giveaway #71

The two winners of the Cakewalk Yarn skeins are:

bbmowery & Julia

Congratulations! Please contact me at yarnonthehouse@gmail.com to collect your prizes.



I have for you a giveaway that I would like to enter to win! A very talented indie dyer joins us today, Goddess Knits, who creates beautiful yarns by the name of Decadently Divine. Honestly, how can you not like a yarn called Decadently Divine?! And, let me add that the giveaway yarn that I have in my hot little hands right now is definitely divine and decadent. Renee of Goddess Knits was kind enough to send us two skeins of wonderful sock yarn: a skein of Moonlight Sock that has a touch of sparkle (5% stellina), and a skein of Decadent Sock that's the most gorgeous color called Red Plum.

Let me show you what these gorgeous skeins of sock yarn look like first...

GA71yarn


Since I don't have a pattern sponsor for you this time (sorry), I've decided to share with you several FREE patterns that I think would be a perfect match for these lovely skeins:

Multnomah by Kate Elsa: This shawl has been in my favorites for a long time now. How beautiful would it be knit out of either of the skeins?!

Leaf on the Wind by Purrlescent - For those of you sock knitters out there! The Moonlight Sock with the stellina strands would be a match made in heaven for this pattern.

Spatterdash Wristwarmers by Dagmar Mora: These are just awesome on so many levels! Either of these fantastics skeins of yarn would work for a pair.

Little House Shawl by Joanna Johnson: I realize that this small shawl is pictured on a child, but I think it would work as a shawlette for an adult. Darling!

Cubist Socks by Cookie A: Cookie's just a sock genius! Enough said.

Undine by Christine Ebers: How did I not know about this shawl pattern until now?! Love it!

Little Things by Veera Valimaki: And, a really great hat pattern by Veera that I'm totally going to queue! Maybe I'll add a little bit of length for more of slouch. Hmmmmm...

Hope you enjoy the yarn sponsor and the collection of free patterns for fingering weight that I've compiled. Two followers have the opportunity to win a skein of Decadently Divine sock yarn! Thank you, Renee, for sharing your lovely yarn with us!


I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:


1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.

2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 10/23/11. What would you knit up with one of these cute skeins of sock yarn? Would it be socks, a shawl, a hat, or maybe a baby sweater?! Share a pattern that you might use for a skein of fingering weight yarn (free or not).


I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.

Sincerely,

Ve

I would make myself some new gloves. I've been wanting a new pair of round-town driving gloves and either of these yarns would be perfect. I design my own patterns and have in mind a glove with some delicate cables on it. If I win, after I release the pattern, I'll offer up a copy for one of your giveaways.

Vanessa said...

A pair of socks, probably a Cookie A pattern, but not sure which one.

katherinelynn_04 said...

Likely a shawl/scarf. A mini Hawthorne or annis, perhaps. It would depend on which skein came to my home!

Typstatting said...

I would make socks probably Tuscany from Toe Up Two at a time!

Liz said...

I would use the Moonlight Sock for Celaeno by Romi Hill and the Decadent Sock for Fetching by Cheryl Niamath

barra said...

Maybe a scarf or socks, not sure. A Queen Anne scarf may be nice

Knitmish on Ravelry said...

Those are some lovely skeins! I think the Moonlight Sock one would make a terrific Ishbel shawl (by Ysolda Teague). Red Plum would make a great Citron or Simmer Dim!

ne-knopka said...

Scarf or socks

Anna

PNWBookGirl said...

Love the plum! I think it would look smashing in Nadine Foster's Stars N Stripes shawlette - http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/stars-n-stripes

Angela said...

I've been dying to make My Vampire Boyfriend socks from Knitty and that plum would be perfect!

Rachelle said...

I'd make Veyla mitts by Ysolda Teague from the plum and Connie by Vintage Purls in the green

Unknown said...

I've had my eye on
Little Things by Veera Valimaki, so if these lovely yarns come my way I'll definitely make it at least once for myself and/or a friend.

Sarah said...

Definitely a shawl! I've had Aestlight in my queue forever... so maybe that!

Zilliah Bailey said...

I want to lace a lacy tank top, there's a few patterns I've had my eye on that only use one skein of fingering.

kitten said...

Probably a hat or some gloves :). I really like Little Things that you suggested.
wildkitten/dot/handcrafts/at/gmail/dot/com

Stranded Things said...

I love stripey patterns; my latest favorite is Cladonia, so I think I would see how these pretty colors work together.

affiknity said...

I will knit a lovely shawl for myself.

Jen said...

A shawl, scarf, or some more baby things... so hard to decide!

Jen said...

Ooooh pretty!! I would probably cast on for a cute little toddler top - Marguerite by Helen Rose on Ravelry (sorry don't know how to link to the pattern on my phone)

jendada on ravelry

CrookedKnitter said...

I'm a sucker for those sparkly yarns! Those Leaf on the Wind socks would be perfect for the sparkly green yarn.

Chrissy said...

Wow, those two are beautiful! I would probably whip up a pair of socks...those leaf on the wind ones look devine!
Hugs xxx

Elise said...

I guess I would make some socks or gloves. The colors are beautiful.

Sylvie said...

I love sparkly yarn and would hate to hide them, so I'd probably turn the green skein into a pair of gloves or a scarf for my best friend who started medical school this fall.
The red skein would be for me me me :)

Kayla said...

I'd love to knitt leaves on wind and gloves! Fantastic patterns!

Denise said...

All of those patterns are great but I think I'd knit either q shawl or some socks for myself. I'm nearly finished Christmas knitting and ready to knit for me in the coming year :)

Tara said...

I have a seemingly never-ending number of patterns of socks and shawlettes that I want to knit in my Ravelry queue, so I've no doubt I could easily pluck those for these skeins!

Dclulu said...

Ooh, I love the red plum. I would make a pair of gloves, I think! And the sparkly green for a baby sweater.

Karen said...

I do love the Little Things hat very much, but I think for yarn with a high nylon content like the Decadent Sock you really should knit socks. Whenever I see beautiful hand-dyed yarn with high nylon content I almost weep with joy - hard wearing and gorgeous - what more could a sock knitter ask for? I would try something with cables or a hint of lace like the Hidden Path sock pattern by Sarah Fama.

Sue Lowe said...

What would I make? definitely a shawl. One would make a beautiful spring shawl and the other for fall. I think I would choose a pattern with a leaf motif to go with either the green colour or the fall theme.

Marlitharn said...

Definitely a shawl. Or maybe a hat. But probably a shawl. They're gorgeous!

Wooly Knits n Bits said...

Had a look at your suggestions and Undine would be my choice for my next sock yarn project.

Emily said...

I would knit a cute kerchief style scarf to wear with a jean jacket this fall.

Jaime P said...

A shawl of course but winter is coming so socks might be nice...

Cindy said...

At first I thought a shawl, but I love the hat pattern!

Mim said...

Socks or wristwarmers, I need both! Such beautiful colors.

Fluffy said...

I would knit up a shawlette or hat, would have to let the yarn speak to me first before deciding on a pattern though.

Beth said...

I would probably try a lace scarf. I've not ventured into lace much at all, but yarns like this that are almost solid would be perfect to show off the lace pattern. I don't know which pattern I'd try, though...something with lots of explanations for beginners! :)

Gianna said...

I would probably make a shawl (I'm in that kind of mood lately). I think I'd want to see the yarn in person before making a decision, though.

kristyh1981 said...

I would probably make a shawl. I'm not sure which. Probably one of the many in my que or faves :D

susanmhj said...

Oh definitely socks! Need some more to wear, so probably a toe up pattern, or Ann Budd, or Cookie A!
Thanks again!

Kassia said...

Socks! I'd probably knit a pair of plain vanilla ones, to show off the yarn. :)

Christine Lima said...

I would use one skein paired with something else to make Ripple by Helen Bingham... http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/ripple-16

Megan said...

I have Stephen West's Daybreak shawl all queued and rearing to go for these beautiful yarns. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

Little Miss S. said...

Oh, I am so split between a pair of mitts and a Saroyan scarf. Both would do me good, I think.

Margo said...

FIrst choice would be socks but then again a shawl. Beautiful yarn just needs to be enjoyed!

Rachel R. said...

I would have to say a shawl - I've knit a few pairs of socks, but I don't find that I wear them all that much. Shawls, however, I wear almost every day. The trick would be choosing which one from the hundreds in my queue!

rkray3 AT yahoo DOT com

Ginger said...

I would probably make socks, but maybe a pair of gloves if the mood strikes me!

renewedmind said...

I would most definitely make socks with this gorgeous yarn! So beautiful.

CeltChick said...

I'd knit a baby sweater. I've got a slew of cute patterns for these! AnnBan on Ravelry or
adevine@myway.com

Debbie said...

Probably some fingerless mitts. I'm totally addicted to making them! Debbie H

susan said...

Ve, Laura Chau's knee socks might be a good thing with this lovely yarn!

susan said...

Ve...I think Laura Chau's knee socks would be a good fit! for this yarn

Rae Lynne said...

Ooh, these colors would make for a really great, girly Spring sweater. I love the contrast of the two against one another.

If not a baby sweater, than maybe a beret of some kind. or fingerless mitts. There are so many possibilities!

Captain Sharmie said...

that green skein is divine! i've been looking for an excuse to make the sockhead hat, and that colour would be the best for me!

Krista said...

I've been in the mood for some new socks, I'd probably make matching vanilla mommy & me socks with alternating toes for me & the baby :-)

Laura said...

That moonlight sock yarn is fabulous! It looks squeezable AND sparkly! Usually, I run quickly away from any sparkle yarn, but that looks absolutely divine. I'd make gloves. They'd look like they already had snow on them!

Lydia said...

a shawlette definitely, but which one? hard to say.

Christine said...

Shawl, for sure!

twistedtexan said...

I've been on such a shawlette kick lately - I'm obsessed with Traveling Woman.

Elspeth H. said...

Definitely socks. The cubist sock pattern you shared would be AWESOME, or Looking Glass Socks: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/looking-glass-socks

October Rose said...

We are expecting our first little one in April, and I think this yarn would make a darling baby sweater!

knitterlydesigns said...

I'm really into cowls lately, so probably a cowl, or a small shawl.

lorraine said...

id have to knit shawls i think..the minty one would look cool knit up in this pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/flowers-on-the-edge ..the ss would show off the sparkle and with the berry wine color one id do this shawl http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/seaside-shawlette-2

Kathy said...

I'm thinking socks from the book Silk Road Socks, but not sure which one yet!

afh163 said...

I think I would make a shawlette using the pattern "198 yards of Heaven." I've been trying out this pattern for the first time now with worsted malabrigo and I think it would look great with sock yarn too! Fun giveaway :)

txtaurus on ravelry said...

I have been drooling over Lisa Mutch's designs, so I'd probably lean towards Variance...a little color for the winter ;)

Sarah said...

I would probably do something with a really intricate stitch pattern because I bet this yarn would show it off great! Either a lacey shawl or a cookie a. sock pattern

Emily said...

I just finished my first pair of socks for myself, and I'm hooked! So, socks, definitely.

Nicole said...

I would either make a pair of socks for myself or a baby sweater (I'm seriously into knitting both at the moment!). That green would be just perfect for either, but the plum is lovely as well! Thank you for offering such a lovely giveaway!

Rachel D. said...

I would like to try a baby sweater in fingering weight yarn. I think it would be so soft and light.
I would knit one of the sweaters from the sock yarn one-skein wonders book.

Kristina said...

Wow. I think a pair of socks with lots of cables would be beautiful! I do love knitting shawls, though.

Orli said...

Gorgeous! I've been looking at both the Dew Drops and Echo Flower shawls lately...so perhaps one of each :)

Debbie said...

I am on a major shawl kick right now, and I could fold either of these skeins right into my shawl knitting plans! Currently I am working on my second Litchfield, and I have both Stripe Study and Different Lines in the queue, along with Multnomah . . . and the list goes on . . . so I need lots of sock yarn!

Pensamientos Marcianos said...

Ishbel (shawl by Ysolda) has been on my queue for ages. Or maybe some Cookie A socks, like Nebula.

The Werling's said...

These are GEORGEOUS! I think i would make either a baby hat, socks or a shawl...i like some of the patterns you posted.
Thank you!
Amanda

amanda dot werling at gmail dot com

Sangeetha said...

i think something for a baby. I just finished this awesome cardigan and know of another baby that needs one

Susan said...

I'm addicted to knitting shawls..sock yarn is the perfect thing to knit with!

Lindr said...

For something a little different, I'd make this http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/scarf-with-no-name scarf. A narrow scarf that takes on skein of sock yarn with a beautiful lace pattern. It would be gorgeous in either of these yarns!

lindaran (on rav)

syd said...

How gorgeous! I have Jane Richmond's scarf 'Rae' queued up and ready for the perfect yarn! :-)

Kamigaeru said...

Lovely colors! I'm a shawl addict, so perhaps I'd knit up Jaali or one of the several other shawls in my queue.

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I would knit a shawl not sure what pattern, maybe one of the ones you listed.

Enid said...

Lately I've been partial to Cat Bordhi's Sweet Tomato Heel socks, so I think I'd pick a pattern from the new e-book. I'll probably pick some beads and knit the Hither & Yon socks, two at a time. Beautiful yarn!

2o2n said...

A scarf, propably something by Stephen West. I haven´t made anything by him yet, but wanting to, as soon as my other project are ready. Maybe chadwick http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/chadwick

josiekitten said...

I would definitely knit socks and be a twinkle toes! Possibly a Cookie A pattern or maybe a Knitspot pattern.

evan said...

i would probably whip myself up a new pair of mittens. i only have one pair, and that's just not enough.

grandmastatus said...

omygosh that yarn has sparkle!!! i would probably knit a shawl. i don't know if i would do something using both colors- like a study in stripes- or do a small shawlette with one and a pair of socks with the plum.
grandmastatus(at)gmail(dot)com

Sabrina said...

I'd probably knit a shawl. Maybe another Citron or the Starboard Cape from Knitscene Summer 2011.

sacha said...

I just added Undine to my queue last week- so I guess that means I gotta make it. Another thing I would use fingering for would be the long finger-less mitts (free pattern on purlbee).

Loca4crafts said...

I have never knit myself a shawl, but I would really like to try the ones that you suggested.

marlie said...

I would make a shawl/scarf. Maybe rock island by brooklyntweed.

amchart said...

Oooh. I like the baby sweater idea. Something sweet for my new baby due the week of Christmas! Rav amchart

TopHat said...

I'm thinking mittens! Or socks. They are very pretty. :)

becca said...

Gorgeous yarn! I'd love to make a beautiful shawl (perhaps Multnomah or Little Things). Yay for gorgeous new knits!

SnohoTina said...

Yummy yarn. I'd most definetly knit a shawlette, perhaps another multnomah. I'll keep my fingers crossed.

sparky136 said...

I would knit a baby sweater, there is a pattern that I and to knit in One Skein Sockyarn Wonders.

Charlotte said...

I think that I would make a scarf or shawl. I knit my first lace scarf this year and it went ok so am keen to try another.

Maria said...

While Multnomah is very high on my list of must-do's, at the moment I have been taken over by baby knitting - maybe I can very carefully stretch to both :-)

Conie said...

I would make a pair of lovely socks out of the Decadent yarn. Beautiful color! I don't know which pattern yet, but half the fun will be searching for a pattern.

greyowl (ravelry id)

KnittySue said...

With those beautiful colors I just may attempt a shawl.

Debbie S said...

I might make another shawl - they're so pretty. And I like the Escapist Shawl pattern by Mary Keenan. I found it on Ravelry (it's free).

Teri said...

I have the Leaf on the Wind pattern in my queue to make as my first pair of knitted socks. Those yarns look perfect for them. Thanks again for offering such a great give-away.

-terimr714@gmail.com

Knittingmomma79 said...

Pair of socks , I just got my copy of Wendys Socks from the toe up book!

Barb said...

I think I would make a lacy cowl for my daughter, something she could pull up onto her head to keep warm and cozy. No pattern in mind yet; I'll probably make it up as I go along.

flora said...

I'm in love with the little shawl for a child. perfect for my girl!

Kristin said...

Beautiful yarn !! I love to knit socks, but with this yarn I might just have to knit my first shawl !!

Tish said...

I love Renee and her designs but have not tried her yarn,... yet. I think I would have to use her yarn on a shawl... probably the Little House Shawl for my daughter who is begging me for another shawl. ^_^

The Distracted Knitter said...

Wow! This yarn is gorgeous. I'm really liking the Undine pattern; I seem to be in a shawl mood. But I also love the spatterdash too. I'm putting them both in my to do file.

Sara said...

Beautiful yarn - I am thinking the Undine or maybe the Herringbone Fingerless Mitts by Joanna Campbell (free pattern on Rav)

nhsarab at yahoo dot com

MK Smith said...

I would knit socks, probably something from my favorite sock pattern book, "Knitted Socks East and West."

yarrrnmatey said...

It would have to be http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/28s-big-sister-77
SO Perfect for either yarn!

Nuttygal said...

I would make a cream and sugar cowl or if I had enough yarn I would make a lorimer.

Brenda said...

I would make a shawl, something along the lines of Damson by Ysolda Teague; although the Cubist Socks have been in my queue for a while.

(goodstuff on Rav)

meeshelle said...

what gorgeous skeins! I have been admiring the Mezquita Shawl pattern from Roxanne Yeun and think either of these would look lovely knit up!! Thanks for the great giveaway!

Anu said...

I'd love to make a shawl for myself - probably one of the lovely patterns that you have shared!
-babyloveknit on ravelry

brittanylaine said...

Socks, definitely. I have a few in my queue that I might do- probably Rick by Cookie A, though.

floderten said...

Hmm. I would probably make myself a hat, maybe the new Northanger Abbey by Veera Välimäki!

Anjanette said...

I've been enjoying watching Picnic Knit's seven songs unfold. I'm tempted to knit each and every one of those shawls!

Avila said...

I haven't had a sock project to work on for a couple months so I'd make socks! I have the book "Sock Innovation" from Cookie A but haven't knit any of the patterns yet so I'd choose one from that book.

Anett Kiefer said...

I would knit a nice shawl and a pair of socks.

LadyC said...

I would knit myself one of the beautiful Knit Rhapsody shawls. These yarns are beautiful and need to be shown off not hidden away in shoes! :-)

zed said...

I think either colorway would be nice for this lace scarf.

Karla said...

The red plum would make a gorgeous 3S Shawl and the pattern is free!

fracksmom said...

The one with sparkle I would make a shawl, probably the Traveling Woman, but you new ones are all very nice to try a new one. The one without the sparkle would be great for a pair of socks. I would use the Cookie A pattern, since I have already made two pairs from some of her amazing patterns and would love to make another from a new pattern.

Love your free patterns, thanks

Suzanne said...

I love this post and all the ideas I have gotten. I'd like to knit a pair of helix socks from Brave New Knits.

Beth W. said...

Socks! I just can't get enough of them! Easy to carry around and work on when you have a few spare minutes! Love the colors!

FlauschiOhren said...

What lovely yarn, the colours, the sparkle - oh yes! I would definitely make a shawl, like the Leafprint Shawlette by Anne Hanson or maybe the Butterfly Forest Shawl by Ashley Knowlton. There are so many gorgeous shawl patterns out there, it always takes me quite some time to choose what to knit next =)

Thank you very much for that wonderful giveaway.

Kind regards,
Maike (FlauschiOhren on Ravelry)

maerillem said...

I would definitely make some sort of colorwork something with this beautiful yarn. I still have lots of leftovers from the Westknits KAL this summer and I'd hate to not be able to use the rest of them.

Zabbers said...

Oh, those ARE divine! I would make socks with them, something with a rather complicated pattern that could really show up in those colors.

Judi said...

Those yarns are beautiful and either would be perfect for "Furrows Cowl" by Miriam L. Felton.

Juliaknit said...

I would definitely make a Cookie A sock pattern. Her Monkey pattern is the only one I have attemped - I need to branch out.

Jesse said...

I'd be tempted to knit up an Orchid Thief Shawlette with the Decadent Sock skein, but finding the perfect something for the Moonlight would require some days of fondling I think!

Andrea said...

I've really been on a sock kick (no pun intended) this year so it would definitely be socks! And I love that Cookie A pattern, so maybe that one.

LauraH said...

I am leaning toward a nice cowl, but a shawl would be beautiful too. Thanks for the giveaway!

Needles And Ewe said...

I think the Red Plum would make an excellent Damson by Ysolda Teague. The Moonlight Sock would be nice as Little Things or as fingerless gloves.

PenCraft said...

The cubist socks are fantastic. That would be my pick. Thanks for pointing this pattern out.

Zibeline Knits said...

Well, the Jadeite would make a stunning lace cardigan. I actually have the "Daydreams in Lace" pattern by Brooke Nico in mind. It calls for fingering weight.

Ertman-Trowbridge Family said...

I am not the only one who thinks this, but both of those lovely hanks would make gorgeous Ishbel's by Ysolda Teague. But I can also see a pretty pair of fingerless mitts emerging from them too.

BigDamnHero said...

Hi, I would make a pair of socks or slippers for my mom. I don't know what pattern I'd use, sorry. Anyways, I hope to be picked, thanks! Btw I'm Gabriel, majphule on ravelry.

Susan Ipavec said...

I would make a fairly complex sock pattern, with tons of my favorite: sparkly yarn

I would open the boat went away and put him in the bay

mommieof4munchkins said...

The yarn with sparkle would make amazing mini monsters and hexipuffs! Love it.

Jen said...

I would probably make a shawl -- I made my 1st in January and have made 3 in total this year. I'm in shawl love!

My go-to shawl pattern is Gaenor, which can be used with ANY yarn, as you knit your skein(s) and follow the increases until you have half left, then you start decreasing. I've made 2!

Elaine said...

The sparkle in the yarn just calls for a shawl!

k2ntrish said...

I love making shawls so would make Mulnomah. If I had any leftover yarn I would make handwarmers.

JP said...

I'd do a little scarf/shawl like Hitchhiker or Trillian.

Beautiful yarns this time!

Kristen said...

Multnomah has been on my to-knit list for a while now, so winning this yarn would be just the sign I need that it's time to get started on it!

knittingvee said...

another baby surprise jacket for my next LO due in March! :)

ikkinlala said...

I'd make Inlay socks by Hunter Hammersen.

Celeste said...

My cousin and his wife are having a baby in the spring, and I would love to make something for him/her. Both of these sweaters are really cute and simple: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/brassiere-031-t9-408 and http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/le-cardigan-479-t7-247

Lisaknits said...

I love the Spatterdash wrist warmers!

Azangelique53 said...

I think both yarns are lovely. The In the Land of OZ would be a good pattern for the Moonlight and a Lacy sock pattern would be terrific in the Red Plum color.

Lizzi said...

A shawl, I think. probably Ishbel which is my fallback for shawls everytime.

Anonymous said...

I have 3 little grandchildren. Would love to make something for them. Right now I love the new Sublime Book. Karen L.

ravnejenta said...

I recently was lucky enough to win a skein from Goddess Knits that probably will be a shawl. If I win again, I'd go for socks. No idea which ones, though.

masshag said...

So pretty! I've been on a shawl kick so I would probably knit another. On the other hand, I need more knitted socks.

Debra said...

Can't choose between the shawls and the socks. If forced possibly Undine.

Nanny Jean said...

First I would knit a shawl and then a pair of socks. The yarn colors are very colorful.

Seraphimgirl said...

I would have to say that I'd make socks. Two pairs - lots of cables. Yum. Thanks for the give-away!

Laura said...

I have recently been into shawls. LOVE THEM. I think i would use one of the skeins in Bashful Butterflies shawlette by Julia. It is so pretty and both colors would look wonderful in the shawl.

Donner said...

I would make a pair of mittens. Possibly the Let it Snow mittens as I love that pattern!

Emily said...

I think my hands and feet would be in competition over this project. I've never knit any socks before but would love to try something lacy and fun like tribute by Brenda Patipa or whip up a nice little set of hand warmers.

meppybn said...

I am in the midst of a pair of Spatterdashes myself - love the unusual construction and out-of-the-box design :) There are a lot of other gorgeous free fingerless mitts patterns on Ravelry that are in my queue too.

Nina said...

Ooooh, that's a tricky question. I think a shawl from the green (that sparkle needs showing off!) and a lovely, soft, snuggly pair of gloves from the plum. I have never made socks in my knitting career and certainly couldn't face putting anything that pretty into my grotty shoes!

Nina

Rebecca Swan said...

Probably a hat or some fingerless mitts. No specific pattern, as I math out my own ideas.

Elizabeth said...

I will make gloves.

purlverde said...

If I won one of these beautiful skeins, no matter which color, I think a new pair of socks is in order. I'm thinking tiny cables for warmth, twisted stitches for pop and therefore more than likely a pair of socks from Cookie A.'s Knit.Sock.Love. I'm totally excited at the thought of winning this! I'm PurlVerde on Rav, see you around!

Susan J. said...

I'd make a shawl - or maybe a neckerchief. Thanks for the chance to win!

Catherine said...

Love the plum. Am thinking of the shawl Meandering Vines.

cmflame said...

I'm thinking Inlay from Knitty, First Fall 2011 would be a beautiful sock made from these yarns.

Bethany said...

I just want to knit socks, socks, and more socks! It's fall here, and that means my feet are always freezing.

Eva said...

Gloves.. Not that there is a lot of use for them in Florida, but my hands get chilly in the office occasionally.. Kingdom is the pattern that is currently striking my fancy
(Sorry if this posts twice.. my internet hated me briefly)

Melissa said...

I haven't ever knit socks, due to fear of the second sock syndrome. However, I've been dreaming about making the bintje pattern.

Mujercita said...

I think that yarn wants to be a shawl!

Prajaline said...

I would crochet flowers with it! They are great flower colors!! So pretty!

Thanks for doing an awesome giveaway!

prajaline [at] gmail.com

Laurice said...

I would knit So Hot in Red Top. No one has knit it yet!!!
Now for a request- I would LOVE if the 'post a comment' prompt was ABOVE all the comments. This blog has a lot of fans and, thus a lot of comments.

Deb said...

I would use it for the sock test knit Im doing for MsKimba on Rav. They would make awesome socks

latifa said...

Cookie A has a pattern in My Grandmothers Knits books that I am lusting over. Plus I might have a few shawlettes faved on Ravelry.
Latifa
