My husband and I have really been wanting a kindle. Maybe we will get lucky since we spent all our money on the kiddos ;) for Christmas. I love the raspberry with bright yellow, and the steel with pink! Crossing my fingers, thanks for a chance to win!

I like Pea and Periwinkle. I am partial to blues anyways and that pea green colour looks great with it, I think!
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermartina in newfoundland
My fave color combo of the wool felt would be leaf and magenta! Sort of a color wheel option to the standard red and green holiday combo. Happy holidays to one and all!
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNickie
It's such a hard choice, but I like blues and pinks, so I would pair lapis with carnation.
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBarb Gibbs
I love the coral/grape combo! I would love to win a kindle fire and love to use the knitting books on them! Thanks! What a fun giveaway :)
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEmily Stahowiak
Spring and Lilac are gorgeous together!
What a generous giveaway!
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJanet Reinhart
It's pretty hard to choose just one combination of Wollfilz felt. I'm pretty much in love with each color upon focusing on it. But I'll go with the latest combination of colors that came about accidentally in my apartment - Rust Brown and Bright Yellow.
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLiz Kaplan
Ok...with so many colors, its hard, LOL! But, I would love Kelly and Fuschia together, and also Sun and Dark Orange. What a wonderful giveaway, but if I don't win, maybe I can make a case with the felt for my kids' Kindles:-) Happy holidays!
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterchristine vuksanaj
This is wonderful, I love any color combination of pinks. Thanks for the chance.

December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJulie D
Raspberry and Peppermint for the color combo (incidentally, two flavors that go great with hot chocolate!).
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAlexandra

Because I love so many of the colors (so much!) I thought about my extremely energetic 2-year-old to pick a combination: bright orange and fuchsia fit her spirit.
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterEmily

This took a long time choosing but I love 31 and 62 as a combo - though all the colours are just beautiful. Purl is my favourite website. I just come and drool on a daily basis!

December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHeather
Wow, what a fantastic giveaway!! I'm obviously a Purl Bee fan, and I've been a fan of Melanie Falick since discovering her "Kids Knitting." The books sound totally scrumptious, and even if I don't win I'm gonna have to get some of them. :)

My favorites in this palate are Kelly and Cobalt.
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLynda

I think it's impossible to choose a favorite! I think I'll go with light grey and magenta today!
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCarrie L
What an awesome idea!! This would make a great gift:) I love that the e books are preloaded! Makes for easy knitting!!

The deep orange( reminds me of the Pantone 2012 Tangerine Tango)
and beige. Simple, but classic and on trend for 2012.
