Hot Tidbits

Annie's and the team over at Creative Knitting have filled up the remaining summer months with fantastic giveaways, knit-alongs and workshops. These are not to be missed!

Did Someone Say Giveaway?

Before you do anything else today, you need to head over to the Creative Knitting Ravelry Group and Facebook pages. There, you will find details on joining the Autumn Dream Cowl KAL (Knit-Along) with designer Deborah Helmke, AND how to win the yarn used, Noro's Taiyo Sock! The giveaway is for 24 hours only, so I'm serious when I say, "go now!" Either way, you will truly love this design, especially since it only uses one skein of yarn on U.S. size 3 needles (24-inch circulars).

Have you heard of the Lilly Brush? It is a product that is making big waves by revitalizing your handknits! Gentle on your sweater, but tough on pills, it is the perfect product to add to your natural-fiber-care toolbox. I've seen this used in person, and trust me when I say it will knock your socks off. The best part? I've heard from "people in the know" that there will be a giveaway on July 30 through Creative Knitting's Facebook page!

Three-Part Series: Learn-a-Stitch Knitting Workshop

Join Creative Knitting magazine editor Kara Gott Warner for her three-part Learn-a-Stitch Workshop Series with About.com In each lesson, she will dive into the "anatomy" of a specific stitch technique, and then leave you with "homework" to create a stitch block. At the end of the series, if you feel like taking things a step further, Kara will show you how to put your blocks together so you can easily make the them into a beach bag, lap blanket or floor rug.

In this first lesson, Kara will take you on a little journey through mitered knitting, also known as modular or domino knitting. If you simply fall in love with this technique, you can learn more in her Mix & Match Knit Sampler online video class. Visit AnniesOnlineClasses.com or click here for a free class preview.
