Namaste Fingerless Mitts Kit Giveaway from Kamasuutra !


Squee!! I'm so excited about this giveaway! I purchased a kit myself and have just started knitting it- so lovely! I think the yarn I have is even brighter and more vibrant in person if that is possible!

I have to admit, I have done hardly any colorwork at all, but this seems doable for some reason, perhaps the excitement I feel over the variegated yarn. Speaking of doable- let me tell you about KamaSuutra's newest line of self striping sock yarns- it's called Maya Magic stripe and it's amazing! If you do socks or mitts with a circumference of 55-66 stitches it stripes every 2 rows. It really is magical! I happen to really love the Evil Genius colorway... just sayin' ;) You can contact Rue and pre-order your Maya Magic yarn and be the first to get some!

We're giving away this gorgeous yarn+pattern kit! Just visit Kamasuutra fiber arts and find something that you love, write about it in the comments section below, and we'll be drawing in a couple of weeks- we're kicking of a big giveaway bash with giveaways every day!

I love it all - but the mitts might be the best!

LizzieK8 said...

Flowers in SuperSport. OMG how gorgeous!

Amanda said...

If I wasn't a poor college student, I would snatch up that Tequila Sunrise Cashmere DK in two seconds. That is the most amazing yarn I've ever seen. PLUS! It matches the colors of one of my favorite guppies that I own, also coincidentally named Tequila Sunrise. If that yarn is still there in two months when I graduate and (hopefully) get a job, it is so gone.

Ponddrop said...

Cashmere? *click* Oh my. Cannot resist Lapis in Amalya-Sport Weight. It is amazing. I had to stop looking before I went broke.

Roo said...

Wow... simply WOW! Browsing through her shop I am amazed at her concept, I love it - all of these self striping yarns would be awesome for a baginner like me :) However, the mitts are definatly my favourite. What a beautiful project!

Jennifer Davis said...

I love the Namaste Fingerless Mitts Kit. It's always nice when a colorwork project has something unexpected in the mix like self stripping yarn that both a warm background and a cool shaded pattern that looks way more complicated then it is. I also love the Jeweled Beatle colorway for its dark black tones that radiate moodiness and monday mornings combined with the jeweled blue-greens that echo of relaxing summer nights spent stargazing. Of course the Lupis colorway in whatever form would have to be an instant favorite of anyone who loved deep moody blues. Sigh...so many yarns, so little time!

Magan said...

I love Evil Genius! Such bright colors!

Kristin said...

What a gorgeous pair of mitts! But my fave is the songbird in seacell sock. That's just calling my name.

Lisa said...

After much deliberation, I'm partial to the 'Magic Carpet' colorway. Though I'm interested in the seacell-type fibers just for the feel of the yarn.

I love almost all of their colors, but my favorite has to be either that very fingerless mitten kit or the Daylily color of the SuperSport yarn.

craftchick said...

this description of the Evil Genius colourway is completely brillant:

Evil Genius is the Steampunk equivalent of James Bond's Q.

In Polite Society, the Lady sports velvets and silks in rich plum, wine and burnished amber. In her lab, Evil Genius can generally be found with coal dust on her face, engine grease under her nails, and pockets full of brass fittings. Watson is secretly in love with her.

Connie said...

I love the Flowers colorways in the Iris with purples blues. The fingerless gloves are gorgeous and would be a wonderful gift for one of my dear friends.

One Sheep said...

I've got to agree, my inner Evil Genius loves having a yarn named after him.

purlverde said...

Oh wow, the mitts are gorgeous!! I'd have to say that in the shop, I began drooling when I found the Jeweled Beetle in Seacell, what a glorious hank of yarn!

The Namaste Mitt Kit is fabulous and how I love knitting fingerless mitts. I have knit them for others and now it is time to knit them for MOI!!

AND those PINK yarns in the shop are to die for especially when you love the color PINK as much as I do.

Barbara said...

I just love the mitt kit, and the Seaglass colorway in the Seacell sock is gorgeous!

Tam said...

I have long wanted to work with a colorway like this one, and the choice of pattern is absolutely perfect for it!!! I have a nice stable of fingerless mitts that I donate to a yearly auction to raise money for a food shelf, and these would bring in a lot ...
