You know the craft book and magazine stash has reached the unmanageable stage when this occurs:
And yikes...double Doubles! So I guess now is as good a time as any to have a giveaway (and get rid of the evidence before my family starts to wonder if there is a little hoarding problem brewing in their midst). I am happy to have come across this book in the stash again, though. It is full of fun vintage-inspired knitting and crochet patterns. Many of the projects are very wearable if you look past the somewhat campy styling. One of my favorites is this elegant crocheted cardigan.
And how cute would this hat and sweater set look knitted up in a pretty Jackie O. pink? Love the fabric buttons!
Here are the giveaway details: 1) this will be open to all 2) the winner will receive both the magazine and the book 3) to enter, leave a comment (including contact information) under this post between now and February 28th. I would love to know what some of your favorite fashion time periods are. I happen to love the sixties because of its wide range of fashions, from Jackie Kennedy's classic American glam to the waif look made famous by Twiggy to the hippie bohemian styles towards the end of the decade. Not to mention my all-time favorite fashion movie: Breakfast at Tiffany's starring the iconic Audrey Hepburn. But if I could go back in time, nothing would make me happier than to end up in Jane Austen's Regency England wearing an ethereal empire-waisted gown (and in the arms of Mr. Darcy!) 4) the winner will be announced on leap day February 29th. Good luck!
