Your Help... and a giveaway!

I'm working on a new design for an exciting new project, and I could really use your help!  I can't decide which bead combination I like best!  The design needs both the small (size 8) beads, and the large (size 6) beads. As in the swatch above, the small beads will be on yarnovers, and the large beads will be placed on stitches.  (If you are wondering, the swatch above is the stitch used in Kinetik and the yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport in Midway)

As a thanks for your help, how about a giveway?  When I was in NYC at Vogue Knitting Live Ysolda gave me TWO copies of her new book Whimsical Little Knits 3... this book hasn't even shipped yet, so I know you don't have a copy!  Want to win one?  It is AWESOME!  I particularly love the Narwhal Mittens AND I think that Sherilyn would be lovely with beads!
All you have to do is answer the survey above and leave a comment here.  Please remember to leave a way for me to get in touch with you! The giveaway will be open until Tuesday January 31st at 12 noon EST. I'll pick a random winner AND let you know which beads I'll be using. Feel free to share this giveaway with your friends... the more opinions the better!

I'm off to Minden, Nevada tomorrow to teach at the Pioneer Yarn Company and enjoy Lake Tahoe... I'm sure to have some great pics and stories next week!

  2. I really think the small sparkly grey beads and the larger beads along the edge make a great combination! Those would be my choices to pair with that beautiful yarn :).

    Can't wait to see what you willend up with. Looks like fun!

  3. I am so thrilled to have discovered your blog. I've been working with beads for ages but have only recently learned to knit - so lovely to see all your pretties here!
    I've cast my vote & look forward to whatever you decide...hard to go wrong with any of these choices :>]]

  4. All of the bead choices are lovely. But I am partial to the lavender. As it seems I am in the minority, so far.

  5. The lavender-lined large beads are my favorite. They don't seem to stand out...in fact, I almost missed them running up the side, but I think out of the four choices, they are my favorite.

  6. I voted woth the majority :-) And I'd love Ysolda's new book!

    ReplyDelete
  7. My vote was for the sparkly grey and lavender beads but they all look nice.

    ReplyDelete
  8. It looks like it is going to be a lovely design.
    I love your giveaway too! ♥

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love Ysolda--you guys should collaborate on a design, I'm sure it would be amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  10. They're all pretty, but since I have to choose, I like the sparkly grey small beads, but I'm on the fence with the big beads. schmath@yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like the silver lined small beads. They don't compete as much with the yarn and let the design stand out a bit more, but still have that lovely beaded sparkle. But... I'm kind of at a draw with the larger beads. I like the taupe beads myself, but the gleam of the lavender beads stands out more. I think it is a better pairing with the small silver-lined beads, and gives that little extra flash. Either way I can't wait to see the finished project!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I voted for silver with lavender. Lovely prize and lovely new piece.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I've got a thing for sparkly, so I naturally had to vote for the sparkly grey with sparkly lavender.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I would chose Lavender lined and Silver lined beads

    have a nice evening !

    ReplyDelete
  15. really pretty design! was so hard to choose the beads! also what a fantastic give away!

    ReplyDelete
  16. They're all lovely, but I cast a vote for one of them. Can't wait to see what wins (and thank you for the chance to win this book!)

    ReplyDelete
  17. I voted Sparkly Grey and Taupe. Fancy but still fun!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love the first choice combination. Can't wait to see the end result.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Love the grey/lavender combination. Many of Ysola's patterns would be gorgeous with beads added!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Very pretty. Doesn't seem like you can go wrong with any of the selections.

    jspotter at mac dot com

    ReplyDelete
  21. I went with option 3. I think you need something that stands out on the stitches, and something a bit more subtle on the yarnovers.
    I love the yarn you used in the swatch, the colour is beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love the way the lavender lined large beads pop, and the grey small beads go with them so well.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I definitely prefer the lavender large beads. The taupe ones blend in too much. I voted for the sparkly gray smalls but the silver lined nice too.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Can hardly wait to see what the finished product reveals! I need to thank you for giving me some "knitivation," which I had been sadly lacking until I started the online lace shawl class.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm amazed at how many people agreed with me about the sparkly grey small beads with lavender lined large beads! Also, Ysolda is awesome, and i'm sure her book is too!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Love it! And I love Ysolda's patterns!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm one of your contrary votes, but I liked the 'Silver Lined Small Beads with the Lavendar Lined Large Beads'. Thanks for the opportunity to win an advanced copy of what is sure to be an AWESOME book!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Definitely the small grey & large lavendar.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Definitely like the grey beads better!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I vote for lavender lined and sparkly gray! You really can't go wrong with any. They are all great choices. See you tomorrow!

    ReplyDelete
  31. The sparkly gray beads with the lavender beads compliment the yarn color. The other colors of beads are more subdued and don't really "pop". I prefer pop!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love the lavender lined beads with the silver lined. It's so much easier to see the beautiful lines of the dropped stitches with the silver lined small beads :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. I will confess to loving what the majority likes, the sparkly grey with lavender beads. Makes the swatch 'pop' y'know!

    Also Ysolda for the win.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Oooh, I love Ysolda's designs! It was hard to choose which beads I liked best... really depends on whether you want them to be more subtle, or in-your-face. Have fun in Nevada!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. The sparkly grey beads are beautiful!!!

    The sparkly grey and lavender lines beads enhance the colors in the yarn so well and make a beautiful piece. Since I am fairly new to knitting and enjoying my first KAL with Kinetik, I'm not familiar with Ysolda. Would love to learn more about new knitters. Anxious to see your finished product.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Love the silver lined beads with the large lavender beads, the silver really lifts the colour of the yarn while the lavender gives it more depth, beautiful combo!

    Thank you for the giveaway and the chance to look at very pretty things!

    ReplyDelete
  38. They are all quite lovely, but I felt the Lavender lined beads blended in with the yarn and got lost. I liked the silver lined ones better. They seem to pop more.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Like the sparkly gray and lavender lined. Thanks for the chance to win Ysolda's book. Have fun in Nevada.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I just cast my vote in your bead poll. Very fun - much better than the survey questions I have to answer at my job!

    Would love to win Ysolda's new book. She's a new designer to me and I'm really enjoying her work!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like the sparkly grey and lined lavender. I think they stand out in a complimentary way. I look forward to seeing the design!

    ReplyDelete
  69. It will be interesting to see the final selection, maybe we can at least learn the yarn and color...

    I think this will be a good book to add to my library. I have been meaning to use some of her patterns so this will encourage me to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I put my vote in! Can't wait to see what the outcome is! Enjoy your teaching trip!!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I'm leaning toward the first option! Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Tough decisions on the beads, but I think that the first is my favorite, closely followed by the third.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wow! what a lovely combination of colours, I must admit I would be tempted to toss both the small beads in one dish and both the large in another and pick them up whichever came first! anythingbutsnow on Ravelry

    ReplyDelete
  80. I can not believe the combo I liked the very best it leading the preferences at 63%
    And, I am with every one else in regards to Ysolda. Maybe, just maybe this book will be sent my soon very soon :*)

    ReplyDelete
  81. I liked the first one but I think they would all look nice. Thanks for the giveaway

    ReplyDelete
  82. Love your swatch! Someday I'm going to try something with beads.

  83. I'm going through a purple phase right now, so I voted sparkley grey and lavender. (last week I found myself referring to a certain rich royal purple as 'juicy' and then explaining my choice of adjective for five minutes to a group of wide eyed teenagers). Also, I adore Ysolda. :D

    ReplyDelete
  84. Oh what a beautiful combination - it's a hard choice, but I'd have to say the small grey sparkly ones and the large taupe lined ones.
    Can't wait to see Ysolda's newest little book. All her creations are so beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Thx for the opportunity !

  88. I picked option one, which seems to be the most popular ;) I think the beads on that option really stand out beautifully but work perfectly with the yarn :)

  89. Without a doubt Option 1. It is just so pretty, I can't wait to see what you make.

    Loved Vogue Knitting and had a chance to quickly say hi to you... I know its weird because when we take your Craftsy class it's like you're a newfound friend and you're knitting with us in our living rooms on a regular basis. It's hard to remember you have no idea who we are! just fans :)

    ReplyDelete
  115. I picked the sparky/lavender combo even though I am not usually a lavender fan but I love the shiny, sparkly-ness against the grey. i adore everything "Laura Nelkin" and cannot get enough, even though I bite off more than I can chew!

    ReplyDelete
  119. All the choices and that yarn are very pretty, I can see why you couldn't decide. I couldn't decided between Sparkly Grey and Lavender or Sparkly Grey and Taupe. I went for Taupe but apparently I'm in the minority.

    ReplyDelete
  120. I like the small sparkly grey beads with the large taupe lined beads... As always, though, your work is stunning!
    Thank you for this opportunity to help you in your work and for the opportunity to win such a lovely book!

    ReplyDelete
  121. Oooh, all colors I love. Can see why the dilemna. You won't go wrong with any of the options; but I chose the subtlety of the taupe large and iridescence of the small grey. I love the yarn color choice but don't know without seeing in person if the small grey compete too much. Can't wait to see what you go with! And, thank you for another giveaway! Hope, hope…

  122. I like the silver lined small beads and the lavender lined large beads. Thanks for the chance to win!

    ReplyDelete
  123. It kind of depends on what the project is... the sparkly grey small beads look like a continuation of the yarn; the silver lined small beads have a little bit of contrast.

    I could see either of them being good, but "best" really depends on the project as a whole!

    (although I think the lavender lined large beads look a little better than the taupe lined large beads regardless)

    ReplyDelete
  124. depends on how mnay beads you need but I like the lavender lined large beads and the silver small beads

  135. I cast my vote! Looks like most people have agreed with me. I just think the sparkly gray and the lavender lined beads coordinate with the yarn better. They're sparkly enough to stand out but coordinate well so they are part of the piece.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Do not enter me in the giveaway as I have already purchase the digital version.

    Just wanted to say I chose the silver lined small beads because I think they give a lighter feel to the design and do not draw away from the other elements. I chose the Lavender Lined Large Beads for the opposite reason, their color seems a little stronger and I think the Taupe Lined Large Beads kind of get lost in the yarn color.
