Fall is Rushing By + a Soho Publishing Giveaway

Fall is fast and furiously doing its thing. The leaves are almost off the trees, the pastures are slowing down and you can tell that everyone - both human and animal - is getting ready for the coming of winter in New England. Wood is being cut and split, nuts are being gathered, and wool coats are growing longer and fluffier. 


If you are a knitter or a crafter that means you are probably deep in Christmas gift mode, have bought some new yarns and/or fabrics, and are dreaming about all the things you are going to make this winter. Me too! I've been knitting every evening rushing through another project that I cannot reveal just yet.

To celebrate the arrival of the busy crafting season and also the 30th anniversary of Vogue Knitting Magazine, I've got a great giveaway this week. A selection of five books from Sixth and Spring Publishing - the publishing division of Soho, parent company to VK. 

The folks at Vogue Knitting have been friends of mine for years. I appreciate the support they have given me when I worked at Classic Elite Yarns as Creative Director and more recently as an independent designer. They published my Color By Kristin Book too and were a joy to work with. More recently they have kicked off a series of live events called what else but Vogue Knitting Live. The next event is is this weekend in Chicago. I won't be teaching at this year's events (either Chicago or NYC) but hope to return next year when my new book is out. Great event, great people, great knitters. Have fun all you lucky people who will be going this weekend.

So here is what I have for you today! Nicky Epstein's Knitting Never Felt Better, Vogue Knitting's Stitchionary, Kaffe and Brandon's The Color Guys, Tanis' Knit Local, and Knit Noro Accessories! What a line-up for one lucky winner.


Here's how you enter: 
Answer the following question in the comments section: 
What are you knitting this fall? What pattern or project has got you hooked and you can't stop?
As always, leave an easy way to get a hold of you (e-mail or Ravelry id is best) in the comments section. US addresses only please.
Contest ends Sunday October 28th at 11:59 p.m. Good luck everyone!

Hi Kristin,

I am hooked right now on a ripple crochet afghan in ALL the colors!

RubyC said...

I don't have these books, so it would be a great addition to my library.

I am knitting on shawls. Took a class with Stephen West recently at Madtosh Crafts and it was so intriguing. So I am working on a pattern/concept for a shawl. And I am absolutely loving it. I have a concept and it is working, now I am going to put some stitch patterns to it to create some variation. Loving it.

Ready for another class with more teachers to enhance those things I have learned.

Kristin, I've been thinking of you! Am heading to the Valley this weekend for UMass Homecoming and a trombone extravaganza.

I am trying to finish projects - a Hey Teach that was begging for longer sleeves after it was all done and other UFOs in my basket.

Also, inspired by your groups' knits for my after school class of kid knitters!

I am in full Christmas Gift Knitting Mode by knitting mostly socks, but some other surprises as well. The pattern I'm addicted to right now is the Multnomah Shawl. It seems I've always got one on the needles lately. In fact, at Rhinebeck this weekend I bought a "dedicated" circular needle just for Multnomah knitting!

I just knit my first Holden Shawlette and it turned out beautifully with the sparkly yarn I used. I'm also knitting handwarmers using twined knitting I just learned from Donna Kay at Rhinebeck. Must. Knit. Faster.

Wow! what a great selection! I have recently fallen in love with accessories again, mostly I knit sweaters for myself and my husband and since I feel like I have more than enough scarves and hats those have fallen by the wayside. BUT both my kids grew so much this summer that they need new hats and mittens so I have been stash busting and diving into some Fair Isle Hats for little heads! Can't put them down to get work knitting done either lol

I'm knitting myself fingerless mitts out of some gorgeous yarn my parents brought me back from Wales, and even though sometimes I kind of hate cables, I'm totally digging the wee tiny cables I'm putting on these things.

Hi Kristen,

Wow! What great titles. I'm especially eyeing that Knit Local book--I've been wanting to check that out ever since I caught the word from the Knit Picks podcast.

So what am I knitting this fall? An afghan! And I am gifting it to. . . Myself. :) You would be happy to know that this afghan has lots of "colorwork" involved and will be a great piece to brighten a dreary November day. I've been doing it off and on since June (yeah, it's a big one!).

Thanks for hosting!

Hi! I am knitting Hedgehog mittens for my 9 year old daughter. The stitch pattern is a "pay attention" one, so I also have my "mindless" knitting for social times: a throw for the living room. And Throws are what I seem to always be making - they are so useful!

Right not, I am working on a pair of Sebastian gloves. I want them to wear on an upcoming vacation and they will go nicely with my favorite hat.

Next up, I need projects to work on while traveling to London and Edinburgh. My plans are to work on a hat by a couple of Norwegian designers, Lise Kolstad and Tone Takle. The pattern is from a book from 1992. I'm not a big sock knitter, but I might bring sock yarn and pattern along, so I don't run out of knitting while I'm gone.

When I get back, I want to start a cardigan. Possibilities include your diamond panes pullover (made into a cardigan), a cardigan pattern from Rauma, or Lloie's cardigan from Schoolhouse Press.

So many wonderful choices!

~ Good morning Kristin,

This Fall I am knitting lots of socks, man-socks, baby/child socks & finally, socks for myself !!
Also, many mittens in all sizes, colors & patterns.
Using the basic mitten pattern as a start for my knitting students, (in Betty Christiansen's Knitting For Peace book),then using Kristin Knits for patterning & inspirations.
We loVe: Kristin's autumn leaves socks, be happy colorful socks, atlantic socks & dot and checks mittens.
For myself, I wish to make the boot toppers and circles, bobbles and stripes sweater, but with a v-neck. I'd like to make the coleus scarf, shortened to a cowl size, with buttons on one side, shorter version for biking. I also want to make the sweater-tunic, with a few modifications in Bergere de France.
If Saint Nicholas surprises me with yarn I REALLY want to knit a thick poncho, also in Bergere de France, its perfect for biking.
........ children's knit toys are on my list too.
Especially, from the Icelandic Knitter blog,Helene Magnusson, the Theodora dolls, with knitted traditional clothing.
What project can't I stop ? mittens, mittens, mittens :)

Thank you for the wonderful offer.
.....and last, but not least, a knit bike seat cover perhaps in the boot topper pattern.
Best,
Shell ~
