Catching up!

 Charm Gloves

Did you join the Louisa Harding Charm glove knit-along?  I've been busy the past few days playing  "catch up" to everyone else's progress in the knit-along.  This has been a busy month for me since I've been in the middle of moving and demoing a kitchen.  

Stockinette & Lace

I'm on track now though to get my gloves finished by the knit-along's June 30th deadline.  Once you get the Charm gloves on your needles you can probably knit them up in just a few days.  The cable cuff section takes a bit of concentrating but then the lace and stockinette section knits up really fast.  I'm knitting these gloves for a Christmas gift and the best part about a knit-along is that you are encouraged to finish your project within a specified time frame.  Perfect for me, a flitter knitter!

I highly recommend this project from Louisa's Three Graces book.  There's just over a week left to complete the gloves during the if you hurry I bet you could get a pair finished, too!

Louisa Harding Book Giveaway Winners!

Three Graces

Drum roll please...
I am pleased to announce the three "lucky" knitters who will each receive a copy of Louisa Harding's "Three Graces"  pattern book thanks to Knitting Fever!

Here are the Three Graces book winners' comments on which Louisa Harding yarn they would love to knit Louisa's Charm gloves in:

Raveler jls123 "I would knit the gloves in colorway royal blue (#17) Grace Silk and Wool. It is such a deep and saturated color and would be perfect!"

Raveler kcmomof2:   "I would want to knit it in Willow!  Such a light airy color and look."

Linda said: I love pink and the gloves would look beautiful in a nice girlie pink!"  

I will contact the winners I can via Ravlery and winner Linda please contact me.

Whether you won a book or not, I hope you'll join the Charm Knit-Along from the Three Graces book and knit along with us.  As for the knit-along, Louisa herself would love to join us.   She told me:  "I’m looking forward to seeing all the Charm mittens in the KAL, I’m almost tempted to join in only I am still knitting for the fall/winter collections……and we have more photography this week!"
