I love the Hardy Dam color way (am super excited to spin up the sample I received in the December box!) and I also really like the Heffalump Farm Fresh Batt. There's just something about the darker colors with a pop of bright that draws my attention every time!

I would have to say that my favorite is the Sweater Babe yarn - amazing length (I hate working the ends in!). For the color, I am torn between Siren and Hardy Pond. Siren might win out for variety, but I love the deep blue tones of Hardy Pond. Thanks for the great giveaway!
