Let’s talk turkey, with a holiday gift set giveaway from Soak and Lorna’s Laces!

For those of us in Canada, this Thursday is just another fantastic day at the office. We’re long past the days of turkey, eaten more apple pie than should be eaten and are well focused on our holiday shopping. In an effort to support our American friends and the start of their weekend feasting and holiday season, we’re offering a couple of our new Lorna’s Laces + Heel holiday gift sets for you! We’ve shipped an abundant amount of gift sets to local yarn shops around the world.

We were packing,

then they were packing.

While the gals at Lorna’s Laces are focused on Turkey fixings like cranberry sauce or gravy, we prefer to ponder the likes of apple pie vs pumpkin pie. We’re giving away one of each of the following sets: Beverly with Peppermint and Purple Club with Scentless.

So the great task? Tell us in a comment whether you prefer apple pie, or pumpkin pie with your Thanksgiving dinner (or any time for that matter) and we’ll choose a random winner for each gift set. You have all weekend to eat pie and ponder your choice. We’ll keep the contest open until Sunday night at midnight. The winners will be announced Monday and the prizes will ship shortly thereafter. 

For a chance to win the other two sets, visit http://lornaslaces.blogspot.com/ and follow the instructions there.
If you aren’t one of our lucky winners, you can buy one for yourself or a loved one at your LYS or we have a limited number for sale at  www.soakwash.com. Follow us on facebook, twitter and Ravelry.com. Share the Soak love and good luck!

Happy Turkey, from all of us at Soak.

  10. Abby says:

    mmmm…. pumpkin pie, for sure! You’ve got my stomach growling, just thinking about it!

  11. danadoodle says:

    Apple pie all the way!

  12. jenn says:

    That’s a tough one. Pumpkin because it’s only appropriate to eat in the fall!

    Pumpkin pie. I just finished making one!

  17. Cathy Peterson says:

  18. Christine says:


    BellyLaugher on Rav

  19. allison says:

    Absolutely pumpkin! It’s best for breakfast the next day too 🙂
    thanks for a great contest!

  20. Apple most of the year but I love that one slice of pumpkin over Thanksgiving for a special treat. Is that too on the fence?!

  21. Pumpkin for sure. You can apple another time but there is something special about family, Thanksgiving and pumpkin pie.

  22. Lorna's Laces says:

    I have to say pumpkin. We can have apple all year long!

  23. Susan B. says:

    Gotta have pumpkin after Thanksgiving dinner. It tastes like fall!

  24. I love apple pie. My MIL continuously makes pumpkin pie and looks surprised, every year, when I turn it down. So some Beverly with Soak would really soothe that pain. LOL


  25. Jocelyn says:

    Apple pie anytime.
    although I have to admit I have never had pumpkin pie so once I taste it I might love it too. 🙂

  26. victoria merriweather says:

    pumpkin pie!!!

  27. marianne says:

    I do like a good (not soggy) pumpkin pie, but I think I like apple pie a little bit more! thanks for this chance to win!

  28. Kelly K. says:

    Of course APPLE PIE!!! It’s the all American classic! It’s great hot, warm or cold and especially with ice cream. Apple pie a la mode anyone? You can eat it all year round because apples are available all year round. Pumpkins are once a year.

  29. Tara says:

    Apple pie, preferably with ice cream. Served nice and warm, please!

  30. Lori says:

    Pumpkin CAKE with rum!

  31. kimmie says:

    warm homemade apple pie! nothing says holiday time like the smell of apple pie in the oven!

  32. Shirley says:

    Pumpkin pie with walnut streusel topping and lots of whipped cream. Just this one day of the year.

  33. Kamigaeru says:

    Pumpkin! It was the first kind of pie I ever liked. Great for breakfast!!

  34. Erica K says:

    Pumpkin because it’s still a seasonal pie and I consider it a treat during the holiday season. Apple can be found year-round which to me is a bit more ordinary.

  35. Jen Potter says:

    I’d love to have a piece of both, please. I love pie.

  36. sally carey says:

    both, but if forced to chose – apple – thanks for asking

  37. Lindsey S says:

    Pumpkin. (although really i prefer pecan)

  38. Kepanie says:

    Pumpkin pie made by my mum rocks.

  39. neeuqdrazil says:

    Pumpkin pie! No, apple pie! No, pumpkin pie! (I can’t choose!)

    But generally, apple pie, because I find most pumpkin pies too sweet and grainy.

  40. ohdessa says:

    Apple pie all the way!

  41. Nyx says:

    I am a huge proponent of pumpkin pie when the season is right, I love to use pumpkins in savory meat-and-pumpkin pies that taste like a spicy soup or in a sweet straight up desert pumpkin pie with whipped cream or even better, a little clotted cream.

  42. Erica says:

    Pumpkin pie! (and now I feel guilty that I haven’t made one yet, just apple and cherry)

  43. Laura says:

    There is no contest. Pumpkin pie is all that is right in the world. Apple never stood a chance.

  44. marytehlman says:

    Apple pie all the way! I cannot stand pumpkin.

  45. Mimi says:

    Pumpkin pie with whipped cream!

  46. Darinka Dalessio says:

    Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin!….(followed closely by the cranberry apple apple pie I invented several years ago. thanks:)

  47. Tammy says:

    Pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, apple crumb the rest of fall….

  48. Grace Yaskovic says:

    Pumpkin, we eat apple many times during the year but my favorite pie in the world is only on thanksgiving

  49. Maureen Moran says:

    Could I have a little sliver of each? No? I’ll have pumpkin on Thanksgiving and the apple for breakfast the next day. 😉

  50. Kat says:

    Definitely pumpkin!

  51. Ellie mcgovern says:

    I would definitely pick apple pie over pumpkin, but my real favorite is pecan!!!

  52. Kate says:

    Pumpkin pie and pumpkin flavored coffee! ,,,but only after pumpkin soup, pumpkin muffins It would be a tougher decision if I hadn’t had apple pie for breakfast.

  53. Kelly says:

    pumpkin Pie

  54. denebir says:

    Pumpkin w/ whipped cream please!

  55. Linda Quick says:

    Apple! Apple! Apple! And a happy Thanksgiving to all!!!

  56. Fiona says:

    I am very fond of apple pie. Hubby is English and can’t bear the thought of eating pumpkin pie, so we don’t see much of it in our house!

  57. Amy says:

    Happy Regular Thursday! I prefer Pumpkin Pie!!!

  58. Donna says:

    Pumpkin pie for sure, but I love apple every other time of year.

  59. Jennifer says:

    Pumpkin pie!

  60. Lise trevino says:

    Pumpkin pie because it is a tradition after all.

  61. Deb says:

    Pumpkin pie!!! Of course! With just a wee dab of whipped cream…

  62. floribunda says:

    pumpkin — or even better, sweet potato!

  63. Sue Edlin says:

    Pumpkin pie is the winner here. With apple as a close runner-up. Pumpkin is festive, Pumpkin is colorful. Pumpkin is good with dinner and again for breakfast.. Got to go now, and check out dessert for the big day.

  64. Pumpkin Pie with just a little bit of whipped cream and a good cup of tea.

  65. Kathy Beaumont says:

    Pumpkin, please. With whipped cream, of course. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  66. Bonney says:

    I absolutely LOVE pumpkin pie! I don’t know why I don’t eat it at any other time of the year. It’s delicious!

  67. Carol says:

    Well, I’m not much of a pie person because if a dessert doesn’t contain chocolate, well, what’s the point. But when asked to choose, I’d take apple over pumpkin.

  68. Kristi says:

    I love me some apple pie!

  69. Megt says:

    Pumpkin is always a favorite at this time of year.

  70. Megt says:

    Pumpkin is my favorite at this time of year.

  71. Faye says:

    Pumpkin pie all the way! I grow pumpkins, so it’s nice to see them through to desert 😉

  72. Kathy says:

    Pumpkin, pumpkin, pumpkin….with whipped cream! Thanks for the contest!

  73. Angela says:

    Apple pie! I love a warm piece of pie with a little vanilla ice cream on top.

  74. It has to be pumpkin with a good non dairy topping. Homemade of course.

  75. Gale Longley says:

    I love apple pie, I can eat any pie at anytime of the day- year- mth. I’m so bad I love pie..

  76. Krystalline says:

    Apple pie, preferably ala mode. 🙂

  77. Judith Pruski says:

    Pecan pumpkin pie!

  78. Elaine Pohl says:

    apple pie – with cheddar cheese of course!

  79. Katherine H says:

    Pumpkin Pie

  80. Julianna says:

    Let’s see… Pumpkin pie 🙂 Especially if there’s whipped cream involved!

  81. KarenV says:

    Pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, but probably apple pie otherwise. Funny how that works isn’t it? Tradition.

  82. Yummy. Pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving, but Apple pie the rest of the year. I love both 🙂

  83. Liz says:

    I prefer apple pie!

  84. Mary Anne says:

    Apple pie with crumble and ice cream ~ YUM!

  85. giecam says:

    Apple although I would happily take a slice of pumpkin if offered.

  86. I prefer apple normally but thanksgiving doesn’t quite feel right without pumpkin:)

  87. Gracey says:

    Apple – all the way…I really love Dutch apple pie – with the little crumblies on the top..

  88. Ashley W says:

    I love apple pie, especially with a big scoop of cinnamon ice cream!

  89. Myshell says:

    Oh absolutely Pumpkin Pie. I make them from scratch every year. Its all my family will eat now 🙂

  90. Irene says:

    I love me some apple pie! In my mind, the fact that I’m eating fruit (and thus being “healthy”), gives me permission to indulge! =)

    Thanks for the gorgeous kits! I have a new thing on my Christmas list!

  91. scotvalkyrie says:

    Oh, given the choices, it’s pumpkin, but my favorite is good old pecan pie. It makes my teeth hurt just thinking about it!

  92. Yarnwarrior says:

    Hmm. Very hard to say. It depends very much on how the two pies are presented, but I usually end up with a slice of each on my plate. I love the creamy contrast of the pumpkin filling with the pastry crust, and the usually more crunchy texture of the apple pie. As I said, very hard to choose.

  93. Abby M says:

    Pumpkin, can’t live without pumpkin!

  94. Linda Hebb says:

    I prefer pumpkin pie myself esp my m-i-l’s recipe

  95. Mary says:

    Pumpkin pie. I love pumpkin pie so much that I ask for a slice for my birthday instead of cake! Was greatly disappointed for a recent birthday that had a “0” in it when I asked for but did not receive a pumpkin pie. The this year I received two!

  96. Pumpkin Pie please!!

  97. kristen h. says:

    Honestly…i love a good apple pie…with french vanilla ice cream on top!

  98. Emily says:

    Warm apple pie with vanilla ice cream… yes, please!

  99. Jill E. says:

    Pumpkin Please!!! (And fingers crossed!)

  100. Kristi ~ Ohio says:

    I love apple pie all year and pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving. Thank you for this great giveaway.

  101. Definitely an apple pie girl 🙂

    There doesn’t seem to be anything better than apple pie xD at least to me!

  102. Linette says:

    I never knew pumpkin pie deliciousness til I moved to the states. So that’s always a treat for me in the fall. Don’t like apple pie much, but am thinking that an applestrudel would be the best pairing for a “gobble” dinner dessert, with vanilla ice-cream on top

  103. Ina says:

    There *must* be pumpkin pie with Thanksgiving dinner! Thanks for the giveaway!!

  104. Wehaf says:

    I definitely prefer pumpkin pie! It’s my favorite pie of all.

  105. apple pie with ice-cream!

  106. LaurenS says:

    apple pie – or even better apple strudel … and maybe some sweet potato pie to go with that.

  107. Christie Nowak says:

    Waaaaaah! I. Can’t. Choose! I make both from scratch, and love both dearly! Though I guess I’ll go with pumpkin, as that is my “assigned” pie for the holiday. (My aunt gets to make the apple pies – Dutch apple, of course! LOL)

  108. I like both pumpkin and apple pie, but i’d rather have any other dessert instead. The lack of chocolate i think might be the issue. But pie with ice cream makes everything better.

  109. Melody says:

    Oh Apple Pie is the best and preferred Thanksgiving dessert around here! It just taste’s like fall!

  110. krista rhodes says:

    Definitely a pumpkin girl, it’s always felt more rare. & today it’s pumpkin Bourbon cheesecake!

  111. Karina says:

    Thanks for offering such nice gifts! I think they would make excellent Xmas presents! Apple or Pumpkin huh? That’s a tough one. I like both. Very much. However, I tend to have apples out the back on my own trees and will opt for making that more often than anything else. When I grow pumpkins, I will make pie from them and they are pretty yummie. It is definately hard to choose though.

  112. mesha says:

    What a great package! All pie is delicious, but I’ve got pumpkin pie on the brain this week. Pumpkin pie, maybe with a smidge of ameretto, has my vote.

  113. Carol Perecman says:

    Love ’em both, but if I have to choose, pumpkin!


  114. mary b. says:

    Apple pie any day. Would love to win the kit. Thanks!

  115. Nicole C says:

    It just doesn’t feel like Thanksgiving unless there is pumpkin pie involved. Thanks!

  116. Diane Eskritt says:

    Apple pie with ice cream or pumpkin with whipped cream…skip the pie and give me just the creams. But if I have to choose, I choose apple.

  117. Robin F. says:

    PUMPKIN no contest- This year we made chocolate pumpkin pie!! Winner Winner!

  118. Wendy says:

    PUMPKIN, with REAL whipped cream…nothing in a can!

  119. Aimee says:

    I could eat pumpkin pie anytime or anything pumpkin for matter.

  120. Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving and Apple ANYTHING any other time of the year! Is that decisive or what? : ) Hope you guys have a nice weekend!

  121. Myriam says:

    I’d have to say pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving – it’s just right!

  122. Kristin says:

    Any other time of the year, I’d say apple pie. But at Thanksgiving, it has to be pumpkin pie – with vanilla bean ice cream 🙂

  123. Rosemary says:

    Not pumpkin, not apple but chocolate pecan pie.

  124. Neha R. says:

    Pumpkin pie- with ice cream, whipped cream, or choc chips. Mmmmm.

  125. Jamie says:

    Pumpkin all the way!

  126. Definitely pumpkin pie!

  127. phoenixhopes says:

    I love them both but my favorite is apple

  128. Lynn says:

    Pumpkin pie for sure!

  129. Shelley says:

    I prefer apple, but Thanksgiving is the only time I eat pumpkin.

  130. Kerstin says:

    I’m an apple pie person.
    I make my own and several variations as well. With cinnamon ice cream, with custard, with nothing but pie, with raisins…
    The smell of a fresh apple pie always lifts the mood and if not that, an apple crumble will certainly brighten the day!

  131. JulieM says:

    Although I like apple pie, I prefer an apple cobbler. So, of the two pies, I’ll go with pumpkin!

  132. hortihoney says:

    Pumpkin. With CoolWhip on top!

  133. Meg says:

    Again, not a fan of either choice. I think I’m Thanksgiving defective. If I have to choose one, I’ll go with pumpkin, which is actually awesome in cheesecake form. Cooked fruit reminds me of slugs. In my mouth.

    Love, love, love these kits!

  134. ashley says:

    Oh, I am all about the pumpkin pie! And pumpkin spice coffee, pumpkin beer… 🙂

  135. CaroleP (ohio) says:

    Apple Pie – I’ve stuffed with pumpkin for a while, but still like for Thanksgiving! Thanks for the chance to win!

  136. Temple Witch says:

    Oh sheesh, another tough one.

    I think I gotta say apple pie. I love all things pumpkin, but a good spiced apple pie with a nice crumbly top and sugar baked on so it’s sort of crunchy… delicious.

    Besides, gotta love any dessert that you can pair with cheese.

  137. danielle says:

    Neither one is my favorite – but it isnt Thanksgiving without pumpkin pie – and plenty of whip cream of course!

  138. Chels says:

    Apple pie with vanilla bean ice cream!

  139. Marianna says:

    We love either in this house year round!
