I'm Phat!

I received my first Phat Fiber box the other day, and it is AWESOME! I have been contributing samples of my stitch markers for the box and I got my own box for March. Sit back, relax & enjoy looking at all these goodies, gonna be a photo heavy post here.......Such lovely goodies!

This is from Corgi Hill Farm, a few chocolate kisses, maple candy (YUM), and this gorgeous handspun yarn! The yarn is hand blended superwash merino & firestar.
Here we have all of the coupons that I got. Sorry guys, I blocked out anything relating to the coupon codes... those are mine! LOL And there are some awesome deals here!!
This came from Calizona Designs, super cute tiny green beaded stitch markers, a lovely tile pendant, and some gorgeous hand dyed yarn in Lucky Springtime colorway. Also included was a pattern for a headband & a $10 gift certificate!! How awesome is that?!
This lovely yarn came from Desired Haven Farm. It's called Maddy's Potpourri, made up from odds & ends, blended with Maddy's Charcoal Fleece. I never knew that odds & ends could look so pretty!
Here we have a gorgeous beaded row counter from In Stitches. While I might use this as a row counter, I believe it is destined to be a bracelet too, because it's just too pretty to hide in my knitting notions bag! :)And a generous 100 yd. sample of Kangaroo Dyer's handdyed yarn. (75% superwash wool/25% nylon) It's purple too! My favorite!! This is some really soft, squishy yarn, I can't wait to try knitting with it!Here we have some natural plant dyed merino top from Natchwoolie, in the Irish Moss colorway. Incredibly soft fiber, & the color is gorgeous, the photo doesn't do it justice.This pretty pink (Rhodium) yarn is Billy Shakes Sock yarn from Nerdclub 2000 Yarn & Fiber. It also came with a great coupon.Here are some hand dyed mohair locks in the Lugh Colorway, from Northern Lights Fiber Co. I can't wait to give these a spin, I've never tried locks before.
Check out this cute Itty Bitty sock & lace stitch marker from Oddish Creations. How adorable, & I'm sure it will get plenty of use here with my knitting.I received a couple of great patterns in the box. I've got the Bocca Baciatia, a beautiful hair comb pattern, from Bohemian Knitter Chic, and a Felted Cat Toy pattern from 7 Yaks Design. I'm sure Jasmine is wanting me to make that first before anything else! LOLFluffington Farms sent some lovely Easter Dress fiber, a blend of two different merinos, angora, firestar & slik. This fiber is just heavenly to touch & the pastel colors are so sweet. She also sent some of her great smelling bath salts. I can tell you that those will be put to good use in a very timely manner!This great little bag is from Ruddawg. Extremely well made little bag, it'll be perfect for my spinning goodies!Here is a lovely sample of handspun yarn from Simply Twisted Yarn. Another one that I can't wait to knit up. I have to say though that a lot of these little yarn samples are just so pretty like they are it's gonna be hard to unwind them. :)

Here is another gorgeous yarn sample from Tactile. This is superwash merino sport weight sock yarn, and it's soooo soft!And here is some beautiful fiber from Tracy Rios. This little batt of fiber is awesome to pet. LOL And if you do nothing else you have to go check out her angora bunnies! How adorable!This lovely fiber blend (50% alpaca/30% merino/20% Tussah Silk) is from Whorling Tides. Great color & fiber blend! Definitely makes me want to go buy more! :)This little sample from Wooly Hands is another one that the photo doesn't do justice to. It's much more green, but it's a pretty soft, mossy green. I love it! And yes, that's another coupon there that I blocked out. Everyone was very generous with the coupons!!And last but certainly not least, we have some Silk top w/noil from Zebisis Designs. This fiber is absolutely gorgeous!! And another one that I can hardly wait to spin! I've never tried silk before so I'm really looking forward to it! They also have lovely spindles in their shop!WHEW! That's it! Really guys, if you see something you like go check out the shops. Everyone in the contributors group is super nice & their products are just awesome!

Oh wow, yay! It looks like your box this month was SO LOVELY. I haven't got mine yet (darn international shipping!)

Its exciting to see your own samples, yours is the first box I've seen them in so far.

I'm proud of my stitch markers, since its my first venture, but they are NO WAY as awesome as yours. I hope one is in my box, and if not, I will DEFINITELY be buying some!
