another one

It's been warm around here. Mid to high 80's. No complaints.
Still, I knit away with lovely yarn while sitting at the pool. I started another slouchy cardigan. A.) Because I LOVE that sweater. (I think it has been my all time favorite sweater that has gotten the most wear of anything that I have ever knit.)
B.) Because I had some charmed in my stash that I scored on sale while it was being discontinued. (Why oh why would they discontinue this lovely yarn?) I actually saw that someone over on Ravelry had 11 balls in their stash. Definitely enough to make a slouchy.
Have you seen Vogue Knitting Stitchionary 5? The 5th in the series that is an amazing reference that would benefit every knitters library, lace knitter or not. It is full of clear instructions and charts of over 150 different designs. I sort of got lost in the photographs. They are absolutely gorgeous. I just love this book sitting on the coffee table.
Anyhow, I have one to giveaway. If you are interested, leave me a comment by Saturday the 26th at 12p.m. EST and I will draw a name.

heldin im chaos said...

Thank you for the give-away! That book would be so welcome in my home! I may have to get started knitting a slouchy cardigan at some point, too. It looks like the perfect grab for a sunny but cold day around here.

kim said...

Oh I would LOVE the lace stitchionary. I have two of the other volumes and you're right- they are beautiful books!

Angela said...

That yarn looks lovely ... there are often yarns that are discontinued and I wonder why. Love the cardi, added it to my Rav queue!

MadMad said...

Can't wait to see it! I, on the other hand, have done zero knitting today. Would you like to know why? We adopted two kitties. Yes, two. They already have nicknames: Impulse and Regret. They are very freakin' cute, I have to say. But the dog is sooooo not happy. So I have to pretend I like him all day long, which doesn't free up enough hands for knitting. It's making me very, very cranky. (-er.)

Tracey said...

The slouchy cardigan looks so nice!! I think I'd like to knit that for myself one day...thanks for another great giveaway. I hope I win!

I am wishing I had your warm weather. I'm afraid it is 100 degrees in Texas and will not change for at least three more months.
