Pumpkin and ecru! The books alone are inspiring - I am just beginning to embrace knitting, after being a sewer/embroiderer all my life. What a fabulous giveaway!

What a wonderful opportunity! I have an old Kindle that I love love love. I can put my PDF knitting patterns on it (oh so very convenient), but without the color they just aren't the same. I love the case as well, I'd love one in blues or greens. I think this is one of the best give aways I've ever entered.

My - it is hard to choose only one, but I think in the end for this project, I would go with Sun and Magenta. Sun would be on the inside and I would make little cutouts in a radial pattern in the magenta felt so the sun would peek through on the back of the device. Thank you for designing such an easy project to that is beautiful and minimalist!! The giveaway is truly wonderful and precisely what I would load on a Kindle Fire if I were to win one.
