wow, I'm first?

topaz, ocean, chocolate & buttercream are my faves....

Knitschmidt said...

Salt spray...it's gorgeous! I love Artichoke too, but it's the type of color combo I'm always drawn to and have sooooo much of!

mommieof4munchkins said...

Very pretty! I love Aurora but Artichoke is a close second!

miraling said...

Ooooh, these colors and the shine just float my boat! I'm going to have to go with "Red Fox" but wow! Any would be amazing.

Natalie Servant said...

Ooh, Swiss Mountain Sea Sock. I love it! And since I've already bought various Handmaiden products in many of the colours there, I'd like to try something new: Ultraviolet, or Salt spray. Or chocolate. Oh, they're all lovely.

marianne said...

I think Moss is my favorite!
thanks for this giveaway!

livin4fishin said...

Sangria and ultraviolet and if I had to, I could pick lots more. There really isn't a color I don't like.

K said...

All the colors are beautiful! I think I'd have to choose the hemlock...the blues and greens are lovely.

Marlitharn said...

Holy cow, how do you choose just one? Hmmm...I'd say Forest Fairie is my favorite, but Chocolate and Aurora are right up there with it!

tahli said...

They are all beautiful but i think cedar and sangria are my favourites.

Alex said...

I clicked the link to look at the colors, and BAM! Amethyst was right there. It was fated to be my favorite. Gorgeous!

Jenny (renewedmind) said...

Wow! How gorgeous! Let's see, I love the Stardust and Aurora, but the Orchid and Moss are beautiful also. Can only imagine how great this yarn feels!!

I love the richness of chocolate.

Amy said...

I love both the wine and sangria colorways.

scottishbunny2003 said...

What a giveaway this week! The clour schemes are all stunning, but Caicos is my favourite. I've just found out my November baby is going to be a boy, so my eye is drawn to gorgeous blues at the moment - the thought of knitting his coming home hat, mitts and bootees out of that gorgeous yarn is a dream!

Kristina said...

Aurora, but I have so many follow ups! I really like the Forest Fairie, Masala, and Morgana. They're all so beautiful!

Rachel said...

I would love, love, LOVE a skein in the Orchid colorway. I've admired the Handmaiden yarn for awhile now, just haven't had the courage to purchase a skein yet.

Elizabeth said...

Gorgeous colors! It's hard to choose my favorite. But if I have to pick... the lily pond. or the amethyst. no, the ocean! (= Okay, the lily pond. definitely. Thanks for the chance to win!

mountainweaver said...

What a difficult decision! All the colors are just beautiful! Right this minute, hemlock is my favorite...but then there is artichoke, or forest faire, or red fox....Thanks so much for the give-away.

jessecreations said...

Ooh, I love Fairie!

Jess

Tricia said...

Masala!! But it was so hard to decide! I really liked the artichoke too...

Mmm, the Boreal is gorgeous. I can use more sock yarn like a hole in the head, but I do know someone who could use a pick me up.

Mary LeMaster said...

so beautiful and shiney!! Hard to pick just one!! I love the orchid, forest farie, and sangria!! Yummy

Jenna said...

Oh wow, what a great contest! I love the blue-silver of Salt Spray.

Kathy said...

I would love a skein of peacock. Oh socks make of that would be beautiful.

SusanG said...

THe colors are so pretty hard to choose just one- aurora, and sangria were 2 of my favs- but also loved the peacock! This would be a go ahead and choose 2 moment for me!

Christine said...

I love the color Morgana. I love most of the colors, so it was hard to pick just one. I have always wanted to knit with this yarn and maybe.....will win one???

Kyliie said...

I love the forest fairy! It is soooo pretty!

melissaspata said...

Sangria or hemlock!

Lizbert said...

It was a tough choice for me. But ultimately, I'd have to go with the color Stardust (but Peridot was a close close second).

dragonharrower said...

I love the Moss! It's such a bright vibrant green. :)

aanderson said...

I like them all but Indian Summer would be my first choice.

SmallestTiger said...

I love the Chocolate color! It looks so rich.

Cindy said...

It was hard to choose, but I think Morgana is my favorite. Beautiful yarn!

KD said...

Salt Spray for sure!

Beth said...

Sangria or Buttercream, but all the colors are amazing so it's very hard to choose!

JodyH said...

I love the Masala, but they are all so beautiful!

Stephanie said...

I think I have to enter this giveaway. I've only swatched with the Lady Godiva I won, and it's wonderful, so I would love to try out Super Sock. I love almost all of the colorways, but I think Amethyst would make a wonderful shawl that would coordinate with two dresses that I own. Thanks for another great giveaway, Ve!

TopHat said...

Oh wow. I love the ultraviolet one! I have a crush on purple. :)

Jennifer said...

oh i love sangria and peacock! such gorgeous colors to choose from!

Jodi said...

I love Handmaiden! What a great company, and what beautiful yarns. The Topaz color is calling out my name.

kshotz said...

OMG...that is gorgeous! I really like Forest Fairie....but all of the colors look just beautiful, so winning any color would be a treat!
I've never seen this yarn; is it as scrumptious as it looks?

Tanzi said...

I would absolutely love to make a shawl out of the Sea Salt. It is gorgeous!

Mujercita said...

I've been dying to try Sea Silk, but it's a little out of my price range- I think I'd try the Sea Salt!

Kelly K. said...

I love the Swiss Mountain - it reminds me of a kelp forest in the ocean.

Allison von Berg said...

Oh shiny shiny! Love shiny sock yarn! The Ultraviolet is beautiful---such saturated colors!

knittinwolf said...

Vanessa said...

Definitely, peridot.

Ginny said...

It's so hard to pick!! I would love the forest fairie though. They're all so pretty!

jlr said...

It's a hard call, but I think I'd go with Sangria.

kirika3 said...

Good luck everyone and have a great week!

Jen said...

Indian summer is so pretty!

Tanya said...

I am positively drooling over the cedar colorway. For some reason, this seems to be my "color of the year"

Laura said...

I have been eyeing this yarn at the past several festivals I've been to. It is so gorgeous, I couldn't imagine putting it on my feet! At least, not unless I was putting my feet up and never touching the floor or the inside of a pair of shoes with them. I had a tough time picking a favorite color but Peridot seems to be calling my name.

sarah lewis said...

i just love Caicos! Oh, and Lily Pond. And Parrot. How can I choose just one??

sadiekate on ravelry

Kristy Lorenz said...

I want all of them! But if I had to pick one it would be "Hemlock" or "Sangria"

Stardust and lily pond are my top two. It's hard to pick between the them.

patsy said...

I like the Masala colorway. patsycoats@bellsouth.net

Jean Ashley said...

The colors are all so beautiful, but then again, I'm a sucker for shiny silk! If I had to pick, I'd say (not in order of preference, as I'd like one of each): Aurora, Caicos, Hemlock, Indian Summer, Ocean, Stardust, and Topaz).

Eva said...

I love the caicos color.. and the orchid.. and the ultraviolet.. and.. and.. all of them. I want all of them! And I've had the haruni scarf/shawl thingy favorited on raverly for a few months now. It is absolutely gorgeous.

historychica said...

Amethyst is my favorite, but topaz is a close second. I'd love to knit up my first ever pair of socks with either!

Susanne said...

Aurora - I seem to have the purple, blue and green phase. That would be my favorite choice. Then again, the colors are all so beautiful. Thanks for the opportunity.

shlesss said...

sangria and artichoke are beautiful

MorningMedusa said...

This is a difficult choice, but if I could get my hands around a hank of that it would have to be Indian Summer. It almost looks like it would glow in the moonlight.

Samantha said...

Hands down Aurora. Then Peacock or Hemlock. They're all so pretty!

Jen said...

jendada on Ravelry

angie.smith@q.com

Angele said...

Sangria is my favorite! The colors are so great together! Yum!

Connie said...

Forest Fairie would be my first choice, but all of the colors are wonderful!

Alisa said...

Oh....there are so many pretty ones! I'd say Ocean, Amethyst and that Red Fox is pretty nice too!

Anonymous said...

29ways says - Amethyst is my first thought (because I'm a purple phreak), but I also love Forest Fairie and I think Masala might actually be my favorite!

terip said...

oh i love the peacock color, chocolate is very nice too and salt spray......

Sara said...

What can I say - they are all beautiful...

I think Peacock and Salt Spray are my favorites right this second.

katerina said...

for me it'd be the Amethyst, Chocolate and the Auroras.. so so so so so pretty.. the butter cream and forest faries also keep calling to me.... they're all beautiful!

Theo said...

amethyst or amethyst or maybe amethyst (maybe I will be able to spell it now without looking) I love red fox too because it is so much like amethyst(ha, snuck another one in) C:

thanks for letting me play

Grace said...

Forest Fairie is not only a beautiful color, but such an interesting name. . . I would love to see some in person!

Leesy said...

I dream of topaz. What lovely yarns!

Carle' said...

oh I would have to say Boreal. This is not a typical colour for me, but it looks so yummy.

Anett Kiefer said...

It's hard to make a choice - all the colours look great. But my favourite is Boreal.

indy said...

Ocean! What a beautiful color!

Heather said...

I'm loving all of them, but I'd have to say my favorite is Indian Summer.

But Chocolate, Stardust, Aurora, and Boreal come in close seconds. I really think it would depend on my mood.

Emily said...

I love Forest Fairie!!

Cheryl said...

I really like cedar..Artichoke is another fave.

Sarah Beth said...

luvin2knit said...

Gorgeous - caicos is my favorite!

Diane Neufeld said...

I love the Caicos. The bluey green tones make me feel like I'm in Vancouver, on the west coast of Canada, oceans and forests. Just beautiful!

The Amethyst is stunning, and I love the forest fairie. But to pick only one, it would have to be the Caicos.

Jennifer said...

anything by handmaiden is divine,
my favs are peacock and amethyst!

EvilSquirrel said...

Oh please please Forest fairy or Caicos!

by far both are my to die for faves!!

EvilSquirrel on Rav!

Emily said...

All of the yarn colors are beautiful! I think that the chocolate is my favorite. It's almost bronze and so rich!

Timmie's Mommy said...

You're amazing for doing this! My favorite would have to be either Hemlock or Orchid. Good Luck to all!

Jan L said...

Oh, my gosh! What to choose? What to choose? Well, my final answer is-
Hemlock. Looks like it came from the sea.

Barbara said...

Oooh, Morgana is awesome. I also like forest fairie and hemlock. Wonderful colors!!!!

Susan Nelson said...

I love this yarn...its makes wonderful shawls...artichoke and orchid are the bomb

Robin said...

I think it would be easier to tell you which colors I don't love! Wow! Trying to control myself, I will list my top four at this moment: Aurora, Boreal, Topaz, Salt Spray... I could easily go on (forest fairie, chocolate, peridot, cedar, moss, amethyst... etc). Really beautiful.

mhrycauk said...

I love hemlock. I have yet to use this yarn but it's on my bucket list :-)
