giveaway #62

The three winners of the fun and trendy knitting bags from the Knitterella collection are:

dclulu on ravelry, Rasa, & Frankly Beka

Congratulations! Please contact me at yarnonthehouse@gmail.com to collect your prizes.



I'm super-duper excited to announce that we have Maya from Springtree Road back on the blog, but this time the feature is all about her and her lovely indie yarn company. If you want to check out her previous visit, click here. You all know that I'm a die hard fan of semi-solids and Maya does not disappoint! She is very talented at dyeing up beautiful semi-solid colorways that have luxuriously saturated color and gusto! Maya answered some fun YOTH interview questions for us. Check out her written interview with me...


1. Maya, please start by telling us a little bit about yourself and what you do?

Sure! I live near Atlanta, Georgia with my husband Ross, my daughter V, and our 3 super spoiled kitty cats. We homeschool. I love taking photographs, storytelling, and knitting. And I’m an indie yarn dyer. I started my shop with handspun yarn and painted roving in 2009, but as of January 2011 I’ve been dyeing millspun yarn pretty much exclusively.

2. I'm a sucker for semi-solids and your yarns truly look beautiful! What's your favorite yarn, fiber, or color that you offer?

Thanks, Ve! It’s really hard to pick just one because my favorite yarn or color is usually whatever I’m working with at that moment. But I’ll pick my Tigerlily Wine colorway today, which is a tiger lily orange glazed with deep wine.




3. How did you get into dyeing fiber? How did you learn?

I was a knitter already, but when I lost my at-home job as an editor for a non-profit I immediately started looking for something else I could do that would keep me at home with my daughter. When I told my husband I wanted to make yarn to sell online he said go for it, so I did!

I learned from several sources – videos online, books, and a mighty fine network of fiber artists who were kind enough to give me some of their best tips and tricks and answer my many silly questions.

4. For budding new yarnies out there, what's the one piece of advice you have?

Set boundaries. If you let it, fiber will take over your house and the business will take over your life. You’ve got to find as much balance as you can get or you’ll burn out.

5. What will be next for you? Do you have new yarns or colorways in the works that you can share with us?


Yes, I do! I’m introducing a new fiber blend at my next update toward the end of this week – it’s an alpaca/silk/cashmere blend, fingering weight, and it’s really just super soft and beautiful.

I’ve also just started giving a preview of the yarns that will be in the next update about 24 hours before they go on sale so that my customers have a chance to plan their purchase beforehand. They show up on my site under the heading “Coming Soon.” I announce my updates in several locations – my newsletter, Ravelry group, Facebook page, and in the photo slideshow on my site.

6. Why do you knit?


I think knitting/crochet is unique as a craft because so many artists have a hand in the creation of the finished object. From the blend of fibers, to the color, to the pattern, to the knitting – so many people’s creative visions go into it. And even if you don’t feel like a particularly creative person, if you knit or crochet you can create something of beauty. And it’s useful! It’s the perfect craft.

7. When did you learn to knit and who taught you?

My brother and I visited family in Ireland when I was 16 years old and my grandmother taught me to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off. Occasionally I’d find myself in a lovely little yarn shop and I’d buy something like a set of US10 bamboo needles, not having a clue what to do with them really. Sometimes I’d get out my needles and some yarn to be sure that I remembered how to knit and then I’d put it all away again.

One day when my daughter was about 2, I thought about how I always intended to learn to knit, to follow a pattern. I decided that was the time. So I made a simple moss stitch scarf for her, and I’ve pretty much always had a couple of WIPs going ever since.

8. If you were to knit and live anywhere in the world, where would you knit and live?

I would love to try on the Pacific Northwest and see how that fits me.

9. What's been your worst knitting disaster?

Probably my worst knitting disaster is having this really great idea for a pattern, searching to make sure no one else had done it before, procrastinating for about a year or so, and then finding out that someone else had written a very similar pattern in the meantime. At least I learned early on that I’m not a designer – I just couldn’t seem to get it down on paper so that it made sense. Fortunately, there are many, many others who are brilliant at it.

10. And last but not least, if you were enjoying a favorite drink while reading my blog, what would it be?

If I’m reading in the morning, it’d be a cherry smoothie with a big bunch of fresh kale hidden in it. If it’s Friday evening, it’d be a margarita.


Maya has generously sponsored two lucky followers the chance to win a skein of THEIR CHOICE (from in-stock yarns) from Springtree Road. How fun! If you win, you get to pick your own yarn! I love that! Check out some of her gorgeous colorways:






In addition to the fantastic giveaway, she is also offering a short term 10% coupon off of in-stock yarns, but the coupon ends tomorrow, June 7th, at 11pm Eastern. So, hop on the deal if you are interested by using the coupon code "YOTH10" during checkout.


I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:


1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.

2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 6/19/11. Check out Springtree Road's Flickr Photostream and let us know what your favorite colorway is. I know it's hard to choose just one - pick a few if you have to!


I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.

Sincerely,

Ve

Kathy said...

ONE of my faves (so hard to pick just one) is Sangria.

DCBrown said...

There are so many to choose from...I want to stay away from my norm (all blues and yellows)...so I would have to say Fleur d'Oranger would be my favorite.

Joan said...

That Rainforest is gorgeous. Hard to choose though, with Weald, Kohl, Silver Screen, and Pasque in the mix.

Rachel said...

I'm lusting after rainforest - can't you just feel a lovely lace shawl in that shade floating over your shoulders and making you look like a movie star?
Might have to sneak some more yarn in the house...

Andrea said...

I'm loving that Tigerlily Wine! Reds and oranges are kind of my favorite so that is so perfect!

jeanniemac said...

All the colors are beautiful but I'm really attracted to Rainforest.

I've been admiring these yarns for a while so it's hard to pick a favorite, but I do admire the depth of colors in Pasque and Rainforest.

susanmhj said...

OMG, How to choose? Cattail, Boreal, tiger lily wine, I would love to win - but torture to pick just one beautiful color!

Leafy Seadragon or Blackcurrant Jam! Gorgeous colours.

JanetK said...

That is a hard choice!! I really like the Silverscreen colorway, but Cinnabar is a close second...

Frankly Beka said...

The tiger lily wine is so striking. My sister would love it. But my favorite is in the coming soon section. Kohl, in muscadine sock. It would make a nice pair of socks for my hubby.

I'd say Pasque, Tigerlily Wine and Anemone. But it's really because we have to choose... All colors are beautiful !

Lindsay Cogan said...

Cannot possible choose just one they are all wonderful.

Alice said...

I tend to be a variation of a lyric, "when I'm not near the yarn I love, I love the yarn I'm near." In that spirit, my current favorite is Foxglove, which Maya just sent to members of her Summer Sock Clique. I also LOVE Tigerlily Wine, which I also own.

Michelle said...

All of the colorways are beautiful! But I'm leaning towards Silver Spruce...

Hi Ve,

Thank you for this interview with Maya. I am always interested to understand an artist's process or one's motivations on taking a different path.

As far as the colours, it's difficult to make a choice :) I would have to go with no, wait, mmmm.....All of them?

Also big thanks for the chance to win one of your always awesome prizes.
