For Csilla, the winner is a classic beauty! Willow & Lark yarns are inspired by British design and beautiful landscapes! The Ramble line is made from 100% wool – super soft, hard-wearing and still machine-washable! Definitely a top pick!

The Pattern Winners

Emma’s Sweetest Baby Blanket!

Knitting for her niece has made Emma an expert in children knits! And what better gift could an auntie make than a sweet baby blanket? The Teodora Baby Blanket by N D Design has captured her heart like no other! The adorable design features make this FREE pattern a winner!

Mara’s Favorite Wrap!

There’s nothing better than wrapping yourself up on a mild spring day in the park! For Mara the Blanket Scarf by Two of Wands is everything you could hope for: it’s cute, it’s cozy, and keeps you comfortably warm! If that’s not a keeper, what is?

 Quickest Knitting Project!

The award for the Quickest Knitting Project goes to Merion’s Fastest Heart! Even when it’s not Valentine’s Day, this cute heart will look amazing popped onto a present, or made into a brooch!

Happiest Socks!

The winner for the Happiest Socks goes to The Rock The Party Socks by Trisha Paetsch, as chosen by Chloë! They’re colorful and fun, and can be made from any scrap yarn you have lying around!

Anna’s Honorary Mention: Cutest Model!

For Anna, animals are always winners! And who would disagree? Even though the model for this lovely pattern is not as enthusiastic as others, it makes up for it with incredible cuteness! The Carrot Hat pattern by Sara Thomas is as adorable as it is fun to knit!

    It has to be the carrot hat . When I showed it to my husband , he said I just wanted another cat to be cruel to it !

  2. Paula Brockhurst says:

    Love the malabrigo, just finishing a pram blanket in 4 shades of yellows/orange and it’s so glorious to knit with and a super luxurious feel. Mind you the cat hat is a close second…. might have to knit up jumpers for my chickens

  3. Rosemary says:

    Wonderful inspiration comes from seeing these projects; colour, design, initiative and worthwhile pending time and energy. What more could you want?

  4. Russett Greig says:

    I love all the paintbox range. Just finished knitting 5 jumpers for great nephews and nieces all in stripes and cables in various shades. They were all loved and came just in time for “the beast from the east”

  5. Teresa MacNiven says:

    Love the baby blanket and the sox. They are real feel happy sox and in this awful snowy weather they are ideal to keep the feet and legs warm in the wellies!! I also love ‘ love knitting’ . I’m not confident enough about what I knit to publish it.

  6. L George says:

    For me it has to be the sox !
    not enough colour and joy in the world today, these would be a very uplifting practical wear, with super smile factor.
    Thanks

  7. Kai says:

    Malabrigo – beautifully soft to knit with and the jumper looked fabulous when finished. Sadly on first machine wool wash it shrank! so be extra careful with this wool. Not only that however, the colour is still running running out after the 5th wash – I would certainly not recommend mixing colours based on my experience with the emerald colour.

  8. Ann Harrison says:

    Love, love, love the Paintbox yarns, beautiful, vibrant colours, soft, hard wearing wool, I use it often, recent knits with it have included a DK Baby Blanket, 25 pairs of Aran Hand Warmers (Chrisas Presents) 2 Aran Jumpers & a baby layette set

  9. jenny muxlow says:

    the socks are fab. might try to knit some with grippy soles for pilates

  10. Pauline Sonnex says:

    I have to agree the sox are just great. I have knitted for the last 72 years and love colour and pattern or lace work the best. Colour in our lives makes the world a happier place. I love to knit in pure wools or silk and bamboo, do not like acyrlic yarns of any sort.

  11. Jennifer Tipler says:

    Just love A Cat in a Hat.! Am about to knit a cowl for my daughter in Zimbabwe in the apple green Malabrigo. Hope it won’t shrink?
