It’s my favorite day of the month! Drawing Day!
Last week (OK, last Monday and the Friday before that) I posted not one but two giveaways of KnitPick’s newest pattern collections, On the Go Knits and Knits for Everybody. Quite a few of you entered the giveaway, and now it’s time for the drawing.
First off, On the Go Knits!Let’s head over to Random.org for a random drawing….And, number 9 wins it! Amanda! That’s you! Woo!
And now over to Knits for Everybody. (This is too exciting- two drawings, in one day! Unheard of!)And the random number generator says:Commenter number 3! You’re the big winner! Audrey, that’s you!
I’ll be emailing you two today so we can arrange getting your books to you. If you don’t see my email, let me know (sometimes they end up in the spam folder).
Congrats ladies! And if you weren’t the lucky one this time, head on over to KnitPicks and pick up copies of the books for yourself (they’re really great- and on sale right now!).
Guys! I’ve got two (count ’em, two!) new patterns in Knit Picks’ new pattern book, On the Go Knits. It’s a collection of projects perfect for running/hiking/working in the garden. Everything is worked in high-contrast colors of machine-washable yarn. This book is full of some really pretty (and practical) patterns, and I know I’ll be knitting up a few of them.The best part? I’ve got two hats in this collection!
The Collapsible Cap is a super comfy beanie, worked with wide ribbing all the way up to the crown. It’s worked in super-soft Swish Worsted, which might be my favorite kind of yarn for hats. And, because of all the ribbing, it fits just about anyone. And, when you take it off it collapses in on itself, making it perfect for stashing in your pocket when it gets too warm. (My husband and I fight over the Collapsible Cap I made him. It’s really great.)My other pattern is one I’m really proud of- It’s the Pocket Hat. (OK, I didn’t do a great job naming this one, but the hat itself is great.)
From the outside, the hat is a cute two-tone cap knit in sock-weight yarn with a wide ribbed band and a little section of color work around the middle. Cute, right?But, look inside, and you’ll find a secret pocket! Fastened with a button, it’s the perfect hiding spot for a few bucks (so you can stop by the coffee shop on your way back from your run), your drivers license (just in case), or your a key (so you can get back into your house).I’m so happy with these patterns, and I know you will be, too!
Want to win a copy of On the Go Knits? Comment below with the activity you’d do while wearing something from this collection! Would you go running with the In Motion Vest? Take a hike with the Arrow Gloves? Practice yoga with the Yogini Socks? Inquiring minds need to know!
(Also- More exciting news is on its way! So come back on Monday!)
