Congrats to our winner Chantel!
I’m sure it has something to do with the cold, but I have been reading a lot of books lately about knitting in northern Europe. Up there they know how to keep warm and they know that winter accessories ought to be stylish and pretty, because it’s the only thing people can see when you’re bundled up outside.
This week I happen to have two books inspired by that part of the world. (They will go to one winner.)
The first is Nordic Knitting Traditions by Susan Anderson-Freed, a book of 25 accessory patterns inspired by the designs of Scandinavia, Iceland and Fair Isle. This one is full of hats, mittens, gloves, socks and leg warmers that will keep you warm and colorful all winter long.
The second is Knit Nordic by Eline Oftedal, a collection of home and accessory patterns inspired by four classic Norwegian sweater patterns. Here you can knit a classic sweater for a coffee pot or a mug, make a bag with traditional flair or stitch up pillows with panels of traditional motifs.
These books are both lots of fun and are sure to bring a little bit of color to the lingering days of winter.
For your chance to win these books, leave a comment on this post before the end of the day Sunday, Feb. 23. I don’t have a good knitting-related question in mind, so why don’t you tell me if you’re watching the Olympics, or what your favorite winter sport is. (I haven’t watched a second of it yet and I’m not sure I’m going to, which is more about being busy than anything else.)
One winner will take home both books. Thanks for visiting and good luck!
