I would love Jekyll on any base. I’d probably choose an Advent pattern to take advantage of the fade.

What a lovely giveaway! I would choose Hyde on a Hybrid base, ideally, but any would be fun! xo!

I’m a Jeckyll… Please any base will be so appreciated! It will definitely turn into an Ambah shawl for sure.

Knitting helps me destress. I’m living in Philadelphia just 2 days before the election. I’ve got constant helicopters buzzing overhead to cover the protests. There’s one up there right now and it’s 9 in the morning.


Valerie said:

This is such a great giveaway! I would love Jekyll in Hybrid or Stellar. I would make a shawl or some socks for my son and I. He loves all the colors you can get with the hand dyed yarns. Every time I make myself something, I have to make another for him.

Judith Blumenthal said:

So many changes this year, the world is in a state of chaos, the virus, back to work after being retired, less time to knit, winter coming and not seeing my grandkids for over a year! I desperately need something to look forward to. Thank you for your kind offer.


Judy said:

Would love a Hyde in the hybrid base. Itching to knit a woolsia shawl!

Jekyll on singularity, a wrap or a sweater for my goddauguter.

Claire Coulter said:

I’d love a Hyde on the baryon base. Expecting a new addition at the start of next year. Playing with random minis would be a great way to get through the long, sleepless nights.

Jekyll on Hybrid! Likely a sweater or shawl. 😃

Jennifer Dooley

Jennifer Dooley said:

Hi and thanks for this amazing giveaway first of all. I’d love the Hyde kit in your stellar base for a bit more sparkle in my life. I’ve recently started knitting on top of crocheting and I’ve seen some amazing knitting advent patterns this year that I’d love to try ❤. Failing that, I’d knit loads of scrappy socks with the beautiful mini skeins. Thank you again.

It’s a full moon , and I’m going to cast on a new SPELL 🧙🏾 It contained yarns and needles. It will be amazing!!! But I’m short in yarn 🧶 help help . Please send me some yarn.

Suzie Le Cheminant said:

What a cool thing to do for someone! I’d pick Jekyll on hybrid and make my mother a Kentia Wrap.


Laurie said:

Gee I’m leaning toward Hyde just because it’s an anything goes one. But either is marvelous. First pick is stellar for the sparkle.

Hyde on a hybrid base for a fade shawl.

Susan Butler

Susan Butler said:

Jekyll, hmmm… my mind is currently wandering toward the Butterfly/Papillion shawl. I would have to purchase a solid skein, but I am imaging all the little pops of colour a mini would give that kind of shawl…. delicious!


Jemma said:

Jekyll on singularity sounds dreamy. I would like to make a wrap, perhaps Ambah’s radvent wrap, to hold some comfort in such a difficult year.

cathy chow said:

Hyde on the Hybrid base sounds like a good combination for Ambah’s radvent collection of patterns

Elaine Froneberger

Elaine Froneberger said:

Hyde on Hybrid. It sounds so wonderful my needles are itching to knit it into a wrap for the winter months!

Whitney Karp

Whitney Karp said:

You are so kind to bring a little brightness into 2020! My son is just learning about the periodic table in school, so I would definitely go with Hyde, probably on the Hybrid base (but they are all great!). If I win, I will use it on one of Ambah O’Brien’s Advent patterns. (I think this year will be the new Radvent Throw or the Adventuresome shawl.) I’m excited for December 1 to arrive!

Megan boyd

Megan boyd said:

I’d love the Jekyll base in symbiosis double knitting to knit an advent shawl. Thanks for the opportunity


Helen said:

I would love the Jekyll on Baryon base to make an Adventurer Cowl and Kentia Hat.


Caroline said:

I almost don’t want to enter, because I did get a beautiful set of skeins in the yarn fund project. I’m polishing my newfound knitting skills a little more before turning it into a fade shawl.

IF I could pick, it would have to be Jekyll and Hybrid, and a very special project I would search out to suit the yarn. Most of the Tunisian patterns at Aklori Designs are written specifically to be worked as a fade, so I’d probably start there :)

I would love to receive one of these sets

Sue G said:

I would love a Jekyll fade advent kit, because I really want 2020 and Covid to fade away while a craft away at my advent project


Carlita said:

Well, as I studied Chemistry, what else can I choose than Hyde, with the Periodic Table Elements? That sounds like a lot of fun and perfect to make last year’s ADVENTuresome Wrap by Ambah O’Brien. All bases seem perfect to me, but Hybrid would make a truly wonderful wrap.

Rhiannon Ferguson

Rhiannon Ferguson said:

I’d love jekyll in any base and I’d probably make one of your many lovely shawls I have saved, would just need to pick which one I’d buy first, so many to choose from xx


Linda said:

I would love Hyde in any base you have. Thanks so much for this chance to win!


HB said:

Oooh I think it would have to be hybrid, because I can’t resist some luxury! A Hyde pack I think, since I love a bit of unpredictability….and…to make a super snuggly wrap.


Janice said:

If it’s yarn, I’ll love it.

Tehmina Gladman

Tehmina Gladman said:

Ooh, how lovely! I would love the Jekyll Kit in the Hybrid base you’re knit Ambah’s Radvent cardigan.


Sue said:

There are so many amazing patterns for advent kits and I love to make one of them with your yarn.


Dorothy said:

I love the Symbiosis and Hybrid bases. Although l am drawn to the fade of Jekyll, Hyde intrigues me as well. If l win this drawing, l would make a shawl or wrap…possibly Ambah’s latest design…as a gift for my mother’s upcoming 90th birthday.


Lulu said:

Wow! That Jekyll & Hyde is amazing! If only I won, I’d find the best Ambah pattern to match the yarn!
I would like to win!!!

I would love to have the Hyde DK kit on the Symbiosis base. I would use it for Ambah’s Radvent throw.

Amy Crumpton

Amy Crumpton said:

I think Hyde on the dk base would be appropriate for the year. I would love to make a sweater for my daughter who lives in Chicago!


Alexa said:

Jekyll on a Hybrid base would be wonderful! Thanks for the great idea with the giveaway :-) I would knit an Ambah pattern.

Sarah Marks

Sarah Marks said:

Im happy with anything in any base. This year has had many twists and turns and an amazing surprise would be a fabulous finish to the year. If I won id make Ambers advent Cardigan which looks amazing.

Lisa Luft

Lisa Luft said:

I would love the Jekyl in the Hyde base to do a fade shawl or throw for my chair! Thanks for the chance to win!!


Kim said:

I would love the Jekyll advent because I love the fades


Val said:

Would like either one.


Teresa said:

Oh how fun. I’ve love to win a Jekyll kit (fades intrigue me) in they hybrid base. I would knit a shawl, or maybe try for a fade hat & scarf set.


LAURA said:

I’d have to choose the Hyde, since this year has been so unpredictable. In the same spirit, I would have you choose the base,to complete the total randomness of this spectacularly awful year!


Cheryl said:

Thank you so much for sponsoring this. Two people will be overjoyed. I’d love either Jekyll or Hyde in the hybrid base, but truthfully any base would be a joy to have. I’d make one of Ambah’s amazing wraps.


Millie said:

Such a delightful treat! I would love either, but Hyde in fingering would be lovely to make a wrap or cowl.
Thank you!
