Box – A Horse of a Different Color

This month’s theme for the Phat Fiber Sampler Box was a little unexpected, and I really didn’t think I was going to participate until one night when I was laughing over posts in the Rubberneckers group on Ravelry.

Like a lightning bolt, I thought of the funny Internet expression, “teal deer,” which references a post where someone has pontificated themselves into oblivion. Respondents are forced to reply with “tl;dr” (too long; didn’t read) or run screaming from the computer. Or both.
“A teal deer, eh?” I thought to myself. “Well, that’s a horse of a different color, all right!” After all, the idiom “a horse of a different color’ usually isn’t talking about horses at all.

So without further ado, here are my brand new Teal Deer stitch markers, handpainted by moi in a gorgeous sparkly teal color so that you can chuckle over the inanities of life while knitting away on your newest project. Enjoy!

Don’t forget, if you purchase anything in my store from May 18 – June 20 you are eligible for the Phat Fiber Superbox Giveaway!

May Phat Fiber Sampler – The Silver Centurion

I’m thrilled to unveil my new superhero-themed stitchmarkers – the Silver Centurion, now available at Exchanging Fire!

The Silver Centurion

The Silver Centurion is an abstract take on Iron Man, with these amazing vintage stitchmarkers from Cold War era Eastern Europe creating a “mask-like” feel with their bright silver lines etched across the lucite beads. I love how they look very “grown-up” but can still feed your inner geekery!

Here I am in featured at the beginning of the Phat Fiber video for this month!

Win Free Stitch Markers from Exchanging Fire!

So during TNNA this January I met Lisa Bogart, who is the author of Knit with Love. She saw me wearing my Mini Mania Scarf and sort of pointed at me and said, “The Scarf! I get to meet The Scarf!” Yes, she had recognized The Scarf from Ravelry, and was thrilled to see it in person. I was just thrilled she knew what the heck it was! I felt a little famous, I must confess. She very kindly signed one of her books for me and then we concocted a plan…a grand plan! And that plan was for me to participate in one of her monthly giveaways on her website.

So I’m very pleased to announce that this month, March, you can enter to win a BRAND NEW set of stitch markers that I have released especially for the occasion! They are called Orange Blossom Special, and are an ode to the fabulous bluegrass folk song of the same name. Funnily enough, they also happen to be the Pantone color of the year, which is Tangerine Tango. Ha! Anyways, I just love oranges, which in ancient times were called  “golden apples” by Europeans because they were so joyfully bright and lush and delicious. There’s some magical about them, and I hope you enjoy their juicy delight as much as I do.

And, not only could you win a these fabulous stitchmarkers, but if you head over to Lisa’s giveaway page you’ll also find a SUPER SPECIAL discount code for 10% off anything in my shop! This only lasts until the end of March, so you’ll want to hop to it!
