  1. Natasha says:

    I would love to make Martinique beach for my mum. And I saw a version in greys on her blog that I would love to have for me!

    • Heather O'Connell says:

      I would totally make something for my mom! She taught me to knit and I would love to spoil her. I heard the interview on Pomcast and now I want to make them all!

  2. Brenda says:

    I would love to have this book so I could try my hand at some of the colorwork. I am a self taught knitter with 5 years under my belt, so would definitely be making some of these beauties for some of my dearest friends…..”Nothing says love like a gift from your heart & hands.”

  3. Lisa of Fresh Eggs Daily says:

    I would make the socks for my friend in New Hampshire. She raises chickens and goats and I’m sure she would love a pair of warm, cozy socks for doing morning chores!

  4. Katie Verna says:

    I love the hat! Bet my daughter would too!

  5. tabor says:

    Many varied ideas here spark my creative fires. I would like to make Martinique Beach or that hat with the chevrons.

  6. Carmen N says:

    I’d start by making them for myself. I’ve already given friends and family plenty of knit-gifts πŸ™‚

  7. Niki W says:

    Fabulous patterns. I think my sister and I “need” matching Martinique beach. Since she doesn’t knit, guess I will be making 2.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  8. Shanna says:

    I make a lot of accessories as donations for local charities, and these patterns would make a lovely addition to my charity stash!

  9. Moma G says:

    I love the fair isle cowl and the mitts – I need the mitts and my daughter-in-law would love a pair too!

  10. Pamela says:

    What a beautiful book. I love the colorwork in that scarf – new territory for me. I would love to make some wintery accessories for my co-workers next Christmas. Gotta get a head start, you know?

  11. Eva says:

    I’d like to knit a colourful Martinique Beach for my sister. But I guess I could like some, in completely different colours.

  12. Michelle says:

    I don’t think there’s anything from the book that I wouldn’t make! I would love to make Martinique Beach for myself – beautiful Fair Isle without the shaping of a sweater. And my daughter has her eye on Take Heart, complete with furry pom pom!

  13. Sarah King says:

    I would several items for myself and for friends and family. So many beautiful patterns to choose from.

  14. Rachel B. says:

    I love every pattern in this collection, but I have been eyeing up the Caswell Bay hat and fingerless gloves since the book was published. I would love to add Take Heart to my bookshelf, and would love even more to add those patterns to my needles!

  15. Jeska Eade (knitgizmo) says:

    I have already made a Take Heart hat for my friend in pale blue with a white toft alpaca Pom Pom on top but if I were lucky enough to win a copy of the book I would knit my yarn tolerant husband a Chester basin hat and make the mittens for my big brother!

  16. Gurnam Kaur says:

    These look like beautiful patterns for gifts. I love to make hats, socks and gloves for my daughter, daughter in-law and two sisters. Thanks for the chance to win.

  17. Aleksandra says:

    Hmmm, I’d knit more than one:

    Caswell Bay Hat and Mitts for my mom
    Chester Basin Hat and Mittens for my husband
    and finally, Selsey scarf for myself (I am so into fair isle these days).

    Beautiful book. I’d love to win it.

  18. Abi Clarke says:

    I would make a hat for my mother in law who has been dropping some very unsubtle hints! πŸ™‚

  19. Elaine says:

    There is a lovely purple shawl in that book that I would love to make. I’d say I would make it for myself, but I’d probably wind up giving it to one of my daughters.

  20. Jennie says:

    Oh the grey capelet. Perfect to throw over everything! The perfect gift for a friend in need.

  21. Vanessa says:

    I would actually first an foremost make the headband for myself. I immediately fell in love with it! And afterwards I would knit some socks for my sis. She constantly has cold feet and loves my knitted socks.

  22. Carolyn says:

    I would make Martinique Beach for my mother because I’m hugely into knitting tube cowls at the moment and she would LOVE it!

  23. Irene Jackson says:

    I have heard so many good things about this book that I think that I shall have to buy it if I don’t win the “Give away”. :0)

  24. Sarah K says:

    I’d love to make the bed socks for my mum and the shawl for my sister. And maybe the walking socks for me!

  25. Molly P. says:

    I would make the “Three Cliffs” wrap for my mom (she loves subtle details, wears scarves almost daily, and would appreciate the weight and design – I know it!).
    Next, I would make the Caswell Bay hat and fingerless mitts for my best friend who lives in Utah (I went to school there, and recently moved back to Washington and I am missing her terribly and want to show her some love with a matching hat and mitt set to keep her warm – head, hands, and heart.)
    Finally, I would make the Martinique Beach cowl for myself. I have only made one small color work project when I was a contracted knitter for a small company. It was a delight to make, and handing it back over to be sold was a sad farewell. I have been wanting to make a colorwork project for myself, and this seems like the perfect one!
    I am eager to start knitting all the patterns from this book – it is hard to choose just three!

  26. Jenny Berman says:

    They are all so beautiful but those socks for me steal the show. Lunenburg Harbor for the win! Simple. Wearable. Fun. Truthfully I would knit them for myself. In some cozy warm yarn. Then maybe for others. Maybe.

  27. Katie Emma says:

    I would make the color work cowl for myself and the cabled headband for my mom!

  28. Katie Emma says:

    I would make the color work cowl for myself and the cabled headband for my mom!

  29. Neza says:

    I’d love to knit the Martinique beach cowl for myself!

    I love the hat and mittens. Would be great for a gift for a family member! Book looks awesome!

  31. Denyalle says:

    Martinique beach would be perfect for my best friend. She loves patterns and bright colors!

  32. Sarah says:

    I would love to knit the Lunenburg Harbour socks for my father (he loves my handknit socks and is very knitworthy!) and the Martinique Beach cowl for myself.
    Thanks for the opportunity to win this!

  33. Fiona says:

    I’d start at the beginning and work all the way to the end, lots of Christmas presents for the family!

  34. Fiona says:

    I’d start at the beginning and work all the way to the end, lots of Christmas presents for the family!

  35. Kate says:

    I have always wanted to try colorwork, so Martinique beach it is! This is a lovely collection!

  36. Sandra says:

    I would knit the mittens for myself, preferably on a cold and rainy day with a cup of hot tea by my side. Ahhh, bliss! πŸ™‚

  37. Sandra D-W says:

    I would make the long stocking socks for my daughter who likes to wear shorts but always feels the cold. She’s nearly 21 but she’s still my little girl that I want to keep warm

  38. Jennifer says:

    I would make the Take Heart hat complete with Pom, for my teenage daughter!

  39. Sarah says:

    I would love to knit the cowl for myself, but can imagine knitting hats and mittens for family also πŸ™‚

  40. Karen says:

    Thanks for a lovely giveaway–this book looks amazing! I’d make the Chester Basin mittens for myself, but would also love to make the Caswell Bay hat and mitten set for my sister-in-law–and maybe my daughter too.

  41. Barbara says:

    I’d love to make a pair of the Lunenburg Harbour socks for my husband. He needs to wear very warm socks because he’s lost sensation in some of his toes and can’t feel when he gets cold.

  42. Tina Ludwig says:

    I would love to knit the hat and mittens. The headbands are perfect for my granddaughters in Alberta and then I would start on the cowl. Plenty to keep me busy for a while.

  43. Asheley says:

    It’s so hard to choose but I would love to make the socks! Winters in Chicago can be so cold and these socks would be sure to keep me warm!

  44. Margot Hayes says:

    From the first piece of fibre art to the last, I cannot not pick only three projects when they all sing to me so beautifully. Please be mine, beautiful book.

  45. Linda Yancy says:

    I would make at least five things just for me!

  46. Lisa says:

    I am 50 this year and lots of my friends are too. So I need to be busy making pressies and the accessories in this book are just the job.

  47. Kaat Neesen says:

    Three cliffs for my best friend as first and then all the other accessories for all the people I love.

  48. Pat Collingwood says:

    I would make several for family and friends but make at least one for myself

  49. Mark says:

    My partner is 1500km away in the cold south east of Ukraine, what better gift can I make for her than a matching set in wonderful warming colour changing swathes of soft squishy yarn?! I might not be there this year to keep her warm but she would feel my hugs everyday that she wore these. I would make a couple of accessories first, then, as a surprise, every few weeks I would finish & send a new one, until of cause it is time to switch to light weight spring/summer shawls. Wonderful ideas & patterns.

  50. Eimear Byrne says:

    Ooh, so many to choose from! I’ve been looking forward to this since first hearing about it on the Pom Pom podcast! hmmm, I think the hat and mittens for me – my promise to myself for this year was some knits for me as last year was all about other people! My brilliant sister who has helped me so much with my knitting journey would love that light grey shawl I think too, and she definitely deserves it….although I might want to rob it back!

  51. grannylovesknits says:

    Where to begin ? So many great ideas, but I’d definitely want to make the mitts, hat and matching scarf !

  52. Becky Taylor says:

    The patterns in this book are beautiful. I would make something for my mam as get birthday is coming up soon.

  53. Krista Hart says:

    I would like to make Martinique beach scarf – I would start out making it for me, then my daughter, then my daughter in law. These are beautiful projects!

  54. miss agnes says:

    I love Pennard Castle, and I think my daughter would love these long legwarmers too, so she probably would snatch them from me. This is a beautiful book and a great giveaway, thank you.

  55. Tina says:

    I love that purple hat. Would at leas make one for me and one in dark blue for my Sweeheart! And then see what else…

  56. Jane says:

    I think I’d start with the Queensland Beach headband – perfect for keeping my ears warm when I’m out walking but don’t need a whole hat.
    Then I’d make the Chester Basin Hat (because I haven’t tried a pattern with slipped stitches) for when I do!

  57. Angie says:

    I think I would make something for my daughter who has really been through it lately.

  58. Chelsea says:

    I am still learning the techniques of knitting and I would LOVE to have the help of the amazing Fiona! Her patterns would not only help me learn more about knitting, it would offer patterns for wonderful gifts for my friends and family..and maybe some things for myself as well πŸ˜‰

  59. Patricia says:

    I think I would make something for myself. Such pretty patterns!

  60. Caroline Margetson says:

    I would love to knit the cable hat for my daughter, she has gorgeous long hair and it’s always nice to see a hat added as an accessory.

  61. Michelle says:

    I would knit the Caswell mitts and hats for myself….after all the holiday knitting it’s nice to knit something that I would love to wear. Thanks for the chance to win, Happy Knitting!

  62. Marloes says:

    I would like to knit the overknees (for myself)! I think that’s lovely with a short skirt.
    I Will knit the overknees in moeke yarns. A lovely yarn from RoemeniΓ«.

    Greets! Marloes (netherlands, Rotterdam)

  63. Hannah says:

    I would make the scarf and hat for my friend who is always working hard outdoors on her farm!

  64. Crystal Fulcher says:

    I would make something for myself and something for my lovely Mom.

    At the moment I’m learning new techniques so I’d be knitting for myself while I get to grips with new stuff then reknit patterns for friends as presents

  66. Audrey says:

    The Chester Basin set looks like a perfect cushy cozy pair for winter here, and I recently learned the joy of two-color brioche from Nancy Marchant so it’s a new skill I can’t wait to practice more.

  67. Carolyn says:

    I would make something warm for my grandmother and maybe some mitts for my grandchildren. Or maybe not – they would just lose them – I’d make some mitts for me.

  68. Taryn Ruth says:

    I would make the Chester Basin Mittens for one of my sisters, and the Three Cliffs Shawl for my other sister. I’d then make the Pennard Castle Legwarmers for myself, and ideally if I could, I’d start early on pairs of Lunenburg Harbour socks ready to be given as Christmas gifts ?

  69. Vivian says:

    I would love this book as I would enjoy knitting all of these patterns.

  70. Julia says:

    I love the simplicity and texture of the legwarmers and I would probably make these for myself. The Martinique Beach looks like a great pattern to really get to Grips with fairisle and would be a great gift for someone truly knitworthy πŸ™‚

  71. Karen Holmes says:

    Beautiful and a challenge – how to choose?…eeny meany miny mo…? Perhaps pointing a knitting needle at the index? ❀️ I’ve been knitting since I was 5…I’m now considerably older but these patterns are all irresistable

  72. Kloe Daniels says:

    I would make a scarf for this 93 year old lady I go to church with. Her name is Sue ?

  73. Lizz Atkins says:

    I would love to make some of these for myself first as this is the year of selfish knitting for me. I’ve not tried much colour work before and this book looks like it has some beautiful designs to try

  74. Sophie McDonagh says:

    I’ve been looking to try my hand at Fair Isle for a while now! Maybe the first test for me πŸ˜‰ If I can do it good maybe for family or friends later. Always love a good Winter pattern.

  75. Patti says:

    I love making things for people for birthdays and Christmas. I’d sure be making most of the projects in here for sure

  76. Erika says:

    I would knit for my mom, my aunt, my stepdaughter and… Myself too?

  77. Jen says:

  78. Jacqueline says:

    I would make the headband for my three daughters. It is beautiful, modern and cozy!

  79. Sandra Currier says:

    The colors in Martinique Beach make my heart sing so it would be my first knit from this lovely book!

  80. Alison Hellyer says:

    I would like to make Three Cliffs for my sister inlaws who is expecting her first baby. She could baby up or use it to cover her while she feeds baby.

  81. Phylis Cummings says:

    My oldest so, who is a United States Sailor and currently forward deployed overseas for the next two years, has only asked me for one thing…to make him a fair isle pattern hat and scarf. I’m am only 2 years into knitting (I self taught myself as a way to occupy my time when he left for bootcamp) and am getting pretty good but have never tried anything patterned as of yet. I would love to be able to surprise him by being able to make his one request!βš“

  82. That German Girl says:

    I If you won, I would knit the Selsey Cowl for my grand niece, Ketch Harbor for my sister, Salt Air for my niece and Three Cliff for me

    I’ll be making my bestie and I matching colour swapped socks – such a lovely pattern – for our next weekend away!

  84. Marie Biswell says:

    I actually make something for me! I’m always making, baking & taking for other people, so I think it’s time for me! …but would what I make? Hmm, I think I’d dip my toe in the self-making by starting with the very first thing.. the headband! Awesome, yes!

  85. Savannagal says:

    I would make the colorful cover cowl for myself. It’s simply gorgeous. Thanks.

  86. jayne rayner says:

    I would make something lovely for my fabulous husband.

    I would like to work my way through it and make something for everyone I love, and hopefully something for me too

  89. Jenna Oy says:

    IΒ΄m sure my sister would love one πŸ™‚

  90. Susan Cappello says:

    My first project would be Martnique Beach since I just learned to color work. After that I would work my way through the book. Three daughters means that I am constantly knitting. We can never have enough accessories in a house with four women.

  91. Anne-CΓ©cile Moreau says:

    Love love love! Exactly the type of knitted accessories I prefer. I think I would knit all of them for all the people I love, just for pleasure ❀

    Everything!! I’m new to knitting so looking forward to many knitting challenges. Beautiful book! ?

    I would love to knit any & all of these! I know my daughters would love the beanie & headband!

    I’d love to make some Pennard Castle leggings to keep my legs warm in winter. I was looking for something similar to make and I love the pattern on these. The book looks gorgeous

  100. Johna says:

    Oh,which one first and for whom? Drooling over all of them ! The book I’d have to give to my sister and buy one for myself, as we are both newbies at knitting!

  101. Lory says:

    Hard to say, but probably make something for myself. All gifted out from Christmas πŸ™‚

    I will want to make everything but will probably start with a scarf for a family member.

  103. Megan says:

    I would make something colourful and comforting for my lovely friend Anna who taught me knit. Despite being in and out of hospital she is always happy to help with choosing wool for projects and when things go wonky. The hats are beautiful so will be a nice challenge for my novice needles

  104. Beryl Tyler says:

    Ooh. I’d start with the purple hat for my eldest daughter – and then probably one for myself and my other daughter too. Think this book is a must have – whether I’m lucky enough to win one or not.

  105. Magdalena says:

    I would love to knit that Martinique Beach for myself, but I guess I could also knit the Lunenburg Harbour socks for my boyfriend and the Chester Basin hat for my brother… πŸ™‚

  106. Liz M says:

    A Martinique Beach for me, and possibly for a friend, because the colours are too gorgeous to keep to myself – and a pair of Caswell Bay fingerless mitts, for me.

  107. Judy Aiken says:

    Love all of the patterns! Especially the Castle Bay Hat and mitts! Wold make them for myself and my daughter in law!

  108. Aless says:

    The name of the book says it all for me-anything to do with hearts!! LOVE LOVE LOVE what I see so far.

  109. Joyce cunningham says:

    I would make everything for me because they are so beautiful I don’t think I could part with them

  110. Helen says:

    I would love to make Martinique Beach for the women in my life (mom, sister, daughter……). It’s such a splash of color and life!

  111. Emma says:

    As I’ve been improving my knitting skills, I’ve been challenging myself to knit as many projects as I can. I’d love to work my way through this book and give the finished products away to some of my friends at college and, of course, my mom. Also, because honesty is important, I’m sure I’ll keep 1 or 2 finished projects for myself πŸ˜‰

  112. Tara Martin says:

    I love all the patterns but would like to make my sister the fair isle cowl for her 50 birthday.

  113. Sofia says:

    I would start by making stuff for myself (great way to test patterns, it’s no big deal if I make some mistakes). Then I would probably make some gifts out of the patterns I like the most πŸ˜€

  114. Val says:

    I would love this book because I have started to knit for my grandchildren since my special daughter died.
    I have found it very theraputic and has helped the healing process .

  118. Cheryl says:

    I would love to make the hat and mittens for my sister in North Dakota, it gets so cold there.
    (and maybe a hat for me, too πŸ˜‰

  119. Lisa says:

    My daughter is the knitter, I’d bookmark a pattern for her to make me.

  120. Liliya says:

    Love the Take Heart hat!!! I already have a pom-pom, so cannot wait to get a book so I can make this hat for my daughter. She is 8 and loves to wear everything made by mommy:). This one will definitely be her favourite!

  121. Jules says:

    I love the Take Heart hat and would love to make it for myself and my friends.

  122. Helen K says:

    Definately the socks! I’m just learing how to knit them and about to start on a pair for myself! My husband is hoping I will learn quick so he can have the next pair!!

  123. Carole says:

    The Caswell Bay hat and mitts are gorgeous, these would be first on my list!

  124. Julie Waterworth says:

    I love to knit small items such as hats, scarves and mitts. They are soon finished and with the added interest of cables or colour patterns these would be patterns to treasure. With a first grandchild due my daughter would love some knits for when she’s out there proudly pushing a pram and baby.

  125. Tracy says:

    Beautiful patterns! I think I’d start with the cable hat set for my little sister. Let’s be honest I’d probably knit a set for myself too. So many cool gift ideas!

  126. cath says:

    Its youngest daughters birthday next month and she would love some warm colourful accessories to remind her of her mums love her even though she lives several hundred miles away

  127. Clare Gould says:

    It has to be the Martinique Beach cowl and I’m afraid I’m tempted to keep it purely for myself….

  128. Yvette says:

    I’d love to win this book, as a fist time knitter I knit my first basic hat ?, was so proud of myself. I’d like to try my hand at some other pieces and I think this book would give me the inspiration. Xxx thanks

  129. Mandy says:

    I’d love a go at the Caswell Bay hat. I’m in desperate need of a hat for walks along the Gower Coast, especially down Mumbles sea front.

  130. Kate says:

    I’d love to make the fingerless gloves for myself – to keep my hands warm when I’m typing in my cold house!

  131. April C. says:

    I mostly only knit for myself so I think it is safe to say that the projects would be for me.

  132. Aurelia says:

    I think I would like to make something for my Dad. Thanks for the giveaway.

  133. Alexandra says:

    I would love to make the socks as a treat to myself :)!

    I would make something for my mom and myself!

  138. Carol says:

  139. Amanda bradbury says:

    I would start at the first pattern in this fab book and knit every pattern and each one would go to a family or friend who appreciates hand made gifts with love and needles ❀️

    What a beautiful book. There are so many inspiring patterns. I’d start with a hat for myself then knit everything else for my 3 daughters!

  144. Mary Ann Cushman says:

    I really love the Caswell Bay mitts and hat. I would make them as a gift for my friend Kristen in an adventurous color, or for myself in a more subdued color. I also like Martinique Beach, particularly because the wrong side is hidden. I had never been interested in a color work scarf before because I was concerned about snags. But I like this pattern particularly in the subdues colors Fiona used for her personal version of this piece.

  145. Caroline says:

    My best friend, only she deserves the time and effort!!

  146. Linda says:

    Beautiful patterns. I’d love to make one of the hats or head wrap for myself. Thanks for the chance to win.

  147. Rebecca says:

    I would definitely make the fingerless gloves for myself!

  148. Tambi Dalman says:

    I would love to make the Martinque Cowl for my daughter in law! It’s gorgeous?

  149. Barbara says:

    I would make one of the cowls to be auctioned during our office fundraiser for the local food bank. We raise over $1000 each time.

  150. Jackie says:

    Take Heart has stolen my heart! I will have to beg, steal, borrow or win a copy! It contains all the patterns I need for the family next winter. I can’t wait to get started!

  151. Kristi says:

    I am currently making my first color work mittens so I think I would try the gorgeous color work scarf first. I am going through a selfish knitting phase because I have constantly been making things for others for so long that the scarf would definitely be for me. Beautiful book!

  152. kristine durr says:

    I love the martinique pattern. I think that I would like to make this one for myself maybe in purples. However, every time I make something for myself, I end up giving it away. πŸ™‚

  153. Elise says:

    This book is beautiful and I want to knit all the patterns for members of my family or friends. The socks for my brother et bonnet for my husband, shawl for my mother, Martinique cowl for me because I’m a begginner in color work.

  154. Eileen Hendriksen says:

    I would love to make something for my grandma, aunt, and/or cousin.

  155. Elaine kemp says:

    A beautiful looking book one you could go back to time and time again. I can think of so many of them I would want to make for so many family members. Oh and a few for me too. I think the purple shawl would be my starter as I love the look of it I think it will be something you could use all the time. I also absolutely adore the colour work. It is going to be the thing I master this year I have promised myself even though I have been knitting for over thirty years so that would be high up the list too!!

  156. peggy mcthompson says:

    Shawls, cowls, mitts oh my which one one would be first. Only time will tell.

  157. LakeladyP says:

    I would love to try my hand at the wonderful colorwork. Who would get the finished product? That would depend on how it turns out, as I would give it to a friend (who would REALLY appreciate it) if it turned out great. If it ended up with “problems” I would keep it for me, lol.

  158. Marcella says:

    I might just make the headband/earwarmers for me.

  159. Virginia Bronner says:

    Since I am a new knitter, I would make something for myself. I want to get most of the kinks out first before I attempt something for someone else. I would still keep whatever I made for myself with every mistake in it. That’s what gives it character. Thanks for the giveaway.

  160. Gaia says:

    Truly beautiful! I’d love to knit one of these patterns for my children and my family!

  161. Tina Corder says:

    I would make my twin daughters a pair of handwarmers each in different colours of course.

  162. Barbie O. in Montreal says:

    Just finished Fiona Alice’s Reversible Cable Headband for my son’s girlfriend so would like to try the Queensland Beach headband for my daughter (who was a teensy bit envious the girlfriend got a headband before the daughter!)

  163. Albina says:

    Martinique Beach is my personal favorite. I think my mum would love to have it, too!

  164. Marilyn Jones says:

    I would love to make the Martinique Beach for myself. There is a Martinique Beach near where I live here in Nova Scotia, so making this pattern would be really special.

  165. Helen King says:

    Awesome patterns! I would love to make these for myself as well as for gifts.

  166. Sandy says:

    Would love do make Martinique beach for myself and 2 friends for our trip to Iceland to celebrate our 55th birthdays next spring would wear to watch the northern lights and topping up my stash in the island shops xxx

  167. Manou says:

    I’d definitely knit something for my sister, she is very picky and I guess a Martinique Beach in lovely greys would be right up her street. After knitting tons for my husband and our little daughter it is time for a gift for her!

  168. Danijela says:

    Lovely giveaway,book looks interesting.I would make something for my daughter,hubby and me too.Maybe even for my mom and brother,some for presents…Thank you for the chance to win it.

  169. deb says:

    What a lovely book! I’d make one of the gorgeous wraps for my Mum and the headband for me.

  170. KerryJoy Dean says:

    The pieces you show look very lovely. I would knit the hat for my son and I think I’d like one too! This looks like a fun knitting book!

  171. Kathy J says:

    I would love to make something from this book for my best friend, Nancy, who is a great appreciator of handwork.

  172. Amanda says:

    Oh, I think this would definitely be a “for myself” kind of pattern book. The colours she uses are delicious, and I love the motifs in her designs.

  173. Rachel says:

    Her style is fabulous and would suit anybody. I’d love to challenge myself to knit the scarf for my best friend and use the colors that suit her personality best. And the hat with the pompom is amazing. It could be knitted time and time again as gifts for family and friends. Her patterns are truly inspirational.

  174. Brandis Standridge says:

    I would make them for Christmas gifts for my unrelated family. I have two best friends of almost 20 years. We raised children together, went to college together and grown up together. All three of us really don’t have family due to death or sbusive/toxic relationships or empty nests.
    I would love to make my two favorite ladies matching sets of these knitted luxuries. One for me as well. Each would be colored based on our very different styles. Then, per our traditions, our photo of the three of us in the snow on Christmas Eve after our family dinner.

  175. Julie says:

    Lovely patterns, I quite like the wrap pattern it would be a great item to knit for friends or charity.

  176. Tish says:

    I have 4 daughters (and a granddaughter due in April) who love hand knits, and they have friends who also love hand knits so someone is always hopping up and down, waving their hand in the air and yelling “dibs, dibs” whenever something comes off my needles! Or leaving patterns or pattern books marked with a sticky note with their name on it, or sending me very unsubtle hits via Instagram or Pinterest when they find projects they love. I have no doubt this beautiful book would soon be full of sticky notes!!

  177. Tracy Schiff says:

    I would make one of the color work scarves for my childhood best friend in Baltimore. She walks the dog, rain or snow and could use another scarf.

  178. Elena says:

    I love to give away handknit accessories. These patterns would make lovely gifts!

  179. Nicola Cashill says:

    I think I would make something nice for myself for a change. Lots of lovely looking patterns in this book πŸ™‚

  180. Kate Mason says:

    I would make some matching items for myself and my 2 little girls! Maybe some nice hats!

  181. Emily S says:

    The patterns are beautiful. If i were fortunate enough to be chosen to win this book, I would knit these gorgeous items for my friends who are not able to knit, so they would be able to own something beautiful, hand made and produced out of love, to devote time to make it to hopefully show how much I appreciate their friendship πŸ™‚

  182. Karen says:

    What a gorgeous book! I’d knit the hat and mits for my sisters-in-law and the headband for my nieces. The socks would make lovely gifts as well and I think I would have to make Martinique Beach for myself…

  183. Pam Bugbee says:

    I always enjoy knitting things for others but also enjoy making myself something pretty once in a while. All of these patterns look beautiful!

  184. Darby Porter says:

    There are so many patterns I would love to make! I would make one of everything for everyone in my family including myself!!

  185. Robin Tyler Saunter says:

    This book, it would seem, has so many beautiful patterns I would LOVE to make!

  186. Franki Oxlade says:

    I would love to win this for my Knitting Group (Knitting Nanas) so that these items could be made for a charity sale at our local music festival.

  187. joyce hancock says:

    I enjoy knitting Christmas gifts, so I would probably make several of these pattens for family members.

  188. Rosemary says:

    The fingerless gloves. First pair for me, then if they turn out OK, who knows….

  189. Kathryn says:

    Lots to choose from but I’m into socks just now so I’d start there.

  190. Linda Calverley says:

    This is such a difficult choose.
    The grey socks are cozy – I’m hooked on cozy socks
    The cable knit set (hat and mitt) would be great for my youngest daughter.
    The faire Isle cowl is perfect for my eldest daughter.
    The shawl . . . well I could go on and on.

  191. Willa says:

    I love all the patterns in this book, and would make them for gifts and myself also!

  192. Carianne says:

    I would definitely make the fingerless gloves for my sister, who wants a pair for Christmas. I’m sure other people would get things, too…hopefully, I would be amongst them! πŸ™‚

  193. Mary says:

    I would love to make the Three Cliffs scarf/wrap for myself. The detail and the length make it perfect.

  194. Phyllis Gaumond says:

    I would love to make a new scarf for my Mom.

  195. Margay says:

    More than likely, my daughters.

  196. Li Estelle says:

    I’ve never made something for myself. I would love to make the hat with chevrons for myself.

  197. Autumn says:

    For me, knitting is not just a hobby. It is a way of life. I am never without a project, and oftentimes I will go to my favorite place and knit, watching the people go by. Many times, people have approached me and asked about my knitting. Some are very young and excited, and others very old and wise. I take out the extra set of needles that I carry with me, and invite them to sit with me as I teach them the basic stitches. It is such a joy to hold someone else’s hands as you show them how to pull the loops through and slide them along, and watch the amazement blossom on their faces as they realize they have just learned to knit, to create. I learn a lesson from each one of these people, whether it is to become more spontaneous myself or to become calm and meditate on the little things in life. I would knit items from this book to keep my loved ones warm, and to give to the spontaneous students I meet as a source of inspiration.

  198. Kimberley Parfitt says:

    It’s all so lovely and beautiful that it makes it quite difficult to choose just who will get what without much more thought pondered upon the many options gifted within those pages! But I can guarantee this… There will be many happy hearts because of the creative process expressed in this beautiful book!

  199. Aless says:

    I would love to make Martinique Beach for myself, having no mothers alive now, no aunties ever, and a daughter who lives in the tropics (hence “No knitting,thanks,Mum.”). I adore cowls because they make me look like I have an elegant neck, whereas I don’t (it’s short and thick….) and I would use dreamy romantic colours, hoping that my greatly beloved of 44 years adores it on me !!! Now, if I didn’t have (literally!!) such a big head, I would follow on with the Caswell Bay hat, but maybe that could be for a future,longed-for grand daughter………

  200. Susan says:

    I would love to make the Caswell Bay hat and fingerless gloves for a most dear friend who is starting her journey with treatment for breast cancer. She is always there for me, and I would like her to know I love her.

  201. Kaethe Pittman says:

    I would knit for myself and for my daughter from this book. We both love cuddly knits!

  202. Gwyneth says:

    Oh, to decide!! I’d make at least five things for the Seamen’s Church Institute “Christmas at Sea”, and probably make at least one thing to leave at the library, with a note saying, “Take if you need.” My mum wants a new ear warmer as well, even though she huffs and says she doesn’t need one.

  203. Sam says:

    I would knit Ketch harbour for myself and Lunenburg harbour for my mum, both in soft pastel colours, then I’d probably knit myself some of the Lunenburg socks too!

  204. Elle says:

    I would love to make several of these beautiful items for my beautiful sister! She is the most amazing mother,sister and friend anyone could have! She inspires me everyday to be the best I can be, and to create something so beautiful and cozy for her would show her that I am trying and that I love her so very much!

  205. CHIU MEI says:

    I will make a hat, and socks for whoever is on my Christmas list, yes I am a slow knitter πŸ™‚

  206. Penelope says:

    How do you choose just one – all of these patterns are beautiful. As my sister-in-law lives in the area where the stunning pictures were taken, I would knit the Martinique beach scarf for her, in a color combination of her choice.

  207. Ellisen says:

    Love the textures of these items. Would make a hat and scarf for my sister.

  208. jenna says:

    My brother’s been coughing since before Halloween. I’m not sure whether it’s stupid machismo or maybe the dope just doesn’t know what to do, but he’s not taking care of himself. Oh well; along with boxes of lemon/mint tisane, jars of honey & containers of homemade chicken soup, I’d like to include a thick wooly pair of bed socks.

  209. Anji says:

    Ash such lovely patterns its hard to choose what to knit. I would knit the Caswell bay hat for my friends 13year old daughter who shaved her hair for a cure for cancer to keep her head warm and because I think it was a lovely thing for her to do and it will be winter here soon. I’d also knit her the Cassel Bay Fingerless mitts to match. I’d knit three cliffs for my best friend of 27years, at least 10 0f the pom pom beanies for local charities to help those in need and Martinique Beach for myself to brighten up the dull winter days I dread and can’t wait to be over.

  210. Rachael says:

    I would initially make some for myself, but there are so many nice patterns I might end up making some for others as well.

  211. Sue says:

    The designs are beautiful! Would knit for “all three”, but a cute hat for me would be first.

  212. Martha says:

    The patterns and colors are all so pretty, I think I’d start with a scarf for my daughter, a new mommy to be!

  213. csillu77 says:

    I love all the patterns! Make maybe winter accessories for my daughters!

  214. Jayne says:

    I love to make and give away my projects especially to charity or gifts at Christmas. However, these are SOOOOO beautiful that I would have to keep one for myself. Now that I moved to a WARM climate, I will have to wait for cooler weather to wear it though.

  215. KATHY D says:

    I have been knitting for over 50 years BUT I have never knitted socks so as I am celebrating my 65th birthday next week guess this is something I should master, So it would be the socks.
    Great blog

  216. Rhian says:

    I’d be full of good intentions of making the cable fingerless mitts for a friend and would probably keep them for myself

  217. Hilary Boyd says:

    I would make the head band on the front cover for my beautiful tiny grand daughter. She is just finding her feet and loves to explore the beach near our home in Northern Ireland but, as grannies do, I worry her little ears will get cold. So, again as grannies do, I gather her up and smother her in kisses – and knitwear!

  218. Ruth says:

    I found several I would like to make: headband, fair isle loop, matching hat and mitts to name a few

  219. Natalie says:

    I think I would make an early start on Christmas presents for everyone I know. Stunning ideas, love them xxx

  220. Deborah says:

    I would love to try my hand at the colorwork scarf. I have not tried that yet. All the patterns are beautiful. Have so many ideas of who I could make each for. Granddaughter, mom, BFF, daughter and the list goes on….

  221. Sarah says:

    Absolutely gorgeous designs! I would love to knit the hat with matching mittens for my best friend’s birthday, and the Martinique beach scarf for my mum for mother’s day, as she was the one who first taught me how to knit when I was young.

  222. Diane says:

    How to choose which pattern to make first!!! My sister just had surgery and the mitts would make a great gift!

  223. mrs doreen allwright says:

    wouldlove to have ago at the martininque beach scarf,ts years since i did fair isle, but my 18 year old fashion conscious granddaughter wants me to try it for her

  224. Charlette says:

    Honestly its cold most of the year where I live, so I’d LOVE to make one of each for my mom and I as well as some other family members and close friends! I would also love to make some items to donate to others in need!

  225. Theresa C. says:

    I would make something for my daughter as well as making something to donate to the ministry we are involved in – Frenchtown Breakfast in the Park, where we feed breakfast to poor families.

  226. Vickie Grogan says:

    I love all the patterns in this book, and I have the yarn to make them! I especially love the leggings!

  227. Susan says:

    The problem is where to start? Subtle, bold, simple or complex? These designs have it all, but I would start with the Pom Pom hay, proceed to the three cliffs wrap, then to the hat and mitts, and back to the smashingly beautiful and bold cowl. I have a friend or family member picked for each………or for a change I could keep something for myself! The joy for me is watching the design unfold, but I love giving and wearing beautiful hand made knits!

  228. Jo says:

    I’ve love to make Martinique Beach for myself and if I start now it might be ready for next Winter!

  229. Yvonne says:

    I love the Martinique Beach scarf. I would make one for each of my daughters and myself πŸ™‚ The hat is just as gorgeous. I could find a project for everyone!!! Great job stunning photos!

  230. Erin Cullen says:

    I would make the legwarmers for my best friend who is on crutches and in a knee brace at the moment so needs help keeping her legs warm!

  231. Jessica Langert says:

    Wow! I would love to make these patterns for my best friends who have been with me through it all and always are looking for free stuff. πŸ™‚

  232. Linda Banfield says:

    Where to start, so many lovely patterns! Fingerless mittens for Louise, my volunteer coworker, she always has cold hands. Three cliffs wrap for me, as that is one of my favourite places in the Gower.

  233. Teresa says:

    I’d love to win a copy so I could make all the patterns. I love making accessories give to family at Christmas and would love to make for charity too.

  234. carol in indiana says:

    What a wonderful looking book! I just adore the hat! I have five nieces, and have been looking for trendy hat pattern. The maroon yarn looks perfect for the hat in the photo above. What a stunning pattern. Thank you for the opportunity to participate.

  235. Vicky Kuruc says:

    I would definitely make something for my grand daughter. πŸ™‚

  236. Patsy Coats says:

    I would knit Martinique Beach for myself.

  237. Denise Mcdonald says:

    I would like to attempt one of her shawls – that’s something I haven’t knit yet. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  238. Barbara Evans says:

    I would make a hat for my daughter-in-law. She left hers in a cab in New York and never got it back.

  239. Liz Bates says:

    I would love to make some socks for a friend that doesn’t knit but loves handknit socks!!
    thank you for the chance!

  240. Anita says:

    I sometimes don’t know who will receive an item that I start knitting until I’m midway through.such a process knitter. I often knit for myself and then my two grown daughters and my mother.

  241. Dani Hartvigsen says:

    I would make a hat for my mom, something for myself and for a friend πŸ™‚

  242. Judith Frey says:

    I do charity knitting so I would be creating knitwear from the book for people I will never meet. Even the pictures are great inspiration for their colorways.

  243. Tracy Schiff says:

    Any of the beautiful scarves for my wonderful daughter who is in college in a cold section of California.

  244. Hilary Bennett says:

    With a daughter, daughter-in-law & 3 granddaughters I think this book would keep me very busy…..&what a lovely book to ‘leave’ on the coffee table to inspire all my crafty friends! xx

  245. Elaine Ziemer says:

    what a lovely book, and the best part is there is something for everyone. My goal this year is to learn colorwork, so perhaps this is the best place to start!
    Or, maybe another hat for a granddaughter, or maybe socks for a son…….so many ideas

  246. Eve Shay says:

    I would love to win this book so that I could knit up some wonderful items for my family and myself. πŸ™‚

  247. joyce hancock says:

    I would make one of these accessories for one of my daughters.

  248. Rachael Drella says:

    I would knit for my daughter, husband, mother in law, father in law, father, brother, brother in law…. nearly everyone I know!!!

  249. SarahJane says:

    Like so many mums mentioned here, mine get cold feet. She also hates socks that “strangle” her ankles so she’d really appreciate a pair or two of Lunenburg Harbours.

    I’d love Queensland Beach for myself as defence against the office air conditioning (and those pockets look just right for notebooks and pens, and/or gloves). I’d love to make Martinique Beach for just about anybody and can’t imagine anyone I know refusing to wear it.

    But then again … I’d really love to win the book so I can give it to my sister. She’s an adventurous beginner, and always looking for pretty and practical patterns to knit. She’d love the patterns as much as I do, and it’d be great to give her something as she’s always so generous and thoughtful with everyone she meets.

    I’ll then have to buy myself a copy, of course. Just so I can help her with the patterns, naturally. πŸ˜‰

  250. Deb Adams says:

    Would make the Caswell Bay hat for myself.

  251. Debbie says:

    The pictures of the colorwork are beautiful. I would love to knit something warm for my sister who is a farmer. She is outside a lot and it would very much be appreciated. I would also make something for myself.

  252. Barbara Vanselow says:

    I would love to make the Caswell Bay hat for my sister, daughter and myself. I love the pattern.

  253. Pip says:

    I could definitely see myself making each of these patterns for my friends, family and myself. I’d have to start by making Three Cliffs for myself though!

  254. Bonnie Avery says:

    I would make the Cable-Hat set. I would make the hat for myself and the fingerless gloves for my adopted granddaughter.

  255. Georgia says:

    The cable-hat set is perfect for my daughters. The cables are beautiful and not too bulky. This set would be great walking around campus.

  256. Sherri S. says:

    My first instinct is, selfishly, to say ME, but I would probably actually make something for my friend who teaches at a pre-school…it gets quite chilly on the playground! Thanks for the chance to win!

  257. MelodyJ says:

    I would make projects from this book for myself.

  258. Donna says:

    First I would make a scarf for my sister, then for my daughters! I know they would love them! I would also make one in appropriate colors for my son. I would relish wining this book, the ideas that I can peek at have my fingers twitching and my imagination going full speed ahead!
    Please pick me!

  259. becky wollenslegel says:

    Christmas gifts

  260. Sally Burley says:

    I love Martinique Beach, and would like to make it for myself – I always seem to be making for other people!

  261. Priscilla Aguilar says:

    I would love to make the hat and gloves for myself and maybe try my hand at color work. Thanks for the opportunity at winning such a great book!

  262. Tracie says:

    Not quite brave enough to try colour work yet – but love that scarf!!! Maybe this would give me the push I need… πŸ™‚
    And it would be the same as always, one for myself, then my mum would want one, possibly my aunt, a friend or two… πŸ˜‰

  263. AndreaW says:

    It all looks so wearable + cozy!!! I think the first thing I would make is “Martinique Beach “…. for myself. Lots of knitting gets done for others, but I love bright cheerful cowls to counter winter “blah”. I wear one every day!!!

  264. Gail says:

    The Ketch Harbor shawl is subtly beautiful! I’d like to knit one for myself someday!

  265. Brenda Johnson says:

    Plan to catch up with my “oldest” friend from primary school (way back in the 1950s) when we travel from OZ to London in July. Would love to make something for her – possibly the Caswell Bay fingerless gloves?

  266. Jennifer Malin says:

    I would make something lovely for my mum and my mother-in-law to be as they mean the world to me.

  267. Em says:

    This book might finally be the push I need to knit a hat! For me first, while I work out what I’m doing and then HATS FOR EVERYONE! πŸ˜€

  268. Maureen van der Hilst says:

    With a large family of 11 siblings and myself I wouldn’t be short of someone to knit for, so with some new patterns I’m sure there would be something for everyone.

  269. Elizabeth Wittig says:

    Just completed a project and would love to do one of these for my niece who is next on the list for one of Auntie Liz’s knits. She would love these patterns.

  270. Pam Southernwood says:

    I’d love to make some of these for family and friends – but would be tempted to keep them all!

  271. Alexandra Woods says:

    The cabled hat and glove set is an instant choice, but I could easily knit my way through the book given the time. An incredible book of knitting in styles I love. Thanks for the chance.

  272. Susan says:

    What wouldn’t I make? Every one of the patterns fit me to a tee. My sister and I knit together so she could make one for me and I could make one for her. There is nothing better than knitting together. Colorwork patterns are our next adventure.

  273. Sue says:

    What an interesting book. It seems to have something for everyone. I would have inspiration to make something for so many people. Would use this book constantly and never run out of ideas.

  274. Hanne Merete Djurhuus says:

    I would surely make something for my best friend, she hasn’t the time nor the patience for knitting but truely admires my knittingworks, she has long been in my thoughts for at knitted gift, and with the beautiful paterns in this book I’m sure I’ll find just the right thing to her. Also my daughter in law must have a beatyful knitted gift, I’m sure she’d love something soft and warm. I have fibromyalgia and a bad stress and knitting has been my way back to a meaningful life after I had to give up working – I’m sure this book with all it’s lovely paterns and inspiration will give me even more knittingjoy, if I should be the lucky one winning it.

  275. Claire Holmes says:

    This is not a use once only book. The variety of lovely accessories would keep pulling me back for more! After the success of my family knits last Christmas, I think I’d settle down with this and knit gifts for all the family for next year – son and daughter-in-law, daughters and boyfriends and even hubbie. Anything for the cat, I wonder?!

  276. Averil Lea says:

    This looks a lovely book. I think my first project would be the headband Queensland Beach. I really need something like this for these windy days.

  277. Lucy Kieffer says:

    Love the textured headband for my son’s girlfriend, and my sister can look stylish in any style hat (so jealous!). Love the gorgeous scenic pics as well in this book!

  278. Kim says:

    I would love to make the cowl and mitts for my 90 year old stylish ready at all time mom! She is always decked out to the nines and these would help her top her outfits out. She encouraged me to learn to knit as a child and received multiple gifts from me over the years! I am blessed to have someone in my life as a cheerleader, coach and fan.

    I’m itching to make pretty much all of them. I luckily, sort of, have a best friend who lives in a Northern climate. The cabled hat and fingerless gloves call out to be knitted first. After that, anything goes.

    My daughter could pull off the leggings. Those have her name on it. I love the socks – so cozy, the hat and matching mittens have winter weekend walk in the woods imprinted on them. The cowl is glorious. The colorwork is so fun and, it would inspire me to complete row after row. I guess everything but the leggings last items would be for me, until my daughter wants to borrow them.

    I love the Martinique beach, and I would make it for myself, because I have been knitting a lot of projects for other people lately, and need to make something fun to wear!

  282. Janine says:

    I would make the grey scarf with diamond pattern for me – but if my daughter sees it I will have to make two!

    I haven’t made anything for myself for about 2 years so I would love to make myself the Chester Basin Hat and Mittens. Quite apt as I live near Chester!!

    Would love to make the Caswell Bay Hat for one of my friends or me! Looks like a great quality book. Thanks for the chance!!

  285. Sharon Howell says:

    I love the Martinique cowl in the second picture. I would change the colors to go with my coats, but that’s all I would change.

    I just started picking up knitting again after a 10 years hiatus. I am about to complete my half finished knitting projects (10 years ago and kept in good condition) and when I saw this book and the wonderful pictures and patterns, I just went WOW. I want to knit the scarf for my mum and hat for my spouse.

  287. Amanda Helen Lagor says:

    I would be making a hat and mitts for my son Dillon who has been living in the UK for almost 4 years, currently in London. Still saving madly to be able to visit him, travel from Christchurch, New Zealand is expensive, so I like to make him useful gifts like socks, hats and mitts and send them at regular intervals so he knows he is not forgotten. Thanks for the great competition!!!

  288. Natalie says:

    I’d make something for my friend Ant who’s magazine subscription club (sub culture club) recently featured the amazing pom pom magazine, as a thank you for interviewing me about my knitting habits for his project. Then I’d probably make all of the other things for various people! Knitting something to give to someone else is so satisfying. πŸ™‚

  289. Tamara says:

    I love to knit for others…so much that I rarely make anything for myself! Maybe some Pennard Castle legwarmers for my sister and a Three Cliffs wrap for me πŸ™‚ Love the colour palette of this book <3
