I just got the heads up that Lee is teaching an excellent knitting class at Twisted — her short-rows wavy hat project! It’s so cute (I have seen it in person and can attest to this wholeheartedly) and perfect for Northwest spring — she says that it knits up really nicely in cotton as well as wool, depending on your preference. So if you’re looking for the perfect intermediate knitting project, jump on into her class — it’s May 4th and 11th.
Natalie also passed on that CRAFT: is co-hosting a pretty amazing contest: just stitch up some original baby booties using Michael Miller fabrics, add a photo to the contest flickr pool, and you’re entered to win the grand prize: a new Singer Curvy sewing machine, a $100 gift certificate to ReproDepot Fabrics, and a feature on Craftzine.com.
Three runners-up will also receive a Michael Miller Fabrics Fat Quarter Bundle (retail value $80.00) and a $20 gift certificate to ReproDepot. All the details are over at the CRAFT: blog and the winners will be chosen June 30.
I thought that these these darling little booties Diane made for our baby might be nice inspiration for sewing up your own design if you’re contest-bound. Good luck if you enter!
