New Yarn & A Giveaway!

I was browsing around the yarn store a few months back and came across this gorgeous yarn from Berroco. As it hung on the wall, it instantly made me think of the sea with its blend of colors and wildlife....

I bought two skeins with the thought of making a small project - cowl? Hat? But, she hasn't spoken to me yet and I am, thus, stumped.

So, how about you join me in the first step of the design process and win a prize at the same time?

Leave a comment below telling me what I should make with this yarn and be entered to win a digital download of my Legato Shawl Pattern! You have until Wednesday morning, 9am MST, to share your thoughts. I'll make a random drawing around 10am, so check back here (this exact post) for the update! To boot, one lucky commenter may be randomly selected to win a copy of the finished pattern I make with it.... wink.

WINNER ANNOUNCED! Congratulations to Amy! I'll be emailing you soon with your free Legato Pattern! 


  1. I think something that pretty needs to be something simple, to appreciate the colors; maybe a simple seed stitch scarf? Or a pretty plain scarf with a cable? :)

  2. A cowl, maybe a long one. I love that yarn.

  3. Definitely something simple, so many of your beautiful lace patterns wouldn't be shown to their best with a yarn so busy, but a simple pattern will let the yarn shine. Probably a a scarf. :)

  4. Some little booties for this fall for Baby Eva, like a totally girly mary jane but in those great not-traditionally-girl colors.

  5. I vote cowl or scarf too. It needs to be something with rather plain stitches to really show off the pretty colors. Love it!

  6. Ditto a cowl, a nice wide, slouchy one. That yarn looks so drapey and cozy, it'd be like wearing a blanket around. Not that I'd want to do that in *this* weather, but yk...
