I have several more in the works and hope to post them before I leave (if I don’t run out of time!).

Somehow, a few of these ended up with an extra skein in the mix, and I find myself with 6 miscellaneous skeins. I’ve put them together into two mini-sets of 300 yards each, and I’m giving them away!

There are loads of fun little projects to make with 150-300 yards of lace weight yarn (and Nona is a heavy lace weight, merino / cashmere / silk blend) on Ravelry.

So, leave a comment telling me which set you’d love to have, and I’ll randomly choose a winner for each on Tuesday, October 4, 2016!

  1. Thanks, now you’ve made me homesick! (I’m originally from the Hudson Valley. Chicago just doesn’t have the autumn colors, and I miss them). All your gradient sets are lovely, but a hint of Autumn in NY would be wonderful πŸ˜€

    • Sorry to make you homesick :-). Yeah, nothing beats Autumn in New England (not even Virginia, and we have quite a pretty Autumn here, too).

  2. It’s hard to choose. I’ll go for the peacock set as winter is coming and I want to line up my winter knitting project up. I think this set and some white would be a great winter project….hopefully for myself.

  3. Both are beautiful but if I had to pick just one I would go with the Autumn. I am looking forward to seeing you in Rhinebeck.

  4. Ooh! The Peacock set is a collection of all my favorite colors! I really do need to get started on my STF hat for Rhinebeck! If I use up more of my stash, the more I can buy! πŸ˜‰

  7. I love the Mini Peacock- the blues and purples are my colors!
    I have been enjoying learning about the inspirations for your colors. Your posts are one of the highlights of my week- a chance to get away from the grind of work and dream…..

    • Aw, thank you so much! I really appreciate that (and it helps hearing from you; sometimes I feel like I’m writing in a vacuum πŸ™‚ ).

  8. There is something about the blues that are calling me. So, for me, it’s the Peacock. But I must say, you do beautiful work. πŸ™‚

  10. This is a tough choice! I think I would go with the Peacock, but that Autumn in NY is stunning! The leaves are starting to change up here and it is breathtaking!

  14. Hi Jennifer, I came across Laura Nelkin’s “Texo Cuff” pattern and I would love to knit and bead some for gifts for a few of my 11(!) granddaughters. The Mini Peacock set would be perfect! I love your new gradient kits!, by the way…
