Ballet Rock Cardigan Giveaway!

Back this fall, Lorna's Laces asked if I could put together a girls sweater in their new colorway.  For once, I actually jumped on the design and worked on it through the Thanksgiving holiday.  (It helped that it was with one of my favorite yarns, Shepherd Sport.) Between the 5 hr car ride home and breaks in cooking; I finished all the panels (front, back, and sleeves). Then with one additional day, and I crocheted on the edging.  From start to  finish the cardigan look less then a week to crochet. It would make for the perfect holiday crocheting between Christmas and New Years.  The colorway is a one of a kind colorway that makes the project pretty special.  But not to worry, Lorna's Laces has a boatload of variegated colorways that are tempting to try. The stitch pattern is great for variegated yarns by having each row nested into the next.  Besides that CJ loves her new sweater (I let her pick out the contrasting color); it used so little yarn.  So little that I have a bunch left making me think....


GIVEAWAY!


Leave a comment or send me an email and you will be entered to win a Ballet Rock Cardigan kit.  Kit includes: 1 pattern, 3 skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport (in Wheaton, the colorway pictured above), 1 skein Naturally Caron Country.  [Naturally Caron Country is a great substitute to the Lorna's Laces and looks great on the edging giving a little sheen.]  Enough to make the 12mth or 24mth size.  Drop me a note by the 24th and I will announce a winner by New Years.

I love the colors on this sweater. My daughter just turned 3, but she's very petite. She would totally rock the 24 month size. :-)
