Holy cow - what a fantastic giveaway! I haven't used the Fibre Co yarns yet - they aren't available at either of my LYSs. How to chose a favorite color - Laguna? Sasparilla?

Yummilicious yarn--the kind that makes it difficult to choose a favorite(and wander the yarn store for hours debating)--never had the pleasure of knitting with it....yet. Fingers crossed! :)

OMG, there are so many comments. Maybe I'll get picked. I've used one skein of theirs. Can't remember the name but it was a blend of silk, wool and I loved it. Used it for some edging on a cardigan. Well keeping my fingers crossed.

Hello

Just discovered your blog and podcast and can't wait to explore both.

I have never used the Fibre Co yarns and it would be very hard to choose a color line as they are all luscious!

sock2girl said...

What beautiful colors, I would love to try this yarn, thank you for the opportunity

Ellen said...

Just found your podcast after buying the Spring Tee pattern on Rav. I am enjoying listening. =)

I've never used their yarn before but the colors are gorgeous.

Ann said...

Sadly it looks like no one in the UK stocks this gorgeous yarn - you are so lucky in the US to have such wonderful yarn producers. I'm always drooling over something gorgeous I've found on line and being disappointed not to be able to find it for sale over here. It would be wonderful to win some though!

littlemaze said...

No, unfortunately I haven't had the pleasure of knitting with these lovely yarns. They look beautiful.

Hi Alana
I am a relatively new knitter, picking it up after my Grandma taught me as a child. I am loving discovering knitting podcasts and yours was one of the first I tried - I have downloaded ass of the episodes and am working my was through them. I know you are now taking a break but I look forward to your return - hopefully all the backissues will keep me going until then!! I live in the UK so am limited to the amount and tyoe of yarns that you guys have over the pond and would love to win some of the yarn you talked about. I hope that you find a good balance for all the activities you undertake. God Bless Caroline

mrsmouse said...

(I tried again and it worked this time. Thanks!)

I just found your podcast, and since I enjoyed it very much I'm extremely glad to hear you'll be continuing to podcast into this year. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to win Vintage Modern Knits and Fibre Company yarns. I've not used that yarn before, so if I were to win it would be my first time to use it. But based on your interview, it sounds like a lovely yarn to win. My favorite colors are always blues, and you can find me on Ravelry as mrsmouse. Best of luck to all, and thank you again for a lovely podcast.

Fran said...

I enjoyed the interview with Kate and Courtney a lot. Have not used Fiber Company yarn before, but from your photos, I'm loving those greeny/bluey colors! Thanks for the giveaway.

I've not tried it, but on top of the list. Love the patterns, too!
