I've had my eye squarely on all the Qing fibre. 😍


I haven’t ordered much this year, recent move equals no money, but my most favorite purchase of all time is BMFA Sparkle in Stars Hollow. I love it so much, I used it as the color palette for the living room in my new home.


I always drool over the Poste striping colors, but can never decide which to get - free tote day seems like a good time to take the plunge and pick one!


My lost recent purchase were some skeins of Hedgehog Fibers to complete my Find Your Fade shawl. I'm trying to decide which colors of Qing Fibre need now.😍😍😍

Angela Medina

You have such beautiful colorways. Can’t wait to try a skein!!

Nancy F.

Don't think I made a purchase this year, but I did order one of last year's Valentine's day specials! Made a beautiful pair of socks with a pink speckled yarn!


My favorite purchase this year was some of the Irish Life in the Long Grass. What pretty yarn for a pair of special socks.

Kelly Schmidt

Sadly, I haven't ordered from you yet, but I love your Poste Self-Striping yarns! I want it in Buckeyes, Green Bay, & all of the wizard colorways.


I haven’t ordered in a while (trying my best to knit up my stash), but I absolutely love browsing your Hedgehog Sock collection! I’d love to try Artifact, Poppy, and so many more.

Kathleen Buckalew

I haven't ordered anything yet, but I have certainly drooled over almost everything...specifically west yorkshire spinners.


I just had to have a ball of Regia 6ply Blue Zone Color in 6671 because it looks like a BB-8 from Star Wars in yarn form (I’m not even a Star Wars nerd, but that little guy is so cute). I loved it last year and still wanted it this year, so it came home with me!


My favorite purchase this year was Primrose Yarn. It was wonderful to knit with.

T Craven

Last November, on a Saturday that you were opened!!!, I purchased a squishy threesome of stash for a yet TBD shawl.....Socks that Rock Heckley Speckly coordinated with two Lorna's Laces - Blackberry and Patina. Also. I ran into a guild member out away from home too. Such fun!


Favorite purchase this year has been Hedgehog sock!

Susan Rudolph

Um - everything? Right now I'm coveting goblin from Hedgehog fibres on skinny singles.

Marilyn  Hutchens

I have to admit, I'm a sucker for ALL of the Mineville Wool Project Sock yarn!!!! I absolutely love it!!
This year, my daughter and I ordered 11 skeins in one order (besides my personal orders) and that had to be the funnest order, yet!! It was a mix of MWP and Malabrigo Sock yarns. To date, I've knitted only 4 of those skeins but 5from my previous offers!!


My favorite purchase of the year has been the Opal Sock by Hue Loco. I have a grey speckle and hot pink that are dying to become my first brioche project.


My favorite purchase is the skein of poste yarn self striping in Petra. I love striped socks and I love how soft and durable this yarn is. I also love the hedgehog fibers yarn I bought for a cowl.

Courtney Lore

My favorite ssyc purchase has been a couple skeins of bright yellow mineville wool project that I made a cute little cardigan with :)
Love the selection of yarns that you carry!


I bought a SQ of Malabrigo Rios that actually turned into a sweater during the Ravellenic games. So soft and squishy.


My favorite was some Poste worsted weight yarn on the 250g skeins. Love this yarn and made a hat and some fingerless mitts for the granddaughter. I still have some left and plan to make more of both.


Loved the Dream in Color, Opal, and Poste yarns! Your fast shipping is AWESOME!

Jennifer Carabio

I would love to order some Hedgehog Fiber!!❤️

Rachel Weissenstein

Ive ordered tons of hedgehog from you in the past and adore all the color choices!!!


I'd most like to order the Regia Cotton Tutti Collection 6! Perfect for the prize, should I win it!

Shannon Kampa

HHF potluck 2n is my favorite purchase to date!


I'd like to order Coastal and Damask in LITLG! :)

Janet Duff

I have always wanted to order some Hedgehog Fibers., but can’t make up my mind which to choose. May favorite order was Classic Elite Alpaca Sox yarn to knit Pinked Socks. They turned out beautifully!

Krista Rhodes

Posted sterile jollyville is on my "to buy" list. I love those holiday but not colors!

Christine Gushard

Without a doubt, The Mineville Wool Project 80/20. Love, love, love this yarn. It's gloriously squishy, the colors are fabulous and it knits like a dream.


Congratulations on your anniversary! What an amazing achievement. My favorite has been my mwp sock in ink blot, I think it's so beautiful 🌹


I’ve reallt enjoyed the Madeline Tosh DK yarn and Opal sock yarns I’ve purchased from you! Not to mention ny Karbonz DPNs. Absolutely love your store and selection!


I haven’t ordered any yarn yet this year (trying to knit from stash), but I loved ordering the entire Opal Fresh & Juicy collection last year when you offered it as a set. I’ve knit 2 pairs of socks from it so far and love them!


I have yet to pull the trigger on yarn from you guys but I longingly fill a cart and then let it marinate for weeks. I am a sucker for self Striping yarn and you have so. many. options..
I especially would like to order a Gryffindor color for my son. but there are so many fabulous options it's hard to choose.
I also really love it when you have the sets with a mug and yarn or a cute project bag and yarn, I've just been on a pretty big yarn diet since I discovered you.

Stephanie Alexandre

I would love to get some Sweet Georgia Party of Five Royal and Whirlwind! I have been wanting to come up with a pattern to use for each of them!

Paula Newman

Really? My favorite? Every time I walk into SSYC I find things I HAVE TO HAVE! My most recent favorites are LITLG in color Tangerine Dream and Hue Loco in color Dirty Talk. The will be used in separate projects.


You have so many wonderful yarns that this will sound funny, but my favorite purchase this year was some Online Cotton Stretch Uni for my husband -- it's hard to find cotton-wool blend sock yarn, and even harder to find it in colors that go with men's dress clothes, so these two balls of grey sock yarn were quite the find for me!


There is so much that I'd like to buy from you. It's one of the reasons why I haven't made my purchase yet, I can't decide what to buy first. If I had to choose one thing first I'd probably go for Qing yarn!


I haven’t made a purchase yet but I’ve been eyeing your Poste striping Sock Yarn fot a long time now so I’d purchase a few skeins if that in my first order.


Lots and lots of HEDGEHOG FIBRES! Congrats on 13 years.


My favorite purchase was my HHF skinny singles that I stocked up on when thy released their new colors! I still have t used them, but I have big plans ;)


I ordered two skeins of a beautiful pale blue from you last year that I love, not that I can remember what it was, and it's not in my Ravelry stash! What made it so special was that you had posted a picture of new yarn on Instagram and I responded that I might need some of one of the colors in the photo. You immediately responded with what yarn it was and I was able to order it right away. THAT is customer service! I also love my kit with speckled yarn and the mason jar glass that says something like "this yarn makes me look awesome"...or some such thing. Just love it and I corral some of my needles, hooks and ephemera in there!


I think my favorite purchase so far this year is a group of hedgehog skeins I bought to make into a unicorn-inspired Chevron Shenaningans shawl.

Lindsey Thomson

Malabrigo Rios yarn! It knitted into a beautiful bun hat.

Amy Hesting

I LOVE my HHF Sock in a crazy potluck I chose for my Mother's Day gift. It's so beautiful and it makes me happy to knit with it. My other favorite purchase was a skein of Stitch Together Sock in Metal Mind. That is a fabulous color and I'd love to knit a sweater out of it!

Right now, I've got my eye on HHF Sock in Dijon and Swift Yarns Sock in Desert Bloom. I must be in a yellow mood!


i NEED to try some of your Poste yarn. that’s all i know. 😁


I'm not sure if I have ordered from you. But I do like that you carry so many brands. If I were to order now, I'd probably get Ms Babbs Yowza DK since I want to knit more sweaters. I have over a hundred pairs of socks already, and only 2 feet. Thanks for the giveaway.

Gaye R. Kligerman

Here a speckle, there a speckle, everywhere a speckle, speckle!!! They are “speck”tacular! My heart smiles when I knit Preemie Hats with them that I donate to a local hospital NICU!
Gaye 💝


I would love to get some Miss Babs Yowza in any of the gorgeous colors.


It has been a while since I placed an order, but I would love to try some yarn from Dragonfly Fibers. Both the Dragon and Djinni Sock look fabulous. You have so many beautiful yarns that I’ve heard about but never worked with. I hadn’t realized Dragonfly Fibers is in the DC area, practically making us neighbors; so they would be my first indulgence.

Lisa Wierzbicki

Your company was my very first online yarn purchase when I learned to knit 10 years ago! I still love my green polka dot dpn case I got from you!
My wish list...I’d love any hueloco yarn but Mouthy Goldfish looks so different! I’d also love to try Addi Flexitips and one of the BL larger project bags! Thanks for the chance to win!


My favorite purchase this year is LITLG Nourish colorway.


I loved my lace fleece artist yarn--it was deliciously soft, and so gorgeous! ❤

Pam Hunter

My favorite so far this year has been the Post strip with minis with the cashmere for the different toes, heels and cuffs. I want to try the Texas-bama. I saw it knit up in the front of the shop when I was on my way out the door on Saturday the day.


I have ordered once from you. I loved the Hue Loco yarn I purchased! I hope to order again soon! Maybe tomorrow.....


Hmm, that’s a hard one. I love everything I order from SSYC! But the last thing I purchased that I love is Primrose Yarn Co. in Forbidden Forrest, so beautiful!

Heidi Maloney

I’ve purchased several skeins of Hedgehog sock and skinny as well as some Madelinetosh and Primrose. I think my favorite purchase has been the two skeins of Primrose Adelaide in Aphrodite. But how can there ever be a single favorite? It’s all delicious!🐑🐑🐑🐑

Lisa Wood

Firstly 13 has always been my lucky number huge congratulations to you all!!!
Secondly I would have to say my greatest purchase was a Poste yarn that is black and rainbow all over, it’s been used in my first Pi shawl and it’s gorgeous!!

Thank you sooo much for being my go to sock yarn site and may we have many, many more years together!



Today I'd be tempted to purchase a set of Addi Flexi Flips and a skein of Poste Striping in the Paradise City color.

Dari Trout

I'm actually not sure of when my last order was. :-/ I know that I LOVE the Knit Kits! I have had the good fortune to get a couple and they are awesome! Your selection is legendary and your service is top notch! Happy Anniversary! Now... to try for one of those tote bags tomorrow....


Unfortunately, with my husband and I both being teachers in North Carolina (NC teacher’s salary is embarrassing) AND having a daughter in college, my yarn budget is very slim, so a I haven’t placed an order yet. I’d love to try anything by Hedgehog or Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Both brands have been on my radar for quite a while now. Thanks for the chance!!! 💕

Colleen D'Allura

I just started a cowl with Manos del uruguay alegria in colibri that i ordered forever ago. It is wonderful to knit with. I cant wait to buy more! Congrats on 13 yrs!! I love your onlone shop!!


This is easy: all of the Madelinetosh for my Comfort Fade cardigan!


I'm a sucker for the favorite this past year was the Halloween kit with Sugar Skulls project bag and Derry, Maine striped yarn. Love SSYC!!!


I love the BMFA Sprinkles that I purchased. I love all the MadTosh!


I bought a friend a skein of Madelinetosh Sock called "dachshund" because she had a new mini doxie puppy. Can't wait to see what she makes with it!


Love every purchase but really love the special kits you take the time to put together with yarn bags, coffee/tea mugs and Little unexpected goodies!

CY HERITAGE 150 PRINTS 12 To start


Hi Allison - over the past many years, you have sold me the best yarn, mugs and kits and I thank you. My favorite yarn, and you are the only one who I know of who sells it is the Sock Monkey Yarn! Everyone that I have made them for loves them - different and whimsical! Thanks, Allison

Theresa Smith

I’ve made many purchases in the last year and it’s hard to pick a favorite but your kits are just outstanding. I loved the one with the faux fur Pom Pom and yarn in a project bag.


My favorite purchase is a tie: Poste Select sock in Camelot for the sleeves of a sock arm sweater and a merino silk blend from Cascade that I’m going to use to make a light, lacy shawl for summer. Yay SSYC for such a huge variety of awesome yarns.

Terri Bringar

I have liked every kit that I have gotten from you, but I really like Hedgehog yarn and the kitchen pot luck of Post yarn.

Julie Marshall

I haven’t ordered any Hedgehog sock yarn yet (only singles) and I am drooling over Kimono & Budgie. Gorgeous colors!

Carlee Casey

I purchased Malabrigo Mechita in English rose to knit a sockhead cowl for my friend who’s been battling for her life with an illness for the past 2 years! She picked it special from your site! Thank you!

Melissa Martinez

Whenever I have a hankering for Hedgehog Fibres, you have it in stock! And its always something super exciting like....gray.


Today I’d like to purchase TurtlePurl Yarn, Striped Turtle Toes, Air Force One.

A different version of my favorite red, white, and blue.

Thank you for the contest!


I've been quite happy with all of my purchases from you (and there have been many this year)! My favorite has been the Spring Speckle Club! I have had great fun with it.

V Leigh

BMFA Colossal Winter Wonderland...beautiful. Keep changing my mind about what to do with these two skeins, but it is still making me happy just looking at it!


happy anniversary! I don't think I've made a purchase this year yet, but I've been ogling the Fleece Artist Saldhana.


I have not ordered from you before but now I see you carry Hedgehog Fibers so I see a purchase in the very near future. I definitely need a skein of HF Sock in Boombox.

Lisa p

Id say my most recent order, several of the arne and carlos pairfect! Happy Anniversary!


Happy Anniversary!! I haven't ordered before but you carry so many dyers I would love to try. First on my list is Poste Yarn self striping sock, beautiful colors, Festival of Lights & Jollyville.


I bought some lovely Hue Loco from you last summer. Happy anniversary!

Jonina B

Congratulations! I have not ordered from your store yet, but I would probably purchase some self striping yarn and a cool project bag! When I am back in Indiana visiting family, I would love to pick up some things in person. ☺️

Rachel Holmes

I purchased some Hedgehog fibers yarn in Bollywood And it is amazing! Shipping was fast and easy to order from the site!!

Cindy Carpenter

Hard to pick one... hedgehog fools gold I think.


Since I haven't bought anything from SSYC this year, I would love to get a SQ of LITLG in Nude. Can't decide on what base though.

Clare Wilkinson

I haven’t ordered before—-but if you only knew how many times I almost did!!!! Your yarn is beautiful and I love the wide variety.

My first choice would be some of the poste yarn—-every single color is gorgeous!!!!


Susan Gray

I don’t think i’ve ordered in a while, because with two small children my stash lasts a lot longer than it used to, but your Poste Striping is my favorite sock yarn of all time. That SW Corriedale base is just perfection!

Debra Johnson

My favorite so far???? All of it!!!

Ryann R

My favorite purchase was my fade with Swift’s woodstover, and Hue Loco’s Master of Disaster, I Smell Teenagers, and Muscle Up Buttercup for the Ewe Rock shawl by Sosu 😊

Brenda Wilson

Congratulations! My favorite purchase was the Mither’s Day kit last year. Beautiful yarn and a beautiful bag.

Arika R.

I have yet to order from SSY, but I have an eye on Madelinetosh's Sock in Candelwick. I bought Madelinetosh's Twist in Candelwick several years ago and used it to make A Thousand Rainy Days, though a sunnier version. I had never liked yellow until then and now I want all the yellows! For years I only wore black and grey, and now my wardrobe looks much different and is filled with so many colors. It is such a happy color and on rainy or gloomy days I try to wear bright colors, especially yellows.


My favorite purchase so far is the set of hedgehog minis - I know what they will become, but right now I’m enjoying them as they are!

Cindy h.

I was so happy to get several colors of your poste yarn.

Megan Bakaric

I've been wanting to try Poste yarn for awhile. I love knitting striped socks!


Haven't purchased anything yet this year. May treat myself for my BDay in July. Would love some Poste SS yarn.

Rena Law

I would looove to knit with some Qing Fibre!


I love everything I've every gotten there but I really miss shopping in person. It's my most favorite thing ever. I do need some more madtosh twist light for a project, but I'm not sure of the color yet.

Jodie E

my favorite purchase this year has been my miss babs yoza what a skein. It makes a gorgeous shawl that I can't wait until the fall to wear. :)
