Serendipitous Ewe Chance Sock Giveaway!



Recently, I made a shawl using Serendipitous Ewe Fate Fingering in Angela's "Estuary" colorway and I have gotten the most compliments on it than anything else I've knit thus far! I'm convinced it is the yarn and not my astounding knitting skills though! When Angela sent samples in of that yarn in December, I knew I must have it!

It's pretty easy to order a custom colorway from Serendipitous Ewe, I went to the website, clicked on the custom dyed yarn button and processed my order. I was contacted by Angela and made arrangements for yarn to be dyed and before I knew it, I was taking pictures of my lovely shawl. Angela processed my order as soon as she could, despite dealing with "snowmageddon".

Custom colors are great, but so are what Serendipitous Ewe has to offer on site!
Today we're giving away a beautiful skein of Chance Sock in "Jungle" which is a subtle striping fingering weight yarn. Please visit Serendipitous Ewe, find something that catches your eye, then report back to us here on the blog. We'll be drawing for winners tomorrow, so please hurry! Make sure you use twitter, facebook, your blog and ravelry to get extra entries- help us spread the Serendipitous Ewe word!

The Pomegranite color in Sport Weight would make a lovely sweater (Tappan Zee) from the latest Knitty!

I can see how the Galaxy colorway on a sock yarn can become a beautiful shawl!

TinkerTots said...

For some reason I'm really loving "Flock" this morning. The colors just make me happy.

I am really loving Crimson Sunrise.

I really like the Dart Frog colorway, partly because the color is great but mostly because of the name! So hard to choose which one, I had to figure out some way to pick LOL

Blue Footed Booby! I'd take that in sock yarn and knit up some Skew. Giggling all the while, because apparently I'm 5.

I'm pretty much in love with all of the Kettle Transitions...but Bird of Paradise is definitely my fave! It's so colourful!!!

So many gorgeous colorways, it is hard to choose. I will go for Bodega...but there were at least a half a dozen equally intriguing colorways.

Carla said...

Love the water lily yarn.

knitting fool said...

I think the jewels self striping is my favorite.

Those are lovely! Just looking, I think I might want to try the Jewels self-striping. Haven't done a self-striping sock before, and I think I'd like it. Perhaps the Dart Frog subtle striping as well.

Gorgeous stuff!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

Today I'm in a Kettle Transitions mood. My base yarn choice would be Chance Sock Yarn and the Coral Reef colorway is exactly what I need right now.

Aurora Borealis and the Pomegranite and Strawberry Fields are all gorgeous! I can see lightweight shawls for summer made from soft sock yarn! Nebula, Coral Reef, Bird of Paradise, Raspberry Parfait....I love them all! So colorful!

I would like to see how the hydrangea self striping yarn knits up. I have bought some Purple Passion hydrangeas to plant this year. My mother has several hydrangeas including the lace hydrangeas already planted.

Love the Flock yarn in the Winter/spring colors.

tom said...

I love the subtlety of Hydrangea

I want the Lucky Sock yarn in the Plum colorway. The bamboo/wool combination should feel wonderful.

Crimson Sunrise or Pumpkin Pie (or Estuary....)-- I love most of their solid or semi-solid colors. Beautiful! And what a variety of weights and bases. Looks like a great shop!

ikkinlala said...

I love the Robin's Egg colour (especially for the sock yarns).

I love the Dart Frog colorway, and would select the Lucky Sock Yarn. I can just see how a pair of socks in this yarn would have me hopping for joy. Get it, hopping - frog? Ok, I'll shut up now and wait for my prize. Thanks again for your undending generosity, and that of your contributors.

All of the Stained glass semi solids are just beautiful. In particular I love the evergreen, pumpkin pie (mmm...pumpkin pie), and sky colorways. I am sock crazy and all would look awesome as socks.
