When Julia Farwell-Clay asked me to be part of her blog tour, I thought it would be a great opportunity to introduce you all to the Folly Cove artists, Virginia Lee Burton, and Julia Farwell-Clay. The Folly Cove Collection includes 10 different projects and you can purchase books at your LYS, online as single PDF's or as an e-book. More info here. Here is the Annisquam Beret. Isn't it beautiful?
It is a simple to knit beret featuring a little bit of color work in a flower motif, some lovely scrunchy welting produced by reverse stockinette stitch ridges, and a pretty shaped top.
Here is the shaping on the top - really nice.
The colors Julia used are 3218 Sage, 3212 Deep Forest, 3289 Julia’s Pink, and 3250 Sunflower. Of course, you can choose your own.
You can purchase this pattern via Ravelry and receive 10% off when you use the Coupon Code FFC10.
The blog tour continues tomorrow at Stephanie Roy's Blog And She Knits Too.
I also have a free Annisquam Beret Pattern for one of you. To enter - just leave a note in the comments about whatever you like - what you are knitting - how much snow you got or didn't - what you are making for dinner! Also leave an easy way to get a hold of you - email, Ravelry id, or blogger id.
Deadline for entry - Friday evening at 11:59 EST the 6th of February.
At the end of the week, Classic Elite is giving away yarn for a project from Folly Cove. To enter, go here - http://blog.
