As I mentioned in my last post, my new job is business casual. I’ve already started sewing some skirts and I also want to knit a few things as well since I’ll have so much commuting time.
It took some research on rav forums to find knitting patterns that are suitable for work, fun to knit, and suitable for me to wear. I’ve been collecting patterns and I’m close to deciding what’s next.
First, the yarn:
Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool in Color 114 – a true red.
Now, where you come in and the contest. Guess the pattern I’m going to make first, or even suggest one I haven’t shown below. Here are 15 contenders.
A few things to keep in mind:
- I want something versatile. Something I can wear with pants or a skirt, dress it up a bit or do a more casual (but still work appropriate) styling.
- I don’t have a problem adjusting a pattern for gauge as long as the styling and shape suits me.
- I like layering. All of these allow for camis, button down collared shirts, or even nicer Ts.
- I don’t want *too* much lace. I don’t mind looking feminine, but I don’t want to come off too frilly.
What can you win?
Upper left – 2 skeins of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Pink Blossom (1ns)
Upper right – 1 skein of Schaefer Anne
Lower left – 1 hank of Sliver Moon 50 Merino/ 50 Tencel
Lower right – 1 hank of Tess Supersocks and Baby
I’ll give away at least 2 prizes – first prize to the person who correctly guesses the pattern (or who convinces me to knit a pattern I haven’t shown here), and 1 to everyone other than the winner. First prize gets to pick from the four and second prize gets to pick from the remaining three.
So come on – everyone has a chance to win. It’s been a while since I’ve actively blogged so this is a way to encourage more of you to comment. I’d love to reconnect with longtime readers and even meet some new ones I haven’t heard from before.
CONTEST IS CLOSED – thanks everyone for participating!
The contest will go through the rest of the week. I’ll close this post to comments on Saturday morning – and announce winners on Sunday.
