Holla Knits Fall 2012 Blog Tour! Giveaways! Fun!

It's been almost two weeks since the premier of the fall issue of Holla Knits, and I still can't decide which design to knit first. This collection is full of cable-y goodness and fun textures, perfect for fall. 

Henri by Ann Leachman is a side-ways knit that I fell in love with before I even saw the full sweater! I love that neckline. 

Jilted by Jennifer Dassau is an understated pullover with fun details - single dropped stitches - and a great fit. 

New Girl by Allyson Dykhuizen is a knit skirt that looks like it's actually wearable! None of this stuck-to-one's booty stuff around here. It's super cute with the daisy stitch hem, too. 

Sexxxy Librarian by Lilith Ubbelohde has another gorgeous cable up the side. This one looks perfect for California weather!

Devon Cardigan by Karin Kemper uses two of my favorite motifs - stripes and chevrons! 

And my Bombshell Shorts, of course. 

Since I already have a pair of these, I want to share the love and give away a copy of the Bombshell Shorts Pattern!

To enter the giveaway, just post a comment on this blog post by midnight on Thursday, September 27th. That's all!
