The people have spoken! Last month I had a little poll where everyone could place their vote as to which of my four new garment patterns they wanted to knit up in the next knit-a-long.  The Haru pattern won by a landslide between all the blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Ravelry votes!

This convertible garment is a must have in every knitter’s wardrobe!  The unique construction and reversible stitch pattern allows for this piece to be worn many different ways…. so many I lose count.  Haru is knit in a silk ribbon for the body and a linen for the border and sleeve caps.  This is a perfect piece for the hotter months that are just around the corner.  And its sized from XS all the way through 5XL, no one is excluded from being allowed to make this piece.

Wont you join us???  Five lucky KAL participants will receive a prize at the end.  All you have to do is join!!!  We have already gotten started, but its not to late to join!  Please feel free to share your thoughts, ideas, yarn suggestions and questions in the group!  I hope to see you all there!

Well, I’m out of town yet again.  You know what that means… another giveaway! This time I’m away a little longer than usual, so instead of one week to enter, you’ll have two.  Lucky you!

What’s the prize? Glad you asked!  One very very lucky winner will receive the yarn and pattern to make one of my newer garment patterns, Silver Lining.  The winner will be able to choose to one of three colors of ShiBui Linen to make the Silver Lining pattern in the size of their choice (color choices coming soon).

Here’s how to enter, all you have to do is become a Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest follower.  I will choose one follower from only one of three social network (I’m not telling which one).  One lucky follower will be announced on Sunday, May 26th, 2013.  The winner must claim his/her prize by Sunday, June 2nd, 2013 or he/she will forfeit the prize and I will choose a new winner.  That means that even if you didn’t win, you might still have a chance.  So keep checking back!
