Light Brown Hare Yarn Giveaway!

 I am finding it difficult to try to find the words to express how special I think this Light Brown Hare giveaway is. Firstly, it's sock yarn, and everyone needs it. Secondly, it's really really good yarn- LOVE, love this jackrabbit base. Thirdly, it's 6 freaking ounces!! SIX! Fourthly, look at the color- wow! Just. Wow. It's called Crispin's Day and I really really love it!

Ok, I may have used up my exclamation point quota for this blogpost, so I'll try to calm down and tell you about all the other awesomeness that awaits you in the Light Brown Hare shop. Four pages of immersion dyed yarny gorgeousness, that's what! (oops).

Please visit Light Brown Hare today, find something you love, and come back and write about it below. We'll be drawing for a winner later in the week, so be sure and use facebook, twitter, plurk, pinterest or another social network of your choosing to gain extra entries!

Ooh, this would be such lovely socks for my husband (who's been seriously jonesing for some!)... but the yarn I'd get for myself is the Jackrabbit Silver Birch - palest yellows and greens. I'd make gloves for myself for the winter!

I'm also intrigued by the silksheep fiber - what an interesting breed!

yarnmagic on Ravelry said...

On several occasions I have been totally unable to resist the Jackrabbit 6oz skeins. The base, the amount ... and then the colors that Light Brown Hare presents ... very tough on my will power!
A big temptation now is the Jackrabbit 6oz in Key Lime.
When I start looking at the other yarns, I'm drawn to the kid mohair and merino lace yarn, especially the Babylon colorway.

Jen said...

Liked you on FB. Retweeted. You should put a Pin It button on the blog so I can pin from my phone ;o) I'll try to remember to pin it when I get home tonite & get on the computer. ;o)

My two favourites from her shop are the Orsino 2 and Silver Birch on the Jackrabbit base. But what I like best are her Phat Fiber samples---I love the small samples of her other fiber bases that accompany her official sample. They give me a very good idea of what her bases are like!
