  • The yarns are so interesting! I particularly like that Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky Sprinkles Yarn in the subtle Bunnyhop or Peekaboo. The Deborah Norville Fashion Jeweltones Yarn range is also very interesting – I’ve never knitted with a yarn that has sequins in it! That would be fun. Again, I think I’d start with something subtle like the moonstone or opal.. but then, the geode or lapis are intriguing and would accent a sequinless yarn option really well!
    Thanks for introducing me to these ideas. I’m not usually one for looking in the more embellished yarns.
    There were also a couple of accessories that I have not seen before like the Cro-knit and yarn guide. I am prone to RSI so might consider whether or not this might release tension in my hands when knitting 🙂

  • I would like the pattern to make a ruffle scarf, however on this occasion I’ll take the Baby Granny Blanket! So cute.

  • I love the Deborah Norville Cuddle Fleece Yarn! would make such a gorgeous scarf!

  • I love Premier Yarns! One of my 2013 goals is to learn to knit socks – I love the sock loom and the Wool-Free sock yarn in Meadows, so lovely and cozy! The Knitted Home book is also lovely.

  • I love the Serenity Chunky Tweed yarns! I’ve made hats as gifts many times with it 🙂

  • I love having a stash of hood basics like the everyday soft! I especially live the neons!

  • Aw, I was very excited by this giveaway since I love knitting, but I have to say that I’m a bit disappointed.
    “emerging trends and ready-to-wear clothing”? the patterns look really old fashioned to me, and the wools are all made of acrylic, with kitsch colors. Even for free, I don’t think I would want those.
    I will stick to my usual yarn shop and to the good old ravelry 😉

  • Just started crocheting. Would love to try the Serenity Chunky Prints for an afghan!

  • The Lace Triangle Shawl looks amazing and I’ve actually been looking for a shawl like that to buy! Have recently got back into knitting and so I have been looking for a nice shawl pattern 🙂

  • The Deborah Norville Serenity Garden Yarn in color “Sea” is just beautiful! I wish I could find these kind of yarns more easily in my town!

  • My favorite is the La Poetique Set pattern! Adorable and there are so many things to choose from!

  • I bet a sweater made with Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky Heathers Yarn would last FOREVER, and I love the colors!

  • I absolutely LOVE to crochet! I actually work on two-three projects a week! That shawl looks gorgeous! And I’ve never made one before, so winning this giveaway would give me the yarn & opportunity to create one for myself! {Which I would totally wear too!!}
