I’m so excited about the number of lovely, generous companies who donated yarn to be given away as part of the book release. There will be 4 sweaters’ worth of yarn at the in-person release, and 3 more here next week. Can you believe it?

I’ll share photos of everything then, but I wanted to start off the holiday weekend with a little pre-release giveaway, too.


This is Berroco Vintage, in color “Black Currant”. (The color is a little darker than shown in this picture because I wanted everyone to be able to see the yarn.) This is the yarn used for the Dorica Hoodie:


(The hoodie is in a different color, just to be clear.) I have 7 hanks that I’d love to give away along with a copy of the book. To enter to win, leave a comment describing your favorite sweater. It can be store bought or hand-made. Tell us what you really, really love about it.

The contest will be open until the big day: April 2nd, at 5pm EST, at which time I’ll pick a winner randomly from the comments. Check back Tuesday night to see who won, and what their favorite sweater is!
