    pick me — pick me

    with an ice storm on saturday and temps in the 20s this week, i really NEED this lovely warm cowl 🙂

  2. Samina

    That yarn looks oh-so-cozy, but I’m hoping it’ll cool down soon in Florida so I could knit up something like that & feel like I could actually use it!

  3. Roz

    What a nice cozy looking scarf 🙂 It looks like it would knit up really quickly so it would be keeping the lucky winner warm pretty soon this winter.

  4. Maureeen

    You are right what a lovely way to keep warm. It is cold here too, but I live in an area it is supposed to be cold so this is useful too.

  5. sharon

    It has even been cold here in balmy Vancouver! This would be a lovely combo to win! Great patterns and warm beautious yarn! Thanks!

  6. Sarah

    This morning’s cold was such a shock to the system. Pulled out long underwear, wool sweater, and mittens.

  7. Ivanna

    What beautiful yarn – just made my first piece with a Berroco yarn and am loving it. Gorgeous cables!

  8. Barb B

    Now that scarf is exactly what I need here in Winnipeg – it is minus 19 with wind chill of minus 26. please add my name to the contest.

  9. Knittingdancer (Teresa)

    We had a big temperature drop (27 degrees) yesterday, it was 74 at noon by 5pm it was already 47. This book would be great to make some warm knits to wear for days like this.

  10. Olivia

    Such gorgeous patterns. And they look so comfy! Would be useful on the frozen tundra that is the flat midwest 🙂

  11. Barb T

    I always love new pattern books and the yarn looks delicious. I’d love to be rubbing my face in it right now IF it weren’t almost 70F outside. Please share with me.

  12. Steph N

    We’re not going to crack 40F for the next few days, so the cowl looks especially appealing right now. Count me in for the drawing, please!

  13. mollysusie

    Yay! Thanks for the giveaway! It was so warm here in Ohio I left my windows open while I went out for the night, then the temp dropped from 60oF to 40oF with frozen rain. I needed warm yarn and a cozy scarf!

  14. Melissa

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway! I always appreciate the chance to win gorgeous yarn and patterns. 🙂

  15. Kathy H

    Our temperatures have been hovering right around 0! Great time to stay in and knit! Always like a new book.I read knitting books like novels.Thank you for all your great give-aways.

  16. Aimee

    My sister saw this book online a few days ago & keeps asking me to knit up this cowl for her.

    Thanks Wearwithall & Knitty for offering such a great prize!

  17. Kelly

    Great book, really pretty yarn, & 2 stitches per inch means it is finished this winter not next. Thank you.

  18. LindaR.

    Arizona’s current cold snap (it’s below freezing at night, guys!) has me searching out my warmest hat and scarf. I’d love to add this one to my (small) stockpile! Thanks for the giveaway.

  19. Dari

    Our weather here has done the same!! Lows in the teens this week, makes a person not want to go outside! What a lovely giveaway! Those patterns look scrumptious!

  20. Alessandra Parsons

    I was just thinking it would be nice to have something warm and cozy to wear at the moment. Thanks for another lovely giveaway.

  21. ardosa

    what IS with the weather – I feel like I’m back in New England instead of the South West!

    At least there hasn’t been snow with my cold weather. I still do use scarves and gloves here.

  22. Chris

    Even 30F sounds warm right about now. It’s been cold here. Only 13F now, brrr! So, yes, that lovely giveaway sounds very appealing!

  23. Tami

    ooh, that scarf looks so cozy and warm… Thank you for the news about a new book — and the lovely giveaway… I send you wishes for warmth!

  24. Erin

    Gorgeous pattern and yarn! It won’t be getting quite as chilly here, but I’m always cold, so I’m always looking to snuggle up in cozy knitwear! 🙂

  25. Christy

    30F? It’s currently a balmy 4F here in Colorado today (with a projected -2F as a low tonight). I’d love to win some yarn and patterns to keep me warm!

  26. maura

    ooooh! look at that beautiful yarn. hope I win, thank you for a great blog and an excellent giveaway.

  27. cohmomto3 (Mary Fran)

    Still warm in New England today, but the cold is coming! Just keep knitting, just keep knitting…

  28. Nigel Pottle

    I’m in Mexico where it is not cold at all. I almost didn’t enter this contest, but then thought, wait, because I’m in a place where right now I don’t need warm winter wear, I’m more likely to win the prize. So here I am – and don’t worry, I will not be in Mexico all year. I live in Vancouver BC the rest of the time, so you don’t have to mail the package to me here.

  29. Kate

    That yarn is BEAUTIFUL.
    Bulky is my fave because I am easily distracted and need instant gratification!

  30. Cynthia Acheson

    That book looks just about right for January weather! Thanks so much for anther great giveaway.

  31. Eliza

    We just experienced a 42 degree temperature drop and this fabulous giveaway would be most welcome. Thank you!

  32. sillylittlelady

    gorgeous yarn! I moved this weekend and the day we packed the truck it was 4 degrees outside, unpacking the next day it was 14! Cold weather came out of nowhere it seems, better to knittin’ cozy things!

  33. Zaelia Blue

    It’s snowing outside right now. I’m so thankful I can knit lovely things like this scarf to help keep people warm. Thanks for the chance to win this lovely book and yarn to knit a pattern from it. How awesome?

  34. Sage

    That’s a gorgeous colorway. It’s even been cold here in California, calling for extra scarves and cowls!

  35. Sandy

    What a beautiful cabled scarf and cowl! They will certainly keep the chills away. Thanks for a great contest.
    Stay warm everyone and enjoy your knitting time.

  36. Rachel S

    I think I’d go with the cowl with a nice chunky button to go with the large scale cable. So cozy looking!

  37. Karen

    I’ve never encountered knitting skill trivia before. Hopefully I’ll know the answer if I’m selected! I love the Yarnery!

  38. Fara

    That yarn looks so warm and squishy! It was 25F this morning when I was walking the kids to school. I could use this scarf! Thanks

  39. Sara PM

    The scarf looks like fun to knit after several cowls that I’ve finished. I may have to come in for yarn even if I don’t win. 🙂

  40. M.F.Peterson

    My little family of 4 is in desperate need this season of lots of new, warm, handknit woolens. There’s only one handknit (a hat) amongst us all. I hear some clicking needles in my future…

  41. Dixie

    Hmm, I’ve been coveting that book for a while–a “skill” question would be tough for me–always a beginner–but I could give it a try.

  42. Claudia

    I love the Yarnery shop-I love to stop by when I’m in St. Paul. And I’ve seen this book-would love to have it and knit out of it. 🙂

  43. Carolyn Frank

    I have been cold all morning and wishing I had a comfy scarf around my neck to keep me warm. This scarf looks just like I want around my neck. Would love to win.

  44. Kasey

    I need another cabled neck accessory! Seriously, my husband wants me to go to the Sierras. You wouldn’t want me to freeze… would you?

  45. Reb

    My 8 year old has been going on about how he could knit something then braid it. This would make a great kit for him! To make for me.

  46. Jenny C.

    It was the coldest weekend of the year here (highs in the mid 30s-40s, lows in the 20s), and my apartment of course didn’t have heat because the heater is broken. Brrr. Definitely wore plenty of warm woollies, and this prize would help me ward off another weekend like this.

  48. Lisa

    Today was this Southwest girl’s first day back at Midwest College–and it was COLD. I’d love to be able to make some warm things for me and my friends!

  49. Debbie H

    I’ve been wanting this book for a while – been meaning to go The Yarnery in St. Paul to get it, but haven’t made it there yet. I would love the book and yarn to go with it. Thanks!

  50. Anita Dodds

    Scared to answer a question but it would be fun to try. It is 9 degrees mid-day. Burrrrrr it is cold.

  51. Rebecca Rohrkaste

    Wonderful yarn, and the book looks interesting, too! I’d love to win, and knit up that scarf.

  52. Anne

    I just bought a new coat….bout time. Old one was a cheapie and five years old. Would love something fabulous and cably to wear with it.

  53. Linda

    Either scarf would look great with my thermals and I’m not coming out of said thermals until May!! Brrrr.

  54. RachelG

    Love that cowl with the big button. It is so cold here right now I’ve been wearing all of my scarves/cowls– needing more!!

  55. Karen

    Nice book, lovely yarn. I am currently knitting myself a slouch hat to accomodate my ponytail because it’s been hovering around the mid-30’s here in Seattle, and my ears have been complaining!

  56. Jean

    I’d love to win something–and that book and yarn look like just the thing! How lovely for someone (maybe me?)

  57. sherinik

    Well, it’s summer here…but never too soon to start knitting winter weights (they’re sooo much quicker than summer weight!) and I’d love a cowl in that pictured yarn.

  58. Josiane

    The cowl and scarf look so cozy! I’d love to knit one of those. I’d also be curious to have a closer look to the other patterns in the book: the little I see on the small pic of the cover looks nice.

  59. Robbie

    I love cowls. They are great Tito wear on cool mornings and in chilly offices. I’d love to win this book and yarn and put them to good use.

  60. dandelionsalad

    Was just thinking last night that I could use a pattern book for knitting as I tend to have collected more knitting techniques type books. Love the yarn and cowl/scarf, too.

  61. Nicole

    Your contests are to die for! Recently knit lots of things in super bulky. I love how quickly they knit up!

  62. Kathy

    It’s been unseasonably warm up here in Wasilla, Alaska, but now the weather is heading back down to our usual 20 degrees or cooler temperatures. Would LOVE a cozy, comfy, cushy scarf to keep me warm!

  63. Beverly

    If the 2 projects you show are typical, this must be a terrific book–a great addition for my library.

  64. KimW

    I saw this book at the bookstore — it went right on my Wish List! Very fun contest to win yarn too!!

  65. Tina_R

    Baby it’s cold! Even in the desert, we’ve had hard freeze warnings. Need warm woolies! Please!

  66. Jo-ann

    I know someone who would love either of the scarf or the cowl for her giant European Adventure at the end of the year. Please can I be lucky this time?

  67. Heather

    Just moved to the Twin Cities, and The Yarnery is my favorite LYS so far. I was eyeing the book in their store, and will probably buy it sooner or later, unless you give it to me for free first!

  68. danielle nabozny

    scarf? cables? dont need one, not sure about the other…..but I LOVE that scarf!!!! And I want it!!!!

  69. Rebecca M

    30 F? Bah! The high here today was about 12. I need all the warm knitted things I can wrap myself in.

  70. Beth

    Cables were a favorite before I started knitting. Love them even more now that I know who deceptively simple they are!

  71. Jennifer

    More books= more layers… and then maybe the high of -3F today won’t seem so very chilly! Thanks.

  72. Julia

    Considering we’re barely near 40 here in Seattle, WA I could have used something like that this weekend! Count me in!

  73. Deb

    Heading out to a business trip in Minneapolis tomorrow–could DEFINITELY use some cold-weather hand-knits!

  74. Kristin

    Oh that yarn looks so yummy. And just because it might be unseasonably warm in many places lately, that doesn’t mean it won’t turn bitterly cold before winter is through. 😉

  75. Ummrania

    Wow, pretty stuff! Thanks for the giveaway. I would be afraid I would answer the question wrong.

  76. Fleur

    Oooh, a skill testing question. Brrrrrr, that is me getting nervous. Oh no, it isn’t it is me with clattering teeth because of the cold here in the Netherlands. Brrrrrrrrrr!

    Ciao, Fleur (Fleurtje-Eliza on Ravelry)

  77. Helen

    I just finished the coziest, squishiest cowl… just in time for the ikky cold snap here in the UK. Its times like this which makes me so glad to be a knitter!

    …now, to see if I can get hat and gloves out in time to keep the rest of me warm 🙂

  78. Lori

    I would LOVE to win the yarn and book. Yesterday morning it was 7 degrees here. We need all the warmth we can get!

  79. Jan

    The yarn has some beautiful colorways and with an expected high of 23 today, the scarf and mittens look delightfully warm and cozy.

  80. Aimee

    It’s sure cold enough for a fuzzy scarf now. My SIL made a cowl with that yarn for Christmas. I’d been trying to figure it out. (she lost the label).

  81. Anjanette

    Lovely and cozy. Just the right thing for a day like today! It was 14F on the dog walk this morning. Brrr!

  82. Pam

    Thanks for the giveaway chance! I’m excited about the book – I really want to knit the multi-colored stole most, and I’ve got a couple of ideas for my #2 really-want-to-knit spots.

  83. Meg

    You guys are probably thinking about knitting summer lace, but in my neck of the woods it has not gotten above 20F! and the nights have been below zero for a month. I’m sleeping in my woolies and this looks very sleep-in-able. Thank you!

  84. Jessie

    It’s 44.6 degrees here at the moment, which means I fully expect to see people cavorting in shorts and t-shirts in the unseasonably warm spring-like weather. However, it always gets cold again in January, so I’d love to knit some more lovely cozy things for when it happens!

  85. Kate

    This looks toasty! It is supposed to be real winter weather in my part of the world this week. Crossing my fingers. 🙂

  86. Jamie

    The scarf is beautiful. And since it was only 3 degrees when I got up – I could definitly use the scarf.

  87. susan

    Beautiful yarn and scarf. The book also looks awesome and I really hope I win, thanks for the chance!

  88. Kay April

    Love the Ravelry Knitty forum where people write notes to “Dear So and So”…and I would love to win a book and some yarn. Thanks!

  89. Carol R

    Thanks for hosting another great giveaway!

    This would make a beautiful present for my daughter’s birthday.

  90. Amanda E.

    Can I just say that I love the title of the book?! Plus, the scarf and cowl are gorgeous (I’m leaning more towards the cowl)!

  91. Tal

    It was very warm here in NC until yesterday, but now the temperatures are starting to drop again, and I would LOVE me a new scarf and some more patterns to drool over!

  92. Nuna

    I’m really interested in this book and the yarn is lovely. Here’s hoping the randomness is in my favor. <3

  93. tiffany p

    What lovely yarn and a beautifully designed cowl. So nice of those folks to sponsor a giveaway!

  94. Julie

    Thanx, Knitty! Do you deliver?? It’s 10 degrees here in the Twin Cities. I love Mary Lou’s designs; would love to win a copy of Wearwithall.

  95. Barb

    We are supposed to be down to 16 by next week Tuesday plus windchill off Lake Michigan. Having some yarn on my lap will help keep me warm.

  96. Karen

    I love this book and the great website that goes with it. I am currently knitting the Stole–such lovely color. Thanks for this great giveaway opportunity!

  97. Helen Horan

    Here in Oz it’s a toasty 35C (93F) with 40C+ (105F) expected tomorrow. That looks like a really handy book (one of those “goto” favourites). The scarf is lovely and would completely match my new Winter coat.

  98. Julia

    It’s not even supposed to get above freezing today where I am – I could definitely use some cozy knitting ideas!

  99. Carol

    The temperature dropped back to ‘normal’ here, time for more cozy knitting. I would love to win this book and yarn.

  100. Pilaar

    Lovely scarf…bad work, so busy I almost missed checking the blog and thus my one in 500+ chance of winning 🙂

  101. Sarah from Ctown

    Oh my gosh, that yarn looks scrumptious! And I love the cable cowl – that will definitely have to get added to my queue 🙂

  102. Jamie

    Oooo! I’ve been looking for a pattern exactly like the scarf with the button! Added bonus-the yarn looks amazingly snuggly!!

  103. Kathie

    Beautiful pattern, book & yarn!

    My daughter would love this, and she could actually wear it well!

    Love these contests – you always have the loveliest prizes. Hope to win one one day. 🙂

  104. Gail Korhonen

    I love scarfs. This one is gorgeous and looks so cozy. I took the opportunity to look at the book and really liked quite a few of the patterns.
