Joanne is the winner.
The office cleaning continues, so this week I have a couple of knitting reference goodies I’d love to send to a good home.
The first is Knit Simple Knitting Workshops, which was published as a special issue of the magazine back in 2011. It includes a glossary of knitting terms, a rundown of needed tools, how to cast on, knit and purl, make a chain, slip stitch, single, half-double and double crochet, work cables and more.
Included are more than 80 patterns including basic hats, mittens and socks for various sizes (as well as ideas for how to jazz them up), a basic triangular shawl and a bunch of other accessories (including crocheted flowers and jewelry and a hairpin lace wrap), an array of easy tops for women and kids and home accessories like pillows and afghans. Several of the patterns can be seen on Ravelry. I love that Incan Pullover!
The other item is a Knitting Pocket Reference published by Creative Knitting magazine. It includes charts on yarn weight, metric conversions, a place to inventory your knitting needles, measurement guidelines and standard sizes, and a few pages where you can detail a little bit of your stash and some projects you have knit. There’s a little section of knitting basics and a rundown of abbreviations as well.
One random winner will receive both of these handy items, and if you’d like it to be you, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, Jan. 22. I’d love to know if you have a favorite knitting magazine. I really love Knitscene because of its simple projects that are still trendy but wearable.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing and good luck!
