Love the question! It's hard to narrow down the options. It might be faster to list colors I don't like together. :)

Generally, I love Robin's Egg Blue with Chocolate Brown. Right now I'm obsessed with MadelineTosh TML Windowpane (light aqua) with Tomato (red/orange), which I'm sure will change tomorrow.

Happy Holidays!

I'd be happy to win any one of these e-books, let alone the kindle fire loaded with 8 of them!!!

My favorite wool felt color combo is "steel" with "charcoal." I'm in a bit of a gray funk at the moment. Maybe a win would brighten my day and make me choose some brighter colors...

And those felt cases are awesome.
