Giveaway: Knitcircus Gifts and a Perle Kit!

What a busy month y'all!  I've never blogged, knitted, and traveled so much!

Remember the other week when I posted about one of my newest designs, PerlĂ© in Knitcircus Gifts 2012?  Well, it's time to do a giveaway to celebrate it!  Knitcircus has generously offered FIVE pdf collections of their latest edition, and I have a skein of The Fibre Company's Road to China Light in Grey Pearl with scrumptious beads to match for one of the five winners as well. I affectionately refer to Road to China Light as crack, remember Cayden? If you've never knit with it, now is your chance to have a skein of your very own!

Perle, a beaded scarflette, is worked in two halves and kitchener stitched together. Beads are worked in two different ways on this pattern. The edge beads are prestrung and worked on the first knit stitch of each row. The interior beads are placed onto their stitches with a crochet hook or super floss. Video links are included in pattern to teach specific beading techniques! Confused by different beading techniques?  I did an accompanying article on beading in this issue as well.

So, who wants to win?  Leave a comment below by Tuesday November 1 at 12 noon EST... m'kay?
