Holla Knits Spring Blog Tour (with a Giveaway!)

I showed you my new design, Julep Jacket, on Monday, but there's a lot more of Holla Knits amazingness where that came from...

There's a two-way tie for My Favorite Design in this issue, and it's between Stefanie Pollmeier's Nachtfalter (above) and Emma Welford's Just Beachy (below). Which to knit first? Both are super cute California-appropriate summer tops. 

These designs aren't the only lacy, summery designs in this issue, though.

Tessa Gregorio created the lovely Lady Bat (above), and Courtney Spainhower's Meeting Point combines lace with geometry. 

But if you're not quite ready for light, lacy knits, there's still something for you in the form of Allyson Dykhuizen's El Matador, a bobble-encrusted cape! 

Each pattern is available for $6 on the Holla Knits site

So, who wants to win a copy of my Julep Jacket pattern? 

I'm giving away one copy to a lucky reader - just comment below, and make sure to leave your email address! 

The giveaway will close next Friday, April 26th at midnight. In the mean time, check out the rest of the blog tour:
