Knit to Flatter Winner!
Hi All! Things have been busy between the Frambuesa release and attending Maryland Sheep and Wool for the first time, but now that the bustle is dying down, I have a winner for the Knit to Flatter contest - Kristin EM! I have contacted Kristin via e-mail, and await her response. Kristin, if you have not received an e-mail from me, please check your spam folder. Thanks so much to everyone for participating. It sounds like this is a book that would benefit a lot of people out there. I highly recommend it, and I love the craftsy course as well. They are good companion pieces. I feel like the course has very detailed information and the advantage of showing Amy in person going through the steps with you, whereas the book covers the highlights of knitting to flatter and also includes many lovely patterns that you can modify. My own patterns can be challenging to modify because of the intense patterning going on in many of them, but the cardigan that I am currently working on (due for release at TNNA in late June) is going to be easily customizable using Amy's methods, so keep an eye out. If you enjoy my patterns and are ready to try to make a first sweater, this will be a good one (while still retaining my love of texture). Thanks again for participating in the contest. It was great to hear from all of you!Posted by Julia at May 9, 2013 07:49 AM
