A Gradient Triplex!

Do you remember Triplex? Well one of my brilliant friends, Laurel, had the great idea to knit it in a gradient! She used a Wonderland Yarns Mad Hatter Mini-Skein Set paired with Fibre Company Road to China Light.... didn't it come out AMAZINGLY?

 I love when knitters get inspired by my patterns and search out the perfect yarns for them!


Time for a giveaway...

Wonderland Yarns generously offered up a Mad Hatter Mini-Skein Set in "Down the Rabbit Hole" with a matching skein of  Mad Hatter in "Tea Tray" to so you can knit up your own Triplex! How lucky are we? This would be a great project for someone to knit in the First Quarter KAL in my Ravelry group!

I'm off to Denver for the weekend for some "professional development". I'll be at Fancy Tiger hanging out with some of my buddies on Thursday night, so if you are in the area, stop by and say hi!


Just leave a comment below by 12pm (EST) on Monday Jan 25th. I will randomly choose a winner and announce them in next week's post! (A tutorial on auditioning yarn for the Novus Jacket!)
