Slip some color into your knits (+ yarn giveaway)

Martingale's Knit and Crochet Friday

From Slip-Stitch Knits

Remember the BIG box of crayons you owned as a kid? The one with nearly 100 colors to choose from?

Slip-Stitch KnitsBrowsing the local yarn shop can feel just like pawing through those colorful crayons. So many fabulous, fantastic, phenomenal hues!

If you’ve never tried knitting with multiple colors, you’re in for a thrill.

Best-selling author Sheryl Thies wants you to give color a spin with her new book, Slip-Stitch Knits. Knitting with two colors or more doesn’t have to be complicated.

Sheryl’s instructions are easy to follow so even beginners can make these projects. If you can knit and purl, you already know how to slip a stitch! You’re never working with more than one yarn per row, so slipping in those colors and watching colorful patterns appear before your eyes couldn’t be easier.

Why not enjoy the full spectrum of yarn colors available? Sheryl’s slip-stitch knitting patterns are great for stash busting too. If you pick up two skeins from separate dye lots, the subtle color variation can be elegantly showcased with a slip-stitch pattern.

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The winner is Patrice, who says:

"I have tried a few items with 2 or more colors. It’s fun, but I feel like I need more practice! Will sometimes use 1 skein with multi colors to get an exciting effect."

Patrice, we’ll email you about your prize. Congratulations!
