Giveaway!

Is it possible that I haven't done a giveaway since October? Shame on me. Let's fix that right now!

baby shane giveaway

Recently I've been looking at my Baby Shane Blanket kits in a whole new light. I've had these kits available in my shop for a few years now, and suddenly I find them completely inspiring! I think that most people buy the kits with the intention of knitting my Baby Shane Blanket pattern (duh) but there are so many possibilities. I'm considering crocheting a ripple blanket, maybe knitting a simple striped blanket like this... I've started viewing these kits almost like sampler palettes that I can play around with, I've got a few more palettes in mind, I might refresh some of my currently available colour options and add some new ones too in the future. 

Which brings us to today's giveaway! Leave a comment to enter to win the Baby Shane Blanket kit of your choice. In your comment, let me know:

1) What is your favorite palette? Or, is there's a palette that you'd love to see but that I don't yet have available, let me know! 

2) What would you make with your kit? 

3) Be sure to leave an e-mail address or Ravelry username so I can get in touch with you should you win! 

As usual, for bonus entries:

Mention this giveaway on your blog and include a link to this giveaway post - be sure to come back and leave another comment here telling me that you blogged about it so I know!

Post a link to this blog post on your facebook page (be sure to tag TFA in the post so I can see it!)
Tweet about the giveaway on twitter!


A winner will be chosen and announced on Monday, April 2nd. Good luck!

Comments are now closed, thanks to all who entered!

  2. I love, love, LOVE the purple palette!!! The colors are just wowie!!

    I would probably make some striped or ripple blankets. I graduate this summer and become a kindergarten teacher ( <333 YESYESYES!!!! ). So in September I will have my own kindergarten class -which means; i would make some feel-better-blankets for the kids. When they are not feeling well of when they are sad, they can grab a feel-better-blanket en snuggle up in it!!

  4. I'm making a baby Shane blanket in pastels. It's so hard to choose! Will probably go with the reds...or a rainbow palette!

    They could make an awesome Tulip Baby Cardigan! Or possibly another stripey blanket :)

    I'm really drawn to the Reds! (All are really beautiful, though.) I would probably make a blanket since I love them and never tire of knitting them!

    ReplyDelete
  6. So many beautiful color choices! I love green, so that's my favorite of the kits...

    I dream of a nice Shane lap blanket for my living room -- since we're dreaming here and it's fun to play with color combos, maybe Brick & Sunset, Deep Sea & Seabreeze, Chestnut & Gold, Olive & Spearmint?

  7. I love them all but always gotta go for the greens. :) I know SO many people having babies right now, I'd probably make either the Baby Shane blanket or some other sort of garter stitch rainbow stripe type blanket.

    ReplyDelete
  8. im a sucker for any and all greens so the green kit is my favourite :) i bet a kit in greens to greys would also be lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Greens palette.
    I'd like to see Eggplant, Green-Yellow, Gray-Brown, Mustard, Red-Orange, Beige, Taupe, and my favorite blues are Green with a hint of blue and blue purple.
    A blanket would be nice woven or crocheted probably or knits for my daughter.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Wow! That blue to yellow palette is definitely calling my name! I'd love to try something like a lizard ridge throw, but a plain ole striped throw would be super in those colors!

    Rav: arlenemarie

    ReplyDelete
  11. I really like all of the palettes in some way or fashion, but I'm a big fan of the colors of the 60's and 70's and would love to see something like this http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rings--things-afghan
    in some browns/oranges/olive drab/turqoise-y colors.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I think I would pick the jewel tones. I love getting those babies away from pastels.
    I might try stripes or I might 'design' a baby blanket using some combination of patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Jewel palette and I would make a decadent shawl! I love Tanis - just love it,I am making 2 projects using it now and am slowly become a Tanis Hoar - (as in Hoarder LOL)

  14. I am in love with the jewel colorway, it's amazing. I think I'd make the Baby Shane blanket, there will be a slew of new babies to knit for soon!

    Thank you so much for doing the give away!

  15. I love the blue to yellow colorways. I'm relatively new at knitting, so I'm not adept at mixing several colors yet. However, I think several striped sweaters for my little girl would be a lovely use of such wonderful yarn.

    Ravelry : Starryjean

    ReplyDelete
  16. My favourite is the Jewel Tone - I made my son a Baby Shane last fall with a kit. I would probably make the same again, with the Original but with a crocheted border or possibly a mitered square blanket like Autumn's Delight.

  17. My choice is definitely the purples and, but since I have no babies to knit for, I would use it to make the Color Affection shawl by Veera Valimaki. I love the look and it has so many possibilities,and would be lovely in your yarn.

  18. What beautiful colors! My favorites are the purples and blues, but all of them are great! I'm thinking a chevron blanket would be what I'd make. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  20. Hi Tanis...Wow..Where to begin..I think I would like the purples colourway. But the project would be hard to choose...we have no babies in our families future so I would be very selfish and treat myself. Most likely a shawl to wrap up in. Bonnie...jcharter@cogeco.ca

  21. What a great giveaway! I would choose the original pallette to make the Shane blanket.

  23. Blues, predictably, all the way.

    I don't know yet what I'd make... some kind of slip stitch thing in which each color can transition gracefully into the next?

  24. I would choose the Blues palette and either make a blanket, a sweater or a bunch of smaller projects. Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  25. I'd make the Baby Shane Blanket - so many babies to knit for these days, and since it's my favorite - I'd choose the purple palette. Closertofine722 on rav.

    ReplyDelete
  26. The original palette is lovely. It would also be great to see a darker set, maybe garnet, plum, velvet, dove, charcoal, stormy, spruce, atlantic.

  27. I'm an accessory person, so knitting a lovely shawl would be my preference and since I also love jewellery...the Jewel colourway would be my favourite.

  28. I love the Greens palette. I'd also love to see just a grey/gold/yellow palette (grellow). I'm decorating with those colours and would love to knit a Blooming Flower Cushion or Churchmouse's Vintage Crocheted Blanket.

  29. Love the blue to yellow group! I would probably try a few Blank Canvas baby sweaters and experiment with colors and stripes.
    Keep making kits - you are so great at color pallettes!

    I love the blue to yellow palette. I would likely make a baby blanket as there are lots of babies 'under construction' around me these days.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I really like the original set of colors, and would most likely knit a blanket if I were to win. Since you also asked about other color groups -- a cream/white, various shades of gray to black, with a pop of color to liven it up. Maybe turquoise or raspberry.

    Rav: KathyD

    ReplyDelete
  32. The jewels or the purples...and they would become a great big shawl, one that shaded from the dark to the light and served as a fabulous warm hug....maybe even something like Wests whale tale--but I'm not sure yet.

    Techmuse (RAV)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like the blues. but really i would like a rainbow palette.

    royal flush, sweetheart, orange blossom, buttercup, lemongrass, seabreeze, cobalt, jewel.

    i would use it for colourwork mittens i think. or something that would use all the colours at once.

  34. I love the "Jewel" selection of colours. I would like to design a "modular" knit vest or a "modular" knit blanket. Either of these options would showcase the beautiful colours.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I think my favorite color is the greens or green to yellow. If I won I would make the Baby Shane Blanket!

  36. Dying to make the super simple Purl Bee striped blanket for my new nephew. Red colorway is my absolute FAVE!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am in love with the Jewel palette. While most or many of the palettes are "rainbow" colours, which I LOVE, I think it would be fantastic to see an electric palette. I'm thinking about the Kryptonite yarn I recently bought, and something that had some subtle colours as well as some outrageous ones would be amazing. I see some great bright colours mixed into the other palettes which could work.

    I think I would kit up Missoni Inspired Chevron Blanket (you can find it on Ravelry). I love anything Missoni inspired.

  38. Greens and purples are my favorites and I like yours....but I kept being pulled back to your blue to yellow pallette! Without feeling the yarn, I an learning toward trying your baby shame pattern. I am grannydani on ravelry.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Yay for a great giveaway!!!

    I would have to say either the Greens or Jewel would be my fav, but they are all so gorgeous!

    I would probably make shawls or cowls.

    RavID: cdavis

    ReplyDelete
  40. Either the Original or the Blues palette. Both speak to me. The Baby Shane pattern would be perfect as I have four baby blankets to knit in the next three months. The world population is on the rise!

  45. I'm partial to the jewel palette. What would I knit? Maybe Undercurrent from Knitty or a lot of scarves/hats.

  46. I love the Blues colorway, it's a good thing I had two boys :)

  47. The Original colors are gorgeous. I would probably make a baby blanket. Those colors would make a beautiful striped blanket.

  48. I love them all, but if I had pick I would go with the greens palette. I would love to knit a Baby Shane, but would also love a striped cardigan...hmmm.

  49. Love love love the red colorway! I've been thinking of starting a simple graduated color crochet ripple blanket, this kit would be wonderful!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Sadly, don't have a log in, but ..

    I've got another baby blanket in the queue (silly people getting pregnant!) and would love to do a blanket in the Blues (or maybe Greens?).

    JenBee on Ravely, Athena4lynn on Twitter (I also retweeted!)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I would choose the greens palette. I have at least six friends due to give birth between August and October, so I am thinking that yarn would become baby sweaters, hats and/or booties. The greens are perfect for either a boy or a girl.

  54. I love the greens palette! I'd make a giant stripey shawl (or a series of stripey shawls). Wearing shawls is a socially acceptable way of curling up in a blanket in the workplace.

    The Baby Shane blanket reminds me of Kaffe Fassett quilts, so if I won this kit I'd make something inspired by his work and yours.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Oooooooh - so many lovely choice - I'd probably pick Greens and do some sort of zigzaggy striped blanket

  56. I love all of them :) I love the kits because they are great for doing colorwork and because I can see the colors in person before committing to a color for a larger project!

  57. That's a very hard choice. I would probably make a blanket for a new grandbaby due in August. So I'd stick to original or blues so it would be suitable for a boy or girl. My Rav ID is winenwaves.

  58. I like the blue palette! I would make a blanket - maybe the breezy baby blanket

  59. I love the Purples and the Blues and the Jewels! If I had to pick, I think...Purples? No, Blues! Not sure what I'd make (colour me indecisive) -- blanket is tempting, but a stripey cardi might be amazing.

  60. Love the blues palette, so much variety and lovely tones. I would use the set to make a throw inspired by the colour patterning and shapes of Mucha, which I've been meaning to do for ages.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I've made one Baby Shane from the purples - and have the original palette for another - which will be for the "baby chests" of my grandchildren (someday)! I think the original palette has always been my favorite!

  62. Hi Tanis,

    Love the jewel colourway...so beautiful! I'd make a blanket for my little niece and nephew to snuggle under.

    Fingers crossed!

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love the original, but I have made two Baby Shane blankets already (in original and red) for twins. Dad was Shane, that's why I picked it.

    So I would pick pastel because my daughter would love those colors and I would make something of her choosing, which varies from moment to moment (she's four) but currently she's saying she'd like a pod of pastel whales.

  73. I like either the blue to yellow colourway or the original one. Very cool.

  74. Too many choices! I'm immediately drawn to the Blues, Greens, and Blue to Yellow colorways. And what would I make? Probably a baby blanket... I just found out a friend I used to work with JUST had a baby and I didn't even know she was expecting! It was a boy... maybe why all that blue looks good.

    ReplyDelete
  75. I think the green colourway is my favourite. The blanket is supercute, so I might make that, or I migth horde this in stash because it's just so beautiful.

  78. I love the jewel tones! I think I would make a knitted variation on the ripple blanket-maybe with a feather and fan stitch.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Oh My! They are all so lovely! But if I had to choose, probably Jewel, or Green.
    It's been years since I made a ripple afghan so that would probably be one of my choices, that or a chevron stripe.

    audreylenore (Rav)

    ReplyDelete
  82. How about a "rainbow" palette? Suggested colours would be: poppy, orange blossom, buttercup, lemongrass, cobalt, deep sea (gotta have two blues!) lilac, and jewel.

    I could see this in a striped blanket or a check where the stripes go both ways (if you know what I mean?)

  88. 1) I love all the palettes! Picking a favourite is hard. I think I'd have to say Jewel just because it's such a wide variety of colour. But Greens is a really, really close second.

    2) With that amount of gorgeous coloured yarn, a striped blanket is just asking to be made!

    3) I'm shiver on ravelry :)

  89. Cute and Easy Crochet by Nicki Trench, and your lovely yarns would be a great match! I have filled my cart a few times with colours to do the Springtime Throw, but keep changing my mind about the colours! The Pastel Palette would be perfect . . . . . . . .or would you be open to a 'Country Cottage' Palette? with these colours:

    Buttercup
    Sweetheart
    Lemon grass
    Natural
    Royal Flush
    Orange Blossom

    I made a Baby Shane blanket from the pastels colorway for my grand daughter. It washes beautifully and is amazingly soft! I also used my scrap yarns and made another Baby Shane for a friend at work who was expecting her second child. I would love to make this blanket again in the purple color way. Your yarn is simply the best! Sooo soft....

  100. The kits are all beautiful. But having to choose just one, my pick is Jewel. I would knit the simple garter stitch blanket with it.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Oh, don't make me choose! Okay, Original or Greens, but I'd love to see greens/oranges/yellows/reds for fall. And a blanket is a logical choice, but I think the range of shades would be great for a Kalahari Tote type of bag, which I made for 2009 Ravelympics. (KWAK's project page on Ravelry.)

    ReplyDelete
  103. We were all devastated when our family pusscat of 15yrs died during last weekend . Our son (8yrs old) lovingly gave her one of his baby blankets to be buried in. So I was thinking of knitting him something stripy and fun later in the spring - as he says..."you can never have too many nankets mama". I think this pattern: Rainbow Chain Carriage Blanket by Erika Flory (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rainbow-chain-carriage-blanket) would be lovely in your blue to yellow kit (or green or jewel or blue...oh my... I think they would all be lovely!).
    thanks, Claire (clairestarrs on Ravelry).

    ReplyDelete
  104. How gorgeous! My favorite colorway is the jewel tones. As for what I'd make, I'm honestly not sure... probably not a baby blanket because I have no need for one, but I bet you could make something fun and stripey! Maybe a nice big shawl and matching mitts...

  105. I love the pastels! And I would make a the baby blanket for my best friend who is expecting her first baby in September. A fall baby definitely needs a warm and snuggly blankie!

  106. I love the jewel colors.I am always drawn toward jewel tones. If I didn't make the baby blanket,I would probably knit a Sunnyside sweater or two. I have two friends that will be first time grandmas in the coming months, so I have to knit some baby items.

  108. I love the "blue to yellow" palette. It might be fun to have a tropical-type collection, with bright yellow, orange, some red/pinks and green/aqua colors.

    If I won, I would probably crochet an afghan, perhaps a granny square or ripple.

  114. I love, love them. My favourite is the Purples. I would make one (or two) "little coffee bean cardigans" for a friend who's newly pregnant, and then have enough left to make me a something too! Hurray!

  117. What about a rainbow color way, combining some of the colorways together.

  119. i like the reds, but i'd maybe replace the light gray color with an aqua. i think i would either make the baby shane (great pattern!) or the missoni inspired baby chevron blanket. redflowerknit on rav

  120. I love the originals (the jewels are a close second). I must say, though, that all of the colors are so nice! I really like the blanket as designed - if I win I would want to have another baby to knit this for (but at almost 42, I'd have to settle for making it for a gift or for a lap blanket - might be neat to try to convert the pattern into a shawl otherwise). Thanks for the chance! Love your colors, blog, etc!! Stephanie (indigodogmt on Ravelry)

  125. 1) The Purples palette is my absolute favorite for a girly-girl baby, or the Blues palette for a less gender-centric and still gorgeous blanket.

  127. I've been wanting to play with designing my own patterns, and our living room is in dire need of an afghan that isn't 35 years old with the color scheme to prove it. Someting with texture and color, perhaps cables or ribbing in unexpected places. SoCal doesn't often call for terribly heavy blankets, but when you want a little something, it's nice to have the right sort of thing handy.

    The blues to yellow, I think. It manages to be both soothing and cheerful in the right amounts.

  130. I cant find my comment, so I dont know what happened, if I posted twice forgive me!

    I would pick the purple it makes me swoon just looking at it. I think I would do 1-2 skein projects with each one and then hopefully make some kind of stripey thing (maybe childs sweater) with whats left. To showcase the original colors alone and then a small mix. All of your things are so beautiful I would love to see them "in real life"

    ReplyDelete
  134. Since in all likelihood I won't win, this is easy! Original, pastels, jewels, purples, blues.... What I see is some sort of light weight sweater/jacket.
    Possibly with some pretty abstract color work. Maybe Van Gogh or Monet. This of course would necessitate purchasing more yarn but as long as I'm indulging a fantasy...

  140. I was just looking at the Shane pattern for my nephews new baby is brother's name is Shane, so it seemed like it should be the one. All colours that are boyish would work. You have such lovely yarn, and such a unique way ofputting patterns and colours together!

  143. Your yarns are always so beautiful, I've been slowly introducing them to other people as I can pry them out of my own greedy hands.

    I love the idea of doing a duster-length ombre cardigan in graduated colors.

    I've been on your colors page using the spearmint to chestnut 8 colors exactly as you have them displayed would be a really lovely green summer to late fall colored something.

    You really are amazing!

  144. The original palette is my favorite! I'm a greens-purples-blues kind of girl. I would use the kit to start a colorwork project of some kind. I haven't done much in the past, and the palette would be a good starter kit for inspiration and practice!

  145. Ok, I will probably seem like a huge "copycat" but I absolutely love the colors and design you chose for your Baby Shane blanket. My only revision would be to knit a lace edging instead of the garter stitch border.Thank you so much for this opportunity!

    ReplyDelete
  146. well, since my friends are having a baby soon and i've been eyeing this blanket, i guess i'll have to say i'll make the original Baby Shane. i like both the red and green colorways, which is weird because i usually pick blues. :)

  147. Oooo yarn. I'd love to win.

    My favorite palette of your current selection is Jewel Tones... or maybe Blues. But the palette I'd love to see is an 'Earth Tones', all greens and browns... Say, Sand, Amber, Chestnut, Stormy, Olive, Midnight, Mallard, and Spearmint.

    I'd probably make a lap blanket or shawl in crocodile stitch - wouldn't that look lovely in the Blues?

  149. I’ve been admiring these kits for ages, and would love to make a baby shane blanket – I like the look of two colours striped together a lot. I think the blue to yellow colour scheme is my favourite, but it’s a tough call! Lately I’ve been looking at ravelry pictures of the finished blankets for colour inspiration in planning a striped sweater. While looking at your different colourways, I was thinking it would be nice to have a baby shane blanket where each quarter is devoted to a different colour, and the stripes within that quarter are lighter and darker shades of a similar colour (for example, purple, green, blue, and orange quarters: maybe lilac/plum, tidal/midnight, spearmint/spruce, and gold/sunset). So many options!

  150. The Jewel tones or the Blues are what I have been gravitating towards of late.
    They are all so stunning.

    As for what I would make I would probably make a shawl. I just made a shawl for my mother while she was in the hospital.

  152. Hi: I like the original palette best. I would definitely make the baby shane blanket and then buy another one with pink tones for a girl. I have so many nieces and nephews on the way I don't know how I will A)afford all the wool b)afford all the time to knit each new one a blanket. But I will try my best. I have been thinking of buying two of the jewel tone kits to put together to knit an afghan for my son and his wife.

  153. So beautiful! Found you from my sisters' blog, Nice and Knit. I'm a new knitter, and would love the blues palette- and I'd probably knit another Mystic Comfort pillow with the yarn. Love your colorways!

  154. I really like the blues to yellow colors, but the reds is also really nice. I'd probably make a super simple baby blanket, something to show off all the great colors.

  155. Thanks for the giveaway! I love all the palettes you've put together, but I'd really like a yellow/orange palette. I think it would go really well for the spring/summer against a neutral decor, especially in a trendy chevron pattern. :)

  157. I really like the blue pallet. I am not sure what I would knit, but Katie and Kara from Nice and Knit are my daughters and I am sure they would have some ideas of what I could do. I have checked your blog periodically since they told me how much they enjoyed your blog and your yarn. My husband is the potter that made the yarn bowls they featured on their blog, so I am surrounded by "crafty" people.

  158. They're all so beautiful, but I think the Jewel palette is my favourite. I'd use it to make a baby Shane blanket for my sister who is pregnant with her first. If we knew whether it was a boy or a girl I might choose different colours, but for some reason I think the Jewel colours work for either a boy or a girl without screaming "I didn't know the gender of the baby"

  163. I'm very torn between the Blue to Yellow and the Greens - but I think the greens win by a horses hair.

But all sets would work perfectly for that - man, those are some great coloured yarns...

  164. choosing one option is NOT my strong point. I swing between the original pallet and the purples. i would love to make a lacy wall hanging and stretch it to fit in a window where the sun would shine on the colours and leave a shadow on the oppisite wall, perhaps something in my work shop. :)

  166. I could not figure out how to put a picture in with a comment so I am emailing you with one. I would knit a Shane blanket to go with my newly renovated living room. What a swell design! The sofa and chair are denim blue leather, and the painting is one of my husband's. I love the pastels color way the most, and seem to be stuck on them as I make soaps lately. (mamouchasoaps.com). But for this room, I would go with the greens palette. The blues would be too obvious.

  172. The purples make me happy, in terms of a colour palette. I admit, however, that I am particularly drawn to either purple, or to a combination of olive-y, Shrek-y and willow-y greens, with a strong cream/yellow and a soft rose as a combo!
