I have a number of people that I need to give gifts to for the holidays and the patterns are fabulous. This would be a big help in projects for the holidays.

I love the patterns all but the Sweater with Bell sleeves would be perfect for dressing up and also wearing with jeans so that is my favorite.

I would love to knit the Capalet Sweater and if possible with the Aurora 4 or Zodiac yarn. Most of the other knitwear also look lovely. Like the long tunic: very special and elegant!

So yes, I wouldn't mind winning these patterns *wink*

Have a nice weekend, all! Ciao, Fleur (Fleurtje-Eliza on Ravelry)

#1--I would love to win these patterns because I have never knitted an adult sweater only knitted 2 children's sweaters.

Bluenana said...

#1 I'd love to win these patterns because this will be the push I need to move beyond hats and scarves and start knitting sweaters.

Bluenana said...

#2 The Raglan with Cables sweater is my absolute favorite of the patterns here. I once had a sweater that looked identical to this and I wore it until it was threadbare. That was nearly 10 years ago now, but every time I go shopping I continue to look for a sweater just like it to replace the original. Now I can make one!

Brooke said...

I so deserve these patterns! I just had my second baby and I haven't had any new, non-maternity clothes in over 4 years. I'd love to make a custom fit!

StaceyKnitsIt said...

Raglan VNeck Pullover is my favorite design.
Something I would enjoy wearing!

I should win these patterns because I will knit at least one For Sure and will post photos to over 300 Friends plus in Groups to view.

Audrey Friedman said...

I'd like to win because I'm a regular Sandra Singh reader, and I'm a yarn snob. I won't waste my time knitting with junk yarn, and Karabella patterns and yarns rock! I'd love to knit some of these designs for a friend who is dealing with a terminal illness. She is proud of my work, and knows how much love is in each stitch!

Anonymous said...

I should win these patterns because I have a large family to knit for and can always use new and fashionable ideas!

I love the Aurora Sweater with Shawl Collar because it's something that is dressy enough for work but still flirty enough for after hours!
