Drop Dead Easy Knits, by Gale Zucker, Mary Lou Egan, and Kirsten Kapur, is the book that I as a knitwear designer want when I take a knitting vacation. It has the kind of projects that are interesting enough to hold my attention, but not so involved that they require all of it. The book features 29 patterns for everything from quick little knits, such as toys and hats, to beautiful sweaters you’ll actually wear and beautiful knits for the home. All the projects are designed so that you can enjoy the time spent knitting them.
There are three projects that feature Berroco yarns in this book. The Searsport Market Bag, designed by Mary Lou, is exactly the project I’ve been hoping to see for Indigo. It takes just 3 skeins, but it’s big enough for all your beach-day essentials.
The Oxbo socks are a quick knit in Vintage. They come in 3 sizes and both one and two color options. Shown in Solid Socks: Oats 2 (2, 3) skeins, two color socks: (MC) Cerulean 2 (2, 2) skeins, (CC) Caramel 1 (1, 1) skein. Vintage comes in 96 shades so the possibilities are endless.
And Keynote—a winner of a pullover knit in Fiora. I was lucky to get to see Gale’s test-knit version of this pullover before the book came out, and its a perfect match for the yarn—a good shape to show of the drape of this yarn’s unique fiber blend of cotton, rayon, alpaca, nylon, and wool.
This week we are thrilled to have a copy of this beautiful book to give away—better still, we’re going to give away enough Fiora to knit your own Keynote.
