Beach Street Vest by Andrea Sanchez: I just want to eat that texture up. I've never done brioche before, but this looks like a really good first brioche pattern. Love the two color effect! I bet this vest would be super cool in so many different color combos. I might have to make this one just because I've never made anything like it. That's how we learn, you know.
Velma by Allyson Dykhuizen: Allyson named this design after her cat, which, as a fellow cat mom, I find totally adorable. This is another oddly-constructed sweater- the front panel is worked bottom-up, then you pick up stitches along the sides and work sideways. I might have to knit this one myself just because of the construction. Not like I need any sweaters anymore, living here in the sauna we call Louisiana, but.
So! A great collection, once again. Holla Knits is the best place to find edgy, challenging, awesome designs... which sounds like tooting my own horn, but whatever. It's true. :)
Head over to the Holla Knits website to look at the entire collection, then come back here and leave a comment about which design you're dying to knit, and you could win a copy! Be sure to leave contact information (like your Ravelry name), too, so that I can contact you if you win. The giveaway closes at dinner time on
In case you missed any of the posts, here's a blog tour schedule so you can read all about the collection, and maybe even win some stuff, but it might be too late, because I'm the last stop (the caboose!). Ah well.
