Debbie who wrote, "I love them all, but if I had to pick just one, it would be the variegated so I would get to see them all! Also love the Tranquil waters but like I said at first, all are beautiful because I just love hand-dyed!"
Congratulations! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to collect your prizes.
Today I have a great interview with one of my most favorite knitwear designers, Melissa LaBarre, to share with you. She is the designer and co-author of the new and popular New England Knits book that came out this past summer.
I got the opportunity to knit one of her most popular hat patterns, crooked paths, a few months ago and I loved the pattern so much, I had to knit it up again shortly after the first beret.
I love this pattern so much, I'm going to knit it up again sometime in the very near future! I have a lovely skein of Madelinetosh in a really bright red that will look amazing knitted up into my THIRD crooked paths beret!
