I think it would make awesome gloves. And a matching hat if there were enough left.

I would LOVE to win that yarn! Holy smokes.... gorgeous. Those spattery colourways are nutso pretty. I think I would make Summer Wind! (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/summer-wind) I think it would really show off all the variegation in a lovely way :) OR I could see it looking stunning as part of a Roxborough Dolman (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/roxborough-dolman), maybe with some cool gray for contrast!

Love the skype interview too! So fun to watch!

TopHat said...

I think I would make the Mockery Socks!

October Rose said...

Socks! Or else an awesome cowl. :)

Brenda said...

I haven't made socks in a while, so I think it would be socks like "Froot Loops" from Knitty. They are perfect for variegated yarn.

Thx for a great contest!

(goodstuff on Rav)

Renee Anne said...

Socks. Or maybe part of a sock yarn blanket for Little Man. But, really, let's be honest...socks.

Marlitharn said...

Socks! They're not my most favorite thing in the world to knit but they are definitely my favorite thing to wear, so it all balances out. I love seeing pretty socks on my feet.

Amanda said...

Cakewalk does always scream socks to me, but your comment about garter stitch got me thinking...

Jade said...

Probably socks, it's always nice to add a splash a colour to my feet :)

Deb H. said...

I'm thinking of making a pair of socks or using part of it for the tiny owls beekeeper's quilt where you knit little hexapuffs out of your leftover sock yarn.

cguard(on rav) said...

I would do matching mother daughter socks as a way to help keep my daughter who is leaving the nest for college and myself connected. I imagine us putting on our socks in our own worlds but thinking of one another and stepping closer and further away.

Deborah said...

Hello.
If I win the Cherry Blossom yarn I would knit a pair of socks. The colors are so pretty. Thank you for offering the yarn give away.

Meg said...

I would make another pair of Monkey socks, they show off variegated colours so well!

Andrea said...

Biscuit said...

That yarn is amazing! If I was to win, I would make the Thin Ice shawl by Laura Linneman. I would love to own this yarn!!

Christine said...

I would make something that used the Feather and Fan pattern because 1) it's one of my favorites, 2) it shows off variegated real nicely.

I've been knitting shawls for a few years now, cuz I love knitting lace, and I might design a shawlette for this yarn.

Kristen said...

I would definitely have to make something for the kidlet..."Summer Days" or the "Angel Fish Skirt" - both patterns by Elena Nodel.

THE KNITORIOUS MRS. B said...

Soooo many creative choices this delicious yarn offers!!!!
I think I'd like to work it as a adorable granny square baby car seat cover. Bet it would be really cute!If the yarn isn't quite enough I'm sure I could find something in my stash in a coordinating solid color to finish with a nice border!
Keeping my hook and needles crossed that I'm picked!

Anonymous said...

Ohh, such pretty yarn! I think I would make Susan's hippo from her Itty Bitty toy book and some sock. I recently started knitting socks and know it would be fun to knit a pair with this wonderful yarn!

Juli said...

I would use this wonderful yarn to knit a baby set. I have several babies being born in the next few months and this yarn would inspire me!

or this:

or maybe something for myself...so hard to decide!

Olivia said...

I've become recently addicted to shawls. So I'd probably search for a springy shawl pattern (because cherry blossoms remind me of spring...and DC...but mostly spring)!

Leanne (Lunatic84) said...

I would probably make Susan's 'How I make My Socks' pattern for some classic beautiful socks!!

Loved the interview!
Leanne (lunatic84 on rav)

Brandi Schoch said...

I think I would make zilver I love the simplicy of the pattern it would really showcase the yarn.

Jaime said...

I'd make a pair of socks but this time I'd try to break out of my usual 3x1 rib and go for either a lace or cabled pattern (or both!)

Wendy Lamar said...

I think I would make LaLa's socks on a plane or a hat with a cute ruffle and mittens for my 4 year old out of Cherry Blossom.

KnittySue said...

OMG that yarn is so so pretty. Thanks Susan..I'm a huge fan of yours and a chance to win this is exciting. What I would make with it...Hmmm...it would definately be a shawl to show off the amazing yarn.
Thanks

Rachel said...

I'd probably do a shawl, I've been on a kick for those lately, and I love that sock yarn is perfect for them.

Kerry said...

I would make a pair of ruffled socks. I think that would be so cute.

That yarn is awesome!

I'd make a Lombard street shawl. It's so airy, and the yarn is so summery. I think it would be the perfect match!

Hilary said...

Cakewalk yarn is lovely! The colors are so vivid and reminiscent of favorite childhood places...such as the bakery:) If i won the cherry blossom yarn I would make a top down hooded children's sweater or socks. I am completely obsessed with sock knitting this year.
Great interview! Thanks for sharing:)

Rae Lynne said...

Hmm...as much as I would like a pair of socks with this yarn, I think it would make for an adorable baby sweater for my little girl. :)

Susan - I love watching videos with you! You're just so full of energy and enthusiasm - it's hard not to be happy and excited with you. :)

Sherri A 531 said...

Thanks for the great interview with Susan! As for the yarn, I would let the yarn "speak" to me, see it, touch it and then decide what I would make out of it. Sooo many great patterns to choose from.

Desiree said...

Thanks for giving away such awesome yarn. The colors are beautiful! I would make a pair of socks probably with the tadpoles pattern or the saucy pattern. Ravelry Id Nonosmom

I love following you and Susan but not very happy you guys weren't considerate of me as I am deaf and I cannot hear what you guys were talking about to get the question in order to participate in the contest. I would love to enter in the contest but I guess I can't now!

Anonymous said...

I would love to get my hands on some of this yarn. I would make the Baby Mystery sweater. I have wanted to try that pattern and think this would be so pretty.

Kimberlyn said...

I think that the speckled Cakewalk Yarns need pretty simple patterns. I am knitting a pair of Pillars socks by Lisa Stichweh in the Taos colorway. So, if I knit a pair of socks, I would choose something pretty simple.

I think this yarn would also make a great slouchy hat, like Sockhead or even Susan's Baby Slouch!

Lucy said...

I would make socks or a shawl. I keep falling in love with shawls.

Diana said...

I would definitely make socks, just plain socks with no pattern to show off the pretty yarn.

Hind DP said...

Thanks for the interview, I love reading Susan's blog and it's fun to see her live. I haven't made many socks for myself and I certainly want some fun ones, so I would definitely use that yarn to make socks.

Donna Murray said...

I would love to make socks.

Danae said...

The yarn is gorgeous and I loved watching the interview. I think I would make a hat with it.

Allison said...

I love socks but I think I would do a shawl...one with a fair bit of garter to show off colors....maybe Multnomah.

i think a shawl. Or a pair of fingerless gloves!

Jenny Jayne said...

I would make footie socks. I have bigger feet for a girl (size 12)so making footies gives me more "bang" for my yarn. I can get 3 (!) socks for mix n' match fun. AND, I love Cakewalk Yarn--awesome giveaway!

Racedogmom said...

As much as I love sock knitting, I'd want something that lasts longer. So I'd choose a shawlette. Something with simple garter only so that the yarn is the focus, not the pattern of holes in the lace.

Sarah Bear said...

I would make one of the Hitchhiker shawls!

tcsd said...

It's so pretty, it would be hard to not see it if I were to make socks, so I would use it for a shawl. A very, very beautiful shawl. :)

Laura said...

I'd make some gloves or something so that I could see the yarn while I was wearing them!

Melissa Martinez said...

I think my cousin Jenny's new baby would look great in a kimono style baby sweater in the Cherry Blossom colorway!

I love this yarn! The color is so cheerful. I would definitely make some socks with this yarn. It would look great as Monkey socks.

delitealex said...

Love the interview glad I found your blog by looking around on Ravelry. I would probably make my first pair of socks or my first shawlette. Thanks for the chance to win.

luckystarr826 said...

I was thinking the opal bunny might be cute out of the give away yarn with the matching hat for my newborn cousin. Or perhaps a shawl... But I love making the little toys and Susan's patterns are the best. Thanks!

ohhhhhh....hard decision.....but probably a pair of socks!!! I love the yarn!

I would pair it with some solid black for colorwork that would really pop! Maybe for a Fractal Cowl, but possibly for socks. I love socks.

sgbooth88 said...

I am lusting after this color now!! I would love to make a linen stitch cowl, or maybe even a lacy or ruffled baktus out of this yarn. And if I had any scraps left over they would become a cute bracelet or eve a hexipuff for my blanket :)

Susan's Opal Sock Yarn bunny inspires the idea of using this to make an itty bitty toy.

At first I thought of making some fun socks - but socks are my go-to project. So maybe I'd branch out and make something else like a hat or cowl or mitts. Or maybe just another pair of socks!

I'd make a pair of colourwork socks, either Nightingale or Bonnie Birds, I'm bound to have a good contrast yarn in my stash and if not I can dye something.

ikkinlala said...

I'd probably make a really simple pair of socks - either ribbed or with a simple cable (maybe with an interesting gusset to spice things up, but I wouldn't want to choose a pattern that would compete with the yarn).

I came across Cakewalk Yarns when I was stalking etsy a few weeks ago, now there's a giveaway - it's calling me :p.

What would I knit.....? I love Strickmich's Lintilla shawl. I love how the garter stitch brings out the colour variegation and those ruffles are beautiful. With the Australian summer on the way it's such a lovely light summery colourway - Cherry Blossom, Lintilla and the Aussie summer are made for each other.

Thanks to Susan B Anderson for introducing me to such a great blog :D.

I am on a sock kick right now, so it would have to be socks. I have made two pair by Susan's pattern and have given both away! Love them!!! I need to make some for myself!

Socks... maybe 2 sets of matching socks for my beautiful grand-daughters! Or possibly something else for them...I rarely knit for myself )=
I love the Skype interview format! It's awesome to see. Thanks so much... and thank you for the giveaway, too. jdthomas1974(at)msn(dot)com

I've tried so many times to make socks, but I keep frogging them... maybe I just need the right yarn! :-)

I think that I would make a simple shawl with the yarn. I love the colors!

I would knit either a shawl, socks, or long cowl.
Love the interview!

I covet Susan's socks made with this yarn so I'd either do some socks or a lacy cardi for my two-year-old.

Thx for the interview!

Can't decide between Mince Pie Mayhem socks by Alice Yu or the Roam Cowl by Jennifer Dassau, I'm leaning towards the cowl though!

I would definitely make socks with this yarn. I could make a couple of pairs for my son's 5 and 7 year old best girl friends.

Thanks so much!

I am wanting to do some stranded colorwork sock, and that would be such a fun color to start with!

I see one of Susan's toys made out of this yarn. The hippo or maybe a bird with the color changes. I have my fingers crossed!!

Even though I'm not a great sock knitter, this yarn would be great for a fun pair of socks. Second would be a shawl, that would be really fun in these colors.

I would love to knit with this yarn. I would knit a shawl, I think! I've been looking at the baktus pattern, but a cardigan for my granddaughter would be a consideration, too!
