Light Brown Hare- Giveaway!



Let's start the week off right, with a good yarn! I am a big Light Brown Hare fan, and it pleases me to no end that we are able to give away this beautiful skein of "Jackalope" fingering weight yarn.

I mean, look at this dye job! So painterly! And with this month's theme being "master painters" this really fits well, doesn't it? If you love this colorway, it's called "Sunday Dreaming" and you might be able to convince lightbrownhare to make some for you. Look for more gorgeous Light Brown Hare samples in February's box!

We're giving away this beautiful 100g skein of Light Brown Hare Jakalope this week! Just visit the Light Brown Hare shop, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll draw for a winner later in the week. Be sure and use your twitter and facebook powers to gain extra entries!

Thank you for the opportunity to sample your yarns, Dale!

I was blown away with all the hand dyed yarn. The colors look so great. It's difficult to say which is my favorite but I think the sock yarn in either Viola, Sebastian, Miranda or Caliban would make a great pair of socks for me.

Patience Ann said...

Um, so, yeah. I REALLY need this yarn. A jackalope is my patronus. ::Harry Potter dork::
The Taiga 1 sock yarn has completely blown me away. Wow. That's magnificent!

jessecreations said...

Oh, I LOVE her Milky Way colorway!

Jess

Amybel said...

My favorite would have to be the Culantro. Perfect combo of wieght and colors. Those greens are to die (or should I say dye) for!

knityogini said...

The blue delphinium...beautiful!

MissMoosey on Ravelry said...

I think that Saltbox is my favorite colorway--it is so neat and subtle!

saskia said...

emwall24 said...

I'm loving that "Saltbox 3" colorway...sooo pretty.

djinnj said...

Oh hey! I just made more of that colorway last week! I have to take pictures of everything so I can list them, but the shop will be seeing new items soon. Thanks, Jessie!

Melissa F. in CA said...

Everything is sooooo pretty! The 'Orange Sherbet' colorway reminds me of the California Poppies which will soon be in bloom again. One of my favorite times of year :) Thank you for offering this contest!

I'm loving the Hand dyed sock superwash wool/silk/nylon/silver - 100g - 415yds - Bright Star 1! Several of the arctic hare line are calling to me, in fact!

Hand dyed sock superwash merino - 170g - 600yds - Shell Blue 2 (it's always difficult to choose, so many wonderful colorways!)

Kristen said...

I love the Hand dyed sock superwash wool/silk/nylon/silver - 100g - 415yds - Piccadilly 2.

Gemma said...

I am just blown away by the intensity and originality of her colorways. The reds are stunning (any Red Desert, Happy New Year, or Fire Nation, for example), and the blues so intense. And the Jackalope is really different and luscious. Thanks for the rec!

dori said...

The Mojito, Sunken Treasure, and Caliban, for starters, are making my fingers twitch - and i'm overwhelmed with WIPs at the moment already, lol - but i'd happily frog my current sock in progress to have a go with this stuff. On, and also YUM - Granita, Lemon Criollo, Taiga 2, and Greengage - such creative names for such beautiful colors!

Ed said...

I would search for Sunken Treasure in the depths of the Milky Way...and there is something about Caliban that reminds me of part of my childhood that I can't believe I'd forgotten.

More yarn to covet than patterns to match, but that always seems to be the case!

Kelli said...

I love Fire Nation. It's so bold.

Missy said...

So pretty ! I also love the Berry Pie , Long purples and Red Desert !

Rachel O said...

I love the intensity of Delphinium 1. Just beautiful. And especially love the color of the prize.

Carla said...

Oh me, me, me please.

My favorite is
Hand dyed sock superwash merino - 170g - 600yds - Fire Nation 1

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

Red Desert, Miranda, Taiga, Winter Forest, Ginger Nut... I feel like a kid in a candy shop with just one nickel. What a talented dyer!

Cozy Knitting said...

How does one chose a favorite? My, gosh, the colors are gorgeous. I love the blues. I don't have a lot of blue in my sock drawer.

EJ said...

Too many lovely ones - I want them all! Sacre Bleu 1 is especially beautiful

Elaine said...

My pick is Fire Nation colorway. So cheerful.

PenelopeRose said...

My favorite is the giveaway yarn! And,Confetti 1 is an awfully close runner up. Great shop!

InJuneau said...

I am in love with all of her Taiga yarns.

Fire Nation is amazing!

knitting fool said...

Very difficult choice. So many beauties to choose from. I'm going with Shell Blue 2

Ann Ryan said...

Oooo, I love the Mad Scientist Stripe!

purple said...

I'll go with Hand dyed sock superwash merino - 170g - 600yds - Sea Lavender 1 as my fav but honestly there are many I would love especially the PRIZE!

Sylvia said...

Sacre Bleu 1 is really amazingly wonderful.

Susan said...

Oh wow! All these color combinations are great! What a great job with the hand dyeing! Dutch Iris, Bubble Tea, and Blackout are my favorites here.

Kat said...

Wow! There are some beautiful hand dyed yarns here. Winter Forest is a dreamy color and Milky Way is very mysterious.
I like the selection of yarns that are available. The Artic Hare line with the silver fibers is most intriguing.

Kim R. said...

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

Adore all the different fiber types and colors you have available. I think my favorite is the Avenger Colorway, Love the blue mixes right now!

Ruhammie said...

Oh wow! There are some yummy colors in her shop. I think I'll have to favor Taiga and Greengage. ramie_simpson at hotmail dot com

Cindy said...

The Delphinium 1 colorway was lovely!

A Rose said...

Oh, that's easy, Artic Hare, Bright Star colorway. I love the way the yarns are painted.

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

Jackrabbit in the color Mojito! I added it to my favorites the first time I saw it - and I've looked at it several times without changing my mind. I also love Culantro, Taiga, Winter Forest, Sea Glass ... but Mojito is today's definite top-of-my-list yarn.

Quilting Pansy said...

I love the Viola, the Long Purples, and I love the "Sunday Dreaming"

Amy said...

I loved the colors in Big Top 1...so yummy.

xrystabelle said...

Thanks for introducing me to a new shop! I love the Arctic Hare collection, but especially the Bright Star colorway. A predawn sky filled with stars.

Galia Lael said...

I love the sock yarn in general, and the Red Desert series in particular. Great warm colorways!

galia.lael(at)gmail(dot)com

Caitlin said...

Oh my goodness. i agree with others, it is dang hard to choose!

If i had to pick, i love Sebastian and Wine 1.. I think Sebastian would make a lovely shawl and Wine would make a gorgeous pair of socks!

Turtle said...

love the milky way colorway!

brownbear said...

What lovely color combinations. I love the orsino, sebastian, and orchid colorways.

heather said...

Every time I visit this shop I fall in love with something different. This time it is the superwash merino sock yarn Nebula I can just see the socks now.

Renee J said...

Hand dyed sock yarn in Fire Nation! Love it!

Sue said...

OMG, so may beautiful colors. Scoop Shop2, Miranda 1+2, Caliban 1,2+3, and Beachcomber were so soothing but I also love the many bright firey colors.
Sue

Sam said...

I LOVE the Arctic Hare yarn. I'm not usually one for sparkly things, but there's something about a subtle sheen or shine in yarn that gets me. :)

Chantel said...

I think my fave is Sunken Treasure, but I must say there are just a ton of beautiful colors! I don't think you could go wrong with any of them.

Max. H said...

Gorgeous hand dyes! My favorite is Coriolanus 2, it's so subtle, understated & beautiful! The twist on your yarn looks amazing as well.

wenchamok said...

I love the Sunny, Dutch Iris, Orsino, Fun Fair and Culantro colorways!

Jen

KellieBelle said...

I love the fire nation and Happy New Year colorways!

Heidi B said...

Colors, oh the colors!!! I want them all!!!1

Jags said...

Gorgeous and beautifully subtle

You have way too many pretty colors, it is so hard to pick a favorite!

I think the Taiga 1 sock yarn it my favorite today, it is such an unusual combination

Dorothy said...

kates said...

Wow, all the yarns are looking quite lovely! While "Big Top" looks like a *lot* of fun in one skein, my personal favorites are the New Year red/oranges. Wish one of these lovely creations was mine! ;)

eclecticitee said...

Oh, my, sensory overload! So many lovely yarns! Love the Jackrabbit in the Sebastian and Nebula colourways, I'm fascinated how the latter would knit up. The March Hare in Culantro is just stunning. But my favourite has to be the Arctic Hare, choosing between Bright Star, Wine or Caliban is simply impossible!
Thanks for the link

Nightphoenix said...

Beautiful hand dyed yarn! If I had to pick one, I'd have to choose the fingering weight Ice Rink. Subtle colors are gorgeous.

Zee said...

Have seen many colorways, but this is by far my fave. I've tried my hand at the blend, but have missed. This skein is perfection.

knittingvee said...

I loved orsino, sunny and sunken treasure. I am lucky enough to have bought from Dale before. She is really kind and obviously very talented. I have 5-6 skeins of her yarns and will definily be buying from her in the future

One Sheep said...

What a wonderful ship. I love the Red Desert colorway, and Jackalope is just way too cool.

Petra said...

It's really hard to pick just one ... I guess I would go with Beachcomber. But ask me an hour later and I'll choose something else. Taiga, maybe? And I could go on until there is nothing left in the shop:-)
Wonderful yarns!

DG said...

Agree that it's really hard to pick just one. But I'd go with the Artic Hare in Bright Star. Also just posted it to Facebook!

Rachel O said...

I really really love the prize. The other yarns are beautiful, but the prize is my favorite of all. And my birthday is next week so please pick me!

Kate said...

I have never seen such beautifully handpainted yarn. Just stunning. The 'Dutch Iris 2' is amazing, look at the dye job!!! Scrummy :-).

EVA SB said...

Both Confetti and Wine are absolutely gorgeous.

Kenlynn said...

RoamingKnitter said...

The Jackalope Big Top1 is such an attention-grabber but I did manage to tear myself away to look at all the other gorgeous yarns. Beautiful eye candy, now I want to touch.

dixiemaiden said...
