Today is super exciting because I am hosting my first giveaway, and no less, with a blogger/designer I admire very much. If you have browsed the popular patterns on Ravelry within the last few weeks, you’ve probably noticed many of these lovely designs popping up. If not, I am happy to introduce you to the literary-inspired brainchild of Audry Nicklin: Lit Knits!
I love the concept of the book… what better place to draw inspiration than from books filled with imaginary worlds and adventures? I’m happy to share with you some of my favorites!
Oh, how I love Deep Sea Wanderer inspired by 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea! Bobbled rivets and oceanic waves… so beautiful. A perfect excuse to buy some Madtosh DK. ;)
I love the earthy tree-root cables all over Robin Hoodie. Though it’s styled for fellas, the smallest size is a 36″ bust, so I may just be making this one for myself!
Down The Rabbit Hole is laced with so much detail – from the pocket-watch (I adore that it’s “hidden” in the palm), to the rabbit, to the checkerboard patterning. What a lovely gift these would be for an Alice fan. In fact, I think any of these knits would be a beautiful gift paired with a fancy hard-bound edition of the book.
Of course I’m going to talk about the socks… there are two pairs in the e-book but I found the horseshoe motif of Black Beauty Rides On so endearing. I have family members who own/love horses, it makes me think of them. :)
So Audry was awesome enough to offer a free copy of her beautiful e-book to one of you lucky folks! All you have to do is take a peek at the gorgeous patterns (see them all here or here on Ravelry) and leave a comment below telling me your favorite pattern from Audry’s collection… and be sure to leave an email address or your Ravelry ID so I can put you in touch with Audry to claim your prize! I will close the contest at noon central time Friday, September 20th, and announce the winner shortly after. Yay!
If a hard copy book is more your style, there is a print version available too for pre-order. The pre-order ends September 25, and if you order before then, you’ll also get the e-book for free (awesome)!
*Remember, only one comment per person, extras will be deleted! Thanks!*
Good luck everyone!!
