Help Me Plan for the Future!

Thanks to everyone who completed my surveys! It’s a really big help to hear from you this way :-D. The winners of the random drawing for a skein each of Maeve are: Lisa Dexheimer, Carolyn Caldwell, Tresa, and Debd94. I’ve emailed you all, so check your mail boxes!

I’m in the process of skeining up yarns for gradient and other kits for my website and the New York Sheep & Wool Festival, and also creating some special blanks for sock and other knitting projects in some of my most popular bases, and I’d love your help!

I’ve created the following surveys to help me plan out these new STF offerings, so I can better provide just what you’re looking for, and I’m really hoping you’ll help me out by taking a moment to answer the following questions:

Complete the above survey, and then leave me a comment telling me what your dream yarn is: the color (either an already-existing colorway, or the as-yet-created color of your dreams) and on what STF yarn base, and you’ll be entered to win one of the skeins of yarn featured in the photograph below:

Maeve, 75 incredible yards per skein of super chunky superfine merino and cashmere. From left to right: Fresh Tomato, Waikiki, Scrimshaw, Bog Shadows

This is a new base I’m considering adding to my yarn line, which I’ve named Maeve. It’s a super chunky blend of superfine merino and cashmere, and is just intoxicating (hence the name: Maeve translates as intoxicating, or she who intoxicates πŸ˜€ ).

The survey will stay open until Tuesday, August 23, at which time I’ll close the comments and randomly choose 4 winners for a skein of yarn each!

Thanks for your feedback!

    Lately I’ve been coveting the colors of a very fine Cabernet. The deep, rich, sultry, sexy, dark reds/purples just make me swoon! For yarn bases, well, I love Sunna, Birte, Nona, Vesta, Verdande, Brigantia, and, and…

    Right now I am teaching sick classes so anything in a fingering weight is my favorite right now. Colors I would love to see or are drawn to are Kelly greens and navy’s with some purples and deep fuchsia. I can’t wait to meet you at NY Sheep and Wool this year!

  4. I need to build up my worsted stash right now, so I would say Verdande would be my favorite. I would love a peacock sort of color with green merging into teal to turquoise to cobalt to indigo to purple. I don’t ask for much!

    Hard to say what my favorite is. Right now I am lusting after a rich red in Vesta for a sweater. I’ll talk to you about it at the open house. Can’t wait!

    I am loving speckles right now and am spoiled to have a large stash. That said, if I were to win, I would love a merino or merino blend in a fingering weight. I have a speckled yarn is Browns and and an orange that is needing a third to knit a Steven West shawl. I really like surprises and am being vague on purpose!

    I like DK and worsted, so my favorite STF bases are Birte and Verdande.

    I am a sucker for blue, so your rich tonal blues (like tangled up in blue) are my favorite! (Although yor reds are pretty fantastic too – like ruby slippers) πŸ™‚

    Love Brigantia for sweaters (have I think 2 or 3 sweater quantities waiting for me to plan something) and then Sunna is a favorite for scarfs. I obviously like the Bog Shadows color as I had at one time 2 or 3 skeins of it that I must have just kept buying the same color but I also like any purple color.

    Something in your blues–Celestial or Midnight Rendezvous–but really ANY blue! Love the Brigantia base, but again, pretty much ANY of your yarn bases are great for knitting!

      (I should never try to reply on a Nook – it shuts down before I can even correct an entry). My dream STF yarn would be BFL, like Tayet, but in a fingering weight rather than a light fingering – BFL wears better than merino for socks but is deliciously soft and has a beautiful longwool glow, a regular fingering weight avoids having to do maths when using the plethora of existing fingering weight sock and sweater patterns. The color I’d love? Similar to Muscaris, but not *quite* as Welch’s grape jelly purple – add a bit of grey shading and a slight amount of variegation, for more depth. Rather like the depth and variegation of the Waikiki skein above, which is my favourite of the four chunky skeins.

        πŸ˜€ I’ll have to look into that. I chose a lighter fingering because Sunna is a bit heavier. I have a new sport weight non-superwash BFL, Eir, debuting at NYSW. And I’ll definitely work on a colorway that’s what you describe; sounds yummy to me, too πŸ˜€

    Sunna is absolutely my dream yarn. Luxurious and rugged at the same time. It is just a little heavier than most fingering and perfect for sock, shawls and even sweaters. My Favorite color so far has been Bacchus.
