What an adorable sweater and model. My granddaughter was born 7/4/2010 and I would love to be able to present her with a version.
Hawaii knitting should include bamboo and blues. Maybe a skirt or shorts set for a young lady

marianne said...

I don't know if you watched Lost, but if I were going on a trip to Hawaii, I'd cast on something Lost-related! :D
thanks for this giveaway!

Jodi said...

Hawaii's so beautiful! Hope you have a wonderful time, with plenty of cocktails and relaxing time on the beach.

I vote for something light and lacy for Hawaii knitting in a bright and cheerful color! Maybe a Traveling Woman shawlette?

TopHat said...

I always cast on socks when I don't know what to do!

That sweater is cute!

CraftyCatrina said...

How about Hawaiian Leis Socks by Adrienne Fong? You could use a juicy, hibiscus-y color like Hazel Knits Strawberry Lemonade or Sweet Crush. Have a wonderful trip!

Kyliie said...

I loveee that yarn and sweater! I would make some minions! (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/minions) Have fun!

sacha said...

I love this yarn and just made my little girl a hoodie with it- would love to be able to use it again! Thank you.

woolandchocolate said...

I am knitting the whirligig shrug for my daughters - I am guessing on the sizing up for my 3, 5, and 10 year olds. It makes great travel knitting, though, because it is small but interesting.

Kristy said...

beautiful sweater! Knitting in Hawaii makes me think of bamboo and silk, maybe a shawl for walking on the beach at sunset.

Kim said...

Hawaii is beautiful. I think a light sweater will do for cool nights.

mommieof4munchkins said...

Oh you know how much I LOVE S&C and I have been eyeing the Chloe sweater and now that it is in my girls sizes I am eyeing it even more!

As for what you should cast on next, I am sticking a box of yarn in the mail to you tomorrow so I would have to say ARM WARMERS! :P

sy said...

i love the little birds sweater http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/little-birds-3
have a fun trip :D

Melissa said...

MMMMMMMMmmmmmm Spud & Chloe! Yummy! I think that WB.'s Jordan would be perfect: linen/silk/hemp = cool knitting, it knits up in a flash and looks great - wait - are we supposed to suggest others' patterns? I hope that's ok...

Dale,Lindsay and Shannon said...

Ohhh! I love Spud & Chloe yarn almost as I loved visiting Hawaii.

kristyh1981 said...

What a lovely pattern and lovely yarn to go with it! You could start some holiday knitting and do some washcloths/dishcloths or something along that line or do some totally selfish knitting (which is probably what I would do) and cast on something just for you!

Jessica said...

How about "Amelie"? Then you can knit socks without giving away your daughter's birthday surprise! (I have a feeling Alana would agree with me on this ;0)

livin4fishin said...

I think for hawaii you should knit something with oranges, yellow and greens in it. Maybe a nice pair of socks. Knit with something that makes you happy!!
Enjoy your trip!

aanderson said...

My grand daughter would love the sweater. I think in Hawaii you should relax and enjoy -- so something very easy to do in tropical colors

Emily said...

Very cute sweater!

Some nice dishclothes might be nice, easy knitting that can turn out pretty but (often) doesn't require too much attention so you can relax on the plane.

Those are pretty giveaway yarns too!

Ginger said...

I would cast on for some fun lacy socks!

Janelle said...

I love the yarn and that sweater is adorable!!! I think you should cast on some lacy socks in a bright and cheerful color for Hawaii. :)

Rachel R. said...

Have a great time in Hawaii! I always make socks when I travel, so that's my suggestion!

All For Love Of Yarn! said...

My daughter turns 3 this Sunday and that would be a fantastic little sweater for her, love the colors of the yarn, too!

Make socks, they are small and not hot to knit with while in Hawaii; have a blast!! ~ Angela

Page said...

Hmm...Hawaii is tough. I'd vote for easy socks with some gorgeous hand dyed yarn. Portable, mellow, and beautiful! Have fun on your trip!

Heather said...

Socks would be perfect for a trip to a hot place! They're my favorite hot weather project.

Nancy said...

I suggest you cast on some socks for your trip to Hawaii. They are small and portable, and easy to work on when you have a little time here and there. And a sock project won't make you hot and sweaty while you're knitting. Have fun!

InJuneau said...

Definitely nothing in wool, as you'd be hot. Maybe a nice cotton or linen sweater or shawl?

Ólöf said...

Love the model, very cute.
Also love spud and cloe yarn!

kirika3 said...

i love that sweater, and it looks like your daughter had a lot of fun in the shoot.

since you are heading to Hawaii, maybe something like the Hibiscus shawl (found it on rav) it looks light and airy, with the state flower on it. i hope you have a lot of fun on your trip. i have always wanted to see hawaii. aloha!

Christine said...

I think you should cast on for a simple lace shawl, knit in a yarn that is not too fine, eg., DK or fingering. For one, you won't have to do any "finishing" on it, unless you knit really fast, and the growing lace and pattern (and diff colors if the yarn is variegated) is fun to watch over time.

Vanessa said...

Socks, with an easily memorized pattern motif. It's too warm, and too beautiful in Hawaii to be able to knit much more than that!

Celeste said...

I would choose something small or light-weight to knit while in Hawaii. Since you'll be knitting socks soon, maybe go for gloves or arm warmers or something else small for the hands.

Phyllis said...

Whatever you make in Hawaii, it should be summery! :-) I don't have any specific suggestions, though.

tahli said...

I am a big fan of Never Not Knitting and am about to start the Spring Garden T. Would love to win the pattern and the yarn - my little girl would look very sweet in those colours.

Wish I was going to Hawaii - I think knitting Alana's spring garden T there would be just perfect.

yardsailor said...

I think the sweater is adorable, would love to knit it for my friends granddaughter. How about a bright blue (Hawaii Blue) Bikini to knit on the trip, you could finish it while you were enjoying the view on the beach.

Elizabeth said...

I love Hawaii! Have a great time! Thinking about a fun portable knitting project.... How about a beach bag? You could knit it up on the plane and then use it when you get there.

PenelopeRose said...

Hawaii, how fun! I'm going to say socks, because that's what I'm into right now. Have a great and safe trip!!

Kelly K. said...

Hawaii makes me think of beaches and beaches make me think of showers. So how about knitting a bath mat? I don't know... I'm not sure I would be knitting at all if I were in Hawaii. LOL.

SovereignCrux said...

Add me for a chance to win.

I think you should cast on something that you can easily work on and not be totally committed to since you will be enjoying your holiday, as well. I think the Fairies and Flowers Scarf (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/fairies-and-flowers-scarf) is absolutely darling and the pattern only just came out. I think it would be a fabulous thing to work on in your leisure hours and with a beautiful end product perfect for summertime wear. Enjoy Hawaii!

Amybel said...

Hawaii!!! Wow. How about knitting a lacy triangle shawl to be used for a beach sarong? But knit it before you go, there's far too much to take in once you're there. Have fun.

Jenny May (renewedmind) on Ravelry) said...

I absolutely LOVE Spud & Chloe! I've never been to Hawaii, but in honor of the S& C giveway, I think you should cast on Susan B. Anderson's Ribbed Socks. It's a wonderful pattern and works up quickly!

Anonymous said...

I'd love to win; I have a baby girl due in December! I knit part of Azzu's shawl and part of Anna's Shoulder Wrap while traveling. Both are easy and enjoyable. Otherwise, I'd pick any pattern that seemed easy enough while on vacation.

Lydia said...

thanks for the chance to win some spud & chloe-have been wanting to try this yarn.

Sara said...

Socks are my favorite traveling item...small - yet they keep me entertained.

Lovely yarn and pattern...

Susan G said...

I love the sweater ann Alana makes a fabulous model as usual. I like to knit socks or mittens while I am traveling - they are just so portable and don't take up much spcae in your suitcase - so there is more room for bring home wonderful souvenirs! Have fun!

BeccaH said...

Socks are excellent for traveling and sitting looking out at the beach! That would be my choice.
This pattern is adorable and I love the yarn colors!

Marcela Macari said...

I love the Chloe sweater! Beatifull
And... for Hawaii... maybe a shawl! (Traveling Woman?)Or, do not knitt, just enjoy Hawaii :)

marcelamacari on ravelry

MamaJoss said...

Ooh just cast-on with the S&C sweater in Grape Jelly for the first time and I'm in love...as am I with your blog! Awesome giveaways :)

Hawaii...wow you lucky gal! I'd probably work on a beach/tote bag because you KNOW you'll be using that! Have an amazing time.

Nicole ~ The Diva said...

I would love to win that great yarn and awesome pattern. I am VERY new to knitting (crocheting all my life), I really don't have any suggestions about what to cast on. BUT ... I can say HI!

Cary said...

What about some kind of swimsuit cover up that you could use while you are there? Have fun!

Julie said...

How about a nice beachy shawl, like Aestlight (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/aestlight-shawl)?

jmoffa@gmail.com

Anonymous said...

I think whatever you decide to cast on should be simple, cool, and colorful. You should be able to enjoy the knitting while savoring the relaxing ... with no compromise to either! Happy vacation to you and thank you both for your generous sharing!

bookboxer on ravelry

Megan said...

I think you should cast on a lace-weight cardigan, something like 'Adrift' or 'Wispy Cardi'. They would both be great to layer with on a cool evening or with a cool ocean breeze.

andrea said...

You should cast on a lightweight (lace?) simple shawl in handpainted aquas, blues and greens. This way you don't have to concentrate on the pattern but you can look out over the aqua blues waters, knit and always have a souvenier of your trip! The colors of the water will forever be etched in your mind.

JodyH said...

The Chloe sweater is so cute! And I love the yarn colors you're giving away.
I think the Summit shawl would be perfect for Hawaii -- it makes me think of ocean waves every time I look at it.

K. said...

Have a great time in Hawaii! I would consider Laura Chau's Hibiscus Shawl in a bamboo or silk blend fingering weight yarn. The silk will give it some sheen. Cookie A.'s Kai-Mei socks always make me think of Hawaii, especially if knit in a fun, bright color. And if you're into colorwork, Erssie Knits has a free hibiscus chart available on Ravelry. You could do a pair of socks with flowers ringing the leg.

Marie-Andrée said...

I love the color of the yarn.
this is a great giveaway.
Enjoy your trip, try to do "nothing"!!!

The Chase Family said...

What a great giveaway! :)

When I think Hawaii, I think light and airy, soft. Something that you can easily put down so you don't miss out on the fun, or that you can work on while enjoying other activities! :)

I would love to get a chance to go back to Hawaii - it's so beautiful! :)

MelissaH :-) said...

You definalty want to cast on something portable or lightweight for a Hawaii project. I am totally jelly:-) Here's some of my fav future WIP's:

Winnow Socks http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEff10/PATTwinnow.php

Brainless Socks by Yarnissima

Campanula Scarf by Anne Hanson

Pine Cone Socks by Anne Hanson
http://www.knitspot.com/knitting_pattern/pine-cones-p-161.html

Happy Knitting:-)

Tracey said...

Ahhh, Hawaii. With three kids under 4, I would love to get away to Hawaii. Who am I kidding? I would love to get away PERIOD! HAHA!
Shawlettes are definitely "in" so if I were you I would knit a lace weight shawl. Have fun!

Jenna said...

I think I would go with something lightweight and easy to remember. Maybe Citron or Traveling Woman. Or socks. I designed some called Octopus' Garden, and while the pictures aren't great, the finished socks are.

Sophia said...

I love those spud and chloe colors! You should cast on simple and easy - maybe a simple sweater like Abolone?

knittinwolf said...

Knitting for Hawaii: Citron shawl, traveling woman shawl, multnomah shawl, centrique shawl...they're nice and small!

Love the Spud & Chloe colors....Alana is a fabulous designer and wonderful person!

Connie said...

Lace. In other words, something in lace for on the plane and for picking up as you are soaking in the sun.

bk said...

Just in case airline security gives you any grief about your knitting: http://www.tsa.gov/travelers/airtravel/assistant/editorial_1252.shtm

I took Malabrigo Twist to Hawaii for a vest but I'm from Seattle and we can knit with wool most of the year. :)

Kristen said...

I'd say a light scarf/shawl for Hawaii knitting... perhaps Haruni?

Pipp said...

I would take my Yarntini silk cashmere self striping yarn in the LOST numbers colorway with me and knit a pair of luxurious socks.
For whatever you pick, I'd keep it simple and mindless using a luxuriously textured yarn. When yarn is to die for, you don't ned to be complicated.
Enjoy your trip:)

Frenzy23 said...

Lovely sweater!

I suggest knitting some little flowers (like these: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/tiny-hibiscus-flower) and stringing them into a necklace!

Mary LeMaster said...

The swaeter is just so lovely!!

ericaberry2001 said...

Great sweater! Love the colors, a lot.

For Hawaii, I'd suggest socks. When I went to Hawaii a couple years ago, I took all kinds of knitting in anticipation of lots of beach knitting time. For the first time, in a long time, I didn't knit for the entire week.

Elise said...

This sweater is adorable! I have been wanting to get my hands on some Spuds & chloe

Marlitharn said...

Something either turquoise or fuchsia, and light. Maybe a shrug out of bamboo or cotton or linen. Have fun!

Erron Rose said...

I've always thought socks would make the best trip projects. Definitely something colorful though.

I love the sweater! It's adorable. Especially the buttons. :]

Sarah said...

I just knit the Traveling Woman shawl while on a short trip, and it was really fun travel knitting, and also a great finished piece!

Erin B said...

Have a lovely trip. Something easy is what I'd recommend. You don't want to be stressing about YO's and other freaky things in paradise.

Christen said...

Maybe knit up a bathing suit cover-up for your trip...

emxlenie said...

the twins i babysit would LOVE that sweater. one for each of course :] i think you should knit up some sea creatures from amigurumi knits. the jelly fish is SO much fun. :] and spud & chloe =love

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I don't what I would cast on for but I would use bright colors . I think of wild bright colors when I think of Hawaii.

kat said...

You want something simple and non-stressful for a vacation! Perhaps a Citron shawl? quick and easy, and simple enough where you're not going to get too distracted!

Kristin said...

3 of my favorites all in one place!! How awesome is that??

I nominate the just enough ruffles scarf / wrap. It's beautiful!

kristinfitzgerald on Ravelry

Silvina said...

I definitely would cast on a lacy cover up in cotton... Have fun!!!

Silvinasi on Ravelry

Heather said...

I really enjoy the never not knitting podcast. I'd go with something out of silk or bamboo for the vacation knitting.

Andrea said...

The last time I was in Hawaii I wasn't knitting so I'm not quite sure what will be a good project. But maybe lace?

Iva said...

Oooh, a trip to Hawaii. Any way you could fit a stowaway into your knitting bag?

Have a great time!

luvin2knit said...

I'd cast on a spring garden tee. . .

Jessy said...

Well, as far as Hawaii goes, I hope you enjoy yourself there and find that you don't have too much time to knit because you're having too much fun! I would choose something that is fairly mindless to do so that you can relax. Maybe some nice lacy pattern that is easy to memorize?

papervolcano said...

Oh, you're so lucky - I went to Hawaii earlier this year, and absolutely adored it.

When I went, I took some crochet with me, rather than knitting - travel times were about 26 hours door to door each way, and couldn't bear the thought of that with nothing to occupy my hands, especially as you can't take knitting needles in your carryon (at least flying to/from the UK...)

I did http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chevron-lace-cardigan - first major crochet project, and I was halfway done by the time we landed - though if you can take knitting needles on US domestic flights, all the better!

I'd definitely reccomend something lacey and easy enough to memorise - either a cardigan or wrap in beautiful bright hibiscus shades and a light silky/bamboo type yarn - great for a late night stroll along the beach, or warming you up when you get back. I love the border on Haruni, but I don't know that I'd be brave enough to tackle it on holiday!

jessecreations said...

I'm knitting the Laodice shawl right now, and I highly recommend it. It's customizable for any weight or length of yarn, easy enough for beach knitting but interesting enough that it isn't boring. Plus the shape is really unique and it looks great in variegated or solid colors.

Jess
jessicacook17@hotmail.com

jlr said...

I'm another one of those sock folks. When in doubt, cast on for socks.

I love Alana's patterns - I just made two Cedar Leaf Shawlettes, and I would love to make another project she designed!

beartifix said...

How about Blue Hawaii Socks by Corrina Ferguson? http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/blue-hawaii-socks

terip said...

what a cute sweater! i suggest socks of course, but which ones? hmmm of course we all pack way more than we coudl every knit.....
but you don't want anything too big to tote around!

Sarah Beth said...

A trip to Hawaii? How Fun! What about the dream catcher baby blanket by Susan B. Anderson? It uses Spud & Chloe yarn, not too bulky to work on in pieces and only one set of needles. I am hoping for a baby in the family soon to make it for.

Sursi said...

I would knit something bright and light. Maybe some colorful intarsia flowers on a cute tank.

Melissa said...

If it were me going to Hawaii, I would knit a bikini to lay out in or a lace cover-up.

purlverde said...

Hawaii sounds amazing right now! I also think something light, airy, and bright would be in order! I could see a Traveling Woman shawl glowing in the sunrise...ooh, a Hawaiian sunrise... or Azzu's Shawl in a bright color with a sundress for a fun night with cocktails and a beautiful sunset.

Jen said...

Cute sweater and another awesome giveaway!! Hi to both you and Alana. I read both blogs regularly. I'm very jealous of your trip to Hawaii!! Definitely cast on for a nice little lightweight shawlette with a little silk or bamboo in a fresh tropical color! Have fun!

Jendada on Ravelry

Bonnie said...

I love the pattern and could see a special little girl in it. Miss Lilli is such a cutie and looks adorable in these kinds of outfits. Maybe you could do some kind of stole in bamboo and big needles so you get to wear it in Hawaii

Jennifer said...

Love your giveaways and LOVE Spud&Chloe!

Tricia said...

Oooooo I love spud and chloe! and the chloe sweater! and Alana! :) Good week!

As for knitting in Hawaii, I think something light, maybe socks? b/c you don't want to be hot when you're knitting, right?

thanks for another great opportunity!

Catherine said...

I love those Chloe colors - they remind me of sherbet. Or shave ice, since you're going to Hawaii.

sherry said...

When I travel I only want to take projects with one ball of yarn , usually sock, mitten or glove knitting. There are also some wonderful shawls made with one ball of yarn -Coquille Shawl would be a great travel size.
Hope you have a wonderful trip!

Anett Kiefer said...

The sweater looks fantastic, wonderful colours.

I would knit a nice shawl or shawlette.

Wooly Knits n Bits said...

Alana's pattern are the cutest. I would knit that little sweater this minute for our grand daughter.

Noni at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Just saying hi and I love your blog.

Julia said...

Very cute pattern. It would look adorable on my 2 year old daughter. And those colors are just like sunshine! LOVE IT! Have a nice trip!

Julia (BangersAndMash on Ravelry)

JP said...

The Champagne Fizz hat! Ok kidding aside. I agree that it should be something that reminds you of Hawaii. Ravelry has several dishcloths with tropical patterns (sea turtle, palm tree, etc). It seems like you usually go for wraps, but dishcloths are smaller which makes them more portable. Although you'd have to pay attention to the chart alot.

obsessmuch? said...

I wish I had a good suggestion for your trip knitting, but I do not. I do want to tell you that the work that you feature here is gorgeous (I just got here through Three yarn Girls and I would include their stuff in that). Thanks for sharing!!

maybe this would be appropriate: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/laminaria

Brenda said...

Oh, for vacation knitting, I recommend socks.
I always use circs, they don't jab the people next to you on the plane, and they don't look as lethal to the TSA :-)
If you don't like socks, then something equally small and portable like a hat.

Hi Alana!!

I'd love to win the yarn and pattern for my granddaughter.

Juliaknit said...

I love all of Alana's patterns and I am sure my daughter would love this sweater.

Heather said...

I really think you should knit some lingerie. Something from Sexy Little Knits, perhaps? It's a new (to most people)type of project, strangers will go NUTS trying to guess what you're making, and it won't be too big and heavy to cart around a tropical isle.

That yarn is gorgeous!

cindymen said...

I think a light shawl would be perfect to knit in Hawaii!

Pavla said...

How about something airy? May be a nice shawl out of lace yarn?
Have fun in Hawaii!

Frankly Beka said...

I like justthreadtwiddling's idea with bamboo yarn. Bright blue, green, or yellow (or all three) would add to the tropical feel of Hawaii. Twistyarnshop.com has a couple free sock patterns that are really cute. I especially like the Sake Sock pattern. It has a split toe so you could wear them with flip flops. Great for freezy-breeze toes, that would be uncomfortable in the open air; yet feel trapped by closed shoes while on vacation.

Doula Mommy said...

What a beautiful sweater and model!
Hawaii, so jealous! I always seem to knit a shawl of some sort when traveling. I'm getting ready for a road trip this weekend and am planning on taking the Citron pattern and some Malabrigo lace!
Have fun!!!!

Holly Marie said...

Hmmm...socks seem to be the theme in the comments so I won't say socks. Although socks are a good idea. When I travel I take something that is interesting enough to keep me amused, but not so difficult that I can't enjoy the scenery.
Sorry, I wasn't much help. :)
Enjoy your trip!

Kaylee said...

I would love to use this yarn to knit a Chloe for my granddaughter every year in different sizes as she grows. For airplane travel, I recommend a laceweight shawlette. My current favorite is the Echo Flower Shawl.
Thanks for this giveaway!

lizchatwell@yahoo.com said...

gorgeous! I'd love to make it for my niece! Hawaii knitting sounds like a turquoise blue shawl!

kikine78 said...

if i were going to Hawaii I would cast on a bikini, I've been wanting to knit a bikini for quite a while now.

JuleeQue said...

For Hawaii knitting: I suggest the Sunset Lace Stole. Easy to memorize beautiful cotton lace stole to wear with tanks or sundresses.

Jennifer said...

what great yarn! and a precious sweater, too. i definitely think you should cast on for hannah fettig's featherweight cardigan - perfect for breezy hawaiian nights, and since I want to cast on for it so badly but can't because I have too much going on, I can live vicariously through you! Have a great trip :)

Jennifer

jennie said...

What a great sweater pattern and beautiful model! Thanks for all the giveaways - I love to keep up with all the new yarn that I wouldn't get a chance to get out and see myself! :)

Noni at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

OMG! I LOVE that sweater! The yarn is yummy, too!

Amy said...

I would love a chance at this yummy yarn or pattern. I think socks would be good for your trip.

Heidi said...

Bamboo and flowers! Or something thats easy to wash the sand out of!!
