Introducing: Moonshine

by Susan on February 28, 2013

UPDATE Many of the Moonshine Patterns are now available as digital downloads on our website! See all the Moonshine patterns you can buy right now!

Can you believe it’s time to introduce our Spring/Summer 2013 yarns and collections already? Me neither! I swear to God, it was just Christmas ten minutes ago. Time marches on, I guess…

I am awfully excited to tell you about our new yarn for Spring called Moonshine. Moonshine is 40% Wool, 40% Alpaca, 20% Silk and it is just a dream to knit with. The colors are lovely as well.Juniper Moon Farm's Moonshine, available at Haus of Yarn.

They all look SO beautiful, and I’m thrilled to see the sweater I test-knit made the cover (grin). This yarn was absolutely a delight to work with–incredibly soft and just gorgeous, gorgeous stuff.

2 Fran February 28, 2013 at 4:38 pm

Lovely, lovely, lovely, is it in the shops yet??? I am heading to St. Simons Island tomorrow, the knit shop there carries your ‘stuff’. I may have to pick up a skein or two… or at least pet it!! haha.

3 Lauria February 28, 2013 at 6:30 pm

Fran, it is arriving in shops now! No guarantees that every shop that stocks JMF yarn will have it yet, but we’re seeing photos of yarn displays!

4 Susan February 28, 2013 at 4:41 pm

Is there a link for shops that carry moonshine yarn? Am I just being slow, how can you purchase the patterns?

5 Lauria February 28, 2013 at 6:29 pm

Hi Susan, the yarns are available in LYS. To find a store near you, go to knittingfever.com/stores , click on Find a store selling a particular brand, select “Juniper Moon Farm” and put in your zip code. You may wish to give them a call to see if they’ve gotten in their Spring shipment. They also sell the pattern booklets. JMF doesn’t sell the yarn or pattern booklets themselves.

6 Anna February 28, 2013 at 5:55 pm

Anthe is speaking to me! And maybe as a scarf instead??

7 Lauria February 28, 2013 at 6:26 pm

Anna, I think Anthe would make a Great scarf! It’s a very simple textured-pattern that I’m sure you could easily adapt into a scarf.

8 Erin L February 28, 2013 at 6:01 pm

Phoebe and Carme are my faves and both have been favorited.

9 Emily February 28, 2013 at 6:02 pm

Love the Phoebe Cardigan, pinned on Pinterest and queued on Ravelry!

10 Debbie February 28, 2013 at 6:05 pm

Iocaste Top looks like a great knit!

11 Lyn February 28, 2013 at 6:06 pm

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! I can’t wait to cast on both Elara and Carme! I just love Ruth Garcia-Alcantuds designs and am incredibly grateful for her designing with larger women in mind as well! Eeeep! I’m so excited to see Moonshine in person, the colors look just wonderful!!

12 Cindy February 28, 2013 at 6:11 pm

I like the Anthe shawl, but I think that’s because I’m on a shawl kick right now. They’re all lovely.

13 Melissa February 28, 2013 at 6:19 pm

I think I would start with the Lysithea scarf. I love the texture!

14 Flarkin February 28, 2013 at 6:26 pm

I am torn between the Calliope vest and the Amalthea cowl.

15 Torre February 28, 2013 at 6:28 pm

I’m totally wanting this cowl: Amalthea
And I love the mitts and the scarf!
And phoebe cardigan is gorgeous! And the Calliope vest.

16 Heather February 28, 2013 at 6:28 pm

I would have to flip a coin between Dione and Elara; that is if you are making me choose:)

17 Sarah V. February 28, 2013 at 6:31 pm

Hard to choose of course, but I think I’d start with the Mathilde hat! :)

18 Beverly February 28, 2013 at 6:33 pm

It is so hard to make a choice but I think that Carme is first choice. Or maybe Anthe. Now I am really sorry that my schedule did not allow me to test knit in this round. But I will not let that happen again–clear the decks!

19 Tamara February 28, 2013 at 6:35 pm

I would love to do the Phoebe Cardigan and Ida Mitts! Thanks!

20 Kathleen Getler February 28, 2013 at 6:35 pm

I think would make a beautiful shawl. Can’t wait to use this yarn.

21 Anne G February 28, 2013 at 6:36 pm

OMG – I would sooooo knit a wrap to wear to my daughter’s college graduation this summer! Please randomly pick ME!

22 Jessica February 28, 2013 at 6:37 pm

The yarn is beautiful! And the Phoebe cardigan is super cute! Love!

23 marci February 28, 2013 at 6:38 pm

I’ve already knit Calliope, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this yarn. Dione is up next!

24 Nancy P February 28, 2013 at 6:38 pm

I would weave a beautiful scarf.

25 Karin in Seattle February 28, 2013 at 6:38 pm

Love Phoebe. But am also thinking about Carme. No, definitely Phoebe. or, . . .

26 Alyson February 28, 2013 at 6:41 pm

Phoebe!!! But I’m not sure if it’s because I love the sweater or am in love with the skirt….

27 Anne Clark February 28, 2013 at 6:43 pm

I would definitely love to knit the Elara Kimono. I just have a thing for kimonos!

28 Trish Newton February 28, 2013 at 6:44 pm

Hat, Cowl & Scarf i cannot seem to get out of Winter mode but if i do these now i’ll have them for Christmas next season :-)

I’m also starting a crochet along with your Herriot tomorrow at my local in Coeur d’Alene. Really looking forward to it.

I have to say just LOVE everything i touch from JMF :-)

29 Patricia February 28, 2013 at 6:46 pm

I love the Eugenia cape let and the Ida mitts! They would be the first things I’d knit.
The colors of Moonshine are beautiful!

30 Marla February 28, 2013 at 6:46 pm

Carme, no question. The Capelet, however, is very adorable.

I can’t wait to try this yarn. It sounds a dream!

31 Susan Berger February 28, 2013 at 6:46 pm

I love love love the Phoebe sweater

32 Betsy C. February 28, 2013 at 6:46 pm

I would like to make the Anthe shawl or maybe the Dione top.

33 Hilary February 28, 2013 at 6:46 pm

I’d knit Calliope, but it was hard to choose – they are all so lovely!

34 carol February 28, 2013 at 6:46 pm

Carme top for me please!

35 Judee St.Clair February 28, 2013 at 6:47 pm

shoulder cover and/or fingerless gloves for when I’m at the keyboard saving $$$ with a lower thermostat!

36 Dawn Watson February 28, 2013 at 6:49 pm

What beautiful yarn. I’d probably make fingerless gloves first, because I’m in that mode…but a sweater or cami would also be great. I love Calista, Phoebe, and Ida!

37 Brenda February 28, 2013 at 6:52 pm

I would either knit the Iocaste Top or Calliope Vest. I love those two the most!!

38 Angela February 28, 2013 at 6:53 pm

I love the Carme top and the yarn looks positively luscious!

39 peggy connolly February 28, 2013 at 6:53 pm

sounds great to knit with.

40 Rachel February 28, 2013 at 6:54 pm

I would knit the WORK + SHELTER lace striped sweater with this gorgeous yarn!

41 beatrix February 28, 2013 at 6:54 pm

Kimono! I love the assymetrical design and the drape.

42 Lorien February 28, 2013 at 6:56 pm

I’m thinking the Phoebe cardigan….

43 Monica Millage February 28, 2013 at 6:57 pm

This moonshine yarn is getting me drunk with all the pretty colors. Love the pink cardigan…pretty!!!

44 Jenna February 28, 2013 at 6:57 pm

Oh, Phoebe is so beautiful, so she gets my vote.

45 Becky February 28, 2013 at 6:57 pm

Eugenia for sure.

46 Susan (sjanova) February 28, 2013 at 7:01 pm

Oh my. What lovely yarn. I’ve queued Iocaste and Calista for DDIL (she has a new job in NYC but lives in Miami Beach — easy to figure which is for which place) and Elara for, ummm, maybe my niece or, ummm, maybe time for something for me?

47 Susan February 28, 2013 at 7:01 pm

All stunning –my pick is the Almathea cowl.

48 laurie February 28, 2013 at 7:02 pm

OMG- that yarn is so beautiful. I’ve been in a knitting slump, and I want to get my hands on it and start something right now! I would love to make a solid wrap, possibly the parachute wrap. All of the colors are so lovely!

49 Veronica Erdmann February 28, 2013 at 7:03 pm

What a beautiful yarn! I want to hold it and check out the hand.
It would be so cozy in a neck wrap!

50 Julie February 28, 2013 at 7:03 pm

It’s a tossup between the calliope hat and the matilda vest. Nice work ladies!

51 KateK February 28, 2013 at 7:06 pm

I love everything JMF. Seriously, I feel like I live on your farm.
Knitting with this new yarn: I’m ready to start a new sweater project. Too many patterns to choose from. How to decide?!!

52 Tracy February 28, 2013 at 7:07 pm

The Phoebe cardigan is just gorgeous. I’d love to knit that in the same ice-pink as the original. Gorgeous!

53 Nelia Beth Scovill February 28, 2013 at 7:08 pm

Wanting to try a sweater for the first time and the Dione pattern is one I’d like to try. Would probably knit it in a blue or purple for me……
–nelia beth

54 sally s smith February 28, 2013 at 7:14 pm

I would love to knit the vest for my niece!

55 Marybelle February 28, 2013 at 7:15 pm

Oh, Phoebe would be my first choice! It was the first of the patterns to land in my “Favorites” list on Ravelry.

56 Marcia G February 28, 2013 at 7:15 pm

I LOVE the colors! I am a serious lace shawl knitter and would most likely knit Anthe with this yarn. Or, I might knit Calliope since I also love cables. That deep turquoise on the right edge of the pic of yarn hanks looks like a beauty!

57 Salena February 28, 2013 at 7:17 pm

I love the Anthe shawl!

58 MonicaW / moldavitesofa (Ravelry) February 28, 2013 at 7:18 pm

I love the Carme and Dionne patterns, and appreicate that they run into the extra curvy levels.

I have been telling myself that this is the Year of the Sweater.

Thanks for hosting such a great giveaway!

59 Kristen February 28, 2013 at 7:20 pm

I’ve been on a shawl kick of late, so I’d probably start with that lovely shawl :)

60 Kristen February 28, 2013 at 7:20 pm

Still the shawl, but the email was wrong on my last comment…sorry.

61 Adelaide February 28, 2013 at 7:22 pm

My first, but definitely not my last, knit would be Dione. Lovely patterns, beautiful beautiful beautiful yarn colors.

62 Heather J February 28, 2013 at 7:22 pm

I love the Anthe shawl but would happily knit just about all of the collection. It looks wonderful.

63 Sean Riley February 28, 2013 at 7:27 pm

so lovely! I’d love to knit with this!

64 Marie February 28, 2013 at 7:29 pm

Phoebe for Me! What a brilliant application of cables! The neckline is lovely too and that colour! Its all so perfect together. Yup, Phoebe for me!

65 Donna Rae Barrow February 28, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Oh, pick me, PLEASE! I’d give this lovely fiber to my sweet daughter, the knitting jedi, and ask her to create the Eugenia capelet for me!!!

66 Ryan February 28, 2013 at 7:32 pm

Three skeins? If I can get them in different colors, I have a Tunisian scarf pattern that I would love to do Moonshine. Otherwise, I have a balaclava design.

67 Diane February 28, 2013 at 7:32 pm

the Anthe Shawl

68 Deborah Fleetwood February 28, 2013 at 7:33 pm

The colors are glorious – definitely the Anthe shawl to start!

69 Carol Durusau February 28, 2013 at 7:33 pm

I think it is beautiful and I would like to have some. I would make the calliope vest.

70 Elizabeth February 28, 2013 at 7:35 pm

So I’m assuming that it wasn’t at all warm enough for some of these garments during the shoot. Kudos to the models for looking so composed!

71 Julie February 28, 2013 at 7:37 pm

Ooh, definitely that gorgeous Phoebe cardigan – absolutely lovely…

72 M J February 28, 2013 at 7:38 pm

Luggala from Twist Collective. I think it would be perfect.

73 Susan L February 28, 2013 at 7:39 pm

OooOooooo! Phoebe would be the first thing I’d knit. So pretty!

74 elsie February 28, 2013 at 7:39 pm

Seriously? We have to choose just one? I would start four or five all at once and run happily between them all. Ida, Phoebe, Carme, Anthe and the list goes on…

75 Jamie Henderson February 28, 2013 at 7:42 pm

Amalthea is lovely, but then so is everything I see here. By the way, do you do tours? My knitting friend and I are doing a roadtrip in your area the week of Memorial Day.

76 Amy Scott February 28, 2013 at 7:47 pm

This yarn looks so lovely for summer knits! I am digging the Elara kimono

77 Rachel R. February 28, 2013 at 7:52 pm

I love Ilara – so pretty and so different!

78 Dina Fullerton February 28, 2013 at 7:54 pm

I love the look of the Carme top. My neice would look wonderful in a red one…

79 Jeaneen A February 28, 2013 at 7:55 pm

I would start a sweater!

80 Lisa (lasdcm) February 28, 2013 at 8:10 pm

I ALREADY KNIT ONE!!! This yarn is delish! Next would be….ummmmm…..oooo… Dione! So simple and lovely!

81 Eliza February 28, 2013 at 8:13 pm

Love the phoebe cardigan!!! And as for the colors??? YUM! So rich and delicious and it would be agony to have to choose just one for a project. :)

82 SusanH February 28, 2013 at 8:19 pm

The Iocaste top is what I’d knit…so cute! Picking a color is the hard part!

83 Kathryn Eber February 28, 2013 at 8:21 pm

The Calliope vest looks wonderful in any shade of blue or green or purple or ….!

84 Mary Edmond February 28, 2013 at 8:24 pm

Love your site

85 Megan February 28, 2013 at 8:25 pm

The Amalthea cowl!!

86 Patty February 28, 2013 at 8:25 pm

So Gorgeous! And I love the Phoebe Cardigan – definitely would make that. My birthday is in a couple of weeks and I may just leave a hint lying around the house with your website on it :)
~patty

87 Charlotte February 28, 2013 at 8:37 pm

This is so lovely! Gonna have to find it at a LYS….

88 Linda February 28, 2013 at 8:39 pm

I would like to knit the Ida mitts. They are nice and long, and come in a great range of sizes.

89 Melissa (SheCrochets) February 28, 2013 at 8:49 pm

The Anthe Shawl! In my queue. Can’t WAIT to see this in the wild…every color is amazing!

90 Kerri Boland February 28, 2013 at 8:56 pm

Phoebe cardigan. Maybe in the charcoal? Beautiful. I love how long the sweater is. Sigh.

91 Hanna February 28, 2013 at 8:57 pm

A lace shawl!

92 Linda S February 28, 2013 at 9:06 pm

I like the mitts, also the Elara, though not sure if it’s the kind of garment I could carry off. The colors look lovely.

93 Lisa S February 28, 2013 at 9:17 pm

Definitely the Phoebe Cardigan… so pretty and flattering!

94 Gina Swanson February 28, 2013 at 9:19 pm

I would love ro make the Anthe shawl in any of the beautiful colors of Moonshine.

95 Kim February 28, 2013 at 9:21 pm

Gorgeous! Calliope for me.

96 Ann February 28, 2013 at 9:27 pm

My favorite is Eugenia Capelet, but it’s a tough choice! :-)

97 Linda February 28, 2013 at 9:31 pm

My favorite combo yarn is silk and wool an I love some of those deep colors. Yum!

98 Jane February 28, 2013 at 9:40 pm

Love the look of the lysithea scarf. It almost looks woven.

99 Jessica from Asheville February 28, 2013 at 9:44 pm

As soon as I loose the baby weight, I will knit Phoebe.

100 Newsitian February 28, 2013 at 9:48 pm

Ida mitts, definitely.

101 Cathy (Rav name CZJ) February 28, 2013 at 9:57 pm

Phoebe! I feel in love with it as soon as I saw the back view on the front cover!

102 Carla February 28, 2013 at 9:58 pm

Definitely adding the Phoebe cardigan to my list! Love the details. I’ve pinned to Pinterest and queued in Ravelry.

103 Kay February 28, 2013 at 10:11 pm

I’d knit the Anthe shawl first. I love wraps! But if I somehow developed a seductive figure overnight, then I think Phoebe or Calista would be at the top of my list. ;)

104 Jenny K February 28, 2013 at 10:11 pm

Phoebe, but would need more yarn :-)

105 Cindy February 28, 2013 at 10:13 pm

I absolutely love phoebe!

106 Beth Schmidt February 28, 2013 at 10:19 pm

Phoebe or the Ida mitts. It looks yummy!

107 Herbi February 28, 2013 at 10:20 pm

All these patterns are super worthy of close consideration! Nice collection! I think I would just put the yarn out for viewing and let the perfect idea hit me.

108 Vinegirl February 28, 2013 at 10:25 pm

Love the new patterns.

109 florapie February 28, 2013 at 10:27 pm

I would be knitting up Elara if I could find Juniper Moon Yarns in Canada (hope hope hope!) but instead I’ll hope to win them :) Gorgeous collection of patterns and gorgeous colours of yarn!

110 Helen February 28, 2013 at 10:35 pm

Oooh…..I love the Calliope vest and the Dione Top. I would love to knit one of those.

Such a beautiful color palette too! I loved the blue that I knit with….so many great colors to choose from.

111 jessicac February 28, 2013 at 10:40 pm

Loving Phoebe and Elara.. and the photography is wonderful! Thanks for the chance!

112 Elizabeth Hill February 28, 2013 at 10:41 pm

Since, I am 70 yrs young, I would lke the carne top as, I am a petite lady with a small frame , and need something warm, but yet stylist. Plus, I think knitting with moonshine would be a lovely pleasure!

113 Nidhi February 28, 2013 at 10:44 pm

Phoebe looks very interesting.

114 Julie Thompson February 28, 2013 at 10:56 pm

Phoebe would be my first pick to knit. It’s a beautiful sweater!

115 Wendy R February 28, 2013 at 10:57 pm

120 Catherine February 28, 2013 at 11:40 pm

Gorgeous … love the phoebe pattern!

121 Andrea Hungerford February 28, 2013 at 11:56 pm

I love the Anthe shawl pattern – it would be so hard to choose a color for this one, it would be beautiful in any shade!

122 christina coghill March 1, 2013 at 12:05 am

The galatea wrap, they are all gorgous, but thr galarea wrap i just adore

123 Amy P March 1, 2013 at 12:14 am

Elara is my pick although I love each one! Moonshine looks divine!

124 Ummrania March 1, 2013 at 12:47 am

Carme! So pretty!

Thank you for the giveaway, what a great prize.

125 ikkinlala March 1, 2013 at 12:52 am

Lysithea, I think.

126 Donna March 1, 2013 at 12:54 am

Can almost feel the softness with my eyes! The Anthe Shawl is my choice.

127 April March 1, 2013 at 1:28 am

I love the Elara Kimono, so beautiful and feminine! What a delicate lace pattern. Definitely looking forward to casting on for this pattern!

128 Lisa Stathes March 1, 2013 at 1:47 am

Would love to knit Phoebe.

129 Bri March 1, 2013 at 1:59 am

I’m pretty much in love with the Phoebe cardigan. Yup. Just having trouble settling on which color…so pretty!

130 Michele March 1, 2013 at 3:00 am

Great patterns- the Anthe shawl would be my first project.

131 Arlene March 1, 2013 at 3:26 am

Phoebe first, Calista would be second!

132 Helen March 1, 2013 at 5:09 am

Incredible colors and what a fantastic combination of fibers!

133 Kristen March 1, 2013 at 6:07 am

Everything is absolutely beautiful! I love the Carme top best

134 Woolytanis on Rav March 1, 2013 at 6:12 am

everything is lovely but i fell in love with the Phoebe Cardigan the second i saw the back on the front page :) so would love to make it :)

135 Jenny March 1, 2013 at 6:17 am

OHHHH! I love the Carmie top! So much eye candy…congrats!

136 Mary March 1, 2013 at 6:19 am

They are all beautiful, but the Dione, Iocaste, and Galatea are definitely going on my list.

137 Dorothy March 1, 2013 at 6:28 am

Definitely the Calliope Vest!

138 susanne March 1, 2013 at 6:31 am

What a difficult decision…Carmine, I think, first, followed by Phoebe, followed by …

139 Michelle Stead March 1, 2013 at 6:36 am

I really love the color of the yarn in the Calliope pattern. My favorite pattern is Elara. I’ve pinned it to Pinterest and Faved it on Ravelry! :)

140 leann March 1, 2013 at 7:04 am

The colors are brilliant. Can’t wait to touch/see in real life.

141 Susie March 1, 2013 at 7:15 am

Iocaste or Dione to start, followed by Mathilde, and so on!

142 paula morrell March 1, 2013 at 7:16 am

I would love to knit the Anthe shawl.

143 Jess March 1, 2013 at 7:21 am

the Lysithea Scarf in the color of the Mathilde Hat…that color is a-ma-zing! In a dark coat, the scarf would be a gorgeous pop of color.

144 Courtney March 1, 2013 at 7:21 am

I lived in Heraklion, Crete for three years and I LOVE the names used in these patterns. Makes me a little homesick! I love all the patterns, but I’d really like to knit the Lysithea scarf for my husband. It looks simple enough to satisfy him but interesting enough to keep me from being bored! I love, love, love Calliope and Phoebe!

145 Chelsea W March 1, 2013 at 7:32 am

I love the Calista top! So many great patterns! Thanks for the chance :-)

146 Linda C March 1, 2013 at 7:42 am

I love the Phoebe cardigan:) It would look amazing on my daughter!

147 Cathy March 1, 2013 at 7:43 am

I would start with Ida mitts … An early start on Christmas gifts!

148 Natalie March 1, 2013 at 7:47 am

The Calliope vest answers my current craving for cables.

149 Connie March 1, 2013 at 7:56 am

Beautiful yarn!
The wrap Anthe would be my first choice followed closely by Mathilde Hat and Amalthea. I’ve faved all in Ravelry and will be checking my LYS which carries your yarn this weekend.

150 Betsy March 1, 2013 at 8:14 am

Hard to choose… Phoebe I think…

151 roseknits24-7 March 1, 2013 at 8:20 am

Beautiful yarn, beautiful projects, beautiful pix!
And beautiful models!

My first cast-on would be Iocaste.
It reminds me of a long-ago favorite vest
from waaaayback in nineteen*mumblemumble*.
Following on the heels of Iocaste would be Anthe.
After all, it’s almost Spring, so I’m even more shawl obsessed than usual.

152 Gina March 1, 2013 at 8:29 am

I think the Carme top. Lovely!

153 Mujercita March 1, 2013 at 9:07 am

That is beautiful! I especially want to knit the Phoebe cardigan!

154 Venice Smith March 1, 2013 at 9:29 am

I think I’d like to knit the Carme top, also. It’s so lovely and I can picture one of my daughters in it.

155 April Smith March 1, 2013 at 9:42 am

I am in love with the Phoebe cardigan….queuing now!!

156 Kristina March 1, 2013 at 9:54 am

I love juniper Moon Yarns, so what not to love about Moonshine? I would most likely knit Anthe as lace shawls are my thing.

157 Therese March 1, 2013 at 9:54 am

I am so going to make Carme, but how does this work? How do I get a hold of the pattern? Is it a PDF I can buy? I am new on Ravelry. I singed up to figure out how to get a hold of this pattern, but I still could not figure it out. Help is much appreciated. Lovely pattern’s and the yarn looks fabulous on the web, I am sure it is even better IRL.

158 Kelly S March 1, 2013 at 9:55 am

Ooh…pretty yarn! I am a shawl knitter so Anthe immediately jumped out at me!

159 Annie March 1, 2013 at 10:28 am

I really like the Phoebe cardigan. I’m watching it snow right now, so I wish I already had one to put on!

160 Katie March 1, 2013 at 10:37 am

Its a tie for me between the Dion top and the Phoebe cardigan! Love it all.

161 Marjorie March 1, 2013 at 10:37 am

I would knit the lovely Anthe shawl.

162 Robin March 1, 2013 at 10:41 am

I would like to knit Kimono first. It is beautifully patterned and I think it would appropriate for any woman regardless of age or body type. I like the picture as well showing the model actually active in the garment as a real person would be. It helps me to see how it fits on the body and how it would move.

These are beautiful patterns. The designer uses one color of yarn and this allows the structure of the garment and the stitches used to really stand out. I think it also makes for stylish garments that will hold they beauty and interest for years to come. This is a pattern collection that would be a mainstay in anyone’s collection.

163 Evie March 1, 2013 at 10:55 am

I would loove to knit Elara. It would be my first item with sleeves, but they are short ones. :) off to Fave and Queue on Rav QTWIQ.

164 Noor March 1, 2013 at 11:16 am

Lovely colours! I would definitely start on Phoebe right away!

165 LauraBeth March 1, 2013 at 11:28 am

I love Elara– I’m a sucker for asymmetry.

166 Eileen March 1, 2013 at 11:31 am

The intensely-cabled cowl pattern that’s been hot on Ravelry all this week.

167 Christy March 1, 2013 at 12:29 pm

The Phoebe cardigan. Yes, lovely!

168 Sheila March 1, 2013 at 12:53 pm

I love the Carme top.

169 Kristen March 1, 2013 at 1:44 pm

I love the Carme top and the Mathilde hat. Tough to choose between them!

170 Jessica Anderson March 1, 2013 at 1:51 pm

Phoebe Cardigan! That pink is perfect!

171 Carol S GIBBS March 1, 2013 at 2:07 pm

I love the Dione sweater!

172 Kara I. March 1, 2013 at 2:22 pm

Love Elara, but the entire collection is tempting.

173 Carolyn Kuhl March 1, 2013 at 2:30 pm

I love them all but would probably knit Iocaste first.

174 Amanda March 1, 2013 at 2:35 pm

I would love to knit any of these, but most especially Phoebe. After that, it is hard to pick a second.

175 Rose S. March 1, 2013 at 2:36 pm

I would love to knit the Anthe Shawl and the color shown is so lovely.

176 babs707 March 1, 2013 at 2:47 pm

I would love to make a summer tank out of one of those incredible colors–can’t wait to feel it!

177 Seanae March 1, 2013 at 3:09 pm

I love the Phoebe Cardigan.

178 Word Lily March 1, 2013 at 3:26 pm

I’d start with Calliope!

179 lindacarey March 1, 2013 at 3:29 pm

This is the frist time I have come across your website . I would like to knit anything with your yarn

180 Lacee March 1, 2013 at 3:31 pm

I think the Anthe Shawl is stunning!

181 Beth March 1, 2013 at 3:34 pm

I am thinking the Calliope vest!

182 Jodi March 1, 2013 at 3:34 pm

I LOVE the Calliope vest… I’d love to get that on my needles asap! :)

183 Pamela Fertitta March 1, 2013 at 3:35 pm

Love the Dione top! I would knit it in the pink or green.

184 Roberta March 1, 2013 at 3:39 pm

Oh my! That yarn is SO lovely! I’d knit a shawl for my daughter – she wants something amazing to wear to her vocal repertoire performances at college – something beautiful and maybe just a tiny bit dramatic!

185 Melissa Ravencraft March 1, 2013 at 3:40 pm

Ohhh, I would start a sweater for me. I’m always knitting/crocheting for other people, but I think I’d have to use the yarn on me, grin.

186 Jamie Herron March 1, 2013 at 3:44 pm

Based on my abilities, I would knit Dione first. I would then buy more yarn and attempt Carme. I have decided to only make my clothes from now on and I have fallen deeper and deeper in love with knitting. I love your yarn and I will make sure that I pin it and subscribe to it in every way possible so that I do not have to look far for my next yarn purchase!

187 Deborah Arndt March 1, 2013 at 3:48 pm

I think I would make a cabled headband and scarf set. I just learned how to do cables.

188 Kay Fair March 1, 2013 at 3:54 pm

I would make the Anthea shawl.

189 Joelle March 1, 2013 at 3:56 pm

The Elara is awfully nice…but the more I look at this, the more I think it’s going to really shine as a Lapse of Reason.

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lapse-of-reason

190 Cheryl Lougen March 1, 2013 at 4:06 pm

The Phoebe..it’s amazing front and back !!

191 LadyBugsyJane March 1, 2013 at 4:14 pm

Oh! Yum! I love your yarns!

192 Pam D'Esopo March 1, 2013 at 4:17 pm

This Phoebe cardigan is so pretty-so! pretty! Definitely going to queue and knit it.
Congrats on this lovely collection… PamD

193 Beth Holt March 1, 2013 at 4:20 pm

I love the Phoebe cardigan and the Anthe shawl comes in a close second!

194 Danielle Porter March 1, 2013 at 4:32 pm

Oh my, what to choose, I can’t decide -Anthe Shawl, Carme Top, Amalthea Cowl, Dione Top, Lysithea Scarf, and the Ida Mitts! Just beautiful! Please let me know if and when we can either purchase the e-book, of the patterns. I would definitely buy it!

Thanks!

195 Bonni Nechemias March 1, 2013 at 4:48 pm

I’m up for the Anthe Shawl in a bright springy color !!:)

196 Heidi Mellon March 1, 2013 at 4:57 pm

I would love to knit the Calista top. Beautiful!

197 Virginia March 1, 2013 at 5:01 pm

I think I’ll make Caliope in the lovely vivid blue! Alpaca and silk together–yum!

198 Lily March 1, 2013 at 5:09 pm

I would make the Phoebe cardigan in Swimming Pool. (Queued on Ravelry, I am lilicious.)

199 Connie K. March 1, 2013 at 5:39 pm

I would make the Calliope Vest. Very nice for working in an office.

200 Jill March 1, 2013 at 5:44 pm

The Ida mites are so cute and the Dione top. Oh pick me random generator!

201 Ashley W March 1, 2013 at 5:50 pm

I’d definitely make Elara! It’s beautiful.

202 Jessica March 1, 2013 at 5:57 pm

I am not one to knit a pattern using the same yarn and color in the pattern picture….but I would totally knit a red Eugenia capelet. LOVE IT!

203 jean March 1, 2013 at 5:57 pm

Lovely I would love to make a shawl or vest out of it

204 Jean Ashley March 1, 2013 at 6:06 pm

I would LOVE to knit the cover item, Phoebe. The yarn is lovely!

205 jjka March 1, 2013 at 6:13 pm

This is just says Springtime. Would be lovely to knit with. Thank you

206 Phyllis Dale March 1, 2013 at 6:48 pm

My hair is growing out after chemo and radiation so I would love to knit the Mathilde hat! I also had a bone marrow transplant last August and am doing well so far!

207 Ali G March 1, 2013 at 6:50 pm

Lovely patterns! Phoebe is beautiful, but I love the simplicity of Dione, and would do that first.

208 Erika March 1, 2013 at 7:24 pm

that calista top!!

209 Kristel R March 1, 2013 at 7:27 pm

The Phoebe cardi – so light and airy, I just LOVE it!

210 Cynthia March 1, 2013 at 7:49 pm

I love the Phoebe cardigan and that is what I would chose to knit first. There are a few others I would like to do also. Very cute patterns.

211 Irene March 1, 2013 at 8:52 pm

I love the yarn. I just I wish I had more hours in the day to knit or crochet.

212 Maryanna Litsey March 1, 2013 at 9:02 pm

Beauty! I would knit the Phoebe cardi.

213 Julie March 1, 2013 at 10:06 pm

I would make a 3/4sleeve boat neck sweater.

214 Tera March 1, 2013 at 11:54 pm

Pick one??? I think I would start with Calliope. I would love to have a vest!

215 Cecilia March 2, 2013 at 12:46 am

I’d make Carme – that sweater will stunning in almost any color!

216 Mary March 2, 2013 at 7:39 am

Hmmmm, it’s a toss up between the Anthe shawl and the Elara kimono. The new yarns are gorgeous!

217 Christine March 2, 2013 at 8:02 am

Checking out the local shops to find patterns and yarn to knit Phoebe.Love the colors.

218 tami March 2, 2013 at 9:16 am

I really love the carme top. It would be perfect for spring
I’m squiggi on ravelry

219 Mary (grandmatutu) March 2, 2013 at 9:30 am

Hahahaha . . . That’s me happy! So glad to see all the pattern choices. My LYS has a big box of Moonshine in the most exquisite colors (Haus of Yarn, your pic is good, but it can’t come close to how gor.e.geous this stuff us!) that I’m continually plunging into–can’t wait til it gets on the shelves. Is soooo pretty! I have a big knee surgery coming up, but I think my Moonshine and I will be quite content.

220 Kristina Ruybalid March 2, 2013 at 10:02 am

The phoebe sweater is beautiful! I’d love to make that for my daughter.

221 Pam Caruso March 2, 2013 at 10:52 am

I am a self taught novice knitter. I have yet to sum up the courage to knit with really nice yarn and there is no local yarn store anywhere near I live for instructions or just encouragement. Gasoline prices are influencing my search and seek activities and cutting into yarn budget. I would love to receive this yarn, but if chosen please pick someone else instead, this beautiful fibre should be in expert hands. I need a “warm” to the touch needle. I have limited range of movement in my fingers and a circulatory issue as well. So knitting is therapeutic on many levels. But my needle selection is limited to big box store availability. I would so love some needle advice. Perhaps I should invest in needles before yarn… ohh I am so confused.

222 Lauria March 2, 2013 at 12:25 pm

Pam, do you use bamboo needles? Even big box stores should have a selection of those. Pick up a pair and try them out! They’re in the general same price range as the metal needles, so it shouldn’t bust the bank too much. If you have RA, that might not help, as the “stickiness” of the bamboo might keep things from sliding smoothly and cause more wear and tear. In which case a wooden needle might be better – slicker, but still warm. Are you on Ravelry? I’m sure you’d be able to get lots of great answers there if you asked in the right forum!

And I disagree that the yarn should be given to someone else if you win! Knitting with good yarn can really motivate you to knit and it can be a lot less frustrating than knitting with cheap yarn.

223 Jane Finnell March 2, 2013 at 11:15 am

I LOVE the featured sweater, Pheobe. It’s exactly what Ive been looking for to make for my son’s wedding in Sept. I’d better get busy! Thanks for the chance.

224 Diana March 2, 2013 at 1:29 pm

How does one pick just ONE to knit??? I think the Calista top would make the most sense for me, tho, since we are moving to south Texas this year.

225 Christine March 2, 2013 at 2:10 pm

I would love to knit the Mathilde hat! It’s pinned and queued!

226 Trish March 2, 2013 at 2:59 pm

Oh I know the perfect hooded cowl thing that I would love to knit for my daughter. Or that last cardigan for myself.

227 Kim March 2, 2013 at 4:04 pm

I’m a shawl/small project knitter so I would love to knit the Eugenia cape. I like the mitts, too

228 Liz Maschal March 2, 2013 at 5:21 pm

I would love to knit the cowl as a birthday present to me. My day is March 3rd, so this drawing would be perfect if I won!

229 Kay March 2, 2013 at 6:00 pm

Think I would do the kimono–love the lace

230 Peggy Kane March 2, 2013 at 6:14 pm

This is a lovely line. I would make the mitts and the shawl.

231 Rosemary March 2, 2013 at 7:04 pm

I think the Ida Mitts would be first on the list – it’s still cold, especially in my office. These would be great!

232 Kate March 2, 2013 at 7:25 pm

Phoebe… what an awesome pattern! If it’d fit me normally, that’s what I’d pick! Great looking yarn, and awesome colors… congrats!

233 Jenny March 2, 2013 at 8:02 pm

Lovely patterns! I’d enjoy starting of with the Dion top; just in time for spring.

234 Fran Feidner March 2, 2013 at 9:17 pm

I knit and crochet for charity – mostly baby items and chemo hats for cancer patients. This yarn would be put to good use and be very worthy to it’s recipients. I hope I’ll be lucky to win.

235 Mel miller March 2, 2013 at 9:47 pm

I have taken a fondness toward the Calista top. Although the Ida mitts are a close second.

236 T Gorber March 2, 2013 at 9:55 pm

The Galatea is beautiful. So is the yarn! Congrats.

237 Rose in Montana March 2, 2013 at 10:27 pm

I love the “Anthe” shawl…I would knit it in the teal color. Great collection!! Congrats to all!!

238 Pat Moore March 2, 2013 at 10:38 pm

I would knit the cowl first and then the scarf.

239 Lynda M Otvos March 3, 2013 at 3:12 am

Oh how to choose, the Mitties or the aqua Vest. Both stopped me in my tracks. I will pin them both @Lynda Otvos on my “yarn mostly love” board. I am not as good a knitter as I am with a hook but I want to learn better skills and have learned to appreciate fine yarn. You all have some of the finest.

240 Lynda M Otvos March 3, 2013 at 3:15 am

I Facebooked the Mitt pin and Tweeted the Calliope Vest pin. Someday I’d like to pet your sheep…

241 Lindsay March 3, 2013 at 4:06 am

I would totally knit Elara… in fact, I’m thinking of making it in my share yarn from this past spring… :-)

242 Cat Cackett March 3, 2013 at 6:17 am

The Phoebe cardi! Looks so wearable!

243 Sharon M2 March 3, 2013 at 7:17 am

Love the Carme top!

244 Jane from Maryland March 3, 2013 at 7:49 am

Anthe shawl, you are beautiful! Could adapt and knit in more than one color! Gorgeous!

245 Christina Del Villar March 3, 2013 at 12:52 pm

I love the Phoebe Cardigan, but for instant gratification, I would do the Ida mitts. Coincidentally I was heading over to Green Planet Yarns today! Oh and I’ve posted to pinterest and in rav

246 Maureen J (mljan) March 3, 2013 at 3:36 pm

I’d do Phoebe first, since I’d get the most wear out of it. I’ve queued up Phoebe, Carme, and Galatea, and I may have to add the Anthe shawl. I would love to feel Moonshine. It sounds fantastic!

247 half2happy March 3, 2013 at 8:01 pm

Look at all those comments! Thirsty yarnistas yearning for your yarn, because honestly Moonshine looks incredibly delectable.

I’d love to make Calliope my first piece of hand knit clothing that isn’t an accessory. I absolutely adore cables and would be less nervous about attempting a sleeveless item.

248 lindaran on Ravelry March 3, 2013 at 8:13 pm

Phoebe, without a doubt. She is gorgeous!
I’ve queued it on Ravelry, too.

249 Georgie March 3, 2013 at 10:49 pm

I love the Calliope vest! It’s so classy!

250 Cheryl Scaccio March 4, 2013 at 3:37 am

This a perfect fiber combination and the colors are to die for!

251 Marie March 4, 2013 at 6:10 am

I would love to knit the phoebe… it’s so flattering !

252 Marie March 4, 2013 at 6:27 am

all qued , all pinned. Very exciting collection , might I add :)

253 lisa March 4, 2013 at 10:27 am

I knew I needed to knit the Phoebe cardigan as soon as i saw your post. In the robin’s egg blue. Oh my!

254 Sylvia March 4, 2013 at 11:17 am

Oh, the Dione top!

255 Susan in NY March 4, 2013 at 6:35 pm

I adore Calliope! I’m a real fan of fitted vests!

256 Liisa March 4, 2013 at 6:55 pm

I love Eugenia. Just a little something to keep the shoulders warm in the summer.

257 sara March 4, 2013 at 11:21 pm

Oh, I love Elara! It is beautiful…

258 Alicia March 4, 2013 at 11:24 pm

Oh wow what gorgeous yummy yarns!! And the patterns are so wonderful! I guess I’d pick the Mathilde Hat, I knit for charity and I just love that pattern :) But Anthe and Calliope are amazing too heh

259 Lindacee March 4, 2013 at 11:32 pm

The Calliope Vest is lovely! (I’m going to dream about those sweet cables tonight!!)

260 Melissa March 4, 2013 at 11:53 pm

Definitely the phoebe cardi.

261 chris belgarde March 5, 2013 at 12:06 am

I’m honestly in love with Calista!

262 Zabbers March 5, 2013 at 12:14 am

Oh, the Phoebe cardigan for sure. In that color, too!

263 Purlescence March 5, 2013 at 12:33 am

I love the Anthe shawl! :) Where I live it’s rarely cold enough for a coat, but a cozy shawl is just perfect!

264 Jordyn Dunaway March 5, 2013 at 1:11 am

That yarn is beautiful, and so are the garments made with it!

265 Cait L March 5, 2013 at 1:24 am

I love the Mathilde hat and the Pheobe Cardigan! So hard to choose!

266 farofthewoods March 5, 2013 at 1:59 am

I love Phoebe, very lovely.

267 Shannon Booth March 5, 2013 at 2:13 am

I would love to make the Mathilde hat, the Amalthea cowl, or the Ida mitts, because I can’t pick just 1!!!

268 Alyclaire March 5, 2013 at 2:16 am

Oh I would be completely intimidated as I’ve never knit a sweater before, but I totally want to knit that phoebe cardigan

269 Seacow March 5, 2013 at 2:56 am

Oh, the Eugenia Capelet is super cute!

270 NanaMamah March 5, 2013 at 4:13 am

I’d have to cast on the mitts first because I’d be to excited to wait.
Gorgeous all.

271 rose March 5, 2013 at 6:52 am

The Mitts as I really need a pair!

272 cara March 5, 2013 at 6:54 am

I would knit the Calliope Vest, the cables are just too beautiful to resist.

273 zelator March 5, 2013 at 6:55 am

I rather like the Anthe Shawl, I really love my shawls and this one looks like a lovely knit.

274 StaceyKnitsIt March 5, 2013 at 9:31 am

I’d love to knit the Mathilde Hat. Love that Teal colored yarn too!

275 Anne Marie March 5, 2013 at 9:37 am

Gorgeous! I love the Phoebe cardigan. Perfect for spring.

276 Alice March 5, 2013 at 10:04 am

That is a hard choice. The Anthe shawl would probably be the first one for me.

277 Robin F. March 5, 2013 at 10:13 am

hope I’m not too late-this is my favorite blend of yarns. Hope I win.

278 Lyndy March 5, 2013 at 10:25 am

I like several, but First would be the Ida mitts, to keep my hands warm while I knit the rest.

279 Lori March 5, 2013 at 10:28 am

My first – would be Calliope Vest. Love cables – love vests.

280 Nicole March 5, 2013 at 11:33 am

The Anthe shawl is really gorgeous. I think that would be my first choice of things to knit

281 Merry March 5, 2013 at 11:46 am

I’d start with the Amalthea Cowl but they’re all gorgeous.
wahoomerryf on Rav

282 Andrea B March 5, 2013 at 12:19 pm

Phoebe cardigan would be lovely in any color.
alcbrooks on Ravelry

283 Carmen March 5, 2013 at 2:04 pm

What fun! I would love to knit the Anthe Shawl

284 Lori Houston March 5, 2013 at 2:24 pm

You want me to choose? Ugh. I have to create a list here.. so priorities….

First, Calista – because it’s almost summer
Second, Phoebe – but only because by the time I finish it it would be summer
Third, Elara Kimono because its frigging awesome

285 Carol H March 5, 2013 at 2:29 pm

Choices!! #1 would be Anthe but several of the others are great also.

286 Debbie H March 5, 2013 at 2:56 pm

I love the Ida mitts. thanks!

287 Hasol March 5, 2013 at 6:23 pm

ida mitts are my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway!

288 marilei March 5, 2013 at 6:24 pm

fantasic give awayy. i like the iocaste top the bestest. thanks for the chancce to win.

289 Elisha March 5, 2013 at 10:10 pm

It would have to be the shawl. That yarn just looks like it needs to be something to snuggle with. It’s gorgeous!

290 Reta March 6, 2013 at 6:55 am

I would knit the Anthe Shawl. It’s so hard to chose. I like all of them. Thanks for the giveaway.

Purplefrog5 on Ravelry

291 Stephanie.O March 6, 2013 at 9:40 am

I would make a cowl.

292 Kiel March 6, 2013 at 3:31 pm

Love the Eugenia capelet, although as a relatively new knitter the Ida mitts might be more my speed. ;) I’m MamaLemon on Ravelry!

293 Marsha March 6, 2013 at 6:46 pm

I would love to knit Phoebe and Elara. Simply stunning and so elegant.

It’s a truly beautiful collection
