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?
