The lovely Laura of Fiber Dreams has designed two gorgeous new patterns using Posh Yarn. The patterns are for socks and mitts, and feature a pretty twisted stitch design. The patterns were worked up in Elinor & Jeannie, and the tight ply of these two yarns really helps the twisted stitches to pop. Here are some photos of the two designs:
Laura is looking for names for these patterns, two separate names, but that are linked to each other, or play off each other. She’s offering a free pattern as a prize, so get your thinking caps on! The patterns will be available soon, and we’ll try to coordinate with Laura so that we have a good selection of solid colourways in Elinor and Jeannie, suitable for the pattern. Maybe we’ll have a knitalong on the Posh Knitters Ravelry group – I know I definitely want to knit a pair of these socks!!!
So, what names would you give them?
It occurred to me that it’s been quite a while since we had a Posh Yarn competition! So, since we have two scrumptious new yarns about to be launched, now seems like the perfect opportunity. Oh, I can’t wait for you to see (and squeeze) the new yarns. They are AMAZING. Seriously. It’s been a long time since I was this excited about a yarn!!!!!
Anyway. The winner will get a £25 gift voucher to spend on the yarn of their choice! All you have to do to enter is this: leave a comment on this post, answering the following question:
What is your favourite winter comfort food?
One entry per person only, please! I’ll choose a winner at random, and announce them on Friday. We’re going to work like crazy this week to get some of this aran ready for this Sunday’s update, but I probably won’t have a preview of it ready until Saturday. It’s worth waiting for though!!!
Oh, and my favourite winter comfort food? Rice pudding. WITH the skin on. Lol.
