Brickhouse and SOLEmate Giveaway!

It's Friday, which means it's time for a NaBloPoMo giveaway... I am TOO excited about this one!!!   Are you in?  First get in the mood by clicking play below and then keep reading!
Last June Lorna's Laces was looking for patterns for their new yarn Solemate... I quickly suggested Brickhouse, one of my favorite patterns which I believe needed a little love!  Aren't they a perfect match?
Brickhouse in Solemate
This version is knit by Becca in Watercolor and Grant Park two colors that work SO well together!  Thanks Becca!  You did a beautiful job on it!

  8. I love Brick House and the rest of the 70's motown sound- those were great years & would love to knit this pattern and give Solemate a try. The following link has sole in it, but different.

  9. Great pattern!
    Not only is this a song with "sole" it is one of my all time favorite songs by Mark Knopfler. The song "A Quality Shoe" reminds me happy every time I hear it.

  11. My favorite song that has SOLE has to be Stevie Wonder's "Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours". If that song is playing, I'm singing along and dancing.

  14. When you ask for a song with "Soul", I had to post Let's Get It On, originally by Marvin Gaye, but this version is by Pentatonix an a capella group on the sing off!

  18. It's more R&B than funk, but Aretha's "Think" makes me want to have a chorus of backup singers while I preach the truth.

  33. I'm not sure why, but the Blues Brothers jumped into my head with "Soul Man" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2me1whctwc Might be because I live in Eugene, where "Animal House" was filmed and legend goes that Belushi had the idea for Blues Brothers after hanging out with a local musician, Curtis Salgado, while shooting that film. Or I might just be a bit out there today! :)

  34. What popped into my mind is the Stevie Wonder song Superstition.

    Haven't listened to that in ages and just realized I don't have any Stevie Wonder on my iPod. Must fix that.

  40. That shawl came out beautiful, a great pairing of yarn and pattern!
    I think all posts should have music :)

    Here's mine - Sting's Soul (Sole?) Cake
    It just touches my heart - and it's even appropriate for the season.

  49. I know it's a bit obscure, but Alan Vega, Every 1's a Winner is fun. Here's a Youtube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Bc7fwilIs0 but no video since the song is a bit old.

  51. Love the yarn/pattern combo... Scarf is gorgeous!

    You didn't say that the song had to be a "classic" so I went with Beyoncé--that girl has soul! The song is Love On Top.
