Kitten With a Whiplash
The winner of the TFA Four Seasons Hat e-book and I Heart Aran sweater pattern is:
Congratulations! Please contact me at email@example.com to collect your prizes.
I hope everyone is having a nice summer! Here in the Seattle area, we haven't been getting much sunshine and have had plenty of gray skies and rain. That's given me the opportunity to knit quite a bit, but it would be nice if you folks in the heat waves could send us some sun rays. Whenever you get a chance!
Today I want to share a lovely sweater pattern with you - just in case you want to start queuing up your fall and winter knits. This beautiful design has classic styling with a touch of femininity to give it just enough appeal. I'm planning to wear mine with leggings, jeans, trousers, cords, and really just about every pair of pants I own.

This pattern was so quick to knit and it's bottom up seamless construction is just my favorite! This cardigan is the perfect compliment to any practical girl's wardrobe, in my opinion. Dress it up or dress it down, either way this thing will make everyone around you ask where you got it. I've worn mine only once so far, but I got so many compliments I lost count! Check out more of Kate's work on her website here.
Along with this week's wonderful sweater pattern giveaway we have one of my favorite tried-and-true yarn companies: Madelinetosh as our sponsor. If you haven't seen or at least heard of Madelinetosh yarns, where have you been?! They carry a large selection of hand dyed yarns. The colors that Madelinetosh produces are truly stunning and I've heard of them referred to as "glazed" colorways. Somehow that word just describes the layering and depths of the hues perfectly. The yarns seem to have an iridescence to them. It's really amazing!
So, to make this the perfect bundle of joy, ONE VERY, VERY, VERY LUCKY WINNER will receive a PDF copy of the Gramps Cardigan and EIGHT SKEINS of Madelinetosh Vintage in one of the most gorgeous reds I've ever witnessed: Tart. What a perfect name for a colorway too!
That's enough yarn to knit up to an XL Gramps of your very own! In addition to the grand prize, two runners up will also receive a PDF copy of the Gramps Cardigan.
I would like you to do the following if you would like to be entered into this week's giveaway:
1. Read over the rules if you have not done so already.
2. Leave a comment on this blog post by the end of Sunday, 7/31/11. What has everyone been knitting in the summer heat or rain, in our case?! I've been on a sweater kick lately in addition to all the shawls I'm knitting. Do you have any fun sweater projects lined up for fall and winter?
I'll randomly pick the winners in 2 weeks and post the results along with the new giveaway, so be sure to check back. Good luck everyone.
