Light Brown Hare- Giveaway!



While I was browsing through a few hundred shawl patterns on Ravelry- I happened upon a new one by Dale of Light Brown Hare. It's called Supernova and although the yarn specified is no longer available, the pattern was written specifically for 1 6oz skein of her Jackrabbit fingering weight yarn. How easy can it get?! Just purchase a skein, download a pattern and you're on your way to a beautiful shawl/throw/tablecloth!

I have a skein of her Jackrabbit yarn in Nebula#5- and it's been whispering to me to make something out it!

So, it's a sad thing, but some of you have yet to try any Light Brown Hare yarn! Here is your chance! We're giving away this beautiful Nebula sock yarn (Shearlock not included) this week. Just Visit Light Brown Hare, find something you like, and write about it in the comments section below. Make sure you let everyone else know about it too! We'll count those tweeting/facebook udates as extra entries- let us know you did it!

Dale, I'm sure to cast on with my lovely Nebula yarn soon, and you can expect to see more of me lurking around your shop soon :)

Milky Way sock yarn!

A Rose said...

Well, this is easy, I already have the Artic Hare, 6 oz, Star Date 1 in my favorites.

Manon L said...

Me too elendir!
The "milky way" really wears its name well. Funny that -20C brings around my part of the country such beautifull starry skies...just like that color...seriously!

Jennifer said...

So many pretty yarns to choose from! I think I favorited about 4 of them, but Sebastian is my favorite favorite!

Jennifer said...

Tweeted and facebooked!

HOLY CRAP. Carmen 2 superwash. That is the most gorgeous stuff I have ever seen. It's like.... the ruby slippers of YARN. RTed @millarca

ElleVee said...

Taiga 1! GORGEOUS. Also Tweeted about it!

Magan said...

I can't choose between Robin's Nest and Olive Grove- they are both just incredible.

burnt rain said...

I really liked the ice rink colourway seen here: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=36991617 a lot of her more subtle lighter colourways really speak to me though.

Kristen said...

I like the Picadilly 2 colorway in the sock yarn.

Amanda said...

Love the Hand dyed sock superwash wool/silk/nylon/silver - 100g - 415yds in Caliban and Miranda both! Very pretty!

InJuneau said...

Everytime I go to the Light Brown Hare site I am drawn to the Taiga yarns, since I live in a Taiga forest. One of these days I'm sure they're going to come home to me!

Jenn Doll said...

Carmen 2 please!!

Susan said...

This store's offerings are so gorgeous! My Jackrabbit favorites are any of the ones in Star Date, Nebula, or Crispin's Day. Absolutely lovely!

Dawning Dreams said...

Three Hares yarn is my favorite b/c it's black with a lovely pop of green. Very beautiful!

monkeymanm said...

I've been drooling over every variant of Nebula since the shop opened, although it's being chased around my brain pretty quickly by Carmen on Arctic hare :)

Shannon said...

I LOVE TAIGA 1 sock yarn! I think it has just enough green throughout the black... ahh. :) I will be posting this on my facebook page!

Tyler Street said...

Ice Rink is a really beautiful subtle looking yarn -- I've just starting learning to knit and I already have two socks on the go. Well, one pathetic little toe-shaped item that is going into the historical collection as soon as I can bear to pull out the needles. But the cuff-down ribbing is looking promising. Soon, soon, I will need more sock yarn!! Thanks for alerting me to Dale's Etsy shop!

Tanya aka usarmychick said...

For some reason the Jackrabbit Crispin 2 reminds me of Farimir. And I covet them both. And Red Desert 4 looks so toasty and warm that I could cry because I am tired of being cold!

Turtle said...

Julie said...

Dang, there are some really beautiful yarns in here! I think I have to go with the "Sebastian" Jackrabbit yarn. It was a hard choice though!

knittingdancer said...

This is a very hard decision. All of the yarns are beautiful. My favorite sock yarn is Berry Pie.
My favorite light worsted is Long Purples 1 and my favorite heavy worsted weight is Cherry Pie.

sue said...

All lovely, and beyond wonderful yarn sample packaging. One of my favorites - Arctic Hare - colorway Ginger Nut. So deep and rich and love the silver sparkle.

Mama Jude said...

I am in love with Bright Star I and Bright Star II. I think it's the sparkly silver combined with the shades of blue--so beautiful!

HeatherD said...

I love sparkly and they definitely had some sparkly yarn. For some reason, and I don't know why, Stardate 1 called to me. I am not a big fan of red and usually avoid it, but this one called to me. Maybe it was my inner Trekkie squeeing about the name!! I also liked Ultraviolet A and Avenger 2.

Shibaguyz said...

I would take a BOAT LOAD of Hand dyed sock superwash merino - 170g - 600yds - Crispin's Day 2.

OH! And the Hand dyed heavy worsted weight wool - 227g- 450yds - Guavaberry.
