NEW KIT: Cambio Cap (and a giveaway!)

It's time for that new kit I've been teasing you all with for months! 

When  Cambio Cowl was released all I could do was think about how cool it would be to have a matching cap!  (and yes, y'all, I'm thinking about mitts next!)
Cambio Cap is knit in the round with a bi-color mosaic stitch that plays with two VERY special yarns... an exclusive Freia Fibers gradient mini skein paired with Jill Draper’s newest yarn, Esopus.
Amaranth
Cloud
Flare
Vertigo
Cambio Cap is available in the same 5 colors of the cowl....  right now Flare is my favorite! (and Jill's too!)

90 yards (11 grams) Freia Ombré Lace
     (75% Wool, 25% Nylon)

One set US Size 3 [3.25 mm] double pointed needles

Tapestry Needle

You can order Cambio Cap kit from your local knitting store, or my Etsy shop!
So, I feel like celebrating, how about a giveaway???? 

I've got three Cambio Cap Kits to give away... the winners will get to choose their color (from my existing choices). 

I'm already thinking about new colorways to add for fall...so, will you check out all the colors Freia Ombre Lace comes in and let me know which you think I should play with next?   Leave a comment below with your favorite (and don't forget a way to get in touch with you!)I'll choose the lucky winners on Monday March 10th at 12 noon EST!

  14. Of the current choices, I like Amaranth (made a cowl in that color) and Blue Velvet the best. In the new colors, I personally like Cochinilla and Nightshade, but I think the really contrasty ones (like Hard Candy) would make a beautiful Cambio Cap or Cowl. Loris (manneko on ravelry)

  15. I was going to ask about mitts so hurrah you are thinking on them. I love all the choice but think vertigo would be the most eye-catching. Great way to evangelize about knitting (attemptedknitter on Rav)

  30. Bonjour and thanks for this give-away !
    I would choose Nightshade for the background and a bright orange (more orange than Saffron Robes Esopus) for the covering net ; first because these two colours match very well, and second because it reminds me the sunset, when the sky becomes very dark but while the sun is still there, less briliant but still coloured ; by the way, sunset could be the name of the kit.

  57. Maple is the obvious fall choice, with its colors of the changing leaves, but I am drawn to Pixie as a fall color. It reminds me of the grass and sky on those short falls days before we "welcome" winter.
