Joy is the winner of these.
I have to tell you that I really love these books. There are so many great patterns in them, and good inspiration for making your knitting more colorful.
But I’ve had them on my shelf all these years and have never managed to knit a project from them, so I want to pass them on to someone who will use them!
Color Style by Pam Allen and Ann Budd has 17 designs (see on Ravelry) for sweaters, socks, gloves, a bag, a hat/scarf and a pillow. I love the Retro-Andean Pullover and the Honeycomb Pullover on the front, just to name a couple.
And Fair Isle Style by Mary Jane Mucklestone has 20 patterns (again on Ravelry) that focus in particular on stranded knitting with a modern flair. Here I love the circular-yoked Bressay Dress, the sweet Peerie Weerie Booties and again the sweater on the cover is pretty amazing.
In addition to the patterns, both books have a design notebook that offers tips, techniques and ideas for embellishment to make projects your own.
One winner will get both books this week.
If you’d like a chance to win, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, Feb. 26. I’d love to know what your favorite colorwork technique is. Mine is probably stranded knitting, but honestly I knit stripes the most often.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing, and good luck!
