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!

  1. OOoo I'd love to win!

    I love the purple colorways!
    I'd probably make something stripey and awesome. Not sure what yet!

  2. The Greens palette is the one that makes my heart go pitter pat! I would definitely make a blanket, and probably a very simple striped one - maybe even some comforting, squishy garter stripes. My esthetic is generally pretty simple, I love stripes, and I've JUST found out that I will probably need to move in about a month (cringe!). I think knitting something soothing, stripey, and GREEN (my absolute favourite colour) would go a long way to helping me deal with moving stress! :) -- SarahVV on Rav!

    Love the greens. My first grandbaby is coming in August. I love the baby Shane blanket.

  5. My favorite is the reds kit! I would use mine to make a chevron striped cardigan, I have an idea floating in my head and this would be the perfect yarn for the design!

  6. Ooooooh I love the Blues palette

    I love that fair isle baby sweater you made out of one of your kits...I'd most likely consider making one of those. So cute!

  7. Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

    The blues are gorgeous. I've been thinking of knitting a Sky Scarf (Conceptual Knitting), and that colorway has the perfect colors!

    The sky scarf is a simple garter stitch scarf, and each day one garter ridge is knit with the colors that reflect the sky that day.

  8. My favorite is probably the blue to yellow one, but i think a palette with a lot of yellows and reds would be reaaaallly nice! I really like the blanket you designed so I would probably just make that :) I love stripes.

  9. I really like the blues to yellows and also the originals! I think something involving stripes, chevrons or possibly fair isle would be great!

  10. It's almost impossible to choose a favorite palette - they're all so beautiful, and playing with color is one of the parts I love most about yarn and knitting. I think the original and the purples palettes are beautiful (it seems whenever I'm choosing, I tend to gravitate toward pinks and purples!) - I think a rainbow palette would be awesome, as well (like poppy, orange blossom, buttercup, lemongrass, peacock, and grape). I would make either this log cabin baby blanket (http://www.purlbee.com/the-purl-bee/2010/5/23/anzula-squishy-log-cabin-baby-blanket.html) or this chevron baby blanket (just knit on smaller needles) (http://www.purlbee.com/chevron-baby-blanket/).

    Thanks for doing this giveaway - it's amazing! My e-mail is andrea.hungerford@mac.com.

  11. I always for for purples. So I think in this case I would go for the jewels to add some more colors. I also love teal and that peachy color in the pic.

    I think I would likely make the blanket.

  13. I'm going to make a baby Shane blanket for a friend who is due in August. It would be awesome to win the yarn! For her I was thinking Jewel because the baby is a boy and she's on an Adirondack theme. I would like different palettes and I'd would know it if I saw it but can't come up with it on my own.

  14. I didn't know about the Baby Shane blanket pattern - the projects on Ravelry look great. I would knit a Baby Shane blanket in the purples palette.

  16. I love your purple palette. Followed very closely by your pastel palette. I would make a baby Shane blanket. I have made one before and I love the opportunity to knit with eight of your colors in the same project. Thanks for having a giveaway. It is always exciting waiting to find out who wins.

  17. This would be amazing to win!

    I love the jewel combination so much! I think I'd actually make the blanket.. or if I could find a cardigan/sweater pattern to incorporate those colours.. it would be so pretty!

  18. Oh my - are you really going to make me choose a favorite palette? Can I choose them all?!? ;) I am loving the purple one today I think. I have wanted to do the Shane blanket for awhile now - so I would probably cast on that! :) And I think it is about time that my 18 month old had another knitted blanket from mommy (her 4 year old sister has a ton!).

  19. Pick a colorway? They're all magnificent. If forced I'd go with original, and I'd likely make the Baby Shane blanket - I expect friends to announce soon they're expecting. :) Although it'd be fun to have for first fair isle work?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love the jewel pallate! I would either make an infinity scarf or a striped sweater.

  22. It's hard to choose as all the palettes are so beautiful, but my favorite is definitely the greens. I would make the Baby Shane blanket for a dear friend who's expecting.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the "Blues" palette. What would I make? Ummm...maybe a triangular shawl of some sort with striped blues. Pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm loving the blue to yellow's group something you don't have though would be a rainbow group or one from each colour.
    I'd probably make something colourful for T with it, I seem to be leaning towards stripes at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Jewel tones all the way! I see them in an awesome granny square quilt - retro but still chic!

  26. I really love the blue palette and I would make the Shane blanket.

  27. I'm lurking at the Baby Shane blanket for a while now ... I'm waiting for the right baby ;)

    The Jewel and the Blue palettes are screaming at me ... I'll need a lot of self-control not to buy a kit !!

    Something with strips would be perfect to show the wonderful colors you create. I'm Kiara08 on Rav !

  28. I am a big fan of your wonderful, colorful yarns.
    I'd love to win it in a palette of blues :)))
    I love these shades :)))

  29. I have been wanting to make this blanket - so that is what I'd do if I won. I like the original colour combination for a baby blanket, but I wish I could drag and drop colours on the page to test a mix of the red and purple sets, without the lightest colours. Rav. CraftingCrone

  30. These are all gorgeous, but I would love to have the 'greens' set! I would definitely make your baby Shane blanket.

  39. I love your yarns & patterns! I especially love the blue colourway and I would make the Baby Shane blanket with it (if I don't win, I just might order the kit anyway!). I've just finished my Fiddlehead mitts and I love them, too bad I have to put them away until the snow flies again. You can find me as wouldntyouknow on Ravelry.

  40. I love the jewel tones!... but would also love to see a range of oranges.

    I'd like to crochet a blanket made of african flow hexagons. It's been on my to-do forever, but it would require so much time and yarn!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wow, they are all so beautiful. I love the blues and would probably make a mitered vest for me.

  42. What? you want me to choose only one?
    My heart always go first to the Purples but then the debate starts: Rachel, the Jewel will be much prettier, hmmm... look at that Red no, the Blue, the Blue,,, and so on.

    I always wanted to knit the original Baby Shane Blanket but these days I am on a kick of short rows garter so it may become some trial of garter stripes blanket with some short rows thrown in for good measure!

  43. I'd love to make a Baby Shane blanket in the purple palette

    ReplyDelete
  44. I love the red colourway. I think I would try to weave a blanket with the yarn and have the colours shift from one to the other in the warp. Not sure what kind of pattern I would weave yet... maybe a simple twill.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I love the greens colorway. I love the Baby Shane blanket, too, but I think I'd make something more like a log cabin pattern (this one, maybe: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/log-cabin-throw--pillow).

  48. Hello friend! You know I can't resist trying to win some of your awesome yarn :)

    That super easy baby blanket you've linked to has been one I've been eying for a while now. I love the way the colours become the star. In this case, I would have to go with the jewel palette. I love the richness of the colours, and the lighter ones means that it's not season specific.

    I'm ayoungvoice on ravelry. Hope all is well! Say hi to Chris and Stella for me!

  49. I like the Blue to Yellow palette because of gradual color shift. It reminds me of mermaids or the ocean for some reason. I think I would make a shawl using that color-shift effect.

  50. I think that an earth tones palette would be fabulous-- browns, drab greens, maybe some gray & blue... You never look at nature & think "those colors don't go together". :-D I love zig-zag blankets!

  52. I am drawn to the Blues (I feel a song coming on!!) and have just come across a fabulous crochet pattern for a rosette-square baby blanket which would be adorable in that colourway.

  53. My favourite is definitely the Reds and I would probably make a blanket for my living room. I need a new one to curl up under and read a good book!

  54. Oh my my, all those colours!
    First off, I fell in love at first sight with your greens!
    For the three darker skeins, I'd make myself a lace cardi alternating colours, and then with the others ones I'd knit a small blanket and monsters for my brand new cousin (Yup, auntie is on the late side! But he is ADORABLE!)

    And maybe, if there is some yarn left (one can hope!) I'd mix it with the deep sea I have at home, and make a monster, FOR ME!

  59. I've knit the pastel, and I'm knitting the original up right now. I'd love to try the red version or the jewels next...though green is pretty awesome too. I'd either make another blanket (I do love the Baby Shane pattern) or I would make an awesome stripy cardigan. I have a think for stripes :)

  61. I think an autumn palette would be amazing with burnt oranges, yellows, reds, moss, and brown... I loved your amber colourway it was so rich and lovely...

    If I had to pick one blanket palette from your list I think it would be the blue to yellow but they are all so nice!

  64. I love the Red palette. It is exactly the kind of creative combination (i.e. not actually all red) that I don't think I could ever put together myself.

    If I won I would make a baby blanket. My brother's first baby is due in June and it would be quite the heirloom!

    The yarn would become sweaters for my nieces.

  80. I adore the reds palette, it reminds me of lava!

    I would use these colours to make a blanket for an Icelandic friend who is expecting a baby girl in a few weeks time. She has banned pink from the nursery, so I would love to make a blanket for little Freja that reflects her volcanic heritage! I think Mummy would approve. :)

    Once again, keep up the beautiful work Tanis!

  83. Its so hard to pick I love them all!! I guess if I have to pick it would be the green palette. Right now I'm feeling greens! It must be because spring is right around the corner.

  88. The Greens palette is dreamy, so is the blue to yellow AND the red, I could never really decide! I would probably want to make a blanket, it's such lovely yarn that I'd really want it to just be held as a keepsake for the family!
    There isn't really an Autumn / Earthy palette. Some people might like that!?

  89. I love the Blue to Yellow! A simple zig zag crocheted blanket would be beautiful and I do love to make them!

    I'd love to see you add a neutral option, the colors are so beautiful but I've been really interesting in shifting shades of grey, you could even have a lot of variance between purple/blue greys, dark grey. Oh, I love it just thinking about it.

  90. I like the Greens! I'd probably make a few of Veera Välimäki shawls, or a stripety sweater. :)

    ReplyDelete
  91. Oh, wow - there really is so much you could do with those colors. Like a ripple (as you mentioned), or maybe a knitted chevron blanket (though I'd probably go ripple since crochet is faster for the blankets. :D)

    And all the color palettes are great - it's hard to choose. I'd probably go for the Jewel palette. :)

  94. I think the Original Palette is my favourite. I would make a domino baby blanket for my new niece or nephew due to be born this Summer.

    ReplyDelete
  95. What a coincidence! I spent yesterday looking online for colour inspiration to make attic24 granny stripe blanket! i actually was thinking of purchasing one of your baby shane packages b/c i really want to try out your yarns but was not sure of the amts and how it would work out. Also, i was more looking for a rainbow palette. Whew! So to answer your questions:

    1. i love them all but for the blanket in mind, i think i would like the blue to yellow.. but the thing i really want is a rainbow one :)

    2. i would knit the granny stripe blanket from attic24 - though that flowers on snow blanket is amazing.. but i don't think i would get that done in time for baby3 :)

    3. you can reach me at peruseratlarge in ravelry

  96. Oooh, these are lovely, and so is the blanket. I am partial to the jewel tones. I'm not sure if I would make the blanket but I know I could come up with something lovely to make with this yarn. Thanks!

  98. I've knit the Baby Shane in the Pastel palette, but personnally, the Jewel palette is my favourite.

    I love the Baby Shane pattern and would knit it again...lots of babies due this year!

  99. I know these kits were meant for baby blankets, but I don't really like pastel colors and it seems that all the kits have them included. I guess I'd choose Jewel if I won. I would likely use individual skeins to make other items such as shawlettes, hats or mittens rather than a blanket. I would make a blanket if the colors were all earthtones; browns, greens, rusts, golds, deep reds. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I'm liking the blues. :) I would make a couple of shawls with those gorgeous colors.

    ReplyDelete
  101. It's so hard to pick one! I would say the Blues is my favorite, I would probably make a chevron blanket with it.

    One combo I would like to see is a more neutral, with possibly some blue or purple. One with charcoal in it, I love charcoal.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I like the Blue to Yellow and the Original. I'm not sure what I would make. I like the Baby Shane Blanket but have no babies to make it for.

    ReplyDelete
  103. I love the Greens palette. So many sunny shades of green, which is especially nice this time of the year. =)

    I would use this palette to knit the Radiating Squares baby blanket, with a few modifications, to make this blanket drift from light (in the middle) to dark (on the outside edges).

  105. 1. I love the Pastels color palette.

    2. I honestly don't know what I would make because the yarn hasn't told me yet. I have to feel it and play with and then I will figure it out... I do know that whatever it is, it will be stunning in your yarn.

I have noticed that a lot of new moms are going towards neutral colors, soft grays with maybe a soft pastel accent and it is beautiful. My family is growing with more grandchildren on the way and blankets for the baby are my favorite thing to make, they don't outgrow them.

  107. I think I was drooling a bit....

    I love the blue to yellow. It's got all my favourite colors in it.

    After perusing Ravelry, I loved Cery's Baby Blankie. Specifically this project - Baby Lavallee Blanet by squale.

    I think that might be my next baby project.

  108. Oh, the choices! I think I like the Jewel tone the best right now, but that could change. Not sure what I would make with this, but some shawl maybe? As for other colourways, I would like to see something in the brown range. Earth tones.

    :)
    Also, I saw that another reader suggested another palette for the kit- a rainbow palette- and that's what I was thinking as well, it would be great!

  110. Babies are all around me. A Baby Shane Blanket as been on my want to knit list for ages. I would make it in Reds or Blues, or perhaps, I should make one in each ....

  113. I'd love the blue to yellow, with a swap out of the teal for orange - the dark blues and greens would really let the yellow and orange play :) and it would be quite a toss up between the baby shane and a garter strip blanket - a cage match would have to determine the winner!

    ReplyDelete
  114. The jewel palette is definitely my favourite - babies should get awesome colours too, not just pastels!

    I'd probably use it to make a sweater, maybe striped or fair-isle, if there's enough. Or a bunch of awesome colourwork mittens. Maybe a replacement Fiddlehead mitten, for the one I lost.

    I've tweeted the giveaway, too!

  115. Wow! Great giveaway. Thanks, Tanis, for doing this. I think because spring is popping out all over now, I'm extra partial to the blues to yellow mix, but one thing I noticed looking at all the different colorways...they seem to play well together in almost any mixture. If I had the chance, I'd use the yarn to make a Baby Shane or perhaps some sort of mosaic pattern baby blanket.

  116. I really like the Red and Green palettes. Having a new grandson AND a new baby niece - a blankie would definitely be in order for one or both - perhaps two minis - one for each to carry.

  120. Love the purples! The other sets are lovely, but the purple one is entirely me.

    Not much of one for blankets, though, so it'd definitely have to be a huge stripey shawl!

  121. I'm really drawn to the pastel palette - it's just screaming spring to me! I would probably make a little stripey throw blanket for our couch - something to throw over a lap since it's still a little chilly at night.

  122. I love the purples, reds and jewels colourways. I would probably knit "hip in hemp" for myself or "colour me pretty" for one of my girls. Your yarns get lots of attention because of their intense colourings and knitting them is like a dream!

  133. It's super difficult to choose just ONE color. It's the reason I haven't been able to choose a colorway for the dipped infinity cowl! But I think I would go with the blues to green. I would probably make a baby blanket, as I do have a few wee ones to knit for in the next few months. I'm currently just starting an Ombre (with yarn that didn't work for another project) and I can't wait to see it finished!

  176. Those are all gorgeous colors! I would simply love to get a chance to play with them.

    I've been wanting to design a shawl with leaf motifs in shades of green, though I think I want a bit different greens than you you have in your current selection. I'm thinking more foresty and lush jungle. My plan is to start with a light color and slowly graduate to darker.

  179. I think the purples are my fave, but it would definitely be a tough choice... I would like to see a monochrome palette - varying shades of grey would make something lovely, I think.

    The design that has been speaking to me lately is the Wool Eater Blanket ( http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-wool-eater-blanket on Rav) although I can't deny that I'd be tempted to make a big squishy around-the-house striped cardigan, too.

  184. It was hard to decide, but I'd go for the reds.
    And I wouldn't knit a baby blanket, but rather something for myself: a simple raglan sweater with many stripes of different width with these beautiful colors! And with the leftover yarn, I'd knit a pair of stripey socks (matching the sweater or not!) and/or some fingerless gloves. If I'd feel adventurous, I would maybe go for a small fair-isle project on those gloves (or more stripes: I love stripes!).

Reminds me of a small print I bought several years ago that ended up inspiring the coulour scheme of an entire room. If I had that set I think I'd be inspired to make a nice throw blanket to go in the room.
