"Knitting from the North"- Review and Giveaway!

I'm pretty sure that all my savvy blog readers know that I have a sweet spot for colorwork.  Classic designs or bold graphics, knitting with color just gets me excited.  I am constantly inspired by projects I see via Ravelry, Pinterest, and Instagram.  There is a wealth of creativeness and ingenuity in our craft and I love to see what everyone is working on.

For a long while, I have followed Scottish- based Hilary Grant via Instagram.   Hilary sells luxury knit items that feature beautiful colorwork patterns worked in high-grade lambswool yarns spun and dyed in the UK (take a peek at her shop- pure inspiration!).   As I was perusing Amazon a few months back, I found her name printed on a soon-to-be-released book and was nothing less than ecstatic.  I pre-ordered and waited patiently while books were being printed and then finding their way to knitters everywhere!

When my book arrived I couldn't wait to peruse all the projects.  This book is a beaut', let me tell you!  There are nearly 30 projects (including various accessories and garments) and the photography takes you away on a journey to the North- where you can truly see the inspiration behind the knits.
