Howdy Y'all! Guess what? It's time for a giveaway, and this is one I am REALLY excited for!!!
I've been anxiously awaiting the release of Hunter Hammersen's first book, Silk Road Socks. I've had the honor to work with Hunter on two sock designs she did for Schaefer Yarn and LOVE her sock aesthetic and pattern writing skills. Hunter paired herself with Cooperative Press (KnitGrrl's new publishing company) and together they released a book that is cohesive, well written, organized and freakin' GORGEOUS... just look:
Cooperative Press and Schaefer Yarn have graciously agreed to give away one electronic copy of Silk Road Socks along with a skein of Schaefer Yarn Nichole in Chamomile (the exact yarn used to knit Khotan, above) to the lucky winner! Just leave a comment by Sunday Feb 6th (at midnight) sharing with us all why you love to knit socks! If you link, tweet, ravelry, or facebook the giveaway I'll enter you twice, just let me know you did.... please remember to leave your contact info!
I leave you with a blurb from the back cover of Silk Road Socks:
If you’ve ever dreamed of being whisked away on a magic carpet to a land where you could knit stunningly beautiful socks all day…well, we can’t quite make that dream come true. But we can supply you with sock patterns to knit if you ever do get there!
