Congratulations to Sheila!
This time of year is perfect for knitting and wearing wraps, shawls, shrugs and the like. They usually aren’t very big or heavy projects, which makes them good for travel and knitting places where it might be warm.
They’re also great to use this time of year because you never know when you might need a wrap to throw on in a cold restaurant or car.
This week I’m giving away a set of two shawl knitting books by Sheryl Thies. Nature’s Wrapture and Knitting by Nature are full of patterns inspired by that natural world and using an array of knitting techniques including lace, textured stitches, short rows, cables and bobbles.
In all there are 39 patterns in these books, so there’s sure to be something you’ll like for yourself or as a gift for someone cold-natured on your list.
For a chance to win, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, June 1. I’ll pick a winner at random.
Why don’t you tell me if you’re always hot or always cold, or if you’re one of the lucky ones who falls somewhere in between. You can probably guess from this post that I’m in the always cold camp.
Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing. Good luck!
