A custom colorway for the GLYC

One of our most recent yarn prize sponsors is the lovely Tanja, the dyer behind The Knitting Swede.

Tanja grew up in Sweden, but has been living in the UK since 1996. She dyes beautiful tonal semi-solids, bright variegated blends and fantastic gradients that slide gently from one color to the next. At the moment, most of the yarns in her shop are BFL, one of my all time favorite fibers. 

When Tanja responded to our initial email, she let slip that she had been inspired to dye up a special colorway just for the GLYC - she's offering up this skein as a door prize.
 In addition to this gorgeous skein of yarn, she is also donating a copy of her gorgeous shawl pattern, Rubies and Steel.

The GLYC colorway would be perfect for the accent color in this shawl, right?

Many thanks to Tanja for her generosity - she's said she might be able to join us at the after party on Saturday at The Mulberry Bush, and you'll be able to talk to her about her gorgeous yarns in person.
