November Knits! (& giveaway)


I was honored when Kate and Courtney asked me to submit a design for their book, November Knits. I was at the tail end of my pregnancy and was a little worried about overloading myself, but I just couldn't say no! Somehow I was able to design Abilene, a cardigan in Quince & Co.'s Lark yarn, when my baby was just a few weeks old. The very talented knitter and designer Dawn Catanzaro knit the sample for me (thank you!). The cardigan has side shaping with lace cuffs and yoke--a slightly vintage look.

To celebrate this book and all the wonderful designs on its pages, I thought I'd host a little giveaway. To win a copy of November Knits leave a comment on this post.
