Scrumptious Knits: A Review and Giveaway!

Welcome... to the next stop on the Scrumptious Knits blog tour and I'm thrilled to share this book with you!  Earlier this winter Carol Feller self-published a lovely booklet in cooperation with Fyberspates Yarn entitled Scrumptious Knits... have you seen it?
Scrumptious Knits is a striking collection of 7 patterns.  It contains 3 garments and 4 accessories, all knit from Fyberspates Scrumptious yarn in a range of weights from lace weight all the way up to chunky. The patterns are available individually or as a pdf booklet through Carol's site, and it are also available in a printed book through Fyperspates.  Carol and her husband work together on the photography, I love the style that they have developed together.  I first became aware of their dynamic when I saw Carol's first book, Contemporary Irish Knits... how great to have your photographer live at home with you!
If I had all the time in the world (and more hands!) I'd be knitting the sweater from the cover Ignus... I love belted sweater tunics with skirts in the winter and I think Ignus would be stunning styled this way.
Another design I adore is the Haruna Hat... I'm pretty smitten with cloche style hats, and the shaping and detail on this design is stunning! 
See the delicate detailing on the top?  LOVE IT!

So, I bet you want to know about this giveaway, right?  Well, Carol has offered to giveaway a pdf version of Scrumptious Knits AND Fyberspates is offering up a skein of Scrumptious DK in plum to knit your very own Haruni, how generous is that?
To Enter:  Leave a comment below... I'd love to hear which design in the book you love!  Don't forget, I'll need a way to get in touch with you if you win!  Comments will be open until April 30 at 12 EST.

    It is hard to pick just one ,but if I had to choose I think it would be either the Flama shawl such a graceful drape or Taupo just love how this is constructed! Charlene

    I love Ignus but my favorite has to be the Haruna set - the gloves as well as the hat. Beautiful details and SUCH a gorgeous color!

  3. I am in love with the Taupo pattern. It is very "me" and I think I would love knitting and wearing it. I would make ALL of the patterns in this collection, though!

  4. I think my favorites are Bakersville and the Flama shawl. Both have such great details that I find myself drawn to these days.

  11. Just one?!? I absolutely love Scrumptious Knits!

    Flama is so simple & elegant. Haruna would be my go-to hat on cold wet mornings. Tuapo would be so fun to knit & would get worn more, given our very short winters. Bakersville is so elegant for a hoodie! But my love lies with Ignus.

  29. Hi Laura. I love the Scrupmtious yarn and in fact am knitting a shawl with the fingering weight as we speak. The book looks lovely - I especially like Flama - being a lace shawl which can incorporate beads! Thanks for the giveaway. C

  37. My favourite is Ignus - I love the shaping of it, the way the cable works its way up, twists and gives the sweater/tunic a unique look. Love to knit - seems my list is getting longer and longer! (Nadine / Kizuta on Ravelry)

  38. The Ignus is fabulous!! I'll have to add that to my queue and make it soon. :D

  41. Bakersville or Ignus are both great and make it hard for me to decide which I like more. Think I'd make Bakersville first.

  53. Would love to have a copy of the book.

  54. I think I would have to make Ignus... it looks comfortable, and it buttons up. The yarn looks so wonderful as well, soft, lush, warm, not scratchy at all.

  55. If I had to choose just one it would be the Flama shawl.

  73. That hat is just lovely! I am definitely an accessory knitter these days. I never have time to knit sweaters or larger items. But, this hat could definitely jump to the front of my queue!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. My favourite is the Bakersville hoodie, it looks light and snuggly at the same time. I really want to start knitting my own sweaters and cardigans rather than buying them.

  90. I'm partial to the Haruna Hat...although...I would love to knit every single item in this collection

    ReplyDelete
  91. Bakersville is my favorite. I love hoodies, and the diagonal ribbing detail dresses it up without making it something you can't wear with whatever you want. And, since taking your Knitting With Beads class every time I look at a pattern, I end up trying to find ways to slap some beads on it. I think this one would look really nice with a few silvery beads thrown on the cuffs and maybe the hood. acidreigndropp@gmail.com
