Peek at a future design...

As promised in an earlier post this week, I would like to share a little peek at the design I will be contributing to the Midwestern Knits book, scheduled to be published in August 2015.  

Inspired by one of my favorite, picturesque sites on the shores of Lake Michigan, Cave Point, is a two color lace weight hat, featuring a sand-like texture along side a lace wave motif.  

I was also given the opportunity to use my own hand dyed yarn from Front Porch Fibers, and thought "Glacier" and "Business Casual"  captured the lakeshore feel perfectly.  

So, if you are excited about this design, and the prospect of this book, but haven't visited the Midwestern Knits Kickstarter page yet to choose one of the great incentive packages, I urge you to do so.......if we don't reach our goal, this book will only be a dream.

I contributed several more prizes this week too, including the Brew City Knits, Paper Lanterns, and Happy Trails ebooks, as well as a Tupelo Slouch Kit (a copy of the pattern and a skein of Malabrigo Merino Worsted in the gorgeous Chapel Stone colorway).  

Thanks for peeking at my design and for considering heading over and claiming one of the cool knitting prizes as your own!  There are some great kits left from both Carina Spencer and Allyson Dykhuizen, and lots of other goodies!

 

Oh....and Front Porch Knitting now has a Facebook page, if you'd like to follow us there.  Of course we will share any special deals, projects from fellow knitters and any other knitting news from our friends in the fiber world.
