pattern giveaway – mixed knits!

the first of the december giveaways! i’m not sure why, but i’m always in the mood to give something away in december. the holidays?  the weather?  the knitting for family and friends?  i’m not sure… but here’s the deal.

to enter this giveaway, you need to respond to this post by showing me you or your family (or someone!) in some handknit woolies that you’ve made. i’ve already shown you our family in knit hats, so i’ll kick things off with this pic of m and his papa.

oh!  and tell me about the knits.  ben’s hat is this hat from my book and a couple of posts back you can read about the bean’s aviatrix, made from my handspun.

2 folks will win copies of the springling shawl pattern

you have until friday at 8 pm eastern time to get your entries in.  winners of each will be chosen by random number generator and announced on monday along with the next giveaway of the season. you’re allowed to re-gift the pattern immediately, if you so wish.  i can deliver pattern pdfs either by email or by ravelry.  now then.  let us see some of those fine woolens.

  3. Here’s my two guys in sweaters I knit for them (scroll down a bit) — http://laurieg63.blogspot.com/2008/01/back-to-back.html. Both are wearing sweaters I designed. The one on the left is Irreversible, totally reversable front/back and inside/out. My older son who it was designed for says he hates it b/c he feels like his sweater is always on inside out and backwards. The other is an EZ seamless hybrid sweater. There wasn’t enough yarn for a whole sweater in one color, hence the different color sleeves/yoke. I think I like it, though.
