I’m the winner of some delicious Blue Sky Alpacas Melange 100% baby alpaca yarn, and a copy of winter Interweave Knits, courtesy of Allison Haas, aka Alaskan Purl! Her design for her offset cable mittens is in this issue, and she is celebrating with a giveaway.
The mittens are super cute, and begin at the tip with Judy’s Magic Cast On, instead of at the cuff. Clever!
The yarn photographs as brown, no matter how I set my white balance. It’s really more of a mustardy greenish yellow. It’s exquisitely soft.
You can see in the last picture that it’s really much more complex. There are shades of green, yellow, and even red in the mix.
Allison has a winner with this pattern. Check out her blog at Alaskan Purl Designs. Thanks, Allison!
And…because I already have a copy of this issue of Interweave Knits, I’ll give away this copy to a randomly selected commenter. Leave your comment below. Contest closes at midnight on Wednesday (tomorrow).
PS: Does this mean I’m acquiring a stash? Yikes! To de-stash a little, I’ll also include this skein of ridiculously sunny Malabrigo Worsted. I used it for my relentlessly cheery bedsocks. 40 stitches around makes a quick knit!
The first picture is truer in color than the picture of the socks. Want to knit with a smile? Comment below. Good luck!
