Fall With Sweet Georgia Contest!
A few weeks ago I was thrilled to announce my inclusion as a designer in the collection ‘Fall With Sweet Georgia 2015’ for my pattern, the ‘Siesta’ cowl. It was such an amazing experience, I’m not afraid to tell you that I literally embarrassed all my friends by doing a happy dance in a parking lot when I got the email letting me know that my pattern had been chosen :)
Today I want to focus on some of the other, absolutely stunning patterns in the collection. I want to get knitting, and it’s super had to choose! One of these will definitely come along as my honeymoon knitting project, the question is, which one? Let’s see….
First off, here’s the release post and Lookbook. Absolutely a must-see – check it out!
Here are my faves:
I LOVE the shape. I love how it looks like it sits on the shoulders and does. not. budge. That lace! DK weight lace! *swoon*.
A little too complicated for vacation knitting though, so next up is ‘Aine’ by Linda Marveng. How comfortable does this look? And, be still my beating heart, the cables are REVERSIBLE. That one detail alone is enough to make me want to sequester myself with tea and knitting for a few days. Yes, this is definitely my lead contender.
This one is *probably* too ambitious for vacation knitting, but then there’s all that time in airport where you can use something a little spicier to work on, so who knows? And just look at that texture… this is ‘Vineyard’ by Klever Knits. I’m not usually a purple person, but even the colour of this knit kills me.
And finally, the ‘Waggle Hat and Mittens‘ by Yvette Noel, and not only because the name is awesome. Toronto got super chilly this week, and the first place I always feel it is in my hands! I’m sure by the time we come home it will be that much chiller, perhaps the prudent thing is to come home with smooshy new mittens?
So what do you guys think? Check out the rest of the collection on Ravelry here and leave a note in the comments telling me what I should take on vacation!
