We have winners from our contest last week! Congratulations to Carol Kamin and Mary Jefferson. Please email us with your shipping address and we’ll get these books shipped of to you.

Wondering how the voting turned out in last week’s contest? The majority of you prefer semi-solids over speckles, coffee over hot chocolate, and handmade gifts over store bought gifts. But you were almost dead even on early morning risers versus late nighters!

Our contest this week is for the two books below – leave a comment to be entered. Tell us – what was your favorite thing that you knit or crocheted this year? Mine was my The Weekender sweater knit out of The Uncommon Thread Lush Worsted. (Also let us know if you have a book preference, should you win!)

  1. I haven’t finished it yet, but my favorite knitting this year is the Baby Chalice Blanket, which I’m knitting in Cascade 220 Superwash Wave (Boston color — it’s red and blue). The red and blue are for the Washington Capitals, and the chalice is for the Stanley Cup. The blanket is for parents who like the Capitals. (And I prefer the knitted socks book.)

  2. Has to be the knitting pants I made for my granddaughter. I’d love to knit myself a pair of them! Since she’s only size 2 they were a fast knit; mine would not be so fast…

  3. My Latvian Blooms Cowl was my favorite project this year. The colorwork came out so lovely that I seriously considered framing it.

    I would prefer the sock book.

  4. My favorite knit this year was Baby Nouveau-ne. I used Loopy Ewe Solids in Cerulean. It was a quick knit with fun stitches PLUS it turned out so cute!

    As for which book, Socks for me, please!

  5. Such a hard question to answer. The short feather and fan scarf I mailed off for a present….or maybe the Verdant that I am working on now….

  6. Can I have two favorites? My first favorite was Walk this Way, in Malabrigo Arroyo, which is huge and cuddly and very striking. My second (surprise) favorite is the Strandwanderer I just finished in Into the Whirled in “Inara” for Loopy Knights. I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do — the pattern shows up even better than I expected and it’s awesome and fun! And I would love to have Favorite Socks.

  7. My favorite thing knit this year were the color work sweaters I did for all the grandies. That and the color work hat I finished this morning. Truth is my favorite project is always the one I’m currently working on! Either book is appealing to me.

  8. I just finished Scarf for the Birds and I love how it turned out. I haven’t put up my final pics yet, but there are some in progress shots. I can’t wait to wear it. Doubleknitting is easy, fun and makes a nice, thick garment. I prefer Favorite Socks. Happy holidays everyone!

  9. A beautiful red shawl, Manos de Uruguay yarn, pattern by Wendy Johnson. Thank you for the giveaway. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all. Would love the Favorite Socks book.

  10. Hello All,

    My favorite thing that I made this past year was the Hawthorne Cowl, because I learned brioche.

    Favorite Socks would be my preference.

    Merry Christmas!

  11. I don’t think I’ve knitted or crocheted anything this year (I’m a quilter), but I’m thinking about trying to knit some slippers like the ones my grandmother used to make. I think I found a pattern that looks like the right one. (I knit and crochet a little–but I’m VERY slow.)

  12. I love my Ramona Cardigan made from Malabrigo Rios! It has such a wonderful feel and the green is great for Christmas. The sock book looks right up my alley!

  13. Everything I made this year was “my favorite” while I was making it. I enjoy making simple multicolored hats from leftover yarn for my 16-year-old grandson. He must have 15 or more already but always wants more. He wears a different one every day. He is a swimmer and shaves his head for the winter swimming seasons and found the hats a perfect solution. Of course, he continues to wear them year round for some reason.

  14. My fave is whatever I’m currently knitting, which is the Elowen cowl. The “Forgotten” book looks quite interesting. Happy holidays!

  15. My favorite knitting project was the Stone Point. I’ve made 2 of them and love them both. I use them in the evenings when it’s chilly and my shoulders are cold, while I knit. The book I love the most is Favorite Socks. I love to knit socks.

  16. Since I have only finished two knitted projects this year due to medical problems, I guess I will have to say my fav project was the blue Opal socks I finished for Nick. (I already own Favorite Socks!)

  17. My favorite thing I have knit this year are my Camp Loopy June socks out of the Camp loopy kit yarn that I am knitting now.
