I loooove Army of knitters. It's really hard to pick up just one, but I'm dreaming of the parfait dress since september !

Kayla said...

This yarn is perfect!

donna said...

Love the Chambord Truffle. The Nougat is gorgeous too. Then there is Pumpkin Pie..... Too hard to decide on just one!

Aislynn said...

I love the entire collection!!! I have to say though if I had to pick just one, it would be the Chambord Truffle or the Nougat.

Marlitharn said...

Nougat is lovely, and I also really like the Parfait tunic. All the patterns are great!

Avila said...

The whole collection is lovely! I really like Rhubarb & Custard - the stitches are silhouette of the sweater are beautiful!

Hard to choose! I love the Pumpkin Pie sweater, but if I could pick only one I'd pick the Chambord Truffle cardigan :)

Jenny May (renewedmind) said...

I love the Chambord Truffle Cardigan. How beautiful!

josiekitten said...

Definitely Nougat for me too! That beaded yarn is just stunning.

Lori said...

Kim Mears said...

Chambord truffle and pumpkin pie are my favorites.

Sophia said...

I love the chambord truffle sweater. Love it - and have loved it for a while. That model and those photos are so memorable. Beautiful.

Erin said...

Hmmm, I like Chambord Truffle, Nougat and Pumpkin Pie, but I think I'm most likely to actually knit the Chambord Truffle Hat.

pigbook1 said...

It is so hard to choose!! the nougat sweater just barely squeeks to the top of my list

StaceyKnitsIt said...

I like the Parfait Tunic best!

Lydia said...

all gorgeous

susanmhj said...

Beautiful! I think the sweater that goes with the truffle hat.

Susan G said...

I am all for the Pumpkin Pie!
Love it!

I like the Rhubarb and Custard- to choose just one!

Cindy said...

I love the Parfait Tunic - looks so comfy. Thanks for the giveaway!

Julia said...

WOW!! They're all so nice, but I'll have to say that Pumpkin Pie is my favorite.

Megan said...

I love the 'Chambord Truffle' pattern. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!

Anonymous said...

All I can say is your collection is absolutely STUNNING! I really love your incredible designs. The nougat is dropdead gorgeous!

Sandra M.

TheCrone said...

Pick only one? Well the Pumpkin Pie is stunning - both pattern and colour. Then I want to stroll confidently around in the Parfait dress, but I'd start with the hat and then the Parfait Tunic and then...

Denise Cole said...

What an interesting collection! It is like looking at a high fashion magazine. I love the parfait tunic and the pumpkin pie... The names of the pieces are just great!

Ginger said...

I think my favorite is Nougat.

Mercy said...

I like the Apple toffee.

Laura said...

OMG PUMPKIN PIE; it's got total awesomeness written all over it. That and if you increase the length at the bottom to cover the but it would be a wicked tunic with a wide belt. Perfect for my brand new leggings. Really loving it.

Laura from Laurawelch.08152010@gmail.com

Emily said...

Oh, the Chambord Truffle Sweater! I love the textures, and the delicate color combo!

Catie said...

I love the Parfait Tunic!

Stephanie said...

These yarns are absolutely beautiful! My two favorite Sugar and Spice patterns are Chambord Truffle and Rhubard & Custard cardigans, although my personal styling would be a bit different than the model's. ;-)

Mindy said...

My favorite is definitely the Parfait dress!

Nadine said...

Rhubarb and Custard. This would be a wonderful addition to the wardrobe.

Melanie said...

I test knit rhubarb and custard for Heather..and I love it!
I also want to knit the Truffle cardigan, pumpkin pie and Toffee apple..with the matching gloves of course. =)

Cary said...

I love the Rhubarb & Custard. The are all awesome though.

Knittaroo said...

Yum! Delicious patterns and delicious names! If I have to choose, I'll pick the Toffee Apple Armlets, but there's mot a pattern in there that I don't like.

afh163 said...

Rhubarb & Custard cardigan. So beautiful!

Jodi said...

Oooh, the rhubarb and custard vest is adorable!

Judi A. said...

That yarn looks so beautiful and scrumptious! The hat is adorable and would be fun to knit and wear, but I do like the Parfait Tunic.

judi7597(at)bellsouth(dot)net

queenorivers said...

I think the parfait dress is one of the most beautiful dress patterns I have ever seen! The usage of the luxury yarn with a lace pattern and the fact that it is skin tight and sexy just makes it wonderful!

JoAnnaJae said...

I would LOVE the Toffee Apple vest. What a cute ruffle in back!

Rachel D. said...

My fav would have to be the Pumpkin Pie sweater. Very interesting design features!

N-J said...

I love Heather my favorite is Pumpkin Pie!

eylchak said...

Pumpkin pie and the parfait dress are scrumptuous! Love the whole collection though.

Elaine.

Nougat is my favorite!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I like the Parfait Tunic and the Rhubarb and Custard.

Julie said...

Rhubarb and Custard - love it! I doubt I'd wear it as the model does though. Too cold in these parts.

TopHat said...

Wow. The Parfait Dress looks like a lot of fun, though for where I live, Pumpkin Pie would be more practical. But who cares about that?!

Jenn said...

That is a really difficult decision. I'm leaning towards Chambord Truffle or Nougat.

Angela said...

I love the Pumpkin Pie!!!

Erin said...

I'm going to vote for pumpkin pie. I really like it. Once again, the yarn is beautiful.

Mary said...

Pumpkin Pie!!! But the whole collection is soooo amazing!

Kim said...

Rhubarb and custard FTW! Way cute, I love sleeveless cardis.

Kate said...

I love the Chambord Truffle Cardigan. So sweet!

Melissa said...

Such an interesting collection! I really like the Toffee Apple Armlets, they're so dramatic.

Laura said...

What beautiful yarn! I think my favorite is the Nougat sweater, though I'd wear it with a little more underneath :)

--aprilshowers on Ravelry

Vanessa said...

Chambord Truffle is beautiful...and sounds yummy, too!

Kenoshia said...

It is really hard to choose a favorite here. It is between Nougat, Pumpkin Pie, and the Parfait Tunic. The yarn looks very lovely!

Laurie said...

Wow how beautiful! I think my fav is the parfait tunic. If I had the bod......I would definitely love the dress. I can't wait for the winter collection. The preview sweater is gorgeous!!!
Laurie

Laura said...

I'm in love, love, love with the Chambord Truffle sweater. It is gorgeous!

Everything is fantastic! But if I had to pick one it would be the Nougat. I love cardis!

Reikjavyk said...

Can't decide between Nougat and Pumpkin Pie ♥

Danielle said...

Wow, gorgeous yarn! And I adore the Chambord Truffle Hat, so awesome!

confessions of a former candy corn princess said...

I would have to say all your patterns are beautiful & if I had the opportunity to knit one it would be

Rhubarb & Custard


all of your patterns are lovely!

kikine78 said...

Sara said...

What a great collection...I really liked a few of those patterns - but I liked the Parfait Tunic the best.

nhsarab at yahoo dot com

Cindy said...

Nougat, although it was hard to pick!

flossie said...

ACK I have been following Army of Knitters for soooo long on ravelry, going back and forth between what I'd like to make. I love how high fashion it all is! For me, it's all about the Parfait dress, if I had the guts to wear it, but if I'm playing it safe, then it's the Rhubarb and Custard cardigan. I'm seriously crossing my fingers for this edition of YOTH!!

patsy said...

I like nougat

Turtle said...

love the Chambord Truffle but who couldn't love the pumpkin pie as well.... tribute it to the season.

Nicole said...

I absolutely love 'Pumpkin Pie' and how it's constructed, that's pure genius. :)Such pretty yarn to be won.

Tiphanie Wong said...

Gorgeous yarn! I can't decide between Nougat and Parfait Tunic, but I think I will go with Nougat.

The collection is awesome! I love both the chambord truffle hat and cardi. They rock!

Hands down, the Nougat cardigan is my favorite. ::swooons::

Cadame said...

we can only pick one??! It's hard.. I wish i had the time, yarn and speed to knit them all.I think i would start with Pumpkin pie first!:)

Elise said...

Those are beautiful!

liz said...

Beautiful patterns!! Exquisitely knit and styled!! I especially love that chambord truffle cardi!

Celeste said...

I really like the Parfait Dress, and the Parfait Tunic would be second...both are so nice.

Amber said...

Hard choice - but either Nougat or the Toffee Apple Armlets.

Love the style!

kshotz said...

I may have just killed everyone in my house as I sucked in all the air in our domicile when I saw that yarn! OMGosh that is GORGEOUS!!!!! (Crossing my fingers extra tight this week!)

I like the apple toffee arm warmers!

Kristen said...

I love the Toffee Apple Armlets!

Rainlover said...

This is a interesting collection, I think my favorite has to be the pumpkin pie top, it just looks super cozy.

TK said...

I recently discovered Army of Knitters. I love the collection, but best of all Rhubarb & Custard.

Connie said...

These designs are so modern, yet girly. I like Pumpkin pie and Rhubarb & Custard.

9crafty11 said...

Wow...it was really hard to choose. Just a beautiful collection. I would definitely knit the Parfait Tunic, but the design features of Rhubarb & Custard is amazing.

Sara Kirby said...

These yarns are so feminine. I <3 them!

Debbie said...

My fav is the Toffee Apple Armlets
They are gorgeous! Debbie in Alaska

MyFairDaisy said...

The toffee apple armlets for sure!

Linda said...

Love the entire collection but if I have to pick it's Nougat!

Katy S. said...

Well, in terms of confections, Nougat is pretty boring, but in terms of this collection, Nougat it is!

Lindsay said...

I always squeeze that yarn when I am in my LYS. . . it's so gorgeous! That Nougat pattern is indeed gorgeous, but I think Pumpkin Pie is sweet, too!

Heather said...

Did you see the sweater in the winter preview tab?? MUST HAVE IT!

I love sculptural patterns so much.

sherry said...

I like the Parfait Tunic.

Frankly Beka said...

I absolutely love the parfait dress. However, I'd probably wear it as a shirt over jeans. I'm just a little leg shy.

Allison said...

Lovely, and a fun interview! Rhubarb and Custard is my favorite, all the way :)

Rachelle said...

Chambord Truffle Cardigan is my favourite, nice shape and I love the contrast rows.

Ve,
The Parfait Tunic is scrumptious! I'm adding it to my list of have-to-knits!!

Faye said...

All her designs are soo beautiful! But the Pumpkin Pie pullover is definitely my favorite for fall. It just looks like something you'd want to cuddle up in every day.

knitwork said...

Nougat, Nougat, Nougat. I mean, wooow!

KnittySue said...

mommieof4munchkins said...

I would have to pick the Chambord Truffle. I do happen to love the bikini too but I am far to well stacked to wear it even if I was skinny enough ;)

knitterlydesigns said...

I think I would choose the Parfait tunic. I love pink!

Jen said...

Really, I think they're all great - I would probably just randomly pick!

Stephanie B. said...

I have knit Pumpkin Pie which I love and probably will do the parfait tunic. I love the dress, but just don't have the figure for a fitted knit dress I don't think!

Jaime P said...

I love the Parfait Tunic.

kirika13 said...

I love the whole sugar and spice collection. It is really great stuff. My faves are both parfaits that dress looks super fun, and the tunic i would wear all the time too.
What a great giveaway. Thanks again Ve for spoiling us! Good Luck everyone :D

B said...

Sugar and Spice is a wonderful collection. I think I love Chambord Truffle Hat the most, though. I am also waiting on pins and needles for the winter collection, which looks to be stunning as well.

Emily said...

Wicked giveaway! I really love the pumpkin pie sweater and the rhubarb & custard cardi.

Oh my Chambord Truffle is drool worthy! I think I am going to dream about it tonight. :)

Rebecca Swan said...

Wow, gorgie! I'd never seen AofK before, and I like this collection so much I bookmarked them. I love the cable/dropped details on pumpkin, the airy sleeves on the parfait tunic, but I think my faves are the toffee apple waistcoat and gloves. Wow!

Ms. Knitpicky said...

Lovely collection! Pumpkin Pie and Toffee Apple are definitely my favorites.

blessedserenity said...
