Why is today a good day, you ask? Because the special Gifts Issue of Knitcircus is out!
(I do not have an article in this issue because it is a special — my column will return with the next regular issue, the Winter Issue, due out November 1.)
The Gifts Issue is full of great stuff — book and yarn reviews, product recommendations, a lovely article about gift knitting, and an interview with Sally Melville. There are even some cookie recipes. And of course, the patterns!
There are some wonderful patterns in this issue and they all would make great knitted gifts. And some are really quick knits, so you can whip out a gift in no time. You can view all the patterns at the link above, and you can either buy single patterns or buy the whole pattern collection. The Organic Bath Set is a free pattern — you can download it from the magazine online.
Once again, Jaala Spiro, the very generous Editor-in-Chief of Knitcircus, has authorized me to do some giveaways! I have ten free pattern collections from the Gift Issue, and two free one-year subscriptions to give to WendyKnits readers.
To enter the drawing for one of these goodies, leave a comment to this blog post. As always, if you are unsure how to comment, check out my comment tutorial. Leave your comment by noon Eastern time on Sunday September 19, 2010. At that time I will awaken the Great and Mighty Random Number Generator and exhort it to choose winners at — you guessed it — random.
The Project at Hand
I am at the point on the back of my cardi where I can start the bind-offs for the armholes. Excitement abounds!
Thanks for all your great comments on this design. I’m so pleased you like it. I hope many of you will knit and enjoy it.
Lucy can’t come to the blog. She is involved in a stand-off with her fuzzy rat.
