Well, this month I couldn't resist and I went ahead and bought a Phat Fiber Sample Box. I was up and sitting in front of the computer at 7:AM so I figured why not try it and see what happens. I gotta tell ya, trying to get one was half the fun. All the excitement and the heart pounding, followed by a crazy adrenaline rush. I even did the Phatty dance for a few hours after I bought it. Good Times.
Anyway, it's here and it's cool, I guess. It felt a little anticlimactic. The theme being "Oceanic", there were some awesome blues and purples color all over the box. Didn't get any stitch markers and only two patterns. A really nice card with a beautiful picture on it and this yarn.
I also got this super cute yarn sample without a card or tag. If anyone recognizes it please let me know who made it. It had a pretty fuchsia colored ribbon on it. It's so lovely I would love to look at other works from this artisan, whoever he/she is. Thanks.
My favorite yarn of the bunch was Flying Wright Farms Panda Sox in the Sea Glass colorway. If anyone has this and would like to trade, I am willing to trade any of the fiber in my box. Check it out.
