I am a particular fan of the yarn bowls and dyed roving on the Knit Witch's site, though the yarns are also extremely scrumptious!

StephCat said...

The portland rain colorway is really pretty, and their mugs are very nice.

Knitnut,Karen said...

Now, I'm going to go post about it on my blog!

mamakin said...

Alrighty then Darcy, you are always stretching my abilities in so many ways. I love it. I also love this giveaway. OMG that's some beautiful gifts! The Knit Witch Shop is fabulous & I fell in love with two of her yarn bowls - I've always wanted one and now I found two I have to have. One is #652 which has salmons and pinks, the other is #572 which has a lovely blue at the top and then glides to a soft pink on the bottom. Heaven. I also love the 100% Alpaca Cafe Au Lait fingering wt & a sock yarn called Waters of the Willamette which WILL BE MINE mwahaha. I was surprised to find that the Knit Witch carries lotions -nice- especially lavender which I like because I've found the scent helps me get rid of headaches.
Shopping at the Knit Witch was the easy part of my day. Your challenges were a bit tough for computer challenged me, BUT, after an hour and 10 mins (yes, I kept track cuz I can only be up for so long at a time since the surgery & I really wanted to do this) I HAVE YOUR BUTTON ON MY BLOG woohoo! I already follow you, very closely hehe, I've blogged & made every attempt to figure out how to do the link thing-go take a peek. I've subscribed to her newsletter & will PM you the email addy, I've twittered & plurked & think I've got all my bases covered. I must be desperate for the Knit Witch giveaway...oh yea, I am. lol

teabird said...

Oh, I love that site! I would say that my favorite items right now would be the fishy yarn bowl, the artemnis dk (gorgeous green), and the lavender lotion potion.

I signed up for the newsletter using teabird 17 AT yahoo dot com - and I follow your blog!

All the colorways for the zodiac are exquisite. I especially like the Pisces colorway. The yarn bowl, which I have never seen before, is quite unique.

This somehow didn't post before...but..DARCY,GO TO MY SITE & HIT YOUR BUTTON-THAT'S HOW I GOT HERE !!!! I've been working on it all day with the computer on my stomach & finally asked my son. He read the directions you gave me & told me you gave me everything I needed but I didn't understand the language. So he did it & showed me how to do it & I"m SOOOOO excited about this!!!! This has made this a perfect weekend for me. Hope you had one too!
