Kama Suutra Sock Yarn giveaway!


Yes, this yarn is really as amazing as it looks!! Kama Suutra created a gorgeous "Watermelon Tourmaline" colorway in their magnificent Maya self-striping sock yarn (avaze base pictured). This stuff will blow you away. When you knit in the round at about 55-66 sts you'll get amazing 2 rows of stripes! Magic!
Kama Suutra's colorways and bases will send a shiver of joy down your spine. You don't have to take my word for it.. try some!
We're giving away this gorgeous sock yarn- but we're going to do things a little differently. We would like to know what you would create with it! Rue, the Kama Suutra dye goddess, has included a note in this package saying "Trust the way you express yourself." Tell us what you would create with this sock yarn or any other Kama Suutra yarn. Winners will be announced later this week- tell your friends on FB and twitter about this contest too!

Falling 4 U! Love that jazzed up brown!

Andrea said...

It would definitely be socks for ME! I actually enjoy making socks but have only made one pair for myself. I think this yarn is special enough to be selfish with!

Kristen said...

I like the Leaf Green SuperSock Optical Tweed.

Uma said...

I love the colors in Avaze Worsted in Evil Genius. It would definitely be a sock -- a yummy pair for me. I woul dput in some slip stitches to make raised columns.

AmyDe said...

Awesome! I'd make socks for me and one for my daughter (10) she only wears mismatchies

s said...

I am totaly in love with the self-striping, and would try gloves to see the different effects with different sizes of circular knitting.

Aesox said...

Ooohh, I wonder how entrelac would look?! Or maybe trying a self pooling scarf!>!

craftypuppylover said...

This is beautiful! Might be just what I need to knit my first ever pair of socks. For me of course!

lauraelih said...

Vanilla knee socks for me!! I want to use every inch of that yarn

Nola said...

holy cow - i want to learn how to knit *just* so I can get the Namaste Fingerless Kit - GORGEOUS!!!!

ania65 on Ravelry said...

Having just started a pair of socks today out of a watermelon colorway...I would go with Seaglass in Shiva...and I would adapt the Shipwreck Shawl with Beads...from Knitty. Been wanting to make that shawl for a while ...and that Seaglass would be spectacular.

cthulhulovesme said...

I think Royel Azel in Dharma would make a lovely fingering weight scarflette.

Diana, Fiber Fancy said...

I've been really into fingerless gloves and cowls lately and a bright one would be change :)

Mel said...

amazingly pretty and bright! we are heading into winter here and my daughter would get some fingerless mitts if I won this

Carla said...

I think socks or a small shawl-

ShoelessJane said...

Very pretty!

If I had it *right now* I'd knit my first ever pair of socks; toe-up so I can maximize length for the amount of yarn (instead of trying to guess how long they'd be.)

If I got it *after* I started my first ever socks, I'd knit Jaywalkers, because I think they'd be great with the narrow stripes.

Reivenna said...

<3 the magic carpet and tequila sunrise skeins

Carmen said...

I would make the 185 yards of Heaven Shawlette.

Heather J said...

I did a beanie style hat for my son in a striping sock yarn. That yarn is calling out for me to knit it into another hat!

sensistar said...

OMG! KNEE SOCKS! I love pink and green together!

sensistar said...

Tweeted!

sensistar said...

Shared this love on facebook!

tiamatgreen said...

I think this would make a lovely pair of fingerless mitts. Or maybe my first-ever pair of socks?

TinkerTots said...

I'd really love to see how the colors interact when woven. I think it would make a stunning scarf in plain weave!

Jan said...

I would love to try a pair of socks, and the colors in this yarn would be perfect for my youngest daughter

Tia said...

Oh oh! Twining of a Tree in Devi. Wow.

Celestya22 said...

Oh I'd love to try it out to make some cute toys. Likely a bear or, with spring coming up and those bright colours, a bunny!

Susan F. said...

I don't know the exact yardage but I'd probably make a scarf.

BTW, I *love* the Tiger's Eye Scarf Kits. If I didn't have so many items on needles and hooks right now, there would be an immediate order!

Karen(ravelry's Faeryl) said...

The colors of the watermelon tourmaline sock yarn's so pretty! I'd love to make it into a Baby Surprise Jacket.

sherry said...

I am currently in love with WRAPOLOGY
by Kristin Omdahl.

I think any of Kama Suutra's colorways would look fabulous in the Infinity pattern.

Lisa said...

I could use some more sock yarn! This was a long winter,if next year's has this much snow I am going to need more socks!

alittleweirdo said...

Love the Twining of a Tree in Devi Silk/Bamboo/Wool!

Perrin said...

love the Falling 4 U!

Michelle said...

Twining of a Tree in Devi: Silk/Bamboo/Wool

I like the small spurts of color mixed in with the brown. Fun!

affiknity.com said...

I am not much of a sock person and we don't need warm socks in India, so I would probably make an infant sweater and if that messes up the stripes, then I will make a baby hat or two. The colors are just perfect for baby wears.

Teresa said...

I definitely want to knit a pair of socks with self striping yarn, but I also want to knit a pair of those namaste fingerless mitts.

I would make a beautiful breast cancer scarf survivor for my daughter, Who was diagnosed last January. She loves pink and green combinations. If there was enough, or maybe a purchase of some more "Kama Suutra sock yarn to make a matching slouch hat and fingerless mitts to go with the scarf.... Judy

If I had a lot more money than I do have, I'd go for the Kasbah Sparkly Cashmere in Emerald & Peridot. Wow!
Staying within my 'real' budget, I'd choose the Namaste Fingerless Kit.

♥ Meg ♥ said...

What an amazing yarn to invoke all those wonderful SPRING feelings. Dusting off the chill, I would make a shawlette/neckerchief with this colorway. I would want it to be lacy and show off all the amazing colors, and I want to be able to wear it through summertime, nothing says hello sunshine like some bright and beautiful yarn. :D

Hillside said...

I would make a shawlette for my yoga teacher, who is one of the most awesome women I know. She gives so much of her time and herself and has helped me so much. She loves bright colours - this would be perfect for her

Susan said...

Love the colorway Evil, the Dark Side-would make long fingerless gloves with it.

Susan said...

I love Pink Berries and SeaGlass... such vibrant color!

AnneMarie said...

I love the bright colors and wonder what would happen if you made socks with this yarn striped with black. Black heels & toes, of course!

Galia Lael said...

Do I have to choose just one?? OK then, the Evil Genius Giant Skein would be my favorite!

Galia Lael said...

I meant to say that I would probably create socks (lame, I know), and I would love to create them with the skein mentioned above.

Twitted and FB'd too.

Melrose said...

I like the leaf green and berrylicious colorways!

jessecreations said...

I would make fingerless gloves for myself, because I love the striping idea but I don't knit socks. :)

Southern Mystic said...

I would give this skein to my dear friend Karen, who is always making things for Other People and not for herself. This skein is so her colors, and she's been wanting to learn to knit socks!

StevieBee said...

I would make sock for me and my goddaughter. We both like ankle socks and she loves when I make her socks that "match" mine(socks made for her out of the same yarn as I made mine). Then with whatever yarn is left over I will make a bunch of my tiny animals.

Jaguarrior said...

Gorgeous!

I love love love the Falling 4 U in Shiva Sport/DK! I bet it is amazing when it's knitted up!

Phoebe said...

I would make a Boneyard Shawl! Or some other Stephen West pattern.

Leslie said...

I believe I would be making my baby (15yr old) sister a pair of December Snowfall mitts from this. She would go crazy over it. I would once again still be an epic awesome older sister.

suburban prep said...

I have been knitting prayer shawls and shawls for other reasons as well and this would add some cheeriness to the shawl.

Natalie Servant said...

That yarn needs to be some happy socks. And now I've gone & seen the lovely Peridot lace on their website. Beautiful!

Sarah said...

I'd love to make a pair of mittens out of this colorway. Winters are so dark and gloomy, and a bit of color always cheers me up!

Sarah said...

I'd make a pair of mittens out of this colourway.
Winters are so dark and gloomy, I need colour to cheer me up! And this is the most cheerful skein I've seen in a while.

Annette said...

Oh, knee socks or leg warmers - love it!

Knittingdancer on Ravelry said...

I would make a pair of socks for me.

andrea said...

I would knit up the 198 Yds Shawlette. It would make a teriffic summer accessory! Watermelon...yum!

Laura said...

Definitely make socks with it! I have never used self striping yarn so I would have to do a fairly basic sock pattern, maybe a slipped stitch rib, to highlight the striping. And then I would seek out some more to make a shawl, as I am new to shawls and finding the love for them too!

Kristin said...

Tiger's eye scarf kit is really cool!

Inspiration Fibers said...

I would make a cowl so I could wear it everyday and show it off!
Probably something with a little stitch to it, but no so busy that it takes away from the stripes. Maybe just a simple moss stitch or basket weave. OH! Or maybe even a slip stitch here and there!

karmaperdiem said...

Oh, I so love it! I would be thrilled to make a pair of socks with this colorway!

Stacy said...

I would use a simple ribbed sock pattern that let the yarn speak for itself. Those are gorgeous colors.

Ms.Curdy said...

Definitely SOCKS for me! I haven't knit any socks yet.

Rachael said...

Oooohhh look at the pretty Namaste Fingerless Kit!

Mirfain said...

I would probably make some nice socks for someone's Christmas or birthday present!

Dovile said...

I'm best at making socks and scarves so I'd make one of these, but more likely a scarf, as the yarn seems too good to be used for socks. I'd like everyone see it, not just me:)

rose said...

Well, magic stripes would be wasted on doll hair, I'd have to get my knitting friend to make me some socks!

The Magic Carpet is incredible

InJuneau said...

I would first need to learn to knit socks, but I think I'd use it to knit socks for someone else in my life (not sure yet who), as the color isn't really me, although it's a great colorway.

Elaine said...

This would feed my new sock obsession perfection. Love it!

Kat said...

I would make my first pair of socks out of that beautiful yarn

jmrkar said...

Oh, I love the Namaste Fingerless Kit. Maybe if I knit these, it would make me want to go back to yoga class! I do love yoga, but it's hard to get to class near me.

Zombie Queen said...

The colors are so gorgeous! I love the Berrylicious yarn

Kristin said...

I'm a sucker for watermelon coloring, and these would definitely become a pair of socks for me. Of course, I have small feet, so I'd probably squeek a pair of fingerless mitts out of them too. I'd want to use up every last yard of that yarn on something fabulous.

Marlitharn said...

Socks for me! I recently started a new job where I have to wear a uniform, but I can wear my own socks as long as they're not visible. So I'm working on stocking my sock drawer with the brightest, wildest socks possible. At least I'll have that one little touch of individuality, even if no one else can see it!

Turtle said...

OMGosh! That is gorgeous, perfectly named as well! I would love to make a shawlette for summer wear with this. Or a fun pair of socks as close to knee high as yardage would allow for, fun for summer!

Kimmy said...

Oooh this is pretty! Makes me think of watermelons. I would make a slouchy beret hat. I liked the purple yarn in her shop too. Lovely

I like the Leaf Green SuperSock Optical Tweed

adodds said...

I am not sure what I would be tempted to knit with such loveliness. First thought is a cute baby hat. Love the colors.

theonlyevidence said...

GLOVES! That colorway deserves to be shown off, not hidden under shoes.

I really liked the colorways Sea Glass and Roseus. Sock weight wouldf be for me. All were such beautiful colors!

Love the tequila sunrise!

ZombieCat said...

I would make matching fingerless gloves for me and my best friend! This colorway is a combo of our favorite colors!! Beautiful!

Melissa Zeffer said...

I have always admired the Namaste Fingerless Kit but I LOVE the tequila sunrise cashmere!

Melissa Zeffer said...

Ohhh Whoops. Responded incorrectly. I would make socks! I am just learning. The more practice the better!

Debbie said...

I can't decide! It would probably be some pretty fingerless mitts. Thanks - the yarn is gorgeous! Debbie in Alaska

ikkinlala said...

I'd knit some socks that take advantage of the striping - I might try Jaywalkers.

Tara said...

I have never used self striping yarn before, but if I had some I think I would have to make a pair of Jaywalker socks, I love what that pattern does with stripes

eyebehold said...

I would totally use this as contrast in a faux intarsia project, probably hat or finterless mits.

Paulette said...

I would make a shawlette or socks. This yarn is yummy!

Anonymous said...

Ohhh! My son has been asking for "rainbow socks", so I think I'd make him some using the Zombie Socks pattern. He'd love them!

Agnes said...

Definitely a pair of lace socks! Wow, they would be stunning! :-)

The Byrd's Nest said...

I would design a toy with it, the colors are wonderful.

dmr said...

Socks for myself in Berrylicious. I have made hundreds of pairs of socks and finally, one pair for me. I so deserve another pair.

Mandii said...

Forget socks, I think I'd make a nice shawl or wrap and show off all that color!

Jennifer said...

I would love to make a baby hat with this yarn! I have been looking for sock yarn so I could use a pattern I found on Ravelry!

EVA SB said...

Fantastic colourways- I love Evil Genius in Shiva/

Cathy said...

I guess I should have read the instructions better. I would create a crazy hat for my DIL who loves those colors.

Leah said...

Ooh, this is gorgeous! I would knit preemie hats for the local hospital to liven up the NICU a little.

Babacrow said...

This would definitely be the incentive to learn to knit toe-up socks...gorgeous colours in the shop...beautiful additions to the stash! A magic carpet ride while knitting!

H said...

I would make a wonderful summer scarf to wear that would make me happy and cheery all the time. Have to love the colours!!
