Shades of Light Minis Giveaway!





How would you like to play with this pile of minis from Shades of Light? I know I would! I just love this yarn! The colors are so saturated, and it's a nice sturdier sock yarn that seems like it would last on a knitted heel.

Color! I feel like this is one of my "happy places" on the internet. Feeling a little down? Visit the Shades of Light shop and bask in the luminous rainbow that is hers shop! Shades of Light has got it going on!!

To enter this giveaway, please visit Shades of Light today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll count social networking like pinterest, facebook, twitter, plurk, etc as extra entries! Just let us know you did it.

So many colors! If I had to chose one listing, I'd pick the blue-to-brown mini skein listing. It's a great color combo, and makes me think of the beach.

I really like the brightness of handdyed sockyarn superwash - wool/nylon mixture - sports weight - colour 62.

Siannan MacDuff said...

Color 18 in the sport weight. I know socks made from that would wake me up on a cold morning!

Also my captcha says "prodsock". This amuses me greatly. :)

Katie/MrsN2itiv said...

It's hard to pick just one but I think I was able to pick the one I want first. I love the Paris colour 39d and the mini skein sets.

Color 62 is especially pretty to me this morning... but I just love all the mini skeins!

Lindr said...

I love Angelika's colors! And her photos are so vibrant. Lately I've been really attracted to gray, so I'm going to choose the wool/silk/bamboo fingering weight in Midnight Lady. I really like the dash of blue; it's plays really nicely with the gray.

Deborah said...

The set of 5 mini skeins in purple and pinks...mmmm...yummy colors. Now to head to Ravelry to see what I can do with those.

Marilyn a.k.a. Merry said...

What's not to love? It's all gorgeous but I like color 15 (pink, purple, orange and yellow) under the sock yarn best. Happy colors indeed!

Amber Zimbelman said...

Gotta love the sport 50/50 wool/silk in that lovely purple, 239. Then again, I've got a young daughter with a lust for purple!

Love your incredible colours - they are so wonderfully intense in a way that so many just aren't! Lovely to see so many fantastic yellows too (they're my husband's favourites and so difficult to get hold of). For me, my pic would have to be your hand-dyed Alpaca yarn in colour 17. Heavenly!
