I would like either. I love fabric all the time, but I'm trying to get back into crochet, for while I have a little one, since it doesn't involve anything sharp.

littlecumulus said...

Wowza! I would loooove to win the yarn for a birthday present for my yarn-crazy BFF! Thanks for a great giveaway!

Casey said...

hanamik said...

I think I would prefer the fabric (I'm really getting into fabric a little over yarn as well!)

I love the quilt work you have done, I have just put my sewing machine away for a while as I have an obsessed love for knitting and am currently embarking on a charity knit, making afghans for soliders that have been injured, so as beautiful as the fabric is I would have to pick the yarn ..I will post his contest on my blog also great contest http://countrycreatures.blogspot.com/

sewstylish said...

Thanks for having the contest. I'd love the yarn if I win, and I've posted to my blog to get more chances.

alovelyday said...

As much as I love fabric and liberty, I would love the YARN. Both of our tiny yarn shoppes do not carry the M brand. I am always so jealous when I see knitted wears made of it!

TEXAUS MOMMA said...

either would be great! probably the fabric would be #1 though! Thanks for the chance!

Allison said...

Sounds like a good plan to me, clear out the old to make room for more new! I would love either, but I would extra love the fabric!!! Love your blog! -Allison cluckclucksew@gmail.com

Amy said...

I have seen so many people talk about Liberty fabrics that I think it's about time I got my hands on some! If I'd ever knitted more than one dish cloth I might be interested in the yarn, but the Liberty is definitely calling my name!

Cacao said...

i would love that liberty fabric. i've itched and ached to get my greedy fingers on some of that fabric for years, but cannot bring myself to actually part with $$ for it, yet.

oh, I love both! I'm both a knitter and a sewer - and the malabrigo is a beautiful colorway! but I'm sewing more now, so I'd probably pick the fabric... though I'd be happy either way!!!

Treasuresofjoy said...

I would love those fabrics, they are goreous, green is my favorite color...

Good luck with your yarn sale! Love the giveaway items. I'd definitely be interested in those lovely fat quarters. Fingers crossed! :)

Amy said...

love your blog. thanks for the entry! (sorry i missed out on the needles) i'm just a beginner knitter and that would have really set me up!

Tonya said...

These are two of my favorites, Liberty fabric and Malibrigo yarn. It will be so hard to decide! I think I would pick the fabric, because I am so behind on my knitting projects.

Kristen said...

I am a knitter who has also begun a fabric obsession. I think the fabric would be a great addition to my growing stash. The yarn is great. I just have no idea what I would do with it.

Martha said...

Darn, I love them both. I think I want the Malabrigo, but the fabric is calling too......

lovestitches said...

Despite my best intentions I can't knit so please enter me for the fabric.
