Giveaways and contests galore! I'm discovering more of the online fiber community as time goes by, and I'm loving every minute of it. Most of these places I wouldn't have even known exist, but I'm glad I've found out about them!

First up: The Phat Fiber blog is giving away a learn-to-spin drop spindle kit this week, courtesy of SilverSunAlpacas. Just go to SilverSunAlpacas' etsy site and find one item you really love (It's hard to choose just one!) and leave a comment on the Phat Fiber blog. (psst - My favorite is the Red Sun batt. It just looks so fiery and celestial... and soft!)

Okay, this one is JUST cool. My fiance and his family live in California, spitting distance from Disneyland. But my family lives in Texas. So when I saw this giveaway from Out And About With The Family and Sweet Life In The Valley, I was ECSTATIC. Four tickets to Disneyland, including airfare and hotel!

Next, from KnitPurlGurl, (an awesome blog I previously didn't know about but am now obsessed with) an interchangeable bamboo knitting needle set from an awesome shop called WEBS. This set looks incredible! It has US sizes 4 through 11 needle tips, three lengths and two thicknesses of flexible cable which you can combine to make an even LONGER cable, knobs to hold your work in place when you're putting it in your project bag or changing tasks, and a needle gauge that has a built-in yarn cutter. How cool is that! Just head to WEBS and do a bit of browsing, find something that really catches your eye, and post a comment on the KnitPurlGurl post with what item it is. Then post on the WEBS blog letting them know that KnitPurlGurl sent you, and you've entered the giveaway! Check out the blog post for lots of ways to get additional entries. (Hint: I'm doing one of them right now!)

Otherhood is giving away a pair of snuggly PJs and awesome socks in lovely pink for breast cancer awareness. Enter to show that you support a day that we can put breast cancer to bed for good! (I know, lame pun, but seriously. If there's one cause I support, it's ending breast cancer.)

Born 2 Impress has an awesome giveaway, too! is offering an awesome bundle of projects for halloween that are not-so-scary. Check it out, it's too cute!

SimplySweetHome is also giving away the Not-So-Scary pack!

MomStart has an awesome giveaway, not craft-related but still REALLY awesome -- The Sims 3! I don't know about you, but I've looooved the Sims since I was little (I used to have so much fun watching my Sim City have tornadoes... I was a weird kid.) So head over there and enter!

And finally... Do you make handmade items as Christmas gifts for your loved ones? The answer could win you an issue of Verena Magazine with tons of gorgeous knitting patterns, as well as a pair of bamboo knitting needles from StarryEyed. Leave your answer as a comment, follow her blog, join the mailing list, and blog about the contest for lots of chances to win!

I know I've abandoned you, my poor, lonely blog. But maybe these awesome giveaways will make it up to you? Or perhaps pictures of my first sock-in-progress? You'll have to wait for those, though... My camera has gone missing!

Till next time!
