Carla Hibbard sent me a copy of Nancy’s new book so that I could pass it on to you! How cool is that? So, we’re going to have a contest. Not a comment contest, (although you do need to leave a comment) but a 'real' contest. A random number generator will pick the winner. To sweeten the deal, Nancy will autograph the book (at the signing next Saturday) and I'll throw in a skein of Mountain Colors Bearfoot, Raspberry colorway, and a little sheepy tape measure. How sweet is that?
Here's what you need to do to be entered in the drawing. Tell me why you love OR hate to knit Stockinette. In my opinion, Stockinette is highly underrated. It is the purest process of knitting. It creates a beautiful fabric that shows off the yarn and if purl stitches are added it creates the perfect backdrop for a pattern. Stockinette can create a classic sweater and it can be easily shaped into many different styles. It allows a knitter to multitask while knitting without the worries of tracking a pattern. Stockinette allows a special yarn to show it's 'stuff'. It is the ultimate in meditative knitting. Stockinette is the process at its most basic, at its finest. I remain a Stockinette Avenger.
Now, don't just say Stockinette is boring. What is it about the process you DON'T like if you are not a Stockinette fan. Tell me what it is about the process if you DO like it and you are an Avenger, too.
Tell me what you think by Thursday October 6th at 5:00 MDT. I'll let the winner know on Friday and will get details as to how you would like your book personalized.
