Whew, we’ve almost made it to the end of the Olympic Giveaway! It’s been a lot of fun for me to get to know you all a little better, and I’ve got a good stack of stuff getting to some better homes, which is wonderful.
Today is another double giveaway, meaning there will be two winners of this beautiful book, which is Knitting Everyday Finery by Mel Clark. This book has such a great concept behind it: knit nice stuff and use it now. These projects are classic, relatively straightforward designs with a little twist that makes them extra-special, whether that’s the way a cable moves down a pair of mitts or the lace edging worked on a simple shawl. You’ll find patterns for all sorts of knit accessories here, as well as a woman’s cardigan and striped lounge shorts and a man’s vest.
I really love this book and there are a couple of things I’d love to make and use from its pages. This would also be a great book for those of you planning any gift knitting in the future, because accessories often don’t have to fit!
Again, I have two copies of this one to give away, so comment freely. Tell me your favorite thing you’ve knit that you actually use (or, if you don’t use it, why not?). My favorite I think I shared a few days ago, the Candle Flame Cowl. I also love the little Striped Baby Hat that was the first thing I knit for my daughter when she was in the hospital (she was born six weeks early but didn’t really have any health problems to show for it, other than being tiny). She’ll be three next month so no one uses it anymore, but it is in a shadowbox so I can remember how far we’ve come!
