Ah, what fun! And congratulations on your 100th sale! You already know that I love Fluffy Cat yarn, and I liked Shrinking Violette from your last update best.

Jeanne said...

Congrats on reaching 100! All of your yarn is gorgeous and I don't know that I could pick one as my favorite - but I've always like Mermaid's Lagoon...and Copper Penny...and Budgie...ok, I can't pick. :-)

pendie said...

Well, although it's really impossible to pick one color as my favorite I did buy the rose garden color today so guess I'd have to say, for today, that Rose Garden is my favorite. Don't hold me to it as I change my mind every time I look! Congrats

pendie said...

Well, I'll pick rose garden but that's only because I bought a skein of it today. You can't hold me to that though because my favorite changes each time I look at your yarns. Congrats!

Lee said...

I would have to say that my favorite would have to be the foxglove, reminds me of when I was a little girl.

EVA SB said...

Congratulations on 100 sales.
It is well deserved - you have some truly yummy yarns.

Choosing a favourite was not easy but I think Foxglove stole my heart

TheBlackSheep said...

There are just too many good yarns in your shop to have a favourite. I won't enter the contest since I live abroad, but I did plug for you on my blog. Congrats on the 100th purchase! Here's to hundreds more.

Tara said...

So hard to choose! I think Aurora is my fave.

Mary Lou said...

Came here via Misadventures in Knitting. What beautiful yarn! I love the Beetle color. Black with shades of other colors in it is a favorite of mine, and this is lovely.

zoom said...

I always struggle with the NAMES of the colours influencing my colour choices. Same thing when I'm painting a room.

That being said, Breath of Spring is my favourite colourway today.

Not ready for handspun said...

Congratulations on this milestone!

Okay, I bought that glorious Orange yarn, which should make SIL a gorgeous pair of socks. She should feel spoiled on her birthday.

I'm still thinking about ordering Raspberry Beret for myself. And not just because I listen to is everyday on my iPod!

Mandi said...

I would have to say Moonlit Amethyst is my favourite. But as others have said- they are all very lovely and it really is hard to choose just one!!!

blissfulreflections said...

Congrats on your 100th sale!

All of your yarn is so gorgeous! If I had to pick one favourite, I would pick Moonlit Amethyst. But it was really hard to narrow it down.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Wow that is awesome that you have sold 100! And I love the Aurora Top Cat - but since I can't knit (and my crocheting is not really going well) I don't want to be entered, because the yarn is way to nice for me to wreck with my poor skills!

Linda D said...

After Midnight. Would love to see how it works up, the colors are wonderful!

Lila said...

Ooh, nice! Choose me! I think my favorite is copper penny.

Jessica said...

Congratulations! I really like copper penny, but it was a really hard choice (and not my usual color palette!)

Michelle said...

I came over via Monika so I hope she wins. :-) I really like the blue velvet color myself.

BeatrixB said...

wow - I thank you for having such a great contest! I love Tequila sunrise hands down!

Kelly-ann said...

You have some gorgeous colorways! I think I am in love with Iris ;)

Mr Puffy's Knitting Blog: said...

Ohhhh. It's all so pretty. But I particularly loved the tea rose colorway which I promptly snapped up!

JAB said...

Ooh! I like copper penny!

Jeanne said...

I just did a post and linked to your contest!

Karen S said...

Congrats on your etsy site...love the Iris colorway!

weezalana said...

I LOVE Blood Orange, but sadly, am unable to wear cashmere. *sniff* A close second would be Tequila Sunrise. Such a rich, gorgeous red!

Stephanie said...

Congratulations on 100 sales! I found out about your contest via Jeanne Knits. I think Bumbleberry might be my favorite colorway. :) Such lovely shades!

eclecticitee said...

So much beautiful yarn, how could one possibly choose! If I must, I would say definitely Iris is my favourite, but I would be happy with almost any colour you have.

And congrats on your milestone! That's so exciting!

My fave has to be Sugar plum Fairy,
gorgeous yarn!!!!!

kathryn said...

Beetle! I love semisolids that have a little variation. This one looks just great, especially in the MCN. Congrats on your 100th sale!

Lorraine said...

A new-to-me Etsy shop- very exciting! I love your "witching hour" and now I will be humming the Top Cat theme all day.

Congrats Ladies.

Louise said...

That's was a very difficult choice. I like so many of them! But my favorite is French Lilac.

Jean Ashley said...

Congratulations on your 100th sale! I must admit that Budgie is my favorite, with Sea Glass a close second, followed by Blue Jean Baby (can't help that...in addition to being one of my favorite colors, it's also one of my nicknames!) I came here by way of Monika (Smoking Hot Needles)...

aerya said...

I happen to love "Rocky Mountain Way--Stray Cat--Sport SW merino".

Psychgrad said...

I like so many of them -- my favourite would probably be : Copper Penny--Slinky Cat Fingering

me said...

I like budgie because it reminds me of a Quaker parrot that I know.

I would love to work with hand dyed yarn for a project

Katie said...

Your yarns are all so pretty! I have to say, though, I think that Pink Pearl is my favorite.

lookinout said...

I think I like mermaid's lagoon. I love blue-green mixes, but it was hard to choose.

analae said...

I would definitely vote for Victorian Gothic. Fabulous!

Knatolee said...

My favourite colourway is Blood Orange. Meow!

Lucy said...

Gorgeous colorways and congratulations! My favorite colorway is dandelion. It's so springy!

rrrose said...

Congrats! I've been checking out other coppery things lately so Copper Penny is my favorite... today(!).

Sheena said...

copper penny! lovely!

Jill said...

Oooh, Blue Jean Baby is my absolute fave. Gorgeous. Well, they're all gorgeous. But Blue Jean is gorgeous with emphasis. :)

Infinity Quilter said...

Congrats on the 100th sale. It would have to be between Copper Penny and Bleeding Heart for my favorite.

Beverly said...

I love Copper Penny and Creeping Phlox.

Wehaf said...

I am torn between Beetle and Girl Next Door!

Congratulations on hitting 100 sales!

Bluebird49 said...

I loce Breath of Spring--it's beautiful!

writeknitreadpurr said...

Tea Rose and Sugar Plum Fairy are my favs... oh, and Stonewashed rocks, too!

deirdre said...

It's between Copper Penny and Blood Orange, but honestly, all of your colours are gorgeous!

Elisabeth said...

Congratulations on your 100th sale!

How to pick? So many great colours and yarns. I think Sugar Plum fairy is my favorite. Anything knitted with it will seem like a dream!

Donna said...

Congrats! Sooo many pretty colors. My favorite is Bog/Alley Cat.

skylark said...

Duncan and I have been poring over the colour choices for HOURS! Duncan likes Creamsicle but I'm partial to Iris.

Nina said...

Hard decision on which colourway is a favourite.. there are lots I think are incredibly beautiful. However, each time my eyes are drawn to Bog. It's a lovely mixture of greens that go together so perfectly..

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

I'm going to select the Sea Glass colorway this time, but it is a difficult decision. Congrats on 100 sales, and continued success.

One Sheep said...

You guys never make things easy. like "Which of your children is your favorite?". That's a snap compared to picking just one of these yarns.

I love the shades in the Bog--Alley Cat-- SW Merino/Nylon fingering. I also love the Safari Markers.

ikkinlala said...

It's a toss-up between Beetle and Copper Penny - if forced to choose I think today I'd have to go with Beetle, but that wouldn't always be the case.

Congratulations on 100 sales!

gayle said...

Tough choice!
Sea Glass. Definitely Sea Glass. Or maybe Copper Penny. No, definitely Sea Glass. Or Iris...
Congrats!

Liz said...

Copper penny for sure. Thanks for the giveaway!
