Tuesday Blog Giveaway!

As we wait for the summer to arrive in Seattle (what happened to Spring?), I thought a blog giveaway was in order. 

All you have to do is to answer a question: please tell us the knitting and/or crochet product line that you would most like to see at Little Knits.  This question is not limited to yarn lines.  Your answer can be anything from a pattern line to bags, knitting needles/crochet hooks, simply put anything that you feel is important for your knitting/crochet needs.  Just let us know your suggestions and we will enter your name into the pool from which we will pull a name . 

We will announce the winner here and at Little Knits’ Ravelry group.  Before I forget, the winner will receive an 8 ounce hank of Fly Designs’ yarn with plenty of yardage for a shawl or a big stole or a light top that will keep your warm without being too toasty.  This way you too can participate in the Fly Designs’ KAL, of course, only if you would like to.  The name of the yarn we will be giving away, which is simply gorgeous, and the winner will be announced on Wednesday morning.  You have until midnight of the 22nd to respond (June 22nd, 2010).

Look forward to seeing you here!

  1. I am really liking the Ravelry stash pictures that I see of Crystal Palace Mini Mochi. So many beautiful color combos.

  2. Wow! You have so much as it is, it’s hard to think of something that you haven’t already made available to us. The only yarn I’ve not tried, and you don’t carry is Sundara. But, all in all, I am quite pleased with the selection (and of course, the prices) that you do have! 🙂

  3. I would like to see Kookooburra wool wash. I like it best for socks because it’s made from tea tree oil, which I’m convinced helps my feet not smell!

    (wait, was that TMI?)

  4. It would be great to have Lopi yarn available — bulky or light, but ideally both. They’re wonderful for making toasty sweaters with lots of color!

  5. You have a great selection already, but I would love to see Sanguine Gryphon, Fibre Company, and other indie dyers! Thanks for asking for input!

  6. Lexie Barnes bags came to mind right away! (off to fantasize about the “Lady B” filled chock full of Madelinetosh yarns!)

  7. I’d love to see Farmhouse yarns, especially Fannie’s Fingering sock yarn. Some organic or independently produced yarns would be great too.

  8. I like that you always carry Malabrigo Lace but would like to see other Malabrigo yarns more often (like silky merino).

    Soooo happy that you are now carrying Madelinetosh!

  9. I don’t know if you have ever had it on the site, but I would love to see Cascade Luna and the Araucania Ruca! 🙂

    Oh and hey, thanks so much for recommending the King Tut Cotton, way back when! I finally knitted it up and LOVE IT!!!

  10. sue- this is like the hardest question ever since you have the most amazing yarns already!
    handmaiden to hiyahiyas, what more could i want?
    claudia handpaint?

  11. I, too, would second Farmhouse Yarns, as the owner is very dedicated to using US wool in her yarn (the wool yarn, that is).

    I also would love to see Holiday Yarns at Little Knits.

  12. I am more and more getting into Japanese style crochet and knitting, so maybe some of the beautiful Japanese craft books and also Japanese yarn (they do amazing cotton lines, stunning textures and wide colour ranges) Avril- I think that’s known as Habu in the US is superb, and also Hamanaka or Richmore maybe. and off topic-Any chance of some Koigu?

  13. One of my most favorite yarns that I wish LK would carry is Karabella Aurora 8. Great colors, great stitch definition, lots of patterns, bouncy yarn, doesn’t pill and is 100% soft merino.

  14. I’d like to see more notions and accessories. I keep hearing about interesting stitch markers, yet all I can find are from Clover.

  15. I would love to see you carry Be Sweet’s Magic Ball. This seems like something that would really challenge a knitters creativity!

  16. I would love to see Lawre’s Laine handmade knitting bags. They have lots of pockets and she is very creative in her use of fabrics and leather. She has started a line of cases for interchangeable needles.

  17. I saw someone knitting with a oval ball shaped wood “handle” that her crochet hook screwed into. I’d LOVE to be able to buy it, but I have no idea the brand and she didn’t know the name of it.

    Ergonomic crochet hook of some sort, but the cutest, neatest version I’ve ever seen!

  18. I’d second Tanis Fiber Arts and Kollage needles. Or better yet, Inox needles! The teflon coating works better for me than the finish on the Hiya Hiya. 🙂

  19. I’m a fool for Rowan yarns, so that’s one I’d love to see more of. But I’ve recently come across a small independent dyer, Neighborhood Fiber Co., that puts out yarns that are just fabulous. Would love to see her stuff at Little Knits!

  20. I’ll second the vote for Tanis Fiber Arts. Her colourways are lovely and her Green Label Aran is wonderful to knit with. I’d love to be able to order it online instead of cramming it in my suitcase whenever I go back to Canada. 🙂

  21. not sure if this counts. it’s after midnight here on the east coast, but not in seattle….

    anyhoo, my preference is for hand-dyed yarn. i wish there was more variety in the worsted-to-bulky weight.

  22. I would love to see more Rowan yarns, Oh can’t leave out the Rowan Mag. Please Please let me be the winner…..:) I sure that would be everyones thought of the day….:)

  23. I’d love to see more of the Opal Hundertwasser sock yarns. Any chance you can find some closeouts on those? I would also love some sock blockers and the Habu stainless steel yarn.

  24. I hope the Hiya Hiya interchangeable sets are doing well — I am a fan. How about some of the accessories: I got an extra set of #2 tips so that I can do socks on 2 circs, and I also got one of their crochet hooks to try, and it is my favorite by far. Not expensive either.

  25. I’m another proponent of adding Berroco yarns to the shop. In the last couple years, their selection’s really grown on me.

  26. And I really would love to see Bouton D’Or yarns such as Mango and Louxor if it’s possible. And also more Rowan!

  27. Sweet Georgia Yarn — I just discovered this yarn and the colors are incredible.

    I’d also like to be able to buy extra tips/cables for my Hiya Hiya interchangables.

  28. Hmmm. Baskets? My stash has spawned, there is now a stashlet/stash satellite in my bedroom. I’ve been looking at storage options for my bedroom stash. Something like the bigger Lantern Moon baskets. Not sure how easy those would be to stock/ship, but plastic containers aren’t all that great for stash that’s supposed to be easily accessible and in plain view.

  29. I know the contest is over, but I wanted to add another yarn suggestion: Rowan Kidsilk Haze. I would love to crochet an amazing shawl from Interweave Crochet, but at $15 per 25g skein it is way out of my budget. LittleKnits always has the best deals and every time I check the site I cross my fingers that this yarn pops up.

  30. I’d like it if you carried Clover knitting products–everything that I’ve purchased from that line has been durable, useful, and well-designed. I LOVE your sock yarn sale!
