    Love your website. I was sick over the weekend and was not able to touch my yarn so I was looking for some new patterns instead and I found your site. Thanks for all of the great patterns and useful hints.

    • Denise Canela March 23, 2014 at 6:54 pm

      You’re welcome Alaina !

  19. Kelly V. March 18, 2014 at 6:08 pm

    I said in another comment that my favorite color of this yarn is strawberry. I do love this color, but it really depends on what I am making. I just recently started to loom knit and I am loving it. I also crochet. I do enjoy doing both, but it is good to switch up sometimes.

    • Denise Canela March 23, 2014 at 7:09 pm

      I sooooooooooooooooooooooooo agree – I switch favorite “everything” – except for my favorite color which is Yellow πŸ™‚ and my favorite ice-cream which is chocolate chip mint. Other then that – everything is up for grabs

  20. Kelly V. March 18, 2014 at 6:04 pm

    I guess I could say my favorite color this time of year is the strawberry color. It is a pretty springy color. But I also like pretty much anything in the pink color range and the purple color range.

  21. maria farias March 18, 2014 at 12:47 pm

    I would love to win free yarn!!!! It would be great so I would be able to make some beanies for my niece who sorry to say has a rare form of cancer and I am hoping and praying she’ll be recover soon… Thanks so much!!!!

    • Denise Canela March 23, 2014 at 6:06 pm

      Maria, I will put in a little prayer for her too. God is great πŸ™‚ . Here is a pattern and yarn I like for cancer patients – Click HERE

    My favourite colour is Ocean. Why?……Loom Knitting was shared with me during my recent Cruise on Grand Princess. Knitters and Knatters met on Sea Days at 9am. I loved having a circle of friends on board.

    Caron Simply Soft has been my go-to yarn for years. I’ve crochet countless baby blankets for friends and relatives, afghans for my children, and hats, scarves, etc. This past weekend I crocheted a lacy shawl with Simply Soft White for my sister’s upcoming birthday. I love how easy it is to work with, how soft it is, and the variety of colors.

  43. Christy March 4, 2014 at 6:34 pm

  57. Linda Jone March 2, 2014 at 12:52 pm

    Slowly getting back to looming after a few years away with family matters. Exited to get going not to mention finishing up several UFO’s packed away. We are early retiring soon (not totally voluntarily). I will be looming holiday gifts and thank you gifts..plus hats and mittens/fingerless gloves for a social work rehab organization.

    Thank you for the opportunity to enter this contest for a chance to win this wonderful yarn. Love it!!

    • Denise Canela March 2, 2014 at 11:12 pm

      Linda – stay tuned for my VERY easy to make fingerless gloves pattern. Hope to have it within the month.
      Good luck – would love for you to get that yarn for the rehab center! If you don’t mind coming back and sharing their info – would be great for others who might be interested in that location.

  58. Stacey Dawn March 2, 2014 at 12:52 pm

    Not sure why my comment won’t show up so I’m trying again….

    I love the soft colors….and the bold ones – they look soft, too! It would be such fun to make a slouchy hat with them!! (or two or three!)

    • Denise Canela March 2, 2014 at 11:09 pm

      Wow Stacey, Loved the blog. What beautiful pictures. Purple is my sisters favorite color and because I love her big time it was so nice to see so much of it on your site. The Gallery was especially nice – felt very relaxing.
      If you try the slouchy share some pics. Would love to see the hats in different colors.

  59. Stacey Dawn March 2, 2014 at 12:50 pm

    What beautiful soft colors – even the bold ones look soft!!

  60. Karen March 2, 2014 at 11:28 am

    Love the Caron simply soft yarn!!

  61. Barb N. March 2, 2014 at 11:01 am

    Thanks for having this contest. Who wouldn’t want more soft, shiny, squishy yarny goodness! Perfect for making more hats to donate to charity.

    • Denise Canela March 2, 2014 at 11:03 pm

      You are VERY welcome Barb. Always love to hear who folks donate to. If you feel up to it – come back here and let us know. πŸ™‚

  62. christina valentine March 2, 2014 at 9:52 am

    I love this yarn. Thanks for the chance.

    • Denise Canela March 2, 2014 at 10:05 am

      Hi Christina, I took a look at your Facebook page. So many cute things! I recommend folks click your name for a link.
      Love the Potty Punch Card. Great idea. I have a 17 and 13 year old – no need. Potty days are over until they get their own kids in about 10 years. But great for moms and dads with toddlers. The jewelry was very nice. I love handmade jewelry – more creative.

  63. Barbara Johnson March 2, 2014 at 9:47 am

    Thank you for the giveaway!

  64. Jo Harden March 2, 2014 at 9:18 am

    I really like the color Lavender Blue.

  65. Jennie Carr March 2, 2014 at 9:09 am

    Would love to win!!

  66. CHICHISWEETS March 2, 2014 at 9:01 am

    Thanx for chance to win. I can make some pretty baby items with the persimmon color.

  67. Lesley C March 2, 2014 at 8:31 am

    Love the persimmon! Thanks for the giveaway!

  68. Michelle March 2, 2014 at 7:53 am

    I would love to win a skein of orchid. So pretty.

  69. Cathi Blake March 2, 2014 at 7:35 am

    I’d like the pine ss. I’d TRY the cable hat for my husband. Thanks again for all you do!

  70. Roberta March 2, 2014 at 1:21 am

    I’ve never done cables before. I’d like to learn how

    • Denise Canela March 2, 2014 at 9:35 am

      Roberta, the pattern page includes a video. I go step by step on how to do the cables. It’s a lot easier then it looks. Watch it, try them and if you have any questions just post them in the comment section. I will try to answer them as best as I can.

  71. Jenni March 2, 2014 at 1:13 am

    Sunshine is my favorite, but I also like Strawberry and Persimmon.

    • Denise Canela March 2, 2014 at 9:30 am

      Jenni, I love when you comment here because I get a quick link to your site. Which I love. The newest post is calling my sweet-tooth out for a party. Oh Yeah!
      OK so my favorite color is yellow so of course I have to agree that the Sunshine is an AWESOME choice. A very pretty and happy color especially for this upcoming month of April.

  72. Ellen Gaynor March 2, 2014 at 1:09 am

    I love Caron Simply Soft for men’s chemo caps. Soft as baby yarn, colors men will wear!

    • Denise Canela March 2, 2014 at 9:24 am

      I agree that this is the perfect yarn for chemo patients. I tend to like to use a lot of darks and earth tones for men.
      Thanks for sharing that Ellen.

  73. DaFox March 2, 2014 at 12:55 am

    I just got some of this yarn in Bone. It has such a pretty sheen to it. If I knew what I was doing and could make myself a top of some sort with it, I would. But I don’t… yet. πŸ™‚ All of the colors are pretty, but if I had to pick one, I’d pick the light blue. I don’t know what it is really called because when I looked at the colors, this one said “Light Country”. The color next to it is peach and it was labeled “Light Country Blue” and then the blue to the right of it was labeled “Light Country Peach”. So whatever the middle toned blue is, not the one labeled Light Country Peach, but the one to the left of that… that is what I would pick because my nephew (he’s 6) told me light blue is his favorite color and I’d probably be making him something with it. It would be neat if the colors chosen could be worked into a project together. So honestly, I think all of the colors they have are beautiful and I’m sure everyone would be happy no matter the color received. Thanks for the giveaway!

    • Denise Canela March 2, 2014 at 9:22 am

      Hi DaFox, I enjoy your post so much. Thank you. I agree with you about the nice sheen to this yarn and I love the Light Blue. My favorite is called Soft Blue.
      Also thanks for the idea you gave Shawna to visit the local Oncology centers to donate hats. LOVE IT! Folks like you make this site more beautiful.

      • DaFox March 4, 2014 at 3:42 am

        Thanks! That is such a sweet thing to say. I’m enjoying your site so much! I do have to change my vote to the Soft Blue. It looked white on my screen, but I saw it in the store and it’s exactly the shade I was looking for. So… Soft Blue for me too! πŸ™‚

  74. Kim March 2, 2014 at 12:47 am

    Lovely colors. I really like the chocolate … and the blues … and the roses … πŸ˜‰

  75. Jo Ann Rangel March 2, 2014 at 12:40 am

    I would make some hats and blankets for donation to local hospitals.

  76. Leticia N March 2, 2014 at 12:35 am

    Such pretty colors. I really like the Iris.

  77. petra mullooly March 2, 2014 at 12:17 am

    how cool! I could make a nice baby blanket with that yarn

  78. Angela Reeves March 2, 2014 at 12:06 am

    Can I win this one please? And I want all the yarn to be the same color.
