Hot off the press! The latest issue just came today!
Lots of stuff to win with this issue. To name a couple, you can win a cover kit, which is some Shepherd Bulky from Lorna's Laces to knit the beanie designed by Faith Hale.
Win some Kool-Aid, a skein of yarn and some Eucalan wash along with a neck warmer pattern to dye your own yarn! I absolutely love dying yarn with Kool-Aid! I have done this a number of times; it's so much fun, and you don't have to worry about any hazardous chemicals while dying.
You can also win Tulip's Carry C interchangeable needle set. The set has eleven pairs of bamboo needle tips (US sizes 3-13) with the cables.
Q and A with Jil Eaton - Instructions on how to knit a stitch in the row below. Her answer contains instructions for knitting the Bee Stitch, which is a very lovely stitch.
Lots of gorgeous patterns, including:
- Turtleneck Cowl designed by Lori Steinberg and knit with Artyarns' Supermerino
- Hooded Cardigan for a college bound (or not!) girl, designed by John Brinegar and knit with Montana by Tahki Yarns/Tahki Stacy Charles
- Men's Hoodie for the college bound (or not) guy, designed by Dorcas Sokolow and knit with Berroco's Vintage Chunky
There are also some patterns that combine crochet and knit, such as a beret designed by Patty Nance and knit with Northampton by Valley Yarns (I have some of this in my stash to make a cabled blanket designed by Melissa Leapman, and it's very nice yarn!)
If you are interested in dying yarn with Kool-Aid, here is a video demonstrating the process:
