Love these books; Last Minute Knitted Gifts is my ultimate 'go to' for quick projects! Thanks for the giveaway.

It has to be the blues and mauves, so let's say navy and iris.
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCornflower
Light grey and bright pink!
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLaura
I would LOVE to win this. Thanks for offering!

Fave felt combo = bright orange + grape or moss + leaf. It's too hard to decide!
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commentergigi
Awesome news! And the cases are wicked cute too. My favorite color combo is sunshine and steel :-)
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChris C.
Sun and fuchsia. I love bright, warm colors.
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSarah K
I would pick deep magenta and cobalt. Thanks for the chance and Happy Holidays!
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterdeidre corbet
It's almost a cheat because they're right next to each other on the page, but magenta and deep magenta are just amazing together.
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAnnika
I'm really drawn to the whole row of pinks, but the fucshia and magenta in particular are calling my name.

December 20, 2011 | Unregistered Commentersusan wilson
Really? Only two from all those colours? Hmm. I would have to say Light Grey and Sun. And who wouldn't love some knitting goodness on a Kindle. I sure would!
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKirsty
This is hard to choose, but I think it would be Spring + Steel. I'd put the Steel on the outside and Spring to line.

I'm redecorating our bedroom right now, so I'd have to go with Light Grey and Atlantic; they remind me of wintry bluffs overlooking the ocean <3

Thank you for the giveaway! Happy Holidays!
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterLaura
They are all so pretty! I really love the Turquoise and Deep Magenta. Sun and Maroon are a great combo too-remind me of my alma mater colors.
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterML
What a generous giveaway! All the colors are beautiful and I like different colors for decorating vs wearing. Atlantic and Lapis grabbed my eye.
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGrace
My favorite combo is Bark & Turquoise!
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSteph

What an amazing giveaway in time for the holidays! I'd love to see what the grape and raspberry felt look like together. Raspberry would be such a bright cheery color to see when you open your case. Thanks!
December 20, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSara
Oh man oh man, just one combo?
I'm in love with the seagreen, and I think ecru would be a nice contrast for it!

My fingers are crossed!
