I’m in love with your bright colored yarns, and that you carry Mini’s in your easy store.
Just Lovely….
#88 – Word Lily: Congrats on 100 sales! I just finished reading The Hunger Games (all three books), so I loved seeing that you have colorways named after characters!
#114 – Jincey: Congratulations on reaching 100! Makes you sound old, doesn’t it? ;-) I love the Merino Super Wash. Thanks for offering the give-away.

Thanks to everyone who participated in the give-away!! :) You’re all awesome. I will be e-mailing the people who won shortly. Much love!!

ETA: Couldn’t find all of your e-mails, so I commented back to your comments on the original post!

100TH SALE GIVEAWAY!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS ALL DONE! CONGRATS TO THE WINNERS! :)

We made it to 100 sales at Nooch Fiber! Go us! I’m so so happy – it’s almost our 6 month anniversary and I feel like 100 sales is not too shabby. :)

To celebrate we’re doing a super awesome giveaway of these four beautiful mini skeins (45yds / superwash merino / hand dyed):

Last time we did a giveaway there were lots and lots of comments, so this time we’ve decided to give each mini skein away to one person, meaning that four people get to win! Yay!

In order to be in the running, please visit Nooch Fiber and take a look at our stock first! (We really appreciate it!) Then come back here and comment on this post! It’s that easy. The four winners will be selected on February 5th, 2012 through a random number generator. :D

But that’s not all! As a thanks to everyone who has supported us we are offering a brand new coupon until February 5th: NOOCH100 will give you 20% off your entire purchase!

Thanks everyone and hope to see your comments soon! Much love! <3

Happy Sunday!

It’s great to spend time in our new apartment on the weekends… We finally have enough space to just hang out! Woo!

I’ve been very busy with my new ladybug spinning wheel. Check out all the spinning I’ve done in the past week or so:


2-ply fingering


Single-ply fingering


2-ply worsted


2-ply worsted


2-ply fingering


2-ply worsted

Pretty cool, huh? It’s a LOT faster than spinning on a spindle… I’m pretty sure I’m going to start selling mini skeins of fingering handspun on Nooch Fiber! :D Speaking of Nooch Fiber, I just added two new sets of mini skeins (with many MANY more to come, promise!):

There are LOTS more drying right now, to be posted tomorrow or the day after. :) I’m also planning another fun giveaway here on the blog and some special coupons…………. So keep an eye out for that post! :D

Hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend! :D

Commenter #2 –

Congratulations JOE BOCANEGRA!

Thanks so much to everyone who commented – this was super fun! I’m thinking of doing it again sometime in the near future, so stay tuned! :D

Here is what Joe’s getting in the mail:

Questions from the Giveaway!

Good morning!

I had some responses for some of the people who commented on the giveaway thread (don’t forget to comment for your chance to win two mini-skeins!), so I figured I would do them here instead of screw up the comment count by replying in the actual thread.

I wish I could spin the roving colors are lovely! And the small hexapuff collections look like a lot of fun to knit.

Your rovings make me wish I knew how to spin. But if I spin, when will I knit??

You should all definitely try out spinning! It’s one of my favorite hobbies now and it’s totally portable and affordable if you’re just starting out with a drop spindle. I use the Turkish drop spindle from knitpicks and love it!

Pretty! Something awesome– I may be able to start working on my Beekeeper’s Quilt again tomorrow, after my arm has been giving me problems. I’m up to 30 puffs!

I feel you! :( I also have problems with my hands/arms/fingers that can sometimes make it difficult to knit/spin/have fun. Currently I’m struggling with an annoying base joint on my thumb (De Quervain’s Syndrome) and some trigger fingers in my right hand. Ugh!

love that you have hunger games themed stuff- I have only read 1 or 2 of these books(i have to ask my daughter-she gave me them to read, but I know we don’t have them all) and I loooooved the books. I feel like a re-read then I need to come back to check out the fibery goodness to see what I just can’t live without. You have been favorited.

Yay! We love to dye “collections” in cool themes! I REALLY loved those books and the colors are the way that I see the characters. :)

Lovely yarn! I handed in my proposal for my dissertation on Friday, yay! Though that mightn’t be very awesome to people who aren’t me. So another awesome thing is that Christopher Lee is coming to give a talk in my college this week. I am an excited fangirl.
My Ravelry name is Forkis, and in case I missed anything about the offer being counrty-specific, I’ll pay for any extra cost associated with shipping to Ireland if I win!

Congrats on your dissertation proposal!!! I will be at that stage in less than 1 year! o.o A little bit scary to think about, haha. And the offer is not US only – I’m happy to ship anywhere else in the world! :D

Tell me about the hexi-puffs. Sounds interesting! I don’t have any cats or dogs but I knit for my teddy bears and grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.

Wow – that’s a lot of children! :D The hexpuffs are part of a large quilt/blanket and are so fun to knit, since each one feels like a little happy victorious FO when you finish it! :) They’re stuffed for extra warmth which makes them super squishy, too! You can search ravelry for The Beekeeper’s Quilt pattern to see.

I wish i knew how to dye yarn! The “christmas” yarns in this give away will make an awesome sweater for my son’s 1st christmas!

It’s really not hard! There are lots of tutorials online and you can start out with Kool-aid, which is totally non-toxic and can be used in your kitchen! :)

NOOCH FIBER MINI-SKEIN GIVEAWAY!!

**This is all done! Thanks so much to everyone who commented!!**

Nick and I thought this would be fun to do, so we’re doing a…

SUPER AWESOME NOOCH FIBER MINI-SKEIN GIVEAWAY!

What can you win?
Why, these lovely 45 yard fingering weight mini-skeins, hand dyed by yours truly:

(Yes, the colors are Christmas themed! The unusually cold weather in NYC has made us long for December!)

How can you win?
First of all, we would love it if you went to our etsy shop, Nooch Fiber to check out our other hand dyed yarns and fibers! After that, leave a comment on this post telling us something awesome – about your own scrap yarn blanket, your cats, how much you love the holidays, a cool dream you had, videogames you play, anything! I’ll wait until next Saturday, November 12th (5PM EST) to lock the comments and randomly choose a commenter to win! Make sure you either include your e-mail in the comment somehow or come back to the blog next Saturday to see if you won! (It would really suck for you to win and be totally un-contactable!)

Many hugs, kisses, and kittens! Can’t wait to see the comments and share two of our mini-skeins! (include your puffs as a picture if you’re a puffer like me!)

ETA: Please only comment once! :) D’oh, should have remembered to say that the first time around!
