First things first: Click on through and read to the end for a completely fabulous set of giveaways to make the book’s release even more festive!

And now: The Knit to Flatter release party here in Boston was so much fun, at least for me! It looked like everyone else was having a great time, too–and it was humbling and amazing to see so many of you. (I know we topped 100!)

We had a bunch of little stations for people to try, including a photo booth:



Some luscious yarny giveaways:


The sweaters, all available for touching and trying on:


A personal measurement station with little measuring tapes and cards to write on (doesn’t seem right to share a picture of that!) And, of course, the books.



I gave a little talk, and signed a bunch of copies. I wish I’d had the brains to remember to take a photo of all of the lovely faces smiling back at me, but please know that you all made me feel super lucky and super wonderful. Thank you so much!


Of course, I have more giveaways up my sleeve. We have to have some fun online, too!

Three generous yarn companies have donated a sweaters’ worth of yarn to be given away, along with a copy of the book and a special “Amy Herzog Designs” project bag:

Sweater 1: Draper Vest or Cardigan.


The lovely folks at Lorna’s Laces are donating a sweater’s worth of Sportmate in the color of your choice for either the vest or the cardigan.

Sweater 2: Andie’s Cardigan.


Swans Island Yarn are donating a sweater’s worth of their lovely Worsted in the color of your choice to make this beautiful little coat.

Sweater 3: Classic Pullover.


Last but not least, Bijou Basin Ranch is donating a sweater’s worth of Bijou Spun Bijou Bliss, again in the color of your choice, for this classic cabled pullover.

To be entered to win, please leave a comment describing a must-have for any sweater you consider a “favorite”, along with the sweater you’d like. I’ll draw one winner at random for each of the sweaters one week from today on Monday, April 15.

Which, coincidentally, is the day I start off the Knit to Flatter blog tour, over at Rock and Purl. Lots of fun stuff coming up!
