So many sweaters! So many winners!

Thank you all for your very kind email messages and comments on my last post. I appreciate every one. Today, we have happier news–first, the winners of the online release giveaways! Always very exciting.

  • The Draper cardigan goes to Carol, who said “My must have is at least elbow length or 3/4 length sleeves (or long sleeves that can be squished up) in a really great yarn. I want it to fit great, thus the interest in the book and not have to continually feel like I need to pull it into place where it should be on my body! I think this sounds like Draper Cardigan—after I’ve done my homework in the Craftsy class!”.
  • The Classic Pullover goes to TK, who said: “I tend to favor cardigans with buttons, so I guess buttons are the must-have for my favorite sweaters. Of the sweaters above, my favorite is the Classic Pullover.”
  • Finally, Andie’s Cardigan goes to Bridie, who said “My must have is it needs to look good layered – cardigan’s are great for that but also the neckline on any of them often determines whether it will look good layered… I would love the yarn for Andie’s cardigan.”

Congratulations, everyone! And I hope everyone is enjoying the stops on the blog tour as much as I am. It’s so wonderful to see the way different aspects of the book, and different projects, pull at different people.


Next: I am honored to have two designs included in the latest issue of the wonderful Twist Collective. I’ll do full posts on each of them, but here are some quick peeks. First, Cayley:


This is a super-sweet cardigan, perfect for spring with longer sleeves and an open stitch pattern. I found the little vintage buttons in a lovely yarn shop while traveling last year, aren’t they great?

And I also designed Lilium:


Lilium is exactly the kind of thing I throw on all of the time and I’m constantly searching the stores for. Easy, classic, wearable–and the cables and lace keep it interesting to knit, too. I’m looking forward to showing you sketch-to-release posts for them both!


Finally, of course I’ve been knitting too. Want a peek?


It’s almost ready!

  1. I can’t wait to see the book in person and I love both of the sweaters from Twist. I already have them in my favs on Ravelry!

    Good luck and sometime I hope you come out west!


  2. Love the new sweaters in Twist!

  3. I just so LOVE your Lilium! And the colour! I too am searching the stores for cardigan like that! Now, I’ll knit it! Thanks a thousand time!

  4. I just don’t know how you do it all?!! All of them are totally gorgeous!

  5. I can’t wait to see more of what you are knitting!!! It looks beautiful and congrats to all the winners.

  6. Lilium is the type of garment I’m drawn to these days, too. Love the detailing. And that new one — Oh! The TEXTURE!! Can’t wait to see it.

  7. Ooo ooo ooo! I want to see more of that last project, it looks extra pretty! (I am a sucker for that sort of colour…)

    And I chuckled when I saw Lillum, I am knitting something similar (v neck, cardigan, cables around the neck/button bands) out of my head at the moment. I’d like to think that great minds think alike, but I reckon a freak weather pattern blew some of your vibes across the Atlantic to me.

  8. Congrats to all the winners. And Amy I am so looking forward to seeing the blue sweater revealed…it looks gorgeous.

  9. I wasn’t particularly surprised when I realized Lillium was one of yours – it shouted at me very loudly when I first spotted it, and has been doing so ever since! I’m trying to work out if manos del Uruguay silk blend semi solid (DK single ply from what I can work out) would be suitable, and if so whether it would hold up to the wear it’s likely to get once it’s knitted up! By then I’ll have 3 smalls under 5, and it’s likely to get worn A LOT! Any thoughts?

    I hope things are beginning to return to normality for you now after the insanity of the last few days. I can’t imagine being in lockdown and having to keep my stress levels at a point where I don’t freak the kids out. I hope there’s been some opportunity for some stress-relieving mayhem and fun over the last 24 hours or so. Xx

  10. I particularly love the Lilium and can’t wait for a “wearing Lilium” post!
