giveaway #105

The three winners of the Annie Yarns giveaway are:

Catherine, Krys @ Keeping Plus, & amchart

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


I'm truly ecstatic and honored to be hosting a Botanical Knits giveaway today! By now you just have to know that I'm an Alana Dakos of NeverNotKnitting fanatic/devotee/enthusiast, possibly could be called a NNK maniac! Alana's newest collection is beyond breathtaking. Words can't describe what the twelve Botanical Knits patterns do to my little knitting heart. I stalk the patterns on Ravelry regularly, along with so many others, I'm sure!

I've been lucky enough to knit two of the pieces in the collection already: I test/sample knit the Pressed Leaves beret last year & when Alana started posting the pictures of the collection on Rav, I begged for an advance copy of the Autumn's End sweater to knit for Jasmine and to feature on the blog during the giveaway! I'm thrilled with how the Autumn's End turned out...

Pattern: Autumn's End
Designer: Alana Dakos
Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool
Colorway: Gray
My Rav project page here
Modeled by: Jasmine, my DD

This pullover is just perfect! I intentionally knit this sweater smaller than the smallest size with some mods (all listed in my pattern notes) on purpose. I was trying to perfect the changes that I wanted to make for my larger size, and I'm really happy I did. Jasmine loves her sweater and has worn it several times already. The pattern is beautifully written, easy to work from, and kept my attention the entire time. I knit this thing in 5 days flat - granted it was a really small version of the sweater.

I ended up choosing to use some Silky Wool from my stash for this project (which I think worked very well for this earthy leaf design), but I'm really itching to knit this sweater for myself out of the original yarn Alana chose for the book, Berroco's Ultra Alpaca Light. The UAL is such a gorgeous yarn and has such a beautiful palette of colors to chose from. Now, if only I could pick just one!

I don't need to tell you that I want to knit all of the projects in this book. So, I'm just going to post a little collage of the projects in the order I plan to conquer this endeavor (starting from bottom left corner and following to the right and up the side):


bkcollage


Alana says, "Knitters can order the printed copy for $22 + shipping. As a special thank you for preordering the printed copy, they will get the e-book for free immediately so that they can start on their projects. The printed book will ship mid-May. They will also receive an exclusive extra botanically inspired garment pattern with the copy of their printed book as a thank you from me for preordering. OR They can just order the e-book by itself for $18. This is a great option for those knitters who live internationally and do not want to pay the high cost of shipping. After the pre-order period ends in May.. the book will be available EITHER in print for $22 or e-book for $18. There will be no digital and print bundle offered."

So, you better jump on the band wagon! Now onto the good stuff... I have so many prizes for you this time! Alana is offering THREE PDF copies for three very lucky winners! Yup, that's the entire e-book for THREE lovely followers who comment below. Along with that, I have an array of yarn prizes:


GA105yarn


That bucket is stuffed full of yarn from some of our wonderful sponsors for the three e-book winners! Here's what's in there:

TWELVE skeins of Berroco Ultra Alpaca in the yummy Candied Yam Mix color. That's enough to knit either the largest size of Autumn's End, or you could knit a smaller size and use the remaining skeins for some Spring Foliage fingerless mitts!

FOUR skeins of Classic Elite Yarns Magnolia in a luscious color called Terra Cota. That's just enough yarn to knit yourself a Wrapped In Leaves shawl.

ONE skein of Miss Babs Cosmic Hand-painted Sock Yarn in a stunning color named Biker Chick. You can either knit yourself a pair of Ivy Trellis Socks or the Ivy Trellis Mittens.

Then there's ONE skein of Madelinetosh Tosh Merino DK in the Magnolia Leaf colorway for a beautiful Pressed Leaves of your very own.

And, finally a squishy lovable skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino in the earthy Harvest color to knit up a Forest Floor hat.

BUT, that's not all! We had such a huge response from sponsors about this giveaway that there's another "bucket full" of yarn that I sent along to Alana who will be hosting an additional giveaway on her NeverNotKnitting blog later this week, which will include: enough Brooklyn Tweed Shelter to knit a Twigs and Willows, more Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light in another color, more Classic Elite Yarns Magnolia, more Miss Babs Cosmic Hand-painted Sock Yarn, and additional yarn from the book's projects. Between the both of us, I think we got the whole book covered!! Be sure to check Alana's blog for more details in a few days.

Thank you to all the fantastic sponsors and Alana for putting together a giveaway to remember on YOTH!


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, 3/10/13. Which pattern is your favorite in the Botanical Knits collection? Alright, I'm kidding, you can list your top three, since there's no way you could pick just one!


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

Oh my goodness! What an amazing giveaway. My favorites are definitely Autumn's End, Forest Floor, and the Ivy Trellis Socks!

Yarn Yenta said...

I have been looking forward to this book, and I love the patterns.
My favourites are entangled vines and oak trail. I made several little leaves already as they are a quick mini project.

knitterbeader said...

I've been looking at this collection for a while now, and I know I want to knit the Autumn's End, the Pressed Leaves hat and the Twin Leaf cowl. Thanks for such a nice give-a-way!!!

Pretentious Wombat said...

I've enjoyed Alana's designs for a good while. I think the first thing I would make from this collection would be the Spring Foliage mitts. I just love mitts. :-)

Michelle said...

You're right, there's no way to pick just one! My favorites are Buds and Blooms, Twigs and Willows, and Oak Trail. Amazing patterns, all, and what a generous lot of sponsors!!!

Holly K said...

Even three is too short a list, but I guess I'd say Autumn's End, Entangled Vines, and Pressed Leaves.

SherryG. said...

Oh my goodness this is such a fantastic giveaway. My top three would be: Twigs and Willows, Autum's End, and Wrapped in Leaves.

This collection is so amazing! I think my three favorites are Oak Trail, Twigs and Willows, and Pressed Leaves...but it's pretty hard to choose.

October Rose said...

Wow, thank you! I love Autumn's End, Oak Trail, and Forest Floor. :)

Vanessa said...

Oak Trail is such a hip and different looking hat! Twigs and Willows is also very sweet!

Twigs and Willows is my hands down favourite! I MUST make it. i really, really love Oak Trail too though... and the mittens whose name I can't remember! A gorgeous gorgeous book. (SarahVV on Rav!)

Thank you!

Only 3 choices? but there're 13 of them >.< I love Autumn's End, Entangled Vines, and Twigs and Willows.

Kendra said...

I love love love Buds and Blooms, as well as Twigs and Willows and Autumn's end. What a lovely collection!

Sheila said...

Love the bucket full of yarn. And really, all the patterns in this collection are lovely, but my favorites are the Ivy trellis socks and mittens, and the wrapped in leaves shawl.

Kayla said...

I love Ivy Trells Mittens and Socks

Sylvie said...

My two favorites are the Autumn's End pullover and the Twigs and Willows cardigan. The Ivy Trellis socks and Oak Trail hat are tied for third, but the whole collection is gorgeous.

Tina said...

I love the entangled vines. The cardigan would be lovely to wear year round here on the west coast of B.C.

Zilliah Bailey said...

Ooooh, so hard to decide! I think I have to go for Autumn's end, oak trail, and twigs & willows - so gorgeous!

florapie said...

Oak Trail is my standout favourite, but I have been eyeing everything in this collection. What an excellent giveaway you've got this time!

Kamigaeru said...

Entangled vines would definitely be my top pick. Seamless? Cables? Yes please. And maybe those hats, too...!

Tia said...

Twigs and Willow, Oak Trail, and Ivy Trellis socks in that order. Love these designs! Still need to get cracking on some of her patterns from Coastal Knits.

Hind DP said...

I like the Autumns Edge and the Pressed Leaves beret, and all the cardigans, too.

Twigs and willows wins hands down. Although your lovely Pressed leaves sweater is second, and really, may be knit first as I'm itching to make a pullover. :)

I'd like to try knitting oak trail, the construction looks really clever. thanks for the chance to win.

fridica said...

Oak Trail is my absolute favourite, didn't even have to think about it :)

Rachelle said...

Love Autumns End, Oak Trail and Twigs and Willows.

slmiller8 said...

My favorite is Autumn's End, but I really like all the other patterns, too!

Stranded Things said...

*swoon*

You were not lying about not being able to choose just one! Even three is really pushing it. I would have never believed that something as simple and traditional as a leaf pattern could still be used in so many fresh and inventive ways! I rarely see books that have this many patterns that I would knit in a heartbeat.

Nevertheless, my top three are Ivy Trellis socks, Twigs and Willows and Wrapped in Leaves.

Phyllis said...

I like Buds and Blooms best I think, but this whole collection and the colors used are ME. :-)

Wendy said...

Have just finished one of Alana's patterns from Coastal Knits... My choice (for starters) Autumn's End, Twigs and Willows, Spring Foliage...

Julie said...

oh wow! this is such a terrific giveaway!! thanks to you all!
my favorites patterns would probably be Autumns End, Oak Trail and Twigs and Willows but can I really decide? not sure!

jennybookworm said...

Entangled vines cardigan, Oak Trail hat and Wrapped in Leaves shawl... But you're right - I do love them ALL. I bought the e-book a day or so after it was released so I already have all the patterns but would just LOVE to get my hands on some of that yarn to knit up one of the patterns with!

Nena said...

Oooh, I love nature patterns! Entangled Vines, Buds and Blooms, and Wrapped in Leaves are my favorites!

storiedyarns said...

I LOOOOVE Entangled Vines and Twigs and Willows best, and also those Tiny Leaves would make such a fun garland!

Twigs & Willows definitely!! :)

Olivia said...

I am IN LOVE with Forest Floor, Buds and Blooms, and Entangles Vines...and everything else! Love this collection!

becca said...

It is always amazing to me how seeing a sweater in a different color or on a different model completely changes my view of it. I had thought Autumn's End was nice, but seeing it in the gorgeous gray you picked for Jasmine - oh! Love at first sight! Must knit!

Laura K. said...

I absolutely love these patterns and the yarn is gorgeous! Would be thrilled to win this giveaway! My 3 favorites are the pressed leaves hat, Diana shawl and Magnolie mittens. Oh, I also would love to knit the paintbox socks. Socks are one of my favorite things to knit. Nothing like putting on a pair of handknit socks!

I'm most looking forward to knitting Twigs and Willows. That cardi is so perfect for me. Simple with just a little bit of flair.

I have to say, Autumn's End is definitely my favorite. And your version looks great on your daughter! The whole book has beautiful patterns, and I will have to take advantage of the pre-order.

MarshaLa said...

I particularly like the Pressed Leaves hat and Ivy Trellis socks. But the whole collection of designs is beautiful and the yarns used in the photos are such lovely earth tones.

Sara said...

I liked Autumn's End, Pressed Leaves and Entangled Vines! Honestly, I like them all.

mary! said...

i'm a sucker for three quarter length sleeves, so entangled vines is at the top of my list! twigs and willows is up there, too, because it looks soooo snuggly warm. thanks for the giveaway!!

I think I love all these patterns...but Autumns End is probably the one I would it first. Thanks for the giveaway.

Isa said...

What an amazing giveaway! Thank you so much, thank you Alana and thank you yarn sponsors! I'm in a garment knitting mood, so my favourite designs are obsiously the cardigans and sweaters: Autumns ends, Buds and blooms, Entangled vines and twigs and willows.

Sherrie_h said...

Entangled Vines, definitely, with the Ivy Trellis mittens and Oak Trail hat trailing slightly behind. They are all lovely!

Sharon M. said...

Love them all but Buds and Blooms, Pressed Leaves and Ivy Trellis socks are my stand out favorites.

Alanna said...

Not sure if I can wait for the giveaway... I may order a copy for my mom just in case I don't win.
My first attraction goes to Twigs and Willow, the ivy trellis mittens and the oak trail hat... just keep me head to toe in botanical bliss!

Erin said...

Twigs and Willows! Also really loving Autumn's End and Spring Foliage. Love the leafy motifs. :)

sparky136 said...

My favorite is the Oak Trail hat.

Sarah said...

Oak trails & twin leaf loop are my favorites from this collection!

Monica said...

My favorite top three: Autumns End, because it looks so wonderfully cozy. Ivy Trellis socks, because I am a devout sock knitter and they look so textural and lovely. Spring Foliage, because my hands are always cold in the winter, and the little leaves will remind me that spring will eventually come.

Maxine S said...

Wow, what an amazing giveaway! I love this collection - you're absolutely right when you say it's impossible to pick just one favourite design. My top three are the Oak Trail hat, Wrapped in Leaves and Autumn's End. I adore your version of Autumn's End - your DD and your knitting are both beautiful! Thanks for the great giveaway :)

Emily said...

Buds & Blooms, Twigs & Willows, and Entangled Vines!

Wow, what an incredible collection of patterns (and great giveaway)! My favorites are Autumn's End, Forest Floor, and the Ivy Trellis Socks.

Dianna said...

I've been waiting to buy this collection because I just love the Buds and Blooms sweater. If I had to choose one, that would be it. Of course, I'd also like to knit Autumn's End. Sigh . . . big sigh!

Desiree said...

I love all the patterns but if I had to pick three I would choose Buds & Blooms, Ivy Trellis Sock and Wrapped in Leaves! Thanks for the amazing give-a-way!

Donna T said...

I hope I win! My favorites are: Twin Leaf Loop, Wrapped in Leaves, and Autumn's End.

katherinelynn_04 said...

My favorites are Oak Trail and Pressed Leaves. I'm very into hats right now as I currently don't have any that fit my gigantic head!

Amy said...

Wonderful giveaway - thank you! My favs are: entangled vines, ivy trelus socks, and wrapped in leaves.

Amy said...

The only patterns I don't really care for in this collection are little leaves, and wrapped in leaves. The rest, I would be all over!

Melissa Martinez said...

My uber fave is the Oak Trail hat!
Melissa

Andrea said...

Can I just say I want to knit all of them? I guess if I was truly pressed to choose only three I'd go with the Pressed Leaves Beret, Spring Foliage mitts, and the Autumn's End pullover.

dappleapple said...

It is impossible to choose only one favorite! They're all beautiful. I love Autumn's End, Entangled Vines, and the Ivy Trellis socks. Gorgeous!

Kerri said...

I was so excited when I saw the patterns for the book popping up on rav! Can i just say i want to knit ALL of the sweaters? All. Of. Them. But if I could only knit one, it would have to be the Twigs and Willows cardigan. Alana's designs are amazing, so thank you for this wonderful chance to win!

ST said...

Such a sweet give-away and such a lovely collection of patterns. Autumn's end is my first-pick pattern, closely followed by Ivy Trellis socks and the Oak Trail hat. Oh, if only life offered more time for knitting!

All the best,

st

melissa said...

Easily Autumn's End. They're all really nice but that sweater is just so beautiful.

Lea Vollmer said...

I absolutely love this book! I don't know if I could pick 3 - but I'll try! Let's see... definitely Autumn's End, and Wrapped in Leaves plus Twin Leaf Loop. I like 'em all!

Karin Ishibashi said...

So pretty! Love the samples of Pressed Leaves, Forest Floor, and Twin Leaf Loop. Thank you, Alana, and your other sponsors for a awesome giveaway.

Sarah Nystrom said...

These patterns look great! I love Autumn's End and the Ivy trellis mittens.

Ellen said...

Hmmm hard to chose one ... but Autumns End is first choice and it is tie for buds and blooms and twigs and willows. I would be more likely to actually make buds and blooms but I dream bigger!

Carol said...

Wow, can I list my top 3 in each category?! Ok, to pick 1 from each I'll say Autumn's End, Twin Leaf Loop, and Spring Foliage. But it was a tough decision.

Jan Bode Smiley said...

I've already started the Entangled Vines. Twice actually.... the first yarn I was using had too much cotton in it & was hurting my hands. The yarn I changed to was a lovely Miss Babs that seems to be working out really well! I didn't have that pullover on my list, simply because I prefer cardigans, but I do have some lovely Silky Wool in the stash, so may add that to my list too!

I was actually looking at these awhile back, and knew I'd have to look into knitting the Ivy Trellis Mitts, the Ivy Trellis Socks, and the Spring Foliage mitts for my mom and MiL... Then again, these don't look overwhelmingly "women only", so I figure I could actually wear them myself! ;-) Beautiful designs!

Oh, wow! These patterns are gorgeous! And what an amazing giveaway! I think the entangled vines cardi is my favorite, although I also love Autumn's End. I love that it has that stripe of plan stockinette down the side to keep the pattern from being just too much!

Andrea said...

The first SWEATER pattern I really wanted to knit was Budds and Blooms but after seeing your Autumn Vines, I'm thinking that may be the first. Now the first ACCESSORY I think I'll be knitting is Oak Trail.

Brenda said...

Wonderful giveaway! I would choose Autumn's End, Pressed Leaves, and Oak Trail. But they're all beautiful.

I'm dying to knit Autumns End!

Your Autumn's End is so pretty, I want to make one! The Ivy Trellis Socks are really gorgeous as well.

Her patterns are definitely something to enjoy knitting. My favorite is the brown, taupe cardi which I do not know the name of. Her patterns have such a polished look to them. THnak you for this giveaway.

Autumn's End, Entangled Vines, & The Twin Leaf Loop jump out at me! I seriously love every pattern, though. My next sweater is going to be Entangled Vines. Thanks for the amazing giveaway! Stephanie (indigodogmt on Rav)

Spring foliage mitts, Pressed leaves hat and ivy trellis socks! Now if only I could knit a decent sweater...

Tamara Kubacki said...

Alana always have some lovely patterns ! I love Oak Trail, Twigs and Willows and Wrapped in Leaves

Jessica Powers said...

I've already bought the book/e-book bundle and have begun plotting! The Ivy Trellis Mittens and Oak Trail will likely be first up on my needles from the book. I need to decide/save/splurge on something delicious for the Twigs and Willows. That was hard!

Kayla Shumway said...

I love all of the designs in this book! But my top three are Buds and blooms, twigs and willows, and the Ivy trellis socks. Thanks for another amazing give-away!

Anna said...

such a hard decision - I would probably cast on a couple of projects at the same time - twigs & willows and wrapped in leaves. Thanks for hosting a fabulous giveaway

Karen said...

My favourites are Twigs and Willows, Autumn's End and Entangled Vines. I love Alana's cardigans patterns!

Kate said...

These patterns are beautiful and it helps that they are done in colors that appeal to me. My favorites are: Twigs & Willows, Oak Trail & Ivy Trellis Socks.

Autumn's End is just lovely, although they are all beautiful.

I love organic/leafy/twiggy designs; this whole collection speaks to my heart. Autumn's End is absolutely my favorite, but Little Leaves and the Twin Leaf Loop are a close second and third!
