I’m sure many of you have already heard about Audry Nicklin’s new book – Lit Knits. It’s a collection of 10 children’s literature-inspired designs – available in both ebook (now) and print (coming soon). The book has something for everyone – a hoodie and a selection of accessories – shawls, scarves, a pair of mitts, a hat, and of course – 2 pairs of socks.
Here’s a sampling of my favorites. If you’d like to be included in the drawing for the book, read the entry details at the bottom of the post.
It will be no surprise to any long-time readers that I just love the Robin Hoodie. Cables and a hood – how can you go wrong.
And, while it’s pictured on a guy, I can see it working for us women as well.
Black Beauty Rides On
Audry had me at “sock”. No surprise there. But what really got my attention was her post talking about the photo shoot for these socks. Reading about how she coaxed the horse to take part in the photo shoot and the ensuing outtakes was both charming and great background for the design. It makes me appreciate the above photo all the more.
The socks have what I would call “just enough” going to to make them interesting to knit and nice to wear.
I always love a good pair of mitts, but now that the weather has turned in the northeast, mitts are really grabbing my attention.
Not being a literature buff, I didn’t know anything about Mr. Toad and his driving hijinks. After reading Audry’s story about him, these mitts are just perfect. Erratic and reckless – exactly what Mr. Toad would do if he came upon these mitts on the road.
Enter the Drawing
Like what you see? Entry is simple – just leave a comment with your favorite design. And if you’re like me and enjoy a good back story, Audry has posted stories about all the designs as well. They really brought the designs to life for me.
Entries for the drawing will go through Saturday September 21st.
