Got My Phat On!

Got my Phat Fiber box today! If you don't know what that is, go here for more info. First, I got a llama stamp on my box, yay! I don't know why that's important to anyone but me, but there it is.
Look at all the great stuff!

Border Leicester Locks from Altered Visions. These are lovely. Very clean and brightly dyed. I can't see any VM in there.
Spinning batt called Ides of March and a little cloud of angora from Giffordables. I got one of their batts last month too, which was really lovely by the way. This one is beautiful colors and has lots of springy texture.
Little blue fiber braid from H.A.Y. It's called "Summer Day" and it is Falklands. Soft and beautifully dyed.

Pretty rust tweed mini skein from Jags Funky Fibers. I love the colors in this. I might have to see if she has more of this for a felted project or something.
Have I ever mentioned that I love yellow? I really do. The yellow yarn is from Teresa Levite Studio and it might be my favorite thing in the box because it is just the perfect shade of yellow.
I also really like the green yarn from Deborah Quesnette. This is handspun and so even and fine. A very lovely shade of green, too and would go with my yellow fetish.

A Ruddawg bag! Love the fabric and the workmanship is excellent.

From Jen Hintz Yarn Arts a sweet little skein of minty green laceweight Merino. Very soft and lovable.
I love the way East Kentucky Fibers did their samples. They sent several little bits of roving in different colors so you could see a sampling of their stuff. Some of it is Rambo! (I love the Rambo) Best of all, it's dye lot identified for easy matching.
Fire Lizard sock yarn! I love all her stuff and one day I'm going to go shopping. This one is Enchanted Forest on the Joy yarn.

I was really excited about the green fiber braid. It's from Vines and it is South African Fine Wool. I've been seeing ads for lots of South African wools, but this is my chance to put my fingers on some. I really enjoyed petting it and I'm looking forward to spinning. Love the color too.
Princess Emma's sent two lovely carp stitch markers. Stitch markers are not something I tend to use, but these are so pretty, I'm thinking of adding them to a charm bracelet!
Beaded yarn from Laura Murphy. How can anyone not love that! Everything she does is just beautiful.
Worsted wool yarn from Bohemian Knitter Chic. Love these colors! She has some really neat patterns too.

Way cool copper shawl pin from Wyrding Studios. I love copper jewelry and this is such a sweet piece!
Sock pattern from Avalon Fiber Arts. I'm saving these because I AM going to knit socks!

Lamb stitch marker from Yarndemon Designs is also going on the bracelet! I'm in love with it!
Gorgeous knit happens bookmark from Becky's Paper Creations.
Something beautiful from In Stitches. A row counter, maybe? I gotta get ahold of her and find out for sure because I've never used any of those kinds of tools and don't know what I'm looking at. Lovely, though!
And, a selection of coupons and business cards.
Phew! What a box and what a blog post. I'll share when I've done some spinning.


  1. What a great box! I'm bummed I didn't get one this month. Laura Murphy (WildeThyme) is my favorite spinner, her yarns are always beautiful! thanks for sharing!

  2. Great blog. And thanks for blogging about my stitch markers and adding a link in there. I hope I get one of your samples in my box!

  3. Pretty box, I can't wait until I get mine! (I carved the llama stamp for Jessie! Well, she bought it in my etsy shop).

    Kata/Odd-ish Creations.

  4. I'm all out of that yarn :( I had exactly enough to do the set of samples but I'll be sure to let you know if I find more! I'm not sure if it will felt because it is a fiber blend, I forgot to write the fiber types on the tag >.<

  5. What a great write up for the box. And thanks for the link to my shop! Awww, how sweet, my little sheepie is going on a bracelet. :)
    I can't wait to get my box!!

  6. I love your llama stamp on your box and you got a great box of goodies I got one last month but this time my internet was down so maybe next month:) ((((Hugs))))) Darcy
