  1. Oooh! My yarn-lusting little heart is doing handsprings. I suppose if I have to choose, I would love a skein of Fyberspates Luscious Cherry.

    Excuse me while I hurriedly work on another pair of socks so I can justify buying more sock yarn.

  2. Having just knit a shawl with Fyberspates Scrumption in Cherry, I think I would love to have the purple to do a pair of gloves!

  3. Yay! :) I'm in love with mini mochi at the moment, so would like some Neptune Rainbow if I win.

  4. I would love to try Malabrigo Sock Yarn in Arbol!

  8. So hard to choose... But I've been meaning to try a Zauberball for literally *years*, so perhaps that makes the decision for me. Yes. In burnt almonds. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  9. I would love to try Malabrigo sock in Indiecita. Thanks for a fun giveaway and happy wool week! (I'm notpanicking on ravelry)

    ReplyDelete
  10. I've never knit with malabrigo, so that would have to be my pick, in Aguas colour (stunning)

    Following you on twitter now too :)

    ReplyDelete
  11. The Fyberspates New Scrumptious Gold really caught my eye. Such a vibrant color - and so cheery to take me into the long, dark winter months! And silk/merino? - mmmmmm.

  22. I love Malabrigo's Arbol - those wonderful brown/orange/golds are spot on for autumn. A lace shawl would take too long to complete, how about long wrist warmers?

    Rav nicknames seem an appropriate idea as a contact point - mine's springlight, it would also be my twitter handle if twitter hadn't insisted on adding a "7" to the name!

    ReplyDelete
  28. great contest idea! my preference is Crazy Zauberball 1702 Little Fox - although all of the zauberball colorways are so awesome that its hard to choose!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Ooh, it's always so hard to pick just *one* favourite! I like the Regia Circus in Artist, and the Regia Arabesque in Cordoba; but I am rather partial to the colours in the Admiral Ombre Tiger's Eye. So I think I'd have to go for that one...
