I am planning on using some Cascade 220 to make mittens for my daughter.

SillyLittleLady said...

I use Cascade 220 all the time! I love it, I love all of the different colors. My everyday bag was made with Cascade 220 and Noro Silk Garden and I always get compliments on it :)

Julie said...

I love cascade 220! It's such a wonderful 'workhorse' yarn and perfect for my toys.

brenna said...

I have admired the French press felted slippers for awhile, but have never knitted them. Your new sweater design look lovely.

Choice Crackers said...

Cascade 220 has been my go-to yarn for years. It's just all-around great, and comes in so many colors! I've also had those slippers on my list to knit forever and ever. They are so adorable!

Alane said...

I've used Cascade 220 once, for a hat for a sailor. Wishing the whole time it was for me! It was a beautiful turquoise color, Lake Chelan Heather.

I've also been coveting the slippers; I don't know why I haven't jumped at it yet.

I hope this giveaway takes care of my coveting.

Codi said...

Love love love Cascade 220, have used it for several projects, it felts wonderfully and have made some great purses with it. I love the wide variety of colors it comes in, but especially the tweedy ones.

Tia said...

I LOVE Cascade 220!!! I made my 1st sweater in it. Granted it was for a 3 lb Chihuahua but still i made a sweater! I also made the first year Harry Potter scarf for my bf this year with the beautiful yarn.

Griffindor colors if your wondering. I love all the color too.

I've used Cascade 220 for a lot of gift knitting, where I need a specific colour (usually sports team colours!), and a reliable, soft enough yarn. Not what I use for myself, but great for gifts!

I love the Cascade 200. Probably my favorite thing about it is the nearly dizzying array of colors to choose from - AMAZING! Whenever I've got a friend, niece, child who wants a hat, pair of mits, or the like - I stand them in front of the stunning array of colors and say: choose! So fun!

Oiyi said...

I recently starting using Cascade 220 and I really like it. I made a bunch of toys with it from the MochimochiLand Book. And recently made a pair of mittens for my daughter with it. I love how it feels, the way it knits up and the many colors it comes in.

Cascade 220 is great for kids' mittens and scarves, too. What a terrific giveaway!

Forseth Fun said...

I haven't used Cascade 200 before, but have tried other Cascade cotton yarns and love them. Looks like a good enough reason to check their wool option out!

Kdunn said...

This was my first podcast of yours to listen to and I really enjoyed it. I haven't used Cascade 220 before, but I've been looking for something to make another pair of FPK slippers for my MIL and would love to try out Cascade 220. I'm always drawn to the dark purples.

elizabeth said...

I have never used cascade yarn, but would love to try it and both of those adorable patterns!

Three winners! Have admired both patterns and am a converted fan of 220! I made my first Wavy scarf from quattro when I started knitting again in 2005. It's like the Godmother to my second life of knitting.

Thank you so much-Carol

Kellie said...

I'm a relatively new knitter and just recently "discovered" Cascade 220. I absolutely love it! I recently finished a pair of fingerless mitts made with Ruby Cascade 220 and want to make a scarf to match. Great yarn!!!!

Natalie Servant said...

I've used Cascade 220 mostly for scarves. I recently made one with Cascade 220 Heathers & was really happy with the outcome.

I've never used it but I'd sure like to try it!

Jodi said...

Haven't tried Cascade 220 (fairly new knitter), but I would love to! The french press slippers are adorable.

Kate said...

I have a sweater going in it right now. I can't remember the color off hand, but it's something like mulberry.

Quiltgirl said...

Cascade 220 - what a great yarn. I made a sweater for my husband from it and he wears it day after day. I'm very pleased that he likes it so much - not too heavy, doesn't pill. I've made other sweaters and hats from it - it is a pleasure to knit with and a pleasure to wear. And those great colours! I haven't tried felting it yet, though....

Kenoshia said...

I've never used Cascade 220 before! I'd definitely love to in the future, though.

Huset i midten said...

Cascade has become really hard to get hold of around here - so a couple of skeins wouldn't go amiss!

lea said...

Excellent! I hope I win the yarn and slipper pattern would be put to good use :)

Päivi said...

Cascade havn´t been easy to get here in Finland earlier. I´m making a cardigan for my husband and socks for my son in law. I like the most of heather (?) colorways.
I enjoy your podcast. Have a nice christmas.

Little Miss S. said...

I'm from Denmark and the range of yarn is really not at all the same as in the states, so I haven't tried it yet. But I'm flying to PA for Christmas and hopefully I'll have a chance to go yarn shopping to bring some home.

dutchkiwi said...

I've been looking at cascade 220 as a possible choice for a different sweater (would be my first), I've been rather drawn to the purples, yellows and greens so far. It would be a wonderful prize to win :)

Emily said...

I love Cascade 220. It comes in so many different colors & it's really versatile!

Stickbodens bloggerkonto said...

Just love the blue colour!

I´ve never used this yarn but would love to win this skeins.

SovereignCrux said...

Hi there. =) I love Cascade 220, I find it a very practical wool to use with so many colorways to like that there's just not enough room to list all my faves. lol I also await all their colorways to be available in the sportweight version of the same yarn!

sooz said...

I'm from Australia, and Cascade 220 isn't available here except by internet order (why?! it seems like a big enough seller that someone out here should be stocking it...). I got a ball once in a swap and it was lovely - would be very happy to try more!

Barb T. said...

Let me see--just knit S. West's Windschief and am working presently on the cowl, Purl's felted Christmas trees, H. Fettig's Effortless Cardi all with Cascade 220. Do I love, love, love Cascade 220---YEP!
Favorite colorway is one of the Heathers--Sparrow!
It is the greatest yarn ever!

cheryl j said...

Sabra said...

I have used cascade 220 to crochet hats but never knitted with it. I do like my hats. Would love to try it with the wonderful slippers and who wouldn't want one of your original patterns.

Carol said...

I'm a "newish" knitter and have gotten most of my yarn from craft stores so far, but just made my first trip to a yarn shop. (whoa). Didn't buy any Cascade 220 at this time, but most certainly will in the future. Thanks for the giveaway and Merry Christmas!

Wooly Knits n Bits said...

Cascade 220 is my favorite yarn. It knits up soft, squishy, and my stitches are so even with it. I've used it for large amount of hats, sweaters, mitts and legwarmers.
This giveaway is perfect timing as my stash of Cascade is getting low!

I've had these slippers in my queue for a while.

I have a sweater I'm about to start in 220 in a heathered brown. I had never tried it before, but figured I had to since so many people love it! Thank you for the giveaway!

joyceetta said...

I really like Cascade 220. I've used it for felting slippers, felting bags, etc. I really like their heathered colors. Lovely. I always have a hard time picking out which color I'd like to use...they have so many lovely ones.

jsdknits said...

Cascade 220. Wonderful.

I have always wanted to make those slippers. Cascade 220 has never disappointed and I can count on it for almost any project.

Samantha said...

I've only used it once for a hat a few years ago, commissioned by a colleague-friend for her then boyfriend. Sadly they're no longer together so I have no idea how the hat held up.

Count me in!

Jodi said...

Those slippers are cute, and I love the new S&C pattern! My fav Cascade 220 color is Lake Chelan Heather, a lovely mix of heathered blue/green.

Funny I am looking to buy some Cascade 220 in green as we speak for a friend who asked for some good handknit warm mittens! It will be the first time I will knit with it! Congratulations for you latest pattern!

kelly said...

The last time I used Cascade 220 was for a felted bag. The color selection is very nice.

Chelsea said...

I've never used Cascade 220. I'd love to try it using your pattern to make my son a sweater!! I've been wanting to make him something but it's hard to find sweater patterns for little boys.
Thanks!

I LOVE Cascade 220! I don't think I've ever used it for a non-felted project, though. LOL I've made a lot of felted clogs with it, and I have plans for a sweater or two, but the sweaters haven't happened yet.

I love their heathered shades.

I'm a huge fan of cascade 220. Such a great workhorse yarn. I used it to make hats for me and my daughter and just made a bunch of soakers for my soon to be son out of a great green color.

I know Cascade 220 is a classic and I've been meaning to try it, but never have. So, I'd love to win some. And I've been DYING to knit the slipper pattern from French Press Knits! Love that new sweater pattern of yours too. All and all it would be an awesome prize! :D

Modisch Schreibt said...

I have actually only ever used cascade 220 for felted items. I have never ued it on a 'normal,' knit.

I live in Germany though and know of no where to purchase it. I have only ever picked up a few skeins of it while in the states. It makes for some SUPER felting yarn !

silverknits said...

I've never used Cascade 220, although It's on my to knit with list. I'd love the opportunity!

Andrea said...

Cascade 220 is my "go-to" felting yarn. I really love the variety of color and the quality. I'd love these 2 skeins. Thanks for the contest. Love your blog site.

nancy said...

LOVE, love, love Cascade!
Your Podcast is terrific!

Dutchgirl63 said...

Mostly when I use 220 it's for hats & mittens. It holds it's shape for things that get put on/off repeatedly. My favourite colourway would be any and all in the purple range. Heathers are especially nice.

Kitten With a Whiplash said...

Cascade 220 is one of my standard yarns - always in my stash, one of the first I think of or reach for when planning a new project.

littlesparrowknits said...

I'm another fan of Cascade 220 - I've found it's a great basic sweater yarn and love that it comes in a million colors.

I really like your new pattern! : )

Sarah said...

Woohoo! Slippers and a sweater, and such particularly cute ones, too. I love Cascade 220 because the colors are consistent, the yarn is durable, and it felts up perfectly! I love all of their shades of blue.

Judi A. said...

I'm pretty sure I've never used Cascade 220. I love the "Shrimp" and being next to "Regal Purple" and then "Lagoon" I thought they would make a great combo for something. :-)

Julia said...

I have been wanting to make those slippers for a while! Great giveaway.

Donita Porter said...

Have a wonderful Holiday! I made earflap hats for my grandsons with cascade 220 for Christmas this year.

Love Cascade 220! My sister has made the French Press slippers and they are ADORABLE! Would love to win this giveaway!

Keppy Girl Knits said...

One of my favorite pair of French Press Slippers that I have made I used Cascade 220 in a beautiful mix of browns/black (color 9556). It was a good thing I was gifting them to my sister...it was hard to let them go.

Krysta H. said...

Cascade 220 is my favorite yarn for cabled knits and felting. I would love to make the french press slippers - they are so cute. I think my favorite colorway is the the lavender heather Cascade 220 that I am using to make a shrug. It's so feminine.

Joanne said...

I'm yet to use Cascade 220 - most likely becasue it's not readily available here in NZ! I have heard of it, and have often wondered what it is like to knit with. That blue is stunning!

missmuffetnz on Rav.

Fleur Pang said...

I love your sweater pattern, Alana! I saw it a few weeks ago in the S&C newsletter I get by email. I could knit one for each of my kids! (two boys and a girl, 7, 5 and 2). My friend just mailed her Christmas card with her girls all wearing matching sweaters she knit them (all same pattern, different colors and sizes). AND, I need a new pair of slippers. Mine have holes in the bottom :(. I hope I win!

Rhian Drinkwater said...

I've used it twice, to make scarves as wedding presents for my sister in law and her husband. Very nice!

I have not used Cascade 220 yet but I've heard lots of good things about it. I love your sweater pattern too.

I love cascade 220! I have only had a few chances so far to use it but really loved it. I don't have a favorite color, that always depends on the season as to what I am loving at the time! Cindy Lowry

I've never had the opportunity to try out Cascade 220 as it isn't available here, to my knowledge. I have heard lots of good things about it, though, and the range of colours seems to be really great.

I really like Cascade 220, especially the heathers. I enjoy even plain knitting with it and it's so cozy to wear. I'm thinking of starting another sweater of it soon.

I've never tried Cascade 220 but I have had my eye on those slippers!

I am a new knitter. The first sweater I knit for my daughter was with an expensive wool and it began showing horrible wear immediately - I was so disappointed. My second sweater was for myself and I just happened to pick out some Cascade 220 - reasonable price, nice color! I was delighted to read such great reviews on ravelry, and so far would agree- I'm wearing it all the time, its wearing nicely, and its seems softer than I originally thought! I've been wanting to purchase more Cascade 220 - glad to see this post! Thanks!

I've used Cascade 220 for many things; I love their heathered green colors.

Unfortunately Cascade 220 is one of many yarns that are not available in New Zealand. I'd love to try it for a hat though

Cascade is one of my favorite yarns. I would love to win some more to add to my stash. I also love your new pattern and would not mind knitting that up.

I'm actually knitting a hat with Cascade 220 right now. I'd love to make the French Press Felted Slippers.

I would love to try out some Cascade 220, I'm newer to knitting and haven't tried it yet so thanks for reviewing it on the post. :) I've also had the french press felted slippers on my list of things to make for awhile so I'd definitely have to give them a go if I won. And I love the sweet simplicity of your camping sweater having two kids of my own along with many nieces and nephews that pattern would get some good use!

Oh yay! Love Cascade yarn! I have always wanted to try the french press slippers! Your new pattern looks fabo! What a great giveaway!!

I do like Cascade 220, especially the superwash. I haven't tried felting 220 before, but I've used the natural shades for hand dyeing and it works great.

I've been making so many trips to my LYS lately to finish up last minute Christmas gifts out of Cascade 220! I've got so many colors now! Thanks for the giveaway.

I LOVE Cascade 220. I made this beautiful scarf where I made different colored flowers out of the various Cascade 220 yarns and then sewed them all together. There are so many beautiful colors of Cascade 220 but anything in bright pink is great for me! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

Cascade 220 is one of my favorite yarns to work with. It's truly classic yarn for any occasion.
