Shades of Light silk yarn giveaway!

Looking at this yarn is like gazing out over the turquoise blue waters of Greece- where it was dyed! Shades of Light is based in Greece, but offers very reasonable and prompt shipping and prices to their global customers. This 50/50 silk and wool yarn gives me goosebumps (and it's not because it's 4 degrees here now!)

Now, I know I'm asking a lot here. But, if you would visit Shades of Light and find something that you really love and post it back over here in the comments area you will be automatically entered in the drawing for this gorgeous yarn. Extra entries for social network sharing!!

I like the dark forest.
I have used Shades of Light before and it is very hard wearing yet soft yarn.

It is so grey outside. The yellow and orange sock yarns appeal to me.

ingrid said...

Wow, such vibrant colors! I'm really drawn to the handdyed mumbai colorway even though it's not my normal color palette. I think that's exactly why I like it. And socks in the color? Let me at that yarn! Then when I clicked on the drop-down menu, I had EIGHT choices. I think I'll be buying some of this yarn very soon, to help keep the winter blahs away.
