I love the tweed colors of Cascade 220

I am using Cascade 220 purple heather right now to create a scarf and hat set! I love this yarn :)

Gail said...

I have a cascade 220 pattern book and have just finished a hat. Not with Cascade wool, I would love to try it. But I live in the north of England and have yet to find a supplier. The colors look amazing!

Lisa said...

I have used Cascade 200 many times. I'm partial to the Heathers myself. I also like the superwash a lot. It seems softer to me than the regular 220.

Janelle said...

Oh, I have been meaning to make the French Press slippers and just haven't gotten to it... yet! Maybe this is a sign that it's time. Lovely giveaway.

Sandra@threepumpkinslittle.squarespace.com said...

I love Cascade 220--the heathers are my absolute faves. And like so many, I have the FP slippers in my queue & have wanted to make them for a while. Thanks for the chance to win! Rav ID is 3pumpkinslittle

Lara said...

I haven't used Cascade 220 yet, though I've used several of their other yarns. Yum! And lovely patterns.

SoccerMomKnits said...

I have not used Cascade 220 before but I love the colors they have and would look forward to using this yarn.

Pamela said...

Lovely yarn and patterns! I just wanted to tell you how much I look forward to your podcast ... Get a hot latte and curl up in my big green chair and knit... My only problem is there is never enough...
Thanks for all the work and effort.

Hope you're feeling more yourself. Curious about the cascade 220, I have some in my stash but haven't used it yet.

Tuia said...

I have never used that yarn but it seems that many of your readers have and all think it is a great yarn. I would really like to try it!

carolshue said...

I love Cascade 220 - I have a lovely green heather waiting to be used - but would love more:)

tothfamily25 said...

Love these I made four pair of slipper for Christmas presents and want to make this sweater for my grandson

MoxieDot said...

Cascade 220 is the best yarn for felting projects. I just love the stuff!

Karen9877 said...

I have bookmarked Sandra's site after hearing you rave about Cascade 220. I'll hold back on buying, in case I am lucky enough to win, but I see a pair of felted slippers in my future.

Catherine said...

I've used the washable Cascade 220 for a hat with good success and would like to try the regular 220 as well. I've been intrigued by the French press slippers for a while. They look tres chic.

Maegwin said...

I love the French Press Slippers and they have been on my overly extensive queue for a bit. Cascade 220 is a great workhorse yarn and I adore it. I've made a lot of felted clogs, hats, mittens, and toys with it. I particularly love their tweeds and heathers.

Ann said...

I love Cascade 220! I have used it several times for knitted bags and sweaters. The colors are lovely!

Joann said...

I saw this pretty pattern on Ravelry. What a treat!!

sbfh said...

I have never used it due to financial issues but I would love to give it a try. Everything I have knit in the last 12 months has been from my stash and has gone to charity. I am ready for a new challenge

hopalongfroggy said...

I love the little wooden buttons on the campfire sweater. Super cute!!I have been using buttons on everything lately.

Mena said...

Love the podcast! Everytime I listen my fingers just itch to knit (if I'm not already)

Jenny K said...

Love the French Press Pattern!

Ginger said...

I have to sneak wool into my house, so I tend to rip the labels off before I get home...that being the case, I know I have purchased Cascade 220, but what project I snuck it into eludes me. That's one of the few benefits of Mental-pause, and keeping secrets I must take to the grave... :)

Ali said...

I guess I'm under a different rock as I've never used Cascade 220 before. I'll have to try it out!

Karen said...

I've definitely been under a rock, as you put it, and until now haven't seen the French Press slippers nor have I used Cascade 220. I'm out now and never going back!! Love your podcast and listen all the time. If you choose my comment in the drawing, please leave a comment on my website "Quarteracreweedfarm.blogspot.com

Dorce said...

Love blue, anyblue all blues. So I knit with colors that go with blue and blue jeans. Cascade is great, makes great blues and felts wonderfuly.

tsengl said...

I think I'm one of the few people who haven't yet used 220. Would love to win and try it out!

Tryste said...

Just wanted to say thank you for another great episode, and especially for making the extra effort for all of us when you're still feeling under the weather. It cracked me up to know I'm not the only one who is sometimes kinda happy to be sick since it usually means I can devote my time to knitting ;-) Feel better soon, though, and Happy New Year!

Brenda P. said...

I use Cascade 220 a lot--it is one of my favorite yarns. I recently made the February Lady Sweater with it in a pretty green colorway. In the past I have made 3 pair of felted slippers. It felts beautifully. The French Press Slippers are on my list next.

Elly said...

Fantastic giveaway! Love the yarn color and both patterns!!

I've used Cascade 220 in a heather green to make the French Press Slippers for my Mom! I'd love to make another pair for myself.

Rebekah said...

I have never used it, but the French Press Slippers got me intrigued and I put it on my "to buy, to make" list - in peacock. :)

Elisa said...

Those slipper are cute!! I'd love to try my hand at making felted slippers.

Bruny said...

Melissa said...

I just discovered your podcast and I'm looking forward to listening to your back episodes.

I LOVE Cascade 220; I use it quite a bit. It's got a ton of colors, felts well, and it fits my budget pretty well.

I have not used Cascade 220 yet but actually just ordered a skein each of black and red. These are my kids' school colors and I'm going to make a hat for one of them.

Debra said...

I like Cascade 220. I have one ball, and I do not know what to do with it. It is so pretty. Come inspiration, come! It is the kind of yarn that you wait for "the" right project. You just don't waste it!

vicki said...

Just finished a beautiful baby blanket with Cascade 220, in the colors of sunshine and water. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
