Sundew

The winner of my review copy of  Coffeehouse Knits: Knitting Patterns and Essays With Robust Flavor by Kerry Bogert is Cheri A., who has been notified via email. Thanks to everyone who left a comment!

I did finish my Sundew Cardi a week ago.

I even wore it to work one day last week.

It’s been an odd week. Loki is exhausted.

Coffeehouse Knits

I have a new book to review:

This is Coffeehouse Knits: Knitting Patterns and Essays With Robust Flavor by Kerry Bogert, published by Interweave.

The book contains 20 patterns (you can see them on Ravelry here) that are a nice mix of sweaters and accessories. My faves:

This is the House Blend Cardigan by Hannah Baker, knit from The Yarn Collective Hudson Worsted. It is sized from 38″ – 58″ and looks like a nice cozy cardigan.

Steamed Mittens, by Emily Kintigh are worked from Berroco Ultra Alpaca, another worsted weight yarn. The pattern is sized for 4 different sizes.

The Gingersnap Pullover by Cheryl Toy, worked from Quince & Co. Chickadee (sportweight) is sized from 36″ to 56″.

In addition to the 20 patterns, the book includes a few essays about knitting and the knitting community.

All in all it is a pretty hardcover book with lovely photography and a nice range of projects in a good range of sizes.

Who’d like my review copy?
