  6. jen :

    i need this! because … i have desperately tried to teach myself to knit in the past … and couldn’t quite get the hang of it … those tutorials sent me on a mission to try again! and those scrumptious colors are the icing on the cake!

    I am learning to knit and the instructions and supplies would be so much help! Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

    Okay, here’s why I want this:
    At work, we have ‘Secret Pals’ (we have drawn names and give our ‘pals’ little gifts every once in a while). Well, my secret pal specified on her ‘About Me’ form that she loves to knit…so I think this would make a great birthday gift for her – I would give it as a set and include the instructions from Lori.

  28. Simply Stacie :

    I just started knitting and hardly have anything.

  29. Erin :

    Well, crocheting is more my passion. However, knitting has a neater, cleaner, look on sweaters and hats. I don’t know how to knit. My mom tried to teach me a time or two. Now that I am a mother, I feel this call to make sweaters, hats, blankets and all yummy homemade things. So I’d love to get this wonderful “giveaway” so I could get started.

  30. Leslie Mingo :

    I would love to win this giveaway for my good friends Erin. Like myself,she is a mother of 3 and is trying to start up her open little business. I think this would be a great gift for her to help save her money.

  31. rautis2 :

    I love to knit! I knit preemie blankets for the NICU that my hubbies aunt works at in Lubbock, TX. She saves the balnkest or beenies or booties and send sme the story of the child.

  32. butterflyny :

    My mom taught me how to knit when I was 10, now 2 decades later i’d love to get back to it and knit something for her! This is just what I need to get started!!

  33. catriona_sweeps :

    I’ve become frustrated trying to find a ready-made sweater that I like. I’m ready to get back into knitting and would love these to get started with…or is that again?!

  34. LiveLaughLoveCj :

    Ummm Yummy Yarn, tools of the trade, a knitters dream is this giveaway. Everything you need to complete the projects – ummmmm hello! I’m in heaven here!
    I am a re-learned knitter after about a 20 year hiatus and I’m finding my way again. This would be amazing!
    Thank you so much for the opportunity!

  35. noreen :

    I have not knitted since I git pregnant with my youngest (over 4 years ago.) I really miss it. I would love to win because it would get me back into knitting plus those patterns are so sweet

  38. Jennifer @ Quiverfull Family :

    Oh, I hope Canadians can enter! I haven’t knit much for two years, and am trying to learn to crochet!

  39. Shari :

    Ok ! I want it! I used to knit – in my single days, I even used to sell my knitwear. but since getting married and having a baby I just don’t do it any more. about a year ago my neighbor asked me if I knew how to knit, I said sure! Her 15 year old daughter wanted to learn. So I packed up my knitting stuff and took it over. Taught her how to knit and gave her my stuff to use. Shortly after this she moved away and I never saw my knitting stuff again! Recently I have been looking at some cool knitting patterns for my daughter! And realized I have no knitting stuff anymore! Boy I could use this!

  40. Shari :

    just left my comment but forgot a contact email! silly me! I really want it! I will twit now too!

  41. judyv12306 :

    I have been knitting for 50 yrs and a Mom of 6 and grandma of 22 and 4 great grans with more to come. First there is no way I would make any thing for a kid never mind a baby with cotton or wool. If you like the pattern you can cut out the blocking step by using some type of synthetic yarn. (and you can rid the sweater of all poop and spit up by machine washing and drying) Second this pattern is easy knitting but the putting it together is not as easy. Third this pattern requires 2 skills both knitting and crocheting.
    But the contest is great. And I hope whoever wins enjoys knitting many many articles.

  42. endrase :

    This is a fantastic offering. My Nana spent countless hours trying to teach me to knit. For some reason, it was very difficult for me to master. Later, my dear friend, Dafne, tried again, but still, I was not able to catch on. Finally, I gave it one last try after watching DIY shows, and Voila! I can Knit!! Now, I don’t want to stop. I am like a kid in a candy store with all the amazing yarns and fibers out there. It is really getting out of hand. Winning this is a terrific opportunity to add to my growing obsession.

  43. cdziuba :

    Oh It to win this so much! One of my New Years resolutions is to learn to knit. It would be Serendipity to win!

  44. cdziuba :

    Your button is on my blog, I’m very new at this.

  45. molly :

    i need need need this! I just taught my self how to knit and now I need some fabulous supplies to get started on my to-do list projects!

  46. Missesprincess :

    Well, my goal last year was to learn how to knit. I can now purl and knit ~ a basic scarf or pot holder or small blanket ~ LOL. But I am getting there. I only have a large pair of wooden needles, so this kit of goodies would be perfect for me!

  47. Felicity :

    I need these supplies because ?I doesn’t have any and my daughter wants me to make a blanket for the baby she is expecting.

  48. WonderfullyMade729 :

    I need this because my mother wants to teach me how to knit but I can’t afford all the stuff to get started!

  49. peaches41 :

    The tools and yarn are beautiful! I would love to add this wonderful package to my crafting supplies.

  50. holly :

    I need these supplies because I really want to take up knitting!
    hollyollyberry [at]

  51. Michelle :

  53. divaqueenie :

    I love to knit…and am searching for a new project to fill this chilly Duluth days. Thanks for the giveaway!

  54. Plowlady :

    I plan on knitting throw blankets and more to keep AND give as meaningful, personalized presents to family and friends. I truly need to get this started, WANT toget it started, but at the moment, financially, cannot. So, this ‘win’ would help in many ways!

    mariannakeough at

  55. Sandra K321 :

    I haven’t knitted anything since my kids were babies and I would love to start again. I used to love to knit baby clothes because the patterns are so beautiful and lacy looking.

  56. arvard :

    I used to knit and crochet a lot, but when I had my family I didn’t have the time anymore. Now that my children are gone, maybe I should take it up again.

  57. Marcia :

    I haven’t knitted in so long; I would like to start again and make some baby outfits – this yarn and the colors it comes in are just right for cute little hats and sweaters

  58. torinem :

    I’d love to win these because I am just starting to learn to knit and it would be great to have some more yarn options and such :)

  59. Anya :

  60. gmistudio :

  61. barbarabaker :

    Oh wow…this would be perfect for me. I’ve just begun to knit and will continue (I’ve been crocheting for many, many years and have recently started knitting). I would love to have everything I need to really get started on a project, but budget is tight in our home. I’d also love to win for those knights I spend at the hospital (chronic Kidney disease/stage 3)…this would keep me busy!!!!

    Please count me in!!!!! I’d LOVE SO MUCH to be chosen a winner for these supplies!

    I need to win these great knitting supplies because I’ve been wanting to learn how to knit but haven’t yet been able to add the needles into my budget.

  73. Toystory :

    This contest is amazing. I need to get more into needlework …. I stopped when I broke my elbow — kinda hard to move after that. This is the perfect “restarter” kit.

  74. belligator :

    Looking forward to learning how to knit and this looks like the project to help me get going!

    I would love this. I’ve taught myself the basic stitches but haven’t gotten any further than making squares!

  79. Sunnyvale :

    This would be a perfect gift for a beginning knitter in my family.

  80. anyang :

    My 16 year old daughter is a knitting whiz, she has been working on sweaters on circular needles and is wanting to start to do socks. We have been buying needles, a pair at a time as she starts new projects. She could really put these needles to good use.

  81. ChrisC :

    Oh wow, what a great giveaway. I have been experiencing a FLOOD of friends having babies in the next several months, so this would be a perfect project for me!

  82. ang :o) :

    I learned how to knit first but for the past several years have been crocheting. I have been wanting to reacquaint myself with knitting. This would be the perfect motivation. And since I can’t seem to locate my needles, that would help too.

  83. corkrose :

    This would be great for my teenage daughter who loves to craft & knit & could knit a project for our newly adopted niece (cousin)

  84. bethb :

    i would love to win this. such a great giveaway!

  85. mogrill :

    I just started Knitting. This would be so nice!!

  86. Beth :

  87. elliej :

    I am just learning to knit and I don’t have many supplies. Thanks for the opportunity to win some.

  91. jcnemecek :

    I’ve been knitting for a long time-but never made the investment in anything I didn’t need specifically for a project. It would be nice to have a selection on hand.

  92. lifeglutenfree :

    I do know how to knit but I have only used single point needles. I want to start on more challenging projects, so this set would be wonderful! and I really want to make that baby/toddler sweater for my daughter too. It’s so cute!

  93. kdkdkd :

    Well, I have inherited a few knitting books and supplies from my grandmother so I decided to learn how to knit in 2009. So far my fingers are very confused but we are working on it. Would love to win some new supplies to work with. thanks for the chance

  94. kimberfreed :

    Wow, what a great set of needles and hooks! I am an avid knitter and I would LOVE to have these. Most of my needles are cheapies, but I do have a pair of Addi’s and two pairs of bamboo and they are fabulous. They make knitting even more enjoyable!

  95. Sweetpeas :

    Well, I think I need these supplies because I crochet and really should learn to knit. Actually I did knit when I was younger but then sort of drifted away from it. Would really like to get back in the groove and possible make a baby blanket to give to someone special. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway. sierramuse8 at aol.

  98. Melissa :

    Why? Because I want to learn to knit!!!!! There is a knitting group at work and I’m excited to join.

    I love to crochet, and I’m still learning to knit. I’d love to win this set because yarn and supplies can be so expensive, especially the really soft yarns. What a great contest! colorfulcarla

  101. kellyache[at] :

    Okay, it’s true, I cannot even cast on stitches and until my youngest is in school, I don’t know how to make time. Sooooo, I would love this prize for my mom, a knitter who loves learning new tricks.

  102. Shelley K. :

    I am just starting to learn how to knit so these supplies would REALLY be GREAT.

    knittingmomof3 (AT) gmail (DOT) com

  109. cari :

    I need this because a dear coworker of mine has had a very hard life and knitting is the only thing that she has for her that makes her happy. Unfortunately she cannot afford a lot of material…I would love to give this package to her. She deserves it.

    charlies_secret_angel2006 at yahoo dot com

  110. Lizzie :

    I need these knitting supplies because my children keep breaking my DPN’s! Also for these three reasons:

    1. I have been lusting after Crystal Palace needles,
    2. My yarn appetite is insatiable, and
    3. I AM AWESOME (though this may be an exaggeration).

    If I don’t win this, I will surely cry.

  111. Holly :

    I’ve been teaching my daughter to knit. This would be a great surprise for her as she does this herself.

  112. Jill :

    All of my friends knit & continually tell me it's relaxing and something I need to learn (both the knitting and the relaxing). This would get me started! Plus the yarn shown is beautiful!

  113. danosor :

    This is great.I am just learning to knit.

  114. Melanie :

    I have made a scarf, but haven’t graduated to anything more advanced. This would be perfect for me to learn more about knitting.

    elkesten at yahoo dot com

  121. Chris Wright :

    Awesome! I crochet and want to learn to knit, though I have less time than I would like to do so.

  122. carrym :

    I’m an avid knitter (ok, obsessed) but my niece has been pestering me to win, and this would make such a great little starter kit (using the two pink yarns, of course)!

    Thanks for the contest. :)

  123. Lin :

    This is a great giveaway! I am an advanced beginning knitter, and I love any kind of yarn and knitting supplies!! I posted your button on my blog and I am going to follow your blog from now on!! Thanks!!

  128. one6ylady :

    I already make jewelery, crochet, cross-stitch, make jewelry, scrapbook, and quilt. Now I’m learning to knit (my Mom is teaching me), so I could desperately use some new supplies.

    Twittered the contest here –

  129. Sarah :

    Why do I need these supplies? To ease my addiction….I have to have five hundred million projects going at once…and I only have about four hundred million at this moment…*G*

  130. Steph :

    I need these supplies because I am dying to learn how to knit. I see all these awesome projects/crafts on etsy and know I could do it, just need the tools and the resources. With another baby on the way I need something to calm my mind, knitting may be just the thing.

  131. 123connie :

    I want to start to knit so this would be a great tools to start with!!

  132. true :

    Been knitting since 1979 and most of my needles are that old! I knit at least 3 sweaters a season, blankets and accessories. I donate to hospitals and other organizations. But my favorite knitting is blankets for my two kitties. :)

  133. Dolores :

    I think I deserve this kit because I go to Shriner’s Children’s Hospital with my son every two months. I stay with him for two days and I wanted to start knitting because I am always bored while I’m there with him and he’s receiving his treatment. I’m a single mom with a child who has a brittle bone disorder for that reason the doctors don’t allow me to work and I can’t afford buying this on my own. I also wanted to make some nice things for my baby boy Malaki. Thanks!!!!

  134. Sharon :

    WOW..LOVE this contest. I am a fanatical crocheter and am just learning to knit as well…I make blankets for a local charity and for family members..and am now learning to make clothing as well…would LOVE to win this BADLY THANKS for entry!

  135. philosolapis :

    I am unemployed and looking for something special to give to my girlfriend. She’s a knitting lover and this would be just perfect!

  136. 9string :

    My wife hasn’t knitted since she was very young. She keeps saying she wants to try it again. This would be a good start.

  137. toughturtles :

    would be great for my mother

  138. Kathleen W. :

    I rushed over here to enter, because I’m a knitting fiend! I have been trying to use up my stash rather than get some new yarns but I’m tired of trying to match mismatched yarns to make stuff. I’d love to win these beautiful yarns and I’ve always wanted some Rosewood needles. Thank you Unwind!

  139. Melissa :

    My 11 year old daughter is a knitting fanatic. She has gotten very good but only has the basic needles and inexpensive yarn. I would love to surprise her with a kit for herself!

  140. Brandi :

    I would love to recieve this awesome gift. I currently do plastic canvas and love making things. But there is only so many holiday items you can make with plastic canvas. I have always wanted to learn how to knit but cant aford to purchase all the required items, specially if i dont know if I can do it. I live in michigan and it gets cold here, so I would love to be able to make my 3 kids hats and scarves and maybe when I get good sweeters.

  141. turboterp :

    It was my new year’s resolution to learn to knit, and while I’ve already started the basics, this prize would REALLY help me in my quest!

    Thank you!

  143. littlelatina :

    I’d love to start on some projects for 2009 but need supplies

  144. Anonymous :

    A friend of mine has been teaching me to knit. I am working on a scarf. It would be great to have more of my own knitting needles and yarn to make more. It is very relaxing.

  145. trish :

    Well, I’m sure once I’m more experienced in knitting, I’ll have an excuse for more supplied no matter what, but as it stands, I’m fairly new to knitting and only have a few sizes of needles, so that’s why I’d like to win! My two passions this year: reading in knitting. :-)

  146. jaime :

    Another knitting newbie here! And I can only “borrow” so many of my mother’s supplies…

    And oh my god, that yarn is beautiful!

  147. Shannon :

    I would love to learn as well!

  148. Rhiannon :

    I NEED! these supplies as I have too many mismatched needles. I’d like get rid of those and start fresh!

  149. Julie P. :

    I’ve been in kind of a knitting rut, so new supplies would be wonderful! I’ve also joined a knitting challenge.


  150. Jena :

    I had a student a few years ago (8th grader) who used to knit during study hall. She made stuff for her baby sister. And ever since, I’ve thought that I would love to know how to knit; and now that I’m an aunt (and someday, I’d like to be a mom, myself), I’d love to be able to knit, too! I think this giveaway looks like it offers a great way to start!

    My tweet is here:

  151. Diana :

    I just learned to knit this summer and only have a few sets of needles that my sister is lending to me. I would love to have more!

  152. Jenn :

    I have been wanting to learn how to knit forever and this would give me a fabulous start!!

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!


  153. Terri Fisher :

    I need these supplies because I don’t know how to knit, want to learn, but need the supplies in order to learn. The tutorials were great, by the way!

  154. Jeanette J :

    My daughter is having a baby in early April so these supplies would be great to make a shower gift.

  155. Damla :

    I’d like to win, because I want my mom to knit me some chic things:))

  157. Yelowflower :

    Why do I need this? Why WOULDN’T I need it? Can one Ever have enough knitting supplies?

    yelowflower at yahoo dot com

  158. Nathalie Brault :

    Thanks so much!

  162. trisha too :


    I’m learning to knit this year, so perfect, perfect!

  163. jamielu :

    I would like to win this because one of my New Year’s resolutions is to learn to knit. It would be easier to learn if I had some supplies.

  164. Crys :

    My box of knitting tools was lost in our last move and now my daughter is asking that I teach her how. She wants to make something for her little sister.

  165. Claudia :

    I’m an avid knitter and my sister is anxious to learn. I’d love to win these things for teaching her!

  166. samsakara :

    I have been wanting to learn how to knit for awhile now. I think it would be a neat thing to learn.

  167. DEY :

    I have just picked up knitting again – mom taught me many (many!) years ago, but I thought it was much harder than crochet. Now I'm knitting again and love it! I am about to finish an afghan for dd & family, so I need another project! Thanks for the great giveaway.

  168. Kelly :

    I love knitting, and especially with DH working late at night. I left all my needles back up north and could use some more!

  169. Angela :

    I have wanted to learn to knit for some time know. This would help that by giving me all the supplies I would need.

  170. mannequin :

    Finally. I get the chance to tell the world how I have been wronged.
    My sister is an accomplished knitter and I have *begged* her for ten years to please make me a fishermans knit sweater. She won’t (gasp).
    I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands and take knitting classes. Hence, I’ll need tools!

    I’ve sent you an email also but I didn’t lament any more.

  171. Linda and Greg :

    I’ve dabbled in knitting, but would love to become better! Please enter me! Thank you!!

    I am also going to post on my blog about this contest too!

  178. Alli :

    I would like to win because my best friend knits and I would love to learn and join her!

  179. shelshel :

    I’d love to win this for my little sister’s birthday. She borrowed some of my knitting supplies to learn to knit and I’d love to get them back!

  180. Deb :

    I’d love to win knitting supplies. I am not in the groove of knitting right now and can’t say why. I think fresh supplies and this new beautiful yarn would definitely perk me up to get some UFO’s finished!

  181. PeaceLoveMath :

    My first friend in my generation got pregnant in November, and now I am up to THREE pregnant friends, so this prize would be PERFECT for me! I am hoping to knit two sweaters, crochet a sweater, and knit and crochet various other accessories by this May. Also, you can see your button posted on my blog along with a blog entry, and I will tweet it as well. Hopefully that equals 4 total entries for me! Thanks!!

  182. RoyalCheryl :

    I made a New Year’s resolution to try as many new things as I can. Learning how to knit would be an amazing start.

  183. Kenna Rogers :

    Oh my, my!! I am just learning to knit and have just begun to collect my own knitting “equipment” and I would LOVE to win this! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  184. cpullum :

    I am planning a new project and these would come in handy for me to use!

  185. Chryss :

  186. Cheryl :

    I want to learn to knit. This package would give me a great start!

    Thank you for hosting this wonderful contest!

    Best regards,

  188. Sassy :

  189. Cheryl F :

    I would love to have this becauseI already know how to crochet and I really want to know how to knot. Thinks

  190. free indeed :

    I want these supplies to give to my daughter. She recently moved back to our area with hubby and baby on the way. She asked me to teach her to knit because she wanted to make the baby a sweater. (she found a beginner pattern online) So far so good. I bought her a knitting bag to hold her supplies…she was using a grocery bag…ugly…so now it would be great to fill that bag with supplies! I’m off to see what the tutes were on..maybe I’ll start something myself!

  191. barbara :

    how awesome! I never see knitting giveaways. I could use this, I am almost done with my latest project also have a young friend that just started and I know if I didn’t use this she would.

  192. maria :

    What a fabulous giveaway! I need this because I’m stuck in a town without a knitting store and can only find plastic needles and acrylic yarn. Plus, I’ve been snowed into my house all week and knitting would definitely help pass the time. Thanks!

  193. AL&G :

    Love the sweater; can’t wait to try it.

  194. Lauren S :

    I would like these because today when I was reading a book how to help my son be happy, I read that I need to change myself as a model for my son. That will be the only way for him to find happiness. The author suggested that you start small. So I decided that becoming a better knitter would make me happier. And then I saw this contest hours later. All I know how to do is a straight stitch and I’ve never made anything more complicated than a scarf.


  195. Deci :

    I love needlework. I have crocheted for half a century, but have never learned to knit. I figure it’s about time. Thank you.

  196. vwestermeyer :

    My daughter moved into her first apartment and she loves to knit. I would be thrilled to surprise her with this gift!

  197. kbksmama :

    I want to learn but am embarrased, these would make me feel so much more confident togo to someone and ask for help!

  198. Sarah S :

    I would love to win this for my mom – she is the most amazing knitter (and I bet she would make my soon-to-be-born baby a new sweater!)

  199. kbksmama :

    I subscribe through google reader.

  200. suburban prep :

    I love knitting. I have a few knitting needles that are metal and some that are bamboo and the metal ones hurt my hands. These bamboo ones are fabulous and would allow me to make projects for my family. My sister just had a baby last month and has requested that I make a few items for son #3.
    You can never learn enough when it comes to knitting .I haven’t been knitting too long. I started because of a health issue causing me to not be able to do alot and this gave me something to focus my attention.

  201. Mommyhood is Thankless :

    I recently discovered knitting and have very few supplies, so this would be great for me!


  202. Connie :

    I am learning to knit also. The supplies look so exciitng!

  206. exotic1 :

    My mother belongs to a knitting club and can knit anything. Me on the other hand can’t and she is desperately trying to teach me but I’d like my own knitting equipment instead of always borrowing hers. Thanks for Sharing

  207. exotic1 :

    I already have your button on my sidebar. I just love buttons~!

  208. Hannah Rose :

  212. Elizabeth :

    I learned how to knit 2 years ago but I am still very much a beginner. I actually would like to win this stuff for a little 12 year old girl at church who is one in a family of 10 children. She is a very talented any craft she has ever tried and I would love to give her all these knitting supplies.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  219. Donna :

    I need it for my knitting. It is a great set.

  220. Vivian Deliz :

    My stash is almost empty. I taught myself how to knit when I was high school and have never stopped learning and teaching others how to knit. This would be a very nice giveaway. Thanks.

  221. Vivian Deliz :

    Tweeted It. My twitter id is vdeliz.

  222. Tammy :

    I love knitting. I am fairly new at it (only a couple of years), so my supplies are lacking. The bamboo needles are my favorite, and I have been so drooling the turbo needles! Thank you so much for the chance to win such a great package!

  223. Kari :

    I’d love this for my daughter, she’s 13 and just getting into knitting!

  224. Kari :

    I love to knit but have stopped. I would love to start again with baby on the way. Thanks for awesome prize.

  227. pitaharmon :

    Why do I need these supplies? I like to knit, but a certain 13 yr. old daughter (who shall remain nameless) has also picked up knitting and borrows my things. I’m delighted, but when I need something, its stuck in her (what used to be mine) ball of yarn…she’s in the middle of several projects!!!

  228. djgroz :

    We have a knitting group at the senior center and we always need supplies. Thanks for the contest.

  229. Anonymous :

    i don’t actually know how to knit, but love seeing the creative pieces that some of these people come up with, and would love to learn!

  230. dbacksfan001 :

    I am just a novice knitter. Only have one set of needles. This would be great.

  231. pauline15 :

    I have a newly turned 9 year old who begged for some craft kits for christmas last year, so I got her a beginning crochet and a beginning knitting set to try out (OK, well Santa did!) and she is hooked. This has turned out to be a great way to spend some quality time together! This would make our day!

    I’ve been crocheting, but haven’t done any knitting in a long time. Looks like the perfect winter project!
    elissa at huebert dot org

  236. grannyvon :

    I want this for my daughter who is the crocheter in the family. My grandmother taught her when she was little but died before she could teach her to knit. She has always wanted to learn. I read all these comments of I want to learn to knit. Believe me I DON’T. I never liked things like that and now athritus in my hands keeps me from learning it, if I wanted to. Give me a good book and I’ll sit for hours but let my daughter do the yarn work.

  237. alexandrea :

    I have tried learning crochet but I keep buying really fluffy yarn and losing my way among the fuzz! I would like to give knitting a shot with appropriate yarn, and those are beautiful colors!
    I want to work my way up to making a certain hat which is adorable but costs $70 – it might take me a couple years to become good enough to make it but I have a goal and thats enough for me.

  238. Deborah :

    I tried to take a class on knitting, but they cancelled it because not enough people signed up. Isn’t that awful? So even if I don’t win (which I really hope I do), I’ll still find some way to learn to knit and then try out Lori’s pattern. It does look complicated, but I’m not scared.

  239. Jen :

    I would love to learn to knit and this would be the kick start into learning it for sure! I always watched my grandma knit sweaters, hats, scarves etc, but never had the chance to learn from her! This would be something I could do that would remind me of her and maybe she would send me down some good knitting vibes from heaven!

  240. AllieOop :

    What a neat giveaway–I’m always looking for knitting materials and accessories since I knit and crochet almost daily. Thanks.

  241. Anonymous :

    I need this to get myself motivated to finish my two unfinished projects! It’s been so long that I have lost one of almost all of my needles, and the cat has destroyed a lot of my yarn! Thanks!

    I would love to win this. Both my mom and sister know how to knit and I want to learn!

  245. Becky :

    My mother loves to knit. Where she lives it is hard to find supplies. Her birthday was 1/15/1931. This would be a wonderful birthday present.

  246. Kathy :

    These are beautiful yarns! I taught myself to knit at the age of 17, and am now the grandmother of 2 little girls. I’d love to win this collection of knitting items because instead of using my hands to eat while watching movies on my tivo…I thought that I should restore my knitting skills to keep my hands busy instead…Ha! Honestly, I really want to return to my previous love of this craft…used to knit all the time and worked part time at a yarn shop to give myself some “me” time from the kids!!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  247. Leah :

    I would love to learn to knit to make adorably cute booties and hats for the new MAMAS in our extended family! : )))

So far she has been knitting scarves and doing an excellent job. I love her determination and desire to make something by hand!

  279. bndraldy :

    I learned to knit many years ago, but I somehow lost all of my supplies when I moved.

    I am teaching myself to knit – I already crochet. It would be great to have the supplies to get me further along my path.

    I would love these items! Many years ago my college roommate taught me how to knit. I was all ready to make a sweater but the project got put on the back burner. Now that my children are growing so fast, I’m ready to start on the project anew! These supplies would really help with that and other projects I have in mind.
