My dearest knitting friends,
I'm in Mexico! So, please don't be mad if I cut this post a little short. My husband and I are here for two of our closest friends who are tying the knot on the beaches of Mexico in just a few days. I'm enjoying myself immensely, but of course I couldn't forget my faithful YOTH followers!
Even though I'm away in paradise, I still have a fun giveaway to share with you this week. About a month ago, I had the opportunity to do another sample knit for Alana of Never Not Knitting. This time I got to knit up her beautiful new pattern, Shawl Collared Cowl. This neat lil' cowl was such a quick knit and super soft and fuzzy in the Misti Alpaca Chunky yarn. I'm not sure whether this pattern is classified as unisex, but in my opinion, my brother looked just as good in this cowl as I did when we tried it on!
What do you think?
Wouldn't this cowl make the perfect gift for at least half the people on your gift list this holiday season?! It would for me! Also, it was mentioned in the NNK Rav Group recently that this cowl can also be knit in one skein of Knit Picks City Tweed HW. That makes the project even more affordable.
In exchange for the sample knit, Alana sent over enough yarn to knit up another cowl in the luxurious alpaca yarn. Guess who I pass that along to?! YOU of course! So, one follower has the opportunity to win two skeins of Misti Alpaca Chunky in a beautiful rust brown color and a pretty printed copy of the Shawl Collared Cowl pattern.
Also, two runners up have the opportunity to win the PDF copy of the pattern as well.
