Brave New Knits Drawing Giveaway


I have a new giveaway for you to enter!

Brave New Knits Drawing Giveaway

In episode 44 of the Never Not Knitting podcast I had the privilege of interviewing Julie Turjoman, the author of Brave New Knits. Julie's publisher, Rodale Books, was kind enough to provide a copy of the book for me to give away to one of you!

In addition to the book, the winner will receive a skein of Malabrigo Sock yarn in the eggplant colorway kindly provided by Sandrasingh.com. This is the yarn and colorway called for in the book's  

Isn't this pattern gorgeous? And it only takes one skein!
It was hard to capture the gorgeous color of this yarn with the camera. It is a lovely deep dusky purple.

Be sure to listen to episode 44 to learn more about Brave New Knits. Also, don't forget to visit Sandrasingh.com. You can get 10% off of all yarns, magazines and needles through December 15th! 
Enter code "NNK01" at checkout.

Orchid Thief Shawlette

To enter to win, please leave a comment (only one!) including your contact information under this post.
I will be announcing the winner here December 1, so please check back to see if you have won!


Drawing Now Closed! Congratulations to Judi A, the winner!

I have always loved to eat eggplant, but I think to knit with an eggplant colored yarn would be even more delicious!

I don't know if I'd ever get the nerve to try it, but Orchid Thief was my favorite pattern in the book. The book is on my xmas list, but I'll happily take it off if I win! :)

Well, my chances of winning are slim, but I can always hope. I was a Malabrigo virgin until recently, and after having touched the worsted now, I am interested in knitting with other Malabrigo. Let's see if fate smiles upon me!
