Giveaway winner and a new pattern

Congratulations to Judy, the winner of the Knits That Breathe giveaway! I’ve contact Judy and will get her book to her shortly.

I’m also very excited about a new pattern of mine that has just been released as part of the WEBS 40th Anniversary celebration. It’s called the Maplewood Cardigan, and it’s intended to be an easy, comfortable layering piece. If you’re always warm, like me, you can wear it as a light layer in cooler weather; if you’re always cool, you’ll want to keep this cardi handy to add an extra bit of warmth over long sleeves. It’s knit in one of the special anniversary handdyed yarns, the WEBS base Northfield, beautifully dyed by Malabrigo. I love this base because it is plump and bouncy and soft and gorgeous.

The color I used is called Piedras, and it’s a lovely blend of browns, ranging from golden to taupe to rusty to slate, even a hint of lavender. The nice folks at WEBS knit a second version in their regular Northfield, and it looks great in solid colors, too:

This is a fun cardigan to knit: you start at the bottom lace edging, knitting in one piece, and once you’ve finished the edging, it’s easy going in stockinette. The front edging is knit as you go, and finishing is minimal.

There is plenty of Malabrigo-dyed Northfield in stock right now, but it’s a limited edition and won’t last for long. Thanks to everyone at WEBS for the opportunity to work with an amazing yarn!
