Just one more!

With all the excitement of meeting our awesome volunteers and getting the goody bags ready for this weekend we almost forgot to tell you about one more wonderful door prize for our after-party!


Our good friend Kathleen Lawton-Trask loves knitting at the movies and has put together a fantastic collection of knits inspired by the moving image in her new book, Silver Screen Knits - due out imminently!

Kathleen has pulled together an incredible group of designers for this book including Ann Weaver, Veera Valimaki, Karida Collins and Danielle Romanetti. The patterns take their inspiration from various classic films but modernly-styled photographs and yarn suggestions show how these pieces are truly timeless. There's even a couple of classics for the guys!

L to R: Meryl Streep Chevron Lace Cardigan, Katherine Hepburn Fancy Trouser Socks, Faye Dunaway Traveling Top
Kathleen (who has a sweater in Deep Fall 2013 issue of Knitty), also makes a contribution with her Marilyn Monroe Cables Sweater. 

Cozy cables for comforting pre-winter knitting
The book, available in print or as a download will be available in late-September but TWO lucky winners on Saturday will win download copies for their digital knitting libraries! Kathleen will also be joining us on the day on the Purple route, so be sure to say hello, or knit with her over a pint at the after-party!

See you Saturday!
