A little knitting giveaway

Or, my disorganization is your gain!

I did a little impulse buying while I was at Joann’s the other day–I thought I had a zipper for my first project for the Doctor Who Sewalong already, but it was completely the wrong shade, and I had nothing on hand that would work, so I had to go. And I bought two knitting magazines while I was there, because apparently I’m addicted to hoarding certain knitting magazines. Particularly ones inspired by things I get all geeky about (Jane Austen, I’m looking at you), and KnitScene. So I bought the most recent KnitScene they had, along with a Harry Potter-inspired one…only to get home and discover that I’d already bought that KnitScene a couple of months ago. I got all confused because the patterns for the newest one are already listed on Ravelry, and I’m way behind on updating my library/yarn stash on there. Oops. So rather than go through the hassle of trying to return the magazine, which I’m not totally sure I’m allowed to do anyway, I figured I’d pass it along to one of you lovely readers!

Here’s a sample of the patterns in there that I’m eyeing:

1. The Rosemary Cardigan. Nice shape, those pockets are just cute, and I pretty much automatically like any food that has rosemary in it (yum), so why not incorporate it into my crafting as well?

2. The Praline Pullover is just really sweet. And I think it might be a good use of the hemp yarn I already had for a fail project that I frogged awhile back.

In the realm of accessories, the Gallarate beret and mitts are pretty cute. You know me, I like to be all matchy-matchy with my accessories!

You can see the rest of the patterns on Ravelry. If you’re interested in taking this magazine off my hands, just leave a comment and tell me which pattern in here you’d be most excited to make. I’ll leave the giveaway open until November 18.

Speaking of knitting, I do actually have a small finished project to show–I just haven’t been able to take any pictures yet. And I’ve been sewing away on my DW project, too, with what limited time I actually had at home last week. So hopefully I’ll have fun things to post soon!

  1. I think the beret would look fabulous on my DGD, and l'd love to give it a whirl. thanks for the opportunity to throw my name i the hate for a giveaway. I've done the same before–bought when I had one already–it just happens sometimes!

  2. As of yet, I do not think I have the skills to make a sweater- I do have several pairs of knitting needles and some beautiful hunter green yarn an hope to start my first project this winter. I hope to some day be able to whip up something like that Praline Pullover- so cute! ~Laurie

  3. Those look like beautiful knits! I'm tempted by the Rosemary cardigan, it looks chunky enough to maybe not take ages to knit, and very cozy! I also like the Impression Vest a lot. And the Praline pullover. Ah, lotsa cute knits! I may need to buy that one if I don't win… 🙂

  4. I am such a new knitter that I don't think any of these patterns would be happy in my home. Love them all, and will get to that level someday!! I'm still working on a scarf.
