Dream in Color Giveaway

Share Button

The time has come again for a juicy new giveaway from Dream in Color yarns. And just in time! This holiday I see crafters working their little fingers to nubs. What better way to look forward to post-holiday selfish knitting than with a special handdyed skein of  your very own?

This month Dream in Color is tempting us with a lovely fingering weight merino cashmere blend in a green/purple fusion.  This is an exclusive colorway of Smooshy with Cashmere. *Swoon*. Check it out!

Of course, the giveaway includes a free pattern to go with it! The pattern for this great yarn is a men’s scarf called Opa! But this would be great for anyone…including yourself!

Want a chance to win? Let us know what selfish knitting you are planning for January by commenting below by Sunday, December 4th. Please leave your contact info (Ravelry name is fine) and we’ll contact 10 lucky winners!

Happy Knitting and Good luck!!

  4. marciepooh Says:

    My selfish knitting will be to continue my ferny shawl and maybe another pair of socks.

  5. michelle Says:

    Selfish knitting right now is ruled but my Beekeeper’s Quilt, I love knitting all those little puffs! (CraftyCupcake on Rav).

  6. aqf Says:

    For some reason, I had been thinking that, as an experienced knitter, I was somehow above knitting hats. I have discovered that I was wrong, and now want to Knit All The Hats. Mostly for me.

  7. Annette Riebe Says:

    Ohhh come January I plan to finish my Fireside and then knit Diamond Crossed Vest.  And I’m sure I owe myself a new pair of socks.  With this yarn I have a lovely cowl in mind!!

    I’m MelaGal on Ravelry!

  8. hepkitten Says:

    I’m going to try and make time to finally work on a complex project for myself…maybe a sweater? Having that gorgeous yarn to work with would certainly help inspire me! –hepkitten from Ravelry

  9. Dianaburrell Says:

    Pretty yarn!

    My selfish knitting for January will be a sweater. Haven’t decided on a pattern yet, though.

  10. woolite Says:

    after the holiday knitting quiets down I plan on making myself some socks that I would wear in bed, either cashmere or angora. Really soft ones that would never work with shoes.

  11. Meadow Campbell Says:

    Amna sweater (on Ravelry) – can’t wait!

  12. Irenelouise Says:

    Just for me a cardigan in a pretty hand dyed merino.

  13. Snylin Says:

    LOVE Dream in Color. Would definitely do a Smooshy scarf for myself in January, just in time for the sub-zero temps!

  14. MaryEllen Klusacek Says:

    I’ve been making a few Christmas gifts, but the other night I started the Bilateral Cardigan for myself. I thought it might be nice to have at least one new knit for me in the new year!

  15. twinspiration Says:

    I’m gonna be working on a Wispy cardi for myself!  soft, comfy, and a perfect pallet to try some embroidery on.

  16. Elaine Says:

    Hoidays will be over!…January knitting will finally be sweater month FOR ME!

  17. Angela Mann Says:

    I am going to knit myself a cardigan using yarn I bought during a Black Friday sale.  Since I have never knit myself a sweater or a cardigan this is truly indulgent for me!

  18. Vicki Watts Says:

    I have at least 10 works in progress for friends and family, but I am selfishly going to make myself a cowl AFTER all the gifts and WIPs are done.  My birthday is coming up in December and this yarn would be a good gift for me (but I will probably end up giving it away, just can’t resist)!

  19. Martha Says:

    Oh, this yarn is lovely!  I’ve just queued up a couple of Anne Hanson’s patterns after coveting them for a long time, and plan to start an Autumn Arbor Stole after the holidays.  She has lots of patterns for fingering weight yarn that the DIC would be perfect for!

  20. Kathy Says:

    I plan on knitting another Romi shawl for me!

  21. Rebecca Rowley Says:

    I can’t wait to finish the sweater that has been languishing and get started on another.  Sweaters for me!

  22. felis44 Says:

    Wow!  What a gorgeous colourway.  I’m planning on knitting a hat and gloves for myself – every time we go out, my kids have nice handknit hats and scarves but I just pull on cheap fleece ones!  Time to rectify that…

  23. Kgauthiertakacs Says:

    How pretty! Love the color! I am going to make a cozy pair of wool socks for myself :)

  24. Marianna B. Says:

    Ooh, I plan to knit a few wonderfully warm & luxurious things just for me!  A new scarf is chief among them.  This yarn looks awesome

  25. Fkeefe Says:

    Oh, what to knit?  I think I want to try making a hat for the first time!  Or perhaps a cowl?  Haven’t done one of those either, and there are so many great patterns out there! 

  26. Alimo Says:

    I will continue to work on my sweater… someday I will finish it!! This yarn looks gorgeous!

  27. Amy Says:

    I’m going to make myself some fingerless gloves in a decadent yarn because my hands get very cold when I’m on the computer.

  28. Melissa B Gabehart Says:

    Rav name : tezcatlipoca98  Real Name:  Melissa

    OMG, January knitting, there is going to be so much of it.  I’m going to do one of those humping deer hats for myself in off-white and burgundy wool, I’ll take a stab at that double knit hat from Knitty, I also have the yarn to do the starfish shawl from Knitting Nature and if I start it in Jan maybe I can have it done when weather is nice?  I can’t wait for January.

  29. Marie Havrankova Says:

    I am a selfish knitter right now, finishing my fair isle pullower. But then I have 2 cardigans to make for my husband and after that, it might be some lace scarf for me…

  30. Opaitich Says:

    My local yarn shop, Mia Bella in Highland Park, Illinois, is collecting caps for chemo patients year round.  I set a goal for myself to knit/crochet and donate at least 3 caps (1 man, 1 woman, 1 child) each month.  I think I will double my goal for January.

  31. Heather Says:

    I want to finish my socks that I have restarted twice and my double Saroyan that has been languishing as I knit scarves for Christmas presents.

  32. Debbie Tyber Says:

    I am selfishly hoping to finish a sweater from Vogue Magazine.  A Kaffe Fassett design, simple turtleneck that uses yarn I bought from Webs a year ago.  Red and brown.  Finally getting aroung to it.  I would (selfishly) make an entrelac hat or two out of this yarn. Choose me!  Please.

  33. Tamsyn Mihalus Says:

  38. Txcatwoman9 Says:

    I have yarn for a sweater, a shawl and socks for myself.  I have a tube of beads that would be lovely with the giveaway yarn…hint, hint!

  39. Nancy Says:

    Will  start  on  cardis  for me  with  entries  for  the  fair  season in  mind and  thus  original  designs  in  all  categories.

  40. gina376 Says:

    I’m going to finish a pair of socks I started from the book. I finished the first one but didn’t start the second because my holiday knitting list is too long. Does that count?  (And I’m hoping my kids picked out some fun yarn for me, so that will be knit in Jan as well)

  41. Galloping Jester Says:

    I am planning on the Elphaba pullover for myself. I cant wait to get started!

  42. Christina Habberjam Says:

    I’m planning on knitting these crazy awesome legwarmers for myself in January:

    I have a cable cardigan in progress that has been parked since March when the stress levels soared sufficiently for errors in practically every row. After the holiday season, I am dying to pick it up so I can wear it before the cold weather has gone completely!

  50. Darlene Vanderhoof Says:

    My selfish knitting involves a shawl for me of various stash I have along with a pattern I found at my LYS!! Very excited to see it all come together.  It will also be the very first item I have ever made for myself! I Also plan on making a scarf for me after having made and gifted over 10 for Christmas – and this beautiful yarn in the giveaway is everything I love – from the color, to the hand – I can already feel it caressing me in warmth and love!

  51. Shirley Pastore McCormack Says:

    Oh, how I’d absolutely love to make a warm shawl with this wool!

  52. Bugsnbobbin Says:

    I plan to make myself a couple of hats – all the ones I have end up in my daughter’s room.  Hm.  I also have several shawls and wraps planned, to ward off the cold while I am at my desk.

  53. Marcena Squeakie Williams Says:

    I am not really a selfish crocheter. I love to make things for others. Gift’s out of no-where… I do plan on making a scarf for myself but am really looking forward to making my sister a sarong and this yarn would be PERFECT for it. :-)

  54. Debbie Constable Says:

    I am going to make myself a poncho!  Yes, I said a PONCHO!!  :)

    I’m Yammamamma on Rav.  :)

  57. Eighteggs Says:

    I wish I could move on to more selfish stuff, but if I’m not playing christmas catchup, I’ve got 3 (three!) Friends with babies due in January. Knit knit KNIT!

  58. Helenmelston Says:

    Since I have been churning out slouchy hats for Christmas gifts and have been resisting the urge to adopt one as my own, I plan to knit ONE MORE for myself before I return to knitting on my sweater that is hibernating for the holidays.

  59. Huimeilei Says:

    A pair of Bella’s Mittens is definitely planned :)

  60. Kristen Delaney Says:

    I’m deep in Christmas gift knitting mode and I’m finding myself dreaming of shawls.  I’m thinking I’ll cast on the Narnia shawl for myself once I finish all this gift knitting.  Hopefully I’ll be able to cast on before Jan, though!  Thanks for the contest!

  61. The Scorpio Woman Says:

    My selfish knitting I’ll do will be a shawl with Noro yarn.  It’s going to be beautiful

  62. RandiMichelle Says:

    Hoping that January will finally mean I can knit myself the Commelina Scarf or the Geodesic Cardigan.

  63. Jamie Says:

    I’m planning to knot another Cassidy cardigan. The first time I ran out of yarn so I could’t make the hood. This time I hopefully bought more than enough.

    I love DIC yarn!

    “Paradise” on Ravelry

  64. Cara Says:

    I like your yarn, but I’m a weaver, not a knitter.  :(  I’d love to be entered anyway.  I’m working on some towels and a shawl.

  65. Heather Says:

    I’m making infinity scarves!
    Ravelry: TheHeatherMarie

  66. Greytknits on Ravelry Says:

    I love Dream Yarns!  Glad you asked about selfish knitting, cause mostly that’s all I do….ONT at the present time, two pairs of socks, 1 cowl, that is social knitting, because I can’t knit and talk at the same time unless it’s really easy conversation ;-), a hat because the weather is changing and I saw an adorable pattern on Rav, watching and waiting for yarn to be delivered, from Webs (natch) for a RED sweater, for me.  Plus some UFOs that are so old I can’t even remember them.

  67. Stephaniebuzzella Says:

    I’ll be knitting myself an infinity scarf :) can’t wait!

  68. vsidart Says:

    The cabled scarf I’ve been dreaming about since I started knitting!

  69. Beth Roth Says:

    I want to add more scarves and small shawls to my wardrobe, so my selfish knitting will go in that direction. I’m also tempted by the various modular blanket patterns that are trending right now, but I’m not sure I’m motivated enough to complete one!

  70. Ericka Smith-Schubart Says:

    I haven’t even thought about my own projects for January! I have never tried socks and I want to :)

  71. danielle Says:

    I’m going to pull out my scrap yarn and head over to my grandma’s and learn how to make granny squares for a thow.

  72. Rachel Says:

    A Fireside Patchwork Afghan so I can learn cabling, Fair Isle and working with multiple colors. (jazzlvr on Ravelry)

  73. Janice Says:

    My selfish knitting will be to work on my 5-color brioche sweater (in yarn purchased from WEBS). It’s going to be sooo warm!

  74. desertneedles Says:

    I am spoiling myself with a large, square, alpaca and silk Happ shawl. I am following that with a large cotton, maybe bamboo (yet to be purchased) cicular shawl for the summer months. I deserve both of them.

  75. PlantsAreNeat Says:

    Whee! As soon as the last Xmas item is off the needles I’m starting my first-ever gownup sized cabled cardigan. I have a lovely tweedy slate blue wool (courtesy of WEBS back warehouse, of course) and I’m jazzed about the pattern “Edgewater” by Glenna C.

    And that sweater could certainly use a scarf or hat friend. Or mittens for elegant moments. You can find me on Ravelry as PlantsAreNeat, if I’m one of the lucky ones.

  76. Mabuchan Says:

    I can’t wait to get the holiday knitting over with!  I plan on knitting a shawl just for me in January.

  77. Kristen Says:

    Socks for me!  I’m lazyknittanh on Rav.

  79. Chris18940 Says:

    A hat and matching mittens (or gloves) sound good to me!

  80. Nicky Steffel Says:

    The yarn looks gorgeous. Would love to be selfish, however my Opa in Germany would love  a scarf almost named after him :) !!!

  81. Valerie Says:

    That yarn is utterly lovely, I’d definitely find some selfish knitting for it! ;-D

  82. Linda Says:

    Socks. It’s getting cold.

  83. Knitter Kitter Says:

    My selfish knitting is going to be a sweater for me!

    Raverly name: rekhmina

  95. Mona Cheah Says:

    My selfish knitting is purely stashbusting. Knitting in a tropical country with loads of wool in my stash will be a challenge so I will be doing a boatload of lace.

    I am knitnut on Ravelry

  96. Danielleb Says:

    I have 2 shawls that I keep pretending that I’m going to give away, but I know full well that I’m going to keep them.  Haha!

    I’ve had a cowl started for months that I can’t wait to finish for myself.  I’ll be rethinking that plan if I win this beautiful yarn though. 

  98. Rita Hartman Says:

    I am making one of those cutie headbands with a flower that is oh so hip now. Cold is okay if you’re stylin’ in hand knits!!

  99. KathySue Says:

    I will make myself a shawl with Romi’s newest Muses pattern. I immediately fell in love with the slightly off kilter cables, and the edge is so unique. Color? Maybe Swoon would be perfect!!

    I am KathySue on Ravelry.

  100. Kathryn Says:

    My selfish knitting for January is the Trellis and Vine Pullover from Interweave Knits, Fall 2009, in Valley Yarns Deerfield, Frost Gray, thanks to the awesome Webs Deal of the day 11/24! I can’t wait! It is going to be my first sweater!

  101. Kris Says:

    I can’t wait to start my Smokehouse Vest in Teal Berkshire Bulky.  Casting on January 1st or when I’ve finished my Christmas knitting and 2 other WIPs – whichever comes first!

  102. NanciKnits Says:

    My selfish knitting will be a shawl.  For Me. Me.Me.
    What a great giveaway and a beautiful colorway!

  103. KallieKY Says:

    A selfish knitting project?  I think they all are in my world  :)  I plan to make a couple of cardigans during the cold weather.  I love a yoke design.

  104. Editorabc Says:

    Oh, come January I will be knitting a few purses I’ve always wanted to knit, but the patterns got put on the back burner because of the holidays! I’m EditorABC on Ravelry :)

  105. Sarah Jane Says:

    Whatever my Ravelry queue tells me is next!  I’ve got it perfectly organized for the holidays so I can keep on track.  Maybe my first shawl?  There’s so many hats, mittens, and scarves in my near future I can’t think that far ahead!

  106. ThatCleverClementine Says:

    I’m going to start on CocoKnits Maude sometime … soon … ish … I hope. I’ll do some math fu, and work it up in some MadTosh tml, I think.

    For me! For me!


  107. Kdebner Says:

    I started a luxurious scarf for myself before all the Christmas knitting and plan to finish that.

  108. sbm Says:

    I’m waiting impatiently to knit myself Argonath by Susan Pandorf in MadTosh Pashmina in Mare.  It’s my reward for completing all the holiday knitting I’ve tasked myself with.  I know it’s going to be fabulous!

  109. Jwalton Says:

    My January for me knitting will be the Lanesplitter skirt from Knitty. I am currently considering my Noro colorway choices as I work on holiday projects.

  110. marie sierra Says:

  111. Sherry MacCullouch Says:

    I have my wool purchased (in a beautiful green/blue/turquoise) colour and I’m planning to make myself my second oh-so-beautiful Salina sweater by Kim Hargreaves which was published in Rowan Vintage Knits in 2005. I’ve almost given myself carpal tunnel syndrome, making scarves and berets this year for my huge Christmas list and office co-workers. I had start in mid August. So I’m oh so ready to start on something for myself!

    Cheers to everyone in your shop. I look very forward to all my emails that I receive from you.

  112. Judy L Says:

    I’m knitting myself an Endless Knitted Cardi Shawl. Can’t wait! I’m “iloveafarmer” on Ravelry.

  113. mary! Says:

    January will be dedicated to fabulous socks!
    Unless of course I score some swoon, then I’ll have to
    Search for the perfect lace shawl pattern.

  115. Heather M. Says:

    I just finished 2 selfish knitting projects – Stripe Study and Smock Slouch hat.  I have a Paulie sweater of sock yarn on my needles and I am itching to make a pair of socks for me!

  116. Julianne Q Says:

    I want to finally make a sweater!

    I’m ulianne on ravelry.

  117. Hohomuffin Says:

    I want to finish the Japanese Garden Shawl that’s on my needles, and continue the hexipuff madness!

  118. Babydstuff Says:

    Knitting? Never! It’s all crochet for me! Fingering is my favorite weight, and I just used Dream in Color yarn to make the Plumeria shawl…my next DiC project would definitely be another shawl-type object – I’m obsessed! I’m craftwich on Ravelry, and do you know where your hooks are?? ;)

  119. Amy Mason Says:

    I have 3 or 4 hats that I jus got yarn for that I will be knitting up after all my Christmas gift knitting is done!

  120. Lynette Says:

    My selfish knitting project is to start my Philosopher’s Wool kit I’ve had in my stash for over 10 years. It will be a joy to finally cast on. (passionknit on Ravelry)

  121. Maureen Says:

    What a great yarn.
    As for what I plan on knitting is a sweater coat. I have a pattern I just need to get the yarn. I love wearing sweater coats in the morning and at night when I get home.
    This way I can do one to my specifications.

  122. Kim Says:

    My selfish knitting will be to tackle a cardigan for myself as well as one of the many shawls that have been sitting in my Ravelry queue.

  126. Sara Says:

    Ooh, I’d love to win this. I’m selfishly knitting a scarf in Madtosh Merino Light this winter. I’m silkworm77 on Ravelry.

  127. Micki D Says:

    I’m planning on starting a v-neck cardigan with a lace collar!  Crossing fingers and toes that both afghans that are Christmas gifts get finished in time.

  128. Kathleenjones Says:

    I’ll be breaking my ‘curse of the sweater’…for many years I would start a sweater for a new ‘squeeze’ only to break up just before it was finished…as a result my husband would not let me make him a sweater….but now we’ve been married 22 I am taking the risk!  I figure it is really cold in Winnipeg in January so the likelyhood of breaking up that month is pretty low..

  129. Jackie Says:

    Wow!  Amazing!  I already have the Seaside Shawlette lined up for me as soon as I can get to it!  (Ravelry ID is jacrae)

  130. Andi Says:

    I’m going to make myself s warm lace shawl & some socks to match!

  134. Kellysirishred Says:

    I plan on making Amy Herzog’s Twinnings with some Cascade Venezia. Of course I should be finishing my husband’s cardi, a grumpasaurus for a friend, weaving in ends on my sister’s gloves, and burning through the barrels of sock yarn I have in my closet… but oh well.

  135. Carole Says:

    I am planning to knit myself a cowl and some matching fingerless mitts with some yummy bamboo/cashmere/merino blend I bought in Rhinebeck this year!

  136. Mara Bonsaint Says:

    I am planning to knit myself an Albers cowl in January, but maybe the Smooshy with cashmere would be perfect for the Damson shawl I’ve been wanting to knit.

  137. Jen/StormCoast Says:

    Having just finished my husband’s Valentine’s Day 2009 present (Knitty’s Binary Scarf), I intend to make myself a stranded colorwork scarf in nummy Cascade Lana D’Oro!

  138. SimPhyllis at Ravelry Says:

    My selfish knitting for January is to make a shrug from some black Malabrigo laceweight I’ve been hanging on to.  Still looking for that perfect pattern!  I tell you what, though — if I won that gorgeous Dream in Color, I might adjust my plans.  *Swoon* is right!

  139. Bonniebw - Ravelry Says:

    Planning a sweater coat – a nice big project to keep my knees warm this winter!

    Yes, January is devoted to selfish knitting! I expect I’ll be making at least one cabled sweater, some mittens, and probably a shawl of some kind, just for starters. And hopefully, I’ll be doing some selfish spinning and weaving (I’m getting a loom for Christmas!!!).

  144. Carolmatz Says:

    My projects for January are warm socks and an infinity scarf.

  145. Mary Brinton Says:

    Selfish knitting! Well, let’s see – I really NEED some new socks! But this begs to be a lovely shawlette or scarf. It gets very cold in winter.

  170. Besslibby Says:

    I started a beautiful beaded lace shawl last January, and put it down after a little while because I needed to work on other projects.  I’d love to work on this again.  And I need to knit up a skein of my homespun into a scarf for myself.

    Hoping to finish Webs Deep Breath Sweater (Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca/silk, navy) in January.  My first top down sweater!    I’ve been knitting Christmas socks for my family and have a break before I need to start the next grandchild’s sock (baby due in March, have knit 8 so far), so I decided to knit something for myself.  It’s been a long time since I’ve done that (7 years?)…..

  179. Cate Says:

    I think I’m going to finally get to the Daybreak. 

  180. kate Says:

    In January I am making myself socks. I should be hatted-out by then.  And i plan to crochet something from  Kristin Omdahl  ‘s Seamless Crochet book. It is on pre-order and can’r wait to see it.

  181. rs Says:

    I’ll probably be knitting socks for my wife…although that’s sort of selfish, anyway, because she’s such an appreciative recipient and brags about her knitted things to all her friends. But man would I love to make a dream in color scarf (that would be for me me me!)

  182. Allison Says:

    My selfish New Year knitting will start with some spinning… I have some Merino roving in a gorgeous color from Webs that I’m just dying to spin! I’m planning on a sweater.
    This is such gorgeous yarn! Thanks for the contest.

  183. Gretchen DiLuca Says:

    I have never knit with Dream In Color yarns and would love to try some!

  188. Laura Hess Says:

    I have decided next year is going to be the year of knitting for me! The only way you are getting a hand knit gift out of me is if you have a baby. I am starting by finishing the Lover’s Knot cabled blanket that I cast on six months ago, but have only had time to finish 24 rows so far. After that, I plan to learn to knit socks. :)

    I also cast on for a hat for her.

    So in January I’m knitting only for one person. ME!
    I have some cashmere in a lovely purple I would like to make into a shawl.
    For ME!

  190. Kay Says:

    I have a Mythos sweater that is just about half done and one or two other cardigans in my sights. And a few (or more than a few) gorgeous shawls to knit up…..and some mittens & socks….and maybe a scarf or two……………..then I’ve always wanted a Girasole for me…….and the list goes on! Maybe even tackle my queue on Ravelry!!

    Stranded Cthulhu mittens. Finally!

  202. nti57 Says:

    I’m planning on knitting a shawl for myself after the holiday knitting is done. Sadly, I usually don’t finish all my holiday knitting on time, and so many folks will be getting one sock with an IOU, so part of January will be spent finishing those socks. Maybe I’ll finish in time this year! Either way, I’m still knitting a shawl for ME in January!

    After the Christmas rush of knitting I plan to make a fingering weight sweater for ME! So looking forward to the selfish knitting.

  204. Boursin Says:

    In January I am going to take all my Christmas and birthday money (’cause I’m a December baby) and probably spend oodles of hours looking at yarn and patterns before spending it on something really nice to knit. I’m thinking of jumping back into socks maybe. Something warm and wintery.

  205. Sarah B Says:

    Im going to finish my Vivian sweater and cast me in some stripey socks.

    knitting a cashmere hat for myself in January, can’t wait, maybe I’ll find time to sneak it in before the New Year…here’s to wishful thinking!

  293. Katherine Grant Says:

    Planning lots of socks for me and a couple of sweaters from the new Coastal Knits book. 

  294. Jbrezen Says:

    My selfish knitting will be making a poncho with the Manos yarn I got at the WEBS booth at Stitches!

  295. elizh Says:

    Back to sweater making in Jan. No more scarves,mitts, or hats for a while. Also time to replenish the stash for small projects. Dream in Colorado for me!

  296. Kohrslindell Says:

    I am making myself a wonderful shawl with some yummy alpaca silk yarn. I have been so busy, my knitting time has been limited, but I am glad I have something lovely for me in the queue! :)

  297. Bcrowell529 Says:

    Love to make a scarf for my wonderful husband with this yarn.

  298. Marsy Says:

    I have some sweaters in my queue, but they are waiting for those interchangeable needles on my wish list… Hint, hint.

  299. Carol Cohn Says:

    Wow, this is one contest I’d really love to win–that’s absolutely my favorite color combo! Selfish January knitting? Where to begin, as I have so much in my stash to use up. A cowl using some mohair lace-weight? A cardigan using sport-weight I scored during Webs’ 2010 sales? Socks? What a difficult choice it will be.

  300. Anita Smith Says:

    i just bought 12 balls of merino and am planning a nice scarf with matching mittens!

    I hope to have finished a scarf with yarm from Homestead Wool and Gift Farm. Hopefully, my baby will take some longer naps this winter, so I can work on knitting her a hat. :-)

    In January, I plan to make socks for ME!!! Winning this Dream in Color would be the icing on the cake!

  304. Jess Hicks Says:

    I plan on making myself another Rose Red beret in some black or gray baby alpaca. I recently lost my old one, and I can’t go much longer without another!

  305. Maggieswesties Says:

    My selfish knitting for January – hmmmmmmm – what to choose from all the things I want to make.  I think that a hooded Aran cardigan tops my list followed by warm, colorful boot socks.  That should keep me busy and out of trouble for a day or two.  Have some yummy Madelintosh for my sweater project that I can’t wait the use.  haven’t decide what yarn for my socks.

  306. Strblysneetch Says:

    I haven’t fully decided what selfish knitting I am planning in January. I could do the sweater pattern that I just purchased, or the shawl pattern that I’ve had my eye on… or the one that I’ll be getting from the westknits shawl club, or a pair of socks for a KAL… or… or… or…

  307. Herekitty_2 Says:

    Ok, this is really selfish ….I gave my husband a box of yarn for his birthday in October with the promise that I would knit him a sweater (I haven’t started it). Instead of working on that, in January I will knit myself a pair of “route 66″ socks from “around the world in knitted socks” .

  308. Peachey Says:

    Definitely going to be knitting myself a hat/scarf/mittens set to go with my new winter jacket.  I also bought some sock  yarn back in September to knit myself a pair of socks I haven’t started yet.  January will be a busy “selfish” knitting month for me :)

  309. Richelle Chambers Krotts Says:

    I just got enough yarn to make the Dark and Stormy sweater…after I finish the one I’ve put aside to work on holiday gifts!!!

  311. zic Says:

    Selfish knitting? All knitting is selfish knitting, at least for me. I’ve fine motor problems from a neck injury. Knitting keeps my fingers limber, so it’s always selfish. 

    January, I’ll be working on the annual sweater-for-me; I’ve some lovely Valley Yarns Alpaca, purple with orange flecks (Purchased several years ago,) and for some reason, the purple and orange evoke verdigris. So I’m designing a sweater for myself; focusing in the notion of copper-clad cupolas, painted verdigris by time. 

    zic is my profile, both on disqus and ravelry. 

  312. Aferdina Says:

    A lovely warm shawl out of some terrrific handspun/handdyed I found at the local sheep, alpaca and wool show.  The pattern is a  four row easy repeat.  January cold, me warm and happy

  313. Rachel R. Says:

    In January, I’m planning on knitting a beret in fingering weight yarn – haven’t figured out the pattern yet, but there are several vying for attention in my queue!

  315. Krystl Says:

    Since I will have my dad’s sweater vest, mom’s gloves, and friend’s baby blanket done by January, I fully plan on knitting myself a Funchal Moebius. It’s unbelievably glorious and I will wear it ALL. THE. TIME.

  316. Emmieween Says:

    I’ve got a cozy pair of mittens, a shawlette, and two sweaters on the needles! Winter knitting is the best knitting.

  317. Barbskates Says:

    I have two yummy skeins of Kangaroo Dyer Northfield Hand Dyed and I think it’ll make a lovely Corinne (cardigan) – that is, as soon as I finish all of my holiday knits!

  318. Si Chen Says:

    I almost always knit selfishly…. I always feel that people wont appreciate the final product as much in comparison to the amount of work I have to put in. My January plans are primarily scarfs and wraps. I have a few Jared Flood designs I been meaning to get to…

    Selfish knitting……. lacy shawl and a some socks for ME.  But, I just might be able to work in a scarf for my husband too!!

  320. Joe Bocanegra Says:

    Most of the knitting I do is selfish because no one wears the things I wear, saying they’re too special a gift to wear it.  It does make sense but still, I wouldn’t mind them wearing them…

    I’m in the middle of knitting a dress for Mom, which I’d hoped to have ready for Thanksgiving, but she got ill and I had to rush up early, so no dress. Oh well, I’ll easily get it done from Christmas, says I. But now I find she’s scheduled a doctor appointment for mid December, and I’ll be going up on the 12th and staying thru Christmas. 10 more knitting days lost. I’m beginning to wonder if I can get the dress done by Valentines? Meanwhile, for myself I’m getting anxious to start the sleeves on my own Christmas sweater. Maybe by 4th of July?

  385. Jill Says:

    My sister is getting married in May and I have a lovely, purple dress that needs a shawl.  I found a beautiful lace pattern and, last time I was at WEBS, found a beautiful gray lace weight yarn.  In January I am only going to knit this.  There are no more babies being born among my friends and no birthdays for another month.  The holidays will be over and I live in Massachusetts so I am sure I will have plenty of snow days stuck at home.

    Once ALL Christmas knitting is done, I’m heading straight for some handspun I’ve had “marinating” for a couple of years.  It’s itching to be knit into a simple cardigan for moi.  I think the Mr. Greenjeans pattern from Knitty calls for just the right amount of yardage!

    I’m planning to finish socks I started last January!

  597. Cynshep Says:

    I have the yarn in my stash for Norah Gaughan’s Kaari.  I am really looking forward to knitting it after the holidays.  cynshep on Ravelry

  598. Lisa Ward Says:

    My selfish (and yearlong, probably) knitting will be a Knit, Swirt jacket in Malabrigo Rios.

  599. susiescout Says:

    I am knitting a beautiful simple lacy cowl from some silver grey cashmere ALL FOR ME!

  600. Dyetom Says:

    I’m planning to make the Current cardi!

  601. Pharmaknit Says:

    I’m planning on knitting a pair of dragon socks and hopefully finishing a vest!

  602. Gail Bailey Says:

    I won some Malabrigo Rios in a local yarn crawl that I will make a cowl out of once the Christmas knitting is finished! 

  603. stardust79 Says:

    I’m thinking a drapey cowl would be perfect.

  604. Nancy D. Says:

    I’m going to relax and sit in front of the fire, knit myself an Afghan in Sea Blue yarn, in a Shell pattern! I’ll stay warm and dream of the wonderful “beach days” ahead!

  605. Rmholmes Says:

    I am planning to make a Lintilla scarf in January.

  606. knitkai Says:

    I have a couple of hanks of Malabrigo Rasta…I liked the cowl so much I wanted it in different colors :) –  (ravid: knitkai)

  607. Julie Says:

    I need some mitts. I’ve got a few gifts yet to knit, but I really want some pretty mitts in a gorgeous yarn. And if course I need them now. Julie. Whitecatstudio on Ravelry.

  608. Pstorum Says:

    i’m going to pick something from COastal Knits!  “Santa” got me a copy!

  609. kate price Says:

    I am planning on making the ogee skirt before Christmas, to wear as a swimsuit cover up at Christmas time (in the southern hemisphere) – Rav id is katepricey

  610. Meredith Says:

    That yarn and pattern are beautiful!  For January, my selfish knitting is a cabled turtleneck called Bliss and the Jared Flood Hemlock Ring blanket–both out of Cascade wool from WEBS!

  611. Carol Perecman Says:

    I need some new cardigans, and as soon as I am finished with all the grandchild knitting, I am casting on for the Wildflower Cardigan!

  612. Heather flower Says:

    Lovely, lovely yarn!! I am going to knit some warm and cozy wool socks for myself!

    I’m planning on starting an Elizabeth Zimmerman 100th birthday lace shawl! I’ve never done lace before… (^_^)!

  618. Lisa from western mass Says:

    Oooh … lovely yarn! My January selfish knitting will be a cashmere-blend cowl, I think. So many patterns, so little time….

  619. Redskyis Says:

    Through a combination of upcoming projects and extensive Christmas shopping (no time AND no money…), I don’t have any selfish knitting planned for January; I’ll be knitting a throw for two good friends of mine (hopefully in time for Christmas), and a long vest for my mother sometime between now and February, but nothing planned for myself. I’ve been considering a cowl, mostly because it’s something I would use (the walk between the train and work is long and cold) and because it’s something I’ve never made, so it would be a new experience.

    (Also, I would like to be entered in the Dream in Color giveaway, please!)

  620. Jan Says:

    I plan on knitting a cardigan from the knit Noro book. Every year I try to knit something for each member of my family to wear in our Christmas picture. Hopefully 2012 can be the year when we all get new sweaters!

  621. Ellen Rule Says:

    I plan to make some really complicated sock patterns, ones that I’ve been putting off because it’s too crazy lately to concentrate on much beyond plain knitting. For me.

  622. Jane Says:

    I have been blessed with a granddaughter last May and twin grandsons ten days ago. I have been knitting many items for these precious babies. I am knitting away on Christmas gifts. I just told some friends this morning that I can’t wait until January when I can select a knitting project for myself with no deadline to get it done. I have not yet picked the project. I am dreaming about it … that scarf pattern looks like a possibility!

  623. Robin Says:

    My selfish knitting will be a sweater for myself, with cable shaping, out of my handspun yarn. I have just rediscovered knitting (after 20 years) this past October and have been knitting socks like crazy for Christmas gifts.. something I never knitted before. I *love* it. My Ravelry name is RobinMurphy

  624. Winterwrens Says:

    My project for myself that I’ve been thinking of is actually a new scarf… just hadn’t decided on a pattern yet!  This one looks lovely!

    a lace shawl

  626. Janet Chutro Says:

    Rowan #48 – Meander vest. The way it’s put together looks so clever to me.

  627. Marjact Says:

    Decided my husband has more sweaters than me, so I found two pretty patterns I’m going to try.

  628. penny Says:

    I plan to take some time for myself and knit the sweater I’ve been dreaming of and designing in my head. nothing earth shattering, just a simple top-down set in sleeve, but i’m looking forward to creating a knit i’ll turn to for comfort and warmth. and it will stay with me and not be gifted off to someone else. 

  629. GypsyScarfWoman Says:

    I have a sweater that’s barely started but will have to sit until gift knitting is done, and a pair of socks that I’ve been daydreaming about.  Of course, then I panic about how close the holidays are!

  630. laceandcable Says:

    I think that I’ll knit myself some lace.  I don’t wear what I have, but I do love to knit it… And maybe someday I’ll figure out how to wear a lace shawl and not look dumb…

  631. Deb Says:

    I am going to (finally!) knit myself a sweater! I keep putting it off for smaller projects, but I have the yarn picked out as well as the pattern (weeellll….almost picked out – it’s at least narrowed down to a few!). My ravelry name is SweetgrassBay.

  632. Ljmalleypm Says:

    I think that I am going to do a lace shawl pattern with beads. Something that needs concentration. Once the party season is over, it’s time to exercise the two brain cells I have left!

  633. Tammi Says:

    Looks like a great blend for fingerless gloves, or a snuggly cowl, yum!!!


  634. Rachelle Crosbie Says:

    I’ll be participating in a shawl KAL in January and the end result will be for me; the yarn was dyed by a friend especially for me.

  637. Haygayle Says:

    It’s hard to choose, cowls in cashmere, alpaca shawls, where do I begin?

  638. Colleen Fitzgerald Says:

    I also have a sock yarn drawer calling me!!! I love to wear my socks to work at the hospital and show them off :)

  639. Judith Blanchard Says:

    just learning to knit at 74,,making teddy bears and hats

  640. prymnumber Says:

    I intersperse “selfish” knitting in along with gift knitting. I’ll make something for my friend/husband/mom/anyone else, then I’ll make something for me.  This “one-for-me-one-for-you” approach helps me stay motivated.  Otherwise I’ll feel sorry for myself all the time and not enjoy knitting one bit!

  641. shellbelle Says:

    I need some new winter woolies, tons of socks I want to knit, and my first lace shawl, hmmm…. what else?

  642. Meghann Says:

    I would like to do the mohair cowlneck pattern from the Vogue Knitting A-Z latest issue! It looks simple but fun. Ravelry ID: Megfoot

  643. Kmsears Says:

    2 shawls- Citron and Thin Ice

  644. Diane Says:

    My selfish knitting in January is the Vodka Gimlet sweater over on Ravelry….but I could move it to February to work with DIC…my favorite yarn!

  645. ReluctantPenguin Says:

    Something in cashmere. Or yak. Warm, soft, and scrumptious.

  646. MamaBearKnits on Rav Says:

    Where do I begin?  Blumchen by Anne Hanson I hope!

  647. Audribklyn Says:

    If I can finish this ridiculous shrug thing for my daughter called the Minx Convertible Hooded Shrug I will be ready to work on a simple sweater for me.  Or maybe yet another lace shawl (I’m obsessed).

    Definitely some bright colorful socks!

  653. Cyntha Landers Says:

    I love DIC.  I’m planning a new scarf for myself in DIC Starry or maybe this one if I win!!!

  654. Cindy Says:

    I love this yarn! I am looking forward to making myself a pair of mitts to wear at work – but I have been planning on doing this for two years now!

  655. Kelly H. Says:

    Sadly (though happily) my SiL is having a baby late March and I’ve a last minute request for a cardigan (non-knitters who do *not* understand time requirements) cardigan for my FiL for Christmas (dying of cancer, can’t turn that down, reality or not) means I’ve got nothing planned for myself.  I’ve had my eye (and drooling mouth) on a Leif Slipover, Deep In The Forest Mittens or Old Penny Cardigan in Apple Green Williamstown (no, you can’t have too many cardigans!!), and I’ve UFO’s that would be nice to finish (HA!), but who knows what’ll come up next!  I’m trying to pretend Christmas isn’t happening in 3 weeks.

  656. Blknitter Says:

    After giving my sewing/knitting room a thorough cleaning I am going to delve into some lace knitting that I have been wanting to do. This yarn would be perfect for that I think.

  657. Kate/Massachusetts Says:

    Socks!!  It’s COLD here in Massachusetts.  :-)

  658. stephccng Says:

    a pair of Cookie A socks! And some mitts. it’s freezing in the office!

    I have some 20 year old, nicely aged, gorgeous local wool that I am planning to make myself a cozy cardigan with while curled up by the fire watching old movies… best Christmas recovery plan I know…

  660. Laurel Says:

    I think this beautiful, lovely yarn should become some mittens and a hat for me :) I’m smidgentigre on ravelry.

  661. tami h. Says:

    Oh i adore all dream in color yarns! My after christmas knitting list will begin by making myself my very first project with lace. Not sure what exact pattern I will use, but I want it to be a shawl pattern using a lace weight or even better a sock yarn just like tis one!!! Ravelry: sweetside

  662. Kgreaney1 Says:

    I plan to make myself a sweater.  it will be the first I’ve made for myself in many years. And it will be a nice change to keep something for myself.

  668. Kbates Says:

    I always have a pair of brainless socks for me on the go, but I’ve decided I’d like a nice winter hat and I’ve kinda taken to Tourbillon by Kris Carlson in the latest issue of Twist Collective.  I think that will be my Jan knit (after the xmas presents, the baby blanket for the Jan. baby, the mittens, hats and socks for my rapidly growing 4 mth old nephew etc etc)….

  669. Leigh Harding Says:

    I am planning on making myself a scarf as I have spent the past 3 months making scarves for others.  Just looking at it makes me start to wonder if there would be anything else I want…

  699. Nancy Lea Says:

    I plan to make up another sweater with my Lopi discontinued-colours stash and do a Fair Isle vest out of the leftovers.  It’s going to be unusually-cold around here for a good spell, if this winter is anything like the last two.  The worst is always January and February. We have already had snow-flurries, and, for Alabama, that’s downright weird.  SOOOO, sweaters are looking pretty good!  I just finished dashing out a cute, warm hat…took me just a couple of hours with the Lopi Bulky!

  700. Nancy Lea Says:

    of course, sox are always in work.  That’s the knitting I can carry around with me.

  704. Jaclyn Allen Says:

    I was lucky and got through most of my Christmas knitting before November hit, but now I am working on a hat for my Grandpa in Rowan Pure Wool DK.  After Christmas, I plan on starting either a Summer Flies shawl in Malabrigo Sock, Archangel colorway, or an Arisaig in Rowan 4ply.  Or maybe a Shalom cardigan in Rowan Cocoon, Kiwi colorway . . .

  705. dswgr6 Says:

    Socks.  And a lace scarf. And another sweater.  At least that’s what I’m dreaming about.  Reality??? Well we won’t go there yet.

  706. Mujercita Says:

    I have more selfish knitting than I probably will actually have time for planned!  There are a couple of sweaters that I want to make, as well as a scarf and hat set.

    The biggest selfish project I have, though, doesn’t actually involve me knitting, although it is related.  I am going to be setting up a craft room for myself!

    I would like some more socks and fingerless gloves for myself as well as another winter hat

    I’d like to make a nice lacy scarf for myself!

    I am thinking it’s time to learn socks because I have lots of cushy warm sock yarn in pretty pretty colors and I’m running low on comfortable socks.

    Or there’s all the sock-weight patterns for lace shawls and I could make a couple yummy soft small shawls for keeping my head & neck warm in the wind that Seattle gets in the late winter.

  721. Judy Gilbert Says:

    I have a coupe skeins of Smooshy yarn that I’m going to knit socks for myself.  My husband’s sock drawer is full….now it’s time to work on mine!  :-) Ravelry name is: Jude84.

  722. Geemom57 Says:

    Love DIC! That scarf pattern is really nice but my selfish knitting for January is the Fiddlehead Mittens! I intended to knit them last year but it didn’t happen so in the new year- me = selfish!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win such a beautiful skein of yarn and pattern!
