Congratulations! Please contact me at email@example.com to collect your prizes.
I have for you a giveaway that I would like to enter to win! A very talented indie dyer joins us today, Goddess Knits, who creates beautiful yarns by the name of Decadently Divine. Honestly, how can you not like a yarn called Decadently Divine?! And, let me add that the giveaway yarn that I have in my hot little hands right now is definitely divine and decadent. Renee of Goddess Knits was kind enough to send us two skeins of wonderful sock yarn: a skein of Moonlight Sock that has a touch of sparkle (5% stellina), and a skein of Decadent Sock that's the most gorgeous color called Red Plum.
Let me show you what these gorgeous skeins of sock yarn look like first...
Since I don't have a pattern sponsor for you this time (sorry), I've decided to share with you several FREE patterns that I think would be a perfect match for these lovely skeins:
Multnomah by Kate Elsa: This shawl has been in my favorites for a long time now. How beautiful would it be knit out of either of the skeins?!
Leaf on the Wind by Purrlescent - For those of you sock knitters out there! The Moonlight Sock with the stellina strands would be a match made in heaven for this pattern.
Spatterdash Wristwarmers by Dagmar Mora: These are just awesome on so many levels! Either of these fantastics skeins of yarn would work for a pair.
Little House Shawl by Joanna Johnson: I realize that this small shawl is pictured on a child, but I think it would work as a shawlette for an adult. Darling!
Cubist Socks by Cookie A: Cookie's just a sock genius! Enough said.
Undine by Christine Ebers: How did I not know about this shawl pattern until now?! Love it!
Little Things by Veera Valimaki: And, a really great hat pattern by Veera that I'm totally going to queue! Maybe I'll add a little bit of length for more of slouch. Hmmmmm...
Hope you enjoy the yarn sponsor and the collection of free patterns for fingering weight that I've compiled. Two followers have the opportunity to win a skein of Decadently Divine sock yarn! Thank you, Renee, for sharing your lovely yarn with us!
I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:
1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.

I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.
