    Carole Wilson

  2. I would also love to make the Lupe Cardigan! How cozy it will be in the beautiful and soft Alpaca yarn. I hope you choose me.

  3. The Lupe cardigan is stunning with its ingenious center back detail! It would be a fascinating knitting adventure.

  4. The yarn looks great! The Josephina pullover is my favorite of the patterns though. Would be great over leggings with boots for the fall.

  5. I would really love to knit the Anita Wrap Vest-AMANO Warmi, This yarn looks so soft and beautiful. Thanks! for this lovely opportunity.

  6. Elsa wins this round. I love love love the cabling…and to work with Mayu would just be dreamy! Thanks for having the giveaway!

  7. The Antonia cardigan is so lovely! The pattern texture and scarf tails at the front, this would be my first pick to knit 🙂

  8. I would love to knit the Dorita Pullover. It has a clean, fresh, simplicity about it. Just enough style to make it a classic.

  9. I absolutely LOVE the Lupe cardigan – the back is just beautiful! I already looked it up, and Puna yarn is not sold in any LYS in my province 🙁 Pretty please!

  10. It is a toss-up for me between the Dominga and the Anita. I’ll go with the Anita; my foot is in a knee-high cast for two months, so I think I could finish it in that time!

  11. I would love to knit either the Antonia – or – the Lupe cardigan. They are both gorgeous!
    Thank you!

  12. Dorita Pullover has an interesting shape with the geometric pattern- beautiful! It is going to be a fun knitting project just in time for the cold season.

  13. The Anita Wrap Vest in Amano Warmi looks very interesting! These yarns are gorgeous! Thank you for a chance to win!

  14. I would love to make Lupe. This pattern is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for sharing.
    I hope I win the yarn my fingers are itching to get started

  15. I would love to make the Anita Wrap Vest. I especially like the textures of the various patterns of this Vest.

  16. The Antonia is so classically stunning and wearable with anything. I’d wear it with jeans to the market or a long skirt to a holiday party.

  17. The Else vest, made with the gorgeous Mayu yarn is beautiful to look at, but would feel delicious to be wrapped in, not to mention the pleasure of working with this yarn.

  18. Oh, the Antonia cardigan is calling my name! I love the long, sensuous drape of the Mayu fabric in the pattern photo. It truly does remind me of a flowing river, as in its name, and I can only imagine the silky feel and sheen of the alpaca blended with some cashmere and silk. It would be sheer heaven to knit and to wear! Thanks for offering this fun opportunity to enter a drawing!

  19. I would love to try the Lupe Cardigan. Never knitted with such wonderful sounding yarn and would love to work on something so elegant. Thank you.

  20. It’s a toss-up. I’d wear the Lupe cardigan all the time, but the cable on the back of the Elsa vest…Mmmm.

  21. Which would I pick…that is a tough one. The Lupe Cardigan and the Elsa Vest are both beautiful. But the Elsa Vest looks like more of a challenge, so that would be my choice!

  22. I would love to knit Lupe cardigan. The detail and style of this sweater are exquisite! I love the color as well.

  23. I can’t wait to literally get my hands on this yarn, I love alpaca. I would love to win the warmi3 kit. That sweater looks like it could be an all purpose clothing item. Can’t wait to win!

  24. The Lupe Cardigan is gorgeous. I love handkerchief styles and the new yarn line is lovely. Cusco Roofs is particularly pretty but some of the other colors are tempting too.

  25. I’ve never knit a sweater before, but would like to start with the Anita wrap vest.
    All the patterns and yarns are gorgeous. Thank you!

  26. I would love to make the Elsa vest. The design on the back is fabulous and would definitely hold my interest while not being too challenging.

  27. I would love to have the opportunity to make the Lupe cardigan or the Antonia cardigan. Both have such ‘delicious’ styling details. The examples shown in Amano yarns are lovely & make my fingers ‘tingle’ in anticipation to work with them.

  28. Everything about the Puyu yarn — its beautiful natural colors and chunkiness — makes me want to wrap my knitting needles around it to create the Marcelina pullover!

  29. I would love to make the Lupe Cardigan. The color is wonderful and the pattern will flatter any figure. It would also be perfect to wear on a day to take the chill off.

  30. That´s difficult. They are beautyful everyone and each. 🙂
    But if I have to choose: the Elsa vest would be fantastic to knit and then to wear. Thank you.

  31. The patterns are all gorgeous, but I love the back detail of the Lupe cardigan. That’s the one I would most like to knit.

  32. Having visited PERU this year, I would be thrilled to work with one of these new yarns, but the ELSA Vest would be my favorite – I love working cables.

  33. I want to win the sweater kit to knit the top left sweater as I can wear it whenever I travel to countries that has 4 seasons.

  34. I would make the Dorita Pullover. I love the details on the back and down the sleeves. And knit in Puna, it would be so soft and comfy.

  35. The dorita sweater would be gorgeous. What a beautiful looking wool. Anyone would be delighted to receive such a gift. Whilest in Peru last year we found some amazing wools and beautiful knitted garments with it. I did buy a jumper and it is so soft against the skin and easy to look after.

  36. The Dorita pullover is classic and has some interesting shaping. I could see myself knitting and wearing this one for years!

  37. I would like to knit the Josephina pullover for my Granddaughter who is graduating as as a PA0physicians assistant in December and has already bee n offered a job! I also visited Peru last February so Ive enjoyed seeing the names of the yarns

  38. I would love to make the wrap vest. I’ve knit with alpaca wools before and when I see the selection and blends from Amano – I can just imagine how beautifully these projects must knit up.

  39. ….. The Anita Wrap Vest …. love the stitch-work ….. the color …. it looks like a vest I can live in!

  40. The Elsa very is beautiful and is a versatile wardrobe piece, I will definitely put this pattern in my knitting queue.

  41. I love the Lupe cardigan, it will be my first finished project in 3 years. I need to focus on the beautiful pattern, the last time I knit a multi patterned project, it was a fisherman knit afghan for my mom.

  42. I would love to knit the Anita wrap vest. All of these yarns sound wonderful! I think I would need to make the Paulina cowl to go with it too. I’ve just started brioche knitting and think these designs are clever uses of the stitch.

  43. They all look fabulous. But I would like to make the Marcelina Pullover in AMANO Puyu. It looks so cozy and warm

  44. I would be honored to be chosen to knit with Amano and make the beautiful Elsa Vest with it’s stunning cablework going down the back. This would be a challenge for me but I promise to make both Berroco and Amano proud! Thank you for this opportunity!
    Happily Knitting, Kimberley

  45. I think each of the sweaters is wonderful and has unique details. I like the Antonia sweater the most. I hope to find the book that includes all the sweater patterns!!!! I will buy it as soon as it is available.

  46. Whow…I love them all…especially in my favorite yarn:D but..I think if I had to choose
    it would be the Josefina Pullover, here in Colo. I would wear that each and every day..
    thanks for the amazing opportunity.

  47. You can’t go wrong with any of the choices as they are all gorgeous. But, the Lupe cardigan is calling me. it’s saying, “Pick me! Pick me!”

  48. I would love to knit the Lupe cardigan. I am in pharmacy school and in need of a destressor project. This project would help me keep my sanity. Please pick me!!

  49. The Lupe top is bang up-to-date, yet timeless, great for layering with skirt or pants, flattering on all sizes and sporting a very unique back. I love ‘unique’ and I love making an exit in style!!!

  50. I think the Antonia cardi is just lovely! it would be wonderful to make for my granddaughter! I know she would love it 🙂

  51. Thanks for this contest. I would love to knit the Marcelina sweter, just to think it would be all Alpaca! Ahhh… happy winter!!

  52. Sorry, I think wordpress ate my first attempt to post! lol But I would love the Antonia for my granddaughter! I know she would love it also! Thank you 🙂

  53. I would love to make the Anita wrap vest. I can just imagine a cold day feeling snug & content wrapped in this beautiful unique yarn!

  54. I think the marcelina pullover is absolutely gorgeous and would love to make it….I really think you need to pick me to win the kit…thank you so much!!!

  55. I would love to knit the Anita Wrap Vest – it’s lovely! I do love all of these patterns and the yarn looks scrumptious!

  56. I’m a beginner knitter and I’m impressed with the details you can get with knitting. I loved all the patterns and couldn’t choose so I asked my husband! He immediately picked the Lupe Cardigan.

  57. I would love to make the Lupe sweater! Such beautiful details! And done in Alpaca! How awesome! Please pick me!!

  58. I would love to knit the Dorita pullover. The pattern is so delicate and goes so well with the super soft yarn!! I would wear this sweater to go out for drinks and amaze all my friends!!

  59. I would make the Dorita pullover for my daughter’s high school graduation present. It is a classic seasonless sweater that is so lovely. Please pick me….

  60. I would like to make the Dominga top. I think it would be just right for winter here in Alabama and I love alpaca yarn.

  61. I love love love the Lupe Cardigan, just what I’m looking for. Lovely! Loved the front when I first saw it. But that back detail – oh my!

  62. I love the Anita vest. I knit a lot of vests as they are the perfect compliment to wear, not too warm but add interest to your outfit. The yarn looks luscious , would love to win!

  63. The Josefina sweater is perfect for layering. Love it. In fact the whole collection looks amazing
    and the yarns, well yummy comes to mind.

  64. I’d love to make a beautiful, warm Josefina sweater! I love the blog and the Berroco newsletter. Thank you for a great resource.

  65. While all of the patterns look like a FUN challenge, I’d love to knit the Lupe Cardigan! Its intricate back, along with its graceful front flowing edges make for an exciting garment that makes a statement!

  66. So many beautiful patterns! The Marcelina pullover looks so cozy, the Lupe cardigan and Elsa vest have intriguing back detail… I think I’d have to choose the Anita vest, it’s not something I’d try to knit with alpaca if I were choosing the yarn myself. Bravo on the launch of Amano!

  67. I would knit the Anita Wrap Vest but in Olive Green to complement my hazel eyes. I do love the Beetroot color also. Alpaca is my favorite yarn to work with, it just feels so good and always works up well.

  68. I love the back detail especially on the Lupe cardigan so I guess I’d choose that one, although if I needed to pick a second one, the Elsa vest is also incredibly lovely.

  69. These are sooooooo gorgeous! I’m torn between the smooshy gorgeousness of the Josefina and the silky subtle variegated Antonia so i flipped a coin. Antonia won a “best of 3” flip so I’m going Antonia. 🙂

  70. I’m very attracted to the Dominga Top, but the Anita Wrap Vest ismore my style! Do I really have to pick one!!!??? OK, ok! the Anita Wrap Vest!!!

  71. Beautiful yarns…. beautiful patterns!!! My favorite is the Lupe Cardigan. The color is perfect to go with everything + I LOVE cables. This method (join 2 cable panels as you work) will be new for me though, + I love a challenge. Thanks for the contest!!!

  72. My niece would love the Josefina Pullover, as a new mother it would help hide the last of her baby weight as she continues to drop those last few pounds.

  73. It’s so hard to choose just one, for this giveaway, but I don’t have to choose one for myself lol. As for right now, I would choose the Marcelina, as it is getting chilly here and this would be perfect!

  74. I love the Lupe cardi. In fact, I’ve already downloaded the pattern. Would be sooo nice to win the yarn to go with it!

  75. Lupe Cardigan. So fun to see the Quechua yarns – I use to live in Bolivia and learned Quechua, and love seeing these familiar terms used for yarn!

  76. Lupe Cardigan.
    I used to live in Bolivia and learned Quechua and I love seeing the Quechua words used for yarn!

  77. I would love to make the Antonio cardigan. It reminds me so much of being in Peru and the creative way fiber is so much a part of that amazing country.

  78. Thank you very much for this fabulous give away. If I am chosen to be the lucky winner, I would chose the Lupe cardigan. This was a tough choice because all of the patterns are lovely and alpaca is simply warm as can be.

  79. I love the flowing design of the Lipe cardigan. Then when I saw the back I was awestruck! What an innovative way to seam the two pieces together with that gorgeous cable design!

  80. I love the Elsa Vest but the Marcelina and Lupe are also in the top running… All of the patterns look awesome.

  81. I knitted my first sweater at age seven using Alpaca yarn my father had gotten at work. I have dreamed of working with this beautiful yarn again ever since and would love to make the Anita Wrap, it looks gorgeous! Thank you!

  82. I would love the yarn for the Lupe Cardigan! I want to make this as a gift for my sister! She’d look absolutely stunning in it and it’s just her style :}

  83. Oh, I just saw some of the yarns at my LYS! Couldn’t keep my hands off of them. I’d love to knit the Antonia cardigan; it’s so elegant!

  84. I would love to make the Antonia cardigan. It looks like it’s interesting to make and like there is a story behind it. For someone who considers herself a writer, that appeals to me.

  85. The Lupe Cardigan, an excellent Christmas for my daughter. It is just a great design that can be casual or dressy. Thanks

  86. Favorites are Josefina, Dominga and Lupe. I work in a LYS and will advise manager to order Amano yarns. Hope we get them!!! and hope I win the kit!!!!

  87. Jeepers, they are all very lovely and “up to date”. If I truly had to choose, it would be a toss up between the Anita Wrap Vest. Or the Josefina pullover. But they are all lovely!

  88. The Lupe Cardigan is stunning!!! It is definitely a truly unique twist from the “common” patterns of so many other designers!!!!! Truly the entire collection is wonderful.

  89. I would love to make the Lupe sweater to wrap myself up in. Oregon winters are cold and rainy.

  90. Dorita Pullover it’s just what I have been looking for. It’s the sort of knitting pattern just right for knitting during winter evenings, simple yet elegant.

  91. The Anita Vest would get me submerged into knitting again after not having knitted much during the past Summer!

  92. I would love to make the Antonia sweater!
    Thank you for this contest! You are going to make someone very happy! These yarns are fabulous!

  93. i just love the elsa vest and would be so thrilled to make one and to try this beautiful yarn. It could be my new favorite yarn

  94. Definitely the Elsa Vest. Such a beautiful and elegant Vest and in Alpaca it will be sheer luxury (and keep my back warm when my colleagues turn down the heat because they are warm – men!).

  95. oooh to choose just one??? how can I… I think my favorite is the Marcelina Pullover, and so very scrumptious in baby alpaca and silk mix… this is perfect for those Northeast cold winter days! please pick me!

  96. I’m thinking a brown Antonia cardigan would be beautiful for fall.
    These are some beautiful patterns & lush yarns!

  97. Love the ease with the Josefina Pullover. Not only is it about my skill level but airy enough to deal with frequent temperature changes (dare I say…hot flashes!). 😉

  98. very hard to choose just one that I would like to do. However, since you are making me choose I think the first one I would make is the Lupe cardigan.

  99. I am torn between the Marcelina and the Elsa vest. But if choices must be made, then Marcelina, because I would wear it more often.

  100. this is a tough choice, but i think i like the anita wrap vest best. not sure whether i would make it for myself or my daughter; i know she would love it too! it’s a gorgeous piece and i would be excited to be able to make it with a free kit!

  101. I would love to make the Lupe cardigan! I’m making the frida scarf now and love the yarn and the pattern!

  102. Marcelina pullover, that is right up my alley, warm and chunky but a little sexy too with the off the shoulder thing going on!

  103. I am drawn to the Elsa Vest. Being a math teacher, geometric designs appeal to me and the cables add fluidity to the polygons. The twisted cables elongate the design and accentuate the body’s curves. Amano Maya is a perfect choice with its softness of Royal Alpaca and cashmere. The silk fiber will add just enough sheen to capture the eye. Looking forward to working with these new fibers.

  104. I want to knit the Anita wrap vest! I can’t wait to get my hands on some of this yarn, it sounds just lovely. I’ve already d/l the Lupe cardigan pattern, so off to find the yarn! I would love to win, thanks for having this giveaway.

  105. I would LOVE to make the Josephina sweater! Just my style. I can picture myself in this with some patterned leggings and ankle boots! Would be my favorite sweater!

  106. This is so hard, the gorgeous, bang on trend Marcelina or the lovely classic Anita. Anita has it, perfect with leggings and boots this season and next ………

  107. OOOOhh! I would love to knit the Elsa Vest. Very gorgeous and stylish, perfect for So Calif weather and appears that the pattern has enough variation in design to keep it interesting.

  108. I would love to make them all, they are both casual and elegant at the same time, but since I must choose one, I would say the Ella Vest, since once made as a vest, it looks like it can be modified to be a beautiful dress as well.

  109. Dorita Pullover for my daughter in Maryland. She loves the feel of good yarn and I love the way it knits beautifully. I am new to knitting and have found the alpaca to be a yarn of choice.

  110. Lupe works for me. I don’t have the figure anymore to have the more form fitting ones, but this is elegant, and can be dressed up or down. Would love to be able to knit it in the yarn it is called for instead of having to substitute.

  111. It’s a close call between Dorita and Elsa. Looking at the fronts, I think I’d pick Elsa, but it would depend on what the yarn said to me.

  112. Love to try making the Dominga top. I’ve got lots of long sleeve tops that would look fabulous as a base layer under it!

  113. Each of the patterns are beautiful! I can imagine a few people dear to me in a few of these. My personal favorite is the Antonia Cardigan.
