tuscan knitsThis pattern collection from Kennita Tully is a great choice for spring. Tuscan Knits features seven patterns — two tops, two vests, two cardigans and a shawl — inspired by the beauty of Italy and the yarns of Tahki. The patterns use a lot of lace and openwork, which makes them breathable and perfect for the ever-changing weather at this time of year.

They use pretty simple shapes and let the yarn really show itself off, which is nice. I think my favorite is Firenze, a lacy cardigan worked in a fun thick and thin yarn that ends up with a really interesting texture. I also like Lucente, a mesh top that’s a great way to jazz up an otherwise simple outfit. You can check out all the projects on Ravelry.

The ebook retails for $15.95 but I’ve got a free digital copy to give away. For your chance to win, leave a comment on this post by the end of the day next Sunday, April 27. Why don’t you tell me what the weather is like and where you are right now? In Arkansas as I type this it is rainy and 64 degrees. Not too shabby.

Thanks for visiting, commenting and sharing. Good luck!

    I’m in Brussels, Belgium and the beginning of the day was gorgeous, sunny with highs in the 60s… and then the clouds rolled in and brought rain!

  2. Becky on April 21, 2014 5:03 pm

    Right now? Cloudy but in the 70′s. I’ll take it! (I’m mentally ignoring tomorrow’s forecast: stormy and low 50′s. Ick.)

  3. Heidi K. on April 21, 2014 6:20 pm

  6. G.K. Gree on April 21, 2014 7:27 pm

    I’m in Phoenix, AZ, where it’s 4:20 pm and 96 degrees Fahrenheit … and it feels like it. (We only have about 10% humidity here; they say it’s a dry heat, and it’s actually true. I love it!) The sun sets around 7 pm, and by midnight the temperature should drop to around 70 degrees, just in case anyone’s curious … Thanks for another great giveaway!

  28. Barbara on April 22, 2014 12:18 pm

    In Orange Co CA it has, in general, been unseasonably warm/hot this winter and a drought. Yesterday the 21st started out cool and really foggy which cleared and probably near 80. Sounds nice, right just send us some of that rain.

  29. Cynthia Wilbanks on April 22, 2014 12:36 pm

    Right now I am in Atlanta, Georgia, sitting at Children’s Hospital with my daughter, son-in-law and 5 year-old grandson who just had open-heart surgery yesterday. He is doing wonderful! May even go home Thursday!!!! The weather is very hot here (which I hate), makes me long for Minnesota again.

    Hi, I’m in Adelaide, South Australia, it will warm up a bit as the day progresses, but it’s currently 46F (8 C) this morning. Nice autumn weather. Great for knitting, even enough time to knit a lovely item from this book for summer.

  37. Diana on April 22, 2014 9:21 pm

    Here in Atlanta, it’s nice and warm though we had showers today. All the flowers are in bloom!

  40. Judy Cornell on April 23, 2014 7:51 am

  41. TAnk on April 23, 2014 9:58 am

    It is cool and rainy in Ithaca NY, the very definition of “ithacating,” if you will. Apparently I will have to insist on spring via warm weather knits!

  42. Marilyn on April 23, 2014 10:51 am

    Near Detroit it cool, in the 50s. Should be sunny this afternoon. I put out a basket of petunias. Too soon, I think. It’s supposed to drop to 35 degrees later this week.

  43. Miriam Olsen on April 23, 2014 2:42 pm
