Metropolitan Knits Giveaway!
I recently got a copy of Melissa Wehrle’s new book Metropolitan Knits. I was really intrigued because the patterns are all inspired by New York, designed by a New York designer. Obviously, I love everything inspired by this city. While I thought the city would be hard to capture in knitwear, Wehrle’s designs are all beautiful and diverse! I love that there are a lot of different textures and shapes. I think she was able to really capture the feel of the city in the garments.
It’s really fun and exciting to think about New York as an inspiration for knitwear. The people here inspire me the most. I see a pattern or a shape or a color and it gets me thinking. The atmospheres of different neighborhoods give me great ideas, too, but I’m not sure if I’ve ever looked at the architecture and drama of New York with that kind of eye.
And there are so many pieces in this book that I like, I’m having a hard time choosing which one I want to make first. I love the Skyline tunic. It really reminds me of Hearst Tower with that diamond pattern. That’s definitely one of my favorite buildings! But I have really fallen in love with the Bleecker Street cardigan. It looks super comfortable, just what I’d want to wear on a crisp fall day, walking down Bleecker on my way to work!
And you’ll have a hard time choosing, too! Because Interweave has been nice enough to give away a copy of Metropolitan Knits to one lucky reader! Here’s how to enter: Check out the Ravelry page for the Metropolitan Knits book. Leave a comment below with your favorite pattern (and don’t forget to leave your contact info so I can get in touch if you’re the winner). (Only fine print: US only, sorry!) It’s that easy. I’ll be choosing the winner on August 1st!
So, which design is your favorite?
