Reese chose the theme "Harvest" for her collection of patterns. She explains:
Harvest is a remarkable time here in the Columbia River Basin and inspiration abounds everywhere you look. ... I pushed myself to create designs that were unique, fun to knit and fun to wear.
Harvest contains 5 patterns, including the Pumpkin Patch legwarmers (knit in Malabrigo sock yarn, doubled);
a charming beaded and lace capelet,
these clever mitts, which feature an inner layer that felts, with an outer layer knit in superwash yarn:
a long vest, knit in chunky textured yarn:
and the Foliage hat, with cable and colorwork.
Sizing varies: the legwarmers come in one size, the mitts, hat and capelet in two sizes; the vest is sized XS through XL (finished chest sizes of 34.5 to 51 inches). Yarns range from laceweight (used doubled for the hat) through the bulky yarn used for the vest. Charts and schematics are provided, as well as lots of color photos. You can purchase the booklet in PDF form via Ravelry or Nichole's website for $18.
It's fun to see yarn companies reaching out to indie designers and helping to support their work. And thanks to Nichole's generosity, I am pleased to announce that one lucky reader will win a free copy of the PDF version of Harvest. Leave a comment to this post (one comment per person; I do moderate comments to avoid spam, so if your comment doesn't appear immediately, be patient!) no later than noon on Monday, November 28th. I'll use the random number generator to pick a winner later that evening and announce it on Tuesday.
