Ellen is our winner!
I don’t quite want to admit how quickly the weather will likely start to turn cool again. I’m still working on projects I hope to have done in time to wear this summer, but I know it’s time to start thinking about fall and winter knitting, too.
So it’s the perfect time to talk about Heather Walpole’s fun book, Scarves in the Round. The book includes 25 patterns for cowls, tube scarves, neck warmers and ponchos, all worked in the round with circular knitting needles. There’s a lot of Stockinette Stitch (and some really lovely yarns) here, as well as projects that use lace, cables, colorwork and bobbles.
It’s a great beginner’s guide to working in the round, but also has projects that knitters with some experience with circular knitting (and the other techniques involved) are sure to enjoy, too. And there are projects that span the seasons, from some that would be perfectly appropriate on cool summer nights to those that are great for the dead of winter.
If you’d like a chance to win this book (American readers only, please!), leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, August 9. I’d love to know what you like to knit in the round, if that’s a technique you’ve used before. I like it for just about anything, from sweaters to socks to cowls.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and good luck!
