November Knits and some FREE yarn

After a bit of confusion about the date of our blog tour post, we are here to take our turn on this fun group of postings.  November Knits is a lovely new book with many beautiful designs. Kate and Courtney have done a fantastic job!
We were thrilled when we saw that the cover sweater, Burdock Cardigan,  uses our Mountain Goat yarn. The yarn was dyed in one of our Solitary Solids (Olive) and the sweater looks like a very comfortable, easy to wear design. 

Whenever a new book arrives at the studio our dyers, office gals, etc pour over the pictures and projects. If several of the projects are flagged as ones to be knit SOON we know a book will be a real hit.  Such is the case with this book.  I want to knit the Market Jacket, someone else loves the Palomino Mittens, the Bozeman Jacket caught everyone's eye...we live in Montana and Bozeman is only a few hours south of where we live! The Trefoil Cardigan reminded us of sweaters we had a "few" years back. Fun.

To celebrate this beautiful book and the wonderful Burdock Cardigan we are going to give away enough yarn (6 skeins of Mountain Goat) to one lucky person.  It can be the color of your choice...a Solitary Solid, a subtle Harmony blend or one of our many colorways.  Just post a comment and we will use a random number generator to select the winner.

Be sure to leave your Ravelry name in the comment so we have a way to contact the lucky winner!!  The winner will be selected on Wednesday, November 14th.

Happy knitting.
