I have some exciting news to share. This week marks the debut of a book called Vampire Knits, and I just happen to have a sweater in it. Actually…I happen to have the COVER!!
My contribution, the Lore Hoodie was a last minute one, and it had to be knit twice because the first one got lost in the mail (d’oh!). I was actually pleased to get the chance to reknit it because I made a few improvements to the closures, switching from buttons and snaps to toggles with slightly felted crochet loops.
Genevieve Miller, the editor of the gorgeous book gave a great interview at Comic Con that you can watch here. She’s also blogging about the book here. She graciously accepted my very last minute proposal, which was inspired by the long winter walks I was talking in between devouring Twilight and episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
The hoodie is knit in wonderfully light Peruvia Quick in a color that I have personally banned myself from using for awhile. Almost every Berroco yarn comes in this elusive purply-brown shade and I find it irresistible!! It goes with everything and it warm, unique and flattering. I highly recommend it…if I can’t knit or design with it, YOU should!
P.S. The winner of the Remix/Acer cardigan kit is Seanna Lea! Congrats Seanna, and thanks to everyone who entered!
