i'm loving yellow right now, and while i like it with grey, as is so trendy right now, i like a little more color. bright yellow and raspberry is my favorite combo!

Cobalt and fuschia are beautiful. They create a color block perfect for the fall and can be used together through the spring :) ahhh color!

You are always inspiring, thanks!

I'm going to have to go with Steel and Fuchsia. It would depend on my mood as to which I'd like to have be the outside of the case!

Periwinkle and Spring:) yummy happy Holidays to all!!!
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNancy
Cerulean and Sunshine- reminds me of Pride and Prejudice (the movie version with Keira Knightly). The blue is so calming, and the gold reminds me of early summer evening.
December 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda
Seagreen and iris. Reminds me of a Tiffany window.
December 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJen
I love lavendar and bubblegum. What beautiful felts!
December 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline
I would say sun and moss or sun and dark orange. Both equally gorgeous to me.
December 22, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterkelli woodall
raspberry and light grey, without a doubt....helps me purge the holiday colors and make way to warm snuggly February...
December 22, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterrobin
Great to see these wonderful books go digital! I love dark orange and bright pink :)
December 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKim
Hmmm . . . I'm a green girl, so I'd probably choose something like grass green with bark. Need to get into your warehouse to see these in person! Thanks for the contest. :)
December 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJani
My two favorite color combos are:

1) Raspberry & Charcoal
2) Sun & Lapis
December 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPaula
I think the Pea Green and Carnation would be very fresh looking together. I thought I had enough knitting books, until I saw the impressive list that is pre-loaded on the Kindle Fire, and realized that I had none of those! Now I KNOW I don't have enough knitting books....
December 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGay F.

I like the coral and the kelly green together - a twist on the classic red and green.

I've been drawn to gray/yellow combinations I've been seeing everywhere. So I'm going to pick the light gray and bright yellow.
