TA-DA! Tuesday Handmade Giveaway!

TA-DA!

Tuesday Handmade Giveaway


This week's handmade giveaway is a single skein of Malabrigo Sock Yarn in the colorway Light of Love which I have overdyed with red, orange, purple and garnet for a rich variegated yarn. 

I purchased this yarn during the 2012 local YarnQuest hosted by several yarn shops throughout Michigan. I originally thought I only had one skein of this yarn, but I actually had 2 skeins in my stash. 

During a trip to my LYS A Grand Skein on July 3rd, I happened to see a sample knit of the Rondelay shawl by Jennifer Dassau on display and once I read that it took a single skein of Malabrigo Sock and was created using short rows (one of my favorite techniques) I just knew I had to knit one. 

The next step was to dig up my skiens of Malabrigo Sock. The original color Light of Love which is a kettle dyed pink just didn't seem to be the right choice for this project. 

 I had read in the pattern that the Rondelay was the perfect knit to show off hand dyed and variegated yarns. So the obvious option was to overdye the skein. I am super delighted with the final results.
While at A Grand Skein that day picking up needles for another project the shop purchased the Rondelay pattern thru Ravelry on my behalf and I purchased a pair of US 6 40" ChaioGoo Knit Red Lace needles for the project. 

It wasn't until I returned home later that day that I realized that not only did I have 2 skeins of Malabrigo Sock, but I also already had a pair of US 6 40" ChaioGoo needles in my stash. 

So this week one winner will receive a single skein of Light of Love overdyed Malabrigo Sock yarn as well as a pair of US 6 40" Knit Red Lace ChaioGoo circular needles.
