A Cloudlover Treat & a *GIVEAWAY*

You all know that Cloudlover Yarn & Fiber is one of my absolute favorite shops. Ever. If I scroll back through the grillion photos I have uploaded to this site, this is the very first.

Cloudlover Love.

In case you’re wondering, I have spun all of these fibers up — they are not lingering beautifully in my stash. (Phew!)

And I named the photo “Cloudlover Love.” I’m not even kidding.

I’ve made no fewer than 3 pairs of socks for Socks with Sarah with Cloudlover yarn…

Churchmouse Basic Socks in Aegean…

I’ve spun quite a bit of fiber from Cloudlover, too. In fact, my very first ‘Learn to Spin’ kit was purchased from the shop at the Wisconsin Sheep & Wool Festival and over the years I don’t think I’ve bought more wool from anywhere else. Some of my favorite spins include…

20140710-093810-34690536.jpgAnd most recently, Lakefront which I wrote about yesterday.

Oh, while I’m here I should probably also share my current spin in progress, too, right?

20140710-123446-45286960.jpgI can’t wait to see how this one turns out! And yes, I haven’t said it, but it’s worth putting into words that in addition to beautiful colorways, Cloudlover bases for both yarn & fiber are always top-notch.

I’ve learned and grown and been constantly inspired as both a knitter & spinner largely through the beautiful colorways of Cloudlover Yarn & Fiber. Last year during the Tour de Fleece I even won a 3-month subscription to the fiber club. To no one’s surprise I am completely hooked and have tried all but one of the various clubs throughout the last year. Every month is a surprise that was better than the last & I just so love that!

  1. OMG I love her yarn – and her fiber which I will get as soon as I get my Aura — my favorite color way is PHLOX! It’s so understated and would make the most gorgeous socks! And I can’t wait to use the Coupon Code – next month’s money is already spent …………

  2. Wow this is hard to many beauties. Mother of dragons, Does get countless, Mr Bates, lady Sybil. I can’t decide.

  3. Just one?? It’s a toss up among Lady Sybil, Lady Edith and about three others!! But for a start I’m ordering Lady Sybil for socks!! Great discount! Thanks!

  4. WOW!!!!!!!!!! Another fabulous giveaway… I don’t think I can choose just one colorway, but if I had to, I think it would be the blueberry picking. Not just lovely blues (yum) but it looks like whoever named it has really been blueberry picking, with all the purrple, brown andma dab of red thrown in. It really does look like the barrens in August. Oh, but then there is Aegean… and mag mell, and rivendell… please don’t make me choose.

  5. What an awesome giveaway! But seriously, how can we pick just one colorway as a favorite? If I have to choose just one, I’ll pick Ponderosa…but Artemis is awesome too…And Faunalia, Mr Bates, Abalone, Nevermore…all fantastic…..oooh…and peacock! and my hubby would love Wassail…

    I may have to use that coupon a few times for sure πŸ™‚

  6. Ooooooooh hard to choose. I am in love with the colour plum right now so I will say ‘iris’ . Thank you!

  7. I love Cornucopia, but one time she had a color called I think Oogy Boogy. I got cart jacked with that one and it made me sad.

  8. I love winter rose and lady Sybil. After reading Sarah’s blog last time I already ordered 2 skeins. Just waiting to come.

  9. I have to say I love your Lakefront spin, but my favorite colorways on Cloudlover are Ponderosa in first place closely followed by Rosewood. I think I’m biased, though, having lived in the Coconino National Forest area for 3.5 years. πŸ™‚

  10. Um, I don’t know if this will count, but I am in love with your double marl up there which included Kimono. Want. But I also really love the Winter Rose and have been more than a little anxious every time I see a pic of your socks–because I want them.

  11. Dowager Countess is my favorite colorway and my favorite character on the show. I love her one-liners.

  12. Definitely a tie between Mojito and Aegean. I tried to decide but then started adding others to the tie so that was a no-go. πŸ˜‰

  13. Blackberry Truffle is going to have to be my choice today…as I am making a date with the mosquitoes to pick some for jam tonight! Thank you dear Sarah! xo

  14. there are way too many lovely colors to pick from. Rivendell is gorgeous….and Madeira makes me swoon….Calendula would make me feel like I am dancing in sunshine all through our cold midwest winter….but I must choose just one so I think I would love to see how Abalone would knit up.

  15. Wow! Thanks for the giveaway! I love everything in the shop, naturally, but Mojito is definitely calling my name. I will be taking advantage of that coupon code… πŸ™‚

  16. Holy smokes!!! First, what an awesome discount and SO amazing that it’s good until the end of the year?!? I know where all my money is going!! Second, this giveaway made my jaw drop! But you expect me to name just one favourite?? Oohh…Dowager Countess is definitely the front runner, although Lady Sybil and Winter Rose keeps catching my eye too!

  17. They are all so beautiful, it’s hard to chose a favorite! I really love the Blackberry Truffle, but every time I look at the website, I’m always drawn to Phlox! Maybe because my mom used to have huge areas in her garden covered with phlox, we would weed it together. That’s it, Phlox is my favorite because it reminds me of my mom πŸ™‚

  18. I’m knitting with Rosewood right now and loving it. It’s so hard to pick a favorite – Cloudlover is the best!

  19. How generous and exciting! I have coveted the Downton Abbey colors so it is easy to select Lady Edith! Can’t wait to spend a little more time on the site and pick some favorites to come home. kbrtmyr on Ravelry

  20. What an AMAZING giveaway! So hard to choose just one! I love Douager Countess, Peacock, Aegean, all my favorite runners up, but may absolute favorite is Concord….I can never have enough purple!

  21. Holy crap, this is totally awesome! I have made note of that code and will be using it often before the year is up, I’m sure. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I did love my last Cloudlover spin which was a braid each of Verdigris and Wintergreen.

  22. WOW!! What an awesome discount and giveaway! Hard to choose just one – all the colours are gorgeous. I love Catalina – it’s so bright and fun.

  23. So many beautiful colors. If I have to pick, I’d choose Dowager Countess or Copacabana.

  24. it’s a tie between Mag Mell and Lady Edith, and I really, really want to learn how to knit socks so I can play along!

  25. Wow, love them all, but I think I’ll go with Lady Edith since she is one of my favorites. Can’t wait for Downton to start up again. Thank you!

  26. My favorites right now are Catalina for yarn and Lady Edith and Winter Rose in Fiber. But they are all so gorgeous and I’m always so amazed at how they spin and knit so beautifully! What a great giveaway and discount!! Thanks!

  28. Oooh I love them all!
    But I’d have to say that Iris is my favorite- I love the contrasting colors!

  29. I love the Downton colorways! But Winter Rose and Catalina are also pretty!! Great giveaway!!

  30. After changing my mind about a dozen times but if I have to say only one then I think Lady Edith, (or maybe Madeira, or would it be Peacock, or,or ………) the colour ways are all so gorgeous!
