Yesterday saw the release of the new Artesano Silk Blend Book 2. Which includes two patterns from me.
and Southwold Pier
The book contains 9 lovely patterns from a talented bunch of designers for an absolutely bargain price of £3.50.
If you haven’t tried Manos Silk Blend yet, I highly recommend it. It is a beautifully soft merino and silk blend in a DK weight. It is unplied and an utter joy to knit with. It has a very soft handle but doesn’t seem prone to bobbling and a lovely subtle soft sheen to it.
I think Triogona is my favourite design I’ve made so far. It is so feminine and flattering, a challenging knit but not too hard. I just need to find the time to make one for myself now.
Jenny at Artesano has very kindly allowed me to celebrate the launch of the booklet with a fabulous giveaway. One lucky winner will win the pattern booklet and enough yarn to knit the pattern of their choice.
To win pop over to the Ravelry pattern page and come back here and tell me which pattern you’d like to knit and in which colourway. Get yourself another entry by tweeting, blogging and/or sharing on facebook and letting me know you have done it by commenting here.
I’ll draw a winner on Saturday 8th December.
Good luck everyone!
