Wicker Park Release!

This is a really fun knit. 

I tend to do a lot of stockinette stitch in my designs because my style is pretty "un-fussy" and I like focusing on nice lines and a good fit more than I enjoy working with intricate stitch patterns.  But sometimes it's great to mix it up a little and do something out of the ordinary.

This set combines 4 different stitch types - stockinette, ribbing, a "criss-crossed" woven stitch, and a "faux-color work" dimple stitch.  It'll keep you entertained, maybe teach you a new stitch or two, and you'll end up with a cozy winter set that I'm sure would be perfect for someone on your Christmas list!



Did someone say "give-away"?

Oh yeah!

One blog reader is going to win this pattern along with the yarn to make it.  You'll get these three skeins of Knit Picks Capretta in 'harbor' and 'platinum'.  I will ship it anywhere on Earth!

To enter, all you have to do is leave a comment after this post with a way for me to contact you (your Ravelry member name or sign in to the comments with your e-mail address or your personal website).  Remember, the comments are now "open" so if you don't want to "sign-in" you can just select the "Name/URL" option before you hit "Publish".  I'll leave this open through the weekend, then on Monday I'll do a random number generator to pick the winner.  If it selects number 5, then the 5th person in the comments will be the winner.  I'll contact you for your shipping address and get the yarn in the mail asap!

If you just can't wait, the pattern set is for sale on Ravelry and through my blog.  (You can go to the pattern page or click here:  )

If you happen to purchase the pattern before the contest winner is announced and you happen to win, I'll just refund your purchase through paypal and get your yarn on its way!
