As I posted on Boxing Day, I have reached my one year blogiversary. What better way to celebrate than by having a giveaway!
This is my first giveaway on the blog, and I am very excited about it. I hope you are too!
I've mentioned several times on this blog, that pretty much the first crafting blog I found when I started looking was Tami's Amis and Other Creations. Not only did she inspire me to set up Master of a Thousand Things, but her weekly link parties on Wednesdays and Fridays led me to other amazing blogs, and brought me many of my regular readers.
Back in May, Tami opened up Candy Skein, selling her amazing hand dyed yarns. Ever since the shop opened, I have been dying to get my hands on some of her yarn. The colourways she devises are absolutely divine, and I just love the names she gives them. Every project I've seen using her yarn has looked brilliant, and I've only ever read rave reviews. However, it always seemed ridiculous to me to order yarn from the US, when I have so many sources of great indie dyed yarn here in the UK.
I decided to treat myself with some of my Christmas money, and will soon be ordering some Candy Skein yarn of my own. And this, dear reader, is where the giveaway comes in!
Tami has very kindly agreed to help me coordinate the prize for my giveaway. Yes, you've guessed it, the prize I am offering is a skein of Candy Skein Yummy in lace or fingering weight. Even better than that, the winner gets to choose the colour!

So here's the juicy details. Yummy is Tami's range of 100% Merino wool (fingering weight is 75% merino 25% nylon). In the lace weight, you get 880 yards in a 100g skein, the fingering weight is 465 yards.
Tami's full range of colourways can be seen here.
To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment on this post stating which weight and colour you would choose if you were the winner.
The contest is open to everyone! I know my readership is pretty much evenly split between the US/Canada and the UK. If you could please let me know in your comment which side of the world you are on, that would be really helpful.
The giveaway will close at midnight (GMT) on Sunday 15th January 2012 and I will randomly select a winner and announce it on Monday 16th January.
Please feel free to blog/tweet about my giveaway, but I'm not giving anyone extra entries for doing so.
