Somehow I missed that Jessie posted my giveaway skein of handspun on the PHATfiber blog. Just visit my store at www.BitsyKnits.etsy.com, take a look at the stuff (just put up LOTS of yarns and fiber) and add a comment to the PHATfiber blog post found here:
That will enter you to win a skein on my own handspun in custom carded colorway South Sea Isles, a lucious blend of Romney, Mohair and Alpaca.
Don't forget, all purchases from the shop are eligible to win the March PHATfiber Superbox. Just make sure to list your purchase at the Ravelry superbox discussion board found here:
AND IF THAT ISN'T ENOUGH...
A lucky few PHATfiber boxes in February and March contained a special "GET IT FREE" card that gets you a skein of yarn, braid or bag of fiber free with a minimum purchase from the shop. Check your boxes carefully and don't let this offer slip by.

As for me, I've recently had a lovely stash enhancement. My wonderful Amazing Lace Swap partner, GuapaM sent me this incredible package from Germany and I'm finally getting a chance to photo it. She included an amazing assortment (the chocolate is missing, its already been 'used'). Yarns (all lace weight) include a HUGE skein from Estonia in teals, a so soft magenta skein from Finland and the wonderfully colorful zauberwool crazy ball in lace weight. Also in the box was the hand sewn project bag in the middle with patchwork, a zipper pocket and my name embroidered on cute little sheep. GuapaM and I have had a wonderful time getting to know each other over the past weeks and found that we have quite a bit in common in addition to our love of knitting.
Thanks so much Simone, I love it all

As I type, the Canadian National Anthem is being sung and its time to get to work. I've been training hard for the winter Ravelympics, collecting more than 40 yarns, weighing in at over 15 pounds. It remains to be seen what the final project will - what I do know is tat it will be my own brand of freestyle. I'm looking forward to hitting the bumps.

In keeping with my positive attitude, I'm excited to announce that I've become a PHATfiber contributor beginning January 2010. My samples have been sent in a special new colorway and I'll be putting the fiber and yarn in the shop to coincide with the box going on sale.
For those of you that aren't familiar, check out PHATfiber.com for more info. Its a great way to check out indie dyers from around the country and I'm really happy to have joined the team.
Here is a sneak peek at my first contribution. I'll tell you all about it when the box is revealed. That's all for now, gotta run & open the 60 pound box of beautiful rovings that just arrived for painting.
