Shades of Light Yarn Giveaway


If you haven't joined our other giveaways of this round, be sure to come back after you finish entering this one.

This is our last giveaway of this round, and it's from Shades of Light. She sent us this gorgeous 50/50 Wool/Silk yarn that can be knit with US size 2.5-6 knitting needles. This yarn practically glows with it's deep rich magenta color. I pass it in the studio, and I can't help but notice it and touch it. It's super soft and the sheen from the silk sparkles in the light. This is the perfect weight yarn for your next project!


How do I win?! Sign in on the giveaway site above. You'll be given several options to gain entries to the giveaway. The first, and only mandatory entry, is that you will go to Shades of Light find something you love then come back here and comment about it.

You can gain an additional entry for each of the following: "hearting" the Shades of Light Etsy Store, tweeting about the giveaway, or pinning a photo of the roving on Pinterest.

You will earn three additional entries for making a purchase in the Shades of Light Etsy Store and sharing the transaction ID.

We have seven giveaways from our February contributors (I counted wrong before), be sure to enter all of them! Thank you for supporting our independent artists.

DH Jax said...

My two favorites are probably the blue faced lanceister top, santorini and the hand dyed Marino top dragon.... But as much as I love those colors for myself this pretty bright yarn would be wonderful for my step daughter, she would LOVE something made from it. Thanks for the chance to win, wish I'd discovered the site sooner for the other contests.
