Thursday I will post a winner.



  1. I like the milk chocolate with light turquoise. Even the garnet with the milk chocolate might staring at my very neutral family room furniture which could definitely use some color! Kit Tails is a pretty pattern with lots of possibilities.

  2. bshart: Garnet and pumpkin are pretty. And I love garnet because it is my birthstone!

  3. I like the shades of autum combo...probably because I used something similar for a flying geese border on a qui K t

  5. Shades of Autumn. I love that roasted pumpkin! Are all of the colors from Shepherd's Wool? Don't pick me, I already downloaded the pattern. :-)

    1. Yes, Cindy, these pictures were taken directly from the Stonehedge Fiber Mill's website. And thanks!

  6. I tend to prefer jewel tones, so I'd like something with royal blue, purple, burgundy, dark teal, that sort of thing.

  7. I like the roasted pumpkin and garnet. They make me hungry. I love your kite tails pattern.

  8. Hi Meg,
    Just saw your pattern on Ravelry and it's lovely. It looks like we have quite a bit in common, including our love of shepherd's wool. My favorite color combo from above is the green and blue, but I am in love with the milk chocolate color, just not with the blue, I don't think there is enough contrast for your beautiful graphic design.
