Holla Knits Blog Tour

Long story short:

there is a lovely new pattern out using Periwinkle Sheep yarn!
It is part of the Holla Knits Fall/Winter 2012 collection of garment patterns - accessories will follow next month.

I can't believe it myself, but if you subscribe to the collection NOW you will get all 6 patterns for only $18!!!

Never in a million years would I have thought that my merino sport yarn would be featured in such a cute garment as the New Girl skirt. If I was a few years (well, a lot of years...) younger, I would make this skirt in a jiffy and wear it too!

Here are some shots that Allyson, mover and shaker over at Holla Knits, has let me use:




The pattern showcases two different yarn combinations, one from Knit Picks and the other, merino sport. Colorways are "dirt" and "coralicious", available on the Periwinkle Sheep website. Of course you may choose any color combination you like!

And last but not least, here's a sweet deal: if you go and leave a comment over at the Holla Knits blog, you will get into a drawing to receive this pattern for free.

If you leave a comment here and/or on the Periwinkle Sheep Facebook page, you will get into a Periwinkle Sheep drawing and become eligible to win two skeins of merino sport. Leave your comment in both places, and your name will be entered twice.

Have fun, and good luck!
