60 quick luxury knits

Thursday, November 06, 2014

I have been meaning on hosting a couple of giveaways but haven't had an opportunity with the changes in our lives... until now.  
 I'm sure you have seen this book floating around.  I'm pretty sure it was released back in August.  60 easy, elegant designs for a wide range of accessories.
 All patterns in the book use Cascade yarns.  So, if you are one of those who also love Cascade, you probably have bits in your stash to make many of these.
 My eye was drawn to many of the fair isle patterns.  There are mitts.
 Yummy cowls.  I especially love this reversible one.
 I thought this stitch pattern and chunkiness was interesting.
Mittens,  I'm a big fan.  I like all my fingers hanging out in one spot keeping each other company.  I love this extra long pair.
There are many other designs including shawls, mittens,  hats, belt, a fringed handbag and more.

It's a great time for a book filled with projects like these.  Just in time for holiday gift giving!

The nice peeps at Sterling would like to give one of my readers a copy of 60 Quick Luxury knits.  If interested, please leave a comment here before Monday at 5pm EST and I'll have the random number generator choose a number.
