60 more quick knits... just in time.

I love these books so, so much. 60 patterns. All made with the same yarn. How much better can it get.
Just in time for gift giving.
I almost slapped a post-it note on each and every page. That's how much I loved each and every pattern.
Scarves. Cable, lace, color work. I really love that one up there... knit in a tube. (There is a beautiful fair isle tube scarf, too.) I wish I would have taken a photo of the double knit checkerboard scarf and the basketweave pocket scarf. (SO many beautiful scarves.)
And those wave-cuff mittens up there... L O V E. The lacy cuff is knit separately and attached later. And then, buttoned closed! (You know how I love to pick out the perfect button.)
The colorblock cap. This one totally caught my eye. It is worked section by section with short rows and pieced together. The rib band added last.
Who doesn't love an ear flap hat for those super cold days. Love the colors they chose for this one.
The convertible mitten-gloves. I've made fingerless mittens... but never gloves. Would love to give it a try. And those stripes are just too cute.
Bobbled gauntlets? Yes, please. Adore those!

I have one book to give away. If interested, please leave a comment between now and Friday the 18th at 5 p.m. EST. I will have the random generator choose a name.

I have the first book and love it. Such an easy way to find something to knit knowing you already have what you'll need, and guaranteed to like it to boot! Really excited about this one. It's on my xmas list, but it wouldn't hurt to win one! Thanks for the sneal peek!

kateebee said...

Leaving my comment so that I can play. It's time to seriously get to the Christmas knitting. And the best part of it is giving the "certificate" to them and letting them pick the item and colour. That takes care of the January knitting.

Andrea said...

This would make for perfect Christmas gift knitting!
