She's done it again! I'm not sure how Carol Feller puts out so many designs, given her family and the amount of time I know she devotes to her kids. I am in awe. And not just a little jealous of her energy.
Her new booklet, entitled Scrumptious Knits, features seven new designs, all knit in Scrumptious yarns from Fyberspates: aran, dk, 4 ply, and chunky weights. Adorable Carol is on the cover, wearing her Ignus Cowl Neck Tunic.
I love the mix of projects she has here; there's something for everyone.
Of course I have my favorites. :) First, I am seriously looking forward to my first winter in the mountain climate here. I know. You are thinking I'd rather have California winters, right? But the truth is, dear readers, I hate rain. And it rained more than Portland in my last little town. Soggy mittens? No, thanks. Snowy mittens? Much better! So I am thinking I need a pair of Haruna Bobble Gloves.
I am looking forward to wearing some fun hand knits come cold weather. I think I'll get started on a little winter wardrobe now. (A girl can dream, can't she?)
I saved the best for second. I love love love this hoodie. Doesn't Carol look great in it?
The texture is what first caught my eye on Bakersville, and I am in love with the toggle closures. It also has just enough drape, thanks to the beautiful 55% merino/45% silk blend of the Scrumptious. I also like that it's knit in 4 ply weight (which is akin to a fingering weight here in the US); it's great for layering, spring, and fall. I am currently imagiknitting one for myself. In my imagination, I also look like Carol and have all her energy. If you're going to dream, you might as well dream big!
So. On to the give-away! Leave a comment on this post by Thursday, May 3, midnight PST, and I will enter you into a random drawing for a copy of this cool little booklet!
(A btw to Paula about small type size: I haven't changed the size of the font at all, but Blogger did come out with a new format. I am working on learning the ins and outs - this may be where the problem originates - but until I figure out how to hack this version of Blogger - or switch to WordPress! - you should be able to change the minimum type size shown in your browser so that you can read everything at the optimal size. HTH!) :)
