Knitcircus giveaway

Look! It's the latest issue of Knitcircus!

CoverSU2011 (4)

There are lots of patterns to love in this issue. I really like Isis by Chriss Storch, Litha by Allison Haas, and the adorable Girly Gansey by Marie Grace Smith, but there are many other beauties to choose from.

Another one I'm particularly fond of is Michelle Miller's Saffron Baby Hat.

Saffron baby 1
She's taken the fabulous idea of using the Fibonacci Sequence to shape the crown of this hat - it looks intricate and beautiful, just as nature intended. And Michelle used my Muscadine Sock yarn (coloway: Fleur d'Oranger) in the design of this hat!

I am ready to begin knitting my first project with Maya's yarn. Looking forward to a rewarding experience using Julep yarn in delicate pink I think.! Congrats on the yarn selection used in the Knitcircus magazine, muscadine sock yarn.


That is a beautiful hat! Thanks for the chance to win a subscription.


I was *just* admiring a pair of Kalajoki socks on Ravelry knit in this beautiful yarn! I'd never hear of it before but was taken with it immediately! :)


I wish I had the baby to go with the hat.... But I'm perfectly happy using Maya's yarn for quite a few other patterns in this lovely issue of Knitcircus!


ooo this is pretty cool. I usually look at this one online. I can't see the patterns but I could always buy them if I wanted LOL.

I like super bulky yarns when I am teaching the children to knit. They get to see a recognizable project very quickly : )


I would love to make this little hat, it looks so yummy in that color!


Thank you for the giveaway, I'd love a subscription.
